I have visited Frantze together with my girlfriend and friends two times now - both in July - and we absolutely love it! The chalet is decorated to perfection, the rooms are great, so is the food and the service is top notch. This is the perfect place for hiking, relaxation and enjoying time with friends or family.

Came here for lunch after mornings skiing. I had pasta bolognaise, it was delicious however the pasta a little undercooked. The service was fast as well. The restaurant is very hidden within the piste so it is quite hard to find. I would really recommend this restaurant.

Enjoy lunch inside (or outside on sunny terrace) this beautiful old chalet made with love. The cheese and mixed cold meats plate is well well worth it's price of 9 Euros. I had a great Spaghetti Carbonara med lots of egg yolk and also asparagus sprouts. In the evening they offer (if you book in advance) an excellent three course... More

Not quite on the "home run" in Champoluc this hidden restaurant is fantastic for some hearty Aosta Valley fayre. We had a variety of dishes between us and all were fantastic, washed down with a glass of beer! You will need to be a failry good skier to get back onto the piste after your lunch but well worth it.

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 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

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 !!!
