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 The Three Valleys

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.

Perfectly formed apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for more from this apartment. Perfect for a couple, could easily fit one more in but 4 adults, as others have said, might be a bit cramped! Great location, right in the middle of things in VT, and great value for money.

Very well equipped for cooking big meals - proper oven and hob, nice big fridge, loads of plates, pans, cutlery, knives etc. Shower was super and hot too.

Nice touch with the TV - the DVD collection kept us entertained for a quieter night in, but only 2 mins walk to the restaurants and bars.

As with many places in central VT, there are a few people coming and going (merrily) in the wee hours which might disturb some light sleepers but nothing out of the ordinary.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Not really suitable for more than 2 people due to hot water situation. Only enough for 2 showers when you return from a days skiing.

No grater - we bought one and left it in apartment

Broken scissors

No bread board/chopping board

No bread knife

These were the things that we missed.

You do rely on people before leaving it clean and tidy before you. (Hoover could do with updating)

But saying all this:

The apartment was very quiet, great location to slopes, lift and town centre.

Owners great communication - no issues

Owner's Response: We have had many groups of 4 this season and there has been no issue with hot water. We can only assume very lengthy showers were taken. We are just back from a week in our apartment and there was no issues with the lack of hot water! Our vacuum is a Dyson and although not the latest model is fully functional. We do stock up on items at the end of each season and this year has included scissors, bread knife and 3 new chopping boards however, we do rely on guests not breaking or removing these items when they stay.

Great Location- skiing right on the doorstep!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week skiing in Val Thorens and couldn't have asked for a better location - skiing, shops, bus stop etc. all within a few steps! It was nice coming back to this cosy apartment after a tiring day on the slopes. The apartment was well kitted out with the added bonus of a dishwasher. Everything you could ask for from a self-catered ski apartment at a great price!

Warm well-equipped well-placed

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, best cooking facilities we've found in a ski resort flat (unless you want to microwave everything). Very comfortable and roomy for a couple, would need good organizational skills for more. Close to the centre of VT and a very short stagger from the Cairn lift at the end of a hard day on the hill.

Little gem

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in perfect location . Couldn't fault our holiday here. Small as described but fantastic value for money. Family of 4 comfortably stayed here with ski out and virtually ski in. Quiet location but 2 min walk to all shops and take aways. The apartment has everything you need and is quick to clean at end of stay. Highly recommend and communication with owners is first class. Would definitely use again.

Clearly a winner......

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in val thorens staying in the above apartment ..from the outset the communication with Phil/Helen and information received about the apt /resort were excellent..

The apt is spacious compared to some we have stayed in and is more than adequately stocked with items you will require ..

If like us you like to be close to the lifts this is for you as the cairn gondola is only a few yards down the road ..

It is a very quiet apt with lovely views onto the mountains which we spent admiring on many occasions ..

The shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance, a very nice small resort ..

We would have no hesitation in booking this apt again and will defenetly be returning ..

Thanks Terry /lil (Chesterfield uk)
