The Caron was the perfect size for all of us, we were 3 families in 5 bedrooms and it worked really well. The bedrooms were just big enough, you wouldn’t have wanted them to be any smaller but they were fine. The social areas weren’t bad but perhaps they weren’t ideal - the truth is that they’re starting to... + more

Chalet Caron was brilliant. I was recommended it by a friend who had stayed there the year before, and it was perfect for what we wanted. It was nice to have food all ready when we got in, and the cooking was all good with a variety of different meals. It’s a nice place to relax in if you didn’t want to go sk... + more

We were lucky that Val Thorens had had loads of snow the week before, which meant we had some of the best conditions I’ve skied in. We managed to ski the lot, it’s a big area and we explored all of it. There isn’t much to do apart from ski, other than ten pin bowling… I don’t usually like going back to the... + more

Chalet apartment Caron is located in the Altitude complex at the highest point in Val Thorens, offering great views of the resort. This prime location offers extremely convenient access to the slopes as the skiing is only 200 metres (approx.) away.

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Caron description

If you’re coming to Val Thorens for the altitude, why not go the whole hog and stay at one of the highest chalets in Europe. Offering modern comforts including a lovely open-plan living/dining area and a good ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms, this chalet apartment is amazing value for money. The chalet is tastefully furnished in the local Savoyard style with plenty of wooden features to give you that alpine feel. An open fire and a large balcony from which to watch the clouds go by add to the warm chalet atmosphere while the more modern conveniences of the residence, including an access lift, swimming pool and sauna (open 11.00hrs – 21.00hrs daily) complete the tick list of the modern skier.

Chalet Caron is located on the 4th floor is accessed via a lift.

This package holiday to Chalet Caron in Val Thorens, France departs Tuesday 3rd January 2017, for a 4 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...

"Just the right size, quite hard to reach though"

Tim, London
4/ out of 5
The Caron was the perfect size for all of us, we were 3 families in 5 bedrooms and it worked really well. The bedrooms were just big enough, you wouldn’t have wanted them to be any smaller but they were fine. The social areas weren’t bad but perhaps they weren’t ideal - the truth is that they’re starting to get a bit tired and need a revamp. The sofas weren’t very comfortable – just wooden ones with cushions. The pool area was a bit weird, and the sauna didn’t work which was a shame. You have to clump down in boots for maybe 6-7 minutes walking downhill, then wait for the bus or ski down a little red bit. Sometimes we went that way and would just slide down with skis but the kids weren’t quite good enough to do it at first. In all, it wasn’t the easiest place to get to. We all enjoyed the food which was very good. Helen was very accommodating and sorted us out, letting the kids eat earlier. Helen was really great and deserves a medal.

"Brilliant stay!"

Chalet Caron was brilliant. I was recommended it by a friend who had stayed there the year before, and it was perfect for what we wanted. It was nice to have food all ready when we got in, and the cooking was all good with a variety of different meals. It’s a nice place to relax in if you didn’t want to go skiing one day. The bedrooms weren’t too bad, a little small and we could have done with more storage (but I don’t know where they’d have put it). Luckily we had locker rooms downstairs for our skis and boots. We had a little walk down the hill to get to the slopes, but if there had been loads of snow you might have been able to ski.

"Awesome conditions in Jan"

We managed to ski the lot, it’s a big area and we explored all of it. There isn’t much to do apart from ski, other than ten pin bowling… I don’t usually like going back to the same place but I would stay here again.

"High value high altitude, well catered"

Bring a group and take sole occupancy of this little piece of high altitude heaven, staying in the fourth floor of one of the highest chalet complexes in Europe. Situated within the skiable pisted area, clip in as soon as you leave the chalet if the snow is good enough, making the 220 yard dash along the snow covered road to the piste even quicker, and smoother. If you really feel like you need to save your legs only for the snowboarding or skiing, don’t forget to take the bus service which stops right outside your door, making the journey from bed to piste to bar even shorter!
