“Party time”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Great atmosphere any time or day of the week! Good food and good drink (if a little more expensive) but they are making a great name for themselves.

“Really great Apres!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

OK so I had read the reviews and various friends had told me to visit La Folie Douce during my visit, we ended up doing so 3 times while i Val Thorens. The apres which kicks off around half 2/3 is really worth it with a mixture of great club music and lots and lots of dancing. It will be busy and a round isnt particularly cheap however it is definitely worth. The DJ and live entertainer keeping the crowd going do a great job and really get everyone going. It Is hard to explain this place so check out the various youtube videos which show the unique atmosphere!

One word of warning, if you are a timid skier then leave before the main crowd, when you have several hundred drunk people storming down the mountain it can be carnage. Literally people on the deck the whole way down! Very funny (especially after beers yourself) but actually quite dangerous at times.

Awesome venue!

“Interesting place lots of fun.”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

It was amazing sight as you came back from your days skiing. It is located on your way back to Val Thorens. It is a very inviting when you stand at the top of the mountain looking over the crowd with music blasting out over the valley. As you slide down the mountain the atmosphere gets better and better as you see the DJ's building the crowd and dancing over them from a balcony! A great way to finish the days skiing. Think that runsfrom around 15:00 to about 17:00.

“Great atmosphere and location”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I went to La Folie Douce after a day on the slopes and was attracted by the crowds and music. Had a few beers, soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed the views from the outside deck. Just be sure you are able to ski down after!

great lunch - reasonable value and well cooked - plenty of choice - haven't tried the restaurant but the self-service is better than most in VT :)
