“La Bal Eteillaz”, was first built around 1930 and was the first chalet to be built on the Chavanne hill. In 1936 the top half was destroyed by fire and re-built. We believe it remained untouched and unloved until we bought the chalet in May 2004.
We have retained as much as possible of the original character – including the Boisery (woodwork) in the lounge, the hand carved beams, and the end grain flooring.
