La Rosiere is largely a modern resort so we feel very lucky to be able to offer this remarkable 150 year old traditional stone farm building has been lovingly restored, transforming it into a fabulous chalet. It’s a rare treat and what’s more it’s in a superb location – the main express lift only a 50 metre walk away, and you can ski back to with 20 metres of the chalet’s front door.
Chalet Epilobe is a warm and homely chalet that’s beautiful inside and out, offering a cosy interior with stylish contemporary design within; then looking out there are spectacular uninterrupted views across the valley, which you can enjoy from a lovely south facing balcony.

Meet your host
My name is Mariana, I am 25 years old and from Portugal. I moved to the UK about a year ago after graduating from University with an Engineering degree. I am currently working as a water engineer. It’s a role I enjoy, as my work improves people’s lives while preserving the environment.
As much as I love my job I feel I need to expand as a person and maximise my life experiences. That’s why I’m keen to try something very different from engineering. Since I started snowboarding when I was 17 years old an annual trip to the pistes has become mandatory, and the mountains are a place that I want to be!
As well as snowboarding, cooking is another of my passions. I’m a very happy person in the kitchen and a bit of a ‘foodie’.
Having technical expertise is vital in my everyday work, however soft skills are key to provide a good service as well. I value my career and what I have achieved so far and I feel experience with Mountain Heaven would be contributing to that while doing something I love!
Food & wine
To prepare you for your day on the mountain, for breakfast you can tuck into a selection of cereals, yoghurts, bread, jam, honey and porridge made to order. Daily changing hot options include freshly prepared eggs, fluffy pancakes, smoked salmon, French toast and full English. All served with Yorkshire tea, if you like it as much as we do, or a choice of herbal and fruit teas, coffee and hot chocolate.
On arrival back to your chalet afternoon tea will be ready and waiting for you with a changing range of freshly baked cakes along with a choice of hot drinks, what better way to feel truly spoilt.
Our menu is freshly prepared using seasonal ingredients to create a delicious wholesome three course evening meal, accompanied by our specially selected choice of wines, followed by freshly brewed coffee or tea.
We are always happy to provide an earlier evening meal of family favourites, just let us know their likes and dislikes and we will do the rest.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using local ingredients. If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it.

Our delicious wines are selected from France through the fantastic Le Verre Gourmand. A selection of red, white and rose wine has been handpicked for you to complement your meal and your taste buds. Here is the list of our fabulous wines for this season:
Rare Vineyards Blan de Blancs
This blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc gives a well rounded refreshing wine made in the Languedoc – Roussillon. The fresh, fruity aroma leads to citrus in the mouth with light acidity making it a great wine to enjoy before dinner.
Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc 2014
This wine is lip-smackingly fresh and crisp, You’ll find all the classic Sauvignon characteristics of lemon, lime and green grass, but there are hints of slightly riper fruit, too.
This is a great modern-style red blend from the South of France - full of juicy red and black fruit flavours, alongside a spot of spice and warmth. It's not too heavy, so it will work best alongside slightly lighter red meat dishes - or even poultry. The addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to the Grenache and Carignan gives the wine just a bit more ooomph, while retaining its easygoing character.
Les Roches Bleues
Bright red colouring with violet glints. A complex bouquet with aromas of blackberries, spices and toffee. Nice balance in the mouth thanks to the plant flavours, and subtle tannins. The finish lingers long on the black fruit, the spices and toffee aromas
Mas du Canal Rose
For refreshing, pale, dry, yet crisply fruity rose, look no further than this wine from the south of France. It is delightfully fresh and zingy on the palate, with bright red fruits (redcurrants, raspberries) lighting things up. It is seriously thirst-quenching stuff
Note: At the beginning of each season some of the wines may be unavailable and so we may substitute for other wines of equal quality
We understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family members have food allergies or special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater for your needs however most ski resorts simply do not offer the selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets.
In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday).
These are the products we can get at no additional charge:
Gluten Free Flour
Gluten Free Pasta
Gluten free cakes
Pulse and grains
For additional products such as dairy free spreads, soy yogurts, gluten free cereals and meat substitutes due to the high cost of these items in the Alps we make an additional charge of £20 per person in order to source the right ingredients for you. If you have any questions or concerns, we would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure we can get things just right for you.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using where ever possible local ingredients. If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it.
