La Rosiere, Montvalezan
(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
La Rosiere touts views of Les Arcs and 150 km (93 mi) of pistes close to Italy's border. Dozens of red, blue, and black slopes make this a good base for intermediate skiers. The area is also rich in history: on the high piste sits Redoute Ruinée, a border fort built in the 1890s and used to defend France against invading forces during World War I. It was strengthened in World War II, and a force of 47 men defended it against multiple attacks from Italy. Hannibal is thought to have marched his elephants through this area, and the Saint Bernard breed of dog takes its name from the chapel that rests on its col. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Rosiere and many more Montvalezan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Montvalezan trip itinerary builder.

  • We rent only in summer, to meet family. In praising the summer to the balconies of la Rosière, we enjoy the ice free, hammam, sauna and jacuzzi. There is on-site in apartments sheets, towels, and you need to do this meal. We go every year a good week. The children are from 4 to 18 years. This year surprise the Baker of the balconies made a gluten free bread to delicious corn, which keeps well! the top when you're intolerant to gluten!

  • Nice resort, not far from the Italian border (through the little St Bernard pass). Very nice summer with many possible hikes and lots of activities organized by the tourist office.
