Have just got back from a holiday of extremes in La Clusaz. From having to walk across roads and streams one day to 18" of powder less than 4 days later. There is a lot of skiing to be had.

The hotel I stayed in was very authentic, with a sense of being in a large cabin, with beautiful flowers and greenery everywhere. The hotels around the town and area, tenede to blend in with the surroundings, for example, log like buildings, colourful flowers ... Read the complete review
