Make a holiday rental home or villa in Savoie, France your home away from home

The French Savoie Alps are the most popular ski resorts in Europe. The ski resorts in Savoie are famous, known for their luxury chalet rentals, and exceptional winter sport facilities aimed for skiers of all abilities, ages and experience. The dramatic scenery also means that Savoie is open for holiday-makers during the summer. It is almost as famous for the walking, canyoning and rock climbing than it is for skiing.

Things to do on holiday in Savoie, France

The ski season is open from mid-December at the latest right through until the beginning of May, although snow conditions may deteriorate. This is not to worry about though. The region has over 1,000 snow cannons to help if natural conditions are not as they should be. On offer in Savoie is downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, heli-skiing, climbing, bobsleighing, snow-mobiles, swimming (indoor!), climbing, ice-climbing and much more. The health spas, cafes, restaurants and extensive shopping mean that there is still plenty of entertainment even on rest days!

During the summer, walking, climbing, mountain bilking and local festivals keep pulling visitors to rental chalets in Savoie.

Places to holiday in Savoie

La Plagne is a charming village, with close access to 10 ski resorts in Savoie. The facilities are varied, making a rental chalet here great value for family holidays. There is a bobsleigh track open to the public, natural and artificial ice-climbing walls, an ice rink, night skiing, youth clubs, dog sleighs carting and paintball available, not to mention the skiing!

La Plagne and Les Arcs, the adjacent resort, have together been dubbed 'Paradiski'! This is due to the combined 420km of piste, 158km of cross country skiing tracks, and the added facilities of Les Arcs, like the five snow parks, 3 boardercross tracks and the half-pipe.

The Three Valleys, famed as the largest ski resort in the world, has 600km of piste separated across 300 downhill runs! Here, snow is guaranteed, as Corcheval and Meribel, the resorts at the centre of the Three Valleys, has over 560 snow cannons.

The luxurious resort of Val d'Isere and her twin resort of Tignes have been described in the Good Ski Guide 2005 as one of only two 'sure-snow resorts'. This is due to their altitude. Tignes, despite some excellent black runs, also caters very well for beginners. It boasts 7 ski schools, and 5 free beginners’ lifts, as well as 150 shops in case the skiing gets too much! Val d'Isere is also the place to try out some ice-driving or snow-mobiling!

Very quick walk into val disere. Facilities were excellent along with private garage which was really important to house our mountain bikes. Would agree with previous visitors about the steps in the apartment 😊 would definitely recommend. Stan was also very quick to respond to any questions so overall a great find. Emma

The open plan Living/ Kitchen area was a fabulously, well equipped and social space for cooking, eating, relaxing and playing games. The bedrooms were terrific – good quality bedding, each with its own balcony and its own glorious bathroom! The chalet has been furnished with taste and real attention to detail making a pleasure to return to each day. The free bus that runs from outside the chalet,up and down the valley every half hour, was used by some or all of our party each day – it was a real bonus to not have to drive everywhere. There were plenty of walks and activities; via ferrata, paragliding, cycling, rafting, climbing, swimming etc. A trip into the Vanoise National Park was a real highlight. The members of our group who were returning to the UK by plane were able to arrange an airport transfer with the friendly, helpful next door neighbour Dave of ‘Pleisure Transfers’. A great holiday altogether. Thank you very much!

Summer lifts are also still free at Tignes as are the buses. Apartment ideally placed with very local parking. The apartment is in good order and is ideal for 4 to spread out a bit or 6 to be cosy. Great holiday.
