Val Thorens, France
  • Maximize your time and enjoyment…slap bang in the heart of Europe's highest Alpine resort and located at the base of the slopes, guests will benefit from fantastic ski-in and ski-out access

  • As soon as you step inside from the cold you’ll be delighted by the hotel’s playful and stylish take on modern luxury…blending urban chic with splashes of vibrant color and Scandi minimalism with soft furnishings

  • The uber cool décor continues throughout the spacious rooms, with plenty of storage space for all your gear whilst the duplex suites are ideal for families…and throw open your curtains to reveal stunning mountain views!

  • Seek refuge with a hot chocolate beside the roaring fire in the lounge or enjoy a steaming mulled wine out on the sunny south-facing terrace, before deciding whether it’s a gloriously cheesy fondue, spicy sushi rolls or gourmet French cuisine for dinner

The Altapura stands out in the Val Thorens landscape with its strikingly bold and Nordic architecture. Built and run by the Sibuet family, who have much experience in running ski hotels in the Alps, the Altapura offers modern five star luxury and efficient, personal service, at the top of the world's largest ski area. Based at the foot of the slopes, it has a perfect ski in/ski out location, and is only 400m away from the center of Val Thorens.

The hotel calls itself a "ski palace", and it certainly is glamorous. Birch walls and furniture, brightly colored fabrics, stone bathrooms and a Mac Mini in every room, every tiny detail is stylish. The choice of rooms range from a cozy double to a family suite, all with views of the mountains, out of oversized windows.

Guests have a excellent restaurant choice. From the 2.Mille.3 terrace and its extensive lunch menu, or international cuisine in the evening, or from brasserie dining at Casa Alta serving dishes with a flavor of Italy, to traditional and more unusual fondues at La Laiterie, there's every reason to stay here.

The hotel has its own ski shop, with access via the boot room to the slopes. You can pre-book your skis when you book your room, and take advantage of the made to measure service when you arrive. The boutique here has a very good range of all major brands, should you decide you need a totally new outfit whilst you're there. The Altapura's Spa and wellness facilities are extensive, with an indoor and outdoor pool, steam room,sauna, ice chamber and a good range of treatments.
