The apartments of Résidence Les Chalets de la Ramoure are, as the name suggests, spread over several large chalets. These are built in a traditional style, from wood and natural stone. The apartments are located just outside the centre of Valfréjus, but right on the slopes and next to the 'Charmasson' ski lift.
The apartments are spacious and attractively furnished. Do you wish for a delicious fresh breakfast every morning? Then use the bread service and enjoy freshly baked bread rolls, which are already waiting for you at the reception. That's a good start to the day!
With the ski bus, which stops next to the residence, you can reach the lively centre with its many bars and restaurants within a few minutes. Enjoy the extensive French cuisine here or stroll through the picturesque streets.
The bar at Residence Turra does not accept credit cards, only cash.
Valfréjus is a small and cosy ski resort in the Mauriennedal, close to the Italian border. The 70km ski area mainly consists of blue runs, but also offers excellent off-piste opportunities for the more advanced skier.
The village sits at 1550m and two lifts will take you to the Plateau d’Arrondaz station. There you can take the Punta Bagna gondla to the highest point within the region at 2737m. From here there is a beautiful back slope and many off-piste opportunities to take you back to the Plateau. For those looking for even more excitement, there is a boardercross and 2 bobsled downhill runs of 2km. There is also the opportunity to heli-ski across the border in Italy for a truly unique experience.
