Val Thorens, France
Pashmina Le Refuge
  • Ski in/ski out mountain luxury in Europe's highest resort

  • Experience a night in the unique rooftop IglooPod or dinner in a yurt

  • High altitude resort, part of the extensive Three Valleys ski area

  • Excellent accommodation options for families needing more space

Hotel Pashmina has one of the best locations in Val Thorens, with guests having instant access to the entire Val Thorens domain and the rest of the Three Valleys beyond. It also holds a Michelin star for the Les Explorateurs restaurant. Contemporary and refined, chic yet cozy, the hotel is the perfect mountain hideaway and is conveniently located next to a brand new blue slope which makes it accessible for all standards of skiers.

The rooms and suites are elegant and comfortable, and all have views over the surrounding valley and peaks. The suites are ideal for families and range in size from one to three bedrooms, whilst the chalet apartments are perfect for the more independent skier. Or, for a night to remember, book the igloo pod on the roof and sleep under the stars.

Pashmina takes all things culinary very seriously, with quality produce and authentic local dishes under the expert eye of award winning chef Romuald Fassenet, in the two restaurants Le Base Camp and the Michelin-starred Les Explorateurs. Every Wednesday, guests can go by snowmobile up the mountain to Chalet de la Marine - the highest in Val Thorens for an evening of traditional gourmet dining - tartiflette, fondue, pot-au-feu and many other regional dishes.

The hotel has a large Spa, with treatment rooms using L'Occitane products, steam room and sauna, with an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi.

The highest ski resort in Europe at 2,300m, Val Thorens forms part of the Trois Vallées with over 600 km of piste - the largest linked ski area in the world. Surrounded by six glaciers, the resort is situated in a vast natural cirque, with guaranteed snow cover from November to May and a ski area offering something for every ability of skier.
