Guestbook comments from the owner
Le chalet est situé au bout d'un chemin et donc très tranquille. Si le temps le permet on peut déjeuner dehors. Il y a un grand champ et une belle vue sur les Aravis, avec de beaux couchers de soleil. Nous avons vu presque tous les jours des animaux sauvages autour de la maison (bouquetins, chevreuils...). La cuisine est très agréable, claire et grande. Un peu pauvre cependant en matériel, couverts et plats. Nous avons apprécié l'écran plat et internet. Le village est sympathique et il y a beaucoup de randonnées de tous niveaux tout autour.
Je conseille cette location à: Seniors, Vacanciers avec animaux de compagnie, Escapades entre filles, Familles avec adolescents, Familles avec enfants en bas âges

My child hood was in Uganda. I came to England in 1970 which has been my home with my family ever since. As a child many times I had visited the rift valley in Kenya. It is since then that I had wished for a place in mountains, & Notre Dame de Bellecombe is the perfect place. With the help of my wife who is from India, we have made chalet varni our second home.
Unspoilt views from the property, friendliness and warmth of the local people has touched us.
The Ambiance, tranquility and the surrounding views will overwhelm anyone who visits Chalet Varni.
