Destination guide

Snow sports and alpine scenery—what's not to love?

First-class skiing and snowboarding, stunning scenery, and an abundance of wildlife—all reasons to make sure St-Bon-Tarentaise is on your list of must-visit holiday destinations. The nearby resort of Courchevel has helped turn this once-sleepy farming region into a leading center for winter sports, although plenty of summer travelers flock here, too. St-Bon-Tarentaise vacation rentals provide access to the world's largest ski area, but they're also a perfect option if you're keen to enjoy some of the best hiking, sightseeing, and nature trips that Europe has to offer. In the Parc National de la Vanoise, opportunities for adventure and relaxation are never far away.

Things to do

Breathtaking views in every corner of St-Bon-Tarentaise

It's the striking landscape around St-Bon-Tarentaise that attracts so many visitors to this region of France. For the best views in town, catch a cable car to the summit of La Saulire and soak up spectacular vistas across the Alps toward Mont Blanc. Galerie Hydraulica provides a chance to learn about mountain life and the arrival of hydroelectricity in the area, while Musee des Glaciers in nearby Champagny-en-Vanoise explains how this incredible region was formed millions of years ago. If you're looking for family-friendly fun, head to Aquamotion water park for an afternoon of swimming, surfing, and beauty treatments.

Activities

Go big on the slopes or go home (but you really won't want to leave)

If you're planning a winter trip to St-Bon-Tarentaise, you'll most likely be itching to get on the slopes as soon as you get in. Luckily, snow sports destinations don't come any bigger—literally. Les 3 Vallees is the world's largest ski area, home to leading resorts like Courchevel and Meribel. Those new to skiing or snowboarding will find great nursery slopes nearby, while experts in the group can enjoy almost 400 miles of powdery fun. St-Bon-Tarentaise vacation rentals aren't just for winter, though. Hiking, paragliding, cable car rides, and mountain biking can all be enjoyed when the sun comes out to play.

Weather

Warm up with some steaming mulled wine—une bonne soiree, indeed

If you're keen to carve up the slopes in St-Bon-Tarentaise, then be prepared to tackle the chill. When things get cold here they can get really cold—think average lows in the mid-20s during winter. Don't worry, though, as steaming mulled wine is the perfect livener after a day on the cold pistes. In summer, things warm up significantly, with typical daytime temperatures in the high 70s. Unsurprisingly, things can get pretty packed here during the holiday season. Aim to book St-Bon-Tarentaise vacation rentals in January, once school is back in session, to get the best deals.
