Chalet Marron is converted barn that was our family home. It offers an spacious and private hideaway for families or groups of friends . Ideally suited for 8 people in 4 large rooms. We set up 'Tarentaise Properties' to rent this and other chalets in the area in 2016. Chalet Marron can sleep up to 12 if you are happy to share. Nestled in the hamlet of La Thuile just off the D902 which is the road that leads up to Val d'Isere and Tignes. La Thuile is between the village and the ski resort of Ste Foy Tarentaise. The ski resort and village can be accessed by shuttle bus which runs around every hour in the morning and evening . It takes around 5-10 minutes . The ski resorts of Val d'Isere and Tignes can be accessed via Tignes les Brevieres which is only 15 minutes away with free parking. La Plagne and Les Arcs can be accessed via Villaroger which has free parking just 10 minutes away. La Roisere is only 25 minutes. Bourg St Maurice is 15 minutes drive .

There is an 80m open plan room with 4m high ceilings. It has panoramic patio windows with balconies to the south and west. The main room features a modern kitchen, breakfast bar , dining table, large fireplace with plenty of comfortable seating and bean bags. The chalet is finished to a high standard with modern fixtures and fittings. We have included many extras to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

In the summer there is an additional apartment that sleeps up to 4 and a studio that sleeps to, so you can comfortably add more to your group. they are priced separately.

The owners are located just 10 minutes away in Seez . Hamish is a ski instructor and property renovator, and Tamsin has worked in the chalet business for 20 years. We hope between us that we can answer any question about any aspect of your holiday , from travel advice to ski areas.

About Sainte Foy

The Haute Tarentaise is one of the most famous ski areas in the world. Home to Val d' Isere, Tignes , Les Arcs , la Plagne , la Rosiere as well as the hidden gem of sainte Foy Tarentaise. You can access all of these resorts with a car in between 10 and 25 minutes. Our website gives you times and details of where you can find free parking as well as links to all the tourist sites.

In the summer the area comes alive with road bikers, downhill bikers , walkers and those that prefer the warm climate rather than the stifling heat of the cities. We still get days in the 30's in saint Foy , and its even hotter down in Bourg saint Maurice with the beautiful outside pool . All of the resorts lay on summer activities and entertainments as well for the whole family. Those that are super keen can even still ski on the glaciers Tignes and Val d'sere in the summer.

Walkers like to explore the area directly from the chalet or into the wider Vanoise national park. You can even drive up through la Rosiere and into Italy and pop over the boarder for a pizza and ice-cream for lunch

A car is recommended in the summer , but in the winter you can make use of the free navette that goes up to the ski station and our supermarket delivery service.
