Longing for fresh air

Fountain cottage



We welcome you to our brand new chalet which has an apartment for 8 people (Le Mont Cenis) and an apartment for 6 people (La Parrachée). Completed in 2016 and classified 4 stars, this modern construction with all the equipment and comforts necessary today, respects traditions with its slate roof, stone and facade cladding.

The high quality chalet is accessible to people with reduced mobility (PRM); the apartments are on one level and each have a sunny outdoor terrace with garden; a parking space in the immediate vicinity of the entrance is reserved for people with reduced mobility. A ski room equipped with boot dryers, a bicycle room equipped with a bicycle workshop, a fishing room and a washing machine and dryer are available to guests. Parking spaces are reserved next to the chalet and a closed garage can be made available on request.

Calm and tranquility will be the watchwords of your stay in a remote village of the Val Cenis ski area but which is accessed by inter-village shuttles.

To avoid inconvenience and traffic difficulties on winter Saturdays, we rent our apartments from Sunday to Sunday. You will thus avoid the heavy goods vehicles on our roads and will benefit from a day of skiing without crowds on the Saturday before your departure. All the services in the resort are adapted to allow you to have a pleasant stay.

If you want additional information, send us a message or call us and we will be happy to answer you as soon as possible.

who are who are we ?

studied in Nancy and Lille, a first experience in New Caledonia, we settled in the Bas-Rhin (Strasbourg then Balbronn) to join the Alsace center in Colmar in 1998. The family grew with the arrival of Coline in 2001 and Léna in 2005. Athletes, mountain lovers (graduates of CAF Moselle then Colmar), paragliding enthusiasts since 1995, trips guided by our common passions (Australia, Switzerland , Morocco, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Portugal, Chile, India, Germany etc…). Always more and more attracted by the summits, we settle in 2008 in the Maurienne valley and quickly fall in love with the valley and the high Maurienne. Ski touring guided by Mango our Berger Blanc Suisse, alpine skiing and Nordic skiing but also mountain biking on the alpine trails or even road biking to take advantage of the largest cycling area in the world, paragliding is increasingly associated with hiking and enjoyment of our descents, solo or tandem. Do not hesitate to ask us questions, we will answer you as soon as possible,

Maurienne valley

The Maurienne brings together superb ski areas, hundreds of mountain hikes, magnificent landscapes, villages and friendly inhabitants… Everything you need to recharge your batteries and recharge your batteries!

In Haute Maurienne, an Eski-Mo pass for 6, 7 or 8 days allows you to ski 1 day in each of the Haute Maurienne resorts (Val Cenis, Aussois, La Norma, Valfréjus and Bonneval sur Arc). A free shuttle runs between the chalet and the various resorts.

Located on the edge of the Haute Maurienne, the Vanoise National Park envelops high mountains, culminating at more than 3,000 m, on which many glaciers remain, accessible by valleys opening onto wide, easily accessible passes.

Our chalet is ideally located for touring the Glaciers de la Vanoise and reaching the Arpont refuge, for example.

“Hiking” Destination

You are making the right choice by setting off to discover wide open spaces and unspoiled nature. Here, the air is pure and the many hiking trails available to you guarantee well-deserved freedom! Sheltered from the ocean rains by the Pre-Alps and the Belledonne range, the massif has a relatively low rainfall climate and quite sunny.
