Situated in the Savoie Grand Revard area, which is sometimes referred to as ‘little Canada’ due to the similarities in landscape, the resort of La Féclaz is known for its tranquillity, beautiful scenery, wonderful slopes and value for money.
Nestled 30 minutes (by car) from Chambéry Airport or just over an hour (by car) from Lyon or Geneva airport, its 26 km of pistes and 149 km of trails make it ideal for young families, those new to the sport and cross-country skiers.
La Féclaz comprises a range of accommodation, many restaurants and bars plus an attractive church and some small craft stores, all of which create a welcoming, friendly and traditional atmosphere. Its smaller size means it attracts lots of locals; guests will feel as though they have left the UK, can practise their French and experience an authentic stay.
It is also the ideal place to visit for an all-round winter trip to the Alps because visitors can choose from a wide range of activities including snow shoeing and husky sledding to Nordic skiing and a bobsleigh track. Plus, it even has a biathlon course for those after a fun competition combining cross-country skiing and marksmanship.
Les Chalets du Berger Premium are located in the heart of La Féclaz, close to the pistes, shops, services and amenities; guests can enjoy a hassle-free holiday.
All of the chalets (sleeping up to eight people) are built in a classic wooden-style with either balconies or terraces offering incredible views across the snowy peaks. Alternatively, a heated pool and warming sauna in the complex help loosen those leg muscles after a day on skis or a snowboard.
Inside Les Chalets du Berger Premium, families, groups of friends and couples can cook delicious Savoyard-style food in the fully-equipped kitchen, relax in the spacious living area where a big-screen TV and a selection of board games can be found and sing along – or even dance – to music played through the Bluetooth speakers.
Because the accommodation is within strolling distance of the food shops, guests can also purchase fresh, local and tasty ingredients to dine on during their holiday. Alternatively, the excellent selection of restaurants serving delectable French, Italian and European cuisine are ideal for the perfect evening.
Or, for a night out closer to home, grab a drink and head to the reception area, where a sociable space with Wi-Fi and a pool table awaits…
