Val d'Isere announces huge 200 million Euro redevelopment project

Val d'Isere announces huge 200 million Euro redevelopment project

A huge 200 million euro (£170 million) redevelopment project in the heart of Val d’Isere village has been confirmed today. Le Coin will be a 5 year project which will begin this autumn and will add 900 extra beds across 2 luxury hotels, 2 residences and new chalets, and will also include new shops, services and restaurants.

Despite Brexit and the decrease in value in the pound against the euro, Val d’Isere has received a steady increase in visitors in recent years and has continued to do so this season. Val d’Isere is one of Iglu Ski’s top selling ski resorts, only missing out on the top spot to its Espace Killy neighbour, Tignes. With a huge selection of ski accommodation, consistent brilliant snowfall and world class ski area, it’s no surprise Val d’Isere is one of the most popular resorts for British skiers and snowboarders.

Le Coin de Val project

The go-ahead for Le Coin de Val falls hot on the heels of the complete redevelopment of the resort’s Solaise ski area with a new high-speed gondola, magic carpet lifts, beginner area, and an American-style mid-mountain day lodge.

The Le Coin redevelopment will cover 22,000 square metres, including replacing a range of old buildings. A new underground moving walkway will connect with the main mountain access lifts and guests will be able to ski back to their accommodation. The new buildings will be constructed in a traditional alpine style with stone, slate and wood, fitting of the Haute Tarantaise Valley. Work is scheduled for completion in 2022.
