Have you already discovered such hot and sunny holiday destinatins as Tamariu Holiday Villas and are now looking for something a bit different? A venue for the adventurous and thrill-seeking skier, this ski resort is not for the faint-hearted or the inexperienced! La Grave is a place which welcomes those fans of winter sport who have an adventurous spirit. This is not a place where beginners can tackle nursery routes or the more experienced try something a little more advanced in the way of roped-off routes. Anyone staying in La Grave holiday rentals can expect to plan their own ski routes down the mountain. Once the cable car has lifted visitors to a height of 3200 metres, it is then down to them to find their own way down the mountainside on skis. There are no marked trails here, no ropes and nothing that gives you the feeling you are in a conventional ski resort.

This means that any skiers visiting here must be technically proficient, confident, experienced and brave. If you are adventurous, passionate about skiing, a thrill seeker and someone who is always looking to challenge and better themselves and push themselves to the next level physically, there is no better ski resort in the world for you. The range of skiing terrains to choose from is simply outstanding. Visitors can ski across the mysterious blasted landscapes of glaciers, or choose to hurtle down steep descents. Caution and respect for the mountains are crucial though, as the area is unpatrolled.

But the feeling of freedom to be savoured in a trip to La Grave ski apartments is tough to beat. The sheer unadulterated thrill of knowing that returning safely to the bottom of the mountain rests entirely with the skier is actually a liberating responsibility, something to be valued and treasured. The feeling of being so close to the mountain and its essence is difficult to find elsewhere in the Alps, perhaps even in the world. Summer visitors to La Grave holiday rentals can also find plenty to keep them occupied. A cable car takes travellers up to the high peaks of the region, where they can view stunning Alpine peaks and glaciers which are covered with snow, even at the height of summer. The village of La Grave itself has about 700 permanent residents, and is a place composed of stone buildings. There is little wood with which to build here, and therefore none of the usual ski chalets and lodges you may typically associate with such a skiing resort. This is not a tourist village, and there are no modern shopping malls or flashy restaurants. The village is inhabited by locals and emigrants who have moved there to enjoy the spectacular environment. With such stunning and exciting skiing on offer, it is understandable that they would want to stay.
