Featured among the ‘coolest chalets in the Alps’ in a national newspaper, the Frantze is a very popular place to stay in a stunning location.
Sitting on a short track just off the Pistone piste which runs from the top of the main gondola in Champoluc down to the village centre, the Rascard Frantze is a wonderful blend of traditional pine and stone with luxurious features. What makes the chalet extra special is that access is via the main gondola so you’ll be skiing from the minute you arrive in Champoluc and your luggage will be taken by skidoo. Francesca, the manager, will be there to welcome you with a hot tea or a liqueur and you can enjoy the roaring open fire and wonderful food that Rascard Frantz is renowned for.
Rascard Frantz is available to book by the room or exclusive hire for larger groups or families. We recommend that anyone looking to stay at the chalet can comfortably ski a red run as access to Champoluc village is by the Pistone piste. The main gondola runs until 11:30pm every evening leaving you plenty of time to explore the village, its restaurants and nightlife before you head back in the evening.
Because of the location of this property, please call our office before you book your flights so that we can arrange a hassle free transfer for you and your luggage.
