"Valmorel la Belle", a traditional village in the heart of a well preserved nature
Located in the Tarentaise Valley, at the foot of the Cheval Noir mountain, with its highest peaks rising to 2,832 m, the Savoyard resort enjoys an exceptional natural setting. Nestled on the edge of the forest, Les Avanchers-Valmorel offers a superb view of the Lauzière massif. Considered one of the most beautiful resorts in the Alps, it owes its authentic charm to its masterful and assertive architecture. Designed in 1976 by the architect Michel Besançon, who aimed to recreate a village atmosphere, the resort has managed to preserve its architectural harmony. No large concrete structures or buildings have been placed in the resort, which could affect the beauty of the landscape. Ski lifts have been carefully positioned and sized to preserve this exceptional natural setting.
The village of Les Avanchers-Valmorel has direct access to the Grand Domaine (1450 m - 2550 m). Its 165 km of slopes will delight not only beginners but also experts in snow sports. The resort offers a wide range of activities all year round, for the greatest pleasure of families. Nordic walking, dog sledding, tobogganing, igloo building, ski touring, go-karting, fat biking, snowmobiling, paragliding, mountain biking, trail running, tyrolean traverse, indoor golf, introduction to laser rifle biathlon, archery, canyoning... No doubt that all ages will (re)discover the pleasures of the mountains during their stay in Les Avanchers-Valmorel.
One of the most distinctive features of the resort is the way it gets around. Its main street, where nearly 80% of the shops are located, is entirely pedestrianised. Dynamic and family-oriented (Family Plus label), this typical village with houses inspired by the Sardinian-Piedmontese style is accessible by walk... or by ski!
Akoya residence, a new MGM creation
Les Avanchers-Valmorel, the home of the La Grange des Fées and Anitéa residences, is a popular destination for the Haute-Savoie-based developer. This year MGM is renewing its connection to the town with the launch of a new top-of-the-range development: Résidence Akoya. Located at the entrance of the resort, a stone's throw from the main pedestrian street and local shops, the MGM development will enjoy an ideal location. Its architecture, using noble and natural materials, directly inspired by the mountains, will blend elegantly into the preserved setting of Les Avanchers-Valmorel. Its 29 luxury flats, from 40 to 120 m2, equipped, furnished and decorated with great care, will be spacious, warm and friendly for future buyers. Keys to the flats will be handed over to new owners in 2024.
