“'Thanks Becky...!'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

We had an enjoyable stay at Petite Auberge for a weeks skiing in Les Arcs. Late booking and cost prompted us to look at Bourg St Maurice rather than the Arcs and we selected this hotel on the basis of its Trip Advisor recommendation. We were not disappointed!

Located on a quiet road, 1.5km from the centre of Bourg the hotel has a mix of different room sizes, all simply appointed, but with very comfortable beds, very clean, masses of hot water and nice towels! This is all down to Becky the manager, who is very nice, English, massively organised, does everything and makes sure all is how you’d like it. We stayed in a triple room, which was ‘friendly’ but easily manageable.

Becky offers a simple breakfast of juice, coffee, hot chocolate, bread and croissants. If you fancy supplementing this with your own cheese and meats then that’s just fine.

The hotel has an excellent local cuisine restaurant and reservations, through Becky, are necessary due to its popularity.

We would definitely go back to the hotel again, and are thinking about trying the summer for the mountain biking!

Just because we struggled to find much info about ‘how the skiing works’ out of Bourg here are a few tips for anyone else attempting this.

We were in a hire car so it took 3 mins to get to the free car park, next to the main station, where the funicular departed every 10 mins taking about the same time to ascend to Arc1600. You can access all other Arcs from 1600. Buy your ski passes at this base station and the electronic tag then gives you access to the funicular.

Think carefully about where you are likely to ski during your time there. You can get an ‘Arcs’ pass or the Paradiski which includes La Plagne. There are two Paradiski passes… Unlimited which gives you access all areas all week, or Discovery, which allows you to visit La Plagne on one day of your choice. Discovery will save you 40 euros on the pass over a week and lovely as the La Plagne slopes and glacier are, they take a couple of hours to get to only mad ski maniacs will get there more than once in a week. There’s more than enough skiing in the Arcs

I think you will be lucky to ever ski back to Bourg and the snowline for us was 1600.

Great skiing in the Arcs on and off piste and the Parcs are fun. Try the ‘water skiing’ at your peril, it looks easy, but take a change of clothes, as if you get it wrong your ski boots are full of water all day! Nicest red slopes for us were off the top of the Derby lift.

Places to eat up the mountain… Chalet de L’Arc in 1950 is amazing food (you must book unless you arrive after 2.30) we also liked Chalet de Luigi in 1950. If you come across a place called Enfant Terribles… go self serve, full serve is slow and so expensive!

We got the best ski package deal from Skimium in Bourg (I think they might also be in the Arcs as well) and we chose to take our equipment down the mountain everyday. I think you can pay for lockers in 1600 to keep your stuff there, but not sure if they are temperature controlled?

Plenty of restaurants in Bourg, and all we tried were reasonably priced. Ski Roc Café, next to the station, can be well recommended, eat in or take out, it’s always buzzing and serves burger/pizza/local dishes. Try the chocolate, banana and cream pizza! But don’t have a savoury one first! Other places we tried and liked in Bourg were… The Hotel, Grenier Des 5 Lacs, (next to Ski Roc) and Fasty Fooding (I kid you not!)

We went midweek and drove to Bourg from Geneva arriving on Easy and it’s about a 2hr drive. Grenoble is closer ( limited flying days with Ryanair) and if you go out and back on a weekend Eurostar will take you all the way to Bourg. Walk across the bridge and you are on the funicular!

Happy skiing!

Becky runs a wonderful family-friendly hotel. Our rooms was clean and comfortable, as was the small but adequate ensuite bathroom. The Petite Auberge has an air of convivial charm and I recommend it for young families wanting to make the most of their budget. Parking is available and a car recommended for the location, which is perfect for all the local ski resorts. The adjoining restaurant is highly regarded locally for very good reason - the food is fantastic (I recommend the cheese fondue!) and they offer exceptionally friendly service, with both young and old made to feel very welcome. The hotel breakfast was excellent too, great bread and croissants.

Room Tip: Rooms 17 and 19 sleep families of four in a cosy style

Myself and 4 other friends stopped at La Petite this week for 4 nights which we used as a base for our Motorcycling holiday in the French,Swiss & Italian Alps.The Hotel is well situated for this purpose and the rooms were comfortable and sizeable enough for our needs.We didnt use the restaurant however the food and service looked good.The town is approx a 15 minute walk away and has a selection of bars and restaurants.
We had breakfast in the hotel on one day which was a traditional french breakfast of Fresh bread and croissants which was lovely and fresh.
Our only observation was the lack of a lounge and a bar area to sit at the end of a busy day to kick back and reminiss of the daily events with a drink or a nice coffee (although we were able to use the dining room for this purpose,but not quite the same) Overall we were pleased with our stay and would recommend it to other bikers and the like as they are a bike friendly hotel.Becky is lovely and nothing was too much trouble for her (She even got the hose pipe out and a bucket of soapy water so we could wash our bikes)

My friend and I stayed here in December for a few days skiing. Bourg Saint Maurice is a good location if you want to ski at Les Arcs, but are looking for less expensive accommodation to what you would pay in the the resort. If you have a car, then Tignes, Sainte Foy and other resorts are all in striking distance. The hotel is excellent value. The rooms are basic, but very clean (our beds were made every day). Our room had a new, excellent shower. It's a little bit out of town, so you really need your own vehicle. The staff were really friendly. The free wi fi was reliable and fast. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for the price.
