This Chalet is an Alpine chalet in the true sense of the word. It is a quality, detached property built in the Savoyarde style. Unlike many so called ski chalets, it is not a collection of apartments or rooms situated above shops, bars or restaurants. The beautiful view over the lake to the tree covered slopes beyond can be enjoyed from the balconies of the bedrooms to the front of the chalet. The chalet has accommodation for 37 guests and is only a three-minute easy walk from the slopes.
On arrival, bags and skis can be unloaded directly outside the front door, where staff will, whenever possible, help to carry them to your rooms. Leading from the large entrance hall is the sitting / dining area, ski storage and boot room and the main staircase.
To the left of the entrance hall and adjacent to the kitchen is the spacious dining room with traditional tables and chairs in a Savoyarde style.
Leading from the dining room is the sitting room, designed around a log burning fire with sofas and small tables arranged in cosy groups. This is where afternoon tea is served and where tall stories are exchanged at night!
Heated Boot Room
Further down the hall is the ski and boot room, with a separate exit so that ski boots need never be worn in the main part of the chalet. We are very proud of our stainless steel boot warming racks – guaranteed warm, dry boots every morning!
Accessed from the first floor landing is our 130 square metre sun terrace, where those not skiing can top up their tan on sunny days.
Newly installed on the sun terrace for the 2008 / 2009 season is our inviting Nordic hot tub. This facility is free to use, but please bring costumes.
The chalet can comfortably take up to 39 guests. There are 15 bedrooms, all with bathrooms and toilets en-suite, with a mixture of doubles, twins, king-size and family rooms/suites. No two bedrooms are the same and most offer more space and storage than is usually found in ski chalets. The quality of their soft furnishings adds to the mountain feel of the chalet.
When all the family rooms are taken, some of the twins can take a put-you-up bed, although this may make them a little cosy!
Each bedroom has a flat screen TV. Most of the rooms are within range of our free Wi-Fi network for those who bring their own laptops or handhelds. There is also a desk in the hallway with a computer connected to the Internet for free use by our guests. Mobile reception throughout the chalet is good.
Unlike many chalets, all bedrooms are lockable. All beds have individual reading lights and there are spare mains sockets in each room for charging mobiles, computers, toothbrushes, etc.
Towels are changed midweek.
Heating in each bedroom can be individually adjusted by thermostat.
Two of the fully tiled bathrooms have baths and the remaining thirteen have showers. All benefit from an abundant supply of hot water.
