New Folie Douce Village To Open At Alpe d'Huez

New Folie Douce Village To Open At Alpe d'Huez

The popular ski resort of Alpe d’Huez has revealed the construction of a new Folie Douce village for the winter 2013-14 season.

The traditional French ski resort of Alpe d’Huez has continued to be a popular choice for skiers and is set to become even more desirable with the addition of this new attraction. Being built 2,300m up the top of Marmottes 1 lift, it is set to boost the experience for many staying here.

Folie Douce is famously one of the best après ski chain in the alp's and described by many skiers as the icing on the cake for a resort! Offering an extensive range of dining, shops and entertainment for the ultimate after-ski fun.

The new Folie Douce at Alpe d’Huez will be very different to the previous restaurant, Les Marmottes, which is being replaced. The open-air club will no doubt make excellent use of the south-facing location.

This new addition will feature a La Fruitière restaurant, a Nuvo self-service, an outside bar and a Folie Shop. La Fruitière is well-regarded for using high quality local produce, teamed with its old mountain themed décor. The Folie Shop will offer a large selection of skier's favourites, including hats, classic t-shirts and I-phone shells.

However, the main attraction is set to be the daily cabaret show that will be presented on a specially built stage. The resort has said "The cabaret show will be a high class, imaginative dance spectacular, bringing the dining show concept bang up to date, and taking it high up on the mountain."

There will also be a large outdoor dance floor that will change its purpose throughout the time of day.  During the day it will serve as a venue for music content including singers and a horn section, restaurant hours will see it be decked with a lounge style atmosphere and then transitioning through the cabaret show to an exciting DanceParty.

Val d’Isere, Val Thorens and Meribel already benefit from the addition of Folie Douce and proved it is a successful addition to the resorts. Alpe’d Huez will be the fourth to showcase these exciting après ski facilities.
