Le Cret is a small traditional hamlet of Val d'Isere nestled into the hillside, surrounded by beautiful mountains and offering excellent views over Val d'Isere. Old converted farmhouses which have been restored to an excellent condition make up this small part of Val d'Isere. Located right next to the town centre and a stone's throw from La Daille Le Cret has a calmer and quieter feel than the other hamlets and centre of Val d'Isere. It is an excellent place to stay as the beautifully converted farmhouses provide luxury accommodation, and with walking distance to the centre of Val d'Isere you can wander the high street enjoying the many boutiques and sports shops, local restaurants and warming bars.
For restaurants and bars it is best to pop into the centre of Val d'Isere as this little hamlet is mainly residential and quiet but, with such a short walk or bus ride into town you can dine and dance the night away.

Things to Do Nearby
In the winter Le Cret is a great place to stay for a cosy winter holiday. The regular bus service gives you great access to the ski slopes. You can get to the Rond Point in less than 10 minutes and head up the Solaise or Bellevarde side of the mountain, or take the short bus ride to La Daille for quick access to the whole Espace Killy ski area.
When the winter season closes and summer rolls around the mountains change from a white haven to a lush green, with beautiful trees, flowers and wild life. The usually sunny weather means there is plenty to do with lots of summer activities available. Le Cret in the summer is a lot quieter with many of the chalets closing their doors for the summer season, however, there are a few that remain open and they can be the perfect spot for a quiet family or group holiday.
