Why Jonathan Law chose Argentière

You will find nothing else like it. It is a true winter wonderland with such an incredible setting. The gives the ambience of being tucked away deep in the secluded mountains but you can access the village centre of Argentiere on foot within 3-4 minutes.

It is also possible to a ski in ski out option to the infamous les Grands Montets ski resort - located approx 5 minutes from chalet via the cross country ski track.

2 x mountain streams pass by the chalet providing beautiful sounds of cascading water. It is truly amazing!

Wonderful Stay in the Forest of Argentiere.

  • 5 of 5

Warm Chalet in the Forest. A little few minutes from the car, and you are in a dream: Forest , snow, silence, you don’t see the village nor the people or the cars. Jon is great for anything you need. Not so luxury in the details but it’s what I need. Believe me, taste the experience.

A fantastic trip. Great food, staff and service

  • 5 of 5

I think that the summary covers it well. Marmotte Mountain put on a fantastic trip as they always do. The chalet was its usual high standard and the food and wine were particularly good. However it was the team that were particularly excellent with the service they offered, as they were always able to provide restaurant tips and get us where we wanted to go in the resort and when. Given the conditions wee faced in the second half of our trip this is no small feat!

A trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan and his staff provided my family an amazing week of exquisite food that was prepared in our chalet by Daniel, our personal chef. He went above and beyond and prepared bag lunches for our ski days. Jess, our hostess had breakfast waiting for us each morning and was always available to transport us and provide information/suggestions for our recreation. Jon arranged and scheduled our ski guides, made restaurant reservations, and helped arrange an amazing holiday experience for my family. Their hospitality was superior!

The chalet was very comfortable and in a beautiful location-tucked away in the woods with easy access to the village and ski trails. We were so glad to be removed from the busier towns in the valley and enjoy quaint Augentiere. My family and I will definitely travel back again.

Repeat Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Third time back to the Marmotte retreat. Love this place! Amazing setting and perfect alpine hideaway. Jon and his staff are always excellent and always on hand. Nothing is ever ‘too much bother!’ This year Laura and Dan looked after us perfectly: pick ups, great snow advice and truly sublime food! Would spend more time only have to go back to work. Can’t wait to see you all next year. Julian

Wonderful week in the Alps!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! Our host and chef were top notch. The food was incredible and a highlight of our trip. Daniel accommodated our 3.5 year old daughter with her own kid-friendly delicious meals as well! We skied various mountains and went on multiple excursions, such as to the thermal baths in Italy, hot air ballooning, paragliding, etc, and our host was extremely helpful and accommodating in helping us plan our week. The chalet was very warm and cozy! We loved spending the evening by the fireplace drinking delicious wine after a fun-filled day! We would recommend this trip to everyone!

Top food and hosting in Argentiere

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year with Marmotte Mountain in Argentiere and they surpass themselves every time. The food was exceptional in the chalet and the hosts Laura and Daniel were great fun. The conditions in the valley were tough owing to high winds and lift closures but Jon ensured the that we got to ski in the best areas taking us to resorts we’d not visited and with excellent recommendations for restaurants. Everyone had a great time and we hope to be back next year.
