Your ski to and from the chalet is made easy as we are set in a perfect location to ski in and ski out which is facilitated by a gentle blue run through the woodland to your front door!

Full description of the chalet:
Lower ground floor
With the exception of the fully tiled bathrooms and sauna, the lower floor is cozily carpeted and all rooms have centrally heated radiators with additional ceiling height radiant heaters to each of the bathrooms, for those rare occasions when you may wish to increase the warmth yet further.
Master bedroom (double)
Large comfortable king sized bed with double wardrobes and triple dresser leading to very large fully tiled en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower (if you like power showering - you will not be disappointed with our showers), sink with lit mirrored cabinet, toilet and bidet and floor to ceiling built in shelving unit.
French doors to patio and garden areas, wrapping around the chalet facing the valley and mountain views.
Bedroom 2 (double)
Large king size bed with triple wardrobes and additional hanging space leading to French doors to patio and garden areas wrapping around the chalet facing the valley and mountain views.
Spacious hallway with discrete storage areas under the stairs leading to:
Bathroom 2 (opposite bedroom 2)
Fully tiled bathroom with free-standing shower unit with power shower, toilet and sink and lit mirrored cabinet.
Traditional indoor Swiss wooden sauna, large enough to accommodate a group after a hard day's skiing.
Stairs leading to the ground floor open plan main living area.
Ground floor - open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area
Large sitting room with 2 sets of French windows taking in fully the views over the valley and two mountain areas. Windows are also set to the sides of the sitting and dining area to take further advantage of the views wrapping around the chalet.
There are two large sofas (including a 5 seater and a comfortable large sofa bed), an arm chair, wicker chair, large coffee/tv dinner table, entertainment cabinet with Samsung flat screen tv (HDMI and USB ports) and a satellite tv for when you want to relax or catch up on your favourite programmes. There is also a JVC speaker system. There is a wide selection of books (including some childrens' books).
In addition to the underfloor heating throughout the main living area, there is a large traditional wood burning real fire adding further to the comforts of this already delightfully warm and cozy chalet. Logs are available to buy locally.
The adjoining dining area enjoys views through a set of French doors and large side window. There is a traditional wooden round dining table with seating for up to 10 people, although we prefer more elbow room and usually aim for no more than 8 adult diners.
The open plan living and dining area opens to a fully equipped kitchen with ample storage cupboards, large fridge with integral freezer, electric oven with built in extractor and light over a flat glass hob. There is a microwave, dishwasher, and a kettle for your convenience.
There is a side exit door to the wrap around balcony and garden area.
At the heart of the house is a wooden staircase which leads to the upper and lower bedroom floors. For those bringing toddlers, as you would do usually, we recommend the use of a child safety gate. We have one available for you to use in the chalet - which separates the main living area from the rest of the house.
The main hallway leads to the front door and comprises a cloak cabinet with ample room for coats and shoes and a mirror to check your gear before heading onto the slopes. It's here where many of the board games and there like are kept.
Bathroom 3/ utility
The hallway leads to the third bathroom which comprises a toilet, sink and, as it is near to the front door, we have incorporated a utility area here with a washer/dryer and hanging space/airer to dry ski gear and keep shoes and snow shoes out of the way and cozy on the tiled under floored heating.
There is an ironing board and steam iron for your convenience. The chalet is also fully equipped with the usual cleaning equipment including vacuum, sweeping brushes and mop and bucket.
Set in the eaves with ample head room for adults, and a quaint hide away for the children, are two further adjoining bedrooms. Both are carpeted.
Bedroom 3 (large double sofa bed)
At the top of the open stairs is a well sized room which houses a double sofa bed and storage shelves. A bedroom/game room, it has a flat screen TV to use with X Box (DVD player) and a selection of games. The perfect hide away for children.
HDMI and USB ports to both the TVs - upstairs and down - if you wish to bring a cable.
Bedroom 4 (twin)
Leading from bedroom 3 is a fourth bedroom which enjoys a picture window which bathes the room in light. Slightly smaller than bedroom 3, this is a well sized twin room with bed side table and under bed pull out storage.
Babies and toddlers
We have a travel cot available (please bring your own bedding), 2 high chairs, changing mat, potty and children's bowls and feeding spoons that you can borrow too - but, as with all baby items, we simply ask that you make sure they are properly cleaned before you leave as we don't want any germs hanging around for the little ones!
Linen for the bedrooms and a bath towel each (except separate baby towel) are included in the price of your winter stay. Beds are made for your arrival. In spring, summer and autumn we can arrange linen and towel bails to be provided at cost price. Kitchen towels are not provided.
Garage and heated boot cupboard.
The double height garage is situated next to the front door and is the perfect place to store your skis, snowboards, mountain bikes and any other outdoor equipment you may have. There is a boot cupboard with its own radiator. Bring as much or as little as you like - there is plenty of room to store everything!
We keep our garden furniture in the garage and you are welcome to use all of it, either on the balconies or the garden areas to help you take full advantage of the wonderful and varied views which open to the different mountain ranges and valley beneath. We would simply ask that you pop them back into the garage at the end of your stay.
We have sun loungers, reclining chairs, portable BBQ, outdoor dining table which easily seats six, further chairs and wooden benches.
We have a driveway to fit one car, leading to the garage. However, there is plenty of space for several cars to park on the area beside the road, immediately outside the chalet. This is where we usually park our cars, particularly in winter as the area is cleared of snow regularly by the commune.
Access is via a gently sloping driveway - which is stark contrast to many chalets in the village. So, no clambering up and down steps with your skis or board and/or children! We find this invaluable!
Although not adapted for wheelchair use, our chalet does have the potential to welcome guests with reduced mobility. Depending upon occupancy and your preferences, the living room sofa bed can be used as a bedroom which means there is near level access to the chalet, kitchen, garage, main balcony and bathroom 3 (although please note that shower and bath facilities are only available downstairs). Please do contact us before booking and we will do our best to help.
We have complimentary wifi access in the chalet. Mobile internet access on our portable devices works well for us (as do our 02 &Vodafone mobile phones).
Check in: 3 pm day of arrival
Check out: 10am day of departure.
We try to be flexible when ever possible. We usually rent on a weekly basis Saturday/Saturday but will try our best to accommodate other requests
