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.

Coming from Geneva airport, it’s an easy 1.5 hour drive, mostly on the motorway then around 30 mins on beautiful mountain roads until you reach Le Buet. The house is super cosy and modern at the same time. The kitchen is well equipped and the open plan living space is great for enjoying dinner, games and cosying by the fire. Access to Argentiere and Chamonix was really easy by car and train. There was a really handy beginner area nearby for beginners. It was great to come back here every day after skiing - so much so that the kids didn’t want to go anywhere!

                                                                                                      We stayed at Chalet Seracs in March 2017. We were a mixed group of 19 people ranging from 24 to 59 years old. Trust me this property is as nice as it looks on the website! The location is absolutely perfect and the views down the valley are stunning. We made more use of the hot tub this holiday than any other ski trip because of the views. All of the rooms are a good size (bigger than the pokey rooms in catered chalets) and are all decorated to a good standard. The Chalet has all of the extras you need - sauna, pool table, big TVs etc. It is a short walk up the hill to the cable car and the skiing in the Le Tour area. It was very easy to either drive or get the bus to the other parts of Chamonix. We used a company (Chalet Kitchen) to deliver food. They brought us breakfast every morning and dinner for that evening, which we just needed to heat up. So much easier than shopping/cooking for 19 people. We also had a couple of evening meals at the Hotel Olympique by the cable car which was very good. The Chalet owner was also always very helpful and responsive in the run up to the trip. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this chalet to anyone else.
