Apartments & Chalets in the Best Ski Resorts of the AlpsAutumn is well on the way and many families are turning their attention to winter holidays, particularly those who enjoy the white cold stuff and ski activities, many who haven’t been back for a while.
One of the most popular destinations for winter fun are the French Alps where snow is guaranteed every year. The highest ski resort in France and in Europe is Val Thorens at 2300m with pistes as high as 3200m!
The French Alps are famous for their huge skiing domaines, many ski resorts and breathtaking scenery, located on the easter side of the country mostly in the Savoie and Haute Savoie departments.
There are several options to get there depending on the country you’re coming from. From the UK there’s regular flights (in season) to Chambéry and Lyon, with Geneva a very good option for those travelling from further afield.
January is usually the best time for deals to ski resorts and quieter slopes, so this post-Christmas season could be a good time to go. In the Alps many domaines can stay open until spring when the days start to get longer and warmer, March and April are great months for French ski holidays. But a chalet or ski in - out flat isn’t just for Christmas and Easter, there’s plenty to do in the summer months too.
A blog on the French Alps wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the heart warming food and those unforgettable Fondue and Raclette evenings in a packed chalet at the end of a tiring day on the slopes or rackets. Along with plenty of wine and local spirits to keep warm and help the digestion process, so purely medicinal.
We have a good selection of ski properties and real estate in the most famous domaines including in the Trois Vallées, the world's largest alpine ski domain, with Courchevel the largest and most famous.
