Make a holiday rental in Le Bettex, France your home away from home

Le Bettex self-catering holiday rentals are found in a mountain community just outside the town of Saint-Gervais- les-Baines in the Haute-Savoie department of the Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France. This mountainous area is a top destination for winter sport, but also an excellent getaway in the summer months for anyone in search of adventure and unforgettable natural scenery.

Things to do in Le Bettex, France

At Le Bettex holiday accommodation you’ll have fantastic mountain views, with Mont Blanc visible from the village. If you’re holidaying here in the winter months then there’s a world-class choice of ski destinations within a short drive. First off, Les Contamines is mere minutes away in the car, and sits at the foot of Mont Blanc. It’s comprised of four different sections, each offering runs to a relatively specific skill level. For instance the Tierces section here has a higher proportion of black runs than the Montjoie section, which occupies a lower part of the mountainside. In the wider Evasion Mont-Blanc domain you’ll have some 445 kilometres of slopes to explore, all complemented by two terrain parks and a wealth of off-piste skiing as well.

In the summer months you could make for Le Bettex self-catering holiday chalets to experience some truly magnificent natural scenery. The terrain here can be explored via a host of walking trails, which range from relatively short and leisurely routes to highly challenging longer ones that take in step climbs. As you might expect, climbing is also a popular activity here in the summer months, with a number of local businesses organising excursions and providing guidance and tuition. Less taxing is the Mont Blanc tramway, which offers stunning views of the mountain, as well as providing access to various trails on the slopes.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We stayed here for a long weekend in early Feb '17 having been attracted mainly by St Gervais' close proximity to Geneva airport (just a 1 hour transfer time) and also by the chalets secluded location. We were not disappointed on either score! The chalet is about 200 m above the little hamlet of Le Bettex where you'll find a few restaurants, two mini-markets, ski hire shops and the telecabine up to the main ski areas. If you want noisy nightlife this is certainly not the place for you but if, like us, you want some peace and quiet away from everyone else with stunning views of Mont Blanc and a self-catering chalet with by far the biggest communal living areas we have ever enjoyed (and we have visited many) then you will love this place. It couldn't be more truly 'ski in, ski out' as it is right next to an easy slope down to Le Bettex and also just 20m from a button lift route. So getting back to it anytime is a doddle. There is no road to the chalet and so arrival and departure is by way of skimobile transfer arranged by the owners. They are absolutely charming and couldn't be more helpful both in advance and during your stay. They also run a mountain restaurant on the slopes just a few hundred yards from the chalet which we regularly visited for some great food and drinks. Bear in mind that as access is limited to either a brisk 15 minute walk up or by arrangement by skimobile before 9am or after 5.30pm, you will need to factor this in to your plans for shopping etc. Isabelle very kindly did some shopping for us prior to our arrival and again arranged to collect our bags from Le Bettex after our main shopping trip to bring it up to the chalet during our stay. The mini-markets in Le Bettex aren't huge but were fine for everything we needed for good but simple cooking. We loved the place so much that we ate in every night (a stiff G&T on the patio looking out to Mont Blanc at sunset or inside by the wood fire in the very large open plan living area every evening was too tempting to want us to leave!) but it would be easy enough to walk down to a restaurant in Le Bettex if you wanted and didn't mind a brisk night time walk back up afterwards. The skiing is of course less extensive and challenging as you would find in The Three Valleys etc (and not as high so snow conditions can be more variable) but still plenty to explore and keep you busy. We enjoyed our stay so much that we went back for a repeat trip just a month later! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
