A short journey from Nice and Monte Carlo, Isola 2000 is a beautiful ski resort with plenty of slopes to explore. Established in the 1970s, Isola 2000 sits above the pretty, medieval town of Isola. The resort is one of the highest in the Alps, meaning reliable snowfall, but still benefits from warm sunshine thanks to the southerly location.
Isola 2000 is a great for beginner and intermediate skiers. The friendly, low-key atmosphere also makes this a good family resort. Excellent nursery slopes, English-speaking ski schools and ski kindergartens will help those with children. In addition, a challenging freestyle terrain park offers lots of fun for snowboarders. More slopes can be enjoyed at the resort of Auron - covered under the same ski pass.
Off the slopes, Isola 2000 is a peaceful resort with access to a wealth of cultural attractions. The town of Isola is full of pretty winding streets, beautiful architecture and boasts a stunning setting. Meanwhile, the glitz and glamour of Nice, Monte Carlo and Monaco are easily accessible if you have car hire.
Superb nursery slopes lie in the heart of the resort, giving you a convenient start to your skiing trip. Snow is good, and frequent, too. Well-regarded ski schools complement the settings, making this a good choice.
Most runs are above the tree line, and offer smooth cruising with breathtaking views. Ski here and you're linked to a wealth of terrain across the Southern Alps.
A good proportion of the slopes are testing red and black pistes. Most are long and challenging, and should keep you entertained. Freestyle skiers and snowboarders will love the terrain park.
A quiet and friendly resort, Isola 2000 is good for young families. There are kindergartens that care for children from 3 months to 5 years old. Ski schools here have English-speaking instructors too.
Isola 2000 has a relaxed, low-key atmosphere. Après ski is focussed on restaurants here, rather than bars and nightclubs. Unlike most other European ski resorts, Mediterranean cooking influences Isola's cuisine. If you're looking for a wider range of restaurants, the French Riviera is just over an hour away.
The picturesque village of Isola lies just below the resort. Don't miss the chance to explore Isola when you've finished on the slopes. Pretty, winding streets are lined with historic buildings - some are 900 years old - and beautiful architecture.
Nice, Monaco and Cannes are superb for a late night out. If you revel in glitz and glamour, these are the places for you to party. Don't miss the chance to indulge in a spot of elegant gaming in one of the Monte Carlo casinos, too.
