Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Chamonix - Mont Blanc area - Chalet Pres des Cimes

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, renovated chalet sleeping 8 people

Près des Cimes has been fully refurbished resulting in a spacious chalet with traditional charm and modern day facilities. It's ski-in/ski-out location is unusual for the Chamonix Valley, where such properties are rare to find.

The chalet sleeps up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms, all of which can be made up as double or twin beds. On the first floor, there's a large open-plan living area with an open fire, large windows, WIFI and satellite TV. The dining table comfortably seats 8 people and has beautiful mountain views. The kitchen is fitted and well- equipped and also on this level is the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom. On the ground floor, there are the 3 other bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room, plus the main bathroom. There is an additional WC and a washing machine is in the boiler room.

Pres des Cimes' location makes it stand out. It has breathtaking views up the Chamonix valley which can be enjoyed from the large terrace which is accessed from the living area via sliding, glass doors. With the home run of the les Houches ski area behind the chalet, it makes it one of the few ski in/ski out options.

Please note that it is advisable to have a car in this location.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.

Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canoeing and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; a sports centre with an indoor and outdoor 50m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi, the list goes on!

Pres des Cimes is situated right on the pistes of les Houches, offering a genuine ski-in, ski-out location which is a rarity in the Chamonix Valley. The chalet sits high up the mountain and has superb panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and into the valley below. For skiing, you can ski straight onto the Aillouds (blue) piste from the garden which leads straight to the main lift, le Prarion, in les Houches.

Please note that it is advisable to have a car in this location, there is no public transport that passes close to the chalet.

Other Activities: Rock climbing

Golf: There are several good quality golf courses in the local area, including Evian (venue for the European Masters), Esery and Bossey as well as several other mountain courses, all within an hour's drive. However, Chamonix has its own golf club, 5 km to the east of the town centre, in les Praz. The 18 hole course was designed by the world famous Robert Trent Jones Senior in setting between the Mont-Blanc range and the massif of the Aiguilles rouges. There can't be many courses in the world with views to rival the Chamonix course.

Green fees vary from low to high season and booking is possible from 24 hours in advance.
