BEST FOR A LONG
For quick family ski holidays
let's take a look at St. Gervais.
It is close to the international
airport at Geneva, thus offering
easy access to this stunning location which
is actually an all -year
round town. It offers on and off
slope activities which makes it
super attractive in the summer.
Or how about buying in Lyon,
one of the most exciting and dynamic cities
in Europe, offering
cultural activities for all the family in
a historic and bustling city.
Finally, if water floats your boat,
how about one of our lake side
locations at Lac d'Annecy, Lac
du Bourget, Lac Leman or SerrePonçon
- all beautiful, huge
clear lakes with water sports,
walking and gourmet lunches.
BEST FOR EXTREME
If you are looking for an adrenaline rush then take
you are in the worlds biggest
specialist playground. Top of my
list would be a visit to Chamonix,
known as the adventure capital
of the world. Parapenting, sky
diving, canyoning, climbing, cycling or
trail running - if you're
looking for a buzz then there's
no need for Red Bull here!
THE FINEST GASTRONOMY
You can take your pick of high-
class restaurants in any of the
famous ski resorts. Chamonix,
Courchevel, St. Gervais, La Clusaz… all can lay claim to superb
food in swanky surroundings.
Real foodies head to Lyon. You
can ask any Frenchman where
to find the finest food and wine
and he'll point you to this UNESCO
World Heritage city. Surrounded
by glorious countryside which
furnishes the finest
ingredients, home to a world famous indoor market
restaurants (13 with Michelin
stars). Food heaven.

"The department of Isère may not be as well known as
its neighbours but it offers unrivalled value for money
and is increasingly popular with overseas buyers. Les
Deux Alpes is France's second oldest ski resort (behind
only Chamonix). It has the largest skiable glacier in Europe,
allowing year round skiing. In 2021 it will be linked
