Children's paradise

What if the ultimate luxury in the mountains was not skiing, but the calm of summer? What if, cut off from the hustle and bustle of the city, you opted for a relaxing stay in an exceptional environment? Direct access to the swimming pool from the rooms facing you: the mountain pastures in bloom and the peaks of the Alps create a cocoon that does you good. Feet in the water of a heated pool with an infinite overflow, head in the sun, you enjoy the summer, for a moment that seems to last forever.

Pottery workshop

Playing, kneading, shaping, creating... children discover the work of clay surrounded by our animals in the heart of our educational farm.
