Location & area
Chalet Saskia is perched on the edge of a wooded meadow only three minutes walk from the main cable car.
The Chalet is situated in the rural traditional village of Vaujany near to the main lift station and swimming pool/sports complex. Vaujany faces the splendid "Massif des Grandes Rousses" mountains and encaptures the charm and the seduction of an authentic Alpine high altitude village. Blending tradition and modernity, Vaujany proposes visitors - top class skiing, swimming, skating, cycling and trekking facilities amongst an unspoilt environment in beautiful mountain landscapes.
In the evening there are shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy when the village comes alive with torch descents, shows and events.
Vaujany benefits from a state of the art escalator which connects the top with the bottom of the village. Up the top there is the Galerie Marchande with various shops/ bars and restaurants and then there is another similar development around the main lift station at the bottom...shops, bars, restaurants, etc. The escalator connects the two and allows the people at the top of the village to ride easily down to the lift station and back again. The 160 place Cable Car systems takes you from the village at 1100 metres to 2700 metres 'The next stop up is 3300 metres at the Pic Blanc looking out on to the Mont Blanc, the Grand Paradis, the Meije and the Ecrin National Park.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
