We stayed for Christmas 2014 week in this beautifully appointed chalet in Montorlin, just a 2 min drive or 10 min walk from Montchavin. In the winter this is a fully catered chalet and you will get the opportunity to experience some fantastic food from Liza and Co. The chalet hosts were incredibly helpful in sorting out all our requirements...
