Flaine in France Resort Guide

Purpose built popular Flaine nestles in a massive snow bowl and comprises three main settlements and one satellite village - Flaine Foret (1700m) above the main centre Flaine Forum (1600m) with Flaine Front de Neige (1500m) lower down. It is the centre of the Grand Massif circuit which offers over 265kms of skiing between Flaine, Les Carroz, and Samoens. It is well planned with the majority of the runs leading back to village level. Supposedly traffic free Flaine Foret is linked to Flaine Forum by free funiculars which operate 24 hours a day. Hameau de Flaine is a newer, attractive development of 65 Norwegian style chalets which is bus linked to the main centres. Flaine is especially popular with families who appreciate the range of convenient accommodation, easy access to the slopes, and many amenities close at hand to the accommodation centres. What much of the building block 60s architecture lacks in finesse and aesthetics is compensated for by convenience, and the very limited walking required, plus the excellent range of slopes.

Flaine has one of the best snow records in the Mont Blanc area


Accomodation & Après Ski

Flaine is not renowned for having the wildest après scene and nightlife in the Alps, howeverthere are a few good bars where you can kick back after a day on the slopes, and even a nightclub where you can party until the early hours. Après generally begins in one of Flaine’s many on-mountain bars and restaurants, many of which are only a short descent back to the resort centre where the fun continues.

le White pub is good and has a British feel to it and serves a wide range of beers, with some good offers during happy hour. They often have great live bands playing, and a large TV screen makes it the place to head when there’s a match on. Les Caves Night Club in Flaine Forum is a good choice if ypou are looking to party into the wee hours . Open from 11pm to 5am, seven days a week.
