About the Resort

This resort, although not very attractive, is very good for families. The few hotels within the resort are run by tour operators such as Club Med. The concrete nature of the resort makes it unappealing from the approach road. It has improved over the years and is capable of offering some glorious views in a pretty setting. In Flaine itself everything is close to hand including supermarket, sports rental shop and ski schools. A visit to Chamonix is possible if you have access to a car.
