The Catawa Chalet

The comfort and prestige of a luxury chalet at an altitude of 2000 meters in the heart of the Vars les claux resort.


We put all our love into the development of this project. The mountain spirit reigns there, simplicity, great comfort, noble materials, luxury spirit in the heart of the mountains.

The old larch wood, the slate roofs, the alfalfa stone on the ground, the wood-burning fireplace with insert, but also the modernity of waxed concrete for the bathrooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen. For comfort: underfloor heating, a ski room with boot dryer, a hammam for relaxation, large beds with mattress toppers and cushions from the PYRENEX brand, natural hospitality products from the CASANERA brand (made in the Corsican maquis ) for bathrooms. This chalet is equipped so that you can spend a wonderful holiday with family and friends.

Rental for 14 people.

Live a magical stay


We had great pleasure in building this chalet in the mountains: the childish ideal of the wooden cabin but very comfortable. We welcome our guests to Catawa so that they can experience a magical stay at an altitude of 2000 meters.
In our absence, Sylvie Gras will take care of welcoming you and making your stay as pleasant as possible.
