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.
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.
The apartment is probably the best equipped apartment we have ever stayed in, it has everything you could ever possibly need, there is more than enough storage for all your luggage, clothing, ski equipment etc. you simply walk out of the apartment block onto the slopes, and you can ski a few different runs back to the door, the décor is lovely, the beds are very comfortable and the apartment was very clean when we arrived, the owner gave us a lot of extra information about the area, transport, shopping, eating out etc. and was always available to answer any of our questions. We arrived late on the first day and simply bought pizzas from the take away a few minutes away, there are also a few bars and restaurants very close by as well as the free bus into Val d'isere where there are lots of restaurants. Most evenings we cooked and stayed in as the apartment was very comfortable after a hard days skiing.
I would definitely recommend this accommodation to my family and friends and would definitely stay here again.
The apartment was amazing
Everything you could ask for was available to make it the most comfortable stay you need after a great days on the slopes

Loungeare very comfortable, The tv video and wifi were a great spec.
We will certainly be re- booking for 2017
We had a fantastic week over New Year in this apartment. It really is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need. We had every intention of going out to eat most evenings but the apartment was so comfortable we didn't want to leave again after coming home from a hard days skiing!! Beds are all super comfy, linen gorgeous, bathrooms like a 5 star hotel and all spotlessly clean. I honestly cannot fault it. The owner is also super helpful and called to check that all was well on our first night which I thought was a lovely touch.
The apartment was one of the most well equipped places we have ever stayed in! From the kitchen equipment to the utility room with boot warmers and washing machine, Molton Brown products, bathrobe, wine chiller, great pillows etc etc the owner has thought of everything to make ones stay like home from home. The apartment was very nicely decorated too with plenty of comfortable seating. The owner was very helpful throughout and her suggestion to do an online shop to be collected from the Super U in Bourg St Maurice on our way up the mountain was great, saving time and money. It worked very smoothly and meant shopping in resort was minimal. The location is superb with its ski in ski out ability and the ski locker just by the exit door to the slope. It was easy to ski in to Tigne or Val D'Isere and the mid position of La Daille is great for anyone wanting to access the whole ski area. For us it was perfect!
The chalet exceeded our expections. Beautifully appointed and equipped to a very generous and high standard. Immaculately clean and tidy and we really appreciated the mid-week clean by charming Jitka. Informative and comprehensive 'welcome pack' which was very helpful both for the chalet and for information about Val. The chalet was comfortable and enjoyable to be in and plenty of space for our family group to enjoy being together, we also liked the fact there are plenty of games and DVD's for guests to use.Madeleine, the owner was also charming and communication and booking was straight-forward and we appreciated the phone call on the evening of our arrival, to check all was well. Highly reccomended, a 'gold-standard' set for rental properties!
The apartment building is conveniently situated on the slopes of Bellevarde and is ski in, ski out. La Daille has a supermarket, bakery, bar, newsagent, two ski rental shops and several restaurants close by. During the winter ski season there is a butcher's van in the car park of the Centre Commerciale every Wednesday afternoon. In the summer there are tennis courts and a swimming pool just below the building.
Ski: Val d’Isere barely needs any introduction as over the years it has become one of the biggest and most well-known ski resorts in Europe owing to the enormous ski area that it has to offer. It is part of the vast Espace Killy area which is made up of Val d’Isere and it’s neighbouring resort Tignes. It has 300kms of marked pisted runs and also some of the most awesome off piste skiing. It is a fantastic destination for both skiers and snowboarders alike. The lift system is extremely efficient and fast so you rarely have to queue to get to the top of the mountain. Mountain top restaurants have improved hugely over the last few years, now offering fabulous food for a delicious lunch.
If you prefer to participate in cross country skiing (ski de fond) there are 21kms of tracks.
