Overview of Valloire Ski Resort

When you ski Valloire you’re on the slopes of one of France’s original ski resorts, with the first fun on the snow reported in 1900. The resort’s history goes back much further however and part of its enduring appeal lies in its traditional values and ancient heart.

The village is centred on its seventeenth century church and is choc-full of the kind of traditional delis, patisseries, epiceries and boulangeries that everyone wants to visit France for. There’s a weekly market too. Built in a traditional wooden style, the accommodation blends in perfectly with the authentic atmosphere of the village.

For skiers and boarders the ski area itself is a big attraction too, the largest in the Maurienne Valley. It is linked by lifts and ski runs to purpose-built Valmeinier ski resort and there are lifts and runs for all standards and a highly regarded terrain park. The resort is also famous for its annual ice sculpture festival. To visit the resort, check out our Valloire ski deals page which has some excellent offers in a wide range of self-catered accommodation.
