Montvilliers is an old alpine farming hamlet surrounded by ancient apple orchards, beautiful wild flower meadows and forest. There are lots of good walks, cross country skiing and mountain biking routes straight from the door. We can provide maps and route suggestions, or help you hire a guide.
The hamlet is very quiet, reached along narrow country lanes with very little through traffic. There's a bakery and village store in Longefoy, the next village (20 minute walk), and you can also walk up to the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (25 minutes depending on conditions, unmarked forest trails). Its tranquil old fashioned atmosphere is perfect for a relaxed alpine escape.

In winter, dinner is available every night for groups of 4 or more.
