The Rhone/French Alps region

Thollon Les Memises is in the beautiful, mountainous Haute Savoie region. Known as Balcon du Leman owing to its position overlooking Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), it enjoys a Mediterranean micro-climate.

Because of its close proximity to the lake shore and the Swiss border it provides access to a spectacular area which is easy to explore by car, bike, boat, train and on foot.

Thollon les Memises

Thollon Les Memises, is a charming and friendly village with plenty for the family and outdoor enthusiasts to do: walking, rambling, cycling, horse-riding, paragliding in summer; skiing, snow-boarding, sledging in winter. The ski lift is only 75 metres from the flat and, at the end of a day on the pistes, you can ski back down to the apartment building. Also available are tennis and ping-pong. From the village, you can take challenging walks in the mountains as well as more leisurely strolls in the immediate vicinity, with eye-catching views of the lake.

It is within easy reach of the vast Porte du Soleil region, the largest skiing area in France. Chatel and Morzine are less than 50 minutes drive away.

It is only 15 minutes by car to the charming lakeside town of Evian, where you can take ferry trips to various locations on the lake such as Lausanne, home to the Olympic Village, or the beautiful, medieval village of Yvoire.

In a lovely setting on the water's edge is Evian's Centre Nautique with its swimming pools and water activities to suit all ages.

For other fun-packed days out, visit the Aquatic Activities Beach at Plage de la Beunaz near the neighbouring village of St Paul, or the Aqua Park in Les Bouveret , a short distance over the border in Switzerland.

More adventurous water-sports enthusiasts can test their skills at white-water rafting, canoeing and kayaking on the River Dranse.

During the holiday seasons there are organised weekly activities in Thollon: a market selling local produce and crafts, guided walks and visits to the local fromagerie, musical evenings and entertainment.

Unwind in the bars and restaurants which offer traditional savoyarde food.

"Great location for a holiday with the family"

We spent a week here during feb half term and were apprehensive as we had never been skiing at half term before and had never really heard about the resort. Our fears were allayed by the great advice given to us by the owners and the whole week surpassed our expectations. We are a family of 5 and the apartment was plenty big enough for us all. It was really well kitted out , clean and tidy with comfy beds and duvets,a home from home experience. Without doubt one of the best things was the location really close to the ski lift, lift pass shop, ski hire shops and eateries/bars/shops. The view over lake Geneva was truly magnificent and we made good use of the balcony to catch a few rays of sunshine. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend it.

"Good value, great location, what are you waiting for?"

Great 2 bed apartment, compact but well designed, well kitted out, my part was 6 and we all had enough room.
Thollon is a great non commercialised resort, friendly poeple (we always try our french out!) with great views of the lake.
Can also recommend Meda Sports Ski shop, L'Outa and St Nicolas restaurants
