Make a holiday rental house or property in St Jean d’Aulps, France your home away from home

The charming Alpine village of St Jean d’Aulps lies in the heart of the Vallee d’Aulps in the Portes du Soleil region of France. It is the oldest village in the area, first settled by monks who built the impressive abbey which still impresses visitors today. However, it is not the historical importance of the village which draws visitors to St Jean d’Aulps accommodation, but the magnificent winter sports pedigree which it boasts as part of the Portes du Soleil ski domain.

Things to do on holiday in St Jean d’Aulps, France

Ski chalets in St Jean d’Aulps are wonderfully popular for a relaxing ski break. There are 20 ski pistes unique to the village, but with the 209 lifts and a huge number of pistes in Portes du Soleil, St Jean d’Aulps skiing holidays have enough skiing to entertain any standard of skier. Intermediate level skiers and snowboarders will be particularly impressed with the terrain. St Jean d’Aulps is an amazing place to stay, as the village has not changed at all for the tourist industry, staying completely true to its roots, and as a result, little bar the snow covered roofs changes between winter and summer.

In summer, the same mountains become the focus for walking, mountain biking and climbing holidays. The dark, forested Alpine slopes which encase the village hide some magnificent trails, and you can paraglide from many of the higher peaks in the region. Information on the 200km of walking, mountaineering and mountain biking routes around the Vallee d’Aulps are available from the St Jean d’Aulps tourist information office.

The river Dranse which runs through the centre of St Jean d’Aulps is a huge asset for any adventure lovers staying in a St Jean d’Aulps holiday rental property too. There are some fantastic places to fish along its banks, licenses for which (and the mountain lakes and rivers in the area) are available from the St Jean d’Aulps ‘Maison de la Presse’. Kayaking and white water rafting excursions down the river thrive during the spring as melt waters flash down the valley.

There are two golf courses within easy reach of a rental villa in St Jean d’Aulps. The 18 hole Les Gets golf course is particularly special, but you can also grab a quick round on the 9 hole Avoriaz golf course.

Places to visit on holiday in St Jean d’Aulps, France

The Portes-du-Soleil ski area stretches over 14 separate ski resorts in France and Switzerland, encompassing over 650km of pistes, and more off-piste than you could possible explore on a single holiday in a St Jean d’Aulps chalet. No matter which winter sport you like the look of, you will be able to find some of Europe’s finest facilities and terrain right under your nose in the Portes du Soleil domain.

Summer base for cycling the Morzine area and further afield.

5 of 5
A group of us, who are all keen cyclists, stayed in this very well equipped apartment for a week's cycling in the area which has famous Cols and climbs that have been used in stages of The Tour de France. Flying with our bikes, we were able to use the lockable ground floor garage for storage and routine maintenance. The kitchen/dining area is perfect for self catering needs and has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Lashings of hot water and great showering facilities kept 6 of us clean and happy. The village, although quiet has an excellent bar restaurant run by Bill and his staff serving food as well as draught Paulaner beer which we found to be excellent hydration material. First class accommodation for this type of holiday with a reliable and friendly taxi service provided by Neil, for whom nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend and we will definitely be going back !
