3 Valleys Information

The 3 Valleys, France has 1400 km2 that are fitted out for winter sports activities during the winter months and numerous other activities in the summer such as hiking, climbing, fishing and mountain biking. The 3 Valleys have come a long way since 1925. At that time several English businessmen and experienced skiers wanted to create a resort in France like those that already existed in Austria and the Swiss Grisons. In order to do so they asked Arnold Lunn, the most senior of the British skiers and inventor of the slalom, to go and explore the Saint-Bon valley. He organised a small expedition to methodically prospect the Dauphinoise and Savoyard Alps. His verdict of the 3 Valleys was as follows: "in Savoie there is an exceptional site that comprises three almost parallel valleys: Saint-Bon, Les Allues and Belleville. In spite of their different features, they lend themselves well to the development of large resorts".

A ski holiday in the 3 Valleys offers excellent snow coverage - with skiing available at between 1300m - 3230m. The slopes are magnificent, very well positioned, the risks of avalanches are minimal, they are easy to locate and therefore easy to stop. There are also now over 10 Michelin starred restaurants in the 3 Valleys. 

Peak Retreats features the resorts of La Tania, St Martin de Belleville and Brides les Bains in the 3 Vallees, providing a great selection of hand-picked accommodation across the area. See individual resort pages for further information. Peak Retreats also offers 3 Valleys lift passes, ski school and ski hire.
