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!

Weather in Savoie

Summer temperatures average at 21°C, perfect for rock climbing, mountaineering and walking, but winter temperatures are cold. Temperatures this high in the Alps average around 0°C during the winter.

Excellent property

4 of 5
Excellent property, very clean and comfortable, well-furnished, conveniently located in the village of Champagny-en-Vanoise, only 5 minutes walk from the cable car and the shops. We visited in summer, when there was lots to do: walking, mountain biking, canyoning. The owner was very quick to respond to all our questions and very helpful. It was not clear on the English version of the website that bed linen, towels and cleaning were not included (it was clear on the French version). However, the owner was very quick and generous in resolving the problem.

A happy and pleasant stay

5 of 5
As a couple we had an enjoyable stay. We would like to come back to the area. The location of the house is good if you are looking for a quiet hamlet stay. If town shops are what you want this may disappoint you. The whole area around Lac du Bouget is stunning. iIf you want access to quieter beaches than Aix les Bains, then Conjux just 15 minutes away is good with safe, clear and supervised swimming for kids (and adults). The house was immaculate and well presented. Jim and Rose were very helpful and willing to provide practical information. Excellent and spectacular sites (and sights) such as the Dent du Chat and Mont Revard not to far away. Good walking area too. Three lakes within the area. Lac du Bouget (the best,,) Annecy (way to busy and crowded) and Lac du lit du Rio near Belley.
