If you are looking for an authentic summer holiday in the mountains, my cottage can hold your attention to the extent that it has, in my opinion, the following qualities.
First of all, it is very well located, since at the entrance of the natural reserve of Valmeinier and therefore in full nature but while remaining in the immediate vicinity of the station and its trade.
If you like to hike, the cottage is the starting point for many walks through the nature reserve.
In addition, you will have all the comforts of a modern house even if the alpine chalet side has been carefully preserved.
You will also enjoy its exteriors and, of course, eat outside.
On arrival, you will have the possibility to park your vehicle in the immediate vicinity of the chalet and then to store it on the public and free parking of Valmeinier distant of 350 meters.
Indeed, you will easily pass your vehicle for all your activities, unless you want to visit a little region, the village of Valloire in particular and of course the Col du Galibier.
In this regard, the chalet is also an interesting starting point for cyclists and motorcyclists wishing to survey the many passes around.
