Every day, you will have access to different and prestigious skiing areas such as Tignes, Val d'Isère, Sainte Foy, and Les Arcs.

About Séverin Marchand

I was born in 1976 in Jura. I moved to the valley in 2004 to work as a High Mountain Guide. In 2007, I started building this house according to my conception of habitable spaces. When I finished it, the pleasure and the comfort of living in this place move me to share this experience. Then, I decided to combine my passion for mountain and skiing with the touristic field in order to offer an exceptional skiing holiday to my guests.

Séverin Marchand purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Séverin Marchand chose Val d'Isere - Tignes - Sainte Foy

I built this chalet for myself in 2007 according to an eco-friendly approach emphasising renewables energies, using wood and the sun for heating and hot water, as well as rainwater harvesting for toilets. This house offers all the comforts, luxury, and simplicity. Akène Chalet can accommodate up to 8 people, and it offers 2 bathrooms, 3 separate bedrooms, and 2 beds on the mezzanine. The living area is located under a huge roof frame dating back to 1829, flooded with light thanks to large bay windows, which open up to the mountain. The chalet offers a laundry room with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, iron, and ironing board. The chalet is a fully equipped open-plan kitchen. You will find a satellite TV, a DVD player, Wi-Fi access, a hi-fi stereo system, linen and bedding supplied.

Tres beau chalet, excellentes prestations !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent sejour du 20 au 27 decembre 2015. Le chalet est encore mieux que sur les photos ! Tres bons equipements (3 machines a cafe, 2 dosettes et 1 classique), confort au top (chauffage par le sol...), vue magnifique sur les massifs en face; beaucoup d'espace dans la piece a vivre, la mezzanine (que les enfants adorent) et l'etage des chambres; acces internet super rapide; espace devant le chalet pour garer 3 voitures sans souci... Et bien sur l'accueil et les conseils de Severin le proprietaire des lieux. J'en oublie sans doute. Voila, vraiment a conseiller.
