The village of La Féclaz offers a different experience to many of the larger and more modern ski resorts of the Alps. This village is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of neighbouring regions. Situated in the heart of the Bauges Mountains, less than 20 km from Chambery and Aix les Bains, La Féclaz provides visitors with peace and quiet and some stunning scenery. Whichever chalet you stay in, you will have breath-taking views of the snowy mountainous surroundings and the thick pine forests from Les Chalets du Berger’s position in the north of La Féclaz. With easy access to all of the bars, restaurants and other facilities and amenities of the town, the chalets are the ideal place for those wanting to relax. The resort itself has an excellent selection of restaurants and a cosy atmosphere, meaning it is somewhat limited when it comes to après ski, however, still provides plenty to keep visitors occupied.

The Ski Area
The La Féclaz ski area is perfect for beginners and children, with two green slopes, five blue slopes, five red slopes and two black slopes to choose from. Located at an altitude of 1250m to 1550m, the ski season runs from December to February in La Féclaz. Those wanting to enjoy more than just downhill skiing will find the resort located within France's most popular cross country ski area, Savoie Grand Revard, which boasts 140km of cross country skiing, and 50km of alpine tracks through pine forests. The area is celebrated for the high quality of its ski field which consists of two black, one green, four red and four blue slopes, enabling the resort to cater to both beginners and experienced skiers. As well as this, there is a fun filled children’s area, which make Savoie Grand Revard a particularly popular choice for family holidays.
Away from the ski slopes, guests can enjoy a full range of winter activities in this resort, such as ski joering, which involves being pulled through the beautiful landscape on your skis, behind a horse. Keen hikers can enjoy the scenery by snow shoeing through the forests and meadows of the Alps, with more than 60km of snow shoe tracks on offer. Children will love fun sledging and toboggan runs, and other thrilling activities include dog sledging, snowmobiling and snow boarding.
