La Chaumière Mountain Lodge is just ten minutes walk from the town centre and the picturesque Lac des Gaillands with its famous rock climbing crags. Just 50 metres away from us are the train and bus stops. Both are easy to use and will deliver you to each of the different ski areas or sporting venues in the Valley. If you come by car, the hotel has its own parking, which is free for our guests.
