Alpine chalet with log fire
from £134 /night help
Chalet | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Our chalet is in the charming ski village of La Foux d'Allos, in the Southern French Alps. With access to 230km of piste runs and incredible off-piste, this is one of the largest ski areas in France. The village and ski lifts are in easy walking distance from the chalet.
Back in January 1988, we had our first family ski holiday in the resort of La Foux d'Allos. What struck us on the first day, and is still true today, is how friendly all the locals were and what good value the village was. Many of the people that we met on that first trip are still friends today.
The chalet offers excellent accommodation for the family, it's very close to the slopes and in the perfect location for winter and summer use. There is a balcony which is a lovely spot for lunch on a warm day and the views down the valley are spectacular.

The Provence region
Situated in the beautiful Parc National du Mercantour, La Foux d'Allos is a ski resort with a difference.
Forget concrete apartment blocks and ugly development, La Foux d'Allos is a quaint mountain village with wooden chalets and a bustling market square. There is a strong community made up of the people who live here all year round and a friendly attitude towards holidaymakers.
At 1800m above sea level, the ski area has one of the best snow records in France - this year we made the French national news for having the most snow in France, over 3 metres!
The ski area includes over 230km of piste runs and even more off-piste. La Foux d'Allos is part of the Espace Lumiere, which is made up of Val d'Allos (La Foux, Le Seignus) and PraLoup. With all this on your doorstep, skiers of all abilities will find plenty to enjoy. There is an excellent ski school (ESF) offering lessons for all levels and the snow creche (Club Piou Piou) is on hand to look after the little ones while you enjoy a day to yourself.
In the summer, the village is bustling with walkers, cyclists and people looking to escape the searing heat of the French Riviera. The Mercantour National Park covers a vast area (68,500 ha) and reaches as far south as the Alpes Maritime and the Italian border. Home to 58 species of mammal, including wolves, 153 species of bird and 200 species of rare and endangered plants.
Local villages such as the fortified Colmars les Alpes have weekly markets and draw visitors from all over France and Europe. Walkers will enjoy exploring GR routes such as the circuit du Lac d'Allos (at 2220m, it's the largest high altitude glacial lake in Europe).
