The Experience

The contemporary renovation of this alpine hideaway sparkles. The front door leads you down a few steps; inside, natural light beams across arched whitewashed ceilings with Scandi-minimalist décor and wood-panelled walls.

Find basics in the kitchen cupboards – it’s open plan so chatting and cooking come easy. Throw open the stable style door on sunny days and soak up the rays and mountain views on your terrace; live like a local and stroll into town for an espresso.

It’s a 15-minute drive to the Paradiski domaine – explore the mountains on snowshoes, skis or boards – ask your knowledgeable hosts how and when to do it best. It’s superb in summer too – hike, bike, zip wire and zorb your way through the valleys. Pick up a pizza for dinner, cosy up with a board game and film, and sink into crisp cotton sheets in your bedroom.

Reviews

Cosy hideaway in a small village, a 20-minute drive from the enormous Paradaski ski area. Lovely big bed and a well equipped kitchen. Nicola and Simon were super friendly and welcoming.

Location

The neighbourhood

Charming and small Macot is a world away from glitzy ski resorts. There’s a boulangerie and supermarket a few minutes’ walk, as well as a café/bar, pizzeria, town square and church. Find more restaurants in Aime (2km), Bourg and La Plagne (15km) and Les Arcs (34km). You’re 15 minutes’ drive to the Paradiski domaine, which covers popular La Plagne and Les Arcs, great for skiing and boarding of all abilities.

Local points of interest from Nicola & Simon Braggins

  • Local summer events include the Tour de France passing by, music festivals, firework displays, markets and much more. Day trips to Italy, 90 minutes away, are possible through the Col de Petit St Bernard - it's inaccessible except on skis in winter!
  • The Paradiski resorts of La Plagne, Montalbert and Montchavin are within 15 minutes' drive, with skiing for all abilities. Les Arcs can be reached either by the Vanoise Express cable car or by driving 12km to Bourg St Maurice for the funiculaire
  • There's so much more to the mountains than just skiing and non-skiers are welcome. Superb snow-shoeing trails are easily accessible on both sides of the Tarentaise Valley, and the Olympic bobsleigh run is just up the road
  • In summer, Maison Lennox is surrounded by options for almost every activity you can think of - road, mountain and e-biking, running, kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting, swimming, treetop adventures, fabulous walks, via ferrata and paragliding
  • We can help arrange ski, snowboard and snowshoe lessons and rental in the winter, as well as white water rafting, kayaking and bike rental in summer
  • Our aim is to ensure that everyone who visits Maison Lennox has a relaxing stay - whether you spend the day out on the slopes, river, lake or roads, or whether you just want to drink in the ever-changing mountain views

Introducing

Nicola & Simon Braggins

Having lived in France several times before, former Londoners Nicola and Simon bit the bullet and moved permanently in 2018, after buying the first place they viewed. Nicola works in the charity sector and Simon’s a photographer. Enthusiastic and friendly, they adore the mountains and have masses of advice on how to explore them best. They live upstairs.
