About Mark Yell

My wife and I are both professional people, who take great pride in our apartment as it is our personal holiday home. We ensure that you will enjoy your stay with us. Our philosophy is simple. We always treat people as we would wish to be treated ourselves.

Mark Yell purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mark Yell chose The Three Valleys

We bought this apartment, as we love the skiing in Val Thorens. We have skied here for a number of years. The snow is the best in Europe, and it has the longest skiing season. We also spent some time looking all over Val Thorens before choosing the location. We wanted a quite place, yet close to all the amenities and ski in ski out onto the main piste. When we bought the apartment, we fully refurbished it ourselves to the standards that we wanted. It is very comfortable, tastefully decorated, and has everything that you would expect. The summer in Val Thorens is also very pleasant and we also spend weeks in the summer, walking, hiking, and visiting the villages and towns around the 3 valleys. We are sure that you will love the skiing and the comfort of the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

We are proud of our apartment and we believe that it is one of the best apartments in Val Thorens. The estate agents who managed it in Val Thorens have told us so. It has all the comforts that you need in a ski apartment. In addition, it's location is ski in ski out onto the main piste. The apartment is in the best location in Val Thorens, as it is very quite, yet 150 meters flat walk into the centre of town where all supermarkets, restaurants, market and bars are. For those with young children, It is right next to the ESF ski school for children as well. According to rental agents in Val Thorens, it is now their most rented apartment in Val Thorens. We have many repeat visitors staying at our apartment. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have many repeat bookings:

Donna, Jack and Hannah, 12 Dec 2009:

Mark, Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to experience Val Thorens. Much appreciated at such short notice. We have had an absolute ball and take away some fantastic memories back to sunny Far North Queensland!!

John, 19 April 2009:

Hi Mark

Just to give you some feedback on our stay which you can use if you decide to put feedback on the website...

We had a great time. The apartment was excellent for comfort – the DVD collection came in really useful when we were chilling in the evenings. The hob and combi oven/grill/microwave were great. The enclosed balcony was a lovely space to have a beer and read. The ski in / ski out location was fantastic, quiet and a short walk from the supermarkets and restaurants. Many thanks go to the staff at Urbania who were always helpful and friendly.

If any friends are contemplating Val Thorens for a holiday I will be recommending your apartment.

Kind regards
