4 bedroom chalet in Chamonix to rent for winter season rentals
Modern Chamonix chalet with ensuite rooms, Jacuzzi and mountain views
Jacuzzi / hot tub, log fire, WiFi, satellite TV, Media PC, parking
The chalet is a great choice for groups or families, who want to have easy access to ski the whole Chamonix Valley and still be within walking distance from the town centre. It has a large living area, en-suite rooms with double or single beds, views to the Mont Blanc and Brevent chains and an outdoors Jacuzzi, plus a south facing terrace.
Located close to the Gaillands lake in Chamonix, this modern chalet is constructed in traditional Savoyarde style by Nicodex, the master builder of mountain refuges and closely reflects this pedigree, with a wealth of wooden beams, an open plan lounge and dining area for socialising and a charming open fireplace constructed in stone and wood. It offers spacious, luxury accommodation for 8 people with stunning views and an outdoor hot tub. The chalet benefits from free wifi and a media PC.
However the resemblance to a mountain hut ends here, the first floor bedrooms are all en-suite and of similar size. Each are named after the stunning views you can experience from their balconies – Brevent allows you a 180 panorama from Les Houches across Le Aiguillette to the Brevent, Midi takes in the Aiguille de Midi, Mont Blanc itself and the Bossons Glacier and Grepon adds a view of that
lassic alpine peak. All have built in wardrobes, TVs and DVD players and have the flexibility of either twin or king sized beds. Each ensuite bathroom has a washbasin and toilet and a hairdryer. Two of these have large showers, with the third bathroom having a double ended bath (no tap end!) with overhead shower. On the lower floor of the chalet is the Refuge, constructed by a local Chamonix carpenter and high mountain guide to provide a more authentic mountain refuge experience, with bunk beds, though ours are full sized and come with toasty warm white cotton duvets. If you want to bring your own scratchy blanket however for more authenticity, please feel free!
The main living area of the house is open plan, with lots of natural light. There are three sets of patio doors leading to a large, wrap around south facing terrace complete with Jacuzzi hot tub and magnificent mountain views of the Mont Blanc Massif. There is a fully equipped kitchen with large Miele fridge freezer, oven and microwave and Bosch dishwasher, a dining area for 10 and a lounge area with comfy leather sofas, a surround sound system, flatscreen TV with UK satellite TV and a media player. This floor includes a small office area and a guest toilet with washbasin. Downstairs there is a utility area, complete with Bosch washing machine and separate tumble-dryer, and the lower ground floor also includes a ski and boot room with boot drier, which can also be accessed directly from outside via the double garage and finally, there is a table tennis table for the competitive amongst you.
The chalet is located in a quiet area near lakes and woodland, yet with amazing transport links to access the whole of the Chamonix valley and a 20 minute flat walk to Chamonix town. There is parking for 3 cars. There is local shopping with bakery, supermarket and pharmacy with a few bars and restaurants nearby.
The chalet is 20 minutes flat walk into town.
