This accommodation only holiday to Hotel Altapura in Val Thorens, France departs Saturday 15th April 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" 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.

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...

"Ski in / ski out luxury"

A.D., London
4/ out of 5
The Hotel Altapura is great, it’s very smart and luxurious. There are several different restaurants at hotel which we booked into. We’re vegetarian and there were lots of dishes for vegetarians, maybe not as many as for meat eaters but we were very satisfied with the quality of the food and the choice. They had nice puddings! Our room was upgraded to one with a view of the piste, I think I would have preferred a view of the mountains but it was very nice. It was a bit hot, I kept the window open quite a lot which helped ventilate it, but they have some issues with the heating at the hotel. They also came round to try and fix an irritating noise from the air conditioning, it got better but it was never completely fixed. That was the only downside really. The ski in / ski out position was great. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was positioned close to the ski school, you just had to take one or two magic carpets and you were up on the plateau where the ski school met. I booked my lessons with the local French school through the hotel and the school was very good. There was a ski shop on the ground floor of the hotel as well which was convenient, you didn’t have to go into town to get your skis. You could buy equipment there too, I think the prices to buy stuff there are probably higher than normal, but I think the hire prices are about the same as anywhere else. There was a locker room by the hire shop as well with boot heaters, so you could literally pick up your skis, walk out the door and you were right on the piste. The logistics were very easy. We had a coffee machine in our room, one of those ones with capsules, but no tea which I missed. A cup of tea at the bar was 6 euros. So best to get a cup of tea up on the mountain. I would recommend the hotel for couples.

Perched on the edge of one of the highest resorts in the French Alps, this hotel’s run-of-the-mill exterior hides a place of sheer design genius. It’s playful and deliciously warm – the walls are covered with the sort of green herringbone wool that a dapper grandfather would be happy to have his plus-fours fashioned from, and there are crackling fires and velvety sofas scattered with fur throws. The kids have their very own concierge, who will fill their little heads with endless fascinating facts about snowflakes and mountains and cart them off to play in the white stuff. Downstairs is the split-level, granite-walled spa – the perfect reason not to ski (like you need a reason). For a start, you can trade the Michelin-man ski suit for your Heidi Klein one-piece and head straight to the steamy outdoor spa pool (try not to wave too smugly at the passing skiers dangling from chairlifts). Treatments are about pampering and beautifying, using the in-house Pure Altitude range, which positively squelches with mountain-sourced organic edelweiss and minerals. If you really must ski, there’s the Light Legs – a stone massage and cryogen wrap that improves circulation and makes that post-slope heaviness disappear. But we’ll be sticking to the Precious Eyes treatment, where smooth jade-stone rollers steeped in iced water flatten lines, puffiness and bags. From: Tatler Spa Guide 2014
