Thollon is the perfect place for winter and summer holidays.
In the winter it's an ideal location for family skiing with the telecabine/ski-lift just a few minutes’ walk away. There's a good combination of easy and difficult runs and an excellent ESF ski school with English speaking instructors, plus a creche for babies and small kids. In fresh snow the off-piste skiing is great.
For further variety, neighbouring Bernex is a 15 minute drive away with a good variety of skiing including several black runs. The largest ski area in Europe, the Portes de Soleil, is 45/60 minutes away, with the resorts of Avoriax, Chatel, Morzine etc. In the other direction is Verbier and other Swiss resorts.
In summer, the hiking in Thollon is fantastic with stunning views and numerous routes. Thollon is also renowned for mountain biking and hang-gliding. There is great lake swimming in Bernex, plus a wonderful pool and lake swimming complex on Lake Geneva in the beautiful town of Evian (15 mins drive). Other outings include a ferry across the lake to visit the Swiss town of Lausanne, spa baths and a water sports centre.
