Imagine going straight to the slopes from your holiday home. Or skiing right up to your chalet. In many different ski resorts in France and Austria, the chalets and apartments are located at the bottom of the ski area.When you open your bedroom curtains, you can see the beautiful, snow-capped mountains and the perfectly groomed pistes.One big advantage is that you don't have to walk far in your ski boots and you don't have to sit in a busy ski bus.Let the winter sports holiday begin.
As you lie in bed and slowly draw open the curtains, you look out over the beautiful snow-covered mountains. There's no better view is there? Many chalets are located near or next to the ski lifts, so you are on the slopes in no time. The French and Austrian ski resorts are perfect for a holiday home on the slopes. Which means you can enjoy it to the full.
In addition to its large adjoining areas, France is also very popular because of the wide range of chalets and apartments on the slopes. There is something for everyone in the ski resort of Val Thorens. You will find blue, red and black runs, good restaurants and excellent party opportunities. The big advantage is that your holiday home is situated in the ski resort, so you can take the first gondola up in the morning and ski down in the evening to your own chalet. The ski resort of Les Portes du Soleil is also the ideal base if you are looking for a holiday home on the slopes. This large ski area consists of as many as 9 different villages. The villages are situated directly on the slopes and they have managed to retain their charm, despite the size of the area. The village of Champoussin is one of the most beautiful in the area. There are no high-rise buildings here, only beautiful wooden chalets and apartments, which are suitable for both large and small groups.
Of course, it's not only France you can go to for a holiday home on the slopes. The beautiful Austrian ski resorts have all the elements you need for a wonderful winter sports holiday. If you want to stay in the Zillertal Arena, Köningsleiten is the perfect choice. This area is popular for its altitude which guarantees snow and offers blue, red and black runs. Many slopes run straight past the holiday homes, so you can ski right up to your own front door. The small but cosy Bradnertal is also a great place to stay. Here you will find more than 55 kilometres of pistes, which are suitable for both beginners and advanced skiers. A number of holiday homes are located directly on the slopes, which means you can get straight out of bed and onto your skis.
Whether you are travelling with a small or a large group, Belvilla's holiday homes offer something for everyone. There are beautiful group houses with several bedrooms and bathrooms, cosy chalets with their own jacuzzi or apartments with a real fireplace.Whether you are staying in the middle of the village or right on the slopes, it is great to stay in a holiday home.
From your bedroom in the morning, you can see the first ski enthusiasts heading up the mountain or walking to the ski lifts.All you have to do is have breakfast with a nice cup of tea or coffee before you set off for the slopes. You can quickly ski to your holiday home to enjoy a delicious lunch. After a hearty lunch, you can put your skis back on and get some more runs under your belt. Isn't that what every winter sports enthusiast wants?
When the French ski villages of Les Arcs were being built, they took into account being able to ski straight from your accommodation. The holiday homes in this area are luxuriously furnished, so you will want for nothing. Many of the pistes pass by the holiday homes in the village so that after your last run, you can ski or snowboard directly to the front door of your holiday home. Unlike in the past, holiday homes in France are much more spacious. So you can easily go with the whole family or a group of friends to Les Arcs or La Plagne and enjoy a well-deserved winter sports holiday.
The advantage of French and Austrian ski resorts is that most ski villages are car-free. So you can enjoy the surroundings in peace when shopping or walking. The ski resorts have good restaurants serving both national and international dishes. How about trying an Austrian Schnitzel or a sweet kaiserschmarrn? Or a French raclette or crepe? Whatever dish you choose, it will certainly make your mouth water.
On a winter sports holiday, the most important thing is that you can enjoy great skiing or snowboarding. Yet there is much more to experience on and around the slopes of the ski resort. How about tobogganing, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing? And of course there is plenty of time to relax in the spa.
During your winter sports holiday, a toboggan ride is a must. There are plenty of tobogganing possibilities, especially in the Austrian ski resorts. This is a fantastic activity for both young and old, that gets your heart racing. How about a ride on the 6 km-long toboggan run in Vorarlberg, Brandnertal? Or a ride on the sledge in the mountains around the 3 Vallées? The kids will love it. Some toboggan runs are even floodlit and open until 22:00. So you can enjoy an exciting descent until late in the evening.
As well as tobogganing, the Austrian ski areas, such as the Zillertal Arena, are perfect for a snowshoe hike or a cross-country skiing trip. You can go straight to the trails or the well-trodden hiking path from your holiday home.The routes pass by the most beautiful places in the area. If you decide to go with a guide, you will discover places you would otherwise not have seen. Some of the trails are high above sea level and give you wonderful views during cross-country skiing.
If you are going on holiday with children, then the child-friendly ski resorts are highly recommended. In some of these areas, the holiday homes are located right on the slopes. Children can have fun in the playground or at the ski school. In the children's area, various winter activities are organised, such as building a snowman, a skiing race or a snowball fight. They will not want for anything.
