We are Valentin and Yvonne van der Valk, both Dutch. During our cycling trip of 2 years from Holland to Thailand we searched for a place where we could start a home away from home; for ourselves and for others. This home we found at the end of our trip in 2010 in Puy Saint Vincent. We started with running the local campsite, because we love being outdoor and we started working together with another Dutch couple (Ilonka and Vincent Biermans) who own Catered Chalet AlpeLune. Then we got the opportunity to buy Hotel Saint Roch and started living in the chalet just opposite of the hotel. In this chalet there are 2 more apartments, so the other 2 we rent out. Because we love the mountains and it's great to share this with other people and make sure they have a great time during their holiday.
Yvonne van der Valk purchased this apartment in 2014
Because it's located opposite Hotel Saint Roch and the ski slopes of station 1400.
You do not need a car anymore after you've arrived, because the ski slopes and lift are just across the street. It has a great garden to live outside during summer time.
