A versatile, very well-equipped apartment to rent in the French Alps resort of Vallandry. Nestled between Les Arcs and La Plagne, in the spectacular region of Paradiski, you can enjoy superb skiing in the winter, and a variety of walks and outdoor pursuits in the summer.
Conveniently situated within a two minute walk of an excellent choice of restaurants, ranging from takeaway pizza places to à la carte, offering local Savoyard specialities, plus a selection of lively bars, some of which host live music and dancing. Vallandry has a supermarket, plus patisserie, boucherie and charcuteries, as well as several ski equipment and hire shops. Bourg St Maurice has three large supermarkets.
Stunning views over a serene valley, with Mont Blanc to the north, and the Bellecote glacier to the south, make this apartment in Vallandry a magical place to spend that special summer or winter holiday
The apartment, which is part of the Crêt De L'Ours complex, is a comfortable 48m square, and sleeps six adults or two families, with ease. The apartment is very well equipped for self catering.
In winter the resort has great all round appeal. For experts the exhilarating black and red runs down from the Aiguille Rouge glacier represent a serious challenge. The Peisy-Vallandry ski area also offers great beginner and intermediate skiing, without the queues which can build up in other areas. Les Arcs is a snowboarder paradise, with the famous Olympic runs and board park at Arc 1600.
Situated just above the main Vallandry chairlift, and just below the fast six-man Grizzly chairlift, the apartment is ideally positioned to allow ski in and out access for the majority of the winter season.
