Val Thorens is a well-established and animated purpose-built ski resort created in 1971 at a height of 2300m. This clearly isn't a small village ski resort off the beaten track but it is still very traditional in appearance and combines the best of skiing with the best of atmospheres. Val Thorens is a unique, animated and cosmopolitan ski resort with lots of energy but at the same time has a relaxed, happy and welcoming feel - you take from the resort exactly what you want and at your own pace.

Val Thorens holds an exceptional position on a sunny West facing mountainside in the Tarentaise area of the Northern French Alps, boasting stunning views over 1000 summits in the Alps. There is a varied choice of ski accommodation from 4* Luxury ski apartments with spas and swimming pools to large standard self-catering apartments sleeping up to 18 people, plus cosy and more traditional hotels - all of which offer either doorstep, ski-in or ski-out skiing possibilities. So if you are a family, a group of friends, a couple (young or old!) or just pure ski enthusiasts - then Val Thorens is certainly for you!
