Les Deux Alpes
What a beautiful city! I've been twice and both times it took my breath away. I recommend renting a small motor boat. Its a wonderful and extremely cheap way to get out on the lake. If you want to experience real french culture... get to
If you are a good skier and love offpiste, then
and Verbier are one of the best places in Europe. No argument about it.
If it is on-piste boarding/skiing you are after,
may not be the place for you. I am halfway through a season here and am just beginning to discover that it is all about the off-piste. That is the big deal with Chamonix.
We decided on
on a whim and what a lucky whim it turned out to be. Beeeautiful, picturesque Annecy is in France, yes, but the architecture is very swiss. Big ol Chalet type houses, incredible lake front mountain view. Not only do you step back in time, with the well-preseved buildings, but you step out of the caotic rush of some of the larger cities in France. Annecy has all the amenities of a big town, but provides a very welcome respite to backpack weilding travellers. Come here to relax, eat and sleep. Just not to party, cause their ain't to much going on. I lucked out because when I was there, there was a huge music festival, and we followed an amazing Brazilian band through the old town. They would stop periodically, forming a circle encouraging us to dance in their midst. That was living. Annecy is a retreat, a story book escape.
is part of Paradiski which is one of the largest and best ski resorts in the world. Ski lifts are open winter and summer. We live in Nancroix, which is part of Les Arcs and right on the edge of the Vanoise national park and we love it. There is lots to do for outdoor people -- ski, snowboard, mountain bike (downhill and cross country), white water rafting, via ferrata, walking, paragliding.
is aewsome. You should definitely go to the parks. One is next a lake and you can paddle boat up to the edge of a cliff. The buildings and briges are all very pretty.
