Phil at The Ski Company convinced us to book an apartment in Hameau de Kashmir in Val Thorens after we enquired after a chalet in Méribel! And it was a good decision in the end – the snow was great in Val Thorens when it was not so good elsewhere and our apartment in Hameau de Kashmir was stunning. It’s different from the chalet experience…there are pro’s and con’s but the location, the facilities and the standard of accommodation were all excellent!


The Armstrong G

Perfect – straight out of the locker room, over the Terrace and on to the Plein Sud piste. The Terrace was our stopping point on the way back for a wee bit of apres before heading back to our pad. The apartment was lovely, perfectly-sized for the two of us and the spa downstairs was a nice touch!


Lawrence and Joyce Mitchell

Couldn’t get the boys out skiing…such was the lure of the swimming pool. Next time, we’re booking a cold, uncomfy shoe-box so that the whole family wants to get out for first lifts!


Written by Phil who holidayed with Lou, Jackson & Campbell

We had a family Christmas in Hameau de Kashmir and it was magical. The staff were amazing and friendly and happy, the Xmas lunch in the restaurant on-site was truly excellent and we just had such a fantastic holiday.


The de Bruin families

Oxalys was perfect for us in every way; great location with door-step skiing (onto both a blue and a green piste), lovely apartment, great facilities – kids loved the pool and close enough to the centre of Val Thorens for the nights we fancied eating out.


The Atton Family

We had a boy’s trip out to Val Thorens – we normally go cheap but decided to pay a little more to stay slope-side in Hameau de Kashmir. It was so nice to stay in a place like that: lovely apartments, fantastic restaurant and bar on-site and the spa/ swimming pool facilities were a touch of luxury. I don’t think we will go cheap again…the difference in the overall package price was negligible.


Giles and friends

Enjoyed our stay in Oxalys again – third time in three years and can’t seem to see why we would go anywhere else. We love Three Valleys, we love Val Thorens and we love the Oxalys apartments. The Jean Sulpice Michelin restaurant was, I am sure, very good but we never went there and, call me a philistine, but we are glad it is being replaced by a family pizza/ pasta place next season!


Caz, Steve, Olly, Grace and Eva

Kids LOVED Oxalys. We have always stayed in chalets and so this was a departure from the norm but a welcome one! The kids loved the pool and the location on the piste was ideal for popping back for lunch. Very good standard of accommodation, thoroughly good holiday and not a bad price!


Sandy, Lesley, kids and grandkids

First time in Oxalys and I would like to think we would be back! Lovely spacious apartment (ours had a sauna in it – good call, Phil!) and great facilities – the sauna and Jacuzzi were great but nothing beats a swim in the pool after a long day on the slopes. Five minute walk into VT each night and two mins on the bus back!


Sean, Niamh, Gareth, Sarah, Joel and Izzy

Mouria worked really well for our annual ladies’ trip. Our three-bedroom apartment was spacious enough for six ladies and the decor was nice and recently updated. The apartments are very close to the centre of 1650 (aka Moriond) and there’s a decent restaurant scene up there. Recommended.


Chicks with Sticks (!), High Wycombe

Going out late in the season, we chose Val Thorens because of its altitude. We had skied Three Valleys before but, embarrassingly, never made it over that far! Great resort and Oxalys is a wonderful base from which to explore it. Our apartment was really lovely, plenty of space and great to have an open-fire, good Wifi and, of course, the swimming pool and spa facilities are a real bonus. The lobby bar was good for a pre-dinner drink for the boys whilst we finished getting ready!


Pete, Sandra and friends

We arrived on a sunny day and the first thing that strikes you is the incredible view down the valley – WOW! Apartment was lovely, a very good standard of accommodation and all the frilly bits we could need for a comfortable stay!


Steve, Emma and the girls

As two families of five, we stayed in Apt 26 in February earlier this year and had a really nice holiday. Apartment was nice, plenty of room and close to all the action. Anneliese at the Ski Company was very helpful!


The Bartlett and Chalke families

Visited second week of Easter so had to head up to 1850 (and higher) for good snow. Journey not too bad. No complaints about the apartments, good quality and sufficient space. Worth pointing out that you have to pay extra for use of the spa. Kitchen has good facilities and is well-equipped.


Graham Grant and family

Stay in Chalets de la Mouria for the pre-Xmas week and then re-booked again for Easter. Lovely apartment and good value for money for a high standard of lodgings…particularly considering this is Courchevel! Kids loved proximity to Aquamotion and we visited regularly – expensive!


Phil, Sarah, Lucy and Ben

We have skied in Méribel a lot and always looked at the swimming pool at Les Fermes with covetous eyes whilst getting to the bottom of the Lapin piste in Village…in the end, we decided we’d give it a try! The location is ideal and the relaxation area in the complex was beautiful – great swimming pool and a full Spa. The apartment itself was nice and well-priced.


The Johnstone family

With my family’s dietary requirements, we always go self-catering and so have stayed in many ski apartments around the Alps. I have to say that Les Fermes is up there as one of the best. It’s not in the centre of Méribel but in a lovely little area called Méribel Village – the apartments are slope-side and just across from the chairlift. Really great…we were very impressed!


Mr and Mrs J Yarham

We had stayed in a chalet in Méribel Village run by their sister company, the Chalet Company, and so were happy to take the recommendation of staying in Les Fermes. We loved it! The accommodation was lovely and the kids loved the swimming pool. It would have been nice to have had a chalet host but there are plenty of good restaurants in Méribel so we were well-fed!


John, Mary and the Huntingdon kids

Great stay at Les Fermes – sweet little apartment, right on the slopes in Méribel and a swimming pool to boot!


Alex S and Alex F

Loved our stay in Les Fermes. Location is fantastic, the apartments are spacious and well-appointed and the kids loved the swimming pool. I’d like to say I loved the fitness room but, to be honest, I didn’t see it!


Gordon, Sam, Katie and Ewan

We hadn’t really considered Courchevel as we had only heard the stories about how expensive everything was. And whereas we found out that this is true, our accommodation in the Belledonne was reasonably-priced! We had a lovely holiday, skied all day and cooked in our studio most evenings. There’s a supermarket, butchers & bakery very close by so we ate like Kings!


David and Iain

I was attracted to the Belledonne because of the Fitness Area – before you say anything, I know I am supposed to be on holiday and snowboarding is exercise but my girlfriend and I enjoy working out. The gym area was small but sufficient and the sauna afterwards was a bonus. The studio was way bigger than expected and in a great location – close to the centre of the town and the piste.


John R and Lisa D

I have to say we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Belledonne to see the size of the apartment – at this price, in Courchevel 1850 and with ski-in/ ski-out access, we didn’t expect a lot of space! The apartments are nice and the location is great. Highly recommended!


Dan, Cath, George and Gracie

This was our third stay in Courchevel – we love it, the skiing is so great and it is such a pleasant environment to spend a week in. We have always stayed in chalets lower down (1550 normally) and so Belledonne was a tentative decision for the family. It worked out very well – walking 150 metres to the piste instead of starting the day with a walk, a chairlift or escalator ride and then another walk was something we could quickly get used to!


George, Ann, Ali and J Finlayson

Had a great stay at the Belledonne Residence. Our place was nice, location was second-to-none – right in the centre of Courchevel and 150 metres from the piste.
