Chalet Quatre Saisons
- Sleeps 18
- 5 Bathrooms
- Catered chalet
Built from local timber and located in a quiet spot amongst the pines it has the look and feel of a true alpine chalet. The rich tones of the wooden beams and the central stone fireplace give the top floor lounge/dinning room a warm, cosy atmosphere to relax in after a day on the mountain. The large, square dining table allows for long, fun evenings over a good meal and a glass or two of wine. The chalet also features a new hot tub (since 2009) where you can wind down after a long day on the slopes.
Chalet Quatre Saisons is located in a quiet area of La Rosiere. There is a free shuttle bus available for the 5 minute ride to the resort centre and pistes. The chalet features a wide south-facing balcony perched above the valley offers superb views across to the peaks and slopes of Les Arcs.

La Rosière skiing
La Rosière is lift linked with the italian resort of La Thuileand has a great snow record. The two resorts, although unlikely stablemates, form a substantial ski area with plenty of long wide runs to please intermediates. La Rosière also provides a useful gateway to some exciting heli-skiing over in Italy, enabling locals and ski holiday makers in France (where heli-skiing is banned) to heli-ski in Italy to their hearts' content (bookable through the Evolution 2 ski school), before returning to France's Tarentaise Valley. The combined area has 33 lifts and 135km of pistes.
The main draw back for those wanting to ski the Italian side is that the lift link is a long pomma lift and not suitable for beginners, young children or snowboarders not proficient in riding long pommas.
La Rosière ski resort
La Rosière, although purpose built, is a gem of quintisential alpine charm. There isn't a great deal to do off snow, although visitors are happy enough whiling away the evenings in the relaxed bars and restaurants (the Petit Danoise is popular and offers sky tv sports coverage plus internet access) The locals are friendly and the prices are cheaper than most other tarentaise resorts.
