It combines the charm of the big traditional mountain houses with the modern conveniences of luxury chalets. For a successful holiday, it is essential that your family and friends enjoy a living environment with exceptional spaces and volumes. Come discover that for architects, luxury is space. It is one of the assets of Le Grand Chalet with its authenticity. “Le Grand Chalet” is aptly named because you will not lack space in this huge house of almost 500 m². Your family and friends, children and adults, will quickly find their feet for an exceptional stay. In addition, you will appreciate the 100 m² South-exposed larch terrace. In front of you, there are panoramic views of the entire resort of Serre Chevalier, from the foothills of Briançon in the East to the Col du Lautaret in the West. Enjoy the infrared sauna to reduce stress or a billiards game between friends: enjoy your holidays. There is a 4x9 m pool in the chalet and it is available during the entire summer. It is equipped with a heat pump as well as a safety rolling shutter, a solar shower and a large 120 m² natural stone terrace. The chalet of the Guisane, river that flows in the valley and that empties into the Durance River in Briançon, is made of stone and larch wood and is composed of 3 levels for 430 m² on a huge 6000 m² fully fenced wooded park with remote-controlled gate. Built by Henri Colboc, Grand Prix de Rome, to make it its secondary mountain residence, it is a huge warm and welcoming house where it is pleasant to live. It is equipped with infrared sauna which is ideal to relax after a day of skiing, mountain hiking or mountain biking and a pool table. Ground floor: huge entrance with hall, vestibule with 4-seat infrared sauna and pool table, boiler room, 2 separate bedrooms with 2 shower rooms to the left of the entrance, huge cupboard to store clothes and shoes for around 20 guests, outbuildings, storage spaces and garage for 2 vehicles to the right of the entrance with automatic doors. First floor: accessible by a semi-circular staircase. Above the 2 ground floor bedrooms, there is a large study with Wi-Fi Internet connection, a bedroom, a shower room and a laundry room. The rest of the 130 m² first floor is the living space: the fireplace area, composed of pink sandstone millstone that serves as firebox, double-wall sheet metal hood and circular grill, configures the layout of the television living area as well as the huge bow-window living area on one side and the dining room and its huge oak table adjacent to the kitchen and the pantry on the other side. This living space opens onto a huge 100 m² terrace. Second floor: opening onto a Mezzanine with original balustrade, 4 bedrooms including a master bedroom with Spa bath and shower cubicle, 1 with double bed and 2 large attic bedrooms for children, teens or adults according to your need and equipped with 3 or 4 single beds. These 3 bedrooms have a shower room with toilet. A television area for children by the Mezzanine completes the equipment on this floor accessible via a circular staircase decorated by a Polish artist, a friend of the architect. The balustrade of the Mezzanine with irregular design to avoid monotony is made of white lacquered sandblasted pine wood just like the ceilings which accentuate the brightness of the place. The sleeping area consists in total of 7 bedrooms with 5 double beds, 8 single beds and 5 shower rooms. Balconies and terraces offer this huge mountain house a convivial atmosphere opening onto the outside while preserving inside very nice volumes bathed in light and warmth.

It is located at the edge of the old village of La Salle-les-Alpes and 5 minutes from the slopes. Both in winter and summer, the region has everything to seduce you. Huge ski area (Serre Chevalier) with 250 km of slopes for all levels and all sorts of winter sports and 45 km of cross-country skiing, you will never have enough time to visit them all.

Stunning large property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 families with children travelling from South Africa. What a prefect property! It was large enough to comfortably accommodate all of us with plenty of different areas to relax for the different age groups. The extra long dining room table and huge open fire were an absolute hit and the beautiful views across the valley were incredible.The property was well maintained and was equipped with everything we could wish for. The customer service from both the owner and the property manager was excellent though we did lose a bit in translation as only one person in our group could speak fluent French to the manager :) We loved Le Grand Chalet and can't wait to return there.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

La description du chalet est vraiment conform à la réalité. Nous étions très, très contents.Toute la famille (8 adults, 8 enfants) s'amusait: la piscine, le billiard, la grande terrasse, la chambre mansardée pour les enfants, le rafting, le canyoning, ...

Et le soleil était avec nous pendant toute la semaine !!!

Une adresse à retenir!!!

Fantastic chalet

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic chalet in a great location. We were three families and the accommodation worked brilliantly well. Busy days enjoying the mountains followed by a glass of wine next to the pool in the early evening. We loved it

Chaleureux et convivial

  • 4 of 5

Superbe chalet lumineux avec vue magnifique. A proximité de tout et pour les skieurs une navette passe régulièrement pour les emmener à la station. Le chalet est spacieux et est vraiment le lieu idéal pour vivre des moments chaleureux et conviviaux entre amis. C'était notre deuxième année et comme on dit: " jamais deux sans trois"... Très bon contact avec le propriétaire et la personne qui accueille les locataires est également bien sympathique.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation chaleureuse ainsi que votre précision sur la navette régulière (toutes les 1/2 heures) qui dispose d'un arrêt à une centaine de mètres du chalet, infos que j'avais oublié de noter. Bien cordialement.

super chalet dans un cadre magnifique

  • 4 of 5

Très beau chalet avec une vue magnifique depuis la grande terrasse, bien isolé des voisins mais proche de tout. Beaucoup d'espace à l'intérieur, chambres confortables. Le tout très bien équipé. Nous étions peut-être un peu trop nombreux (18 !), on avait tous un bon lit mais les enfants et les ados (10 en tout) occupaient 3 chambres dont deux très petites et basses de plafond qui auraient été inconfortables pour des adultes. Mais on ne passe pas beaucoup de temps dans les chambres ! L'espace salon/salle à manger/ cuisine ouvert sur la terrasse est très agréable et les activités de pleine nature dans le coin ne manquent pas . Le plus, piscine, sauna, billard et grand écran pour l'après balade ! Sur place un monsieur qui connaît bien le chalet accueille et reste disponible au cas où.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation Une précision concernant les chambres : 2 sont mansardées, comme indiqué dans le descriptif, et équipées chacune de 3 lits de 90 cms de large, en sus d’un petit lit de 1.40 de long sur 0.70 dans l’une d’elle. Elles sont d’une surface de respectivement 15,12 et 15.81 M2, mais il est sans doute vrai que l’aspect mansardé donne le sentiment qu’elles sont plus petites. Elles sont indiscutablement plus adaptées à des ados ou des enfants, les uns comme les autres appréciant beaucoup leur coté cocooning. Pour autant, elles ont également accueillies des groupes de jeunes adultes qui ont beaucoup apprécié le chalet et à qui elles ont peut-être rappelés l’imaginaire des chambres de pension auquel ils n’avaient sans doute jamais encore eu l’opportunité de goutter… Bien cordialement.
