Save all your energy for the pistes, because everything else in the multi-award winning resort of Val Thorens is a breeze. The 2,300 metre high resort is a true all-rounder. Its scenery is spectacular. Its après ski, fantastic, and its skiing convenience is hard to beat. Nowhere in Val Thorens is far from anything, and Chalet Pika is no exception.
Chalet Pika is located in a quiet part of Val Thorens in the Chalet des Neiges Residence, one of the highest residences in the French Alps. You can ski back to within 200m of the Chalet Des Neiges Residence, and ski from 300m.
The apartment is positioned on the fourth floor of Chalet A in the Des Neiges Residence. The swimming pool and sauna are in Chalet B, access is via level three, and then its a short walk via an external stairwell which brings you to the entrance of Chalet B where the swimming pool and sauna are located.
Perfectly positioned close to the slopes, there are also pubs, restaurants and shops galore, all located within a few minutes’ walk from your door.
A 7 minute downhill walk from the residence will bring beginners to the beginner area, alternatively there is a bus stop 300m away from the Chalet des Neiges Residence.
Chalet Pika is one of the highest chalet style apartments in the French Alps, and accommodates up to twelve guests on one floor. This chalet offers spacious modern decor and boasts an open plan communal living area with wonderful views of the piste. The lounge has comfortable sofas ideal for relaxing after your exertions on the slopes. Your chalet host will be on hand throughout your holiday serving wonderful hearty food and is ready and willing to advise on ski conditions, what to do and where to go, they will offer a wealth of knowledge to ensure that you get the best out of your ski holiday.
As a chalet style apartment, the Chalet Pika is ideal for families or groups taking over the apartment due to its shared facilities and cosy communal areas, although we are happy to sell on an individual room basis if requested.
Chalet Pika also has the added advantage of being situated in the Chalet des Neiges Residence, giving guests of Chalet Pika access to the indoor heated swimming pool and the ten man sauna. This great array of extra facilities makes a real difference, particularly if there are non-skiers in your group or simply as an added extra for the little ones in the evening time.
