Who says size doesn’t matter (he says with a chuckle)?

The Three Valleys is by far the largest ski area in the world. It’s a fact. The Three Valleys ski area has an untouchable 660kms of pistes at the last count. That is almost 50% larger than its closest rival which is incidentally the very pretty, but not quite as challenging, Stella Ronda ski area in Italy with 480kms of pistes. In a very close 3rd place is the amazing Paradiski with 460 kms of pistes, my favourite, which was created when les Arcs and La Plagne linked themselves together with a rather impressive cable car called the Vanoise Express.  

Attractive bustling resorts with lots of après ski.

The Three Valleys ski area; no surprise, it consists of 3 valleys as listed below.

Val Thorens & Les Menuires

Val Thorens is renowned for being not only the highest resort in The Three Valleys, but supposedly the highest resort town in Europe at 2300m, now that’s high! It has a vibrant night life and expect it to be full of university ski trips in early December and late April.

Les Menuires sits nicely at 1850m and our lovely chalets in Reberty Village are located at 2000m and just a short distance above Les Menuires. It's the best place to avoid the crowds and sometimes chaotic Val T.


Courchevel is the most expensive resort in The Three Valleys and it has several satellite villages. The more famous resort town named Courchevel sits at 1850m and you can expect some of the most expensive properties in the Alps to be here, along with shops, bars and restaurants with matching prices. Lower down you can find Courchevel 1650 and 1550 and towards the next valley is the very pretty La Praz and the better value end resort of La Tania.  


Meribel is in the heart of The Three Valleys ski area and surprisingly sits at only 1450m and this hugely popular British led resort (it was first created by a British major in 1958 I believe) is a big favourite. It is now a sprawling town where buses will take you to long queues waiting to ski, especially at peak weeks. But hey, there’s always a bar nearby!

Transit times to the main ski airports

Expect our minibuses to take you safely to The Three Valleys and Reberty Village in 2.5 hours from Lyon, Grenoble or even Geneva and just less than two hours from Chambery on a good day.

Our Chalets in The Three Valleys

Our chalets are located in Reberty Village, just a short drive or ski from Les Menuires below and Val Thorens up the valley a little. Chalet Flocons des Neige sleeps up to 16 guests in 6 en-suite, has a log fire and a hot tub. Chalets Cleopatra and Antony each sleep up to 8 guests in 4 rooms each. The two small chalets have an inter-connecting door allowing a much larger group to book for up to 16 guests in 8 en-suite rooms. All of our chalets include catering on 6 days of a 7 night stay and also include airport transfers with our very own licenced fleet of drivers and vehicles as advertised.
