La Clusaz is one of a very small group of renowned French ski resorts which are not purpose built, but are located next to world class ski areas. Indeed this traditional Savoyard village is regarded by some as one of the most picturesque in France. It has attracted tourists since the beginning of the 20th C, and enjoyed its 100th Anniversary in 2007.
The Village of La Clusaz is unspoilt and beautifully located in the Aravis mountains. The chalets are traditional, with wooden shingles. It positively welcomes families, and with its proximity to popular Lake Annecy (only 30 minutes drive) offers unrivalled opportunities for year round holidays.
For eating out there is an excellent choice of over two dozen restaurants, and excellent apres-ski in the village. There are also a number of restaurants within 10 minutes walking.
The resort is fully integrated across 5 mountains.
New in 2015 were new access cable cars to the main town pistes at Le Bossonnet, within easy reach of our Apartment. These are to diversify the mountain access points away from the Village centre which is also being served by a new cable car installed during 2017 .
The Apartment is closest to the cable cars and the Pistes of La Balme, which provide the best and highest runs of the resort till end of April each year.
Other Activities: luge - summertime, cross county skiiing, night skiing, ice karting and skating, dog sledging
Golf: In the summer season golfing is possible nearby at Les Confins plateau - including a driving range. A full golf course exists at Grand Bornand.
Ski: In brief La Clusaz, together with Grand Bornand, covers 5 inter-connected mountain massifs with over 220 km of ski pistes. Off piste is renowned. Ski season runs from approx Dec 20 to the end of April.
Overall the runs are classified as follows:
40 green - easy
45 blue - intermediate
36 red - hard
10 black - very hard
Near the Apartment is the Plateau des Confins with over 50 km of Ski de Fond pistes, where the 2018 Olympics would have been held.
Altitude: 1100 (at village) / 2600 m at peak.
The property is at 1350m, approx 4 km from the village. Close to Lac des Confins, it faces the Col de Balme (2616m) which has two cable cars within walking distance, linked into the resort and village. The free ski bus stop is only 200 yards walk, and links all the ski areas together.
It is a perfect location for enjoying the ski slopes, cross country skiing mountain biking or simply walking and relaxing.
Families are well catered for.
The local ESF Ski School + other private ski schools instruct in a choice of languages.

What makes this apartment unique
The view from the apartment is inspirational. The character and beauty of the resort is not spoilt by tourism, and remains 'traditional' with a truly french flavour, missing in many french resorts. The snow record is also excellent and as is supplemented by snow cannons to ensure the lower pistes can now remain open even in bad winters.
