Why Nigel and Irene chose Mieussy
Chalet Le Moulin is a classic French log chalet offering the experience of wood charm of solid logs, set high up the mountain with spectacular views, its own adjacent pine trees forest and surrounding meadows. Just above is our village ski resort that extends over and arounds the mountains to the neighbouring resort of Praz de Lys. We think our village has the prettiest skiing in the French Alps! It's a protected nature reserve without the mass development of some of its neighbours. Loved for being uncrowded and family friendly - here you will not get knocked over by rude 20 somethings from Northern Europe. Slopes are much less crowded, with long blissful ski trails and plenty of challenging runs at all levels. This is the secret resort where the local French and Swiss from Geneva go! In the spring and summer it turns into magnificent green Alpine 'Heidi' country. Distant cowbells float up on the warm air as background music. The chalet is 50 minutes from the borders of Switzerland or Italy. Its perfect for exploring the Alps and lakes. The nearby lake town of Annecy is the single place that polled highest amonst French people for where most French people would like to move to if they could.
What makes this Chalet unique
A truly peaceful hideaway. Romantic chalet charm with wood fires but also luxury renovated kitchen, bathrooms, furnishings and fittings. Chalet Le Moulin faces south across the valley with views that inspire calm and serenity. From the door there are hiking trails across the mountains with spectacular views, gushing streams and cliff caves. You can walk past timeless Alpine Chalet farms, still making reblouchon cheese and in late spring the meadows are crammed with flowers. Afterwards you start up the wood fired hot tub. There is plenty of space to play outside and explore. The chalet has its own private woodland, hammocks, and hidden terraces to sunbathe.
