Accommodation Guide

As you might know, Avoriaz is a resort which is up-and-coming, so as such, whilst there are not a huge amount of hotels within the resort which can accommodate you, there are a wide range of types of accommodation to consider, as well as those offered in the nearest town of Morzine. As the pistes span so far and you can ski right down to the villages, more and more people are looking at options that are a little further out of Avoriaz and represent better value.  Here is a run-down of your options:

HOTELS:

Avoriaz was developed in the 1960s and as such it's wise to be aware that many buildings are still to be given face-lifts and are of varying quality, so do research facilities. As the resort is mid-range price wise, there are no 5 star establishments in the ski village, but there are a selection of hotels from 2 star, starting at around 40 Euros a night, with 4 star hotels at the hundred Euro mark. For independent reviews, remember to check review sites first before committing. If you are searching online, remember there are 650km of pistes, so you could easily search within 5 miles of the village.

HOSTELS:

If you’re a young person travelling on a budget, there is a hostel nearby in Morzine, conveniently located in the town centre, which has 76 beds and facilities, plus space for parking and cycles. If you are in a camper van, or motor home you will not be able to bring vehicles into the resort.

CHALET OR HOLIDAY APARTMENT:

There are an abundance of these in the village. There exist options of either family-run chalets which often provide catering, as well as the added advantage of English-speakers and local knowledge. Or, you may choose to rent a private apartment which comes with self-catering options. Do bear in mind, that many apartments in Avoriaz are designed to be ski-in, ski-out, so if you are travelling with children you might want to consider the logistics of bringing supplies back to your chalet. There are some newer build public chalets available accommodating between 10-20 people and these are often supplied with crèche facilities, ski rooms, sauna and hot tub, as well as the little things that make your stay more comfortable such as tea and coffee machines. Wi-fi may also be a consideration.
