Make a plan for the pistes
Keen skiers will be in their element in Grenoble. Not only is it the gateway to the French Alps, it’s got plenty to offer if you’re looking for more of a challenge, or to test your tricks in the snow park. Morzine, Chamonix and Avoriaz are among the favourite connecting resorts.
A stunning city
Taking up a prime plot in the mountain foothills, the city of Grenoble is quite a work of art. So much so, the Museum of Grenoble houses famous pieces by Matisse, Gaugin and Renoir. But that’s just the surface – check out the glowing city garden, old convent, and Bastille Hill.
Thinking of using Grenoble as a base? Well, why not? It’s close enough to lively Lyon to enjoy some of France’s best bits, but you don’t have to say no to Switzerland or Italy either, with Geneva and Turin respectively on your doorstep. Where will you choose?
