Restoration of old alpine chalets

The restoration or reconstruction of former mountain chalets, which have lost their agricultural vocation, may be authorized by the prefect, on condition that they protect and enhance mountain heritage, without undermining the preservation of spaces, landscapes and environments characteristic of mountain heritage.

To explain these complex regulations and establish the procedure for examining applications, the French government has produced a guide that has been approved by the departmental commission for nature, sites and landscapes (CDNPS) and the departmental commission for the protection of natural, agricultural and forest areas (CDPENAF): guide relative à la restauration des anciens chalets d’alpage

As an elected official, professional or owner, it will help you draw up a project to restore or rebuild a mountain chalet, taking care to preserve its heritage value, a symbol of simplicity and harmony with nature.

To submit a file for the restoration of an old mountain pasture chalet, you’ll need to fill in the demande d’autorisation préfectorale pour la restauration ou la reconstruction d’un ancien chalet d’alpage (Only files that include all the requested documents will be processed). Technical fact sheets have also been drawn up by the DDT , UDAP and the Conseil d’Architecture, d’Urbanisme et de l’Environnement (CAUE):
