- How to reach us
Our old Schoolhouse chalet is situated strategically between the Mont Blanc and the Vanoise National Park.
Bordering a mountain hamlet, with incredible views on the surrounding peaks and the valley below, amidst forest and pastures, our place is an old farmhouse which served as the local country school from 1923 to 1974. It was fully renovated in 2000.
The rural environment, the peace and comfort make it an ideal place to meet up with friends or family in large groups taking up the entire chalet, or to enjoy the area in smaller numbers and share experiences with others.
Situated just 5 mn away from of one of the largest ski areas of the French Alps (La Plagne Paradiski) we drive our guests with our own minibuses, with no waiting. In summer it is very central to many hiking and touring areas which have made this region famous.
The village resort of La Plagne-Montalbert opens in summer as well as winter. It is just 4 km by road and 1,5 km by the path that winds through the forest. When the snow conditions are right, it is possible to ski back down to our chalet, off piste. In summer the many activities on offer, as well as the bars and shops can be reached following a very pleasant (though uphill!) walk.
Between the alpine passes of the Iseran, Petit Saint Bernard, Cormet de Roselend and Col de la Madeleine, it is an ideal base for cyclists and motorcyclists. At the bottom of the valley, the Isere is one of Europe's most famous spots for rafting and kayaking, with a 23 km stretch of whitewater.
The Aime - La Plagne SNCF station, 7 km from the Gîte-auberge de Montvilliers, is served by TGV, Thalys (except off-season) and TER. We will pick you up personally upon your arrival.
Four airports serve our region.
