Located in Flaine, 656 feet from Flaine Ski School, Hôtel LAPIAZ & Spa - FLAINE has a restaurant, a bar and a spa and wellness center, as well as free WiFi. Loved our long weekend stay at Hotel Lapiaz. The location was great for us, right on the slopes so it's easy to be one of the first on the mountain every morning. The facilities are great, nice buffet breakfast each morning and the restuarant and bar serve great food and make for a nice place to relax at the end of a long day of skiing.
Featuring a wellness center with a sauna and a hot tub, this hotel is set in the heart of the ski resort of Flaine in the Grand Massif. Very handy for the ski lifts. Fabulous food and wine (on tap!) Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Résidence Pierre & Vacances La Forêt is located between Geneva and Mont Blanc in heart of the Flaine resort in the Savoy region. WiFi is available in this residence. Last week of August 2019, 3 adults, 1 kid. We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment (104). Apartment is clean, spacious, comfortable. In the small kitchen, there was also a dishwasher. Good rather big fridge. There is a small but rather useful child play room next to reception. FYI, there is also laundromat in the building. More about Flaine. There is a fantastic bakery there! The prices in the local mini-markets are comparable to Dutch Albert-Heijn. So, for Dutch people, it is ok. If you want a better choice of products, a big supermarket, there is one, Super U, 40 mins drive downhill.
Offering self-catering apartments, Residence les Pleiades is located in Flaine just 492 feet away from the ski elevators. You can enjoy the mountain views from your private balcony. Apartment was in an excellent location and really well equipped. The apartment was huge for 2 people. Keys were left at the welcome office and ski passes had been organised and were ready for collection. Rama was really helpful and let us keep the apartment up until 4pm when we were due to travel back to the airport. Will definitely think about booking this accommodation again.
Often overlooked for the other big French ski resorts Flaine is excellent - great skiing with easy access from Geneva. The Grand Massif area is better in many ways than the Port d'Soliel. Can get busy at the weekends with local skiiers. There is sufficient apres if you want it, some very nice restaurants and the cinema is modern and very comfortable with a good selection of English language current releases on each week. Very compact village, you can easily walk everywhere, making use of the free lifts between the upper level of the village (Flaine Foret) and the lower (Flaine Forum).
Nice village in the French Alps. Lots of activities for kids and adults in the center of Flaine. The Désert de Platé limestone plate is great for trekking. You can see the Mont Blanc from Les Grandes Patières (cable car from Flaine) or drive about 1h to Chamonix and go up on Aiguille du midi to get a closer look.
For a summer stay, La Flaine is a great family station, especially for younger children. Solo or couples that like hiking too! Rather quiet and not much else to do other than typical mountain sports. They do not have a dedicated bike park though so you need to make the drive to Carroz. Since our stay at Pierre et Vacances was really fantastic, the lack of interesting things to do in the center can be overlooked. The settings is wonderful with treed areas in all hiking areas even on the ski pistes. I can imagine in winter this is an excellent spot for all levels of skiing.
I can understand why people say Flaine isn’t pretty but turn your back to the buildings and look at the mountains and it’s a stunningly beautiful place. The amount of different ski runs is great and the price of the ski pass seems very reasonable when you consider the number of lifts it gives you access to. Not much in the way of nightlife but I came here to ski not to party.
The skiing in Flaine is excellent. We also enjoyed skiing across to Les Carroz and Samoens but will have to do Morillon next year. La Cascade blue run down to Sixt was 14km and very scenic - worth doing once. But be warned, there is a queue for the bus at Sixt of 400+ skiers and insufficient buses for return. Flaine is a well placed resort for skiing and there are enough bars and restaurants for the evening... We enjoyed dinner at Chez Daniel, Brasserie Cimes and drinks at The White. The lift between Forum and Foret makes the whole resort accessible.
Slopes: Ideal for intermediates. Several good red runs. Blues generally a bit demanding for first week skiers. Only 2 decent black runs. Most disappointing thing is no bus covered by Grand Massif ski pass linking nearby villages such as Les Carroz. This meant beginners in our party could not get there as blue run over mountain too challenging for them. Off piste: 3-4 restaurants. Reasonable prices. Bars ok but not very lively.
Our stay was great in every way. Our first appartment we had noise issues with neighbors and the feont desk did not hesitate to move us and accomodate our needs. The facilities and appartment were clean and in good condition everything we needed was there and more. The swimming pool and commin areas were always clean and the staff went beyond and over answering any question we had and helping us if we needed directions or advice on hikes. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful family vacation. Would highly recommend!
Very handy for the ski lifts. Fabulous food and wine (on tap!) Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
