Avoriaz has a commanding position on a Morzine Valley plateau and its original use was for summer grazing land for the cattle of a local farming family. However, the Hauts Forts and Chavanette peaks were also a playground for local lad Jean Vuarnet, who became an Olympic gold medallist in 1960. By the time Vuarnet returned to his home town after his triumph, he was harbouring a burning desire to build a futureproof ski resort in his childhood stomping ground.
Partnering with tourism guru Gerard Bremond and a team of visionary architects, Vuarnet dedicated the next few years to creating a ski resort that was eco-friendly and embraced architecture that blended with the natural surroundings rather than borrowing too heavily from the pre-existing chalet blueprint, with pathways, walkways and lifts that connect guests naturally and effortlessly to world-class pistes for all abilities, as well as shops, cafes, restaurants and all other amenities. When Avoriaz opened up to the public in the mid-60s, it was immediately hailed for its blend of practicality and creativity and soon became the place to be seen for glam celebs from France and beyond.
Because it’s purpose-built for your pleasure by visionaries who were passionate about achieving a strong yet smooth symbiosis between the natural world, modern technology, and contemporary architecture, Avoriaz is a ski resort that still feels dynamic and deliciously different.
With perfectly-groomed corduroy to suit skiers and snowboarders of all levels, snow-parks and off-piste areas the freestylers and freeriders adore, lively apres-ski, superb ski schools and kids entertainment and facilities, Avoriaz is a ski resort that really has it all.
When you want the perfect pad that helps you make the most of this sublime snowsports destination, Erna Low always delivers!
Ski chalets in Avoriaz
Despite the classic architectural style being rejected by Jean Vuarnet and the masterminds behind this ground-breaking resort, you’ll still find ski chalets in Avoriaz, or at the very least, chalet-style accommodation.
Indeed, rather than being entirely new and unique, some of the original resort buildings are subversions of the chalet, throwing together familiar materials like wood and stone with original lines and silhouettes in novel ways that look ravishingly retro-futuristic.
And although the expansion of the resort has been largely respectful of its original manifesto, you’ll now see a few more mainstream chalet-apartment complexes complete with the a-frame roofs and carved balconies which are known and loved the world over. Let’s take a look at some of the best Avoriaz ski chalet accommodation available:
- Antarès is a chalet-style Avoriaz accommodation option with authentic wooden exterior cladding and a roof that’s quite literally a twist on the original a-frame design. These spacious, well-designed apartments are available in several different layouts that sleep between four and seven guests, some of which have a separate bedroom and other which feature an open-plan studio design. The décor is comfortable and practical, many apartments have terrific scenic views and home comforts like Wi-Fi and well-equipped kitchenettes are standard. This ski-in/ski-out residence allows you to maximise your time on the slopes, you can reach the resort centre and all it’s shopping and après attractions via the swift lift and another nearly attraction for kids of all ages is the expansive Aquariaz water park. Pets are allowed here by prior arrangements (and provided you have secured the necessary clearance) while grocery kits and mid-stay housekeeping are available as optional extras. An innovative remix of the time-served chalet design, Antarès encapsulates the spirit of innovation and inspiration that characterises Avoriaz ̶ we’re sure that a stay here will leave you wondering when you can come back for more.
