La Cachette is an authentic alpine chambre & table d'hôte, in the upper and lower ground floors of Chalet la Source, a lovingly restored 18th century village house at 1200m altitude. It can be rented in its entirety (as per this listing) or by room. Sleeps 1-8p.
Excellently located for ski and snowboarding holidays, La Cachette is 5 mins from Sainte Foy, 10 mins from Villaroger - Les Arcs (Paradiski), 10 mins from Tignes Les Brevières (Espace Killy), 20 mins from Val d'Isère village, 20 mins from Tignes le Lac and 25 mins from La Rosière/Italy. The town of Bourg Saint Maurice is 20 mins away. A free shuttle bus goes from the village to Sainte Foy.
The 3 bedrooms, nestled in the heart of the house and furnished with luxury sprung mattresses, almost guarantee a good night's undisturbed sleep. "Berry", a twin or superking room (1-2pp), is on the upper level, with "Lake", a double room (1-2p), and "Leaf", a king double and/or family room (1-4p), on the lower level. They are simply furnished and decorated in soft plaster and wood. The bedding is feather, the linen pure, crisp cotton. Each bedroom has a shower, washbasin and radiator.
Our guests' living area, of about 35m2, is spacious, comfortable and practical. There is a sunny balcony with street access, a comfortable seating area (2 sofas, 2 giant beanbags, a leather armchair, coffee table, WiFi, flat screen+dvd, books, games, films) and a well-equipped kitchenette (microwave, 4-ring hob, fridge, dishwasher, table and chairs). A wood insert stove heats the whole space with beauty. We light the fire for you during the afternoon in winter.

Evening meals - choose full dinners or 'take-away' main dishes (brought to you in La Cachette) - giving you freedom to decide the level of catering during your stay. We prepare our meals using fresh, quality, local produce - organic or sustainably farmed wherever possible - and the menu is prepared after discussion with you. The nearest restaurants are in Sainte Foy village and resort.
Ski instruction/guiding - Olivier can add joy and ski technique to your holiday - offering relief from logistics, group coordination, and help with local knowledge, restaurants, gear and discovering new territories! A private instructor can be a surprisingly economical choice and we offer a 5-10% discount on accommodation to guests booking Olivier for 5 (or more) 1/2 or full days.
