Flaine is a modern resort, surrounded by pine trees and is centrally located in the ski resort. In the centre of this village you'll mainly find large apartment complexes, built in the 70's. The centre is completely pedestrianized and has much to offer, in terms of both skiing and après-skiing! Of the more than 260 km of slopes the majority is located around Flaine. One of Europe's biggest snow parks is located in Flaine, which makes this a paradise for snowboarders.
Flaine is busy with the construction and development of new accommodations that satisfy the wishes of people looking for a more "luxurious" experience. For example, a new residence has been completed in 2008: Les Terrasses d'Eos, at only 500 meters from the centre and directly on the slopes. Also, a few years ago a new chalet in Le Hameau de Flaine has been completed.
This part of Flaine is the highest part of the resort, situated at an altitude of 1800 meters and has a spectacular view over the area. Hameau de Flaine consists of chalets and chalet-apartments, built in Scandinavian style and has a few shops and restaurants and regularly a bus shuttle will depart to the slopes. Experienced skiers can also reach the ski area by ski but to return to Hameau de Flaine, you need to take the shuttle bus.
The other quarters Flaine Foret, Flaine Foru and Flaine Front Neige offer direct access to the slopes and ski lifts.
