Situated off piste (for us keen skiers to quickly make this their favourite chalet) it's virtually ski in/out. It's also one of the highest located chalets in all of Europe, some claim the highest... either way you can't find a much more snow-sure catered chalet than this.

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Le Sommet description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Chalet Le Sommet is situated in a panoramic location high up at the top of the resort with sensational views over the village, valley and mountains. Le Sommet is an individual chalet that adjoins the ‘Des Neiges Residence’. It is close to the resort centre and offers good ski access as well as comfortable bedrooms, each with en suite facilities and a balcony, and there are two rooms with additional bunks, ideal for families.

A 5 minutes’ downhill walk (500m) from the chalet leads to a bridge where skiers can join the blue Plein Sud piste, ski through the resort and link with ease into the rest of the ski area.
The free and regular resort shuttle bus stops only 400m away with buses every 20 minutes for the additional convenience of guests.

A particularly attractive feature is the impressive lounge/dining room with its vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and picture windows affording stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

In addition all guests have free use of the sauna and swimming pool in the adjoining ‘Des Neiges Residence’, which is open from 1600-2000 every day except Saturday.

For Val Thorens’ lively night life a short stroll will bring you to all the action and fun.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Le Sommet

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's day(s) off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.

Dinner

2017/18 season cuisine

A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.

2018/19 season cuisine

Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

Christmas and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Le Sommet's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Chalet Le Sommet in Val Thorens, France departs Sunday 11th February 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...

"Brill - already booked again for next year"

Mr Thomas, Bristol
5/ out of 5
Very good stay here last year – actually going back this year, already re-booked! The property really stood out for me as it’s one of the only places that sleeps 26. The transfers were good and chalet was as expected: comprehensive service, chalet staff were brilliant and chalet was clean. Food was really good. Only thing worth noting was that when we were looking at options I found facilities like the pool and sauna were a bit over described.

"Amazing food but hosts weren't well managed"

Rachel Taylor, Northampton
3/ out of 5
It was pretty good overall, but the chalet guys seemed quite stretched and worn out. The chalet could have probably done with a good clean (simple things like the stairway up to where we all ate, which clearly hadn’t been cleaned for a while). It seemed the management had totally left the hosts to it without much guidance. Apparently the hosts weren’t told who was coming until the morning we arrived so didn’t know who they were catering for – they were running out of things like toilet roll and bacon and didn’t know what to do about it. Despite this they were really welcoming and did really well, the food was incredible. It isn’t ski in, ski out – we had a five minute walk down a hill and then a steep uphill walk on the way back. I’m a boarder so it didn’t affect me much, but my family are skiers and struggled in ski boots. You would have to be really advanced to ski in / out - the chalet’s right at the top of the hill with the wooden avalanche thing behind, which you’d have to ski around. Our bedroom was pretty standard, we had a wardrobe but you normally get a chair or table too which are useful for putting stuff on (with skiing you end up with so much stuff!). We didn’t have anything like this and couldn’t hang our coats up. Upstairs, the covers of the sofas etc could have done with a wash. All in all, the hosts were very nice and the food was great, but they just needed more help from the next level up.

"Great!"

Absolutely great week! The food was good, the staff were very friendly and the people there were nice. As a single traveller I was made to feel really welcome. My room was nice and clean, not massive but what more do you expect! It was nice to have a swimming pool and in terms of the location, if you were an established skier you could almost ski back to the door: there was hardly any walking and I snowboard so that was easy anyway. The transfers were good too.

"One of the higest and most snowsure chalets in France and Europe"

Sno man, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
Situated off piste (for us keen skiers to quickly make this their favourite chalet) it's virtually ski in/out. It's also one of the highest located chalets in all of Europe, some claim the highest... either way you can't find a much more snow-sure catered chalet than this. Great place to stay for intermediate to advanced skiers. All rooms have a balcony, most of which offer awesome panoramic views of the mountains and resort village. Access to the pool and sauna across the way makes this a popular place to stay, with all its luxurious amenities and service included. NB: you must check those extras are included before you book, as I'm writing this review in winter 2013/2014 and chalet specifications and features do change.
