Introduction to Mayoux

Today Mayoux has about a hundred inhabitants and thirty tourist beds.

The village has a beautiful location on an intermediate terrace on the southwest side of the valley. Located at a crossroads, Mayoux has a centre around the chapel and two linear areas along the route of the old road.

In the eighteenth century the village developed at the expense of the locality called Frasses today.

Mayoux made the news in an unhappy way on March 10, 1817. That day, a large avalanche from the northside of the Roc d’Orzival, destroyed many buildings and houses, causing deaths and injuries.

Before, life in Mayoux was harsh. Looking through the accounts of the village from 1887, one realizes how every penny was important, for example for the construction of a new basin. In 1915, the accounts for the bread oven and the allocation of money to the school were discussed at the meetings.

Today Mayoux has about a hundred inhabitants and thirty tourist beds.
