AWARD WINNING CHALET CHOCOLAT sits within its own landscaped alpine garden above the pretty village of Verchaix, near Samoens. From its sunny terraces and balconies Chalet Chocolat enjoys sensational views over the picturesque Samoens valley to the mountains of the Grand Massif and Mont Blanc range beyond. The chocolate box exterior belies its smart, contemporary interior. Snugly wrapped in gorgeous, warm timber in harmony with local tradition, its interior is simple yet sophisticated.
Because we want you to fall in love with Chalet Chocolat and come back again, and again; we’ve added all the luxuries we could dream up, to spoil you rotten. We don’t want you to feel like it’s ‘home from home’. No, we want you to feel indulged, pampered and special
So we designed and built Chalet Chocolat with you in mind. We paid lots of attention to detail, so it would be the best value for your hard-earned cash in the Alps. We’ve gone upscale, more Roche Bobois than Ikea and paid attention to the stuff you can’t see, like 3 x more insulation in the roof and walls. So it makes you feel warmer or cooler depending on the season. It saves heaps on our carbon footprint too.
Now we realise location is everything, which is why we put Chalet Chocolat exactly where it is. We chose the sunniest spot in the valley, with knock-out views from every room, terrace and balcony. It’s only a short stroll to the local bar, restaurants and ski-bus and an hours’ drive to the airport. The age-old axiom still holds, that a property’s location is everything… period.
Chalet Chocolat provides sumptuous luxury at a reasonable price for discerning guests. Chalet Chocolat is a LOW ALLERGEN ENVIRONMENT.
The Grand Massif Ski Area offers a wide variety of terrain, appealing to every ability level; with Mont Blanc ( Western Europe’s highest mountain) as a frequent backdrop, it’s also one of the most beautiful.
The Grand Massif Ski Area boasts an excellent snow record due to its proximity to Mont Blanc and its unique microclimate, as well as 100?s of snow cannons, a recent investment guaranteeing snow-covered pistes on the lower slopes all season.
Massive investment on high-speed infrastructure in the last few years, means that almost all of the 80 lifts across the resort are the most comfortable and fastest of their kind in Europe today, leaving loads more time to ski!
The Grand Massif Ski Area offers the lowest ratio of accommodation capacity to number of ski lifts anywhere, which is why they can boast the lowest queues of any resort in Europe!
The Grand Massif Ski Area has 14 black runs, 51 red, 54 blue and 15 green runs. The Grand Massif also has the longest blue run in Europe the ‘Cascade‘, which meanders down for 14 km’s from the top of the Flaine bowl, through high mountain scenery to the alpine village of Sixt Fer a Cheval.
