Breakfast is delivered in a basket each morning to your front door. Lunch and evening meals, cookery classes, retreats and special events can also be arranged.

Lo spazio
This rustic Savoyard village house was derelict, dilapidated and neglected by time, until Nikki and Hugh once again breathed life into its beautiful stone bones and earthen floors. They’ve spent two years transforming the house into a magical, warmly inviting and bespoke property.

The house has been carefully decorated with a stunning and eclectic mix of old treasures from past lives and all the comforts of modern day living. Chez Milo features include rustic oak floors with underfloor heating, chandeliers that cast their soft glow on tastefully restored vintage arm chairs and a beautifully handcrafted antique dresser filled with a substantial crystal collection, old silverware as well as new crockery.

It truly is a feast for the eyes and zen comfort for the soul.

Walking through the front door you will feel the warm embrace of the lounge featuring original Savoyard beams. A deep leather sofa and comfy chairs are perfectly placed in front of the wood burning stove, and rustic coffee table. The fur throws and colourful woollen rugs will entice you to curl up and enjoy a glass of wine while watching a movie or gazing out at the falling snow in the winter months. The kitchen is fully equipped with quality appliences.

The first ensuite bedroom, the beautiful blue ‘Cloud’ room, is accessed from the dining room. This room can be made up as a twin or double bedroom, with cotton sheets, fat feather quilts, silk pillows and large cosy fur throws. The ensuite has underfloor heating with hand crafted tiles from Italy, a large shower, unique sink, wc and chandelier.

Leading down from the kitchen you will find the cavernous “ Snug ” room which was once upon a time the coal storage room. This is one of the property’s two salons. Snug has white washed vaulted ceilings, soft lighting, underfloor heating, a velvet sofa, and a wall of original paintings that will certainly encourage you to take the weight off your feet, relax and recharge- a beautiful space to capture peaceful moments and some restful snoozing on the couch!

Walk down a few stone steps from the Snug and you will find your way to the second ensuite bedroom, named the “Cave” as there are no windows. This room is all about romance, starting from the play of light from the chandelier crystals on the vaulted ceiling to the cosy feel of the double or single beds, The thick feather quilts, silk pillows and large fur throws will get you dreaming like never before. The ensuite is also vaulted and features a walk in shower, large double sink, toilet and underfloor heating.

During the summer months, you can enjoy your meals outside on a sunny terrace with mountain view. There is no air conditioning because the vaulted ceilings and thick walls keep the place perfectly cool.

For cyclists, we have a lock up garage and a workshop for repair and maintenance.

Dove ti troverai

Naves, Alvernia-Rodano-Alpi, Francia

Surrounded by mountain views to die for, life in this French alpine village is relaxed to say the least! In winter, endless white peaks embrace your soul and fill you with a sense of restorative peace. Come summer, the verdant pastures resonate with the sound of tinkling mountain streams, singing birds and the occasional cow bell from the local herds! Butterflies flit merrily around your feet as you tread the ancient footpaths and you find yourself bewitched by the magic of simply being alive.

* Grand Naves village : only a handful of residents in this Alpine village, making it a peaceful getaway. Not more than a 3 minute walk brings you to our only bar and restaurant, stunning terraces in split levels over looking the mountains and placed next to a beautiful stream. A truly rustic experience and you play a game of “French boules “ whilst sipping on your drink.
There is also a tourist office, selling bread, locals jams and maps, also cross country ski and snow shoe rentals.

* Naves cross country skiing area : in winter a free bus takes you up to the start of the cross country area. It runs every 30 minutes for walkers, back country skiers and cross country skiers. There is more than 50km of tracks for skating or x-country skiing and 38km for those on snow shoes.
Such a peaceful alternative to big alpine resorts !

* Hiking : in summer there is a huge selection of stunning walking tracks right from your front door, all sign posted (the tourist office offers maps). Explore the high alpine meadows and eat at a traditional alpine refuge or let us organise a mountain guide who can show you the best of the area and reveal the local flora and fauna.

* Biking : do you feel like practising in an exceptional and sunny protected environment ? Conquer cols made famous by the Tour De France on your road bike or descend epic singletrack trails on your mountain bike. Discover our 10 marked routes, our enduro route and our e-bike route. Paths suitable for e-mountain bikes, muscular and gravel.
Let ex MTB pro Hugh build you an itinerary to suit your ability, fitness and riding style.

* Thermal spa area : at the bottom of the mountain there is also a thermal spa area, offering 4 pools of naturally heated water, massage and a restaurant.

* Surroundings : ski resorts of Valmorel and Meribel / Courchevel (30 minute drive), lake Annecy (1 hour drive)
