Had a great week staying in Tolima in mid March. The chalet is lovely and although on the edge of town, access is easy to La Daille and Val D'isere even up to Le Fornet via the free bus running every 5mins in the day. Easy walking distance to the centre for après ski shops and dinner out. Hosts were great. Goo... + more

I loved the big balconies around the chalet with amazing views looking at the surrounding mountains. The rooms and en suites seem a bit outdated and old fashioned, but could also be said to be sticking to its traditional theme, different strokes for different folks? Overall I'd say this is a very cosy holiday ... + more

Stylish and traditional in design and layout, it is a big chalet, spread out over three floors. The wood panels in contrast to the modern luxuries which accompany it, augment the chalet-chic looks, to create the homely and welcoming place that both we and our guests love.

This package holiday to Chalet Tolima in Val d'Isere, 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.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dreamily trad in appearance, Val's numero...
In Val d'Isere you'll be skiing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski there, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
Famed for its après ski, you're unlikely to have a dull evening in Val. The resort has 4 nightclubs including the legendary Dicks T Bar (open from 4pm - 5am). Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at Le Folie Douce, which boasts some of the best après ski in Europe. “Bananas” is another favourite, well known for its fantastic cocktails and convenient slope-side location.

"Excellent 5 star chalet"

Katrina Haase, Egham
5/ out of 5
We had a really good week, this was the first time we had stayed in a 5 star chalet and it’s definitely one of the best chalets we’ve stayed in. It was also the first time we’ve actually had a double bed in a chalet which was nice; overall the whole layout was very good. The Tolima’s location made it very easy to get around, we weren’t in the centre of town but it was only a little walk away. The food was really good and they were very flexible if you didn’t like something or wanted porridge in the mornings etc.

"Fab chalet. Staff not so fab."

Chalet Tolima is a fabulous chalet with a really lovely, beautiful interior. The food and staff were good and the whole thing worked quite well. Its location is brilliant and the buses were excellent. Not so pleased with the staff – communication was very poor when we were delayed due to tire checks on the coach journey in. The rep kept saying we were just around the corner, when 2 hours later we were still crawling up the mountain. No snacks or drinks were provided on the coach, so apart from a biscuit on the plane we had nothing to eat until we arrived at 1-2am! At the end of the week we accidentally left a pair of insoles in our snow boots. The chalet girl said she’d look for them immediately but didn’t. We called the rep who said they’d check but came back with nothing. Then I traced the ski shop myself and contacted them, and they found the insoles very quickly and easily. Overall the service was quite irritating!

"Great Chalet"

Had a great week staying in Tolima in mid March. The chalet is lovely and although on the edge of town, access is easy to La Daille and Val D'isere even up to Le Fornet via the free bus running every 5mins in the day. Easy walking distance to the centre for après ski shops and dinner out. Hosts were great. Good wine. Try restaurant Signal above La Fornet for lunch. Good mix of people in chalet. Only downside was noise from the road in the night but that's if I have to think of something.

"Tolima good and bad"

Best points about our week would have to be Dan and Cath astounding chalet hosts! Tolima is a lovely chalet spacious and comfortable and well sited for the rapid bus transfer to lifts, or a pleasant walk if not in ski boots! Downsides Downstairs room with separate loo! You are part of the entrance walk way and the loo is not close and not kept for your use, so not good for privacy, annoying as had asked all the probing questions before hand! Don't book unless a good discount is offered. Ski hire The skimium crew used by the chalet are in a word atrocious No better no cheaper just shop around anywhere else

"Great if you're outward looking"

Jackie, London
4/ out of 5
I loved the big balconies around the chalet with amazing views looking at the surrounding mountains. The rooms and en suites seem a bit outdated and old fashioned, but could also be said to be sticking to its traditional theme, different strokes for different folks? Overall I'd say this is a very cosy holiday base - we loved being in the living area where you can enjoy each other’s company. It's all about the vistas and would probably suit anyone who's happy being more outward looking (not for those wanting boutique chic).

"Large and laid back Espace Killy base"

Sno man, Sno Staff

Stylish and traditional in design and layout, it is a big chalet, spread out over three floors. The wood panels in contrast to the modern luxuries which accompany it, augment the chalet-chic looks, to create the homely and welcoming place that both we and our guests love. The bus stop is 30 seconds round the corner and you’ll be on the piste within five minutes, making this a sought after location. After a good day on the hill, either walk the short ten minutes to the village centre to check out the après ski, or simply unwind on the balcony off the open-plan living room with a glass of wine. The choice is up to you!
