Flaine is a resort very popular with families.There is a cinema with films showing in English and also a large auditorium which holds shows directed towards children most weeks. I have had apartments in Flaine for over 20 years and know the resort like the back of my hand .More than not I will be on hand to give the benefit of
my experience and tell you of places only the locals know. I can also put you in touch with English speaking ski instructors and advise the best places to hire equipment and the best places to ski/snowboard. If you require a husky or skidoo expedition I can tell you where ,when and how .
Rental is Saturday to Saturday but this may be negotiable particularly in low season.
