Val d’Isère is a beautiful ski resort in the Alpes, , near the Italian border. The weather there remains cold throughout the year. During the winters the temperature goes down to about – 4.5°C and is at a steady 12.5°C during the summers. More than its beauty, Val d’Isère is famous for the people living there. Opposite to its weather, the people are extremely warm and welcoming. All of them are well acquainted with one another and it almost feels like everyone is a part of a big family. The town is aesthetically decorated during the festival of Christmas and the snow adds to the heavenly sight. It is a must spot for a memorable vacation. I lived there for about 10 days and it easily became my second home and the people my family.
