1/5 Heaven for families


Valmorel is family-friendly and très French village resort in the Alps. If you're coming from Geneva, it's the first ski resort you'll reach in the Tarentaise valley, but this pretty little village is often overlooked by Brits, who tend to head towards the bigger Paradiski and Trois Vallées resorts. Here are five very good reasons why Valmorel is one of the Alps hidden gems.

Firstly, Valmorel has been awarded the ‘Famille Plus’ label, recognising the tailor-made infrastructure for families including an extensive range of activities to suit all ages, first-rate childcare facilities and prices to suit all budgets. The village itself has a very relaxed atmosphere, aided by the fact that it is pedestrianised and families with children can walk freely around the resort. Three beginner’s ski areas have been specially designed, reserved and made safe for learning and improving confidence.
