Although La Rosiere is a small ski resort in comparison to others close by, it is made up of several different areas with distinct personalities. For example, Le Gollet (the yellow sector) is a quiet, wooded area that is made up of privately spaced, mostly British-run chalets. By comparison, the Les Chavonnes Hautes area above the centre of the village, right on the slopes, is an area that is made up of four large chalet/hotel complexes. Surprisingly, there are some 11,000 beds in the resort.
On the right-hand side of the ski area of La Rosiere you will find the Village des Eucherts. Here there are plenty of self-contained chalets and small hotels, and the village also has its own little lift network which links it to the rest of the resort and its own beginners’ area. There is a small shopping sector with ski hire shops and more, plus the (free shuttle) bus stops at various points around Eucherts, which makes getting around to the main centre of the resort really easy.
Hotels in La Rosiere
There is a good choice of hotels in La Rosiere in both the centre of the village and in the Les Eucherts area, and most are ski in – ski out if snow conditions allow. The majority of the village’s hotels are French owned and run and are competitively priced with regional French decor. With a range of two to five star accommodations available, there will be a hotel in La Rosiere for everyone’s budget.
Chalets in La Rosiere
La Rosiere is definitely the place to come if you want a choice of quality chalet accommodation. There are heaps of British run chalet companies to choose between, offering catered or self-catered options. Perhaps the chalet that stands out the most in terms of being that bit different is Chalet Matsuzaka in the Les Eucherts area, which has its own Japanese spa.
