The Grand Massif includes resorts that most people will have heard of but not necessarily know where they are. The main resorts include Samoens, Flaine, Les Carroz and Morillon. As the crow flies, the ski area is very close to the famous Portes Du Soleil ski area yet tends to be quieter and offers great value in comparison to other resorts in France. We offer some amazing luxury chalets in the Grand Massif, most of which have an abundance of alpine charm yet offer incredible value for luxury.

The ski area offers 265km of piste over nearly 150 runs so is more than adequate for a week of skiing. It is the 4th largest ski area in France! The other major appeal of the Grand Massif is that the ski area is very close to Geneva. It takes around an hour to reach Samoens for example, which makes it a great ski resort for those whose stomachs don’t take too kindly to mountain roads.

So, what kind of properties can you expect in the ski area? The majority of this ski area is made up of charming mountain villages, whilst the resort of Flaine is more purpose built. There are very few chalets in Flaine and none that we would classify as luxury. You tend to find the more luxurious properties in Samoens and Morillon. Due to the history of these resorts, a lot of the luxury chalets in the Grand Massif tend to be converted farmhouses or buildings with historic charm. Here are some of the finest examples.

 

Ferme du Ciel, Samoens

It has a large open plan living area and can sleep up to 16 people in a luxurious but traditional environment.
