About Marilyn de Bois

My name is Marilyn de Bois and I am the owner of Chalet Bams. I am married and a proud mother of two beautiful daughters. This Chalet belonged to my aunt and am so happy and proud that I can call myself owner because as a nice memory of my aunt. Yvonne Bams was her name and she lived for the mountains. She has climbed the mountains until she was 70 with so much passion! Of course always in the company of a guide. On one of the mountains there is a bench placed with her name on it to honor her. She was actually a legend in Arolla. That is why I named her chalet after her. I work as a stewardess at KLM and am so happy to occasionally not to be in the air, but to stay in the mountains without having to use an airline to visit this beautiful oases in the mountains.

Because of my experience of staying at sometimes 5 star hotels, I found it absolutely a must to offer my chalet as comfortable as possible. It is important to me that everything is perfectly maintained, is clean, and of course the necessary luxurious comfort is present. I therefore hope that, just as I do every time, can fully enjoy it.

Marilyn de Bois purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Marilyn de Bois chose Arolla

I really wanted to keep chalet Bams in the family. My brothers and sister, however, were not interested, so I took over her chalet myself.

The environment is so beautiful and soothing. In the winter I enjoy the cross-country ski run that is right outside my door. I also love to sit on my balcony enjoying the sun that will shine around 10:00 in the morning. My chalet is facing the south what is so there will be full up sun during the day. In the summer I enjoy the beautiful greenery that appears everywhere, and the walks that I can make around my chalet. The sound of the cows with the bells they wear around their neck makes me realize what wonderful it is to be allowed to stay in this nature.

My chalet is on a river that you can see when you look down. The wonderful sound of the water flowing from the mountains sounds like music to my ears. A small stream runs down my terrace. So actually I also have a mini river running in front of my terrace. My plans are therefore stay longer periods in my chalet in the future. I call it my little paradise on this earth. The peace that la Monta radiates is a gift for me.

What makes this chalet unique

As a small child, I visited my aunt every year with my mother and brothers and sister. In the next couple of years, I visited her with with my family.

The moment I open the door of my chalet, one can smell the wood. And then I know for sure, I'm home again.

After unpacking, my husband and I are sitting at the balcony to enjoy the view and the sun and a delicious glass of wine. When it gets colder a little later we light the fireplace and enjoy the warmth and the sound of the crackling wood, in our cozy living room.

Because there is an open kitchen, my husband and our daughters can sit at the bar for a cozy drink while I prepare the food.

When it is time to go to bed we close the shutters and are already looking forward to being able to open them again in order to enjoy the beautiful view again. In the master bedroom there are two French doors that provide access to the terrace. I always open these doors in the morning and enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains while enjoying a delicious cup of tea.

In the summer it is a treat to light the barbecue. I have had a large barbecue built so that all plates and meat can be placed on it.

For groceries shopping you can go to Arolla, or after a short drive at the Coop in Evolène. Do you really want a day out, then you can go to Sion to have a nice morning. Sion is a real must to visit. It is a beautiful city with many nice shops and cozy terraces.

Because my aunt had bought land around the chalet, a lot of privacy was created. Now you really have the peace and you can enjoy the view without looking inside the neighbors.

A beautiful hideaway in the heart of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is superbly located near the end of the road leading up from the Evolene valley to Arolla. Be aware that in the winter you really should have snow tyres and chains (although the latter is are a just in case as the road is well maintained and kept clear).

La Monta is a small collection of just a handful of chalets, but only 5 minutes drive or a 20 minute walk/snowshoe through the woods to Arolla, where there is a small handy supermarket, a friendly sports equipment shop and a couple of hotels.

The chalet is well designed, warm and cosy with lovely touches - in Winter a traditional stone heat source as well as the radiators and a roaring wood burner will keep you warm and cosy.

The main living/dining room upstairs has fabulous views of the mountains, including the Pigne d’Arolla and daily visits from some friendly squirrels on the balcony. The two bedrooms downstairs are a good size and the main one leads to a sunny terrace.

If you enjoy snowshoeing there are many trails on your doorstep or a brief car ride away. If you like cross country skiing, you can put your skis on by the chalet and join well marked pistes which are groomed daily in season. And a short drive gets you to the downhill pistes at Arolla, which comprise chair and drag lifts and didn’t seem too busy during our stay.

We’ve been to the area in summer and keen hikers will enjoy a range of day walks - there’s a couple of refuges in the area open in season if you fancy a night in the mountains.

Chalet Bams is a delight. We’d recommend it highly and will certainly return.

Luxurious stay in a quiet house situated at the end of Val d'Herens.

  • 5 of 5

In summer this place is ideal for those who looking for peace and quiet in nature and those who like to climb the mountains. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The owner of the house is helpful and open to the needs of her guests.

We spent a very good time in this house.

Oase van rust tenmidden van de bergen

  • 5 of 5

Ondertussen hebben we met onze drie kinderen reeds 10 maal deze chalet gehuurd. Op zich zegt dat genoeg denk ik dan... Het voelt bijna als thuiskomen. Deze chalet is vooral geschikt voor mensen die rust opzoeken. In elk seizoen heeft het hier z'n charme. In het ski seizoen zit je dichtbij Arolla in de zomer en herfst kan je naar de verschillende cabannes in de buurt (cabanne de la Tza, Bertol, aiguilles rouges en via col de riet matten naar cabanne de Dix). Marilyn zorgt er telkens voor dat de chalet van alle luxe voorzien is. Er stroomt een riviertje naast het terras (met BBQ) en in de diepte ligt een rivier waar de kinderen in de zomermaanden naar hartelust kunnen spelen. Je kan zelf koken of naar het restaurant van hotel de la Tza gaan. Jean-Paul en Ghislaine zullen je verwelkomen op traditioneel zwitserse of italiaanse gerechten. Er is een handig supermarktje in het centrum van Arolla (10 min stappen) en in de zomermaanden kan je vers brood hebben in een broodschuif net aan de chalet (bakkerij uit Evolene). Voor alle inlichtingen kan je terecht bij Patricia en Basil Bournissen in Arolla.

kortom, wij zijn dolenthousiast over deze regio en deze chalet.

EXCEPTIONNEL!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 semaines de vacances entre fin février 2016 et début avril 2016 (c'est la première fois que cela nous arrivait)

Nous sommes tombés amoureux de la région dès les premiers jours et le chalet a immédiatement correspondu à nos attentes (après un premier repérage fin septembre 2015...)

Agencement et équipements parfaits, décoration classe, isolation acoustique parfaite (très rare), literie idéale et neuve (très important pour 5 semaines de séjour à 1800 mètres d'altitude), situation idéale avec accès direct au restaurant de Tsa à 4 minutes à pied du chalet. Les commerces d'Arolla suffisent pour les petits achats (Evolène n'est qu'à 15 minutes en voiture du chalet) et la livraison quotidienne du boulanger à 100 mètres est un plus.

Nous avons pu profiter de la quiétude de la région avec notre Saint-Bernard qui a bien profité des promenades dans son pays natal! Les pistes de ski sont idéales pour les amateurs car bien variées.

Un chalet pour y vivre plus que 5 semaines! Avec regret nous sommes retournés dans le nord nord...
