Come for the best of everything: snowfalls in winter, cow pastures in summer, and wonderful scenery always.
A shuttle bus takes guests to the pistes of Vallandry, and the world famous ski domaine of Les Arcs and La Plagne. This recently renovated chalet, ringed by beautiful larch trees, is remote, with wildlife in the forests and cross-country trails outside the door (the Centre Nordique is 30m). Eat fabulous lunches and dinners in the restaurant below; fall in love with Caz’s food. Sit out under the awning with a perfect cup of coffee – or a glass of Dave’s hoppy home brew. A smart kitchen awaits if you prefer to cook for yourselves.
When the snow melts, it’s hiker-biker heaven. Set off for Lac de la Plagne: it takes five hours. Return to bedrooms tucked under the eaves, with big comfy beds, uber-chic showers, and plenty of chunky beams.
