Skiniks rents apartments in the French ski resort of La Rosière during the winter and summer seasons. La Rosière is a small village in the Tarentaise area of Savoie and is the last village in France on the road to the Little St Bernard Pass. La Rosière is a south-facing resort situated on a plateau at 1850m. It is on the other side of the valley from Les Arcs and is close to other resorts including Val d’Isère, Tignes, Ste Foy en Tarentaise and La Plagne.
La Rosière’s ski area connects with that of La Thuile in Italy, forming the Espace St Bernardo with over 170 km of pisted runs as well as extensive off-piste skiing opportunities. Its proximity to Mont Blanc provides fantastic snow conditions and, being south-facing, a lot of sunshine.
Alpniks provides accommodation in La Rosière all year round, allowing renters to experience how life in the mountains changes across different seasons. The Little St Bernard pass is typically open from June to November allowing access to La Thuile in Italy giving access to the Aosta Valley and Northern Italy. When the pass is open, La Rosière is also accessible via the Mont Blanc tunnel.
Whilst La Rosière has developed as a ski resort, it also has a vibrant summer season with a range of different activities available in the village as well as in the other villages and town in the valley. Although the village closes as a ski resort from the end of April until the summer season starts in late June and then again from early September until mid-December, our apartments are available for those looking to enjoy the peace of a mountain village. During these ‘interseasons’, some facilities remain open in La Rosière but there are more shops, bars and restaurants available in Bourg St Maurice in France and La Thuile in Italy.
Nick established Trustee Support Services with John Woolley. Between us, we have nearly 90 years’ experience in financial services.
Our aim is to assist trustees with the registration of their trusts on HMRC’s Trust Registration Service (TRS). Following a widening of the scope of the TRS effective from 1 September 2021, most trust are now required to be registered on the TRS with a deadline of 1 September 2022 or 90 days after the creation of the trust, whichever is the later. HMRC has indicated that they may fine or apply penalties to trustees who fail to register a trust by the required deadline. More details on the TRS, including which trusts are not required to be registered, and how we will register a trust on behalf of trustees iare available on our website.
For more details on each business, please access the relevant website.
