SUM 2018 // Le Chalet de la douceur***** and its hidden treasure

Located deep in the stunning Confins Valley with an unrivalled view over the Aravis mountain range, the chalet has two beautifully-appointed apartments, each with a wood-heated sauna but that’s not all... Under the roofing of this former farmhouse, correspondence between sons and their parents during the First World War were found during renovation work in summer 2018. In total, 20,000 letters were found intact. In memory of the 3 soldiers, the PVG Group have named the 3 units of the chalet after them and have displayed some of the precious letters within.


WIN 18/19 // Want to get away from it all ? Head to the St Alban****

On the 6th December 2018 the St Alban Hotel**** will open in La Clusaz. First in France for its size to be built entirely in wood, this unique hotel is an original combination of alpine living and French savoir-faire. The challenge was to combine technical innovation with outstanding interior architecture and the result is a cosy atmosphere, inspired by the history of French decorative arts in an elegant style with over 25,000 books available for book-worms to devour. The St Alban Hotel is sure to give its residents a memorable stay.



WIN 18/19 // The Bowling Alley gets bigger !

A bowling alley in the mountains? A crazy idea, but the launch of the bowling alley last winter by the PVG Group was a huge success, a first in the whole valley! This winter there will be an additional games hall of 70m². There will be something for everyone, with a multi-games arcade, flippers, air hockey, billiards, table football and driving simulators in a street art design. The 4 bowling lanes remain with a snack bar and lots of events organised through the season. A great place for families and friends to get together.


Sports & nature

WIN 18/19 // La Clusaz is an open-air sports hall!

Want to get away from it all? Need to do some sport? No problem, La Clusaz is a giant sports-ground with a multitude of activites on offer.

• Tone up with ski mountaineering
Ski mountaineering is a good way to do sport and get away from it all. No need for a high level of fitness or a lot of skiing experience to give it a go, beginners can practise on two permanent marked tracks in La Clusaz.

• Cross-country skiing : Objective tone your legs
This winter, the Nordic domain in Confins is opening a new cross-country ski track. The 10.5km long track forms a full circuit through the forest, passing through St Jean de Sixt and Le Grand Bornand. Take to the track, get those legs working and let yourself go. Even better, the track will be used as an MTB track next summer!

• Snowshoe walking to get the heart working
Get back to nature on a snowshoe outing and visit places skiers can’t get to. Let the mountain guides from La Clusaz take you to these wondrous places, where the effort is worth the experience. Follow in the tracks of the alpine fauna, walk along paths with outstanding views or go for an evening excursion with a Savoyard meal and really experience the mountains in its most natural state, requires just moderate physical effort!
