Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Val-d'Illiez - Chalet Carioca

All the comforts in a beautiful, cozy family chalet

Les Crosets is located on the Swiss side of the 'Portes du Soleil', the largest skiing and hiking area in Europe.

In winter, there's something nicer than a cozy, equipped with every luxury chalet next to the ski slopes?

And in summer, wait 650km of marked paths on the super sports or the lazy walker (the Mountain Bike European Championships are held here).

Chalet Carioca is beautifully situated slightly away from the village, at 1850m altitude, with breathtaking views of the Dents du Midi. In Les Crosets (5 min drive), there's the bare minimum for shopping, a sports shop, a few pubs and good restaurants, in Champéry (20 mins drive) are the fashionable restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

If you are primarily interested in a great skiing or hiking holiday with family or friends in a cozy and luxurious house, then Chalet Carioca is the perfect choice.

About Gabriella Baumann-Harmann

Our family always spends summer and winter vacation up in our chalet. We wouldn't want to miss this for nothing in the world. There is a very special energy and peace up here - relaxation is guaranteed !

Gabriella Baumann-Harmann purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Gabriella Baumann-Harmann chose Portes du Soleil

Chalet Carioca is particularly cozy - winter and summer - and each one finds his thing to do here. Be it a hot sauna after skiing, a good film in the TV room, a nice chat with friends and a glass of wine in front of the fire place, a cheerful lunch on the terrace with view of the Dents du Midi - one just enjoys great moments !

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet Carioca is located 200m away from the slopes and in two minutes one skis down to the main hub of the whole region of 'Portes du Soleil'. Great slopes and great powder skiing for who likes that ! In summer you can go hiking on all the marked trails or mountain biking (the European Mountain Bike Championship takes place here). In Champéry (12 km away) there is a sporting center with tennis courts and a swimming pool, in Val d'Illiez (12 km) there is a newly renovated Thermal bath, in Aigle (20 km) you will find a beautiful Golf course and wine tasting and the Lake of Geneva (30 km) is a fantastic destination for outdoor swimming in summer. And, do not miss the Jazz Festival of Montreux in July !
