Leave your prints in the snow as you try Nordic walking, taking in views of Mont Blanc.If you prefer to experience the mountain other than on skis, enjoy a trekking programme from Monday to Friday.Mostly on snowshoes, and sometimes with other disciplines such as nordic walking or hiking, these treks are supervised by mountain guides who will take you to areas away from the ski slopes.

Snowboard
From the cosy charm of your Savoyard retreat, you haven't got far to go to reach the pistes. Perfectly blended into this white, larch-filled landscape, your accommodation makes a great starting point for adventure.

Entertainment
Once the ski lifts are finished dancing up and down the mountain, come inside to get warm and cosy. Meet in the Le Roc bar to sip a cocktail and listen to live music. Then enjoy a magical show from your talented G.O®s. Continue the festivities as you dance the night away.


Must-Try Experiences

Paradise for relaxed skiing
For those who prefer calm and relaxed skiing, Valmorel is the perfect gentle resort with more than 25 green runs and 40 blue runs. At the foot of the resort, exclusive Club Med areas welcome children and beginner adults. The resort is home to the Pirates play areas, specially designed for the youngest. Snowpark or pirates' route, your children can ski between gates and turnstiles or hurtle around turns and banked bends with whoops of joy. For the older children, nothing beats a trip at their own pace in the Evolution areas or lower down between the fir trees!

The Col de la Madeleine
Want to push your limits, to cross mountains ? Ski on the Col de la Madeleine at 1993 m above sea level (blue run), mythical crossing point between the Tarentaise and Maurienne valleys. From this pass in the heart of Savoy, a spectacular panorama of Mont Blanc, the Aiguilles d'Arves and the Etendard glacier emerges. Then take in the runs of this grandiose space and its variety of landscapes between fir trees and high mountains.

Savoyard lifestyle
Head to the resort located a few minutes away and discover the charming village of Valmorel. Cross the Bourg, a stall-lined pedestrian hamlet, and indulge yourself in its cosy atmosphere. Over your head, garlands of lights illuminate the dark wood facades of the cottages. Warm up with a glass of mulled wine (1) or alpine herbal tea, accompanied by a Beaufort sausage.(1) Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health.

Nature trip
The hiking club is a fabulous way to discover the large region and its true and wild natural areas. On snowshoes, Nordic walking or hiking, follow your passionate guide! A native of the valley, your guide will tell you about the secrets of Savoy, the life of alpine pastures and the sound of cowbells. Search out ancestral farms along the wooded slopes of the mountain, or follow in the footsteps of local wildlife.

A gourmet experience at La Laiterie
Walk through the doors of the Gourmet Lounge La Laiterie, whose atmosphere is inspired by the many farms still in operation in the valley, and enter a cosy atmosphere perfect for sharing with the family. Those who like a lazy morning can savour a white cheese made with regional blueberries, and ski enthusiasts can sit down later to enjoy a mountain burger. Table service of course! Authentic milk pots and wooden tables await you on this terrace perched between the lauze stone roofs.

Please Note: Some services are at extra cost. We advise you to pre-book these services. They may also be purchased on site at the start of your holiday.

This all inclusive holiday to Club Med Valmorel in Valmorel, France departs Sunday 15th December 2024, for a 7 night stay on a "all inclusive" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 2024 was between €1 and €3 per person, per night.

This mignonne ski station can be found hidden away in the heart of the Tarentaise mountains - just over the hills of the 3 Valleys in the beautiful French Alps. Only about 90km from its closest serving airport, you can fly into Chambéry for the speediest access.

The good people of this Alpine village have designed a debutant area dedicated to new skiers who can learn and progress at their own pace without the added worry of speedier skiers interrupting carefully controlled snow ploughs. Some lovely green and blue runs in the ‘la Belle’ area offer long, tree-lined trails. On the Col de la Madeleine, intermediates can find a web of red and blue runs. Take the ski lift to the other side of the mountain with the Grand Domaine ski pass for access to further reds at Sain...
The calm of this doll-sized resort is broken at night by the Sound pub and club, very popular with the 20 somethings. Lovers of a cheesy night of dance music, themed parties and spirits, this cheese has never smelt so good. The perfect venue if you’re looking for a mad one: party until 5 am when the club closes, then grab a freshly baked morning croissant from the boulangerie on your winter walk home. For a Latino twist on an Alpine bar, salsa your way over to the lively Jimbo Lolo for some Tex Mex, Tequila and...

"Everything taken care of beautifully"

Richard, London
5/ out of 5
From the relaxed and efficient check-in through to boot/ski fitting and our first gentle slide down the cruisey blue piste which runs right down the full length of the hotel and on into the village, everything about our trip to Valmorel was slick and aggro-free. I wasn't sure an all inclusive Club Med style of ski holiday would be my bag, but I'm glad I listened to Alison as Sno who had tested out the one in Val d'Isere the year before and explained the vibe perfectly - it was a really great place to stay. The location down the side of the piste makes the whole place ski in / ski out and means its also easy to pop back for a drink or snack whenever you fancy a break from the skiing. There were lots of couples and friends staying but I think this place really comes into its own for families, with their own private nursery slope with magic carpet ski travelator which lets the children learn without feeling nervous... and free childcare/ski school, plus lift pass and drinks etc included mean you can pay once for your family ski holiday and then know everything else is sorted (except rental, if you don't have your own skis/boots). The skiing in Valmorel seemed to be maybe 80% blues and the rest red (I spotted only 2 black runs in the whole place but could have missed some). Being slopeside is great for mum and dad who know the pain of carrying kids skis around for them. I've seen no better place to take a family to learn to ski - if you want your kids to love skiing/snowboarding, this is the place to choose. The food selection is simply vast. The options are diverse and the quality of a very high standard. The self-serve approach means you're never left complaining about portion sizes after a big day on the slopes. We all put weight on despite exercising vigorously. The free bar is a little dangerous, but after all, you are on holiday! Unlike usual "inclusive" holidays, the free bar isn't stocked with the usual fare of cheap "stubbies" and awful wine - its stocked with all the sorts of premium drinks that you'd choose for yourself in a good bar. The entertainment was an unexpected surprise and I didn't expect to be up "throwing shapes" but perhaps that's a side effect of the free bar. The trapeze act (yes, right there in the bar) was a bit random but superb - you don't get that with the mass market likes of Crystal Ski! I thought the headline price seemed a bit above the average hotel or catered chalet holiday, but when you deduct a couple of hundred for the lift pass (included in this holiday when we went) and another few for the whole week of ski school / childcare (also included when we visited) and then add free meals and drinks (what do you normally spend snacking&drinking during a week in a ski resort?!) then this is actually a VERY cheap ski holiday. Especially when you factor in the high level of quality control that's not evident in normal "all inclusive" ski packages. Apart from skis/boots, you don't have to spend a single euro all week. Couples will like the boutique feel of the rooms, groups will love the ease of catering/meeting up/varied entertainment, single skiers will love the convivial atmosphere, and families will love the convenience/clockwork organisation/fully inclusive food and drink and included ski school/childcare plus slopeside location.

"Best for young families"

S. I.
4/ out of 5
We had a good week here. It’s worth emphasizing that the hotel is aimed more towards families with young children and it would be absolutely wonderful for that specific market. It’s exactly the type of holiday I would have looked for when my children were younger – it would have been perfect as it definitely caters to those age groups. This is mainly with regard to how they market and run the ski lessons etc., they don’t cater for older children who don’t need lessons which is frustrating when you’ve already paid for them in the overall holiday cost. Also the noise levels might put off older children. The people were really friendly and the service and standards were good. The location is excellent and the services to and from the place were excellent. You can ski in/out from the front which isn’t so good for beginners. That might put some people off, however I didn’t see a problem as you can just get the bus. Another thing to note is that it takes about half an hour to get over to where the lessons are, so if you have a 2 hour lesson, you spend half of that travelling which an adult learner might find annoying. There are things laid on for non-skiers like walking and the hotel has facilities like a sauna and a pool.

"Venturing to Valmorel: A soft ski shuffle as Club Med slips into a calm corner of the Alps"

Chris Leadbeater, Daily Mail Travel
4/ out of 5
"...The new Club Med hotel attempts to straddle two realms, pitching itself largely at the family market, but also proffering a five-star 'luxury space' (called 'Le Lodge') that attempts to cater for a clientele with more expensive tastes. Here, 25 upper-floor suites stare across at the distinctive summit of Mont Blanc, and share their own exclusive lounge (which also enjoys a view onto Western Europe's tallest mountain). Most of the accommodation, however, slots into the four-star bracket – a mixture of en-suite Club rooms and slightly larger Deluxe rooms. Each delivers a comfortable, modern environment (with giant flat-screen TVs), but stops short of dramatic boutique flourishes – as you might expect of a hotel that expects its paying guests to turn up with kids in tow. Such is the Club Med ethos – swish family escapes, with everything included. This plays out most obviously in Le Celeste and Les Cerfs, the two main restaurants, where a vast feast is laid out three times each day – a grand array of roast meats, salads, pasta dishes, cheeses and deserts arranged in help-yourself fashion. And here, of course, is the main draw-back of an all-inclusive holiday – the reliance on the same source of food for every meal across an entire week. But there seems to be enough variety in these two options to stave off culinary boredom – and for those who feel the need for a change of scenery, La Laiterie, a gourmet eatery, proffers a la carte dining (by reservation) on the second floor. There are other nice touches that are designed to fill the time between skiing and eating: a series of children's club rooms that run the full range from ages 4 to 17 (the oldest group neatly skewered by a den that looks like a night-club, complete with DJ decks as well as the inevitable video consoles); a spa that, at first glance, looks a trifle under-sized, but comes with 12 'cabins' for apres-ski massages; an outdoor ice-rink that, with its unusual synthetic surface, is theoretically usable all year round; the ski room, where the numbers on the lockers correspond to the rooms, and answer to the same key that opens your door. However, it is the ski room's proximity to the pistes – its entrance swings directly onto the last curve of the main run home, making for ski-in-ski-out ease-of-access – that is the hotel's key selling point...."

"Magic views at Club Valmorel"

Sarah Nicholson, The Daily Telegraph
4/ out of 5
Club Med Valmorel is described as the company's "flagship upscale snow resort" and can accommodate 1000 guests in 446 suites that sit under the same roof as the three restaurants and four dining rooms, the many lounges and bars, day spa, ski-hire complex, children's areas and library so visitors need venture outside only to hit the slopes. The mountain retreat is unique because it's the first of the group's European resorts to offer a full collection of children's clubs catering to every age from babies to teenagers, and it features 4-trident rooms and 5-trident suites in the same spot as a handful of luxury chalets. Club Med uses the trident system to class comfort levels, with the 5-trident suites designed for families and set on an exclusive floor the same standard as the accommodation in a 5-star hotel. I stayed in a deluxe room with a balcony, a sitting area with lounge, a built-in desk, lots of deep drawers to store my bulky ski gear, a walk-in robe with safe, free wi-fi and in-house movies, and an innovative walk-through bathroom all decorated with the wood and stone that defines the style of the region. And my room had that view, the dramatic vista that revealed itself with the sunrise on my first memorable morning in the French Alps.
