Run by the charming Garcin family, the Val Chavière is one of our most popular hotels in Val Thorens, offering a very warm welcome and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in a superb ski-in/out location. The hotel is deservedly popular with our guests and is excellent value. In particular, the quality and quantity of the food served is often singled out for praise and the reason that many return to this hotel.

Food and drink

Evening meals have a set menu created using fresh and seasonal produce, and you can look forward to a weekly Savoyard evening with fondue, singing and music. 

When you have returned from a day on the slopes the hotel bar is an ideal spot to catch up with your friends and family, enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine then head to the games room where you can find a pool table, cards and various board games.

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.
