| The house
Close to the church, but somehow isolated from the village, the "Haut Balcon" takes benefit, with its southern exposure, at 1200 m high, from a generously sunny sky, even in the shortest days of the year.
The house offers an internal area of 84 sqm and can accomodate from 5 up to 7 persons (2 bedrooms with additional sleeping loft).
The ground floor comprises a large living room of 34 sqm, extended by a long balcony and a covered terrace, the kitchen, an adjoining pantry, the entrance hall with a cloakroom and a toilet.
The upper floor has a room with double bed, opened on a covered balcony, a room with two bunk beds and a single bed, a bathroom and toilet. You will find an extra bedding (double bed) in an isolated space of the mezzanine, under an unusually low ceiling (less than 1.80 meter) which particularly delight the children.
Recently built (1995), architecturally well integrated in the traditional village, the "Haut Balcon" offers all the usual comfort.
Three words qualify the best the soul and the atmosphere at the "Haut Balcon" : authenticity, light and landscape.
By its high location, in front of a very large landscape, and with its numerous windows and french-windows distributed along three facades, leading onto the large balcony facing with fantastic views out into the valley, the house receives an abundant light, from sunrise to sunset.
The landscape, a bit vertiginous, extends from the Petit Saint-Bernard pass to the Madeleine pass, showing the biggest summits of the Vanoise national Park (Mont-Pourri, Bellecôte, Mont Jovet), and the ski resorts of Les Arcs 1600 and 1800, Peisey-Vallandry, Montchavin, Aime-La Plagne 2000, Montalbert.
