For a more responsible holiday.

The winter holidays are an opportunity to take a break and enjoy nature. Away from the daily grind, we take the time to contemplate the snow-covered peaks, breathe the pure mountain air and enjoy the serenity of these white expanses as far as the eye can see. 

To take advantage of all the attractions of the mountains while respecting them, many players are committed: no cars in the town centre, electric shuttles, implementation of the Flocon Vert label, environmentally friendly residences, etc. This year, Pierre & Vacances is even offering Sunday-to-Sunday stays in a selection of residences. Avoid the crowds on arrival and the congested transport, enjoy the slopes in peace and quiet on Saturdays… Going on a different holiday has everything to offer!

Holidaymakers can also contribute to limiting the impact through a number of actions, first and foremost the choice of means of transport which, according to Ademe, represents 57% of the greenhouse gas emissions generated by winter sports tourism.

With 61 residences in the French mountains – 52 of which are accessible by train – let’s take a closer look at a selection of Pierre & Vacances destinations!

Méribel – Pierre & Vacances premium residence L’Hévana*****

Located only 4 hours by train from Paris and 3 hours from Lyon, Méribel has managed to preserve all its charm, preserving in its five hamlets the harmonious and authentic architecture of its traditional chalets made of blonde wood, local stone, slate and slate. Designed to blend in with the existing environment, the premium residence L’Hévana***** is built with certified wood from sustainably managed forests. Its bioclimatic architecture favours western, southern and eastern orientations. The compact buildings are insulated from the outside with mineral wool and fitted with high-performance glazing. Consumption has also been optimised: heat recovery system, intelligent consumption management, room thermostat, etc. Finally, a wood-fired boiler covers 100% of the residence’s heating and domestic water needs.

Avoriaz 1800 – Résidence Pierre & Vacances premium L’Amara*****

Avoriaz 1800 is a very special resort for Pierre & Vacances as it is where it all began in 1967. Born of an ecological challenge before its time, Avoriaz 1800 is easily accessible from the stations of Cluses, Thonon-les-Bains or Bellegarde-Sur-Valserine. In an entirely pedestrian environment where sledges replace cars, L’Amara premium residence***** guarantees a ski in/ski out experience. Facing south, to let the light into its spacious flats, the residence offers a breathtaking view of the Morzine Valley. Nestled at the foot of a cliff and surrounded by mountains and forests, the residence, which has been awarded the “Clef Verte” label, is completely integrated into the Portes du Soleil ski area.

Arc 1950 – Résidence Pierre & Vacances premium Le Village*****

It meets the resort’s ambition to offer car-free and 100% pedestrian journeys from its point of departure. A unique concept in Europe, Le Village houses 8 5-star residences with the Green Key label. Each of the 8 buildings in the village has a different style while preserving the mountain spirit. Wood and warm colours add an intimate touch.

Chamonix – Residence Pierre & Vacances premium La Ginabelle****

Located 5h30 from Paris by train, Chamonix, the capital of mountaineering, is the favourite resort for mountain lovers. A true natural jewel, this area with its exceptional scenery deserves its place among the French “green” resorts. In 2013, the Chamonix Valley, which includes the municipalities of Chamonix, Vallorcine, Les Houches, Argentière and Servoz, was awarded the Flocon Vert label in recognition of its desire to protect the environment as best it can, in particular by adopting a climate plan focusing on four areas: transport, waste management, organisation of tourist activities and discussions on ecological housing. The premium residence La Ginabelle**** has been awarded the Green Key label and blends harmoniously into the resort’s landscape with its authentic flats decorated in typical mountain style. The residence also benefits from an exceptional panorama of the Mont-Blanc massif, a UNESCO World Heritage site. 
1 557 € per week from 04/02/2023 to 11/02/2023 in a 4 person flat

Flaine – Pierre & Vacances premium residence Les Terrasses d’Eos*****

Flaine is a mythical resort in the Alps, located on the Grand Massif between Chamonix Mont-Blanc and Geneva. Its proximity to the TGV stations of Cluses, Annemasse and Geneva make it a privileged and easily accessible place. Most of the resort is pedestrianised and benefits from exceptional snow conditions. Like Avoriaz, Flaine was one of the first ski resorts in France to combine respect for the environment, architecture and town planning in an exceptional mountain setting. Les Terrasses d’Eos***** is a premium residence with a Green Key label, offering a ski in/ski out experience in the heart of a spruce forest. The flats have all been completely renovated this summer! Spacious and bright, they have a balcony or terrace to enjoy the panorama.
