Having a long history of tourism, dating back to the 18th century, the Haute Savoie region has always charmed anyone looking for ski chalets and ski properties on sale in the Alps. With beautiful glaciers, large lakes, and stunning mountainous landscapes, all three villages that make up Le Grand Domaine, Valmorel, St. François-Longchamp and Doucy Combelouvière sit between 1,250m to 2,550m in altitude.
Given its natural appeal, the resort attracts families and nature lovers all year long to enjoy its outdoor activities, but it’s the skiing that keeps people from all over the world flocking to the region. The region is also perfectly adapted for cross-country skiing.
The village of Valmorel was built in the late 1970s along with the other village, St. François-Longchamp. Both offer the traditional look and feel of the Savoyian culture. These two villages mostly attract young families and older visitors looking for a quieter and more relaxed ski resort.
That being said, a lot of activities are offered off the pistes. There is over 60km of prepared walking path and snowshoe hiking. There is also ice skating, sledding and dog sledge rides among other things. In the summer, the region is fantastic for hiking and cycling.
