Instead of the iconic sound of cicadas, sand castles, lazy days by the pool, prawns and mangoes .. think of a cosy fireplace with French food, wine and chocolate; evening walks along snow covered paths flanked with real Christmas trees and fairy-tale festive lights; and riding horse-drawn sleighs with tinkling bells..
The historic village of Val d’Isere is built around stone, alpine farm-houses and an 11th century church and celebrates the festive season with a display of snow sculptures and giant Christmas bauble decorations. And, of course there is the all-important visit of Father Christmas and his reindeer.
In addition to experiencing a white Christmas at Val D’Isere, you can explore the massive 300 kms of ski runs of the Val d’Isere – Tignes ski area. For avid snowboarders there is the impressive Snowpark located at 2500m on the main mountain of Bellevarde.
