About the property

5 bedrooms, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, ski-in/ski-out, best view in Chamonix

This beautiful fully renovated farmhouse dating from 1833 is located in one of the most sought after places of the Chamonix Valley in a true piece of paradise. Chalet Norel offers true ski-in / ski-out location directly on the famous Coupe du Monde du Kandahar slope “La Verte” which is just above the very famous path called “Saut de la Route”. This 350 m² chalet offers 5 bedrooms, very large open plan living spaces, a central fireplace, a sauna, a steam room, terraces with 7-seat Jacuzzi, stunning dominating views of the Chamonix Valley, the entire Mont Blanc Massif and the beautiful Massif des Fiz. Chamonix (or affectionately known as “Cham”) needs no introduction and is famous worldwide. It is the ideal place for mountain lovers. In the streets of this high mountain town, you will hear languages from all over the world but people who come to this “summit reunion” share the same way of thinking, the same love for mountaineering, its legends, its ethics and simply its rich nature. In the town centre, wherever you are, raise your eyes and you will see “it”: 4810 m of stone, snow, ice, dreams and adventures to come. Chalet Norel offers you this fantastic and sought after place both in summer and winter.

Chale Norel is even more spectacular than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

As we arrived at Chalet Norel greeted by our host , the charming Samanna Lebada, we realised immediately that this was going to be way better than we had dared to hope for. The place was just stunning with its low key elegance and rustic comfort. Whatever we needed was there including sumptuous bathrobes for us to don after a glorious day on the slopes on our way either to the outside Jacuzzy or the handsome sauna or perhaps the beautiful, starry steam chamber. We had every amenities at out fingertips and it was great fun for our large family to prepare meals together around the grand kitchen island or just lounge around in the comfortable sofas by the stylish, but amazingly cozy fireplace. The young people were thrilled to discover their own colourful hideaway loft for them to hang out in. "No adult allowed" was soon the mantra!

There they played games and cards, we just heard the giggles from below,

The chalet is truly ski in and ski out which was great for us with ages from 6 to 75. We saved hours every day being able to put the skis on right outside the front door and glide off the slopes in the evenings. Frankly we had to force ourselves to go out to try the restaurants in Chamonix a couple of evenings because everyone would so much rather remain in our fabulous chalet!

This was truly a vacation to be remembered, thank you, Samanna and Bruno Lebada.
