Building a chalet on a very steep hill is never an easy task, but for the design office at Grosset Janin it was an exciting challenge! With the Ours de la Rosière project, not only did they manage to work around the difficult terrain, they actually managed to transform it into an asset.

Since 1950, Grosset Janin have been building chalets with great care, skill and dedication. The Ours de la Rosière in Montvalezan is a bit special though, as the client was very much involved in the process and dealt with all the decoration himself. It remains a Grosset Janin project though, with the typical large rooms, plenty of light and high ceilings. As always, only local or nationally-sourced sustainable wood was used and all the fixtures and fittings utilise the latest technologies.

The steep hill means that you enter the Ours de la Rosière at the top, where you’ll find the entrance hall, a ski room and a wine cellar. Down one level and you’ll find the living quarters, a TV room, a huge terrace with jacuzzi and stunning views over the Haute Tarentaise region. On the two lower levels are the sleeping quarters: a master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, three double bedrooms with bathrooms and a dormitory for the children with two made-to-measure double beds that are designed by Grosset Janin. There’s also a sauna.

This is definitely a chalet for families with a lift to facilitate access if you have a pushchair, plenty of baby equipment such as changing tables and highchairs, and lots of space to play around in. Your skiing holiday will never be more relaxed or more fun as everything is designed to make life easy, so you can enjoy some special moments with those you love most.

Many of the fittings have been designed and made to measure by Grosset Janin, including the kitchen, library, bathroom, wine cellar and much of the furniture. It is a truly unique and bespoke chalet that will take your breath away.
