Open all year round, our boutique alpine B&B, Maison Caramel, has five charming bedrooms, plus a self-contained studio. All the rooms are ensuite and comfortably furnished. Each room has its own character and individual style, but all preserve the feeling of french farmhouse simplicity.

Most rooms have feather duvets and pillows (let us know if you have an allergy), and all have ensuites equipped with hair dryers and heated towel rails. The B&B rate includes bed linen and towels too. There’s also free WIFI available in the sitting room, and most of the bedrooms (ask when you book).

If you’re on a budget, you may prefer a room or dormitory-style bed in our separate gite d’etape, Caramelli Lodge, on the top floor of the building.

A note on the house

Maison Caramel is an old farmhouse with nearly 150 years of history. We’ve preserved as many of the original features as we could, including the floorboards. We’ve done our best to insulate them, but it does mean the lower rooms won’t meet the sound-proofing expectations of those used to purpose-built hotels. If this is a concern, ask to stay on the 2nd floor (Village or Montagne), or the new top floor.


The Penthouse

Caramelli hiver

The self-contained Penthouse on the top floor has four ensuite bedrooms (sleeps up to 12) and is accessed by log steps cut into the hillside at the side of the house. It backs on to woodland and has a garden with lovely mountain and valley views. There’s a large living area with vaulted beamed ceilings and massive picture windows framing a wonderful view of the north face of the Bellecote.

It can be rented self-catered or catered for cycling, walking and skiing holidays. Prices start from 795€ self-catered off-peak.
