The Rhone/French Alps region

Chalet Maya is located in the peaceful and slightly rural village of Les Grassonets which is near the ski area of Grand Montets in Argentiere.

By foot it is only about a 10 minute walk to the ski area parking, but its just moments away by car to the cable car station.


The Chamonix Valley is well known for its extraordinary natural beauty, epic skiing and local traditions.

The five separate ski areas cater for those needing gentle nursery slopes on on hand and those seeking off piste terrain and glacier skiing at the other end of the spectrum.

The town of Chamonix itself is a hub for skiing, mountaineering and mountain biking along with trekking and hiking. In fact there are so many activities available in and around Chamonix that the resort is busy almost year round.
