Great place to go for Apres Ski in the mountains and is quite central to the main ski areas; there always seem to be 1000's there and is always very crowded whenever I have been. Great atmosphere and music thumping out - they have a fantastic bass system, with the occasional girls doing some acrobats on the ropes at the... More

Amazing - the first of the follies. Definitely need a credit card that's not about to expire if you want any drinks and bring ID! Atmosphere amazing and definitely worth a visit.

But noisy and very expensive. They definitely have found a way to attract youngsters with money and know how to make you spend your dollars with loud music, live shows etc. The food is good and you can have a quick meal there too if requested. The best atmosphere is after skitime with the possibility to go down to la... More

Overpriced chips and drinks. Weird Cabaret show, very French. The show starts off with a fashion parade of the Folie Douce merchandise (after the show the shop is full of 15 year old shoppers -so the sales ploy obviously works). There are a couple of singers who have nice voices, in between the songs are "dances". The "dances" are strange-... More

We went on Easter Sunday and I think the dancers were drunk, it was difficult to watch. The choreography and skills was like watching a teenage talent quest. Being the end of the season, perhaps motivation levels were low. The food was good at the restaurant, however, it was empty compared to other Folie's we've been too, so ambience was... More

Folie is in several parts. Posh restaurant at La Fruiterie. Self Service inside, and the BBQ outside. Most just go for the clubbing outside though and the cabaret which is like a dance club up a mountain in the afternoon. Not cheap for drinks, but for one afternoon it's worth it. Great atmosphere .

What a great place for a late (apres ski) lunch accompanied by fantasic live entertainment. Best to soak in the atmoshere with a few beers and/or glasses of wine to accompany a long lunch and skip the hazards of skiing back by returning to Val via the cable car which is handily placed next to the restaurant! Here along with... More

Great place with lots of atmosphere. Great place whether you want lunch or just a hot chocolate to keep you going. Finish at the end of ski day for fantastic apres ski if that's what you are looking for

We love this place. Hugely decadent but it seems that all generations love it. The nun girating to the music might offend a few but even my very Christian daughter saw amusement in it. It is experience but you have to do it at least once. With deep pockets if you go to the Fruitery but remember to reserve a... More
