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.

Travel to Savoie

Savoie is serviced by three airports, all roughly 3-3.5 hours from the ski resorts. Chambery Airport (CDG) Lyon and Geneva all receive flights from the UK, and cheap flights are often on offer from Exeter and Norwich on Flybe. However, there are flights from many airports, and provided by many airlines, so it is worth shopping around.

Fantastic chalet

5 of 5
Le coq noir was a fantastic chalet located in conveniently for the slopes and also the hub at 1850. The chalet is classical in style. It had everything you could need appliances, utensils and a well stocked games cupboard. The views were amazing from the rear. We had a great time and would absolutely stay here again. Many thanks to Mr Eurin for providing this property.

Really super place

5 of 5
We had a great week at New Year in Petite Ecole. We were lucky because there was tons of snow, although it rained a bit in the middle of the week. Having been very delayed by traffic (10 hours from Grenoble) we missed out on doing a shop so relied on the Spar at Plagne 2000, which is very good. Our routine was to ski, get back to Plagne 2000 at the end of the day, have a drink, then shop at Spar and ski with rucksack and headtorches back down to La Roche, which was a daily highlight. If there had been no snow we could have taken the bus, or you can catch the last chairlift down at around 4.30pm. The house has a very spacious living area, which is ideal, on the first floor. On the ground floor there is a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, on the top floor there are 2 compact bedrooms and a bathroom. Total area is about 105 sqm if you include the shared boot room. Overall we would highly recommend Petite Ecole!
