, nights

The Hotel Planibel is in an excellent ski-in, ski-out location right by the gondola and chairlift. It’s near the centre, with all of La Thuile’s shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance - so you can save your energy for the slopes.

The complex itself has an extensive range of facilities onsite - cafés, bars and restaurants - so after you’re done with skiing, you won’t even have to step outside again. There’s a huge indoor pool, as well as a sauna and steam room, ideal for relaxing in the afternoons and evenings. If you’ve still got energy to burn, then head to the fitness centre.

Hungry? You’ll be well taken care of here. There’s a range of restaurants and bars onsite, as well as a mini-market for grabbing a quick snack. The buffet breakfasts and gourmet 4-course evening meals will round off your days nicely.

When you’re finally ready for bed, you’ll look forward to returning to your cosy room. We’ve got twin and quad rooms available, as well as options for sole occupancy, so the Planibel really is ideal for everyone.

Throw in superb views of the surrounding mountains and it's no wonder this hotel is such a popular choice with customers year after year.

And for Winter 19/20, the little ones will be well looked after in the Pepi Penguin Nursery or Beanie Bear Club, which are based in the hotel. Your kids will have activities and games to keep them busy when they're not out in the snow.

Families

Coming to La Thuile for Winter 19/20

The Hotel Planibel is host to Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club, which are open to all children staying in La Thuile.

Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) is run by UK-qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room equipped with games and toys. Outdoor play included (weather and parental consent permitting).

What's included

  • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
  • 2-course hot lunch
  • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
  • A daily routine and activities report for your child

Activities vary daily. We'll find time for stories, singing, arts and crafts including painting and collage making, plus messy play in the sand tray and free play with age-relevant toys set out for the children to choose what they want to do.

This operator is also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so they aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe snowy walks, a gondola ride or snow painting. And if your child is used to a sleep, that can be factored in too.

Beanie Bear Club (4-8 years) provides plenty of fun-filled days as childcare staff offer a combination of care and skiing, which includes 5 x AM ski lessons, pick-up and drop-off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by staff in the dedicated Beanie Bear Club room.

What’s included

  • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
  • 5 x AM ski lessons, ski school drop-offs and pick-ups*
  • Child skis, boots and helmet hire
  • 2-course hot lunch
  • Snacks and drinks throughout the day

* Lift passes aren't included as each child's needs are different. If and when your child feels confident enough to use the lifts, you'll need to buy a lift pass locally. Children will have 5 day ski school with a day off on Wednesday. This can be used as a rest day from skiing, when the childcare team will run an action-packed morning of activities.

Activities vary daily – to include games, arts and crafts and storytime – and are often based around a theme.

This operator is also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so they aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

Both Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club operate for 6 days and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. Evening clubs are also available to book in resort for an extra charge.

All staff are UK-qualified, English-speaking and first-aid trained, and have had DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checks. And they prioritise maintaining the correct adult:child ratios.

Please note, all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

Please Note

Tourist tax payable locally - An approximate fee of €1.60 per person per night.

Important Covid-19 refund promise

Free amends

You can amend your holiday for free up to 28 days before your departure date, whatever destination you’ve booked, if you're flying with this operator.

Also, if you're due to go on holiday but have been diagnosed with COVID-19, have symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate, you can submit a medical certificate and amend your booking for free. This operator's normal terms & conditions apply for cancellations. If you wish to cancel your holiday, we advise you to speak to your insurance company.

Cash refunds

If there are overseas local restrictions that impact your ability to get on the mountain – like the ski area is closed due to COVID-19 – then we’ll contact you to amend or cancel your holiday for free.

If your holiday has to be cancelled for reasons related to COVID-19, you’ll receive a full cash refund for the amount you paid.

COVID Cover

Get peace of mind with our COVID Cover benefits (provided by the Holiday to Home insurance policy with AXA Insurance UK Plc). These include free amends if you contract COVID-19 before you travel and insurance for medical costs if you contract it while you’re away.

  • When you go on holiday with us in Winter 2020/21, you’ll automatically be covered for overseas medical assistance if you contract COVID-19. You’ll also be covered for any testing costs and we’ll fly you home for medical treatment if you need it (subject to T&Cs).
  • If you’re asked to quarantine while you’re away, we’ll cover you for the extra time you’re there and for a new return flight home.
  • You can amend your holiday for free if you contract COVID-19 before your holiday.
  • Your Holiday to Home cover from AXA Insurance offers specific protection if your holiday is impacted by COVID-19. You’ll still need to book separate winter sports travel insurance too, to cover all other aspects of your trip (e.g. winter sports activities, cancellation, baggage and medical cover for other conditions or accidents).
  • Take a look at the T&Cs. You’ll also find answers to some frequently asked questions about the policy, and the full Holiday to Home insurance policy.
  • This operator is doing everything they can to protect you against COVID-19 during your holiday, from deep-cleaning their aircraft to making sure our accommodations and ski partners meet the highest standards of hygiene.

Quarantine-free

This operator promise they'll only take you on quarantine-free holidays. This means if they know you'll need to self-isolate or quarantine when you arrive at a destination, they won't take you there, and if you need to self-isolate when you return to the UK, you'll have the option to amend or cancel your holiday for free.

Following FCDO advice

If the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advice changes before you go or while you’re on holiday, we’ll contact you to discuss the next steps. If it changes to ‘all but essential travel’, you can amend or cancel your holiday for free.

Keeping you informed

We’ll contact you before you go about the current safety regulations in your resort. We’re working closely with our accommodation providers and ski suppliers to implement local rules and keep you safe. As most ski resorts operate in winter only, we can’t confirm any details quite yet.

While you’re away, the resort team will always be on hand to support you – you can get in touch with us 24/7 by phone.

Book with confidence

This operator is part of a group of companies, one of the world’s leading travel groups. All of their package holidays include flights, transfers and accommodation, and are ABTA and ATOL protected.
