Established in the 1960s as the brainchild of Olympic champion skier Jean Vuarnet, Avoriaz is a purpose build resort with tonnes of character. The wood-clad buildings have a striking appearance that set it apart from other destinations. Even more impressive is the 360° panorama of the Alps. Avoriaz is brilliantly located right in the centre of the Portes du Soleil ski area. Completely ski-in ski-out, a holiday in Avoriaz means you don't have to lug your equipment around and you can maximise time on the slopes...
Avoriaz is one of our favourite resorts to bring the family - thanks to a huge and central children's village, complete with a specialised snowboarding area, children can learn to ski and ride in a fun and safe environment. Avoriaz is one of the only resorts that has a Beginner Pass, letting you find your feet on easy terrain via 14 lifts without the expense of a full lift pass. Beginners-only piste Première Glisse gives you the chance to improve at your own pace, while Proclou and Q'monts are easy blues for cr...
Avoriaz has worked hard on it's apres game in the last few years, with the addition of a well-known apres go to 'La Folie Douce' for winter 2018.

"Spot on"

Rory Whitman, London
4/ out of 5
You get what you pay for and we went on a budget, so these are budget apartments. The holiday was spot on though! I loved Avoriaz. We could come out the front door, put on our boards and drift down to two different lifts. One went up to the right and one to the left of the valley. They could get quite busy in the mornings, but then once you were higher up it was fine. The apartments were just across the piste from the indoor-pool-come-lazy-river, so that was easy to get to and nice to go to after skiing. The apartments were fine, the only thing that was missing was a kettle. I keep finding this problem in France for some reason, they never seem to have kettles. We had to boil water in a pot. Check in was perfect, everything went well. There was a Sherpa supermarket over the road so we bought food there to self-cater, and we went out for a meal a few times. The prices were high but they were ok, the amount of food you got for your money was great. We found the places were busy, the reps recommended to us that we book a table in advance.
