La Maison Clarée was built in the eighteenth century and originally accommodated a family with nine children and all their livestock. Its storage areas also provided room for their tools, supplies and fodder. Nowadays, its characteristic vaulted rooms, thick walls, beautiful old doors, quirky little windows and wooden floors provide a wonderful setting for a mountain holiday — cosy and warm in winter, cool and stylish in summer.
You enter La Maison Claree through a front door next to the parking area. This leads into a spacious entrance area with plenty of hanging and boot storage and room to dry outdoor gear. There is a separate WC here and also a utllity room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
The lower level of the main house features a stunning vaulted sitting room. This spacious, yet cosy room has a central stone pillar, a familiar feature of the mountain farmhouses in this area. There is a comfy seating area with sofas and armchairs, a selection of books and games and a table football table. There is also a woodburning stove with a full supply of logs to keep you warm in winter. In summer, this room provides a cool retreat from the heat of the day. The sitting room has TV and DVD player.
