Hi All,
I've been to the 3 valleys many times before and love the area, previously we have taken a package holiday. This year we are looking at renting an apartment and driving down, I had assumed that all parking would be in designated car parks like the centre of VT. However all of the apartment listings imply that there is ample parking on the roads around the apartments, this seems to be confirmed by the maps of the resort.
Just wondered if anyone has experience of parking in Mottaret and can confirm there is plenty of available parking or is it worth booking underground parking?

It's been a while but I don't think much has changed; there is plenty of on-street parking BUT it does depend when you're going. Off-peak weeks should be fine but Feb half-term it'll be rammed; and possibly more so than usual, as it looks likely that more people will drive this season.

Worth noting that you will (obviously!) be parking at altitude so if you get lucky with the snow then you'll need to allow time for digging out on departure day, or even finding your car if parked above ground... :lol:

If it's not ridiculously expensive, underground can make life a lot easier.

Thanks for the reply, you raise some useful points. One of my main concerns is what to do if it snows, i.e. I have seen some postings on other forums suggesting the authorities will put a warning out the night before indicating you need to move your car for them to be able to clear the snow the following morning, not sure there would be anywhere to move to !
Suspect I will just pay for the underground parking.

Ah yes, the old "my car's been ploughed into a ravine" situation... best avoided! :lol:

I'm sure you can google, but there are a couple of sites with info here..

You may want to prebook if you can.
