The
Experience

A breathtaking setting for an atmospheric château, 13th century and facing the mountains. There’s an incredible feeling of openness and space, and a house party feel if you stay. Stéphane’s warm personality gives the place soul; Didier is charming; dinners are innovative and delicious and vegetables are from the potager – a glory. Inside: flowers, paintings, sculptures, quirky-chic antiques, music classical and modern, and comforting old-style suites with huge walk-in wardrobes and tip-top bathrooms. Climb snow-topped peaks, collapse by the pool, visit the Château de Miolans. Breakfast will set you up for a hearty day out.

Reviews

It's not often that we stay in a property in France and do not want to leave! Chateau des Allues is one of those magical places that simply exceeded all our expectations. Stephane is the most charming and accommodating host presiding over a beautiful Chateau in a stunning location. Often dining can be a bit of a gamble but in this case the breakfast was superb with a great selection of local artisan breads, home baked cakes, homemade yoghurt and jams/coulis. The evening meals were simply exceptional and absolutely everything is included in the price. Can't wait to go back to this perfect place

We return time and again drawn by Stephane's welcome (he has become a real friend), the comfort, the exceptional food, the atmosphere, the garden, the views. It is a relaxing stopover after a hard day's driving. The best, by far, we have found on our twice yearly trips to our home in Italy.

To be welcomed to the Chateau by Stephan was a wonderful surprise after a disastrous first day in Savoie. We stayed four nights & would happily have made it longer. Your description is wholly accurate (though we didn't see a pool); the food is magnificent & Stephan manages to make all his guests feel at home. Local fizzy on the terrace overlooking the mountains, followed by a delicious meal in the elegant but comfortable dining room - bliss! Would recommend without hesitation.

Eleanor

A superb place to stay, beautifully situated with wonderful views. Stephane is the most perfect and attentive host. Dinner was delicious with home grown produce and we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast, rating it the best we have ever had. The rooms are attractively decorated and extremely clean. We would highly recommend Chateau des Allues.

Local points of interest from Stéphane Vandeville

  • Our organic vegetable garden is made of 88 wooden squares and it mixes vegetables, herbs and flowers. In fact, we got the 1st prize in the national horticultural contest: don't miss it and do enjoy the flavours at dinner.
  • We are close to major ski resorts: Courchevel, Méribel, Les Saisies, Tignes etc.... Spend the first night at our Château and next morning you will be fit and among the first to reach the slopes.
  • The extraordinary fortress of Miolans located in the village of St Pierre d'Albigny, dating back to the XI century, once was a national jail that "welcomed" Marquis de Sade himself: it is worth a visit... but our rooms are better!
  • Experience our lakes, or how about an electric bike ride in the mountains: a sport without (too) much effort! We have many more ideas for you to enjoy the summer.
  • Our village is in the heart of the best vineyards of Savoy, we can help you taste or buy the wines at our recommended producers
  • Château des Allues is located in the national park of les Bauges with protected mountains and architecture, wild animals and plants. We can suggest walks and hikes, please ask us!
