Rustic charm and a warm welcome...

A warm, welcoming atmosphere and bags of character in this popular chalet

Guests in Chalet Le Ruisseau love being able to ski back to the chalet terrace after crossing the wooden bridge over the meandering stream that gives the chalet its name.

The owner's eye for boutique-style design includes eye-catching paintings, handmade furniture and reclaimed doors, ladders and rustic tools from original mountain barns used as decoration throughout. Slip into the hot tub which overlooks the beautiful tree-lined slopes, or enjoy toasting marshmallows in the den - a cosy hut with a Nordic ‘kota' fire pit and 6-person sauna. Truly magical experiences await in Chalet Le Ruisseau...
