I needed a break and I chose Valloire and one thing I can tell you now, beautiful Valloire is the best kept secret of the French Alps!
Valloire is this marvelous tiny village in the middle of the Alps, in Savoie (France).
With 70% of the 150km of pistes above 2000m, Valloire ski resort has first class snow conditions. There are more than 85 runs throughout Valloire covering all skiing ability, all levels, including a good choice of reds and blues for intermediates, and obviously crazy landscapes you will never forget. For experts there is some good off-piste opportunities I experienced myself as a highly confirmed skier, near Valmeinier as well as blacks like the long ‘cascade’.
But enough talking of skiing. Valloire has so much more to offer !
I recommend you to skip a skiing day, and enjoy instead a day of discovering the “après-ski’ warm atmospheres of Valloire bars, traditional restaurants and chalets, activities and so on.
Valloire also features two farms: the Ladriot and the Pres Clos, which sell local cheese, milk and more! So guess what, you just can’t miss eating in a local restaurant. Food lovers : you can’t miss the terroir of Valloire. Between cheeses, wines, red meat, regional fruits and vegetables and a unique savoir-faire, your will be totally astonished by the traditions of the Alps.
To conclude, how better your break could be : food, nice and very warm people, charming housing, breath-taking views and landscapes, extreme sports, crazy sensations as well as crazy tastes..
Don’t thank me! And enjoy the winter.
