Chalet Mathilde is one of three chalets in a small residence at the entrance to the Balcons area of Val Thorens. The building is shared exclusively with Chalets Chloe and Noella. The entrance is on the top floor and a shared staircase leads to the chalets, which are each individually run and hosted.

Excellent location

The resort is one of the highest ski resorts in Europe at 2,300 metres and is connected to the largest lift linked area, the Three Valleys, so all abilities can enjoy great snow coverage and a wide variety of runs. The Chalet Mathilde has a fantastic location in Val Thorens, at the start of the day walk 100 metres along the road to the Plein Sud blue running through the village, then ski straight to the ski lifts which connect to the Three Valleys or keep right to head down towards Les Menuires.

The resort centre is around a five minute walk away, where you have access to a variety of shops, cafes and bars - on your free evening head to one of the restaurants serving delicious Savoyard dishes such as fondue or raclette. 

Chalet catering

In order to make your stay as comfortable as possible, your chalet hosts will be available to assist you with each aspect of your holiday. To fuel your ski days, they prepare home-made comfort food, including a cooked breakfast, afternoon tea snacks, and a three-course dinner with wine six days a week. In addition to preparing and serving your meals, the hosts will also maintain the cleanliness in the chalet throughout the week. As you are on holiday, all you have to do is get up and go skiing.

Unwind and relax

The chalet is decorated in a traditional Alpine fashion, with comfortable furnishings throughout the property including an open planned lounge and dining area. After a day of exploring the Three Valleys head back to the chalet to enjoy a coffee and a tasty afternoon tea treat or head out onto the sun terrace with great views across the resort to catch a bit of winter sun. 

After a day on the slopes, take advantage of the shared wellness area. Give your ski legs a break and relax in the sauna or steam-room, available for all guests within the residence. 

Why is this is an Inghams' Choice property?

Easy ski access- Located a short walk away from the Plein Sud piste you have quick and easy access to the Three Valleys.

Close to resort- The Chalet Mathilde is a short walk to the resort centre where you can find plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. There are also plenty of other non-skiing activities to keep you entertained including the state of the art Le Board sport centre. 

Chalet hosts -  Our chalet hosts are on hand to make your stay enjoyable, look forward to freshly prepared meals six days a week and relax knowing the tidying up is done for you - after all you are on holiday.

Val Thorens

  • Resort altitude of 2,300m
  • 600km of marked pistes 
  • 53 green, 137 blue, 106 red and 32 black runs

At an altitude of 2,300m, Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe and as part of the huge Three Valleys area, it is undoubtedly one of the very best. The resort has been designed to offer doorstep skiing from practically wherever you stay and has a village feel around a compact centre - where car access is restricted. The height of Val Thorens means long hours of sunshine, an unrivalled snow record and great skiing for all grades. 

The Vallée des Belleville, including Val Thorens, has received the Flocon Vert label, demonstrating the resort's dedication to environmental preservation and highlighting its dedication to sustainable development. When you arrive in Val Thorens, the best way to get around is by foot, bus, or skis - many of the hotels are in great locations, so the pistes are easily accessible, no matter where you are. To keep the slopes skiable, all snow groomers use a more sustainable fuel and are equipped with a snow coverage gauge device to determine where artificial snow coverage is required. After a day on the slopes, many of the buildings are well insulated to keep the heat in and have smart heating controls to reduce the use of energy. Solar panels are also used to generate renewable electricity.
