In the southeast of France and the northwest of Italy you will find the much-discussed region of Savoie, one of the largest winter sports areas in the world. In the region are authentic winter sports villages and several smaller ski areas. Dormio Resort Les Portes du Grand Massif, just above Chamonix, is the perfect base for a skiing holiday in Savoie.
The Savoie is a ski resort for both experienced skiers and beginners. In Aillons-Margeriaz you will find the two steepest slopes in France. These are meant for very experienced skiers. There are also less steep slopes, ideal for beginners to get acquainted with the long slats. For those who do not like skiing at all, there are plenty of cross-country skiing and hiking opportunities. Savoie is an ideal place to spend a fantastic ski holiday.
In Savoie it is mostly ski-in and ski-out. Have a quick breakfast and then out the door. Put your snowboard or skis on and then go immediately on the slopes for the start of a new day full of experiences in the snow. At the end of the day, or perhaps in between for lunch, you can ski back to your own chalet or apartment. In areas like Les Trois Vallées, Paradiski and Espace Killy you do not have to ski on the same slope for a day and you can make great trips. Dormio Resort Les Portes Du Grand Massif is also located right next to the ski lift, so you can also enjoy ski-in and ski-out.
The Savoie is an ideal place to enjoy a beautiful environment for both a natural and cozy ski holiday. The attractive areas have remained cozy and authentic. Think of Arêches - Beaufort, Galibier Thabor and Val Cenis. Savoie also lends itself perfectly for a holiday with the whole family. In the region you will also find authentic winter sports villages and smaller ski areas.
The Savoie is part of the Rhône-Alpes region and is easily accessible via Switzerland or France. The area also borders Italy, making it ideal for a city trip. Some routes are constructed from winding mountain roads, which can provide a longer journey time. You can also reach the Savoie by bus. The area is known for its good accessibility and parking options.
