Les Carroz

Les Carroz is one of the most family-friendly resorts in the French Alps. There are many chalet-style Savoyard buildings to choose from, conveniently positioned in the Grand Massif ski region. Plus, the Geneva airport is in its nearby proximity, which is also quite convenient.


Back in 1920, the French people built it as an answer to St. Moritz in Switzerland. Nowadays, it holds a somewhat more modest reputation, and everyone seems fine with that. But at the same time, it doesn’t lack luxury hotels where people from all over the world come to enjoy themselves. Plus, it has its airport, which is also something worth considering. One can observe some of the most stunning views of Mont Blanc from Megève.


Courchevel was once nothing but a small farming village. But things took off in 1946, and the small farming community was transformed into a plush ski resort. Nowadays, it is the home to Michelin star restaurants, luxury chalets, palatial hotels, and many other amenities to please the richest of the richest. Courchevel is located in the Three Valleys region and provides access to over 600 kilometers of ski stages, served by approximately 170 lifts.


The resort is known for its unique architecture, which is like in no place in the French Alps. The buildings feature sharp angles and bold lines, which perfectly blend in with the surrounding landscape. The strict no-car policy only adds up to its unique appeal. Even the most distant accommodation spots are a ten-minutes walk from all the bars and restaurants, which means that you won’t miss your car. It is good to know that Avoriaz is quite close to the Portes du Soleil ski area when it comes to skiing.
