This package holiday to Chalet Bobsleigh in Val Thorens, France departs Saturday 5th January 2019, 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...

"Hosts weren't good at all"

Andy M, South End
1/ out of 5
We didn’t like this chalet. The hosts weren’t brilliant: it wasn’t very clean and the food wasn’t fantastic. Some examples – the food was often burned; the tops of the ketchup and HP sauce hadn’t been cleaned for weeks and when we asked for them to be wiped, nothing happened (we ended up cleaning them ourselves). Normally you have a courtesy bar for beer, I don’t drink wine but they said they had run out of beer and would get some. They didn’t and in the end they suggested I went out and bought my own. Normally once you have your evening meal, they clear the table but here they left it all out until the next morning (one morning we had to sit and wait for breakfast while they washed up, because the dishwasher was broken). In general the layout of the chalet wasn’t great. It was open plan but we couldn’t have the fire on at dinner time because the dining chairs were in front of the fire (usually the living area is put around the fire so you can relax when you get in). A lot of the things in the chalet weren’t working. Our room was on the top floor, but when we got there the lift was out of service and after carrying our luggage up the hill at the start of the holiday / skiing all day during the week, you don’t want to have to climb a load of stairs! In the boot room, the boot warmers weren’t working. The host said they hadn’t been working for 2 weeks and she didn’t know if they’d be fixed. The problem turned out to be that no-one had turned on the switch… I knew it wasn’t ski out, but in terms of skiing in, if you weren’t an accomplished skier you wouldn’t have been able to get back. Fortunately we were and could do the off piste and make our own tracks. Loved Val Thorens & 3 Valleys area, but would not come back to this chalet.
