The Auberge sur la Montagne is a spacious catered chalet decorated in a harmonious mix of contemporary and traditional design.
Our large lounge with its 200 year old wooden beams has comfy sofas, a fully stocked bar and a huge fireplace. It has been styled in colours that reflect the local scenery - slate grey, sky blue and snowy white. Our candle-lit dining room has been decorated in tones of cool grey with contemporary bright accent colours.
We have a separate Kid's Den with squashy bean-bags and Sky TV (terrestrial & free-to-view channels), a sun trap south-facing terrace and garden, boules court and 5 guest bedrooms sleeping up to 15 in the main chalet, with additional accommodation for 6 in the adjoining Garden Wing.
We have a state-of-the-art outdoor hot tub and sauna installed in the garden. A great way to relax after a hard day on the piste!
The Auberge has five spacious, comfortable guest bedrooms sleeping up to fifteen people in the main chalet. For larger groups there is additional accommodation for 6 people in the 3 rooms of the adjoining Garden Wing.

At the Auberge all the meals are freshly home-cooked by Will, our highly talented, creative, professional chef using fresh, local produce. He takes a pride in serving a mix of local dishes and international cuisine.
Vegetarians are well catered for by Andy Mac, himself a vegetarian, who is a qualified Cordon Vert chef, and we are happy to cater for other special dietary needs with advance notice.
Breakfast is a buffet style feast, offering orange juice, a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, freshly baked hot croissants and bread with home-made marmalade, jams, and local honey, washed down with freshly brewed tea, herbal teas or coffee.
We don't serve lunch at the Auberge but we are happy to prepare packed lunches on request.
In the winter season, come back to a roaring log fire and après-ski tea with freshly-baked cakes or biscuits. We serve an early children's supper so they can go to bed or watch a movie whilst you tuck in to a sumptuous 3-course dinner, served with our quality A.O.C. house wines, followed by coffee - all included in your holiday price. We have an extensive (and ever expanding!) collection of fine wines in our cellar should you prefer something different. One night each week we do not provide dinner and ask you to eat out at one of the many local restaurants.
In the summer we offer a different 3 course dinner each evening which is included in our half board price. We serve local specialities such as raclette and fondues, as well as international dishes. Our wine cellar is well-stocked with wines which we purchase ourselves direct from the growers, from which guests can choose to sample the local Vins de Savoie or select wines from all over France. An early children's supper is available on request.
Our bar is very well stocked and has one of the most extensive collections of Scotch whiskies in France.
We are in one of the most easterly and spectacularly beautiful parts of France, in the Alps right up against the Italian border. As well as resorts the Petit St Bernard and Col de l’Iseran mountain passes are open in the summer.
The Auberge sur la Montagne is situated at La Thuile, at 1250 metres altitude just off the RD902 road between Bourg St Maurice and Val d'Isère. We are just 3kms from Sainte Foy ski resort (served by our free shuttle bus service), and a short drive from Les Arcs, Tignes, Val d'Isere and La Rosiere, giving you plenty of choice of ski terrain.
