Just back from a week at Frantze. It is really is a little gem. Francesa and her family are just delightful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The renovated "rascard" has combined the charm from its previous use as a small family farmhouse with modern day comfort. The bedrooms have everything you need and there is the added... More

Just returned from an amazing week in Champoluc staying at the Frantze le Rascard. This is an absolute gem of a place which has been lovingly restored by Francesca and her extended family. The family make you feel very special. Whilst the hotel is very sociable its easy to find privacy too. The homemade food is delicious and nothing is... More

Just off to the right of the main home slope into Champoluc, this is very easy to miss. You need to look out for the sign and make your way through the wooded area to find it. When you do you will not be disappointed. A very warm welcome awaits inside. Staff are friendly and a litre of their "house... More

Was a pleasure to sit outside at the unique stone table with the smells from the kitchen making your mouth water. This is a very special place and... More

Frantze is a beautifully restored rascard on the slopes in Champoluc. The rooms and sitting area are like a fairytale but most of all the hosts make this place extraordinary! Francesca and her family make you feel like you are staying with a good friend, and that is how we see them: as very good friends !!!

We stayed here in the summer so I can't comment on the place if you're on a skiing holiday but I can imagine that it's even more magical when covered in a blanket of snow. To get here, we left our car in the free car park in Champoluc and took the cable car up the mountain (about five minutes)... More

I'm used to come to Champoluc especially in Summer and this restaurant is one of my favourite. You can reach it both walking on hiking path no. 13 (about 45 min.) or via cable car (10 minutes and then 5 minute walk). The location is quiet, wonderful panorama and excellent food. Owners are amongst the kindest people I have ever... More

We have just returned from our third wonderful stay at this gem of a hotel/chalet above Champoluc and had a fabulous welcome surpassed only by the care and attention to every detail during the week. The food is home cooking at its best, the wines are local and good value, and advice on them is excellent. The rooms are full... More

They are all local and are passionate and immensely knowledgeable about the area and their hotel. Breakfasts were generous, with delicious coffee and fresh pastries... More
