Great Value Ski Holiday…

Hotel Val D'Este

This historic hotel is right in the heart of the thermal spa town of St Gervais-les-Bains, with restaurants, bars and shops all around. The telecabine to access the ski area of St Gervais, Bettex and Megève Mont d’Arbois is just 800m away.

There is a ski bus a short walk away, or it will take approximately 10 minutes to walk there. You can leave your skis and boots in heated lockers at the top of the Bettex telecabine, enabling you to return in ‘normal’ shoes.

The hotel does not have its own restaurant and so the Val d’Este is offered on a bed and breakfast basis, but with the added bonus of afternoon tea when you return from the slopes.

The Hotel Val d’Este has fairly basic but comfortable accommodation, which is always clean and welcoming.

Additional facilities include a comfy ‘salon de the’ and lounge, and also outdoor terrace for those sunny days – perfect for watching the world go by.

Hotel managers, Christophe and his wife, offer very warm and friendly service, and excellent hospitality, always on hand to answer questions or offer advice. Christophe speaks good English too, so no worries there.
