Bedrooms 4
Space 968 sq. ft.
Property type chalet


About the property

Renovated mountain farm, quiet with view, up to 14 people

At the bottom of a hamlet located between Valloire and Valmeinier, at the foot of Crey du Quart, rustic and well-appointed mountain farm, very quiet with breathtaking views, on 2 separate levels (communicating from the outside):

main house for 10 people with its annex in the basement for 4 people; small terrace and large garden.

The cottage is ideal for two or three families and why not grandparents who can be quiet in the annex.

The chalet is located in the heart of the ski area and is on the piste map, hamlet 'La Duchère' (see photo n ° 3).

Car not essential to access the ski slopes: free shuttle 300 m from the chalet, driving in 3 min. the 6-seater Grandes Drozes detachable chairlift, giving access to Valloire, and to the Armera chairlift, giving access to Valmeinier.

Return to the ski-in ski-out chalet: either by easy way from the Grapil and Riouberoux slopes (1), or by slope in the fir trees (medium difficulty) from the Armera piste (2).

Come and enjoy a week of family holidays in the Valloire-Valmeinier resort (Domaine Galibier Thabor): snow guaranteed (70% of the ski area above 2000m altitude, snow cannons on the main slopes) and sun ( we are south of the department of Savoie, on the edge of the Hautes-Alpes and close to Italy).

Spend winter in the joys of alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and many summer hikes with mountain lakes, canyons, cliffs to climb (Mount Thabor, Needles Arves ...).

Great place to stay! (Lieu de séjour impeccable !)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this typical French property. Ideal for large family with friends! The owners are great hosts and very obliging. Lovely fire and well equipped for our weeks stay. Nice quiet location and even though the slopes are a short 3 min drive away this pose no threat to our enjoyment of the skiing in the Valloire and Valmeinier areas. In fact ideally placed for both areas. Highly recommend it!

(Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce chalet typiquement français. Idéal pour les grandes familles avec des amis ! Les propriétaires sont des hôtes charmants et très attentionnés. Chalet bien équipé pour y séjourner confortablement, avec un grand poêle chaleureux. Location de charme, très calme, située à seulement 3 minutes en voiture des pistes, ce qui ne nous a posé aucune contrainte pour profiter pleinement de l'intégralité du domaine skiable : en fait, idéalement située tant pour accéder aux pistes de Valloire que de Valmeinier. Nous recommandons particulièrement cette location !)

Avis très favorable

  • 5 of 5

C'est la 2ème année de suite que nous séjournons à 2 familles dans ce chalet.

Les renseignements en amont sont complets et justes.

La taille du gîte est favorable aux grandes familles, évidemment.

Les équipements sont accessibles, faciles à utiliser.

La literie est confortable même dans les chambres d'enfants.

Et en plus, nous avons apprécié d'être en dehors du site touristique.

Super Vacances dans un joli refuge

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans un endroit très calme et dépaysant. Le refuge est propre, bien équipé, conforme à l'annonce, accueillant, chaleureux où les enfants ne sont pas oubliés (jeux, matériel, livres, ..). Très bon contact avec la propriétaire qui nous a très bien expliqué et indiqué notre lieu de villégiature. Refuge situé à proximité des pistes et remontées mécaniques, possibilité de faire des balades en raquettes. Bons restaurants aux alentours. Nous recommandons cette location. Familles Chaboteaux & Deneil Belgique.

Super Location

  • 5 of 5

Joli chalet dans un hameau de montagne, à deux pas des pistes et des remontées mécaniques. Jolie vue, chalet très bien aménagé et tout équipé (comme indiqué dans les descriptions). Beaucoup de couchages très fonctionnels. L'annexe du dessous est un vrai plus, nous avons passé un très bon et agréable séjour... Nous reviendrons l'été pour découvrir les randonnées !

Vacances familiales - Chalet qui a une âme

  • 5 of 5

Venant de Belgique, nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille dans un cadre familial. A recommander pour des personnes qui recherchent un chalet situé dans la montagne, dans un endroit très calme. Le chalet est très bien équipé. L'accueil est très chaleureux et basé sur la confiance. Chalet idéal pour une famille nombreuse.
