Driving in Snow
Snow-chains, which are compulsory items to carry in your car in this area during Winter, may be needed for getting in and out of the car-park, after heavy snowfall and before the snowplough arrives. SUV owners won't have any trouble.
Within the apartment block is a secure ski locker in a venitlated room for storage of all your equipment. Excellent skiing is available in Grand Bornand and La Clusaz with a range of runs from Green to Black; as well as Nursery, and small, green, blue and red practice slopes in the village itself.. Off-piste skiing is also a possibility, but please use a guide for your own safety. You can drive to the base of the lifts in many cases, or perhaps more conveniently, use the ski-bus, which is free with your carte d'hote. They run very regularly through the season, and the stop is only a 5 minute walk from the apartment. We can provide help and guidance on ski schools, including guides for more advanced skiers, as well as being able to offer discounted ski-passes delivered to the apartment on arrival day. We recommend Contat Sports for your ski hire; the shop is very close to the apartment. You can get a 10% discount on equipment rental with flyers available in the apartment. Have fun!
The Rhone/French Alps region
Haute Savoie covers the northern region of the Alps, close to Geneva and with the famous lakeside resort town of Annecy at its heart. The climate is cold and snowy in the Winter and very warm in the summer.It's an outdoor paradise with activities for all ages in all seasons.
The Aravis alpine area, extending from the Plateau des Glières to the Col de la Colombière and Col des Aravis, enjoys a peaceful and relaxed pace of life. Spruce forests continue to supply wood for a thriving forestry sector, while attractive mountain pastures are the backbone of the famous Reblochon cheese industry. Ramblers will find walks and hikes to suit a range of fitness levels, with delightful village resorts waiting to be explored at the foot of the Aravis mountain chain.
This region is extremely popular wth the French, and is also the only place we are aware of where you can do guided night skiing!
St Jean de Sixt
St Jean-de-Sixt is a very pretty village, flanked by dramatic mountains and breath-taking scenery. Within easy reach of Geneva airport, only 30km from Annecy and 5 mins drive from the major resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand; St Jean makes for an excellent and varied holiday destination and base.
