Piste-side Chalet. Hot Tub. Convenient Location.

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Les Houches, Chamonix Valley. 2 minute walk to amenities and ski lifts.

This chalet is a rare find in a privileged position.

One of only a handful of properties in the Chamonix Valley where you can ski back to the door but still have the convenience of the cable car, chair lift , restaurants, shops and bars only a 200m level walk away. You are not stuck up a mountain with no nearby facilities with this chalet.

Being located in Les Houches on the famous Kandahar run of the World Cup Ski Circuit makes this property ideal for ski holidays.

In summer, climbers of Mont Blanc and walkers of the Tour de Montblanc will find this is the perfect base camp with the access point for both only 200m away.

Or simply relax and enjoy the fabulous panorama of the Mont-Blanc chain from the large terrace or hot tub.

This chalet is great value. It is comfortable and cosy, traditionally decorated but without compromising on facilities and space.

There is a large lounge and dining area with open log fire and panoramic views of the Mont Blanc Chain. The kitchen is well equipped with a large oven, double sink, large fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

The chalet is surrounded on 3 sides by a large private balcony area where the hot tub is found, giving fabulous mountain views as you relax and unwind after a busy day skiing, hiking or sightseeing.

There are 3 good sized bedrooms each with its own bath/shower room and access to a balcony. Two of the 4 bedrooms have an ensuite shower room (with toilet and basin). The fourth bedroom has a private bathroom across the corridor with full sized bath and overhead shower (toilet and basin). Two of the bedrooms can be arranged as a kingsize or twin bed.

Parking for the property is in the free public car park next to the chalet building.

About the Owner

In 2003, we left the UK behind to 'live the dream' in France. We used the chalet for our catered chalet business for several years, investing time and profits in improving it throughout . In 2008 we changed focus, and so now rent it out on a self catering basis.

Very well situated both for ease of access from Geneva and proximity to local facilities (short stroll to ski hire/lift, boulangerie, restaurants etc)

Location

From the Owner

Location, location, location was the reason we bought this property. Right on the piste but still only 200 metres from shops, bars restaurants. So you have the convenience of skiing back to the door without the inconvenience of being 'stuck' up the mountain. The views of the Aiguille du Midi and surrounding mountains are stunning. Les Houches is a lovely, quiet village but with vibrant Chamonix nearby, you get the best of both worlds. The year round trade was the icing on the cake!

The chalet is found in the village of Les Houches, which is one of the ski areas that make up the resorts of the Chamonix Valley.

For winter breaks, the property is ideally positioned at the bottom of the famous Kandahar run of the World Cup Ski Circuit. It is accessible for skiers of all abilities as both a beginner and intermediate piste lead to the apartment before the final 500m section to the door. Or take the turn to the lift and apres-ski bars.

In the summer, climbers of Mont Blanc and walkers of the Tour de Montblanc will find this is the perfect base camp, as the starting and finishing point for both is only 200m away. Or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views of the Aiguille du Midi from the large deck area and swimming pool after a day of walking or sightseeing in Chamonix and the surrounding areas.

With this property residents do not have to compromise on convenience as the cable car, chair lift , restaurants, shops and bars are only a 200m level walk away. With more facilites to be found in the village centre, only a 10 minute level walk away.

The popular town of Chamonix is about 6km away and is well connected by the local bus service which has regular departures from outside the cable car. Here you will find the Aiguille du Midi, the highest cable car in Europe that allows skiers/boarders to access the challenging 'Valley Blanche' - the longest off piste run in France. You can also visit the Mer de Glace via the Montenvers tramway, or take the Brevent and Flegere cable cars to access these areas and all they have to offer.

Les Houches is perfectly located to access so much more than just the french alps. A few highlights include the picturesque town of Annecy, with its canals, cobbled streets and lake, less than an hours drive away. Or how about a day in the city of Geneva, again only an hour away. A quick drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel and you arrive in the Aosta Valley where you can eat pizza in the Italian Alps. Or take a trip to Gruyere, in Switzerland to visit the cheese factory and the nearby Nestle chocolate factory.
