SKI VAL THORENS
A Val Thorens luxury ski holiday is defined by the world-class skiing, variety of pistes and guaranteed snow thanks to its altitude; Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe. The Three Valleys is a paradise for intermediate skiers, but the sheer size of the ski area means there’s plenty to keep all levels of skier entertained, from novices looking to gain confidence, to experts hunting for fresh powder. During a luxury Val Thorens ski holiday, beginner skiers may prefer the wide, expertly groomed local pistes and down towards the villages of Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville. More advanced skiers can make use of the seamless access across to the Meribel and Courchevel valleys for an endless variety of ski runs.
Luxury ski chalets in Val Thorens are generally of a high standard, although there aren’t very many, so they tend to get booked fast. Our clients often prefer the full experience of a catered chalet in Val Thorens and many enjoy the convenience of one of Val Thorens’ ski in/ski out chalets. Ideally though, the resort itself is quite compact and much of it is pedestrianised, making for an enjoyable holiday atmosphere. Many restaurants in Val Thorens boast extensive terraces for enjoying long, alfresco lunches in the mountain sun and there are several fine-dining options, perfect for fans of the finer things in life.
