Originally from the Valais region (Switzerland), the mazot traditionally referred to a small rustic stone and wood farmhouse consisting of a bedroom, a storeroom and a kitchen. This type of dwelling was initially used as a pied-à-terre for winemakers and their families working in the Valais mountains. It was then recognizable by its timber plank construction (interlocking grooved planks).

The mazot was also present in Savoie, particularly in the region of Vallorcine and Chamonix. In Savoie, the mazot mingled the concept of cabanon with that of granary: it then acted as a "multi-purpose safe" to keep important papers, cereals, victuals and precious belongings in the event of an incident in the country. main chalet.

Small in origin, the Savoyard (or Alpine) mazot has evolved today. It now generally refers to a small wooden building with a studio or chalet function (depending on the model), cozy and comfortable.

Sometimes used as complements of housing, the current mazots can also constitute small totally independent cottages. They are growing in popularity among mountain guests because of their authentic charm, comfort and good value for money.
