Chalet Thomily - Val D'Isere, France
Chalet Thomily is quite unique. How many chalets have their front door at the top, their bedrooms below their sitting room, and a dining room you can ski to - into if you haven't yet mastered stopping? The top-floor sitting room is roomy and high, with huge windows and a wraparound balcony giving wraparound views of Bellevarde and the Charvet. When the sun goes down, there are DVDs, WiFi and a log fire. Next to the dining room are the kitchen, where one of our top chefs will be getting hot and stressed, and a sauna, for you to get hot and de-stressed.
If you’re coming to Val d’Isère for the nightlife, art galleries or church, we do have chalets in more convenient locations. The main village is twelve minutes’ walk across the nursery slopes or fifteen by road, though there’s a free and frequent bus service for anyone too skied-out to walk.
But if you’re coming for the skiing, look no further: Thomily is very well situated. You can set off from the dining room, though it’s easier to collect your skis and boots from the ski locker and boot warmer on the top floor and walk the hundred metres or so to the M. From there you zoom down to the village centre, nursery slopes and main lifts. At the end of the day, most guests ski back across the M from the Rogoney chair. It is the last lift to close. Guests at Thomily certainly get their money’s worth from their lift pass…
Please note that the use of the sauna in Chalet Thomily is at your own risk (and that of your party members). We cannot accept responsibility for any accidents/injuries which occur during the use of the sauna. Children must be supervised when using the sauna.
Charter flights from Gatwick to Grenoble includes ski carriage (except 8 December 2013 and 27 April 2014.

Meals - Chalet Thomily, Val D'Isere
We start with a proper breakfast: fruit juice, porridge, cereals, bacon, eggs, baguettes straight from the famous local bakery, a croissant or pain au chocolat if you like, yogurt, Twinings tea and fresh coffee from Italian espresso pots (with Nescafé and bizarre infusions for those who prefer them).
Afternoon tea & cake: on your return from the slopes to find bread and jam, a freshly-baked cake, hot chocolate etc. left out for you.
Most people are very happy with our normal formula of canapés followed by dinner with a three-course, fixed-menu, dinner-party-style meal. The cuisine is largely French, though with a fusion of other influences – what Londoners call Modern British. With dinner, we serve free unlimited quantities of a selection of very drinkable French AOC wines and vins de pays. This is, unfortunately, only with dinner, not breakfast, and we stop serving the wine when the coffee appears.
Please note: The chalet host will have a day off during the course of the week, during which you will be required to eat out.
