In the region of Provence-Alpes-Cote D’Azur lies a small village of just over 330 inhabitants.

It is endowed with a stunning landscape consisting of snow-capped mountains and quaint houses. During the winter, this sleepy village transforms itself into a bustling ski resort. There is plenty of accommodation available for visitors including hotels, gites, apartments, chalets and even studios. Visitors can also camp in Sain-Michel-de-Chaillot’s campsites.

The sight of the Voile de la Mairee waterfall and the chance to walk under it makes the effort of walking well worth it.

Comfortable well equiped house, spectacular scenery

5 of 5
The house has four large bedrooms, which is important to us as we had motorcycle kit and this always seems to take more space than travelling by car. The sloping roof of the two bedrooms located on the top floor, which is really a loft area, can intrude a little. The kitchen is fully equipped and shares the space with the dining room and lounge. This open plan area leads on to the veranda. The bathroom, on the ground floor, is large and contains a bath/shower and a sauna. The second bathroom, on the first floor, has a shower and the washing machine in the cupboard. The front door is, effectively, the garage door. The garage is used as a store area and houses the tumble drier and has enough space for several bicycles, if that’s your thing. The two flights of stairs are narrow and steep, so, be careful when carrying cases and wear some kind of shoes as the stairs are uncovered wood and can be slippery. I thought the lighting, in the lounge area, could have been brighter and could be a problem in the Winter but we were there in June and it wasn’t too much of a problem. All the rooms have electric heaters and manage to dry some wet clothes we had in the first couple of days and should be ok in the Winter. There is a large garden, so, in good weather this can be enjoyed and there is plenty of tree cover for some shade. Extra shade is provided by the roller blind attached to the lower part of the veranda. The house is located in Chabottes and there are no shops but La Plaine de Chabottes, on the main road and within 20 mins walking distance, has a supermarket, bakery and bar and a cheese shop a little further on. There are two more supermarkets and a couple of restaurants 4 miles up the valley at Pont du Fosse. This is where Sandrine, the local representative, has an office. She met us on the first day and efficiently sorted out the bedsheets, towels, where to take the rubbish and other bits and bobs. Overall, I was happy with the house and would recommend it. I certainly enjoyed the stay and the area is spectacular.

Lovely cottage in amazing location

5 of 5
Le Rouchassier is a very comfortable gite with all you could need for a pleasant stay. M & Mme Rochas are perfect hosts, close at hand and friendly but not intrusive. Le Cros is well situated for visits to the beautiful Ecrins National Park, particularly the Valgaudemar valley. In spite of its quiet location, there are two supermarkets and lots of local shops within an easy 5km drive.
