The Chalet Viso is located in the small hamlet of La Chalp in the Arvieux Valley.

It is a magnificent setting to relax, take in the views and forget about life back home. . From the guest house it's possible to walk to the Col Néal with its glacial lakes, the historic chalets at Clapeyto, the pretty village of Souliers and its beautiful lake above, as well as the pastures surrounded by rocky peaks at Furfand.
The Chalet Viso is run by welcoming host Jean. For the last 3 years he has been running his lovely guest house, located in an old farm near the famous col d'Izoard. Jean's energy and enthusiasm for the area and his outdoor activities is contageous and he'll happily spend plenty of time explaining routes or providing snippets of local knowledge.
The Chalet Viso is a guest house full of local character, perfect for welcoming guests . There are 6 comfortable en-suite rooms on two different levels each with an open balcony in front looking out over the mountains. Downstairs there is a large dining room and a large vaulted lounge with a huge open fire to keep things warm on colder evenings. In front of the Chalet Viso are a number of seats and benches to enjoy the warm sunshine, in an area which has 300 sunny days a year. Comfortable, yet original, this small guest house is a relaxing place to stay.
They provide delicious evening meals, with a number of original dishes, as well as some hearty meals providing energy for the following day's walk. The four course meal is accompanied by good wine. You may well be sharing the large dining table with other guests from all over the world, often walkers, adding to the fun and interest.
