Claire Burroughs purchased this chalet in 2006
The wildflowers are stunning in all colours, I'd never seen a bouquetin deer with its huge curly horns or a black squirrel! With the buzzards & huge butterflies it felt like a nature programme. The mountain walks to the refuges are worth doing and the chairlifts and ski lifts are open to help - you can have lunch up the mountain and stroll back enjoying the view of the snowy peaks.
