La Grande Terche is one of those places where you still get the feeling you are in France and not in a purpose-built resort overtaken by package holidays. Undoubtedly, this region is best known for the excellent skiing but that is not all that it has to offer.
The Portes du Soleil area of the French and Swiss Alps offer 650km of linked skiing in what is one of the largest linked ski domains in the World. The towns
that make up the domain encompass all styles from high altitude Avoriaz through to typical Savoyard villages such as St Jean d'Aulps.
La Grande Terche has been described in skiing literature as one of the hidden gems away from the crowds and the package tour holidays. All of the accommodation is privately owned giving the resort a community feeling with a French atmosphere. On the doorstep of our apartment you have access to some 35km of skiing along the Espace Roc d'Enfer including one of the longest routes through the forested valley, the Circuit Roc d'Enfer. The skiing caters for everyone from beginners through to those who want more of a challenge, the local ESF ski school is a one minute walk from the apartment next to the telecabine. The school caters for individuals through to groups for beginners and those wanting to brush up on technique.
The town of Morzine, its links to Avoriaz and the rest of the Portes du Soleil, is five minutes drive away and easily accessible. During the winter there is a reliable network of ski buses from La Grande Terche.
La Grande Terche is a self-contained resort offering everything you need for your stay including excellent bars and restuarants, a choice of ski equipment hire and a supermarket for all the necessities. There are events throughout the season such as carnivals, festivals, ski rescue demonstrations etc.
