La Croisette self-catering accommodation is set within a large ski resort in les Trois Vallees, which belongs to eastern France’s Savoie department. As you might expect it’s a fantastic destination for winter sports enthusiasts in winter, and in summer the area’s breathtaking natural beauty is ready to be admired via walks, climbs or bike rides.
La Croisette holiday chalets would be an ideal choice if you’re in search of real variety. The ski area that is practically on your doorstep is enormous, and locally there are more than 60 trails, served by 39 modern ski lifts. La Croisette is an upscale district within the resort of Les Menuires, which in turn is connected to the massive Les Trois Vallees area, which means that you’ll be able to access some 600 kilometres of pistes within a short trip. Another excellent feature of Les Menuires is its wealth of amenities and activities on offer – for instance, there are 6 nightclubs and evening bars here, as well as two cinemas and a large, heated outdoor pool. Alongside downhill skiing, you could explore some of the local cross-country ski trails or hire a snow-scooter for the day.
In the summer months you’ll encounter a very different, but equally impressive landscape around self-catering holiday rentals. At this time of year there’s just as much to do in the area. If you’d like to get a unique perspective of this stunning environment, you could hire a mountain guide, with whom you’ll enjoy a range of activities, from fishing to mountain biking, glacier walking and climbing. Water sports are also ideal in summer, and among the activities available are canyoning and white-water rafting.
Around 45 minutes from holiday accommodation in La Croisette is the town of Albertville, which is where the 1992 Winter Olympics were hosted. It’s a picturesque location, and has been registered as a French “Town of Art and History”. Nearby Conflans is a medieval village, considered one of the most beautiful in France.
At La Croisette holiday rentals you’ll encounter an Alpine climate, which, thanks to the high elevation, brings plenty of snowfall throughout the winter months. Summers tend to be moderately warm here, with high temperatures usually peaking around the early 20s.
