At the foot of the Grand Vans lift, Le Panoramic has one of the best locations for getting up onto the slopes. This particular chairlift takes you up towards La Carroz, but if you’d rather head over to Les Grandes Platieres for views of the Mont Blanc, then the Grand Balacha lifts are your best bet and are only 4 minutes away. Beginners are catered for, too. Just outside the apartment building is the Bissac magic carpet which gives access to a range of green runs. When it comes to getting into town, you can take a leisurely 12-minute downhill walk towards Flaine Forum. If you don’t fancy the walk, then take the gondola down instead. In the Forum you’ll find a Sherpa Supermarket, ideal for stocking up on your food for the week.
With direct access to the slopes of Flaine Forêt, Le Panoramic is the place to stay for a good-quality, modern self-catering holiday in a spectacular mountain setting.
Every apartment in this large complex is decked out with wood and stone surfaces to give a homely, earthy feel, while the artwork dotted around the rooms echoes the snowy outdoor environment. As well as comfy beds and a social living area, each apartment is equipped with a kitchenette where you can prepare as many (or as few) meals as you like.
The Grand Vans lift is just outside, too, so you’ll just have to pop on your skis or board in the morning, slide over to the barriers and plop yourself down on the chair that’ll take you up to the 265km of runs in the Le Grand Massif ski area. Pedestrianised Flaine Forum – home to shops, restaurants and characteristic buildings – is close-by too, accessed by a gondola.
The hotel has so much more to offer than just convenience, though. Non-skiers and late risers can blow out some morning cobwebs with a few lengths in the hotel’s indoor pool, friends can congregate and chill in the communal TV area, and pampered pups can work away their ski legs with a post-ski massage or a session in the sauna.

While the village may not be brimming with Gallic charm, the skiing and facilities more than make up for it, a place much loved by powder hounds and families alike.
