Pierre & Vacances Residence Les Balcons de Bellevarde
Reviewed January 21, 2012

P&V Les Balcons de Bellevarde is an ideal location for anyone looking to go skiing in Val D'Isere on a budget. The rooms are very spacous and well equipped compared to other self catered locations of the same price. With a fully equipped kitchen it is possible to stock up on food from home and then cook once there to avoid the high prices.The closest lifts are around 100m from the door with the funival in La Daille being on of them, making access to the top of the Bellevarde ski area immediately available then the rest of Val and Tignes easily accessible. The free bus that links Val from Le Fornet to Le Daille stops directly across the road. Would definitely recommend and will be going again. Also the rooms have recently had a refurb unlike many places I've been before in espace killy.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The communal areas were well presented and our apartment was perfect. The recent revamp was well thought out and although the apartment was a 1 bedroom 4 person apt and there were 3 adults and 1 child we didn't feel on top of each other. Our shower was faulty when we arrived, we reported it and it was fixed within 20 minutes!!! My only gripe is that although having a really large fridge is handy I would have preferred to have had a slightly smaller fridge and an oven rather than just a hob and microwave but we managed perfectly well.

Really nice, comfortable apartments. The 'spare' beds were surprisingly comfortable too!
Location was ideal in that the lifts were a short 2 minute walk straight opposite the apartments and if you did want to start your day in the centre of Val, then the shuttle bus ran every 2 minutes and was super efficient. The shuttle also meant that enjoying the apres ski was not a problem since getting into town and back was so easy with the shuttle running up to 2am!
Another lovely aspect about the apartments was the all day sun on the balcony which was lovely to sit on at the end of the day if not making the most of apres in town. Also great location for a quiet night's sleep.
Overall - definitely recommend this

Stayed for 4 days early December 2009. Apartments are very good. Clean, smart and comfortable. Right at base of La Daille - easy access to piste and navette bus into Val d'Isere.

Just back from our second stay in these apartments, having discovered them last December. Val d'Isere would not be my first choice of ski resort (more about that later) but I chose it because of the excellent snow record and the fact that it opens one or two weeks earlier than most resorts.
We were lucky as we had 7 days out of 8 which were endless blue skies and sunshine - a great help for any slightly nervous skiers who like to be able to see where they're going! On the other day it snowed and was magical.
The apartments are great value for money and you don't have to book Saturday to Saturday, which you do in many resorts. Staff are friendly and helpful. The apartments are spacious if you are just two people, but the kitchen is definitely a one person kitchen and I would imagine space could be tight for families.
Similarly the lockers - I agree with the previous review that they leave a lot to be desired. The have heater/fans but these are either broken or just not switched on. If you hire skis rather than taking your own, better to leave them in the ski shop where they're better cared for.
On the downside, wifi is only available in reception which is disappointing in this day and age.
The location is great and there's a lovely bar at the foot of the slopes for apres-ski, the Rosee Blanche (same building as Le Barrillon restaurant which is also good, part of the same establishment). You can sit outside for as long as you can stand it, watching everyone coming back down, then when the frostbite starts to set in, go inside to the wood-burning stove and warm up.
However next year I'll be looking for a different pre- Christmas resort. The world cup finals were taking place both weekends we were there. Whilst this creates a great atmosphere, it means half the runs get closed off. The four or so reasonably gentle runs back to La Daille were reduced to one very busy, icy, bumpy red as the only ski-ing option. Difficult even for good skiers as every level attempted to get down it at the end of the day creating bottlenecks. The piste machines were all occupied on grooming the championship run and went nowhere near this one. It also wasn't clearf rom the start of the run, where it starts out as a green,that it was the only way down from halfway. So you got loads of beginners expecting an easy run down - I guess they only did it once!
Poor management of the slopes and disappointing in terms of value for money. The ski pass prices should be reduced accordingly.
I wouldn't recommend Val for beginners or early intermediates - above that level though, there's lots of scope. There are some nice fast new lifts and we never had any queues or busy slopes. Slopeside restaurants are good and plentiful.
On the whole, a good resort, but prices, a long transfer time, and closing down of slopes would make me look elsewhere for this time next year.
Apartments however are good.
