The mill, the Agritourism, and the Spa

Following in the footsteps of our ancestors, we have the necessary adaptations that our changing times require: the use of renewable energy, the addition of the spa, and modernizations. The mill and the sawmill are the core of our activity, water is the source of life and energy, and the mountain is our home.

About us

Our history

The mill has been in our family for five generations. A wedding gift from the great-great-grandmother Maria to her daughter Rosalia and son-in-law Pietro, it made its way into the Chanoux family patrimony. The mill was then passed on to their sons, one of whom, Arturo, in 1948 sent the money necessary for the construction of a water-powered sawmill, made with his work in the mines in Belgium first and then in the construction sites of Punta Helbronner. Today it rests in the center of the dining room. That sawmill made it possible to further utilize the water, which until then had only been used for the mill; the concept of artifice complexe was thus given new life.
In 1994, Arturo’s daughter Piera and her husband Mauro decided to transform the mill into a farmhouse. Over these 20 years of activity, their children have joined them. Today you can find Alessia working by their sides.

Water and Nature

A Relaxing Stay

Le Moulin des Aravis overlooks the Ayasse stream, in front of a wonderful forest of conifers and beeches. We are in the wild valley of Champorcher, a few minutes from the Park of Mont Avic.

Warm and welcoming

The rooms

Our rooms have different souls: characteristic grains of wood, rusticity, freedom, or romanticism are just some of their characteristics. Choose the one that suits you best.

Wellness area

The Evi Spa

Take a break to regenerate away from everything and everyone, contemplate the waterfall, surrounded by the warmth of ancient wood. A personal bubble, apart from time and space, lulled by the sound of the Ayasse stream.

A sensory experience

The Restaurant

We offer our guests a sensory experience – through our dishes, their flavors and their scents – but also visual and tactile, thanks to the room and its history.
