An excellent week; the chalet was well equipped and in a pleasant location – you could be on the snow within 100 yards (probably less if there had been more snow, but it was a bit late in the season). The food served was very good. There was a nice swimming pool and sauna which I used. The bedrooms and social ... + more

We had an awesome week here. The chalet was really good and the general standard of cleanliness was quite high. The amount of people in the chalet was just about right, not too many and not too little. Access wasn’t ideal as it’s located at the top of a hill. You walk up the hill to get back, and then you hav... + more

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 slight uphill walk to reach, but overall lovely"

Gary H., Isle of Wight
5/ out of 5
The Chalet Michelle was fine and we had a good time. The food was lovely and the hosts were amazing! It’s located slightly higher up, so you had a bit of a hike up the hill after a day on the slopes, which was a bit of a slog. We were up in the loft in one of the bigger rooms, it’s worth knowing that if you’re tall, the beams in the middle of the room are at face level, so you can easily get up in the middle of the night and bang your head. Nothing you could do to change that though, and in all everything was lovely!

"Excellent"

The food served was very good. There was a nice swimming pool and sauna which I used. The bedrooms and social areas were all fine (just watch out for the massive beams if you’re tall!).

"Really good chalet"

We had an awesome week here. The chalet was really good and the general standard of cleanliness was quite high. The amount of people in the chalet was just about right, not too many and not too little. Access wasn’t ideal as it’s located at the top of a hill. You walk up the hill to get back, and then you have to go through a hotel and up some stairs to the boot room. Both hosts were really nice and good chefs as well – the food was very good.

"Friendly staff, great food & cakes!"

Lovely chalet! Very friendly staff who were really helpful, everything was very clean, the food was great with a good variety of dishes and the afternoon cakes were amazing. Our room was fairly small but it was everything we needed, we had a really nice balcony with views all across the mountains. The chalet is a little bit on the edge of the village, it’s classed as ski in ski out but you have to be quite advanced to ski it and it could be a bit of a trek to get back for some skiers. This was the first time I’d got a package holiday through a company like you and it was much better than self catering which is what we did before. You don’t have to worry about planning things while you’re there or paying for anything in resort as it’s all sorted and you can just relax on the journey as it’s all taken care of.
