La Daille has an excellent regular bus service that takes you straight to the centre of the Val d'Isère village in less than 10 minutes. If on foot the walk will take around half an hour and it can make for a lovely stroll with the spectacular mountains that sit either side of the valley.
La Daille is located right at the entrance to the Val d'Isère resort. It is a hub for high rise apartment blocks with a few traditional chalets dotted around, and although it is not the most attractive part of the Val d'Isère resort it does provide a number of 'good value' self-catering accommodation options and has great access to the lifts and Espace Killy ski area.
