There are regular buses from Geneva airport which take around 4 hours. Please look on-line for the timetable. NB: Be careful to see when the buses leave, as the timetable varies according to the day of the week. There is a small line at the top of the timetable with the days of the week that buses are operational – not very obvious! Alternatively taxis are around €320 and take between 2.5 to 3 hours to reach Val d’Isere.
Flights are also to Lyon and Chambery.
The resort: Activities on offer are husky sledding, ice driving, ice skating, paragliding (paragliding) snow-mobiling, snowshoe walking (Raquette a neige) with 24 km of marked paths for winter walking trails.
This year a new leisure centre has opened which has a swimming pool (250 m²), leisure pool (430 m²), climbing area, multi-activity sports hall, fitness suite, gym, 2 squash courts and a wellness zone (sauna, spa, cold baths, hydro-massage, etc). You gain 1 free pool entry with a 2-15 day lift pass.
Perhaps you would prefer to try pilates or yoga or maybe a game of chess or bridge, or simply go to the cinema showing different films every night and also on very bad weather days.
One evening why not try dinner in an igloo at the top of the mountain. Ascent is by helicopter or skidoo, dinner in the igloo, followed by a torchlight descent. Alternatively on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 5.30pm discover the recreational fun zone at the foot of the slopes and have an introduction to Snake Gliss and Airboard. Also there is floodlit giant slalom and cross country ski racing by night.
Mondays are market day: local Savoie food produce, clothes, sweets and gifts.
On Thursday nights the main high street of Val d’Isere is closed to become a pedestrian zone where you will find live music, ice and snow sculpting and parades.
There are an abundance of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to sample with a huge variety of cuisine, and of course many shops to tempt you with either clothes, interiors for the home or delicious food.
If you have never been to Val d’Isere it is definitely a place you should visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to inform you that we are enjoying a lot our stay in your charming apartment. All the furnitures are perfect. We can find all the little things needed in a house , especially in the kitchen.
So, we don't feel like people renting a house, but like friends invited in a private and sweet home. I just have to thank you for this great holiday. Many thanks also to jitka who is really professional and helpful.
