Valloire in France Resort Guide

This very French resort area developed from a small farming community of the 1930's and has branched out across the Maurienne Valley. A wide variety of terrain is on offer and this helps make the area a popular family destination. Valloire/Valmeniere has twin stations at 1500 and 1800 and retains a rustic village charm and remains excellent value. The pistes are spread over three equal sized wooded valleys. It is regarded as a mainly intermediate area. The lower village nursery areas are vulnerable when the temperatures rise. Otherwise there are good nursery areas higher up, but this requires a full area lift pass. There is also some great ski touring options up towards the Col du Galibier (a tour de France route in Summer) There are over 400 snow cannons throughout the ski area combined with natural snowfall for guaranteed skiing throughout most of the season.


Accomodation & Après Ski

The locals are very friendly and welcoming. Although small, the resort of Valloire offers a chilled out but lively atmosphere in the evenings. Whether you want to eat some local 'savoyardes' specialities such as fondue, raclette and pierrade or a variety of Italian dishes at La Pizza, you'll find something to suit your mood. There are around 15 restaurants and dozens of bars in the centre of Valloire, most of them open until 2pm, such as Bar Centrale and the infamous Irish Pub L'Atelier, and after that you can hit the club scene, which open all night. It is very reasonable to go out whatever you do, so we recommend that you try to sample most of these places during your stay. Chez Fred is very popular
