Les Crêtes Blanches, Val d’Isère
Proving you don’t have to spend a fortune to stay in Val d’Isère, this two-star family-run hotel has been recently refurbished and has good-size, bright rooms. It is located in the centre of town, within walking distance of the slopes. The south-facing rooms have great views towards the Face de Bellevarde but those closest to the road can be noisy when people empty out of Dicks T-Bar below. A good choice if you want to party.
