Property Description

4 bedroom chalet with spa, truly unique design with exquisite features.

The Chalet...

Just tucked away from the heart of the village is this stunning chalet made up of 3 parts. This is the sale of the main chunk of the chalet and the attached spa centre which has been the work space of the owner. The chalet is a straw bail construction which provides extremely effective insulation throughout. This along with a wood granule heating system means the overall bills for heating and water on the whole property are less than 1500 € per year !!

Through the main entrance we enter the vast open plan living area which is bathed in light from all sides. There are exposed beams, wooden floors and an open duplex balcony overlooking the whole space. The kitchen is made of a unique concentric work area with brushed aluminium panels. This was the centre piece of a recent magazine feature on original eco properties in the 05 department. On this level are 2 large guest bedrooms, storage space and a beautiful bathroom which has a hand crafted bath made from coloured clay.

The spiral staircase made from a single tree trunk leads upstairs to the open duplex office space and 2 further massive bedrooms. To the rear of the property is a commercial spa centre which is the work space of the owner. It is made up of a massage room, a sauna and treatment table. This can easily be connected to the rest of the house with very little work.

The owners are currently enjoying great success in holiday lets using popular letting portals. This is a breathtaking property which has been built with an artists eye for detail and originality. A wonderful alpine recluse in a beautiful setting. INCREDIBLE VALUE FOR MONEY !!!

The Area...

Champcella is a quiet alpine village perched above the Durance Valley. It is half way between Briancon ( 30 km ) and Vars ( 25 km ) and just 30 minutes drive to each of these 2 large ski areas. The village has a local school, church, gite with bar and is a popular spot for tourists looking for a quiet holiday spot off the beaten track. The area is well known for rock climbing, with many crags just a short drive from the chalet. It is also very close the walking trails that lead right up in to the Ecrin National Park. Down on the valley floor is a small aerodrome which is popular with gliding enthusiasts and there is also a beautiful bathing lake called “ Roche du Rame “ which has a kiddies beach and pic nic areas all round. This is a truly authentic part of the alps which is very uncommercial and natural.

Serre Chevalier Ski Area

This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.

Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.

Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.

Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
