Between glaciers and mountain flowers, large lakes and ski resorts, a holiday rental in the Northern Alps offers travellers hungry for space and fresh air many riches to discover. This area of great diversity attracts visitors in both summer and winter and offers outdoor activities for the whole family.
In summer and winter alike, the Northern Alps region attracts many travellers. Composed of three departments (Savoie, Haute-Savoie and Isere), it is adorned with landscapes that one never tires of contemplating, between snowy hillsides during the winter season and mountain flowers as soon as the fine weather returns. From Grenoble to Annecy, via Chambery, let yourself be tempted by a ski holiday rental in the Northern Alps and take advantage of these towns with their typical architecture, offering breathtaking panoramas and ski slopes as far as the eye can see!
In Savoie, discover the thermal baths of Aix-les-Bains and the Victorian facades of the town centre, the green theatre of Chambery and its elephant fountain (the famous fountain of the "quatre sans culs"(four without buttocks!)), the traditional village of Bonneval-sur-Arc or the Hautecombe abbey on the edge of the Bourget lake.
Then head to Haute-Savoie to visit the beautiful city of Annecy, with its very traditional old quarter and the Morens bridge over the Thiou river. The medieval village of the ski resort of Megeve will appeal to lovers of historical monuments, and you will have a good time in the thermal baths of Evian-les-Bains, on the shores of Lake Geneva.
Finally, take advantage of your Northern Alps holiday rental to discover Isere, the fortress of the Bastille of Grenoble, the houses with their colourful facades of Pont-en-Royans, the ancient theatre of Vienne and the Morestel city walls.
The Northern Alps are also home to many historical remains that bear witness to its eventful past: book a few days to go and admire the Ripaille castle in Thonon-les-Bains, the Casamaures of Saint-Martin-le-Vinoux and the castle of the Dukes of Savoy in Chambery.
Gastronomy lovers are not to be forgotten! Let yourself be tempted by a good gratin dauphinois, a socca, ravioli tombés or tartiflette, drizzled with plant liqueur.
If you book a ski holiday rental in the Northern Alps in winter, you can be sure that you won't miss out on any of the activities! Snow sports enthusiasts will enjoy the kilometres of slopes of all levels that criss-cross the resorts of Les 2 Alpes, L’Alpe d'Huez, Courchevel and Val Thorens. The resorts of La Norma and Les Portes du Soleil are particularly suitable for families.
Tired of skiing? Go for a snowshoe hike off the beaten track or for an introduction to bobsledding. Feel like doing something unusual? Try diving under the ice to feel a big thrill (but not because of the cold)! Then treat yourself to a unique moment experiencing a paragliding flight over the snowy peaks.
Do you feel like discovering the mountains in summer? Opt for a holiday rental in the Northern Alps, France in the heart of the summer season! Hikers are invited to take advantage of the beautiful panoramic views: remember the legend of Gargantua when you reach the Col de Bresson, admire the limestone plateau of the great Parmelan loop, discover the glittering alpine lakes above Chamonix and walk to the Barmettes hut.
Are you more into relaxing by the water? Head to the Bourget lake for a little swim or to learn various water sports: kitesurf, paddle... Pedalos are also available for groups.
But the ski rentals in the Northern Alps also welcome you in summer, as the slopes turn into downhill mountain bike trails. You can even use the ski lifts!
