Well Appointed- Comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm well appointed chalet with big beds and quiet rooms in a secluded part of Chamonix and we still benefited from watching the sun set over Mont Blanc as we ate at the barbecue.

Transport links were excellent as was the road in and we found it easily. We went out one night and got to the town centre in 3 minutes by car.

It has all the necessaries and more. We made full use of the hot tub and sauna after getting soaked in the mountains. The chalet was warm and inviting.

It really feels like a mountain home form home with a careful blend of beautifully crafted wooden interiors and amazingly warm stone floors. It even has a secluded office for getting on with the intrusions of modern life and a playroom to park

Traditional look/contempory luxury - HUGE CHALET

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is awesome - SO much space! We had the kids and they wanted to hang in hot tub then in the office and the TV room on the bean bags whilst we were drinking wine in front of the fire! Cooked on the barbeque on the sun-deck with the most outrageous view of the Dru and Mont Blanc. Super-comfy beds and nice en-suites. As usual with chalets, far too hot unless you turn the radiators off and open the windows!

Magnifique et parfait

  • 5 of 5

Superbe chalet avec 8 grandes chambres et un séjour spacieux. La déco est vraiment soignée, l'équipement de la cuisine complet. Belle cheminée, réserve de bois, chambres aux lits douillets et couettes épaisses. Belles salles-de bain en suite. Grand sauna intérieur et jacuzzi extérieur qui permet de savourer une coupe de champagne en admirant le ciel étoilé ou le Mont Blanc. Bref un sans faute, jusqu'à l'accueil de l'équipe pro de Mountain Base. Une très belle adresse pour notre réunion commerciale.

Nous sommes partis avec toute ma famille c'est-à-dire 4 couples et ma maman de 85 ans, 4 couples avec des bébés et des enfants. Chaque petite famille a pu avoir son coin et son indépendance avec sa chambre et sa salle de bain et ça, ça change la vie! le chalet est très bien équipé, nous avons eu un temps magnifique et passé une semaine de rêve en profitant au maximum du sauna et jacuzzi dans cette station de rêve qu'est Chamonix!!!
