Yes Limone for me also. We where just there the other week and it was really busy with tourist and really pretty. Also agree food was drink etc is cheap and good quality.

3 hrs can get you to some of the big ones like Verbier, Zermatt, Chamonix. 4 hrs can get you to Courchevel, Megeve, Val d'Isere, etc.

Hands down it is Limone. Price, food, cleanliness /quality of accommodation is superior . If you are going for a week, why not think about Val Gardena , Ortisei.

Montgenevre, 4 hours, on the Italian border (go via Italy, roads are better).

Hi

For your requirements I would recommend Limone across the border in Italy. The local French resorts just don't do pretty and character (for me at any rate!)

Just spent a weekend up there and for a ski resort it's even pretty in summer. A real rarity!

Hope that helps

I love Les Gets in the Portes du Soleil - although it isn't that high, so may depend on how good the snow is in the coming season.

But a lovely family resort, very pretty and unspoiled, with reasonable night life - not wild, but enough, especially with a 5 year old in tow!

There's good skiing locally, and it links in with more challenging stuff for those who want that - The Wall for the brave!
