It’s easy to see why they call it ‘Valmorel la Belle’ - the setting alone, in the heart of the Massif de la Tarentaise, is simply beautiful in any season.
Better still, the purpose-built ski village has been developing steadily since the late 1970s, as a result of which important lessons learnt elsewhere have been put into practice here; particularly in the architectural style used.
Low-rise chalet-style developments have a pleasing, premium look, are well proportioned and incorporate stone, timber and attractively painted stucco, with traditional Savoyard design features. The end results integrate successfully with the surrounding unspoilt high-mountain landscapes, whose aspect is softened locally by extensive tracts of forest.
The compact heart of the village has most essential services located conveniently around a single, car-free street. Elsewhere development has been mostly in clusters, taking account of return runs and thus taking full advantage of the ski-in/ski-out potential. Getting around is easy, with free half-hourly shuttle buses serving outlying accommodation. Road access is straightforward, too, and there are direct TGV high-speed rail services from Paris, plus Eurostar Ski Trains from London, into nearby Moûtiers (15km). You’ll need to pay for car parking in the traffic-free village, although there are 180 free unsecured parking spaces in nearby Crey (1.5km).
For non-skiers, or for anyone with the urge to add a little variety to their stay, the range of outdoor activities includes snowshoeing, ice-climbing and Segway hire.
