Situated in the pretty hamlet of St. Jaques at the head of the Ayas Valley, the Residence Bettaforca opened in January 2004.

Built as a ‘residence’, the rooms are apartment-style ideal for those wishing to self-cater or eat out in the evenings – meals are not included in our prices for this property.

Each apartment varies in size and shape and sleeps between 2 and 8 people. All have a fully equipped kitchen with small dining area. Each apartment has a bathroom and all have colour TV.

The residence has limited communal areas with a reception, small TV lounge, gym (with a limited supply of fitness equipment) and a small sauna. There is covered car parking for those arriving by car.

The hamlet of St. Jaques has another hotel with bar, together with a small shop, a sports shop and 2 restaurants (one in a nearby hotel). Ski 2 staff are available to provide transfers to restaurants in Champoluc.

The property is a 2 minute drive from the bottom of the Frachey chair lift, one of the two lifts that rise form Champoluc to the ski area. The area accessed immediately at the top of the Frachey lift is better suited to intermediate and advanced skiers. Please note that all ski lessons with the Ski 2 school start from the Crest at the top of the gondola from the centre of Champoluc village and that we currently have no ski deposit facilities at the bottom of the Frachey lift.

Transfers between the Bettaforca and the bottom of the main lift in Champoluc will be provided by Ski 2 staff each morning and afternoon.
