Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Vallorcine, France your home away from home

Those looking for a ski holiday that includes a relaxing stay at an unspoilt ski village should look no further than Vallorcine. Situated in the Haute-Savoie department of the French state of Rhone-Alpes, this locale provides excellent accommodation in the form of spacious renovated chalets and apartments with beautiful views. Visitors here will enjoy a number of snow-centred activities as well as be close to first-class ski resorts. But even when not skiing, visitors can walk around and admire the beauty of this locale.

Things to do on holiday to Vallorcine, France

Vallorcine provides the perfect grounds for cross-country skiing as well as deep snow skiing. And the beauty is that skiers of all levels will find the right piste to accommodate them. Those just starting out can go to the Col de Balme area where they will find 25km of pistes that are suitable for most age groups. This is the place to ski for those going on a family skiing holiday. More seasoned skiers can head to the Piste d’Emosson which is a challenging black run. The trails here are well maintained and holidaymakers will have nothing to complain about. There is even a skating rink for those who don’t fancy the slopes. And after a hard day’s fun, visitors will find ample refreshment in Vallorcine’s restaurants and bars or get a full-body massage at any of several spas.

Places to visit on holiday to Vallorcine, France

Not far from Vallorcine is one of France’s oldest ski resorts, Chamonix. This locale, which hosted the 1924 Winter Olympics, is home to the Aiguilles du Midi and other peaks. It also has what is considered one of the world’s best off-piste ski runs; the Vallée Blanche. The daunting peaks of Aiguilles du Midi and the Aiguilles Rouges provide a real test for even the bravest of mountaineers. Mountain bikers also love Chamonix in summer as it presents them with challenging trails.

Weather in Vallorcine, France

The temperate climate Vallorcine experiences is more or less typical of the Rhone-Alpes region. This means that in summer temperatures are not uncomfortably hot, hovering between 25 and 27°C. Come winter, temperature drop, as expected, but not too steeply. Between November and January temperatures remain above 5°C. The rainfall in Vallorcine is pretty much consistent throughout the year, with all months receiving an average of between 40 and 60mm.

Travel to Vallorcine, France

Those who will be chartering a flight to Vallorcine can land at one of two airstrips: Megeve Airdrome or the Nancy-Essey Airport, both of which are less than 20 miles from Vallorcine. However, those depending on commercial flights should arrange to land at the Metz-Nancy-Lorraine airport which handles mostly domestic flights from Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse and other French cities. Visitors therefore first have to land in one of France’s international airports (usually Charles de Gaulle in Paris) before boarding a Régional or Twin Jet flight to Metz-Nancy-Lorraine. There they will find taxis as well as rental vehicles from Avis, National, Hertz and Europcar.

                                                            A wonderful week in a fabulous chalet

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            it is a beautiful traditional alpine chalet, refurbished to the highest standard. it is in a lovely location with wonderful views. the listing was very accurate, we were 20 and it was plenty big enough. it is well furnished, stocked and maintained and the hot tub and audio visual equipment are state of the art. the owner and manager were on hand to give us local advice, ski shops, lifts, restaurants and bars, which was very useful. the local restaurants and bars within 150 metres are fine and there is a free bus to and from Argentieres and Chamonix. I would certainly recommend this chalet to anyone who wants a skiing, hiking, mountain holiday.

                                                            Lovely space, hot tub and fire

                                                            Really convenient for slopes in Le tour and ski bus to access rest of valley. Could do with doors rather than curtains on loo's!

                                                            Cosy, comfortable and a great location

                                                            This was the second time we had stayed in this apartment, as it fulfills all your family needs. It is really close to the lifts, comfortable, warm and in a quite location. It is also spacious and well laid out. Le Tour is a really lovely, charming place to stay. It's small but old and has a few good places to eat, but book in the school holidays as they get very busy. The slopes are just right for family fun and not that busy as there isn't much rent-able accommodation in Le Tour and it's a bus ride from the other, more commercial resorts further down the valley. I would recommend this place to anyone.
