An AUTUMN WEEKEND en famille in VALLORCINE (Résidence & Spa Vallorcine)

Vallorcine – 🐻 la Vallée des Ours (latin name: Vallis Ursina) – located just 16km north of Chamonix, is an authentic mountain village with a unique history; its relative isolation for centuries, its proximity to🇨🇭 Switzerland, and its Walser history distinguish it from the parallel history of the Chamonix Valley.
