A breathtaking location
The house itself is at the foot of Montchavin in the small hamlet of Montorlin; it is a converted farmhouse with superb views across the valley and on to Mont Blanc. Full of charm and ambience with pretty little streets and alleys and a C17th church, the hamlet is quiet and rural but close to the action. We drive our guests the 2 minutes to the lifts when you’re ready in the morning; and collect you whenever you choose. Set on the small village square, the house is an intriguing combination of old beams and stone walls and modern open plan spaces of glass and wood. The 6 bedrooms sleep 12 – 14 guests, with additional put-up beds available on request.
Ground Floor: Double with en suite shower room. family suite comprising large double bedroom with picture windows and four poster; through to bedroom with bunk beds; through to en suite bathroom.
First Floor: Double with en suite shower and loo; twin with white washed walls; double with built-in 4 poster; twin with curtained Savoyard beds
A spiral stone staircase connects the floors, leading up to the huge open plan ‘loft’ living area that takes up the entire top floor of the house. The sitting area has sumptuously big, squashy sofas and is a great place to take afternoon tea and to relax after dinner. Books, games, CDs, videos and DVDs are on hand for rainy days or lazy afternoons. The kitchen and dining area has glass doors leading onto the large balcony with its sweeping views across the rugged miles of the Tarentaise, with Mont Blanc in the distance. The cellar underneath the house is a general utility room and boot room, and has storage for your skis or snowboards.
