La Clusaz – Where to stay
La Clusaz offers a wide range of accommodation mainly in traditional old wooden buildings, or new chalets built in a traditional style. There is a fairly equal mix with catered chalets, self-catered chalets and apartments and hotels available. Hotels and apartments are more likely to be in the centre of town, but most chalets are just metres from the regular free ski-bus stops, allowing quick and easy access to the pistes. La Clusaz is the main village and the one that is thought of when talking about the resort. However the skiing around the resort takes in the other smaller villages too – including Manigod, Merdassier and La Croix Fry. These smaller villages all have access to the pistes and boast chalets and hotels within them. St Jean de Sixt is a resort village 1.5km from the centre of La Clusaz Bigger than the other villages; it also has a good selection of amenities, shops, restaurants and bars.
The Aravis Lodge run by Ski Weekender offers delicious food and comfortable ensuite accommodation whilst you will struggle to beat La Ferme when it comes to location. This traditional wood chalet-hotel is right on the piste and just 30 seconds from the gondola and village centre. Also on the piste is the luxurious Chalet Panoramic and if you are looking for an upmarket self-catered option give Karibuni a try. Foodies staying in La Clusaz will appreciate the cuisine at the Hotel Beauregard, a large and friendly 3 star hotel.
