Tignes – Val d’Isère: Find out what’s new!
Two close neighbours, Val d’Isère and Tignes, have officially adopted “Tignes – Val d’Isère” as their new brand identity. This designation is the fruit of the two resorts’ continued collaboration and an illustration of all the things they share: the ski area, the bike park, our joint products, positioning and marketing campaigns.
Winter has settled down in Val d’Isère
Recent snowfalls have covered Val d’Isère with a thin white blanket of snow. The temperatures have dropped, the Iseran Pass is closed for the winter, and the snow-covered slopes remind that the ski season is about to start. Aren’t you eager to put on your skis?
Italian cuisine crosses the border to Val d’Isère
Nested at more than 2500m of altitude in the Refuge de Solaise, Gigi is the ideal place to enjoy delicious meals and majestic mountain views. Like its Paris and St Tropez- based precursors, Gigi Val d’Isère draws its inspiration from Italian culture and history to create a unique blend of Italian style, hedonism, charm, and extravagance.
The new restaurant of Airelles Val d’Isère, Loulou subtly blends Italian flavours with Alpine traditions. Truffle pizza, pistaccio linguine or transalpine stew – Loulou’s menu focuses on seasonal products and rethinks Mediterranean dishes to give them a wintery touch. Its dessert buffet as well as a large sunny terrace are a must!
La Cucucina, a brand-new restaurant by La Folie Douce, with its décor in marble, bricks, wood and mosaics is inspired by Italian renaissance artists. Its 100% Italian team creates simple yet hearty dishes using locally sourced French and Italian products. The cherry on the cake in this new restaurant is the stunning view of the Mont Blanc.
