About Nicole Cruz

The chalets and the barns: as the fire dangers were high in the farm, the family built an attic, a separate wooden building that was isolated from moisture and rodents. It was used to preserve the most precious goods: seeds, Sunday clothes, provisions, some papers and family jewels.

Terraced along the slopes, there were small barns fully made of wooden and without openings to stock the collected hay waiting for next winter.

Nicole Cruz purchased this chalet in 1989

Why Nicole Cruz chose La Chapelle-d'Abondance

This rental has been a family house for generations. It has been fully renovated to meet your comfort expectations. From Christmas 2016, the attic will get bigger. It will have 2 bathrooms, 2 toilets and a large separate kitchen opening onto the living space.

What makes this chalet unique

Shaped by nature and men, the Vallée d’Abondance is a glacier valley in mid-mountain areas rhythmed by the “adret” (south-facing slope) and “ubac” (north-facing slope) that are called “adroit” and “envers” here.

CHALET chaleureux et bien placé

  • 4 of 5

La Chapelle d'Abondance est un village typique près de Chatel, très bien situé ainsi que le chalet. De nombreuses balades pédestres possibles. Un chalet chaleureux, bien équipé, propriétaire charmante et à l'écoute.

Le soleil a été de la partie, c'était parfait.

Attention aux escaliers malgré tout : démarrer du bon pied !!

Merci à Nicole

Nous avons séjourné du 7 au 14 janvier dernier dans ce chaleureux chalet... tout est réunis afin que l on s'y sente bien et c est vraiment le cas... tout confort... emplacement idéal un peu reculé... une belle terrasse... et un agrandissement qui permet de séjourner nombreux sans empiéter sur l'espace des co-locataires... un sous sol spacieux et chauffé qui permet de laisser les vêtements de ski à sécher... sans oublier la propreté du chalet ce qui n est pas négligeable quand on prend une location!

nous y retournerons les yeux fermés ! Au plaisir !
