Its just a few minutes drive further to park next to chair lifts that start at a high altitude of 1510m. Here the snow is already crisp and pillowy with soaring pine forests and open meadows.

But it's not all about the skiing. Chalet Le Moulin is also somewhere to enjoy time with your family and friends.
Explore the local winter markets and family events in the surrounding villages. For more sophisticated glamour, it is a just a short trip to either the bright lights of Geneva or the lakeside magic of Annecy (which is our favourite day away from the slopes)

Set high up on a south facing mountain, with old farm chalets and walking trails this is a special place to explore and come back to a log fire. This is a tranquil paradise, away from busy roads and somewhere your children can play and explore safely, meadows and forest in the summer or winter.
