About Us

At Mountainsun France we specialise in accommodation in prime skiing locations. Our chalets are in Tignes, Les Coches (La Plagne), Villaroger (Les Arcs) and La Rosiere.

We are staffed by keen skiers and snowboarders with the aim of delivering great value to our guests. We take pride in providing a high level of service and many of our guests return to stay at our chalets again and again.

Mountainsun was formed in 2002 and we have spent 15 years developing our business. In September 2017 we re-structured Mountainsun Ltd and now operate as two companies, Mountainsun France Ltd and Dolomitesun Ltd. This change will enable us to improve future services to our guests, with more effective focus on individual localities. Our aspirations remain unchanged and both companies continue to work in friendly co-operation to provide the quality chalet stays for which we have become renowned.
