    Description

    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!

    Resort

    The chalet is in the top part of Montvilliers (1100m), a tiny unspoilt hamlet tucked away on the mountainside under the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (one of the La Plagne ski villages). Montalbert’s gondola is a quick 5 minute drive in our chalet shuttle (for catered guests only, shared with Ferme Blanche). You can also ski back along off-piste forest tracks.

    Plagne Montalbert has picturesque tree-lined slopes, challenging blacks and reds, wide blue runs and some good off-piste. It’s an ideal location for mixed ability and family groups. You can also ski across to the centre of La Plagne where you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of slopes and restaurants. There’s also a board park, x2 sledge parks and a glacier. If that’s not enough, you can take the Vanoise Express and ski all the way over to Les Arcs too on the other side of Paradiski.

    Accessibility

    Petite Blanchette is on the top floor of the farmhouse, accessed via a flight of internal wooden stairs. There are steps and steep staircases inside too. Sadly as a result it is not very suitable for people with mobility difficulties or very young children. If you are travelling with children, please note we do not provide cots, high chairs or car seats (except booster seats), but you are welcome to bring your own.
