The History of the Pinchèvre Cottage

At the time of purchase in 2007, what was to become the Pinchèvre Cottage, was merely an abandoned barn building.


In spite of the difficulties of restoration and the vagaries of snow and rain, nothing could dampen the owners’ enthusiasm.  In October 2011 Catherine and Joël finally opened the Pinchèvre self-catering cottage for guests.  Every effort has been made to make your stay as comfortable as possible :  only top quality materials, easy access for prams, wheelchairs and the disabled, user-friendly kitchen, spacious and comfortable bedrooms.
