On the border with Italy and the Hautes Alpes department, Valfréjus is easily accessible whether you come by train or by car. 6 km from Modane (A43 motorway exit and TGV station), put down your suitcases and breathe! You are in the mountains and you are going to take advantage of it to recharge your batteries!

Valfréjus in Summer:

A charming little resort full of flowers and surrounded by pine forests, created in 1983 on the site of the hamlet of Charmaix at an altitude of 1,550m. The name of Valfréjus comes from La Pointe du Fréjus which is a rocky peak on the French-Italian border that culminates at 2,936m.

Valfréjus offers of course a multitude of hiking trails to the Thabor and Sarrasins Massif, through mountain pastures where sheep and cows graze, to the Seuil, Arrondaz and the Grand Vallon. Your dog will be happy because he can accompany you during your walks!
If you have decided to reach Nice by the GR5, make a stop at the Thabor refuge. The place is serene at the foot of the Magi and the view is magical!

Discover the forest and the mountains on horseback with Stéphane from the riding school, take off on the Charmaix zip line, progress safely on the via ferrata of the Grand Vallon. The chairlift and gondola lift are accessible to both pedestrians and mountain bikers.

Enduro and cross-country courses with evocative names, test your endurance on the 14 bends of the road between Modane and Valfréjus, by bike with or without electric assistance.
Find your bike trips on our app R-Bikes
Children will enjoy the Ludoparc and the playful Parc Accro specially designed for them, the animations programmed in the resort and the Modane swimming pool.
Walking at the entrance of Valfréjus, you will discover the Charmaix sanctuary, a very popular place of pilgrimage on the 1st Sunday of September. The history of this chapel and its Black Madonna will no longer be a secret when you take part in the visit with commentary by Laurence, a local tour guide.
