Property Description

A well-appointed ski apartment situated in the town of Aigueblanche, the gateway to ski country, with 2 bedrooms, a lounge / study and a large living area, with kitchen and dining area.

This apartment is perfect for access to all of the ski stations in the Tarantaise Valley including Valmorel, just 20 minutes drive. This spacious 2 bedrooms apartment is ideally situated close to the main town of Aigueblanche but at the end of a private drive so as to provide a quiet setting.

The main attraction of this apartment is the access to the ski stations of the Tarantaise Valley. Within one hour you are able to reach Valmorel (20 mins), Meribel (30 mins), Les Arcs (45 mins) and Val d'Isere and La Rosiere (1 hour) and in summer, you are just 40 minutes from Annecy Lake.

For those who prefer to ski more than one station, this is the ideal lock-up-and-leave apartment in the Alps. There are 2 parking places outside the front of the apartment, plus 2 caves for storage of skis, bicycles etc, with access to water. There is a small, jointly owned garden behind the building.

The apartment is on the second floor, with a large hallway, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and independent toilet. There is a third bedroom, which has been converted in to a sitting room but could easily be converted back if required. At the front of the building, there is a large living area with kitchen / dining area and a terrace with views to the Valmorel ski station.

Aigueblanche is a typical valley ski town with a supermarket, a few restaurants and bars, a butcher, hairdressers, spa hotel and swimming pool (indoor, plus an outdoor pool in the summer). Moutiers, where the ski train comes in to, is just 10 minutes drive and it is 45 minutes to Chambery airport and 1.5 hours to Geneva.

For a Pied-a-terre in the Alps, there is no better situation.

Le Grand Domain Ski Area

Le Grand Domain consists of Valmorel, Celliers, Doucy and Saint-François Longchamp. It’s an excellent ski area that remains relatively unknown to many British skiers in comparison to the nearby ski areas of the Three Valleys and Espace Killy. In fact the back of this area actually overlooks the Belleville valley, one of the Three Valleys.

 

Saint-François Longchamp is located in the heart of the Maurienne Valley, in the south of Savoie whilst the resorts of Valmorel, Doucy and Celliers are based in the heart of the Tarentaise mountain range, and provide skiing for those who like to be a little closer to nature.

 

The ski area is spread over an altitude of 1,300 to 2,832 metres offering a wonderful 160kms of piste. It also has a vast range of Nordic skiing circuits available and this also includes separate resorts like Naves. There is no doubt that this area caters particularly well for families and the French flock here, hence there are more apartments than chalets. It is an area of outstanding beauty, great skiing and a vast wilderness away from the piste.

 

The resorts are very varied; Valmorel is the largest and most well known with a lovely village centre and lively atmosphere. Saint-François is a small bur well conceived resort that is also family orientated. Celliers is a tiny mountain village with an auberge that just happens to have a ski lift that links in to this area. This is a ski destination for those who really like to be far from the madding crowds.

 

Valmorel Ski Resort

Valmorel is a charming ski resort; it is a smaller size with some of its neighbours and is often compared to the huge resorts of nearby Three Valleys and Espace Killy, which is a bit unfair as this resort has a lot to offer in the way of skiing and charm. The centre is pedestrianised giving the après ski a very cosy and fun feel.

 

The resort nestles on the edge of the forest, next to the Cheval noir peak - Valmorel is a village that melts in with the landscape. The wooded, stoned and lauze roofed chalets spread around the ski lift departure points, the well designed centre and nice pedestrian street full of shops and restaurants give Valmorel a heart and it is a place where you will feel welcome and gives Valmorel its unrivalled character of a Savoyard village.

 

Also very popular and busy in the summer when tourists come to enjoy every type of mountain activity as well as the beautiful views and flower meadows. The ski area offers a diversity of terrain for the confirmed and adventurous skiers on the vertiginous black slopes and yet is also reassuring for beginners and children to learn on the gentle slopes of summer pastures.

 

Before I lived here I used to come for long weekends to Valmorel – and never had a dull visit, it always delivers for me. Specially equipped and secured areas have been designed especially for those new to the snow: 2 beginner stadiums for adults and children, and for those not so new - a snowpark including a half-pipe and a boarder cross.

 

Down the valley from Valmorel you’ll find La Léchère a small thermal town which provides all sorts of therapies to experiment with! Valmorel also has some charming satellite resorts which in themselves are worth a visit. Doucy Combelouvière, Longchamp and Celliers all with their own ski lifts and identity.

 

If you’re feeling adventurous get yourself a guide, the off-piste is meant to be interesting! So in winter this resort sits best with beginners and intermediates but also has a lot to offer the more hardened skier who is prepared to seek out the challenges.

 

In summer it’s a delight, the cycling in particular is stunning with plenty of refuges open for very good lunches. This is a great place to buy with prices lower than its neighbouring resorts mostly because it hasn’t got the following that the others have.
