LOCATION AND SKI STATIONS The house is situated in Avonnex, a small hamlet above the town of Taninges, providing easy access to a number of ski areas: 1.) The Grand Massif (12 minute drive): The closest access point is from the cable car in the village of Morillon. The ski area consists of Les Carroz, Samoëns, Morillon, Sixt Fer à Cheval and Flaine and has 265km of pistes. With a top station of 2500 metres, mostly north-facing slopes, and close proximity to Mt Blanc and the microclimate it generates, this is one of the Haute-Savoie’s most snow-sure ski resorts. 2.) Les Portes du Soleil (9 minute drive): The closest access point is from just outside Les Gets. Les Portes du Soleil is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world with 12 stations that lie between France and Switzerland including Avoriaz, Châtel, Les Gets, Morzine, Champéry, Morgins, Torgon, Les Crosets and Champoussin in the Val-d’Illiez. 3.) Praz de Lys–Sommand (14 minute drive): The small ski station at Praz de Lys is behind Avonnex on the way to Les Gets and provides a delightful alternative to its more famous neighbours. Geneva airport is just 45 minutes away. The Giffre and Morzine valleys are just as popular in the summer with numerous activities and festivals all season long. Check out the Samoens, Morillon, Morzine and Les Gets tourist sites for more information. Fees paid by the vendor.
Le Grand Massif Ski Area
The Grand Massif ski region incorporates the ski resorts of Morillon, Samoeons, Flaine, Clusaz, Sixt and Les Carroz.
The Samoëns ski area offers a varied playground accessible to all. For expert skiers there are black and red pistes at the top of the resort and a vast off-piste area to indulge your enthusiasm. Beginners will improve on the lower, more gentle blue and green slopes which were entirely re-designed in 2003. Small children are welcomed at the children's ski area (jardin d´enfants) at the top of the Grand Massif Express cable car.
At 2 500 m, the summit of the Grandes Platières... A breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Mont Blanc seems to be just a couple of steps away, so impressive is its presence. The Désert de Platé, a vast snowy territory with a unique geological curiosity; a genuine stone glacier over 40 million years old!
Flaine offers wide open spaces with 140 km of pistes of all levels, marked and made safe. Just a few oases where you can eat and drink punctuate the landscape which is otherwise an untouched natural space.
Morillon is the perfect place to enjoy relaxed snowsports with the whole family, in welcoming and authentic natural surroundings. Among the 72 pistes of the Grand Massif, Marvel, the beautiful green run is a must for those who wish to combine the pleasure of skiing with the discovery of local fauna, as explained on the information boards along the edge of the piste. It even has a local hero… Did you know that Morillon is the home of Antoine Dénériaz, the 2006 Olympic downhill champion ?
Samoens Ski Resort
Samoëns is a beautiful village, listed 88th in the French National Office of Historic Monuments, and the only ski resort in France to be so listed. The impressive Grand Massif mountain range surrounds Samoëns, and the rich fertile countryside has established long-standing agricultural roots.
The Giffre River runs through the valley and there are several lakes which provide the focal points for some of the numerous walks in the area. Samoens is a village, not just a ski resort so is busy and vibrant all year round, with an impressive range of restaurants, cafes and bars catering to all tastes as well as a widely varying selection of shops and other amenities.
