Holiday rentals and lettings in Les Saisies
A ski resort developed at the beginning of the 20th century, Les Saisies extends over three neighbouring municipalities. In the resort itself, on the Col des Saisies which gave it its name, many holiday rentals allow you to be as close as possible to the alpine or nordic ski slopes. In the village of Hauteluce, other accommodation allows you to enjoy the charm of this typical Savoyard village. Finally, on the Bisanne 1500 site, south of Les Saisies, holiday rentals allow you to enjoy another side of the Beaufortain massif.The modern comfort of holiday rentals in Les Saisies
The relatively recent creation of Les Saisies, as well as the station's hosting of some of the events of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games, give it a peaceful modern feel. Comfortable holiday rentals, with balconies and terraces, will allow you to enjoy an exceptional panoramic view of the region in summer and winter, especially of Mont-Blanc. Many other homes in the region will offer enough to cope with the harsh winter weather in Savoy: heating and washing machines will guarantee a pleasant skiing experience.
Holidays at the Seizures
Location and orientation
While eternal snow covers the highest peaks of Beaufortain, the region reveals many treasures when its plains green up in spring. Swimming enthusiasts will enjoy the many lakes in the region, especially Les Saisies or d'Amour, which will reward the hikes necessary to access them. A detour to Beaufort, located to the south of the resort, will allow you to discover its superb medieval castles, including that of the Outards. In Roselend, even a little further south, the impressive dam on the eponymous lake will surprise travellers. From there, the discovery of the 40 Baroque chapels of Beaufortain can begin with the Roselend chapel, which offers a superb panoramic view of the lake. A breathtaking region.Seizures in winter
But it is above all in winter that Les Saisies welcomes its largest contingent of visitors. Located on the Espace Diamant ski area, which has 192 kilometres of slopes, the resort is the ideal place for skiers of all levels. In addition to downhill skiing, the domain also offers, between the Val d'Arly and the Beaufortain massif, itineraries dedicated to Nordic skiing and snowshoe trekking. To discover the region while having fun, it is strongly recommended to vary the pleasures and go to the nearby villages of Praz-sur-Arly, Crest-Voland or Notre-Dame-de-Bellecombe, all located on the slopes of the Espace Diamant. It is hard to get tired of such a ski area, which offers an immense variety of practices and landscapes.
Travellers and activities
In both summer and winter, Les Saisies is a paradise for sports enthusiasts. In winter, the Espace Diamant offers a wide range of activities related to skiing. In summer, the 65 kilometres of hiking trails, which run from the Col de Lézette to the Mont-Blanc chain, via the Aravis massif, are an inexhaustible source of sports hikes for lovers of the genre. Finally, even the greatest skiers will fall back into childhood with Luge'n'Troll, a 2 km night descent using a headlamp in the Les Saisies resort. Thrills guaranteed.Seizures for families
Since its creation, Les Saisies has always had the reputation of being the perfect place to welcome families. In winter, many courses allow young and old to perfect their skiing skills. In summer, it is especially the aquatic centre Le Signal that will delight the whole family with its many facilities adapted to everyone. Whether it is snowing or sunny, the Moutain Twister, a rail sled, will offer thrills, in complete safety, to young and old adventurers alike. Something to have fun, whatever the season, in a resort designed to welcome holidaymakers of all ages.
The Saisies domain hosted the Nordic skiing and biathlon events at the 1992 Albertville Olympic Winter Games. The municipality also saw the birth of Franck Piccard, a three-time Olympic medalist during these games, and Raphaël Poirée, seven-time world biathlon champion.
