Location - where is Planibel Apartments

NB: while the Supplier rating is 3 Star, the Official rating is 4 Star.

The apartments give easy access to the Les Suches gondola and Bosco Express chairlift, both of which take you up to the Les Suches area at 2200m, with viewpoints, cafés and an assortment of blue runs. Getting back at the end of the day is via reds No.6 or No.7, or the more direct black No.2 and No.3. There’s also the Maison Blanche lift from La Thuile town, for access to the beginner blue No.36.

There are several good restaurants within walking distance - try Pepita Café or Lo Tata for tasty Italian food made from local produce - or you can stay within the Planibel complex for dinner and drinks. The Cage aux Folles is within the building and is a great place to take aperitivo and catch sports events.

Overview - apartment description - Planibel Apartments description

NB: while the Supplier rating is 3 Star, the Official rating is 4 Star.

Perfectly placed for the slopes of La Thuile, the Planibel complex sits just a stone’s throw from the gondola, chairlift and ski school.

The apartments are simply furnished, with a wide choice of room layouts available for couples, groups and families. Add in bars and a restaurant onsite, and you’ve got all the perks of a big hotel, for a no-frills price.

After a day’s skiing on the pistes of both Italy and France, why not slip off for some well-earned downtime? For a small price you can make use of the steam room, sauna, fitness room and indoor pool.

Once you’re suitably rested and recharged, there are tons of great local dining options to choose from, or stay in and enjoy the Planibel’s own restaurant, Raclette.

Please note:

The swimming pool and fitness room are open during scheduled hours.

Getting Here

When you arrive in La Thuile, the coach will drop you at the Hotel Planibel for you to check in. Once you've received your key, you will have to walk to your apartment with your luggage. The duration of the walk depends on where you've been allocated an apartment, which may be up to 10 minutes away. Make sure you wear some sturdy shoes and warm clothing - it can get a bit snowy underfoot.

This package holiday to Planibel Apartments in La Thuile, Italy departs Sunday 13th January 2019, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Sitting on the boarder of Italy and France in a vast grassy basin at the western end of the Aosta Valley, La Thuile is a quaint resort sharing its ski domain with the French resort La Rosière. Consisting of both an old alpine village and a modern, purpose built resort, separated by the Dora di Verney river, La Thuile offers a mix of charm and convenience. Knee deep in history, La Thuile’s old mountain village dates back to the Roman era and served as a mining town up until WWII. It offers traditional alpi...
Rendez-vous at the bottom of Les Suches cable car for La Thuile’s ski and snowboard schools. From here, new skiers and boarders should take the lift up to Les Suches 2200m, followed by the La Combe chairlift for a cascade of lovely green and blue runs. Don’t miss the petite Edelweiss and Piloni blues if you’re looking for quiet slopes to practise new skills. At the top of the Chaz Dura lift (which takes you to the ski area’s uppermost point at snow sure 2579m) intermediates will find a generous scattering...
This is Italy and in true Italian fashion, the après ski remains pretty quieto until later on in the evening. Enjoy a long and hearty meal at Maison Carrel for antipasti of traditional meats and cheeses, followed by Italian specials like lasagne and cornmeal polenta. Obviously there’ll still be room for pudding, because you won’t want to miss out on a home cooked dessert in the form of a chocolate tart and other such delights. Delizioso! For more chocolate drops of heaven, the Chocolat café offers a cosy ...
