Sleep in a Savoyard chalet built in 1885

This mazot was bought in the commune of Abondance in the Vallée verte.

We dismantled it tray by tray, then reassembled it in Les Houches, at the foot of Mont Blanc, where we gave it a second life.
When we restored it, we were pleasantly surprised to discover an inscription:
Built by ROSSILLON Edouard in the spring of 1885.

Warm, cosy, calm and tranquil are the adjectives that characterise it.

Authentic Mazot built in 1885 in the Abondance Valley. It was carefully disassembled, brushed, and then rebuilt at its present location. New rooms have been added as it’s been enlarged with similar wood material and done with careful consideration to retain many of the original features.Inside, everything is original, with the upper bedroom floor brushed and glazed to a soft honey colour.

During your stay, you’ll be immersed in its serenity, charm and history.

It’s a real challenge to strike the right balance between mountain heritage and modern-day comfort, without spoiling a little jewel that has stood the test of time.

Inside the Chalet

Ready for a visit? Push open the door and discover the interior.

As soon as you open the door, you’ll be charmed by the attic with its little wooden balcony and hemp rope… The patina of old wood that you can’t help but touch. To your right, the fully-equipped kitchen catches your eye, then move on to the mazot…

The master bedroom welcomes you with its 140×190 bed, the promise of a good night’s sleep.

You’re in the mountains! So climb upstairs 🙂

A 16m2 bedroom with two single beds, two bedside tables and an antique chest of drawers.

An enclosed mezzanine with a single bed and its own little balcony.

Who will sleep on the mezzanine? negotiations are open!

To preserve its authenticity, the chalet has retained a number of special features.

To enter the bedrooms, you have to step over a threshold.

What a delight! You can put your luggage down now, and I wish you a pleasant and unforgettable holiday.
