When preparing the construction project for a chalet, the choice of land is a crucial issue which it is best to focus on. It plays a considerable role in the quality of life that you can enjoy in this property. This is a flagship item that must meet your personal expectations. Chalets Dunoyer supports you and builds your chalet on all types of terrain. To succeed in your project, we offer you an overview of the elements that are taken into account during the selection.

Accessibility of the land

The best possible location of your chalet must take accessibility into account. Indeed, it is a key factor in the choice of land. Finding a plot with quick and easy access offers optimal living comfort. The accessibility of the land depends on several factors such as climatic conditions, altitude but also the state of communication routes. Furthermore, it is necessary to take into account the distance between the location planned for the chalet and the public road. Generally speaking, we recommend access from the north rather than the south. Favoring the first solution allows you to have the garage to the north. So you can free up the southern part for living spaces.


When choosing the plot which will be used for the construction of your chalet, you must take into account the size of this land. We advise you to allocate a good plot of land for the rooms. Furthermore, it is advantageous to reserve adequate surface area for outdoor spaces. So you can park better and do lots of activities.

The view

The landscapes and reliefs that are offered from your chalet are essential for your comfort and well-being. This element should not be neglected because it constitutes a major asset when reselling your chalet. Chalets Dunoyer ensures that your construction is well exposed to the sun and benefits from a breathtaking view of the mountains thanks to its large openings.

Location and environment

Do you have a preferred location in mind? We advise you to examine its current environment. Indeed, you need to know whether you prefer isolated or more urbanized land, a rural or urban area. It’s up to you to make the decision based on your lifestyle. To form a better opinion, visit the grounds day or night. Also take tours in good weather and bad weather. Choose an isolated location if you want to enjoy the calm and a natural setting far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
