The purpose-built, La Rosière is the most low-key resort in the Tarentaise Valley.
It lies at the same altitude as Val d’Isère and Courchevel (1,850 metres), but just doesn’t have the same crowds.
It is a great affordable destination for families, and for those who like the idea of popping over the border to Italy for pizza and pasta.
