The Chalets



Le Chalet Altitude is situated five minutes on foot from the centre of Val Thorens' Balcons district and 100 metres from the ski slopes, with a free shuttle bus which runs during the day.

The nearest supermarket is just under 20km from the chalet, and the ski school is just a short walk away, ideal for family ski holidays. The property is ideally located, not just for its easy access to local amenities and ski facilities, but for its breath-taking views of Val Thorens. This snowy haven is one of Europe's best loved resorts for winter sports and can be found in the mountainous Tarentaise Valley in the western Savoie region of the French Alps.



The residence Le Chalet Altitude consists of 20 traditionally decorated apartments, built in a classic Savoyard style. The warm, wooden interiors of these apartments are warm and welcoming, especially after a long day of skiing and exploring.

The cosy chalet offers ski in/ski out facilities, ideal for those wanting to enjoy as much time on the pistes as possible before relaxing by the fireplace in the living room in the evening. As well as this, you will find first class luxuries available in both the communal areas and in the private apartments of the residence, including a heated indoor swimming pool, a wellness centre and a pub. The chalet also features free Wi-Fi at reception and a covered car park.


Board Options

The apartments of Le Chalet Altitude are self-catered. Guests are invited to make full use of the modern kitchenette facilities, including a microwave, stove, oven, dishwasher and fridge, with close proximity to the local supermarket for keeping the cupboards stocked with groceries. Freshly baked bread can be delivered to your apartment every morning for breakfast, simply order and pay at reception. Those wanting to eat out will find an exceptional selection of restaurants serving hearty French, British and other international fare in the resort.


The Resort


Val Thorens

Le Chalet Altitude is located in the heart of the Balcons district of the purpose built Val Thorens ski resort, which can be found in the heart of the French Alps within the Réserve Naturelle du Plan de la Tuéda national park. As one of France's most popular winter holiday destinations, this Alpine region boasts an array of sporting activities and picturesque surroundings, with the resort itself offering a range of restaurants and bars, as well as a bustling après ski scene. With stunning surroundings of sparkling white mountains and deep forests it’s the ideal place for those looking to enjoy the best of both worlds.


Ski Area

Val Thorens is situated at an altitude of 2300 metres, making it the highest ski resort in Europe and ideal for keen skiers, with one of the longest ski seasons in the Alps. During the winter months, the entire area is covered with sparkling white snow, making it an ideal destination for skiing holidays. With 140 km of pistes to be explored, you’ll find plenty to do in Val Thorens itself, as well as access to the 3 Valleys, which is the largest linked ski area in the world. The 3 Valleys is renowned for its seemingly endless terrain which is so extensive and widely varied that it is perfectly suited for every level of skiing experience. Situated at an altitude of between 1800 and 3230 metres, the 3 Valleys boasts 600km of high quality pistes of 183 green, 135 blue, 119 red and 33 black runs. This lively ski area is also famously home to some of the most stunning alpine views in France.



For adventurous holidaymakers looking for an alternative to skiing, there is no shortage of exciting activities to try in Val Thorens. Airbagging involves leaping from high falls on to a giant cushion of air and is sure to get the adrenaline pumping. Another exciting activity is ice diving, which involves scuba diving in the freezing waters of Lac du Lou and is a unique way to explore the Alpine landscape, along with paragliding and dog sledding.
