About this Resort

Description

Chalet Cristal is in an excellent location in the La Daille area of Val d'Isere; a resort with the well deserved reputation as one of the world's best and most beautiful ski areas. With its 300 kilometres of maintained slopes, Val, linked with the adjoining resort of Tignes, boasts one of the largest ski areas with a huge variety of runs for all levels. Meanwhile its off piste options for powder addicts are simply legendary.

Whether you are looking to cruise on its wide slopes or pit yourself against the best on the men's Olympic downhill run, Val d'Isere and Tignes ski area, completely deserves its world class ranking. It has a great ski infrastructure with many fast, high capacity and well-managed lifts so you rarely have to queue. Our chalet is perfectly placed to get you to the centre of the action; it's only 150m from the La Daille telecabine and the Etroits chairlift, as well as the 'Funival' funicular across the road which takes you in just three minutes to the top of the Bellevarde at 2827m.

Val d'Isere offers a perfect mix of tradition and modernity having developed into a contemporary and chic alpine village whilst preserving its sense of tradition and old charm. Enjoy exploring the centre of the old town where rustic chalets and old stone properties nestle amongst modern shopping arcades (offering great sports and fashion ware) creating a unique ambience and a great setting for some retail therapy! You can easily reach the centre of Val d'Isere from La Daille on foot or thanks to the free shuttle bus service which runs every day until around 2am.
