Part of the Grand Massif ski fields, Les Carroz is a beautiful traditional Alpine village, famous for its excellent family facilities and easy access. As well as skiing, Les Carroz is a great base to try other Alpine sports, and its less than an hour by car from Geneva. With a wide range of accommodation to choose from the best places to stay in Les Carroz vary from small apartments to luxury chalets and hotels.
There are around 265kms of piste in the Grand Massif region, most of it north facing, so the snow tends to last quite well. And there are a number of snow cannons to ensure there's snow to begin with. With that much ground, there's plenty of choice for skiers of all levels. And there's a shuttle bus stopping at a number of spots in Les Carroz which take you right to the chair lift which accesses the Grand Massif.
If you fancy a spot of scenic skiing there are some nice woodland runs right above the village. Or you could just relax in one of the little village cafes scattered around the main square, and watch everyone else hard at it. Non skiers can also try ice skating, dog sledding, ice climbing, a night-time luge? or maybe even a hot air balloon flight?
Les Carroz is one of the area's five main resorts, the others being Flaine, Samoëns, Morillon and Sixt. Samoëns especially makes a nice change if you're looking for varied apres ski, its pedestrianised centre is full of little gourmet shops selling mountain hams, local pate and cheese and of course all sorts of wonderful bread and pastry creations. There are also some excellent old bric-a-brac shops selling all sorts of old Alpine treasures.
A lovely wooden chalet with spectacular valley views and contemporary chic interiors. Rooms and suites have white washed walls, large bathrooms, and private balconies. Delicious food, in-room treatments, cosy fireplaces. Family friendly too.
