Marignier is a small Alpine town at the confluence of the Rivers Arve and Giffre, 36 km from Geneva, dominated by one of the area’s landmark mountains, Le Môle (1863m). Today, near the A40 autoroute and on the railway, it remains ideally situated for easy access to Annecy, Geneva and all the resorts of the northern Alps.
The easy and rapid commute to Geneva make it an especially popular place of residence for people working over the border. The property is set amid the surrounding picturesque countryside, which is a paradise for walkers and cyclists, and where vines are also cultivated. This is an ideal home for those who work in Geneva, or who want to live in the Alps and enjoy skiing variety without being in a resort. House prices here are significantly lower than in the major Alpine resorts nearby.
Le Grand Massif Ski Area
The Grand Massif ski region incorporates the ski resorts of Morillon, Samoeons, Flaine, Clusaz, Sixt and Les Carroz.
The Samoëns ski area offers a varied playground accessible to all. For expert skiers there are black and red pistes at the top of the resort and a vast off-piste area to indulge your enthusiasm. Beginners will improve on the lower, more gentle blue and green slopes which were entirely re-designed in 2003. Small children are welcomed at the children's ski area (jardin d´enfants) at the top of the Grand Massif Express cable car.
At 2 500 m, the summit of the Grandes Platières... A breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Mont Blanc seems to be just a couple of steps away, so impressive is its presence. The Désert de Platé, a vast snowy territory with a unique geological curiosity; a genuine stone glacier over 40 million years old!
Flaine offers wide open spaces with 140 km of pistes of all levels, marked and made safe. Just a few oases where you can eat and drink punctuate the landscape which is otherwise an untouched natural space.

Among the 72 pistes of the Grand Massif, Marvel, the beautiful green run is a must for those who wish to combine the pleasure of skiing with the discovery of local fauna, as explained on the information boards along the edge of the piste. It even has a local hero… Did you know that Morillon is the home of Antoine Dénériaz, the 2006 Olympic downhill champion ?
