How to get there
Valloire town hall likes to say it, to come by car or motorbike from anywhere there is only one traffic light! Indeed, the motorway leads to Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne, then after 25mn of ascent you have arrived.
By train+bus you just have to go to Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne (also called Saint-Michel Valloire) by TGV, then take a bus to Valloire :
Ski & Snowboard atmosphere
View of the village centre from the flat
In winter we are just a few minutes from the centre of Valloire, the shops and activities, the two cable cars of Crêt de la Brive and Sétaz, and the ski school meeting point. To get there, the Edelweiss ski slope is right next to our chalets (section accessible to accompanied "flocon" level children), frequent free shuttles pass by the chalets, and otherwise it's only an 8 minute walk down the slope or 15 minutes by road!
What makes Valloire so special is that it combines the advantages of a family resort on a human scale with those of a large domain equipped with 100 miles of ski slopes on 5 sides with the latest ski lifts.
Ski & Snowboard
The diversity of the winter activities is plethoric :
Every year activities are offered in the centre of the village

Hiking & Biking atmosphere
Lunch with view from the terrace of the flat
In the summer our flat is ideally situated 8mn on foot (bucolic little hiking trail) from the centre of Valloire, the shops and activities, and the Crêt de la Brive cable car (open in summer for pedestrians and mountain bikers), and 16mn on foot from the leisure centre (swimming pool, ice rink, wellness area). If necessary, everything can of course be done by car (private car park included in the rental).
Last but not least, our large 215 sqft sheltered terrace offers you all the space you need to store your equipment!
Whether you come to climb the passes by bike, go downhill by mountain bike (MTB) or go-kart, hike for a day, in a refuge or in a bivouac, go over the cliffs by climbing or via ferrata, get some fresh air by paragliding or ulm, or simply relax on the golf course, at the swimming pool or at the spa, you are bound to find what you are looking for in Valloire.
Valloire is situated between the Col du Télégraphe and the Col du Galibier, north of the Col du Lautaret, made famous by the Tour de France, in the heart of the Maurienne valley which claims to be the largest cycling area in the world. Cyclists, amateurs or professionals will be able to satisfy their cycling desires, whether regular or electric (available for hire on site)!
Mountain bike enthusiasts will not be outdone. Valloire is a paradise for mountain bikers... 100 miles of marked trails for all levels and 1 bike park (at the arrival of the Crêt de la Brive cable car). In just a few minutes the gondola takes you up to 2100m altitude to access different levels of descent, including a 5.5 miles family trail that winds between mountain pastures and forests.
In the village, a 260 yards Pump Track divided into 3 levels will also delight fans of the discipline, whether on a bike or a scooter. With free access, it is located right next to the Skate Park and the Ice Rink.

Valloire is nicknamed La Vallée d'Or by its inhabitants because of its exceptional sunshine which has nothing to envy to the Southern Alps, on the other side of the Col du Galibier. The 35,000 acres of high mountains around Mont Thabor and the Aiguilles d'Arves are home to a preserved fauna and flora that will satisfy your desire for nature. And if after several stays in our valley you would like to change valley, only 45 minutes by car the Meije and the Ecrins will offer you new territories to discover.
Hiking above Valloire
For the most part in the village, 3 via ferrata and hundreds of climbing routes will satisfy all desires. Several shops rent the material, and the Guide Bureau will be able to accompany you if necessary.
