French Alps

AlpsnightCham TownMeribel1

The mountain ranges in the southeast of France are some of the most spectacular in the world. They also attract many skiiers to their slopes in winter. The Alps stretch pretty well from Geneva to the Riveria and consist of many famous ski resort towns: 

  • Chamonix is a large town in a lovely valley at the foot of Europe's highest mountain Mont Blanc
  • Meribel has more an traditional alpine village feel and contains small hamlets on the slopes
  • Tignes and Val d'Isere are more modern and trendy ski resorts

  • Courcheval a large ski resort divided into three levels 1550, 1650 and 1850 (height above sea level

  • Val Thorens is Europe's highest ski resort

  • Avoriaz near Geneva on the Swiss border has often been voted Europe's most popular family resort with no cars, a cable car to get you there (to 1850m) and horse drawn carriages. It is a modern resort with high rises fashioned in wooden chalet style, only 50 years old and they have a music festival. Looking down the valley you see the long standing ski resort village of Morzine.

Other nearby towns which act as a launching place for the Alps include Annecy and Geneva.
