Valmorel

Thinking of a summer holiday to Valmorel? Located in the heart of the Massif de la Tarentaise, is beautiful Valmorel, a firm family favourite.

Valmorel Resort Information

Valmorel 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. Road access is straightforward, too, and there are direct TGV high-speed rail services from Paris, plus Eurostar 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 anyone with the urge to add a little variety to their stay, the range of outdoor activities.

Peak Retreats offers apartments in Valmorel. All our accommodation is hand-picked and of a very high standard (4*), providing the ideal base for a Valmorel ski holiday.
