All food is catered by our professional chef in resort and includes a buffet breakfast, packed lunch and well balanced dinner in your chalet - we don't like anyone to go hungry so food is plentiful!!
A great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to live in the beautiful French Alps with fantastic biking and hiking on your doorstep.
A short hike up the side of the valley gets you to a mountain refuge, where you can see marmottes and mountain goats and stunning views of Mont Blanc. There a thousands of trails you can explore, perfect for quicks runs to day long hikes, with unforgettable views of some of the highest peaks in Europe.
It is also an ideal lifestyle for keen road cyclists - there's lots of excellent local road riding as we are in cycling distance to a number of mountain Cols, including the highest paved mountain pass in Europe the Col D'Iseran and the Col de Petit St Bernard which also serves as the border into the Aosta Valley in Italy. Over this pass it is also possible to cycle to the base of Mont Blanc (or drive if you prefer!).
We also have plenty of mountain biking for those who like to get their tyres dirty. There are beautiful trails all along the valley, and some great downhill runs down from the popular resort of Tignes (although some of it may involve a bit of a push uphill first!
This is not to mention the beautiful Brevieres lake for keen fisherman, tennis courts and petanque pitch.
