We have a separate Kid's Den with Sky TV (terrestrial & free-to-view channels), candle-lit dining room, a sun trap south-facing terrace, garden, boules court and eight guest bedrooms sleeping up to twenty-four people.

At the Auberge all the meals are home-cooked using fresh, local produce and we take a pride in serving a variety of local dishes, as well as international cuisine. Vegetarians are well catered for by Andy Mac, himself a vegetarian, who is a qualified Cordon Vert chef, and we are happy to cater for other special dietary needs with advance notice.
Breakfast is a buffet style feast, offering orange juice, a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, freshly baked hot croissants and bread with home-made marmalade, jams, and local honey, washed down with freshly brewed tea, herbal teas or coffee.
We don't serve lunch at the Auberge but we are happy to prepare packed lunches on request.
In the winter season, come back to a roaring log fire and après-ski tea with freshly-baked cakes or biscuits. We serve an early children's supper so they can go to bed or watch a movie whilst you tuck in to a sumptuous 3-course dinner, served with our quality A.O.C. house wines, followed by coffee - all included in your holiday price. We have an extensive (and ever expanding!) collection of fine wines in our cellar should you prefer something different. One night each week we do not provide dinner and ask you to eat out at one of the many local restaurants.
In the summer we offer a different 3 course dinner each evening which is included in our half board price.We serve local specialities such as raclette and fondues, as well as international dishes. Our wine cellar is well-stocked with wines which we purchase ourselves direct from the growers, from which guests can choose to sample the local Vins de Savoie or select wines from all over France. An early children's supper is available on request.

Rooms 1, 6, 7 and room 8 are family rooms with ensuite bathrooms, which can comfortably accommodate a family of four or five. Rooms 3 and 4 share a bathroom, making it an ideal suite for families or friends. Room 2 has an ensuite bath room and Room 5 has an ensuite shower room. Both are twin/doubles.

Attractions:In winter, our position in the middle of everywhere gives you the most fantastic choice of winter sports resorts! Some of our guests choose to ski a different resort each day; others choose to ski the world famous Val d'Isère-Tignes circuit without paying world famous resort prices or enduring world famous resort commercialisation! The off-piste paradise of Sainte Foy is uncrowded and the powder can last untracked for days. It's also a perfect place for children and beginners as well as for a relaxing ski holiday away from the crowds. You can drive to the Espace Killy in 20 minutes at Tignes Les Brevieres and to the Les Arcs area in 15 minutes at Villaroger. La Rosière with it's link to the Italian La Thuile, one of the few remaining heli-ski sites in Europe, is just 30 minutes away.

There is also a vast range of other activities to keep you busy.
