Discover La Rosière from your OVO Network chalet

Explore France and Italy when you stay in La Rosière! In summer, you can drive across the border via the Petit Saint-Bernard pass, enjoying fabulous views of Mont Blanc, and when the road is closed in winter, you can ski over for lunch.

There’s plenty of choice for skiers of all levels - good snowfall and panoramic views are pretty much guaranteed, and the La Rosière village’s south-facing slopes are bathed in sunshine. 

The resort is divided into two main areas - the traditional village of La Rosiere and the newer area of Les Eucherts, where most of the chalet are to be found. Popular with families, you'll also find great bars and restaurants as well as ski hire and a great lift service.

In summer, the area becomes a mountain playground, with Europe’s highest golf course, great hiking, biking and trail running. Sitting high above the Tarentaise valley, you'll enjoy wonderful views over to Les Arcs. Children will love the Plan de L’Arc sports area, which features a lake as well as picnic and barbecue areas so that you can stay all day.

Choose from our selection of our hand-picked La Rosière chalets to enjoy all this and more.

What to do in La Rosière in winter

With the steep slopes of Mont Valaisan for advanced skiers, the sunny pistes of the resort for those who prefer to take it easy and themed pistes for children, La Rosière (1850m) is a resort for everyone. The village is in the French/Italian Espace San Bernardo ski area, which means you can ski over the border for lunch - a real treat for foodies!

The area’s location means it makes the top 10 French ski resorts for snowfall every year. Get a different perspective on the pistes by trying paragliding, snow-kiting or cross-border heli-skiing!

What to do in La Rosière in summer

Just 8km from the Italian border, you’ve got two countries to discover when you stay in La Rosière. The Petit Saint-Bernard pass is always closed in winter, but when the snow melts, it’s a stunning drive or cycle to visit La Thuile, famed for its chocolate shops, or the Roman monuments of the Aosta valley.

La Rosière’s Alpine meadows and forests are the backdrop to some wonderful walks and cycles, but there are plenty of other activities to try - canyoning, rafting and riding to name just a few.
