Chalet Le Sommet - Val Thorens, France
Chalet Le Sommet is situated in a panoramic location high up at the top of the resort with sensational views over the village, valley and mountains. Le Sommet is an individual chalet that adjoins the ‘Des Neiges Residence’. It is close to the resort centre and offers good ski access as well as comfortable bedrooms, each with en suite facilities and a balcony, and there are two rooms with additional bunks, ideal for families.
A 5 minutes’ downhill walk (500m) from the chalet leads to a bridge where skiers can join the blue Plein Sud piste, ski through the resort and link with ease into the rest of the ski area.
The free and regular resort shuttle bus stops only 400m away with buses every 20 minutes for the additional convenience of guests.
A particularly attractive feature is the impressive lounge/dining room with its vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and picture windows affording stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
In addition all guests have free use of the sauna and swimming pool in the adjoining ‘Des Neiges Residence’, which is open from 1600-2000 every day except Saturday.
For Val Thorens’ lively night life a short stroll will bring you to all the action and fun. Approximate Transfer time to resort: Chambery 2 hours – Geneva 2 hours 45 minutes

Meals- Chalet Le Sommet, Val Thrones
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children’s High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
