Areas

Areas within Savoie and Haute Savoie in the French Alps.

Mountain view from ski slope at Le Grand Bornand

We only work within the areas we know, found in two specific areas:-

  • Annecy and Lake Annecy area including the Aravis and the Lake Annecy ski resorts - Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz, Saint Jean de Sixt & Manigod.
  • Tarentaise - which includes the the Three Valleys, Paradiski with La Plagne above Aime, and Les Arcs above Bourg-Saint-Maurice, right over to Le Grande Domaine above Doucy Valmorel. Paradiski and Les Arcs are further connected by the Vanoise Express to form one of the largest interconnected domains in the world.

Knowing our patch we are able to help with local information and for many of the properties are able to access discounts for ski passes and other services.

 

Lake Annecy view from the Ermitage

Both areas are fabulous at any time of year and, as we only have properties in towns and villages occupied all year round, can provide a great base for discovering the gorgeous autumn colours or spring flowers out of season. Discover everything the different areas have to offer, by cycle or mountain bike, by the many well marked walks which are graded in the same way as ski pistes, or by paraglider. Enjoy a more gentle pace exploring beautiful scenery, ancient castles, villages and local fetes or fishing in the hundreds of lakes and rivers or get the heart pumping with mountain climbing, horse riding and whitewater thrills. There is plenty to offer every level of thrill seeker.

 

 

 

The ski domains include those known best and loved by the French in the Aravis, the best intermediate domain in the world for intermediates at Three Valleys, family focused La Grande Domaine and the thrill of the blacks and huge descents at Les Arcs and fabulous sunny slopes at La Plagne which together make up the Paradiski.. Having said that however, each domain has lots to offer all levels of expertise.
