Petite Blanchette is a beautiful duplex chalet apartment with vaulted ceilings, the original exposed beams and panoramic mountain views. Sleeping up to 10 people (sole occupancy possible for 6 or more), it takes up the whole top floor of a traditional savoyarde farmhouse located in an unspoilt mountain hamlet just below Montalbert, La Plagne. The building is directly opposite Ferme Blanche, our other chalet in the same village. Petite Blanchette is ski-in (off-piste track), and just 5 minutes drive from the ski lifts in our chalet shuttle bus.
The chalet has 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 8 (or 10 if children), an infrared sauna, heated ski store and 2 bathrooms. Lovingly renovated by the owner, his craftsman’s eye and love of old wood is evident throughout. There are lots of quirky details and clever contrasts created by mixing materials reclaimed from the original barn and sleek modern fittings.
Petite Blanchette is in the ideal spot for a peaceful winter escape. Despite being so close to the slopes, the hamlet has managed to stay hidden and undeveloped. You feel a million miles away from the outside world – no traffic, no bars, and no shops. The nearest are 2 kilometres away in Longefoy – a 20 minute “flattish” walk along a country lane. You can also hike up to the village resort of Plagne Montalbert, depending on the conditions, it’s about 25 minutes up from the house along forest trails. Alternatively, take the easy option and catch our shuttle bus!
