Renovated in a contemporary style, Hotel Les Arolles offers a modern take on mountainous atmosphere and is placed in the heart of the highest ski resort of Val Thorens

Fantastic location 

A usual crowd pleaser for keen skiers, Les Arolles is located on the side of the piste and is close to the Campagnoles and Musaraignes lifts so hitting the slopes early to explore the Three Valleys ski area couldn't be easier. If you're new to the sport, the ski and board school meeting area is only a short 2-3 minute walk away and the nearby magic carpet lifts are also ideal if you're looking to put in some extra practice after your lessons.

Great for groups 

Hotel Les Arolles is a great option if you and you party are looking for great value for money with a touch of luxury. We're sure you'll make the most of the large bar area and south facing terrace for some après ski fun after a fulfilling day in the snow. The hotel also offers interconnecting rooms with separate sleeping areas for added peace of mind.

Relaxation facilities 

What better way to rejuvenate for another day on the slopes than visiting the spa. Open everyday, except Saturday morning, you'll have access to the benefits of a sauna, whirlpool baths and hammam. Or go the extra mile and immerse yourself in a massage or beauty treatment that uses a selection of natural cosmetic products that are all locally produced in France - whatever takes your fancy.

Why is this is an Inghams' Choice property?

Great location - Located on the side of the piste and only a short distance from the lifts and magic carpets,  guests staying at the Hotel Les Arolles can enjoy easy access onto the Three Valleys Ski Area.

Evening entertainment - Cosy up for an evening in at the lovely hotel lounge and bar which often has a live pianist, share your stories from your day on the mountain with a delicious cocktail and marvel at the mountains surrounding you.

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.
