Le Grand Massif consists of five main villages, Samoëns , Morillon, Les Carroz, Sixt Fer à Cheval and the most famous of them all, Flaine. Combined, it holds more than 140 ski runs, accounting for 265km of slopes.
With more than 239 snow guns, the resorts are assured to have fantastic ski seasons. In addition, Samoëns and Flaine have a large amount of summer activities, including hiking trails, biking and two nature reserves located conveniently within the ski areas for nature enthusiasts to enjoy.
Les Samoëns, Morillon and Les Carroz in particular are filled with a vast amount of natural wildlife, a key attraction for a large part of its visitors whether in winter or summer. Although considered a ski resort, Samoëns is more popular during the summer.
The villages have more of a small-town feel and aim to show the traditional alpine charm – very rare will you find a “tourist trap” restaurant in those villages. With small restaurants and bars with local dishes, it stays true to its roots. Flaine, on the other hand, is built-for-purpose, focuses solely on sporting activities and could be considered a minimalist ski haven, due to its stark 1960s architecture.
The entire region offers a wide variety of villages and a range of properties to purchase in Le Grand Massif to fit everyone’s needs.
