Perfect place to get away for a week end if you want to have peace and tranquility. Went there for one night. Loved it so much that one month later we went again for two nights. Had very nice time watching sunrise and sunset, lighting and enjoying a fire in the chimney, having a barbecue at night! Also watching the horses in the stable and outside also. An experience we are willing to renew!

Every angle of La Vieille Cheminee is gorgeous, you can feel this place was designed to be in harmony with the spirits of Chamarel. I loved having a walk with the horses on their multiple hiking trails, loved waking up to a splendid view of the virgin mountains, loved the home-cooked food. Beautiful place to recharge yourself far from crowds; there's intentionally no wifi in the rooms, the only other residents you will see are the birds. Thank you for this magical stay, will definitely come back!

Will definitely not recommend, poor communication, bad hospitality from the director himself, no privacy, didn't enjoy my 2 nights stay over, couldn't chill with my friends we were under supervision the while time. Too much stress than relaxing. Can't put a nice musical environment or meditation. Paid for each visitors guess pass, still had a very bad call from the owner. 😑

Amazing place niched in the mountainous slopes of Chamarel. Our chalet had a fireplace and a well-equipped kitchen. We took a couple of trail walks and came back to a great dinner and a warm lit fireplace. Highly recommended
