We’ve had over a metre of snow here in Les Alberts and conditions in local ski areas are perfect. Check out Serre Chevalier’s webcam for a taste of the skiing there – just a fifteen-minute drive from Maison Clarée! (http://www.serre-chevalier.com/en/winter/ski-area/resort-live2/webcam/)

We’ve just come back from a fabulous family skiing holiday at Maison Clarée, which gave us a chance to check out all the work that’s been done and help put the finishing touches to our beautifully renovated house. All six bedrooms are now en-suite and the stunning kitchen diner is a joy to cook, eat and just be in. There’s a newly created bedroom featuring original beams in the centre of the house and a gorgeous new vaulted bathroom at mid level, with the most elegant bathtub we’ve ever seen! Keep an eye out for photos on the main website to see just how tempting the house now looks… Book soon to benefit from our price freeze to celebrate the refurbishment!
Discover a variety of fun-packed après-ski activities for all the family: sledging, half-pipe, yooner, big air bag… Montgenèvre has a mind-boggling array of snowy adventures on offer.

We’ve had lots of snow here in Les Alberts and all along the Clarée Valley over the past few days. The house is looking quite festive!
Plenty of snow has already fallen in the area and local resorts have opened early this year. The higher pistes at Serre Chevalier have 145cm, so it’s looking good for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Take a look at these websites and webcams for the latest info on conditions and the fantastic range of activities available for skiers and non-skiers alike: www.serre-chevalier.com/hiver/ and www.montgenevre.com/winter/
Ski areas at Serre Chevalier open on 15th December this year. Lift passes will be discounted during the first week of skiing. Montgenèvre’s ski area will be open from 10th December – keep an eye on local conditions for more information (www.montgenevre.com/winter/).
The French school holidays begin on 22nd December for two weeks. Their February holiday in 2013 will be from 16th February to 17th March and the busiest time will be from 23rd February to 10th March. Keep in mind that if you are able to book outside these dates, the pistes and the local roads will be much quieter.
