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. There is plenty of deep snow, especially in winter and the temperatures rarely go below freezing. 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.

Places to visit on holiday at L’Etale, France

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.

Weather in L’Etale, France

Being a mountain locale, you can expect low temperatures here. In summer temperatures rarely touch the 30°C mark and it’s not unusual for there to be rainfall at this time of the year. Winter sees the most rainfall however, with averages of about 85mm being recorded. Temperatures as low as -3°C during winter are common.

A lovely apartment in a traditional chalet. Perfect for a family of 4/5 ski holiday.

4 of 5
We loved staying in this apartment. It had everything we needed including plenty of hot water for showers and plenty of space to store skis and boots etc. Also the extra mattress in the bunk room meant we didn't have to make use of the sofa bed as all 3 kids could sleep in the bunk room. The kids loved being able to play in the snow in the garden just outside. It was a good 10 minute walk to the main ski lift in Les Lays which was fine. Perhaps the description for this property could have included this information as the apartment was much better than we had imagined from the description. This was a great apartment- thank you!

Comfortable stylish and well equipped apartment

5 of 5
This apartment is a real gem. It is in a quiet village about 10 minutes from the shores of Lake Annecy. The interior is stylish, featuring stone timber and unique metal detailing. The owner Celine greeted us with a bottle of excellent local wine. The apartment comprises: a dining kitchen which is very well equipped including compact dishwasher and washing machine. Living room wiith sofa and large tv, with an alcove double bed. The bed is a little awkward to use being in an alcove with no space either side. Storage is also at a premium in the small space available, but neither caused us a problem. Compact ensuite shower room. As it is on the ground floor, there is a nice semi private sitting out area with a view of the mountain.
