Valmorel in short

  • A successful copy of a traditional mountain village
  • Pedestrian centre
  • Perfect for the whole family
  • Great après-ski options

This French ski resort lives up to its name. In Valmorel la Belle (Valmorel the Beautiful) there are no concrete high-rise blocks. In this beautiful village you'll find mainly authentic, chalet-style buildings. The resort itself was nicely designed with a cobbled, pedestrian main street featuring traditional mountain architecture and this is where you will find most of the shops, bars and restaurants.

Après-ski ranges from quiet local bars and restaurants to lively pubs and bars with live music which create a vibrant atmosphere here. Together with the lower neighbourhood of Doucy Combelouvière, Valmorel is connected to the ski area Le Grand Domaine. Just like the ski resort's name, the ski area's name describes it perfectly! This ski area is large, versatile with excellent snow cover. There is something for every skier and snowboarders can show off their stunts in the fun park with its half pipe.

Part of the reason we love our ski holidays so much is because they give us the chance to be at one with nature. So, smelly car exhaust fumes aren't exactly welcome! For this reason, more and more ski resorts are banning cars in the village centre. The only "vehicles" allowed are electric taxis and horse-drawn carriages. Pedestrians have priority and you'll see people wandering down the middle of the streets carrying their skis or even skiing right through the village centre! Here are 10 of our ... More ›
