Flaine Resort & Transfer Guide

The central ski resort of the famous ski area in French Alps – Flaine – forces the heart to beat faster not only for the funs of winter sports. This untypical resort lies in the heart of Le Grand Massif ski area, and it also conquers the admirers of architecture and art. The secret hides in the fact that the skiing town was designed in 1960-s by the creators of the Pompidou Center Eric and Sylvie Boisson as a single architectural ensemble. Their main aim was to integrate the best modern ski base into the surrounding nature. And for accomplishing of that task, the well-known architect in the style of the Bauhaus, Marcel Breuer, proceeded with full responsibility. And as a result we have there the optimal combination of three parts of the city, located at different height levels, in harmony with the landscape of the high mountain valley. You sure have to see it!

Along with the architectural sights, the center of the Flaine ski resort, with no cars at all, also offers real masterpiece of art in the form of sculptures by Picasso and Vasarely, as well as the Center d'Art, opened in 1969 - the center of contemporary art. The perfect harmony between modern comfort and nature is also reflected in everything related to winter sports. At an altitude of 1600m, Flaine offers direct access to a large selection of local trails and to the entire ski area of ​​Le Grand Massif, including the panorama of Mont Blanc.
