Penthouse Chalet (self-catered)

4 bedrooms + 2 mezzanines (sleeps up to 13)

For guests looking for more independence, we can offer self-catered occupancy of Maison Caramel's stylish top floor penthouse for groups of up to 13 (smaller groups possible).

Accessed by a set of log steps cut into the hillside at the side of the house, it has a wonderful alpine chalet feel with vaulted beamed ceilings, 4 ensuite bedrooms (three with mezzanines and most with balconies), a spacious living/dining area with log stove and lovely mountain views, and a well-equipped kitchen.

For more photos of the penthouse ski chalet, see our album.

It's just a short walk from the village shuttle bus stop for Peisey Vallandry (operates in the summer & winter seasons), or you can self-drive to the ski lifts and back in Montchavin-Les Coches (10 minutes).

It's a great spot for walking, cycling and mountain biking too. There are lots of lovely walks / rides in the surrounding area, accessible straight from the door. There's also white water rafting in summer down at the river base (approx 1km) and swimming in the fresh water lake (approx 3km).

Dogs allowed

You are welcome to bring your pet dog(s) on holiday too if you wish. They'll love the meadow and mountain walks straight from the door, and there's an enclosed garden running along the length of the penthouse (accessed straight from the sitting room and entrance hall).

It's just 10€ per dog, per day (discounts possible for longer stays). While we love dogs too, we do ask that you keep them off the furniture and out of the bedrooms.
