I dont know what ou think, but to me, December is one of the best month of the year ! I love Christmas Time so much! It’s a perfect period to share with friends and family. It is also a perfect moment to get rest, to relax, eat too much candy, drink hot chocolate and cosy ! This year will be different : we are not staying home, we decided to spend the Xmas Holiday in the French Alps. A friend of mine advised us to go Val Thorens, one the highest Ski resorts in France, and voted best ski resorts of the world many times !
So for our first time in Val Thorens, we decided to book 4 days in a four star hotel named « Le Hameau du Kashmir »… It’s easier to write than to pronounce, believe me ! It has a fantastic location : at the entrance of the resort, and, at the foot of the ski slopes ! Can you imagine ? Zero efforts, just get your ski pants on after Breakfast (even if they make you look fater…), strap on your skis and you’re ready to go downhill and enjoy the fresh snow.
For instance, and also to make my sister (who is not coming) jealous, this Hotel in Val Thorens looks amazing ! The rooms are very cosy and confortable. The Hotel has a swimming pool and a sauna, perfect for a relaxing moment after a hard day skiing and probably falling a lot.
A good point for my husband who loves having a nice glass of wine (or two) before dinner : Val Thorens has the reputation to be a very dynamic ski resort with like 3 night clubs over 25 bars ! I am not sure we will have time to try them all in a 4 days stay, but our friends insisted for us to try the Hotel’s restaurant Le Karmin, where they serve a originals meals with fresh ingredients of the day.
I guess these holidays will be unforgetable, and we won’t hesitate to give you our feedbacks after christmas !!
What about you ? where are you spending your holiday ?
