      • The 2 delightful bedrooms are on the first floor on either side of the living room which can also serve as a bedroom should you wish. You can choose all three rooms, or for 2-4 persons at a reduced rate, the chalet bedroom and the living room. -chalet bedroom in light wood -double bed, cupboard, shelves. -large bedroom with beams, in calm colours of beige white and pink
        double bed, single bed, wardrobe and shelves. -high-ceilinged, living bed room, superb light particularly in summer: sofa bed (2 singles) sofa, armchair and bookcase. The rooms look over the garden to the valley between Miramont and the pretty hamlet of Arrous, the wooded ridge of the Mirabat, and beyond to the Col de la Core and the slopes of Mt.Valier - at dawn bathed pink in the early light of sunrise, with the smoke curling up from the chimneys of Arrous, and only the sound of birdsong, the stream gurgling below and cowbells. At night, the sky scattered with a million sparkling stars is pure enchantment.

                                                            Nous avons eu un accueil chaleureux et les voisins et les populations locales ont également été très accueillants. Le gîte est rustique, chaleureux et confortable, et le ski-ing est fantastique. Henry et Louis ont eu la meilleure initiation au ski que nous aurions pu souhaiter. Nous sommes tous très tristes de partir

                                                            Un havre de sérenité

                                                            Nous avons passé trois semaines dans cette charmante maison. Le cadre est magnifique, la vue est splendide. Nous avons aimé dans cette location le matériel de cuisine complet, la bibliothèque bien fournie, la terrasse propice aux apéritifs amicaux, le calme ambiant. Cette maison est situé dans une région riches en belles randonnées, riche en bons restaurants. L'accueil des hôtes est parfait. Présents quand on a besoin de conseils, de matériel, discrets ou invisibles le reste du temps. En résumé, un trés bon choix isolé dans un petit hameau accueillant

Tout d'abord l'accueil chaleureux d'Eleri qui m'a maternée toute la semaine avec beaucoup de délicatesse (j'étais venue seule pour une semaine de balades à cheval et pédestre), et puis le charme du lieu, la tranquilité, la vue sur les montagnes : on se sent bien, définitivement !
