About Emma or Richard

We are an English family who have owned this apartment for 20 years, we have made massive improvements over this time largely because we have spent so much time at the apartment and wanted to have certain creature comforts that we feel are essential to enjoying a good holiday. This is our second home and use it in the summer, for walking and enjoying the mountains and lakes, as well as the ski season, for the best skiing in Europe!!! We hope that you like the space and hope you enjoy it and respect it as much as we do. Thanks for looking.

Emma or Richard purchased this apartment in 1992

Standard apartment done out well.

  • 4 of 5

Great little apartment. I know the building very well and it has a reputation for noise in front apartments but this one is silent being at the rear. Very well equipped (with TV inc. Free sky channels +DVD). Friends staying in resort were suitably impressed compare to what they got as well. Very helpful owners too.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Three of stayed in the apartment over February half term. The apartment was exactly as described - well-equipped, clean and in a great location! Even though it is located very close to the restaurants and bars - there was never a problem with noise.

Emma & Richard have been very easy to deal with and quick to respond to any questions we have had. We would definitely consider going back to VT and to the apartment!

Great little apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in March and the apartment was perfect for us. It was clean and well kitted out and it was so nice to benefit from all the little touches (coffee, tea, washing up liquid - all those things you end up buying for mass-rental places) you get from it being a family owned and used apartment as opposed to a generic rental.

The location was perfect! Really close to the resort amenities (the nearby Sherpa supermarket does a great rotisserie chicken if you don't feel like cooking, but make sure you reserve one in the morning!) and just a short walk from the slopes. We were a little nervous when we arrived to discover that the apartment block is part of the main strip of bars, clubs and kebab shops, but we had no reason at all to worry. The apartment is at the back of the block and we had no problems whatsoever with noise (oh, and the kebab shop does a great burger!).

A great, comfy, good value apartment. The only tiny gripe is that the Saturday clean up would have been a lot easier with a better vacuum cleaner! :-)

Perfect for single, couple or young family use

A great little apartment. Well situated for shops and bars, this well furnished apartment is lovely and quiet and only a short walk to and from the slopes. I would certainly use it again and recommend it to friends and family.

Two of us stayed for a week here and would highly recommend it for a small group. Excellent location in Val T and the slope is 100m down the road. The flat was well equipped and very clean. The owners made the whole process hassle free.

A cosy and welcoming apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a great place to stay - it is cosy, clean and warm, and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. It is situated in a quiet area, however, it is also very close to all amenities including local supermarkets. We have skiied in Val Thoren a number of times and would fully recommend both this resort and this apartment as an ideal base. In fact, we liked this apartment so much, we have provisionally booked it for the following year.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Chambery at 135 Kilometres Nearest Train : Moutiers at 30 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Val Thorens is also a fabulous summer resort for the entire family offering a wide range of activities from summer skiing on the glacier, mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing. There are over 40 itineraries for walks and the 20km of paths are also accessible to mountain bikes. See Val Thorens website for further details.


Val Thorens is only 40km from Moutiers where the snow train arrives and with frequent buses up the mountain there is no need for a car. There is also a variety of airports to choose from - Geneva, Grenoble, Lyons or Chambery all with car hire facilities and easy driving / transfer distance. Cherbourg is approx. 550 miles with Calais at 700 miles, excellent motorways run from both ports all the way to Moutiers which is at the base of the mountain.


Nearest airport: Chambery/Lyon/Grenoble/Geneva at 100 miles. Nearest train Moutiers at 30 miles. Hypermarkets - if driving from any of the above airports then a stop at either Albertville or Moutiers to stock up is a great idea.
