Summer Rentals: Changeover day is normally Saturday, but if you would like an alternative day please ask - we can be flexible to suit your requirements.

Also - if you would like a short break - just ask! You may want to combine a break in the Alps with one elsewhere in France. So whatever your needs - we can be flexible, just let us know what you would like.

Excellent Summer Location: Vallandry is located on the edge of the Vanoise National Park and provides access to numerous activities during the summer months such as hiking,mountain-biking, horse riding, white-water rafting and parapenting . The chairlift - approximately 300m from the apartment is open everyday from the beginning of July to the end of August. Once you arrive at the top of the chair-lift there is an abundance of marked routes and trails for both walkers and mountain-bikers, (bikes can be hired locally). There is a swimming pool (with fabulous mountain views) and an 18-hole golf course a twenty-minute walk away in Arc 1800. Kids love the Gli-Air aerial assault course in Nancroix. Parapenting, kayaking and white-water rafting can all be booked locally. The village also boasts two tennis courts, a beach volleyball pitch which also doubles as a football pitch! All-in-all there is more than enough to keep everybody amused both adults and kids - an excellent activity-filled summer location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Vallandry and certainly this apartment made our stay for two weeks very enjoyable. It was always a pleasure to come back after skiing. We will certainly be back if the apartment is available next year.

Fab family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently enjoyed a fantastic family holiday in this apartment. Perfectly described, the facilities were just as we expected but beyond that we found the chalet homely, comfortable and benefiting from personal touches that demonstrated it is a well cared for property. Proximity to the lift, shops and amenities in Vallandry was great too. The local English ski school New Generation meant the kids couldn't wait to get to their lessons. The snow/weather conditions were good also, so all in all a great holiday! Thanks Sonia

Perfect January; perfect place to stay and ski.

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can we say; everything fell into place. The flights, the car hire, and then to the apartment in Vallandry. Clean, spacious, well appointed, big balcony and easy access to to the village and the skiing. This was a family holiday, the 4 of us included to "boys" 19 and 21 year old. They loved the resort, and the apartment was big enough for us all. All the joining instructions worked out well; we recieved the keys in good time. The lads appreciated the DVD selection.

Would I go back to the resort...absolutly! Nice and quiet, but with enough facilities for the week; 10 min walk to Plan Peissey for more restaurants and shops. A short walk in the morning to the first lift.

Would i go back to the same apartment... yes I would. it was exactly as stated, and served our purposes. A good sized place, well looked after, in a great location.

Excellent apartment in Vallandry

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year in Vallandry and our third stay in this homely, comfortable apartment. It has lovely views and is a great base for winter or summer.

Walking distance from the village and the first lift for skiing. Great especially when you have tired, grumpy children.

We've stayed in French-owned apartments before, but find them very impersonal.

The extra shower was very useful and the bath an added luxury. The kitchen was really well-equipped, including things that are peculiar to English homes. You can make snacks and have dinner inthe village or simply make things from scratch. The local Sherpa shop is good. The deli also sells the nicest rotisserie chickens and potatoes I've ever tasted. You need to order them in the morning or day before.

Can't recommend it enough. The skiing is also great!

Have booked for next year!

Thank you.

We have recently arrived back from a wonderful stay in Vallandry and are already looking in to booking again for next year! The 5 of us all had a brilliant time and would defiantly stay in this apartment again. The views were amazing and it was just a short walk to the ski lift and restaurants/shops. The apartment was clean, well equipped and spacious. I would defiantly recommend staying here to anyone :)

Les Choucas, Vallandry

  • 4 of 5

Les Choucas is a beautifully located apartment block in Vallandry. We have now stayed in apartment no.1 on three occasions, for skiing. It's just a five minute walk from the village and main chair lift. It is clean and well equipped, with families in mind. (We have three children aged 9, 11 and 14.) As the owners use the apartment frequently, it feels more homely than other places we have rented in the area. Vallandry is an excellant base for the area of Les Arcs, but is small enough to not feel very busy unlike larger resorts like Morzine. We will be returning!
