Animals allowed

The Mystic Marmot chalet sleeps up to 14 people. It is only accessible by foot (15 minute walk) and offers a unique natural experience allowing guests to disconnect from the outside world.
Step out your front door and you will be able to explore the local flora and fauna distinct to the region. Go for adventurous hikes to view Mont Blanc, get lost picking mushrooms in the forest or gaze up at the stars while sitting around the campfire with friends and family.
The Mystic Marmot is totally off-the-grid. All electricity is produced and stored on-site with a large photovoltaic solar system while the chalet is heated exclusively using a wood burning fireplace. Drinking water comes directly from a natural spring and guests are invited to collect fresh eggs from the chicken coop each morning. If you have a sweet tooth, there are on-site beehives that produce delicious honey. We are working towards creating large permaculture gardens and orchards to provide guests with fresh produce.
