    The Hotel Altapura is a self-proclaimed "ski palace" and there is certainly no doubting its glamour. Offering a bespoke luxury travel experience, the hotel stands out against the Val Thorens landscape with its strikingly bold Nordic architecture. Birch walls and furniture, brightly coloured fabrics, stone bathrooms and high tech equipment, including a Mini Mac, all feature in the irresistible rooms and suites. The hotel has thought of every tiny detail to provide guests with a harmonious modern and comfortable haven. The choice of rooms ranges from cosy doubles to family suites, all with views of the mountains from oversized windows.

    Guests who stay at the Altapura are treated to an excellent choice of restaurants. From the 2Mille3 terrace with its extensive lunch menu and international cuisine to brasserie dining at Les Enfants Terribles and unusual fondues at La Laiterie, there's every reason to stay here.

    The Spa Pure Altitude is a 1000 m² wellness facility, including an indoor and outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, saunas, "Nordic Spiral" and steam room. In a “birch forest” atmosphere, indulge in the beneficial effects of Pure Altitude spa treatments and rituals, either traditional or specific to the Altapura. The treatments have been designed to cater to the requirements of sportsmen and women, based on Nordic and Baltic traditions that soothe and provide suppleness - perfect for preparing yourself for another day on the slopes.

    Val Thorens is big on the white stuff - as the highest ski resort in Europe at 2300m, it is one of the most snow sure that you can visit in the French Alps. Although perhaps not the most picturesque ski resort, what it lacks in looks it more than makes up for in convenience and skiing on offer.

    The purpose built village is more or less on the piste and a vast array of local amenities are on the doorstep, with numerous bars and restaurants only a stone's throw away. Ski holidays in Val Thorens are a sure way to get the most out of the snow.

And most importantly, no additional charge or hefty currency bank charges! The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately... You can book these at any time after you've booked. Call us on +44 (0)20 8877 8888.

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
