Résidence Le Lac du Lou offers comfortable apartments in the centre of Val Thorens. There are many nice shops, restaurants and bars just around the corner. The ski slope is not far away, so you can easily walk there in the morning.
The apartments are simple and all have slightly different furnishings. After a long day on the slopes be sure to head to the centre for a delicious cheese fondue and a glass of wine.
The apartments each have different owners, therefore the interior can differ. The pictures therefore only serve as an example.
