Flaine ski resort
Flaine is a family-friendly ski resort built at the bottom of a large glacial cirque in the late 1960s.
It has a car-free village centre featuring a large sculpture by Picasso and other artworks.
While its modern concrete buildings aren’t as charming as more traditional resorts, it has magnificent scenery and excellent skiing.
