Under 2 hours from 4 international airports; within 45 mins of 2 mainline stations. We live in the UK and will not be present during the stay; however we have good contacts in the village and we are happy to answer any queries any time of day. The chalet is positioned up the mountain, in a peaceful location on the Route de St Guerin. The reservoir up the road is a lovely spot for a picnic and there are wonderful walks all around the area, especially along the ridge above the chalet. The 2 mountains present some challenging pistes and there are loads of fun spots to go off piste safely. Ski randoné is a popular discipline in Areches and the mountain behind the chalet is a favorite route. If ski randoné is your sport then you can usually ski back to the apartment January and February. In the winter the snow plough clears the road making it accessible during the day. However if you arrive at night you may need snow chains. There is a shuttle bus in the village linking the 2 ski areas however it does not come up our road so you will need a car. You can park 1 car outside the chalet. Further parking may be available at the discretion of the other apartment owners. Most people bring their own bed linen, we have 3 double duvets and 3 single duvets. You can use our bed linen if you prefer but please tell us at the time of booking as there will be associated laundry costs. All other items such as towels and tea towels must be washed and dried prior to departure. If you are thinking about booking the property with friends, please note that the duvets on the double beds are doubles not singles. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 2018-11-01More

About the neighbourhood
This part of the Savoie has retained it's rural authenticity which a lot of the French alps have lost. There are no high rises, no busy main roads, only old wooden alpages, winding roads and the tinkling of cow bells.
Getting around
You will need a car to get around. We are 3kms outside the village and though you can walk down to the village, the mountain is steep so you will need the car (or a taxi) to come back.
