Great week at the Carambole, our chalet maid Nonnie was awesome and she made the most amazing cakes! The lift was a bit slow, but that’s the only thing I can think of that could be better. Overall I would recommend staying here! + more

Luxury, location and magnificent views, there is not much to fault when the chalet hosts bring their A-game and the wine is flowing. It's a short five minute walk from the resort centre, and the bus stop for easy access is a matter of feet away from your front door. Crucially, at less than 100ft from the lifts,... + more

This all inclusive holiday to Chalet Carambole 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...

"Nonnie's cakes were AMAZING"

"Super close to the lift & a nice ambiance"

Luxury, location and magnificent views, there is not much to fault when the chalet hosts bring their A-game and the wine is flowing. It's a short five minute walk from the resort centre, and the bus stop for easy access is a matter of feet away from your front door. Crucially, at less than 100ft from the lifts, you're often able to ski right back to within a snowball's throw of your room. Local bars, shops, and ski hire are also within a whisker. All in all this is a great example and a contributing factor to our guests choosing to come to Val Thorens again and again.
