Part of the Altitude Val 2400 Residence, and with excellent access to the popular resort itself. At just two hundred metres from the piste, and with lifts five minutes away, and a ten minutes walk from the village centre, who can blame skiers and snowboarders for wanting to come back year after year.

This package holiday to Chalet Capricorne in Val Thorens, France departs Saturday 14th April 2018, 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...

"Val Thorens - January '16 Ref: Y027544"

Chris Parr
5/ out of 5
We had a fantastic holiday, only complaints are the baggage collection at Geneva and the transfer. Baggage collection took over an hour and 30 minutes for the bags to even arrive on the belt and the transfer took nearly 5hrs with only one toilet stop, if the transfer suffers delays due to the weather alternative toilet stops should be added to the journey, a number a passengers were complaining. The chalet it's self was good, plenty of food, plenty of wine and kept tidy, again only complaint was the ski and boot store wasn't big enough to store everybody in the chalets equipment. Those small complaints aside, the holiday was brilliant and will definitely be returning to the resort. A big thank you for Idalette for again sorting everything out, next years trip will be the 3rd time I've used Idalette and she's been brilliant everytime, especially with my ever changing group sizes and resort changes. Thanks to everyone at Sno and looking forward to next season

"Good atmosphere, hosts and food"

The Capricorne was very good and we were very pleased with it! The combination of the general atmosphere, the host and the people we had staying with us was great. We were just a couple and it’s always quite random who you could be paired up with, but we were very fortunate. The food was very good and we were well looked after by the chalet hosts. The location was good, we were in the quieter part of town (right on the edge) and in some respects that was good for us. It was only a 5 minute walk or bus ride into the centre. The rooms were a bit cramped and storage could be improved (we could do with a little more). It wasn’t an issue on our stay, but in terms of privacy it’s worth knowing that you can’t lock the doors. It might make you a little wary if you don’t know the other parties in the chalet.

"Two mins to the slopes + ten from town"

Part of the Altitude Val 2400 Residence, and with excellent access to the popular resort itself. At just two hundred metres from the piste, and with lifts five minutes away, and a ten minutes walk from the village centre, who can blame skiers and snowboarders for wanting to come back year after year. With balconies throughout the chalet (double check), and free access to the recreational activities available too at the nearby Altitude complex (ask which are accessible/included), you may never want to stay anywhere else.
