After a busy year, Christmas is a welcome time to unwind and catch up with family and friends.

At the Hotel l’Aigle you have two restaurants to choose from, both offering seasonal, gourmet dishes and a bar with a great selection of classic and exciting new cocktails. As a little Christmas present ‘from me to me’ you could treat yourself to one of the many spa treatments that the hotel offer. Treatments range from body treatments to manicures and facials.

Hotel Val Thorens, Val Thorens
Hotel Val Thorens has two equally amazing restaurants to choose from and there is even a festive feast on Christmas Eve (in Europe that’s the main day of celebration). Once you’ve built up an appetite on the slopes you will most likely need some après before your evening meal which you can enjoy in front of the open fires in the hotel. We can’t think of many things more festive than enjoying a fire side vin chaud after a day racing the many Santas who have hit the slopes.
