The Abricot was very disappointing to be honest. The staff were great, but we’d paid a phenomenal amount for the week. Obviously it was half term and the flights would have been a part of that, but for the amount of money it costed, the chalet was really tired.

This package holiday to Chalet Abricot in Val Thorens, France departs Saturday 15th April 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" 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.

2300m at the top of the Three Valleys, VT is the highest ski resort in Europe and part of the biggest linked ski area on the planet. While it’s a place for people who above all else, love to ski, you’ll also find some of the country’s best après including the legendary Folie Douce, as well as weird and wonderful activities like the 1300m Tyrolienne zipwire. Olde worlde gallic charm it isn’t, but skiers will wake up to find some of the best snow in the Alps literally on their doorstep, and the views over ...
At the summit of the largest ski area in the world and bordering the Vanoise National Park, this is a spectacular place to ski and board. Beginners are well catered for on nursery slopes by the Rond Point des Pistes, where the magic carpets often don't require a lift pass. Kids will love the Junior Park, while the Musaraigne and Campagnols runs in the beginner’s area and the new Deux Combes green are perfect to practice on. With a bit more confidence, take the Pionniers or Plein Sud chairs for some lovely lon...
The après ski here easily rivals other top resorts in the Alps. If you haven't already had the Folie Douce experience, head just under the Plein Sud lifts where the “dancefloor on top of the world” is heaving from 3pm. Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper plonk. Back in town, Rue de Gebroulaz is a hub of lively bars where O’Connells is the local Irish pub and the Frog and Roastbeef is a long-time favourite of Brits (if you can drink the...

"Paid a lot for a tired chalet"

Caroline, Hampshire
1/ out of 5
The Abricot was very disappointing to be honest. The staff were great, but we’d paid a phenomenal amount for the week. Obviously it was half term and the flights would have been a part of that, but for the amount of money it costed, the chalet was really tired. Obviously you can’t change the physical layout, but as an example, you’d sit on the sofa and the cushions would all slip off. The chalet hosts were a little older than the usual young people you get, they were great and the food was very good. The location wasn’t great for beginners, you couldn’t ski back unless you were a good intermediate. We had children with us and it was a bit of a trek.

"Twenty five yards from the lift!"

Enjoy the phenomenal views that are on offer from this super spot perched above the town of Val Thorens. For confident skiers, ski-in is often possible, but the 25metre walk to and from the lift is hardly demanding as you wake up each morning to a snowy peaked view outside the door. The shuttle bus which also stops outside the building is perfect for a more leisurely trip to the town, which on foot is only five minutes. We loved to end the day relaxing with fellow skiers in the luxury spa and wellness facilities, all as part of the perks of staying in the Balcons complex.
