Visitor Reviews of Val Thorens

Alex from Belgium writes:

We went there with Skikot, a famous travel brand in Belgium who were really good. We had a small (perhaps too small) room for 4 pers. at the foot of the slopes and the ski lift. We all had a wonderful time in the sunshine; nice for the après-ski at the Folie douce! The resort was also good for the nightlife with a large amount of bars, restaurants,... The ski area is available to any ski level, from the beginners to the pros. It's really good if you go there with friends who's got different skiing levels. I recommend it to everyone.
