Ski Resort of Flaine, 1750-2500m, Northern French Alps (Haute Savoie)
Flaine, located between Geneva and Chamonix Mont-Blanc, sits at the summit of the Grand Massif ski area, one of the largest ski areas in France with in excess of 265 Km of ski runs, with breathtaking views directly across to Mont-Blanc.
This delightful, centrally situated, apartment of 57 square metres has an extremely sunny, south-facing aspect, a sitting room, two bedrooms, a bathroom with separate toilet, and a compact well-equipped kitchen. There is no balcony.
The apartment also benefits from a private, secure ski-room and a cellar at the ground floor level.
The apartment is on the third floor of an elegant, eight-storey building designed by a master of the Bauhaus style, Marcel Breuer, well known for his work which includes the UNESCO Palace in Paris and the Whitney Museum in New York. It has a splendid panoramic view over the main square, the forum, and also over a fascinating collection of outdoor sculptures featuring works by Picasso, Dubuffet, Hanich, Vasarely and Nesjar.
Flaine is a functional “ski-in, ski-out” resort, and the apartment is within 100 metres of the slopes, giving immediate ski aux pieds access to the cable cars and ski lifts.
An indoor swimming pool, spar, cinema and shopping mall are also located close by.
In the summer there are very many activities that make the region so appealing throughout the year, which include trekking, glacier ice-climbing, paragliding, trail running, all terrain bicycling or just walking in the spring pastures.
There are regular flights to Geneva Airport and then on by bus to Flaine. Flights from London, Brussels and Amsterdam would each be approximately ninety minutes, followed by a two-hour bus shuttle journey to the resort. Flaine is also connected to the French TGV network.
