This invitation is not for those who want the hubbub of a ski resort with all its noisy bars and impersonal tourism. Instead, if you prefer a getaway with spectacular views high up on a south facing mountain, plenty of peace, starry nights and cosy log fires, then this is the place for you. Besides its own exceptionally pretty village ski resort with 24 lifts and 60km of ski runs, Chalet Le Moulin is also surrounded by an immense choice of other village ski resorts, all just as easily accessible.
Ski Bus – In ski season, early risers in your party who dont want to wait for the others can take the ski bus up to the main chairlift – it stops near the bottom of our road and the first bus is at 8:30am.
A Traditional Alpine Village
Our village of Mieussy, lies a mile below the chalet and has all the essentials you could need including a village bakery for fresh morning croissants, a gleaming butchers shop, a large village delicatessen for amazing cheeses and finally a quality supermarket is just 5 minutes further away and could show Waitrose a thing or two. In summer its all geraniums filled balconys, and tidy wood stacks.
Besides quality appliances, we like a kitchen full of useful gadgets from a Raclette maker to the Nespresso coffee machine. And we dont like it bare so we keep it stocked with spices, oils and vinegars, tea/coffee and some basic foods for you to borrow. There are also sledges, outdoor table tennis, our favourite board games, Wifi, 2 TVs and 2 DVD players, music and a large library of films and books. There is also a outdoor wood fired hottub and stacks of wood for you to have a go. And a treehouse big enough for the children to hide out in and repel grown ups!
