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.

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.

It is nearly ski-in ski-out as it is right by the slopes and lifts. It is in a tranquil area. The nearby restaurants are all very good, and there are plenty of shops. The apartment itself is comfortable and has everything that you could want including a bath for easing your aching limbs, and a ski locker, and the kitchen is well-equipped. We liked it a lot and found it good value. I have to say though that even though there are indeed beds for 8, in our opinion there is nowhere near enough storage, space or capacities for 8 people. Plus there is only 1 small bathroom. We found it ideal for the 2 of us and would imagine that you could just about manage as 2 adults and 2 children, unless you are prepared to be very limited due to it being good value. Be really careful if you have to use the double bedroom on the mezzanine as the wooden staircase is very steep with very shallow steps. Richard, the owner, is very friendly.

The chalet has been renovated beautifully and the layout was great for us as two families. The owner was very friendly and helpful and lives nearby if you need anything during your stay. The skiing conditions were excellent and the weather was fantastic. Would strongly recommend this chalet and the area. Had a wonderful holiday, many thanks.

It is ideally located for a 20 minute drive to the slopes of La Sambuy, or you can catch the bus that goes there twice a day. So we spent the mornings at Lake Annecy and the afternoons skiing! The accommodation is lovely, well decorated, warm and cosy and with lots to keep the kids amused. Thank you to Natalie for meeting us the next morning after we arrived late the previous night due to the drive from Calais, to help settle us in and orientate us to the area. You have a gorgeous house and just let us know if it comes up for sale!
