Overview

About the property

Apartment in Val Thorens, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Peclet quarter, near all amenities, close to slopes

Comfortable accommodation for the independent traveller looking for great snow in the French Alps. The beauty of independence is spending more time skiing and less time queuing. The studio provides a restful retreat for up to four people. The living and dining area is comfortable and easy to cook, eat and sleep in.

Situated on the fifth floor of an apartment building, the balcony overlooks 'Le Peclet' and the glacier to the right. The studio is on the quiet side of the building and keeps you up and away from street noise. From the entrance, there are restaurants, bars, bakers and ski slopes, all within a few steps.

You can easily set your own agenda – prepare and book beforehand or make it up as you go. We are more than happy to assist with suggestions.

Val Thorens takes pride in being the highest resort in Europe and guarantees snow from November to May. With slopes on all points of the compass, there are a wide variety of skiing possibilities catering for all abilities. In addition, Meribel and Courchevel are only two lifts away from the resort.

About Sarah & John

We live and work in north-east Wales on the border near Chester. Over the previous seasons we have welcomed guests from the home nations, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Israel. We really enjoy chatting with enquirers and doing our bit to provide a great holiday for them.

Sarah & John purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Sarah & John chose The Three Valleys

Will (eldest son) & John visited Val Thorens during the Easter holidays and really enjoyed the wide range of skiing (we have only explored beyond the VT ski-pass once). The journey from north-west England was easy and we knew there would be good snow even late in the season. This has continued over the years.

What makes this apartment unique

It is just a great place to relax in. Access to the slopes is practically on the doorstep which makes it easy to return for lunch. In the evening there is an excited vibe from the bars as you return, but as the studio is on the other side of the building you only share this vibe if you join them for an après-ski refreshment.

Cumulatively we have made a lot of changes to the studio over the years. The big one was the window and balcony door replacement but most of them have been small. They have all been driven by one question – how will this make our guests’ stay more comfortable?

There are shelves and hooks for wet gear to dry overnight. Dry gear may be put out of site in the wardrobe and cabinet. The ski-locker is on the ground floor for skis, boards, boots and helmets. Everywhere in Val Thorens is near the slopes. From our building's entrance it is a 40m walk – easy to get out in the morning and easy to return to for lunch and a short rest. No smoking in the flat. Utility Room: Ski-locker on ground floor, ample space for skis, boards and poles. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaning is included, but we do ask that the studio is left tidy. (A hoover is stored in the wardrobe.) Bring your own linen and towels or hire from the key-holder. There are plenty of blankets and pillows but don't forget a dishcloth. Other: North-east facing balcony. Iron/ironing board, cot and high chair all available from the key-holder(£).

Perfect place, perfect location, perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We booked very last minute but Satah and John made everything easy and even accommodated our very late check in time. The apartment had everything we needed and location couldn't be beaten, we'll definitely be back.

Thank you Satah and John for a fantastic stay :-)

Cheap and cheerful

  • 4 of 5

A clean little apartment in a lively area of town but thankfully on the quiet side of the building! The apartment was well equipped and had plenty of storage space. It's location was perfect for a variety of bars and restaurants and the slopes were only a short walk away. We had a great week with plenty of snow and sunshine!

Good for price, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time, the apartment was clean and comfortable. It was what you expect at this price point.

The only thing that I would recommend is sorting your own fast internet for the apartment. I think it would be a worthy addition and I would be happy to pay a little more if it had this. In the end we used our iPhones as routers but this will have ended up costing us both about £25 each for the week.

Overall impressions

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was what we expected and was all we required. Other people's ideas of cleaning are different to ours. There were fag ends on the balcony which looked unswept. A previous guest's jumper was discovered under the bed together with polythene and a half empty water bottle.

We didn't get a thankyou from the key collector for leaving the apartment super clean and shining. Instead when she entered she immediately yanked the curtains closed leaving gaps. We have no idea why she did this.

On the whole we were delighted with the holiday. Good weather, comfortable accommodation, great ski slopes and fabulous restaurants.

The owners were very helpful with advice on transportation and local info. We'll be back.

Travel:

By train – guests from south-east of England may take the ski-train from St Pancras to Moûtiers. From elsewhere in Britain consider flying to Paris to join the train to Moûtiers. Take a transfer bus to Val Thorens and be on the slopes by 10:30am.

By plane – Chambery, Grenoble, Lyon and Geneva airports are all serviced by transfer buses to Val Thorens.

By car – Calais is 600 miles away, all dual carriageway bar the last 20 miles.

Feel free to ask us for suggestions on travel arrangements.

Distances:

40m to Val Thorens / Orelle pistes

One run to Les Menuires

Two lifts to Meribel

One valley to Courchevel

Further Details:

Away from the slopes there are plenty of evening activities – restaurants, free classical music and jazz concerts in the church, (French language) cinema and bowling alley/sports bar. Or enjoy a gastronomic experience with a Michelin-starred chef.

The sports centre houses an aquaclub-spa facility, well-being complex, fitness sessions, gymnasium, multi-sports and a fun-park for the children, over 23 activities in all. If you arrive early or leave late, the sports centre will store your bags while you ski. (Saturday changeover days are quiet and spacious on the slopes).

Chill out in one of the bars and restaurants or keep going in a nightclub – all nearby on the other side of the building to us. For those wanting to eat-in, there are several supermarkets nearby and a weekly farmers market. A boulangerie opposite the entrance provides fresh pastries and bread every morning.

Childcare is available for young children – day-nurseries, kindergarten and mini-clubs. The central square also has a safe, children's toboggan area.

For older kids there is the Alain Prost Ice Circuit! The ice-driving school offers some exciting (safe) fun with cars and go-karts.

And for something completely different – ice-diving. Discover a whole new world beneath a frozen Lac du Lou.
