Flaine is a purpose built resort that has been popular for a long time but in recent years has benefitted from a lot of investment. There are now many accommodation options including some great new developments with fantastic facilities. It sits in a beautiful bowl and some of the best views of Mont Blanc can be found there. As part of the Grand Massif ski area there are 256 km of pistes that include the linked resorts of Les Carroz and Samoens. With a short transfer time and spectacular snow record it is one to consider.
