La Cachette is an authentic alpine chambre & table d'hôte, built over the two lower floors of Chalet la Source and sleeping up to 8 people. It is a lovingly restored 18th century village house at 1200m altitude. It can be rented in its entirety as well as by room.
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.
"Lake" is a double bedroom on the lower level, at the corner of the house with a south-facing window at street level. This blue & white dressed room is light and comfortable.
The room is simply decorated in soft plaster and wood. The bed is a luxury sprung mattress and divan dressed with feather bedding and pure cotton bedclothes. Each bedroom has a shower, washbasin and radiator.
The guests' private living area is available for more space and relaxation, about @35m2. On the upper level, it has an entry onto a 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 kitchenette (microwave, 4-ring hob, fridge, dishwasher, table and chairs). A wood insert stove heats the whole space and we light it for you during the afternoon in winter.

Evening meals may be booked separately. We offer either full dinners or 'take-away' main dishes (brought to you in La Cachette), so you can choose the level and amount of catering you would like to enjoy during your stay.
We prepare our dishes freshly with 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 may be booked separately. Olivier can add joy, economy and ski technique to your holiday - offering relief from logistics, adding local knowledge, ski tips and exploring new territories! It is a surprisingly economical choice and we can offer a discount on accommodation to guests who have booked Olivier for 5 or more 1/2 or full days.
We are more than happy to help with arrangements for all aspects of your stay, just tell us what you need.
