Christmas, what a beautiful time of year! It is the time for gifts, family reunions and meals. What if staying in La Clusaz made your Christmas in family exceptional? We give you the 5 good reasons to come to the mountains for a Christmas even more magical.

1. There is no better place for Christmas than the mountains

Look out the window the snow falling slowly on the roofs of the chalets. Little by little, the fir trees are cover with a beautiful white coat. The Christmas lights shine while the night falls on the village. Then the sky slowly clears and reveals a beautiful starry sky above the Aravis range.... We can already imagine the scene! The mountain is the ideal setting for spending Christmas with your family, and leaves young and old dreaming.

2. The "Pestacles du Père Noël", a unique street arts festival in the mountains

For almost 20 years, La Clusaz organize its famous event "Les Pestacles du Père Noël". This event is the largest street art festival organized in winter in the mountains for families. From December 24, 2018 to January 2, 2019, many artists will meet you in the village centre to experience unforgettable moments with your family. A week of poetry and celebration in the land of the imagination, where you can rediscover the magic of Christmas for free. You will even meet Santa Claus there on the evening of the 24th. Enough to go back to childhood!

3. A holiday to recharge your batteries and meet up in family

We live a life at 100 miles an hour! Going to the mountains is the perfect time to disconnect from daily life. Christmas holidays go hand in hand with family, so it's time to get together and enjoy a great holiday. And in the mountains, it lends itself well enough! After sharing a day in the mountains, a bowling alley and a walk in the village, the whole family meets at the chalet around a beautiful fireplace before enjoying a tartiflette. There is finally nothing more friendly to spend warm and unforgettable moments!

4. Activities to satisfy the whole family

It is not always easy to satisfy everyone's desires... in the mountains, you will find activities to satisfy the whole family: sports, fun, relaxing and festive activities. A morning at the Family Run to discover the skiing joys, a moment of relaxation and complicity at the spa with mom or dad, an escapade to the aquatic area to admire the mountains, a detour to the Hameau des Alpes to discover La Clusaz history... before joining the ice rink for a lap or try the Ice Bumper.  Thanks to a wide range of activities, your kids will have enough to leave with a head full of memories, and you with photos!

5. You won't get a better cheese platter than here. 

Because on Christmas Eve, you can't get a better cheese platter than here! Between the famous reblochon and local products... there is no shortage of specialities for your Christmas table. The gourmands will not be forgotten and will find their happiness in internationally renowned chocolate and pastry shops. You're going to make some people envious!
