A nice chalet in the swiss alps in Valais in a small village ideal for walking and skiing

Le chalet se trouve dans la commune d'Orsières dans un petit de village de 35 habitants situé dans le Val Ferret. C'est un vrai chalet de montagne alliant tradition et modernité que j'ai personnellement transformé. Il possède un grand balcon en bois qui donne sur le jardin et la rivière qui coule en contrebas. La destination est idéale en hiver pour faire du ski (piste, randonnée, fond) et toute l'année pour faire des randonnées dans une nature sauvage et observer la riche faune et flore de la région du St-Bernard. Il est possible d'accéder au logement en transports publics et en voiture à 20 minutes de Martigny, 1h de Chamonix et 1h d'Aoste.

The chalet is sitting in a small village of 35 people in the Val Ferret in Canton of Valais. It is a typically wooden mountain house that mixed tradition and modernity. I renovate it by myself. It owned a big wood balcony that overlooks the river and the garden. The destination is really good to enjoy the walking and skiing (2 small family resort call La Fouly and Champex are at 10 min by car and the famous Verbier resort is at 20 min). You can easily watch wild animals and admire a rich flora of the St-Bernard aresa. It is possible to reach the place with public transports and by car in 20 min of Martigny, 1h of Chamonix and 1h of Aosta.
