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 excellent ski access as well as very comfortable bedrooms, each with en suite facilities and a balcony, and there are two rooms with additional bunks, ideal for families.
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 16:00-20:00 every day except Saturday.
Intermediate skiers can take a short unpisted track which links to the piste via the track from the Plein Sud run which brings you back to within 100m of the building. For the less 'gung-ho', the slopes can be reached after a gentle 6-7 minute walk through the resort.
For Val Thorens' lively night life a short stroll will bring you to all the action and fun.

Meals- Chalet Le Sommet, Val Thrones
For six days of the week the staff prepares all your meals.
Breakfast: We pride ourselves on giving you a great breakfast to start your day, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and juices, yoghurts, plentiful English tea and good filter coffee, bread freshly baked in our chalets each morning, cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. And to cap it all, we also cook a hot dish of the day for you six days per week, such as sausage and bacon or pancakes with fresh fruit, individually served. On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will prepare a Continental style breakfast for you, which will be left for you to help yourselves, and that evening you have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants – our resort team will be happy to provide some suggestions. In our Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast (including hot option) is also served on the staff’s day off.
Afternoon Tea: 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.
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. Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge at the time of booking only.
Dinner: 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.
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection. Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance.
