Valfréjus at a glance

One of the newest resorts in the Alps, established in 1983, Valfrejus was built on a skiing area called Arrondaz, which had been lift served since 1969. It's close to Modane, the Frejus tunnel to Italy and situated above the old village of Charmaix. As with all of the later generation purpose-built resorts, the architectural style is of a much higher standard than most of the better known areas which grew up in the sixties. Best suited to intermediates, standard purpose-built apres-ski fayre.
