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.

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.

Having warm sunshine everyday made it possible to sit outside a lot: the decking and chairs make up for the lack of a lounge area, and we were able to sit and read, watch the birds, insects and lizards, and enjoy amazing views of the valleys and mountains. Very quiet, apart from the tinkle of cow bells. Great walking country, views of Mont Blanc as you drive east away from the property, and lots of interesting places to visit. The owner was away on holiday, which was a shame, but his cat made us welcome! We were sad to leave.

Arnaud and Nadine are there if you need them but very discrete otherwise. The apartment was perfect for our stay and is in a great location and, as has been said before, there is a great boulangerie over the road. The croissant aux amandes are delicious! Easy walk to the lake and a drive to visit Switzerland, Chamonix and other places in the area – be aware you need a vignette if you are visiting Switzerland. The stairs could be a challenge if you are less mobile and free parking is quite a walk from the apartment but other than that, we would most definitely recommend the property.
