We stayed at Chalet L'Ours earlier this year with a group of friends, just after its renovations. It is absolutely stunning, both in terms of decoration and also the views across the mountains from most of the rooms. It is spacious and really well equipped for large groups (I loved the big kitchen table). Really appreciated also the nice extras e.g satellite, underfloor heating, high quality kitchen equipment. We have always skied in Austria, this being our first trip to France for this purpose and we were not disappointed. The slopes next to the chalet were virtually empty and we had great piste conditions (however the area is actually known for its excellent off-piste conditions). During the week we were able to access Val D'Isere and also Italian slopes. The owners gave us fabulous tips for ski guides (a must in my opinion) and restaurants nearby. We had a wonderful holiday: it would be hard to stay elsewhere after this treat.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone thinking of going to the Alps.
The renovations , recently completed, have been handled with care, thought and with the best materials. The views from each and every window in the chalet are spectacular. The entire chalet is surrounded by mountain. There was plenty of room in the 'communal area' for our group of 6 adults + baby to feel we were not on top of each other. There is a lovely open fire, a tv for some lovely relaxing time.
We had the master bedroom which was very comfortable and well equipped with built in cupboards. It fit the double bed, the cupboard area and the baby cot.
The owners of the chalet are knowledgeable about the area and willing to help with any advise you may need.
We had a young baby and drove to the resort from Brussels. The village, St Foy Terentaise, was easily accessible. We did however realise that the snow train goes directly to Bourge-Saint-Maurice which could have also been a good option. Once in Bourg we could have either hired a car or asked someone to pick us up. It was a short drive from the station to the house in St Foy.
