When we get there, we get down and walk through the door like we would reverence this centuries-old raccoon. There was no question for us of enlarging the door by distorting the place. The chalet, located at an altitude of 1,000 metres, continues to blend into the harmony of the mountains. We wanted to make it a quiet and cozy place, warm in winter and cool in summer. It is made for a couple alone or with children.

The space
Everything has been redone with recovery materials gleaned here and there around this small village where time seems to have tuned to the rhythm of the pure source of water flowing in the fountain and in our taps. A place of rest, relaxation, endless walks, skiing with the resort of Les Marecottes two kilometers away. There is no question of disturbing the weasels, foxes, chamois and neighbors (very friendly, by the way) ! Magic works in direct fusion with this wilderness. You come by train to this part of the world or by car and park in the church parking lot 50 meters away. You can also leave your vehicle a few hundred meters higher and end the journey on foot by discovering the village at the turn of the last bend, perched miraculously on this lost side of the mountain. It's amazing! The train – which goesto the Chamonix ski area - also serves the ski resort and the village of Salvan, where you can stock up, have a drink or eat a bite without having to go down to the plains. There are also daily shuttles from the village to the resort.
The chalet consists of a single room of 35 square meters sleeping two people in mezzanine, a bunk bed for two children, a sitting area and the kitchen/dining area. Separate, a bathroom with toilet, sink and bath. A wood stove (wood not included) for anyone, or dry inertia radiators that will be lit on arrival depending on the season. In this chalet, there is no question of "chic and shock" finish. The floor is made of formwork sheets and the furniture comes from the grandmother or grandfather. But how good it is to be there! Raw comfort like the stone kitchen sink, super practical despite its two or three hundred years ! The secure balcony takes in the morning sun. And when the latter turns, we move on to the small front terrace with its bistro table and armchairs to continue enjoying the sunshine of the afternoon.
No, really, it's good to live in this little place where the man becomes quiet… We just hope that you will have the same pleasure as us coming to recharge your batteries in this place that we are happy to share with you!
