About This Chalet

Description

Sophistication and cosiness go hand in hand at the Chalet Caribou. A Ski Beat stay here means high altitude, high quality and high standards, all topped off with bucketloads of charm. Striking the perfect balance between contemporary and old world, the home from home comes complete with slick wooden floors, plush furniture and modern décor, all housed within traditional stone and wood exteriors.

Surrounded by the epic mountain scenery of Val Thorens, the chalet style apartment accommodates up to eight guests in four cosy and beautifully furnished bedrooms. The chalet’s lounge is a real beauty too, with sleek leather sofas to sink into after a day on the slopes and big windows from where you can take in your gloriously snowy surrounds. Imagine watching the snowflakes fall softly outside, as you add another log to the open hearth fire, all the while enjoying a cup of tea and a slice (or two!) of homemade cake. Sheer bliss!

This chalet style apartment is ideal and works really well when a family or group take over the apartment due to its shared facilities and cosy communal areas, although we are happy to sell on an individual room basis if requested.

As guests of the apartment style Chalet Caribou, you will also have access to the superb facilities within the Chalet des Neiges Residence. This means you can indulge in some post-slope relaxation in the complex’s private indoor heated swimming pool or soothe those weary muscles in the sauna. The Chalet des Neiges Residence also features a ski hire shop – talk about convenience!

Chalet Caribou cannot take infants.

Save all your energy for the pistes, because everything else in the multi-award winning resort of Val Thorens is a breeze. The 2,300 metre high resort is a true all-rounder. Its scenery is spectacular. Its après ski, fantastic, and it’s skiing convenience is hard to beat. Nowhere in Val Thorens is far from anything, and Chalet Caribou is no exception.
