La Folie Douce, Val d'Isere

Dance Like You're in Ibiza - Amazing Live Music Right on the Slopes

This famous apres ski bar and restaurant is situated at the top of the Daille cable car and is the place to party on the piste in Espace Killy ski area.

The bar has a huge outdoor dance floor where you will often find the champagne flowing and resident DJs/singers keeping the party going with great tunes.

Luc Reversade, the owner of the Folie Douce chain, has succeeded in bring the dance floors of Ibiza, Turkey and Florida to the middle of the ski slopes. Nothing was going to stop his dream becoming reality; the outside bar even has specially heated-column pumps to stop the beer from freezing in sub-zero temperatures! Following the bar's success in Val d'Isere, there are now chains in Val ThorensMeribel and Alpe d'Huez.

For those that plan on visiting the bar to enjoy apres-ski, you'll find the musical content evolves throughout the day with lounge style music during restaurant hours, transitioning from cabaret show to a full-on Dance (DJ mix from 15:00 - 17:00 featuring live musicians and singers, grooving on everything from Deep House to a harder, Electro sound).

However, the Folie Douce is more than just an apres-ski bar. It also includes a great stylish self-service restaurant, Nuvoself, as well as the mountain restaurant La Fruitiere which are open from midday to 3:30pm. These restaurants offer a variety of delicious fresh dishes to keep you going on the mountain.

The Folie Douce is open daily from 09:00 to 17:00 so you can always pop in for a coffee first thing before returning for apres at the end of the day.

  • "Onesies to keep you warm - crazy dancers on the stage - drink champagne, beer, or anything you wish either in perfect style or in the self service restaurant. Dining on the terrace in the sun, with music and fun is fantastic. If you are a non-skier you can access this restaurant by tele cabin - well worth it, the views are fabulous." - Customer Feedback
  • "Usually went near end of the day when the groups were singing on the roof, place was jumping mostly from crowds outside. There were 4 of us around 60 years and 2 who were in their twenties, we all were dancing in the snow and really enjoyed it. They have promotions and give out freebies quite often. All the acts we saw were brilliant. The drinks were a bit pricey, but this is France and up a mountain. We tried to finish ski-ing there every night. Just a fun place even at our ages. Have eaten there before and food was good. Want a bit of different après-ski , this is the place." - Customer Feedback
  • "What can you say about this unique place? You ski down the fantastic 'Val' slopes and arrive in a crazy world of wild caberet, dancing on tables, good food and cold beers. Perfect fun way to spend an afternoon when the legs are slowing down" - Customer Feedback
  • "We'd heard about this place before our trip and dad been told to get there by three to avoid disappointment. We checked it out on day 2 for lunch and it was already lively. We got there about 2:30 on Wednesday and it was already rammed. So be warned you mustn't miss it and need to get there rarly. Not for the feint hearted" - Customer Feedback
