Val d'Isere is Cinderella to Tignes purpose-built sister, with a well-preserved historical mountain village rather than 1960s apartment blocks at its centre. That heritage has been built upon with some very attractive modern buildings, easily outnumbering the few architectural missteps that were taken as the resort mushroomed from the 1930s onwards.
Val d'Isere has a long history of welcoming British visitors, who make up around 30% of current guests, so has very good Anglo services. It's also a very glamorous place, so it can be expensive, but everyone is welcome and all budgets are catered for. If you're after some ski inspiration, time your visit to include some competition watching, but remember that the racing can reduce access to some of the runs.
