Chalet Dauphiné  

Chalet Dauphiné

Entering Chalet Dauphiné under the climbing vine you come directly into the main living room.  Its original vaulted ceilings create an atmospheric and convivial dining room.  Meals are easy to prepare as there is a purpose built kitchen with everything to hand.  For those who just want to keep good company there is also a small sitting area with sofa and chairs.  For those who prefer to be in the open air many of our guests take to sitting on the long bench leaning against the stone wall of the house, surveying the Upper Lawnincredible scenery as it is transformed by the changing moods of the weather.  During the summer months you may also choose to descend into the gardens, with its green lawns, colourful flowerbeds, mature lime trees and the occasional fruits.  Here you will find space enough for your own quiet corner for reading or a reflective snooze; for games with your companions such as badminton, boule or table tennis; or simply to be awed by the majesty and beauty of the surrounding mountains.

Leading upstairs there is a small sitting room, a quieter space for withdrawing and relaxing away from the activity.  There are five bedrooms, each with their own character and charm, named after the surrounding mountains.  ‘The Indian’ and ‘Venosc’ have the advantage of leading out onto a shared balcony overlooking the gardens, a place to survey the magnificent scenery from your own space.   ‘Les Ecrins’ has a double bed with its own shower, lending a certain sense of privacy.  ‘Muzelle’ has two bunk beds, ideal for children or for adults willing to return to their youth.  And La ‘Meije’ is the largest room for a little more freedom of movement.

Lauvitel Lodge is a magical place and ideal for a range activities from a relaxing getaway to and adventure trip. During my visit I got to experience both. Caroline is a wonderful host, the food is superb, and the location is stunning. Can’t wait to go back!
