The Location

Chalet L’Ecritoire is located 100 metres from the ski piste in the peaceful Chavants area of Les Houches. In the winter, a short walk takes you to the piste, where you can ski down to join the Prarion lift or the Bellevue lift on blue runs. The chalet is located close to the head of many of the famous walking trails such as the Chalet des Charousse and the Tour de Mont Blanc, where you can enjoy some stunning summer hiking or winter snow shoeing. Within a 5 minute drive of the apartment is a bakery as well as the Lac des Chavants leisure area. Families will be entertained here year round with sledging and cross country skiing in winter, and in summer a children's playground, tennis courts and BBQ areas. You can also walk down to the Chavants lake in about 20 minutes down picturesque back streets and walking paths. A short drive from the chalet, the Grange d’en Haut offers a Spa and restaurant.
