Catered Ski and Snowboard Holidays

In the winter, the chalet is ideally located for Les Arcs with its 450km of varied ski runs, the family friendly resort of Sainte Foy and 4 other world class ski resorts including Val d’Isere, Tignes, La Rosiere and La Plagne, meaning you can ski 6 different resorts in the week you stay with us if you wish to.

Although we’re not ski-in/ski-out, there’s no trudging around in ski boots since we will drive you the short distance, at times to suit. The chalet is less than 10 minutes from Les Arcs, 15 from Sainte Foy and La Rosiere and just over 20 minutes from Val d’Isere and Tignes.

Our catered option includes:

• Breakfast (cooked and continental options) • Afternoon tea with home-baked cake • Delicious 3-course evening meal including wine • Children’s menu available at a time to suit you. • Very flexible minibus shuttle to lifts

NB. Catering is provided on all days apart from the host’s day off (usually a Wednesday). This does not affect the daily minibus shuttles.

We do offer the chalet on a self catered basis during the winter as well so please do ask for a quote.

Catered Road Cycling Holidays

We specialise in catered, self-guided cycling holidays for all ages and abilities where you can test your fitness and cycling prowess by day and relax in comfortable luxury by night! Your group will have sole occupancy of our 5 bedroom chalet and grounds for the length of your stay.

The Savoie region of the French Alps is a real hot spot for road cycling and our chalet is located right in the heart of it. Whether you are looking to test yourself up some of the Tour de France climbs, or have a gentle cycle through the valley, you can do it straight from the front door! The chalet is set in the valley just outside Bourg-St-Maurice which means that each ride starts and finishes on the flat – a real rarity in the Mountains!

Our package consists of:

  • Board (with linen and towels)
  • Breakfast (cooked and continental options)
  • Afternoon tea with home-made cake
  • 3-course evening meal with unlimited wine
  • Minibus taxi service to town on host’s day off (7 night stays only)
  • Electronic cycle route planners and information
  • Emergency pick-up service

The prices for our catered cycling holidays are advertised on our website (link at the bottom of this page) so please contact us directly if interested.

Self Catered Holidays

Whilst we specialise in catered ski and road cycling holidays throughout the year, we are also able to offer self-catered holidays for people who want a more independent experience. The chalet is equipped with everything you might need to make your holiday run smoothly.

The chalet is set in a small hamlet of 3 houses, away from the hustle and bustle of the local towns, however both Bourg-St-Maurice and Ste Foy Tarentaise are easily accessible by car in less than 10 minutes.

The chalet itself has plenty of outside space to enjoy the wonderful weather the region has to offer. To make the most of it, there is a balcony at the front of the property which has plenty of space and outside furniture for al-fresco dining with views of the Isère River opposite. To the side and rear of the property, there is a beautiful decking area consisting of a BBQ and further seating with space for all!

The Savoie region of the Alps has so much to see and do and the chalet sits right in the heart of it. We think this makes it the ideal base for active holidays.
