Hotel L’Aigle


Extract from Pete, Trip Advisor – Valmeinier, February 2023

Perfect family hotel with heart. Homely and rustic hotel with the friendliest and most helpful staff you could ever wish for. The term customer service does not do justice for the genuine and fun staff who especially made my four year olds stay a brilliant one. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All superstars. Room clean and functional with plenty of storage space and perfect shower. Super food all week and free flowing free wine during the meal. A lovely atmosphere with staff and guests alike mingling and having fun. Great proximity to the slopes and a hidden gem of a resort that I think the French have understandably wanted to keep for themselves. Good amount of varied slopes that are not too busy and a pretty little resort centre with a smattering of shops, bars and restaurants plus a handy Spar over road from hotel. Finally flexible options for coach or sorting out your own flights and the hotel lays on the transfers for a very reasonable cost. Literally the perfect ski holiday. Well done Snowcoach you’ve nailed it!

Extract from Graham B, Trip Advisor – Valmeinier, April 2022

Another great holiday. Just returned after last week of season. Plenty of snow and most runs still open.


This was our 19th season with Snowcoach so that speaks volumes. L'Aigle is situated in fantastic location, 100metres or less. The hotel has its own boots/skis for hire, and you can pre book lift passes with them, so all you need to do is turn up and you can head off out skiing.
From Valmeinier you can ski across to Valloire, fantastic skiing area.

Skiing with Snowcoach is a social experience and a great way to meet other skiers. Meals are taken on tables of about ten so always chatting to different people if you wish. The staff were brilliant. It is not an expensive luxury holiday but fantastic value for money. Rooms are basic but clean and tidy, ours was lovely with great views of the mountains.

Plenty to eat at breakfast, and really nice 4 course meals during our stay. Main course one night was best duck I've eaten. (Well done, Drew). Complimentary wine is provided during the first three courses. Outdoor hot tub overlooking mountain, lovely.

We travelled on their coach, long journey but coaches and drivers are good so worth the time. We travelled at the height of the P&O problems so feared delays at the ports. Snowcoach had swapped bookings to Irish Ferries and thankfully there were no delays on either journey. Can't wait till next year.


Rebecca & Alex B. Pinner – Valmeinier, April 2022

Had such a lovely time and so cosy – just wish we were staying longer. Thank you!


Extract from David M, Trip Advisor - Valmeinier, March 2022

Great holiday format and superb staff. Just returned from a fabulous week’s skiing with Snowcoach in Valmeinier. We had a glorious run of eight full day’s blue sky skiing with a mixed ability group. The accommodation is quite basic but warm and clean, the meals were decent and plentiful. The club hotel promotes integration amongst guests and staff, which was brilliant.

The staff were consistently great but a special shout out to Neil, along with Jack and Drew for their great humour and excellent ski guide touring, expertly picking the best slopes which helped make a fantastic week.

Snowcoach were exceptionally easy to deal with and dealt brilliantly with the unexpected P&O situation, they provide a great value for money service and experience.

Well done guys, we will be back!


Liz C, Conwy – Valmeinier, March 2022

An excellent week in all. Staff very friendly yet professional and helpful.  Drew the manager has to be one of the best in over 30 years of travelling with Snowcoach.

Peter D, Norwich – Valmeinier, March 2022

Yet another amazing Snowcoach experience. Snowcoach and Hotel l’Aigle is really one of skiing’s best kept secrets.

It is the Snowcoach family (team) that from start to finish make it such a magical experience.

We have been many times with Snowcoach, but this was the first time with our children, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We will definitely be back in 2023! Well done and thank you.


David A, Chichester – Valmeinier, March 2022

Excellent staff, great vibe, friendly and welcoming. We loved every minute.


Extract from Simon T, Trip Advisor - Valmeinier, February 2022

Another great week. Just back from our fourth visit. A great budget hotel. Rooms are clean and warm. Breakfast is serve yourself (as much as you want). 4pm tea/coffee and freshly made cakes and then a 4-course evening meal with free wine which will fill you up.

The staff are mainly students and this year’s team were definitely the best we have had although we have not had a bad group.

Hotel is 50 yards from the lifts which is another great plus. Will be back for our 5th time I'm sure.

Sue T, High Wycombe – Valmeinier, February 2022

It is nice to meet staff at the dinner table. Fabulous hotel, fabulous holiday, fabulous staff!


Kirsty D, St Albans – Valmeinier, February 2022

Huge thanks to Neil and Jack for social skiing.  All the staff are fab.


Sam I, Kingsbridge – Valmeinier, February 2022

Everyone who works in the hotel has made the holiday!

Jonny L, Whitstable – Valmeinier, February 2022

Food has been really good. Very clean hotel. Great ski team – thank you!


Gareth J, Welshpool – Valmeinier, January 2022

The staff are probably your best asset, fantastic all around!


Richard H, Sutton – Valmeinier, January 2022

You seem to have things pretty well wrapped up!


Bryan H & Becca T, Solihull - Valmeinier, March 2020

Becca and I set off from Watford on March 6 and we had a very quick and comfortable journey out to Valmeinier, thanks to Mark and Titus for a great job.


Our week at the l’Aigle was very enjoyable, with good food, great company, and fantastic skiing due to the amount of snow and some lovely sunny days. Of course we were keeping up with the news headlines from home but we all felt as if we were in a bubble, somehow protected from it all. When David arrived mid-week and explained what Snowcoach were doing to improve our protection from the Coronavirus it made us all more aware, and we were all grateful that you were taking things seriously and doing your best to take care of us all. At the end of our week, we were all looking forward to getting home safely and thanks to Mark and Sarah we had another very smooth and uneventful trip.

We had a great holiday, and we’d like to thank everyone at Snowcoach for making that possible, but we’d also like to thank your whole team for their dedication and professionalism in handling an incredibly difficult situation. We look forward to more ski trips with you in the future, but for now good luck and stay safe.

Extract from Claire L, Trip Advisor - Valmeinier, February 2020

This is our third visit to Hotel l’Aigle and our fifth time with Snowcoach (last year we went to their sister hotel in St. Gervais which in itself speaks volumes).  As usual the staff are incredibly enthusiastic and friendly.  Nothing is too much trouble. 


We visited in half term as necessity and the hotel was full.  However, everything went smoothly.  The meals were wholesome and filling.  Ski rental is dealt with very professionally and you exit the boot room via the back door and two sets of stairs and you are at the first chairlift – brilliant!


Extract from Mark, Trip Advisor - Valmeinier, February 2020

This is the third year running we’ve been to the hotel and will be definitely be going back.  Do not expect 5* luxury, it’s just not that sort of hotel …. However, it’s very friendly, comfortable and best of all VERY convenient for the slopes.  Ski and boot hire are on site in the hotel too.  The food is not haute cuisine BUT is well made, tasty and filling – just what you need on a skiing holiday!  It has an outdoor hot tub and sauna too.  Best of all the resort is very quiet, hardly any queues and the skiing excellent for all abilities.


Ben W, Coventry - Valmeinier, February 2020

Snowcoach concept – staff, food, skiing – top banana!  Mealtimes are well organised.  Lounge area really comfortable.  As parents we felt the hotel was safe for our children and we could all relax and enjoy our holiday.  Great team of young people working in the hotel.  See you next year!


Extract from Anna A, Trip Advisor - Valmeinier, January 2020

This was our first time with Snowcoach holidays to the Hotel l’Aigle and it won’t be our last.  The organisation was excellent and our journey was comfortable.  We were greeted on arrival by the hotel manager and then we had coffee and breakfast – just what we needed!  It was comfortable and warm in the hotel and afternoon tea and cakes most welcome. 


The rooms have comfortable beds, plenty of storage space and choice of bath/shower with plenty of hot water.  The piste was a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel up some steps to the chair lifts – easy.  We would recommend the social skiing – it’s a fantastic way of getting to know the area and skiing in Valloire.  It was sad to leave – we had a fantastic holiday, met some amazing people and did plenty of skiing in lovely conditions.  We would highly recommend Snowcoach and l’Aigle.


Lynda P, Basingstoke - Valmeinier, January 2020

The great location and excellent staff make us regular customers with Snowcoach.  Your staff are amazing! Thank you for another fantastic holiday.
