About Vallorcine

Vallorcine is the last village in the Chamonix Valley, just before you get to the Swiss border. It is composed of traditional stone houses and large old farms but also has some modern apartments. There is a primary school, a library, a tourist office, a church, a small grocery store and some great places to eat and drink (Le Café Comptoir is one of the best restaurants in the whole Valley). The peaceful village has direct access to the Balme/Le Tour ski area, there is a cross country ski area and in the summer there are plenty of hiking and biking trails to explore. Property prices here are generally lower than anywhere else in the valley, which makes great potential for capital growth.

What is also unique about this exciting area is it’s proximity to the piste and telecabine. A new chair-lift from Vallorcine to Le Tour has truly introduced Vallorcine to the rest of the Valley. It has also helped by adding an extra 4 or 5 runs, not to mention the off piste opportunities. There is an idyllic off piste run through the trees right down to the train station at Vallorcine. Vallorcine has a few nice bars and restaurants near the station, which are perfect for an aprés-ski drink or dinner.
