Chalet Rocky Mountain sleeps 15 people and has 7 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms. It is an impressive, natural looking chalet constructed using chunky weathered timber which gives the impression that it has just evolved from the trees that surround it!


The chalet is located beside a beautiful wood, just 700m from the centre of the village, with its shops, bars and restaurants and church - only a short walk to the excellent local shop for fresh bread in the morning. It has a hot tub on the deck and it even featured on a National French tv show a couple of years ago. It has many interesting and original furnishings from all over the world: wall hangings come from South America, Africa and Vietnam; the crockery is made in the Stoke on Trent potteries and there are numerous one off artefacts from old Savoyarde farming days.

This chalet has been lovingly created pretty much from scratch. It is most peopleâ??s dream chalet with its old recycled and reclaimed wood from ancient alpine and Polish farms!

Snow weathered timbers, red Australian hardwood, sun bleached driftwood - we have only used interesting and original pieces giving the chalet its quirky character. The artistic use of all these natural materials creates a truly unique chalet with a sophisticated and tasteful country interior.

We have just added masses of new comfy sofas and cushions as well as curtains throughout - all beautifully made in natural fabrics to add extra luxury and complement the style of the chalet.

If you are looking for a chalet with true rustic character, look no further!

Hi Steve,
Loving the chalet and the snow has been amazing with clear blue skies all week. What’s the connection with Jackson hole? One of our party (Matt) spent two winters out there.

Bonjour Steeve,
Nous avons été charmé par votre chalet des Houches. Mes amis et moi étions très bien installés et nous avons ainsi pu nous préparer au mieux aux courses de Chamonix auxquelles nous participions. Je conserve précieusement vos coordonnées pour envisager de recommencer l'année prochaine.
Merci et bonne continuation.
Christophe P Juin 2017

Hello Steeve,
We were charmed by your chalet in Les Houches. My friends and I were very comfortably installed and we were able to get ready and prepare for the races in Chamonix in which we took part.
I will keep your contact details as we will consider coming again next year.
Thank you and good continuation.
