This chalet is on the edge of Le Tour village, at the top of the Chamonix Valley. Le Tour is a tiny typical Haute-Savoie village dominated by Le Tour glacier, which seems to hang over the village. The village is sought after by those in search of an authentic French alpine experience where the beauty and charm has not changed for centuries and is unaffected by the presence of a major ski station in its backyard.
This is a farmhouse style chalet, consisting of a large open plan central area with an alluring fireplace and big west facing windows, which capture the outstanding valley and mountain views while soaking the open areas in afternoon sunshine.
This refuge is a converted restaurant at the bottom of the piste with high ceilings, irregular angles and unconventional spaces, emphasizing comfort and warmth, rather than luxury. An eclectic mix of traditional and exotic furnishings have been creatively blended to give a relaxed feel.
The chalet is primarily on one level with the bedrooms and bathrooms leading off from the double volume living area. There are two double bedrooms (one quite small), a family room (double bed plus two singles) and a mezzanine with a double bed.
After a hard day on the slopes, and a long soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, the favoured option is usually to relax, with a drink or two, in front of the large roaring log fire, while watching snowflakes floating down and laughing about the day's events.
Relaxation and escape from the modern age is enforced by a notable absence of electronic entertainment, although there is a selection of books and board games, a CD player and ADSL WiFi access. If Sky Sports, DVD's and video games are a necessary part of your holiday mix, this is not the chalet for you.
However for those evenings when you would like a change of scenery, Argentière and Chamonix are packed with vibrant restaurants, bars and nightclubs which add to the fun of being in the extreme sports capital of Europe.
