This package holiday to Chalet Les Balcons 3 in Val Thorens, France departs Saturday 14th January 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...

"A bad experience overall"

Ben Rushton, Langley
1/ out of 5
Meals generally: Portion size/control was ridiculous. The kids in the group were often getting larger portions that myself and then not finishing them while I was left hungry. Their parents were ok as they could finish up what their kids had left but I would suggest that while noone likes waste, I would have preferred to feel properly fed. We went out after dinner a couple of times to supplement our food intake. Breakfast: This was ok. I am still not convinced about spreading a whole cooked breakfast over a week with one item per day but there was usually enough bread to eat and fuel up for the day. Lunch: we did our own Tea: The cakes were good but as we were skiing longer than the other guests we rarely got more than a few crumbs Dinner: Meals were ok, again the portion size was very small for people who are going out skiing all day. It annoys me that I can go to a chalet in France and be served what is essentially English food. Part of the reason I love going to France is for the good food, this ruined the holiday a bit for me. On the plus side, the wine was plentiful. The Chalet hosts were nice but a bit impersonal. In other chalets i have been to the hosts actually bothered to get to know you and generally eat with you in the evening. It was as if they couldn’t get out of there fast enough to go out with their mates. I realize that most of them use chalet hosting as a way of getting out skiing for the season but at the end of the day i thought they could have been more committed to their jobs. The skiing was great and we had good snow but as we went as a couple (teacher) during half term the chalet was run over with kids. We were in the room off the main living room and as such were woken up at the crack of dawn by the chalet hosts crashing about in the kitchen with plates and glasses getting everything ready for breakfast. The Chalet was in a good location, nearly ski in ski out if you can deal with some slightly rocky off piste but at most a 100m walk. During this holiday I made up my mind to only go with a self catering apartment unless I could convince enough people to spend twice the money to fill a chalet during half term.
