About Philip and Helen Wright

We are a family of 3 who love to snowboard and visit our apartment in Val Thorens as often as we can.

Philip and Helen Wright purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Philip and Helen Wright chose Val Thorens

We bought this property as it has a home from home feel about it. It has lovely views of the mountains and the bedroom also faces the mountains, so it is nice and quiet at night.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

For our first experience of VT, we could not have wished for a better one. The apartment was cosy, but spacious enough for 4 adults, and was extremely well equipped. Philip and Helen were a pleasure to organise the accommodation through, and were full of good advice.

I would recommend to all Goitschel 2 for ski hire; book P1 for parking; food from the deli in the Gallerie; and drinks and music at Saloon or the Viking Bar.

Contrary to many reports of noise at other Residences, Cimes de Caron was wonderfully peaceful in the evenings, but still within shooting distance of the main bars and restaurants. It is genuine ski-in, ski-out, but with the option of catching the Cairn gondola to the station about 50 yards from the apartment for those with weary legs!

All in all, a great resort with excellent skiing, topped off by a fantastic apartment suitable for all.

Many thanks to Philip and Helen.

We'll be back.......

Jez, Eleanor, Ed and Fin.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that Jez and his party had such a good time in VT, this is only our first year of renting out our apartment and are we really happy to get such good feedback. We use this apartment ourselves, so we really care about providing a nice apartment that people will enjoy. Helen and Phil.

The best experience ever

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week in VT in January, and thanks largely to this wonderful apartment.

We previously rented self-catering residences, and judging on the experience brought quite a lot of stuff for cleaning, but that wasn't necessary as the flat if fully packed with everything you might need. It feels extremely homely, also because the holiday makers leave smth after them and try to keep the supplies topped up. I was really nice to arrive in the evening after all day trip and find camomile tea)

The view is perfect (we literarily watched downhill from our window) as well as the location. There are croissants in the mornings just across the road and a big sports center with a pool and saunas just one minute walk. All the lifts are close, and there is a short cut on the way back from the piste if you find it (you can go down just behind SkiSet IV across the road)

The only thing is that there were two of us which was perfect. I think three is a maximum, four might feel too crowdy (esp because water in the boiler runs out quite quickly, that's why a closely situated pool is quite handy)

Well equipped, spacious and modern.

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great stay in Helen's apartment. It was exactly how it was described, It was very Spacious for two people and there was a separate room with bunk beds that we used as a walk in wardrobe! There was a good amount of storage and equipment to cook with. Having an oven was a luxury as you usually don't in most apartments. you could ski out from the apartment and practically ski back in, just a few meters walk. All amenities were close by, but saying that you don't have to walk that far to get anywhere in Val Thoren as it's quite compact.

Would definitely come back to stay again.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

3 of us stayed in the apartment for a week at the end of January 2013. The apartment was ideal for what we needed, although on the small side it had much better facilities than most apartments we'd looked at, and for a much better price! It seems to be one of the only apartments in VT that has an actual oven rather than microwave, which is a bonus when you're cooking 3 pizzas, and the dishwasher was a luxury! Massive fridge, loads of cutlery, plates, pots and pans, etc, everything you could need and more. Shower is also hot and powerful, just what you need after a day on the slopes. View from balcony is great overlooking the slopes and you're able to ski right out of the back door of the building. Skiing back is almost as easy, only having to take skis off to cross the road. Only a couple of minutes walk to bus station for transfers and a few minutes walk to main stretch of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and ski hire shops. Easily enough space for 3 people in apartment. Overall would recommend the apartment very highly, we had an amazing week in VT which was made better by having a great apartment!

Cosy with a great kitchen...

  • 5 of 5

Val Thorens has some of the best snow in the Alps, so finding a good apartment at the right price isn't easy. Having done a season here, I've seen a lot of apartments around town. For the price, this really is a great one.

It's so cosy and really feels like a home away from home. It is also in a great location, close enough to everything without being too close that you're woken up in the middle of the night by drunken teens outside your window.

And then there's the kitchen… The kitchen really makes such a difference. Most apartments here in Val Thorens just have two hotplates and a microwave. This pad has a full sized fridge and freezer, a proper four plate hob, a proper oven and a dishwasher. So, you can really make good use of all the tasty produce available in town.

And sitting on the balcony with a glass of rosé while watching the sun set over the mountains is rather nice too.

As the Governor of California once said… I'll be back.
