Make Holiday Rental Chalet in La Grave, France, Your Home Away From Home

La Grave is one of the most exciting ski resorts in France. It isn’t a normal resort like others in the Alps, it is a patrolled and lift serviced off-piste ski area, unique among its kind in Europe. The small town of La Grave is also interesting. The town is so high in the mountains that the traditional French wooden chalets were not possible due to a lack of trees. Instead the area displays more stone architecture for the houses and rental chalets, another reason why this quirky little French ski town is so unique. This town is very accessible, and there is a variety of self catering accommodation in La Grave ready for holiday makers.

Things to do on Holiday in La Grave, France

The town services the resort, which is among the most exciting in Europe, which makes holidays in La Grave appeal to the very adventurous. With over 2,100m of skiing, La Grave has a lot of skiing available right from the chalet. The ski area is reachable through the gondola style lifts and a button lift at the top. From the top, it is possible to ski down the back of the mountain to the 2 Alps resort. Keep in mind that none of the ski area is actively maintained through grooming or avalanche control, it is only patrolled. So the skiing at La Grave is exceptional, and reserved for only serious skiers and snowboarders.

Places to Visit on Holiday in La Grave, France

In the heart of the Alps, La Grave is a great place to get out and adventure. In the winter, the surrounding mountains make for great ice climbing. Veteran British Mountaineer Terry Taylor used lead ice climbing adventures in the area, and put the place on the map for many keen mountaineers looking for an exciting challenge. In the summer the surrounding area still features many glacier walks and hikes. La Grave is not far from Les Deux Alps ski resort, one of the older resorts in France, and here the usual amenities of the ski resort can be found.

Weather in La Grave, France

The weather this far into the Alps is highly changeable, so when off and adventuring take adequate attire for all conditions. In the winter, it is understandably cold. Highs sometimes get above freezing, but as most people are here to enjoy great skiing, the coldness ensures nice dry snow. In the summer, the weather gets quite warm and highs average at about 27 degree Celsius. It can be a little bit wet, in the summer expect rain on 10-12 days per month, but totalling about 60mm. In the winter, snow will fall more or less the same amount. Keep in mind that the most precipitation is in the Spring, so if it is a cold spring that means great snow!

Travel to La Grave, France

The best way to get to La Grave is via Grenoble. There are other routes that can be taken by car, but in the winter all others are risky as they involve high mountain passes. From Grenoble, there is a coach service that connects to La Grave, or a pre-arranged taxi can also make the trip. Grenoble Airport (GRB) is accessible via easyJet and Ryanair from several airports in the UK including Birmingham (BHX), Bristol (BRS), London Gatwick (LGW), London Stansted (STN) and Liverpool (LPL), with winter seasons flights also from Edinburgh (EDI).

Carole was very accommodating for our late arrival. In the description it mentions Internet access as a facility -this is not the case as you have to pay a fee for it. The owner could have been quicker in responding to questions but overall we enjoyed our stay.

The apartment is fully furnished with modern facilities and good Wi-Fi. All of the facilities mentioned in the description were fully functional. The apartment was clean when we arrived and there were no noise problems. Furthermore, the property has very good heating. Slope access was excellent; the chairlift which can be accessed from the apartment is open before all other lifts ensuring that you can get to the Jandri Express or the Village chairlift in the morning before any queue is formed (18/02/17). The green ‘Access’ run is only a few steps away and is great for departing and returning with ease. Just a short walk away is Bar Vie which provided excellent food throughout the day and had a good atmosphere during the night, we visited this often. Annie (the lady who handles the keys) was very helpful in ensuring that we still gained access to the apartment when our flight was heavily delayed and the owners were also very helpful in allowing us to pay the deposit via bank transfer because we had to check out very early in the morning. Overall, I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wishes for a great stay at Les Deux Alpes and we hope to stay again!

Prior to arrival Claudine was very helpful, replying to communication almost instantly. The chalet was clean and very nicely decorated. While the layout is a bit unusual with one toilet on the landing and one bordering the living room it didn't pose our group any issues. From reading previously people have had issues with the location however we found no such problem. Claudine picked us up with luggage. Whilst in the chalet it was a 50m walk to a green ski slope while about 7-10 minutes across the same slope to the nearest shop and bar. The centre of the town would take around 15 min to walk to however the bus stop is only around 30m from the house thereby negating any real issue. I would happily stay in this chalet again.
