Chalet Madeleine (Ayer)

Chalet Madeleine dates from the 16th century, and was lived in until the 1960s. It shows how wood and stone were combined in traditional architecture. The interior comprises a kitchen and a bedroom, and is extremely simple in its style and contents.

The basic elements can be seen: fireplace, pot hook, mantelpiece, soapstone stove and bunk bed.

Groups may book a guided tour of Chalet Madeleine and the village of Ayer.
