Welcome to Chalet Ecosse.
A rustic alpine home for rent.
The chalet is located at the edge of a small village, above Bourg St. Maurice, high in the Savoie region of the French Alps. At 1400 metres, this rustic chalet enjoys a beautiful climate, never too hot in summer and plenty of snow in winter for skiing. The village is a living community of farmers, local professionals and holidaymakers. The chalet overlooks Bourg St Maurice, a medium sized town with plenty of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes.
Our chalet is available for self catering winter and summer rental, it offers comfortable accommodation for up to eight. Converted from a 150 year old cow shed and hay loft, the chalet now provides four bedrooms, two toilets, two showers and a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area. A car is essential for most save the fittest walkers as the nearest shop is a 45 minute downhill walk and a one and a half hour walk back up the hill. Skiing is available in a choice of resorts from Les Arcs, 15 minutes by car, St Foye or La Rosiere 30mins or Val d'Isere 45 mins.
Extensive summer walking is available with Mont Blanc, the Vanoise and Grand Paradis national parks all within easy reach should you run out of routes that run from the chalet itself.
