Fodor's Expert Review Atlapura

Rue du Soleil, Val Thorens, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, 73440, France

You can wave to skiers on the lifts that whiz past your sharply angled window at the Altapura, a ski-in, ski-out property on the edge of Val Thorens. Even the standard rooms feel like suites, with sleekly furnished sitting areas and bathrooms with separate steam showers and deep soaking tubs. Amenities include flat-screen TVs and free movies in all languages. A spiral stone staircase takes you downstairs to three restaurants, including the intimate La Laiterie, which specializes in fondue (if you're with a group, try all five). Downstairs is a soothing spa, designed to look like a birch forest.

PROS

  • easy access to the slopes
  • attentive staff
  • great choice of restaurants
