Where is La Rosiere?

La Rosiere can be found in the heart of the French Alps, in the territory of the charming commune of Montvalezan in the Savoie department. Located in the centre of the famous Haute-Tarentaise ski region, it is also close to the Italian and Swiss borders with guests regularly taking trips to skiing areas in the neighbouring countries. 

 

The La Rosiere resort has a rich history, with French mountaineer Henri Duhamel credited with taking to the region’s slopes for the first time in the late 1800s. 

 

In 1920, a group of young skiers founded the ‘Union Sportive de Montvalezan’ society which was dedicated to avoiding skiing activities in the area. This continued for decades before the first-ever downhill skiing events took place in the 1950s.  

 

Up until this point, farming had been the dominant industry in the area and there was only a small amount of residential chalets in La Rosiere. However, this changed in the 1960s as hotels, chalets, ski lifts, bars and restaurants started to be built in order to accommodate visitors who wanted to take to the slopes. 

 

And, in 1985, an agreement was made with Italy to allow guests to cross the border and enjoy the skiing opportunities there too.  

 

These days, La Rosiere is one of the most vibrant, lively and popular resorts in the whole of the Alps.

 

Getting to La Rosiere is extremely straightforward with the help of Alpine Fleet, so let’s take a look at exactly how you can get there.  

How to get to La Rosiere

Usually, La Rosiere, and the whole of the Espace San Bernardo (France-Italy) ski region, has its ski season from December to April. 

 

Ski transfers from Geneva Airport to La Rosiere is our recommended route to the resort, as they provide comfort, convenience and simply incredible views throughout the journey. 

 

While La Rosiere’s nearest airport is Chambery in France, by flying into Switzerland and Geneva you will be able to experience some of the Alps’ most stunning views on your journey to the resort. 

 

Plus, by using Alpine Fleet’s airport transfers you will also receive a driver whose expertise and knowledge of the local area can keep you entertained and provide you with recommendations along the way.  

Best way to get to La Rosiere

As mentioned above, at Alpine Fleet we believe that Geneva Airport is the best airport for La Rosiere. While the journey may take you slightly longer (around two hours) than La Rosiere’s closest airport of Chambery, the spectacular mountain views you will experience along the way make it all worthwhile.

 

Let’s take a deeper look at flight and airport transfers to La Rosiere in the section below.

Flights and airport transfers to La Rosiere

As already mentioned, at Alpine Fleet we believe that ski transfers from Geneva Airport to La Rosiere are the best choice. 

 

If you choose this option, then you’ll next need to choose between a shared or private transfer. 

 

A shared transfer will see you share a vehicle with others who are also heading to the resort, with frequent trips made to and from Geneva Airport. 

 

There are two main types of shared transfers which are as follows:


  • Fixed point shared transfers – A fixed point shared transfer will see you be picked up and dropped off in a pre-agreed location. Once the vehicle has left Geneva Airport, you will then make many stops at locations across La Rosiere and neighbouring resorts ensuring you are always dropped off close to your accommodation.
  • Door to door shared transfers – Alternatively, you could opt for a door to door service. This option will follow the same route as the fixed point shared transfers but will also feature a last minute minivan transfer that will take you directly to the door of your accommodation.

 

While we’d always recommend flying into Geneva Airport, if you prefer we also offer private transfers from Chambery, Grenoble and Lyon.

Other transport options

While airport transfers are undoubtedly the most convenient choice, there are alternative transport options if you prefer.

 

These include:

Train to La Rosiere

If you’re conscious of the environment and want to use public transport, then using the train is a great choice.

 

The closest train station to La Rosiere is Bourg-Saint-Maurice which is located around 20km away from the resort. From here, you can then get a bus from the train station which will take you to the resort itself. 

 

Usually, you can get direct trains to Bourg-Saint-Maurice from the UK, France, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy.

Drive to La Rosiere

You can also drive to La Rosiere by booking a hire car at any of the airports you choose to fly into.

 

From Geneva Airport, it will take you around two hours to drive to La Rosiere, but you should be aware of the challenging mountain roads, unpredictable weather conditions and an unfamiliar route.

 

This is why we always advise using an airport transfer with experienced drivers.

Coach and bus to La Rosiere

Regular buses run from Bourg-Saint-Maurice train station to La Rosiere on a daily basis. 

 

With this in mind, if you are considering buses or coaches, you should use the train in the first instance before hopping on a bus once you’ve arrived.
