Chalet Tarine

Character chalet in the heart of beautiful

Les Échines-Dessous, a village which maintains its authentic alpine charm yet still has easy access to some of the best skiing and cycling in France.

Les Échines-Dessous - Haute Tarentaise

Chalet Tarine is situated in the heart of the beautiful  Les Échines-Dessous (alt.1230M). A sunny south facing Tarentaise village overlooking the ski resorts of Les Arcs, La Plagne, Saint Foy and La Rosière. A 12 minute drive (6KM) down at Bourg Saint Maurice is the fast funicular access, just 7 minutes, to LES ARCS 1600 and the PARADISKI.


In Winter this chalet also provides unique, high quality character accommodation for adventurous skiers who want the flexibility to ski several top French ski resorts all in the same week.  In Summer, it's the perfect base for numerous alpine activities, everything from white water rafting, parapenting, kayaking, cycling, climbing or hiking.  Or simply savour the relaxed picturesque mountain village with its local traditions and way of life.


Les Échines-Dessous is one of the Tarentaise villages known as the ‘Versant Soleil’ (Sun Facing Slope), which are renowned locally for their extraordinary microclimate. Its sunny aspect complements all seasons; both bright and protected in Winter and with an almost Mediterranean warmth in Summer.  The local town of Bourg Saint Maurice provides numerous shops and restaurants, several large supermarkets, and the international railway station with its adjacent funicular to LES ARCS.

This was definitely the nicest chalet we've stayed in over the last 10 years" JS Feb 2011
