Lullin - an idyllic Alpine village

When choosing a location for an Alpine holiday base, there are different types of people. There are those who seek the constant bustle of the big ski resorts, where the activity never stops and the nights are as hectic as the days. Then there are those who want to come home from a long day's skiing to peace and quiet, and surround themselves with the authentic atmosphere and beauty of a true Savoyard village in the mountains.

Access to great skiing, yet a tranquil retreat

For this second group, Lullin is tailor made. As pretty as a postcard, the little village nestles into the foothills of the Alps near to Lake Geneva. It's got great access to all the usual mountain sports and activities, yet exists, as it's always done, in perfect harmony with its surroundings and offers a tranquil retreat at the end of the day.

Amenities on offer in the village

Lullin is, in essence, sleepy and traditional, yet it does have some handy local amenities so you never feel cut off from everyday necessities. There's a small supermarket, local shops for bread, cheese and charcuterie, a bar and a couple of hotels and restaurants. And if you're looking for a little taste of a livelier nightlife than can be found in Lullin, you only have to go along the road to Morzine, eighteen kilometres away. Here you'll also find fabulous shops and numerous other facilities.

Heritage of Lullin

The village can trace its original occupation all the way back to the Bronze Age, and there is indeed a little heritage to be seen here, albeit from more recent times! Don't miss having a look at the restored water-powered oil mill, Le Moulin et la Scierie d'Anatole. Then there's also a Neoclassical church, and the ramparts of the old chateau.

Outdoor activities to enjoy

When it comes to sports and leisure, there are few places in the world so blessed as this region of the French Alps. You've got the ski area of Bellvaux on the doorstep, and access to the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area which includes Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz. Apart from winter sports, you can also enjoy sled dog trips, donkey excursions, or trek on foot to appreciate the fabulous scenery that surrounds the village. In summer, mountain biking is massively popular too.

Discover the spa town of Thonon les Bains and visit Geneva

If you want to do something different and get away from mountain sports for a while, you have plenty of options from a base in little Lullin. The spa town of Thonon les Bains is nearby, and well worth a day trip to enjoy. Then of course, there's the wonderful city of Geneva, with its famous lake and elegant lifestyle to discover.

How to get there

Geneva is the nearest airport, and you can also travel to Geneva by train. If driving (and don't forget the snow chains, they're compulsory in winter) Lullin lies on the D22, which you can reach from the D1005 or D902.

Property prices and availability in and around Lullin

Nowhere near to the great ski areas is cheap in the French Alps, but if you get away from the popular and famous names, you can pick up property more reasonably than you might think. These little villages like Lullin sometimes offer the chance to grab the sort of property that simply never comes available in the better known resorts. If you're prepared to do a little renovation work, for example, you might find a true character property for less than 200,000 Euros. Now, that's got to be worth considering!
