La Chaumine is a unique, charming and sunny chalet for 36 guests offering the most stunning views on the magnificent mountain range of La Meije.

La Chaumine is located on a south faced flank opposite the magnificent mountain range of La Meije, in the authentic hamlet of Ventelon at 1800m. It is only a five-minute drive from the town of La Grave La Meije that is a world famous paradise for off-piste skiing.



The Chalet is a former hotel famous among extreme skiers. The chalet was fully renovated in 2012 retaining its original character. La Chaumine is easily accessible located only one hour drive from Grenoble and two hours drive from Lyon and Turin Airport. Both in winter and summer, it is the perfect base for a wide array of activities.



The La Grave skiing area is quite unique. The massif of La Meije offers the biggest lift-accessed off-piste skiing in the world. Served by the Meije cable car, it provides access to high altitude mountains, up to 3550 meters with 2120 vertical meters of freeriding terrain in an outstanding setting of extended glaciers and corridors.

The area also hosts two small sunny family resorts, Chazelets and Villar d’Arène, each of them featuring ESF ski schools, perfect places for first-time skiers or those wanting to perfect their skiing techniques. Also, the famous ski resorts Les 2Alpes and Serre Chevalier are within a 30 min drive.


The area is a well-known cycling paradise (road and MTB). La Chaumine is situated just off the famous Cols du Lautaret and Galibier, and only 20 minutes drive from many other mythical climbs such as L’Alpe-Duez and Col de L’Izoard.

Furthermore La Grave is the perfect area for hiking, swimming in pristine mountain lakes, rock climbing, paragliding, rafting, cannoning, fishing, via ferrata, yoga and laid back family entertainment. The town offers many events organised throughout the year.
