I have recently returned from a weeks snowboarding in Val Thorens and just had to write how great The Village Montana is. I booked the apartment, ski passes and car parking directly with the hotel via their website. This was very easy to do, although the confirmation is in french - thankfully my girlfriend can read french so we were ok. Everything was ready for us to pick up on arrival on Saturday and we were on the slopes by 12am and virtually alone as its change over day. We booked the 4 person apartment for our group of three. This comprised of 2 bedrooms with 2 comfortable single beds in each. This was ideal for us. Each apartment is well equiped with electric hob, very small plug in oven, dishwasher and coffee machine. There is no kettle so if you want tea take your own and also there are no mugs only very small cappucino style cups. You are provided with a cleaning pack which includes cleaning cloths and dishwasher tablets which was great, should you need anything else the nearest supermarket is only 10 mins walk away. The apartment offered us plenty of room with its own balcony overlooking the piste and living room with sofa bed. The cable tv was useless, unless you speak French, 2 English channels - Eurosport and CNN, so take entertainment. Our only other complaint was that the apartment was really hot during the night. There are board and ski lockers in the basement and it takes less than 1 minute to get to the nearest ski lift. Val Thorens itself is fairly quite for apres ski with limited bars/disco so dont go there looking for a wild time but we were too tired most nights to get up to much. There are some great restaurants especially the italian next to the Village Montana. We spent on average 20 euros a night for evening meal + a few drinks - fairly reasonable.
Luckily we picked the highest resort in Europe so we were fortunate to have snow - unlike most of Europe. There are lots of different types of runs so suitable for all types of skiers / snowboarders. All in all a great hotel and brilliant resort, will are defiantly returning to Val Thorens next season.
