Val d’Isère - a truly elite resort

The ultra-high altitude skiing of the legendary Tignes – Val d’Isère Ski Area virtually guarantees ideal family ski holiday conditions from late November to early May, whilst the superb modern lift system whisks you rapidly up to a world of varied family skiing that really does offer something for everyone.

With our childcare base situated in the Chalet Hotel Ducs De Savoie, just minutes from the slopes, we make Val d’Isère ideal for families. It offers the best of both worlds, with a convenient location and excellent children’s ski area for the youngsters, whilst parents can explore the vastness of the Espace Killy area, while the children are safe and happy in our expert childcare.
