    Great Location for Ski In / Ski out
    • Leisure trip

    • 5-Room Apartment for 9/11 People - 85 sqm
    • Stayed 7 nights

    Not very well sound-proofed. Lots of noise from above, below, either side and outside. Especially as people are allowed to wear their ski boots in their apartments. Booked Lift passes and ski equipment through the hotel which was cheaper, but had to walk to the Sister Hotel to collect our ski passes (can’t see why they couldn’t have been at the reception in our building). Also ski shop the equipment was hired from was by the Sister hotel and again was a long way to carry ski equipment.

    Lovely warm, large apartment for 8 of us. 3 separate shower rooms, 2 separate toilets. Hand basin in one bedroom. Well equipped with all kitchen utensils & plenty of Crockery. Nice large dining table with 12 chairs. Real log fire with logs supplied. Great location to ski in / ski out, just at the side of a learners green slope with the Pionniers chair lift at the bottom.

    The kitchen in the apartment is slightly rough around the edges and it could have been cleaner but it’s also much better than many others I’ve seen in Val Thorens! Also, the only luggage room is at the sister hotel which is a 5/10 min walk up to the top of the resort so bare that in mind if you are planning to arrive before the 5pm check in.

    The apartment felt relatively well maintained and it was nice and clean when we arrived. The lounge space in the apartment was huge and the 6 bedrooms were more than enough space for our group of 8. We made good use of the Austrian fireplace as the apartment block has its own free wood store which is a nice touch. It also had a private sauna which was clean and really easy to use, but it’s also worth heading to the sister hotel (Les Balcons) as you get free access to the renovated spa there too. The apartment had great views from the windows/balcony’s down on to the slopes and the location itself is really central to the main restaurant/pistes/market and nightlife in the resort with ski in ski out from the ski lockers. All in all we were really really pleased with Residence de Val Chaviere and will be looking to come back next season.

    It was generally too hot and not all radiators could be turned off. The kitchen appliances have seen better days and there was very little space for food storage.

    The residence is ideally located, with direct access to the pistes and a stone throw from all the shops and restaurants. Having a balcony over looking the skiing area was really nice. Lovely hot shower and it was nice to have a jacuzzi bath after a long day skiing. For our group (4 families), it was great to be have 2 apartments next to each other with a small communal corridor.

    Could have been cleaner, had bigger towels and new bedding is needed. Dated and basic but adequate.
