The Space

One Bedroom Apartment 45M2 plus Private Terrace/Garden

Space for occasional guests.

Car Required : 12 Minutes drive from the Bourg St Maurice Funicular (4 miles/6km) Les Arcs - Paradiski

This lovely one bedroom apartment was converted from the living accommodation on the ground floor of the original old stone farmhouse, 'Chalet Tarine'. It is extremely spacious and has a bright south facing aspect with a sunny terrace. There are pleasant views of the village to the mountains beyond from both the bedroom and the living room windows.

The apartment kitchen has a hand made table, big enough to entertain several guests and there is a very unusual working stone fireplace in the living room. There's a sofa and comfy chair, TV and DVD. The kitchen area is well fitted out with modern oven/hob and dishwasher.

The bedroom has a hand crafted double bed along with a single bed, there is also a camp bed available. The bedroom has a mellow old wooden ceiling with beams. The bathroom is a particular feature with an extraordinary bath set in large alpine stone. There is a separate shower, basin and WC.

The apartment is accessed by its own external front door, the original front door from this charming old village house. A cosy and economical mountain home for the Ski Season, with the flexibility to have friends/family to stay, or a weekend 'Pied en Mountain' from where you can ski the whole Tarentaise, Les Arcs, La Plagne, La Rosiere, St Foy, Val D'Isere & Tignes.
Chalet Tarine is situated in a south facing Tarentaise village overlooking the ski resort 'LES ARCS'. The bottom of the 'LES ARCS' funicular is in Bourg Saint Maurice, a 10-15 minute drive from the Chalet (6km). This is where you park and buy your ski pass and begin and end your days skiing.

The funicular takes 7 minutes and at its summit is 'Arc 1600' , from where you can ski the huge Les Arcs ski area, this includes the villages of Villaroger, Peisney Vallendry, plus Arc 1800, Arc 1950, and Arc 2000.

Les Arcs is easily big enough to keep you busy all week, but the extraordinary double decker Vanoise Express cable car connects Les Arcs directly to the 10 resorts and villages that form the vast 'LA PLAGNE' ski area.

Together 'Les Arcs' and 'La Plagne' form a 400KM ski area known as 'PARADISKI,' one of the largest ski areas in the world.

Chalet Tarine is situated in the heart of the beautiful and authentic Les Échines-Dessous (alt.1230M). A sunny south facing Tarentaise village overlooking the ski resorts of Les Arcs, La Plagne, Saint Foy and La Rosière. A 10 minute drive (6KM) down at Bourg Saint Maurice is the fast funicular access (7 Mins) to Les Arcs 1600, where you can ski the enormous PARADISKI area.

Summer

In late Spring the villages of the Tarentaise region come alive. Their breathtaking views change as the snow melts and the abundant wild flowers cover the mountain sides. As Spring rolls into Summer the long warm days and cool nights make it a perfect place to visit in even the hottest months. With mountain biking, golf, hiking, White Water Rafting, Climbing, Parapenting and even Summer Skiing, the Tarentaise should appeal to the most active person.

But the unique charm and character of the mountain villages makes them a truly magical place to simply relax and soak up the atmosphere. They're not purpose built holiday resorts; they are living, breathing villages where traditional alpine lifestyle's survive.

The small farms raise the ‘Tarine’ cows, a hardy fawn coloured beauty specially adapted to a high altitude life. The exceptional and unspoilt diet of the Tarine cows can be tasted in the cheese made from their milk. It’s collected daily from the village to make creamy Beaufort, often called the king of Gruyere. Many local farms still keep a variety of animals and on up from Les Échines-Dessous at 2000m there's a small goat farm at the 'Forte De la Platte', still producing unique hand made cheese using age old traditions. The breath taking '5 Lakes' walk starts from the fort and takes around 2 hours.

The Cormet de Roseland, which passes below the village, provides the spectacular setting for a famous stage of 'The Tour De France'. Along this route towards Beaufort lies the extaordinary L'aiguille des glaciers, part of the Tour du Mont-Blanc, a protected vallee only accessible in Summer that retains it's glacier snow thoughout the year. A hearty alpine meal can be enjoyed at Auberge de La Nova , a beautiful twenty minute drive from Les Échines-Dessous

Winter - Season Rental Only - 1st December to 30th April.
£4750 Winter Season plus £125 PCM bills

In Winter this chalet provides unique, high quality character accommodation for adventurous skiers who want the flexibility to ski several top French ski resorts all in the same week.

'Rez de Jardin' at Chalet Tarine is situated in a south facing Tarentaise village overlooking the ski resort 'LES ARCS'. The bottom of the 'LES ARCS' funicular is in Bourg Saint Maurice, a 10-15 minute drive from the Chalet (6km). This is where you park and buy your ski pass and begin and end your days skiing.

The funicular takes 7 minutes and at its summit is 'Arc 1600' , from where you can ski the huge Les Arcs ski area, this includes the villages of Villaroger, Peisney Vallendry, plus Arc 1800, Arc 1950, and Arc 2000.

Les Arcs is easily big enough to keep you busy all week, but the extraordinary double decker Vanoise Express cable car connects Les Arcs directly to the 10 resorts and villages that form the vast 'LA PLAGNE' ski area.

Together 'Les Arcs' and 'La Plagne' form a 400KM ski area known as 'PARADISKI,' one of the largest ski areas in the world.

Les Échines-Dessous is one of the Tarentaise villages known as the ‘Versant Soleil’ (Sun Facing Slope), which are renowned locally for their extraordinary microclimate. Its sunny aspect complements all seasons; both bright and protected in Winter and with an almost Mediterranean warmth in Summer.

The local town of Bourg Saint Maurice provides numerous shops and restaurants, several large supermarkets, the international railway station with adjacent funicular to Les Arcs, and a lovely pedestrian high street with a colourful Saturday morning outdoor street market.

  • We had an incredible stay, couldn't recommend Tom's chalet more. We visited at the last weekend of the ski season, so were blessed with hot sun and heavy snow during our one week stay! The chalet is located up on the hill, in a group of other farm houses, a ten minute windy road from the town - stock up on food supplies before you get there (we didn't, and after a long drive were too tired to head out. oops!) Tom was a fantastic host, despite us not actually meeting him, and got back to us quickly when we arrived and had a question. The chalet itself is INCREDIBLE. Very spacious, finished to a high standard, warm, plenty of things to keep children occupied (also with a cot and high chair). Really can not say enough positive things here. Can't wait to return :)

  • This is the best renovated and furnished chalet I have been to. Very charming, comfortable and allowing privacy to a large group. Tom was extremely responsive and helpful with all our questions. The location is great, and we hope to be back end of the summer for hiking.

We have a lovely character chalet sleeping 10-12 people in the Tarentaise with some of the best skiing and most thrilling paragliding space in the French Alps. Very affordable, starting at under £100 per person per week. Luxury en suite bathrooms, fabulous views, short drive to ski lifts and take off points. Full details see (website hidden). Fantastic private hub for mountain enthusiasts. Chalet Tarine is available Saturday to Saturday . It is self-catered, large, characterful, well equiped and has five bedrooms, one with 4 single beds in (so you can sleep up to 12) We also have a lovely ground floor one bedroom apartment in the same chalet. Totally self contained with its own front door, we generally offer longer season rentals for this apartment, but shorter holidays can be arranged. The chalet is in a village 'Les Echines' 10-12 minutes drive (6km) up from Bourg St Maurice (on the sunny side). To ski, you drive down from the village to Bourg St Maurice, and catch the funicular from Bourg St Maurice up to Les Arcs 1600 (Paradiski). Bourg St Maurice has many shops, supermarkets and restuarants etc.
