Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in L’Etale France your home away from home

This region offers those looking for the perfect ski holiday plenty of activities and excellent conditions in which to enjoy themselves.

L’Etale offers visitors an astounding range of accommodation from hotel rooms to villas to ski chalets to apartments to luxury converted farmhouses.

Things to do on holiday at L’Etale, France

Skiing is the number one activity that brings visitors to this corner of France. In winter, the place is usually teeming with people of all ages with skis strapped to their feet, gliding around on miles of ski runs. Both professional skiers and novices will find a place to challenge themselves on slopes with snow depths of up to 2 metres. There are also areas specifically designed for snowboarders. What is possibly the most fun part of most visitors’ time at the ‘pistes’ is the moonlit skiing (if there is a clear sky). And perhaps the most enjoyable part of this activity is the chatting around bonfires and the relaxing with a glass of wine in the pubs at the bottom of the ski runs. There is usually a live band playing at these pubs to entertain the revellers. Freestyle ski events are also held in the Aravis ski area mostly in January and holidaymakers who find themselves there can enjoy the sight of fearless skiers and snowboarders flying over the slopes. Visitors of course also get to admire the magnificent mountain scenery, especially when they get on the ski lifts to get to the peaks. The more daring are free to paraglide over the landscape to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the grand mountains. Those less inclined to hurtling down slopes, or just simply want to enjoy skiing at a slower pace can take part in cross country skiing. For the tiny tots there are ski schools, kids’ clubs, areas designated for sledges and an ice rink.

In L’Etale visitors will be within reach of a number of pure, cool mountain lakes such as Lac D’Annecy where they will be treated to breathtaking views and the chance to spot crayfish and other species through the crystal clear waters. A visit to the old town of Annecy is also worth the trouble. Here visitors can hire a bike with which to traverse the countryside and go round the lake. There are plenty of classy restaurants in the area where holidaymakers can repair after a day on the slopes. Le Flocon de Sel offers patrons an array of sumptuous delicacies cooked to perfection in traditional mountain style. A ride on the famous tramway Aiguille du Midi is not to be missed. The views from 12,000 feet above sea level are breathtaking to say the least.

The apartment was very well equipped and close to great restaurants, and the lake. Superb food market three times weekly during our stay. Would stay here again.

The apartment was spacious, well equipped and had beautiful views, with a sunny terrace. The host, Ken and Manchun, were welcoming and friendly, with plenty of helpful information about the local area. St Ferreol is a quiet village but is perfectly located for exploring the Annecy area: the lake and the old town of Annecy are not far. If you like walking or cycling, or just want to relax in the midst of stunning scenery, then this is ideal.
