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.

This mountain village is also a departure point for people going hiking and mountain biking when the weather is fairer. There are also a good number of fine restaurants in the vicinity.
