With a record season of snow fall there’s still a good few weeks left of the perfect powder to sink your skis or snowboard into, making the most of the springtime slopes.
Only a few short hours away from Geneva, Valmorel forms part of the Grand Domaine, one of the largest ski resorts in France. With over 150 kilometres of pistes, the Grand Domaine ski area offers an extensive range of challenging, intermediate and beginner slopes, for skiers and boarders of all abilities.
Valmorel is a charming resort nestled amongst the breathtaking mountainous terrain of the French Alps. The resort is a hidden gem with a quaint, rustic village and cosy chalet-style restaurants and bars. Valmorel is a place where you can immerse yourself in traditional alpine culture as well as indulging in the luxurious amenities Club Med has to offer.
With an extensive choice of accommodation ranging from stylish suites, family rooms, and luxurious chalets complete with private butler, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. The rooms are designed to blend with the alpine surroundings, and comprise of stone and wood fixtures to create a rustic impression, but with an added modern twist of deep red coloured walls, flat screen televisions and lavish beds to rest aching limbs after a hard day on the slopes.
For those looking for that extra indulgence, The Lodge is an exclusive, private space with 25 spacious and elegantly designed suites and rooms, with private balconies and stunning views of the entire resort.
With a range of restaurants offering a choice of cuisine, the all-inclusive catering is good quality and in vast quantity, an added bonus after returning ravenous from climbing up and down a mountain. There’s also an à la carte restaurant available to with a delicious menu.
The ski-in-ski-out location is a great plus for this resort, and makes it easy and cost effective to ski back at lunch time to take advantage of the all-inclusive cuisine. There are also a number of mountain restaurants to sample some alpine delights.
Club Med organise a variety of themed party nights at the resort. We enjoyed a late night live rock and roll band and early evening cocktails together with a Cirque-de-Soleil style performance, making an interesting and enjoyable pre and after-dinner experience. Make sure you save some energy for the late night dancing too!
Ski lessons are available for all ages and abilities, and the resort is fully equipped with excellent facilities for children. There is a teen room where ravenous teenagers can help themselves to snacks, Playstations, table football and a cinema room, enough to keep them entertained for hours on end. There are also dedicated areas and organised activities for babies, toddlers and younger children so adults have the chance to enjoy their ski holiday.
The resort also offers an indoor swimming pool, fitness day centre, outdoor hot tubs and a spa to relax and unwind. The relaxation back massages are heavenly and highly recommended by us. Unwind with a soothing massage and retire after your treatment to the relaxation room with a delicious herbal tea and a breathtaking view of the snow-covered mountains.
