2 BEDROOM APARTMENT

La Thuille Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, sunny, split-level 2-bedroom apartment for 4-6 or budget studio for 2

We have two apartments in the best and sunniest area of La Thuile, a 2-minute ski/skate or 4 minute walk to chairlifts and cable car: our first-floor split-level apartment has a large living area and luxurious fitted kitchen, south-facing balcony looking onto the ski area (or the condo swimming pool in summer) and the Rutor glacier, upstairs two bedrooms, one double and the other with twin or double bed arrangement, full bathroom and separate WC. Beautiful all-new bathroom, WC and new bedroom furniture installed December 2012!

The second unit is a ground floor studio, comprising one large room with twin beds (can be pushed together), living and cooking area and bathroom, which can be rented separately or in conjunction with the other unit for larger families or groups of friends holidaying together.

Ski from door to chairlifts and cable cars which take you up to 2600 metres and over 150 km of pistes. In a condo in newer part of village, everything easily reached on foot. Self catering but nearby restaurants, pizzerias etc. Wonderful wildflowers, walks, hiking, biking in summer (2 chairlifts open), easy trek to spectacular waterfalls, see marmots, pick mushrooms and blueberries; from Courmayeur take cable car up Mont Blanc to ski the Mer de Glace glacier from there or just visit Chamonix on French side. Also summer tennis, archery, horse-riding and mountain bike hire. Golf and ice skating in Courmayeur. Canoeing in village, rafting from Pré St Didier.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS! 2013-14 calendar not yet published, but there will be events to celebrate start of ski season, New Year celebrations and fireworks, chocolate feasts, charity ski events, and once the snow melts, Bataille des Chèvres, a 'new' tradition with goats replacing cows which joust for supremacy... a great local event with lots of good food and drink on offer too!

CONSIDER SUMMER STAYS!

La Thuile is seriously worth a summer stay:

JUNE is when the wildflowers are at their best. Days are sunny and fresh, inviting long walks - see marmot cubs emerging from their burrows, other wildlife (maybe glimpse the rare and ultra-protected eagles nesting on the crags of the canyon between La Thuile and Pre St Didier). The waterfalls are abundant with meltwater and around mid-June the Petit St Bernard Pass is opened again for the summer, so you can drive into France for some more exploring.

Trout fishing is also rewarding (permit required - buy locally)

JULY AND AUGUST are traditional holiday months for children and hikers. The mountain huts offering meals as well as a place to sleep are open, so you can do longer treks up to the Rutor glacier or in the Gran Paradiso National Park. Mountain biking, rafting, pony trekking etc are also in full swing. Also pick fabulous porcini mushrooms, blueberries and raspberries.

And for ski fanatics, of course you can ski the Mer de Glace on Mont Blanc all summer (get a guide though!) or just take the cable car from Courmayeur as far as you want to go, even down to Chamonix on the French side, and back again.

STOP PRESS: July 12 and 13 2014 will see the ENDURO WORLD SERIES biking competition based in La Thuile. Whether spectator or competitor, it promises to be a great week!! Find more info on the dedicated website!

About Lorraine Beccaria

I am British and my husband is Italian. We and our two adult children love this apartment and use it for skiing and for active summer holidays too, but are glad to be able to share it with like-minded people, who will treat it with the care we do. We keep the apartment nice and redecorate or add new features on a yearly basis

Why Lorraine Beccaria chose La Thuille

We love the situation - sunny and with great views. The fact the block is almost exclusively owner-occupied means over the years we have made a lot of friends here - and each chooses their own holiday time, so the pool is never crowded and in ski season 'full houses' are pretty much limited to Christmas and New Year and Carnival weekend.

What makes this apartment unique

Our flat is just so convenient for the slopes, for shopping and for its unique views - there is no part of the village which is better situated!

Very good stay

Flat very functionnel, very well equipped and great well located. We'll go for the third time with a great pleasure. Besides, La Thuile is splendid with a significant domain and very pleasant. A very good stay!

Owner's Response: I am glad the flat is so popular! Sometimes I feel bad when people ask for a second ski week in the same season, maybe during half term or other holidays, and these weeks have been booked for 9 months or so! It is important to book early for these dates, or well worth looking into less busy but equally good skiing times!

No queues in La Thuile!

  • 4 of 5
We flew to Milan, a fairly easy and stress-free 2 1/2 hour drive - mostly dual carriageway. Upon our arrival in La Thuile, the apartments were simple to find with a huge sign on the roof, and parking right outside.
An ideal apartment for 4 people, it was very cosy and with a constant supply of hot water. Lovely views and particularly good cooking facilities.The decor is rather 70s, but putting scrabble tiles on the tablecloth squares was particularly satisfying ! The bathroom is apparently about to be updated,this will be much appreciated as the current bath with a step halfway took us by surprise on a number of occasions!
A couple of suggestions for improvements : it took ages to brew a decent quantity of coffee for us all at breakfast using the little pots provided,a large caffetiere(or similar) would be really useful.We also found the double bed really hard,a comfy mattress and some softer pillows would make a huge difference.However, these are small niggles and we had a great holiday.
The skiing was excellent - varied and interesting. We had about a foot of snow on night two and day three, which was an unexpected bonus, and made for some fabulous skiing the following days ! We tended to ski La Rosiere in the mornings and La Thuile in the afternoons. There are plenty of every grade of run, from easy blues, through easy and harder reds, right up to one or two very challenging blacks. The return to town is fairly hard, especially in slushy end of day snow, and beginners may be well advised to get back down on the gondola. I think that the longest we queued for any lift all week was about 45 seconds, and we were frequently the only people on some runs ! Ski rental is good from Berthod Sport, and if you rent from them, you get free use of the locker facilitles at the gondola station, saving you carrying them up there every morning ! The weather and visibility can change incredibly quickly up top, so always take too many clothes, and a piste map !
As it was pretty much the end of the skiing season quite a few restaurants had already closed,but we had many excellent meals, in particular at the Coppapan(just beyond the gondola station) and Pepita Caffe, perched above the BP garage ! Bars were a bit limited, but the gin and tonics were always on the generous side.
All in all a very relaxing,peaceful holiday,thanks to Lorraine for her very efficient service and a property in an excellent location

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you all had a good time, and once again, proof that skiing in La Thuile is good even in April - either you get some late fresh snow or you have brilliant sunshine on longer, warmer days than earlier in the season - or if you are lucky, you get plenty of both!
Yes, I confirm the bathroom will be updated this summer, though we will probably retain the 'half-bath' feature: nearly all adults shower rather than bath, and families with small children find sitting them on the higher 'step' is easier on the parents' backs and makes for less screaming if children are not mad about water!
Thanks for your comments on the restaurants. As we tend to cook at home most of the time, it is good to get plenty of updates as standards change over time. Will definitely try Pepita next time, as well as Coppapan, which we already frequent on occasion.
We do appreciate your other suggestions, though I think several of them may be generated by different living-cooking habits between Brits and Italians. You had said you would have appreciated an electric kettle rather than one to put on the hob, and we may add this for next season, but concerning the coffee, the assortment of Italian Moka machines make 3 or 6 coffees EACH.... I know we Brits all drink mugs rather than shots, so the form is: make a Moka for 3 or 6, share between mugs and then add hot water or hot milk (or water-then-milk) according to your preferences, to fill the mug. If you pour yourselves mugs of coffee from the Moka, you may be very jittery on the pistes and at night too!!
Concerning the bedding, again individual preferences count for so much. We replaced the old double bed with new 'orthopaedic' wooden struts and new mattresses just 2 years ago and find them great (my husband has issues with soft mattresses which 'give' in strange places), and there are about 10 pillows so Italians use 1 each and Brits can use 2 each as per custom, each choosing between the hard-ish and the soft. On the other hand, the mattresses in the bunk bedroom will be changed this summer, and perhaps even all the furniture in that bedroom (we are wondering whether people would prefer a double divan bed to bunks, or whether those with children prefer two very separate beds......). Glad you really enjoyed your skiing and you said the resort was every bit as good as Cervinia, which you already knew. Hope to see you again!

Becoming a little dated-but suitable.

  • 4 of 5
THE APARTMENT
The apartment was ok, if becoming a little dated, the recently refurbished kitchen being the exeption and much appreciated. Perfectly adequate and comfortable, I would say ideal for 4 persons but 6 would be feasable using the lounge sofa beds. There were just the 2 of us father and Son 54 and 30yrs so we had plenty of space. We cooked every night exept our last and did cooked breakfasts each morning, kitchen pots and pans sufficient but perhaps some due for replacement.
We found the apartment to be generally clean, sadly though previous occupants had left a number of areas below the standard I would expect. It took the edge off our exitement at the beggining of the holiday to have to clean out the bathroom and the oven and much of the cutlery, but being ex military got on with it, once done no further cleanliness issues, this is a rare occurance we were told.
The heating was excellent, often sleeping with the windows open (and -17degrees outside), hot water always available.
The location is superb for skiing, we found that you could walk a short way up the road and join the piste to ski down to the Gondola, at the end of the day you could almost ski up to the block.
During our stay the other apartments in the block were almost all empty for most of the week so it was very quiet.
THE RESORT
We found La Thuile to be as we had researched, a quiet resort with limited nightlife but with adequate facilities.
There are shops available for self catering, within the planibel there is a supermarket slightly higher prices than the norm but not expensive by resort standards, there is also a butcher in the same complex along with other shops and a takeaway.
In the village about 10-15 mins walk are further shops and a pharmacy, and also a number of cafes and restraunts.
Being at the head of a valley it remains quiet and there is little to do at night, this was however our main reason to stay here so no suprise.

THE SKI AREA
The ski area was excellent, superb snow(though this was the best year for snow in the alps for over 25 years).
Piste maintenance was excellent also and the quantity and variety of pistes is very good. Many off the reds however are not red steepness, except in a few short pitches, many pistes being at the easy end of the grading. The exception to this being the blacks down the front back to the village (serious steepness in places).
The trip to France over the pass is fun.
We will no doubt be returning in the future.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good time and yes, the snow was excellent this year, but so it has been in La Thuile every single year for the past 10 years at least - I would say this year we were short on the abundant late snow (early April) that we have got used to - but in any case, people have had fabulous sunshine nearly every week, are still finding good snow on the higher runs and can ski all the way down if they don't mind it being soft at the very bottom. And today as I write (April 11) it is snowing hard, so skiing until closure on April 25 will be good again!
Concerning the apartment, we are proud of the standards we keep, as it is our own ski holiday apartment too, and we renovate constantly but gradually: kitchen, new, proper mattresses on the downstairs sofas, and new soft coverings all within the last couple of years. This summer we will replace mattresses on the bunk bed and hope to fully renovate the bathroom, do repainting as always.... so 2012-13 visitors will have an even better experience.
Concerning kitchen equipment, there is a huge selection of large and medium pasta/vegetable pots, a series of new frying pans of all sizes, a pressure cooker, a large selection of cake and baking tins, 3 or 4 coffee makers, sufficient crockery for 10-12 people, lots of microwave dishes etc etc so yes, some pans are newer than others, but there can be no other place with such a great selection - a stark contrast to Planibel rental apartments with exactly 4 sets of crockery/cutlery, 2 or 3 saucepans and only 2 cooking rings.....
Finally, I am extremely surprised you had even the slightest reserve on the level of cleanliness - we take a deposit from visitors which is refunded on departure after inspection. I may this once not have checked all the cutlery, (and the oven is one of the places I always check too!) but all rooms are checked thoroughly and where necessary cleaned again by me personally, windows polished etc. I also keep notes for future reference on individual occupants and for those preceding you I actually recorded 'nice people, left v.clean, want to come again'.... You are welcome to come and check out our annual enhancements at the start of next season and see how you like it! Thanks for your comments anyway, they show people do care and our efforts will be noticed.

"Team Clique" Ski Trip 2012

  • 4 of 5
Well what a great little resort with a great ski area! The apartment is in a fab location just a few minutes ski or herringbone from the chairlifts or 1 min further walk to the gondola. Apartment facilities are good & kitchen facilities excellent. We are 2 couples in our 40's who like to chill out & part self cater & part dine out & we found all we needed in the apartment & in the village. The apartment was cosy & warm & clean & tidy with a balcony. The old village is pretty & we found a couple of nice friendly bars & restaurants. The mountain restaurants are also of a good standard with very reasonable prices. If apres ski nightlife is your priority (crowded pistes & lift queues that go with it!!!) this is NOT for you!!! For us it's all about great skiing, good food & wine & friendly people........& it's perfect!!!! We have already discussed booking again next year...... so thanks Lorraine.... see you in 2013!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us - you were happy with the abundant snow, and in January I know some days were really quiet on the pistes, so you felt you had them almost to yourselves! That said, with over 130 km of pistes to choose from, even at New Year or February Carnival, you won't find yourself queueing, nor pistes crowded, unless you choose to relentlessly repeat blacks 2 & 3 down into the village - we advise staying up and enjoying the sunshine of the pistes at higher altitudes! I look forward to seeing you again next year - I think you said you will go for January again? Just check the availability chart!

Very enjoyable week of skiing!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 and spent a wonderful week over New Year in La Thuile.
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We even baked a cake in the oven! The unlimited hot water was much appreciated by us all after a day on the slopes. The heating works extremely well so if you stay over the winter make sure you pack some T shirts!
La Thuile is a lovely spot and we have skied there several times. The apartment is extremely well positioned for the lifts and for restaurants, shops, bars and ski hire etc. The children enjoyed playing on the slopes outside the apartment in the evening where they were able to sledge or build snowmen/ have snowball fights! If you stay over New Year you have a perfect viewpoint of the amazing village fireworks from the balcony and there is plenty of space on the balcony to store skis and poles.
We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return ourselves.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm glad you all had a good time and yes, we think our apartment is in the best location in the whole resort for access to everything but with the extra space coming from the pool and garden (summer) and snow-covered slopes for sledging or snowman-building (in winter, with no buildings obscuring the view to the lifts area and up to the Ruitor glacier. We would be happy to have you again - you left the apartment just as clean as you found it - thank you!

Wonderful walking and views

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 12 nights in August 2011. The weather was fantastic so we enjoyed many walks from La Thuile and the surrounding area. An hour's drive gets you over to Bourg St Maurice for a look at the other side of the mountain. (Food and diesel is much cheaper there)
The Cable Car up towards Mont Blanc from La Palud is v expensive, busy and not worth it. There are much better views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains from places like Tete D'Arpy.
The village itself is split in two halves - a modern bit (Hotel Planibel) which seem full of large conferences but does provide a take away, supermarket and gelateria - and an older bit which had the advantage of a chocolate festival whilst we were there.
This area isn't cheap with every day staples at least twice the price of similar UK shops and probably 3 times the price of a Tesco. Fresh Milk at €1.8 per litre for example.
Our experience in the restaurants was mixed. Food was generally good but not fantastic. A couple of disappointments (Fondues served individually with mean portions at a high price) and service that was not always smiling (sometimes gave the impression that we were stopping them relaxing) meant that overall we felt natives were not particularly friendly. What a contrast with our last night near Turin (Borgaro - Pizzeria Au Village) - a fantastic welcome and exquisite food.
The flat is compact with a lovely view of the glacier. It has all you need for self catering and endless hotwater. The swimming pool is bigger than we thought from the pictures - we used it most nights - but is only open till 7pm and sometimes the cover was on when we got back at 6:30. It was never crowded. Wifi is not really an option here. To get any signal you have to go up to the top floor and whilst the €5 annual fee for the La Thuile Hotspot (slightly strange the wifi account isn't provided by the flat) is next to nothing the speed is painfully slow (remember dial up?). I couldn't get data on the phone either.
This is a block of flats with many owners and whilst noise is not a huge problem, with the windows open in the warm weather you could hear conversations on the neighbouring balconies and just occasionally the smoke drifted in too. Perhaps for those who get up a little earlier this wouldn't be noticed.
Parking is easy and it is only a few minutes stroll to the shops.
Overall a pleasant place to stay but costly for those not used to Italian prices.

Owner's Response: I am glad your family had a good time - I think the extension of your original booking from one week to 12 days says it all! I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the Mont Blanc trip - I agree it is expensive, but most people (myself included) find the experience of gliding above the Mer de Glace glacier and watching skiers and climbers below is really unique, and the feeling of being at the top of the Aiguilles du Midi amazing. Those who ski down with a guide also highly recommend it at least as a 'do it once' thing.
Concerning the price of food: this is an issue in all 'seasonal' places; they have to pay a year's expenses on a ski season of 5 months and a summer season of 2 months, so yes, many Italians go up with a carload of supermarket shopping or shop in Aosta before going on up the valley. But the price of milk in Italy is just one of those things that is far higher everywhere than in the UK - standard price for high quality milk in any supermarket is 1.30-1.50, organic up to 1.60/litre. Best advice is 'go local': buy fontina cheese at the producers' chalet at little over 10 euros/kg, fantastic quality butter and other cheeses at good prices. And though fruit at Planibel (seasonal) is expensive, the weekly market has prices that I think are well below UK. Also, bear in mind that the pound has lost significant value from the 'good old days' of nearly 1.50 euros to the pound, now around 1.12..... so without Italian prices increasing at all, they would still seem much higher to you in pound terms.
Sorry about the pool closing early for your tastes - but again in the mountains the pool is in the shade long before 7 and it is not in the Italian mindset to swim when not immersed in boiling sunshine. It is large and, as you say, uncrowded, and the grass surround makes it great for relaxing while children play in the sandpit, swim or sunbathe. Hope to see you again - try the winter for skiing or early summer for the best wild flowers and animal-spotting!

La Thuile, at an altitude of 1400 metres, is the last village on the Italian side of the Petit Saint Bernard Pass into France and just 15 minutes from the Mont Blanc tunnel. Further down the valley lies Pre' St. Didier, with a spectacular waterfall and hot water springs famous since Roman times, now home to a luxury spa. In winter the road is closed about l km above La Thuile; numerous ski routes cross into France. La Thuile has several cross-country skiing tracks as well as over 150 km of alpine skiing with pistes to challenge experts and encourage beginners. Lots of free entertainment for children (and adults!) in main skiing season and in July/August. Summer trekking, mountain bikes, horseriding, archery, swimming. Courmayeur just 15 mins away (but who wants to swap the peace of La Thuile for the traffic of Courmayeur?). Shops sell local Fontina cheese as well as lesser-known specialities such as 'mocetta' cured meat, lard with chestnuts and Alpine herb liqueurs such as Genepy.

Other Activities: Heliski, ping pong, billiards, gym, sauna, Turkish baths, quad hire (summer), new spa Pre St Didier (water 37°C open all year)Ice rink Courmayeur

Golf: Courmayeur golf club 15 minutes away

Ski: NOVELTY 2011-12 SNOWKITE @ Petit St.Bernard pass. Ski, snowboard, telemark classes Italian and English at all levels. Beginners start on nursery slopes in the village: two 'moving carpets’ and a small ski-lift before graduating to blue, red and black runs 'up the mountain'. The longest piste is red n. 7, which is 11 km (though with tempting bars and restaurants to slow your progress), the most challenging black runs 25 (from 'Belvedere' panoramic site) and 2 and 3, running down into the village. There are a boarder cross area and a special off-piste area on the French side, as well as new and bigger chairlifts in several areas on the Italian side. Cross-country ski lessons, four well-kept tracks starting in the village. Check out info, prices on lathuile.net website. Heliski on the Rutor glacier. Year-round skiing on Mont Blanc - drive to Courmayeur (10 mins) and book thrilling but not too challenging ski down the 'Mer de Glace' (Alpine ski guide required) even in high summer

Clothing washed by hand can be hung over extendable washing lines over bath, dries quickly overnight. For longer stays, consider using local cleaners (convenient but pricey!)
Bedrooms:
  • 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6
  • Bedroom double - 1 queen
    Bedroom for two/double - 2 twin/ single , Can be made up as double bed
  • Double room has double bed, bedside tables, large wardrobe (hangers and shelves). Second bedroom has two single beds which can be put together to make a second double bed; newly furnished and new mattresses autumn 2012. The divans in the downstairs living room can accommodate two more adults or children (extra charge) but as there are no downstairs wardrobes, it is recommended they use sleeping bags and keep their luggage in upstairs wardrobes or under sofas. Additional high storage cupboards on upstairs landing. In summary, the accommodation is spacious for 4 people. If 6 wish to book , they must remember they are sharing one bathroom (separate WC) and will need to be tidy to avoid friction! Duvets for 4, blankets, pillows supplied. Duvet covers (sleeping bags for 5th-6th occupants), pillowcases and towels can be reserved at 15 euros per person/week or bring own. Parents' responsibility to see all children are 'dry' and do not soil mattresses
