Charming Stone-built Former Watermill In The French Alps With Panoramic Views
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

A stunning, larger than expected, yet cosy place to spend a week. A hidden gem.

Sarah is incredibly helpful and very welcoming and has created an oasis of warmth, comfort but homeliness in this delightful chalet. It was everything we hoped it would be with way more besides, to arrive after a long journey to a roaring wood burner...just what was needed. It was ideally situated for us as we were able to try out 3 different ski resorts from this base as it nestles neatly in between them all and the skiing was great, lovely long runs that suited all of us from green to black.

We had the pleasure of an evening meal cooked by Sarah, a superb cook...well worth finding an evening (or two) during your stay and booking her to create some simply delicious food.

From the minute we drove up to the moment we left this chalet just had us smiling and feeling at home.

We will definitely be back.
