Les Balcons de Val Thorens
Les Balcons de Val Thorens is one of our personal favourite places to stay in the brilliant resort of Val Thorens. These four star self catering apartments are located in the upper levels of the Val Thorens resort - in a peaceful setting providing the perfect place to relax whilst still maintaining proximity to the main resort, which is around a 10-minute downhill walk away.
Les Balcons de Val Thorens is made up of six different chalets, all of which have been built in the traditional alpine style using wood and stone. There are excellent views of the mountains thanks to the location of this accommodation, and there’s a huge number of different apartment options available, with smaller apartments sleeping two guests right up to larger apartments which can sleep up to eighteen. The larger apartments provide incredible levels of value with enough guests, making Les Balcons de Val Thorens massively popular with families and larger groups.
