Make a holiday rental chalet or apartment in Aravis, France your home away from home

Sixty miles from Chamonix in the French Alps is the secret ski area of the Aravis range. It is one of the premier free ski areas in Europe, perfect for the experienced skier who wants to find a new challenge. The ski area also boast some great pistes for the less experienced, with all the facilities you could possible hope for on an Aravis ski holiday.

Things to do on holiday in the Aravis ski area, France

The Aravis ski area has 117 pistes, consisting of downhill slopes and 56km of cross-country ski trails, split into four areas; La Clusaz, Le Chinaillon, St Jean-de-Sixt and Mont Saxonnex. Whilst the resorts offer great skiing for all abilities and instruction for beginners and young children, there is some of the best back country skiing and safaris available.

In the summer, the snow cover melts, leaving glorious Alpine meadows covered in flowers, which provides the ideal base for trekking and mountain biking. Taking an Aravis apartment in the summer also allows you to go fishing in the full melt water rivers, play golf or get an adrenalin fix on the go-karting track or in a hot air balloon. The world paragliding championships are held here too, just minutes from the front door of any of the Aravis apartments.
