This traditional French Savoyard farmhouse was built in 1746 and renovated by an architect to keep its character and authenticity whilst having all modern amenities to create a luxury mountain chalet. The chalet is divided in 2, at ground floor there is a separate spacious two bedrooms apartment, and on the 1st floor you access to the rest of the chalet composed of 3 levels.
It is a real asset to have this separate apartment below if you choose to operate this property as a holiday business or for live-in staff managing your holiday home. However it can also be linked to main chalet as the door access is existing.
The entrance access is on the front facade of the chalet, and when you come in you will arrive in a warm and cosy living area with an open fully equipped kitchen. Then a corridor with storage area will lead you to the spacious luxurious bathroom, and then on the second left the 1st bedroom. On the right you will enter into the second bedroom ( used as an office at the moment ) with an ensuite shower room( To be renovated as there is currently only the water access and pipes).

A bit of history about the chalet when it was a traditional farmhouse.
Built in 1746 this farmhouse was home to a farmer, family and their livestock. The stone base would have been half accommodation for the family and half stables for cows and goats – essential to providing winter food in the form of milk and cheese. The heat from the animals would have kept the family warm along with the one central fireplace where all food was cooked. The wooden barn above the stone base was a huge space to store the hay needed to see the animals, and therefore the people, through the long and harsh winters.
