Chalet Epilobe is a self catered ski chalet in La Rosiere, France with the option to ski into La Thuile in Italy due to ski area
La Rosiere is largely a modern resort so we feel very lucky to be able to offer this remarkable 150 year old traditional stone farm building has been lovingly restored, transforming it into a fabulous chalet. It’s a rare treat and what’s more it’s in a superb location – the main express lift only a 50 metre walk away, and you can ski back to with 20 metres of the chalet’s front door.
Chalet Epilobe is a warm and homely chalet that’s beautiful inside and out, offering a cosy interior with stylish contemporary design within; then looking out there are spectacular uninterrupted views across the valley, which you can enjoy from a lovely south facing balcony.
The living room and dining area are open plan. The kitchen and balcony are south facing with uninterrupted fantastic views over the Tarentaise valley and beyond. Featuring 2 double rooms en-suite with shower & sink, and 2 twin rooms en-suite with shower, this chalet sleeps 8 people. There are two separate toilets with Rooms 1 &2 sharing one, and Room 3 & 4 sharing the other.
Chalet Epilobe is in a great location being only 50m away from the main Les Eucherts 6 seater express chairlift and ski school meeting point, in fact its one of the closest catered chalets in the whole of La Rosiere to the slopes. Les Eucherts has its own bustling centre with shops, bars, restaurants, a bowling alley, ice rink and ski school. La Rosiere centre is a short free bus ride away or a pleasant stroll along a pretty forest track.
This La Rosiere chalet is sold on a self catered basis only.
This attractive French resort is situated on a sunny plateau high above the Tarentaise Valley with spectacular panoramic views all the way down the Valley towards La Plagne and Les Arc. The Espace San Bernado straddles the border between France and Italy so you can ski across the border for lunch and be back for afternoon tea which is quite awesome we must say.
La Rosiere offers excellent value for money with a reasonably priced ski school, equipment hire shops and apres ski activities that are all just a couple of hundred metres from our ski chalets in La Rosiere; it's hardly surprising that many of our guests return here year after year. The resort caters for all abilities and the wide open uncrowded pistes in La Rosiere are perfect for enjoying the scenery and sunshine. To practice your turns, once you have found your ski legs, you can tackle the challenging Italian slopes with the majestic Mont Blanc as your backdrop.
Skiing in La Rosiere
Described in the Where to Ski and Snowboard Guide as the sunniest slopes in the Tarentaise, but also the snowiest. La Rosiere is known for its great snow conditions with uncrowded pistes and is a true gem of a village resort. La Rosiere is linked to the Italian Resort of La Thuile forming the Espace San Bernardo ski area. The vast majority of the skiing is above 1850m, ensuring great snow conditions, with the highest on-piste skiing at 2640m. It has lovely wide, gentle pistes with a good mixture of blues and reds for beginners and intermediates. There are also a couple of snow parks, along with challenging blacks for the expert skiers and the opportunity to try heli-skiing in Italy.
With wide open slopes near the top giving way to attractive tree runs closer to resort, La Rosiere has been awarded 'Famille Plus Montagne' status by the French authorities which recognises its efforts to be truly family-friendly with its easily-accessible nursery slopes close to the main village of La Rosiere 1850 and Les Eucherts. Intermediate blue and red runs, 15 blacks and 2 snow parks mean it can also cater for every taste and ability. The most testing ski area is the Touraisse sector, which also has some of the best off-piste. La Rosiere is the only place in France where experts can legally heli-ski across the border into Italy down to La Thuile. Snowboarders are well served with great off-piste runs and open powder fields.
Les Eucherts has its own bustling centre with shops, bars, restaurants, a bowling alley, ice rink and Ski School. La Rosiere main centre is a short free bus ride away or a pleasant stroll along a pretty forest track but you do not really need to go there during your holiday as there are great restaurants in the Les Eucherts area including Le Flocon and Les Granges.
There are a few bars in Les Eucherts near our chalets, for example the Moo Bar lounge and nightclub is great for entertainment and to unwind after a long day in the mountains. For additional Apres-ski and nightlife there is a free minibus service from Les Eucherts to the main part of La Rosiere 1850 until 11pm. To top that off, the resort has a weekly firework display and torch lit descent which should not be missed.
