Isola 2000 Information

Purpose-built in the Southern Alps by a British property company in the late 1960s, and only opened in 1972, this car-free ski area is predominantly modern with some controversial style architecture.

If you’re looking for a touch of the Riviera in the Alps, Isola 2000 - the most southerly major resort in the French Alps and just an hour and a half’s drive from the beaches of the Mediterranean – has that magic combination: guaranteed snow (because of its altitude – the slopes reach 2610m) and sunshine that’s pretty much guaranteed!

Just 90 minutes from Nice – a spectacular drive through the Gorges de la Mescla and the ravines of the Tinée Valley - the resort is some 10 miles from the village of Isola (from which it takes its name) with its 12th century Roman bell-tower and Baroque parish church. Since it's opening in 1972, the ski resort of Isola 2000 has now spread out - in complete contrast - with new hamlets of more luxurious, wood-clad buildings.

There’s a bus service from both the railway station and airport at Nice, so you could even throw in a stroll along the beach or go sailing in the Med if you fancy a day off from the mountain.

Ski Collection offers a range of Isola 2000 accommodation options, sleeping up to 10 people. All of our Isola ski apartments have been hand-picked and are of a high standard (3* self catered), providing the ideal base for an Isola 2000 ski holiday.

The Isola 2000 tourist office staff can assist you during your stay with any information or advice that you may need. The office is open Monday - Saturday 08:30 - 12:30 & 13:30 - 19:00 as well as Sunday 08:30 - 19:00. Phones are manned every day 09:00 - 12:30 & 13:30 - 18:00.
