Our beautiful house dates from 1756; a 250 year old farmhouse whose original features include exposed stonework, lots of beams, old wooden doors and quirky corners. A spiral staircase leads up to the stunning top floor with a spacious open plan living and dining area.

The dining and kitchen area are down 5 steps from the living area. Floor to ceiling windows offer sweeping views.
A large balcony has seating (and keeps the beers cold!) , with views of mountains and the distant Mont Blanc.
A wide spiral staircase connects the 3 floors.
We're right at the heart of Paradiski. From Montchavin you can ski all of La Plagne, or take the Vanoise Express across to Les Arcs.
Paradiski is one of the largest winter playgrounds in the world, with over 425km of groomed pistes.
Made up of La Plagne and Les Arcs, there is skiing from 1250 metres up to 3200 metres with 2 glaciers to ski, and 70% of the skiing area above 2000 metres.
Our chalet is in Montorlin, 1 km outside the resort village of Montchavin. Our chalet minibus is run at your convenience and takes you from the chalet to the ski lift – no walking involved! We give you our telephone number so at the end of the day – or whenever you have had enough on the slopes – you call us and we’ll come and meet you.
Montchavin is on the La Plagne side of Paradiski. You only need to take one chair lift to reach the cable car across the valley to Les Arcs, so many of our guests decide to buy the full area pass.
Montchavin village also has a spa: an indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room.
Owner run, we offer a genuinely flexible and personalised service.
Enjoy the superb accommodation, including a huge living room with giant, squashy sofas and the amazing views to the distant Mont Blanc.
Come home to the charm and character of a real French village - with a free minibus service of only 3 minutes, on tap!
