Montvilliers is an old alpine farming hamlet in a beautiful spot just below Montalbert. There are lots of good walks, cross country skiing and mountain biking routes straight from the door. The hamlet is very quiet, reached along narrow country lanes with very little through traffic.
There’s an excellent restaurant and bar in Longefoy, the next village (20 minute walk), and you can also walk up to the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert, with more shops and restaurants open during the summer and winter seasons (25 minutes depending on conditions, unmarked forest trails). Its tranquil old fashioned atmosphere is perfect for a relaxed alpine escape.
