Best to do 'Apres' the slopes...
Shops and Shopping
Shopping is a popular pastime in Val d'Isere. From the obvious ski and snowboard equipment shops to one off boutiques and even video hire, plus of course course a selection of supermarets, Val d'Isere has it all. The high street is only a 2 minute walk away from our Chalet.
Supermarkets: Although not cheap (self-drivers could stock up down the valley in Bourg St Maurice) Val d'Isere has a number
of supermarkets. 2 Spars and Sherpa are a short walk away from the chalet and stock everything from fresh fish to suncream!
Sports shops: The high street (not surprisingly) is littered with them. No matter what you are looking for they will have it. Our favourities include Billabong, Peak Performance and of course Killy Sport. The Mountain Pro shop is excellent for everything off-piste and will even hire out transcievers and other equipment.
Pharmacies: Just a short walk from the chalet the Pharmacie Solaise is located on the main high street. It is a large shop
large that stocks pretty much everything you could want. The staff are highly trained pharmacists and are a good port of call
Sundary shops + services: The newsagent on the high street sells english papers, magazines as well as stamps and typical newsagent produce. There is also aFrance Post Post Office, Library and Cinema in the Maison de Val next to the Centre
Aquasportif Leisure Centre. And of course the extensive and english speaking Tourist Office (with their very own Radio Val d'Isere (bilingual).
Bakeries and Boulangeries: Chevalot bakery on the high street is a national French award winning bakery. You have to stop off here for a REAL hot chocolate and croissant! They also have an outlet at the bottom of the slopes - ideal for lunch.
Bars, restaurants and nightlife
Val d'Isere is famed almost as much for its apres ski as it is for its amazing terrain.
Apres Ski: A drink or two at the infamous Folie Douce kicks off any session. You'll feel the vibe and hear the music long before you arrive at the top of the La Daille gondola for this on snow daily party! Next head to somewhere like Cafe Face in town for more great drinks, the Blue Note for a quiet one or the Pacific to catch up on the latest Sky Sports! Fancy a cocktail then Victors, the scandinavian local is great... For a romantic drink the bar in the Blizzard hotel is great.
Dining and Restaurtants: One of our favourites is Le Lodge for awesome steaks. With kids you'll be able to relax at Sur la Montagne, with it's play area
and earlier evening sittings. There are places best avoided which we can let you know about too! Good quality takeaways include our favourites, Val Pizza and 4 Seasons. And for delicious ready meals direct to your door look no
further than Huski - you can order in advance a range of Cook Food and
drinks as well to be awaiting your arrival.
Nightlife: if you've still got energy then head to Dicks Tea Bar or the Moris Pub when a live band is playing!
