Overview

About the property

Bespoke 5 Bedroom chalet and Sauna with uninterrupted views !

Nestled into the slopes above Les Gets is the beautiful Chalet Argèntiere. Beautifully furnished, it offers five individually designed bedrooms, four bathrooms, a fabulous 8-person sauna and a stunning wraparound balcony with sweeping views across the valley. This chalet is offered as a fully-catered, whole-chalet rental and can sleep 10 in great comfort during the Ski Season.

Out of the Ski Season, rates are offered on a self-catering basis only, sleeping a maximum of 10 in 5 bedrooms. However, we do try to be flexible and a self-catering option maybe available during the ski season too.....please ask !

During the Ski Season, there are two resident chalet hosts, who are on hand to help with any queries and ensure that your holiday runs smoothly and enjoyably.

Visit our website: bespokeski.co.uk for full details and availability

We call ourselves "Bespoke Ski" as we endeavour to offer our guests a ski-ing holiday that is set far above the market norm and is tailor-made to suit your individual requirements. This includes us collecting ski passes for our guests, so that they are waiting for you on arrival at the chalet. We also have an agreement with a local ski hire company where, not only will you get the very best local hire rates, but they will also come to the chalet to fit and deliver your ski equipment to the chalet, so no hideous waiting around in a hire-shop !

Whilst we don't offer airport transfers ourselves, we have an agreement with a local company so we are able to organise transfers for you (payable locally). Finally, we love visiting children to have a wonderful holiday too and we have a pizza-making evening just for them and a cupcake decorating evening too........leaving parents and family members free to indulge in an aperitif before dinner !

A Summary of what we have to offer:

Guests will start the day with a hearty à la carte breakfast, which includes cereals, a range of fruit juices, fresh fruit, French pastries and a hot, traditional "English" breakfast. Guests are then driven to the slopes for a full day's ski-ing, with an evening pick-up at an agreed time. For non-ski-ing guests, we are happy for the non-skiers to use the chalet facilities during the day.

Tea and homemade cakes are provided on return to the chalet in the afternoon and a gourmet 4-course dinner is served each night. Children can be catered for separately if required. All house wines, beers and soft drinks are included in the rental price and spirits are available if required (payable locally).

Summary of the chalet:

The living area is located on the first floor and includes a farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room seating 10, with French doors leading onto the balcony. Also on the first floor is an elegant and spacious sitting room with a log burner, comfortable chairs and sofas and three further sets of French windows, making the most of the spectacular view. There is a separate study with WiFi and a selection of books and games. There is UK Freeview television available in the sitting room, together with a wide selection of DVDs.

The stylish master bedroom is located on the 2nd floor and has the benefit of a private balcony and a fully equipped en-suite bathroom, including a bath, double sink unit, separate large shower and WC.

There are two further twin bedrooms (one can be converted into a king-size bedroom if required) on the 2nd floor and a family bathroom. There is also a children's play are on this floor.

On the ground floor there is a spacious double bedroom and a twin bedroom, which share an en-suite shower room. There is also an 8-person sauna on the ground floor with separate shower.

The boot room has heated boot and glove warmers and ski-racks.

All bedrooms have Tassimo coffee/tea machines, bespoke bathrobes and slippers. All bathrooms have a selection of luxury Molton Brown toiletries so guests can have a relaxing and indulgent bath after a hard day's ski-ing !

Our Alpine Chalet is perfectly positioned for complete peace and quiet with uninterrupted views, yet has the delightful town of Les Gets with its outdoor ice rink, shops, bank / cash machines, ski lifts and lovely restaurants just 5 minutes away.

A 25% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking, with the balance due 8 weeks before departure

About Mrs J. Derbyshire

We bought this chalet in 2001 and have spent many happy years holidaying here. Having hosted many wonderful holidays for both family and friends, we realise what a truly special chalet we have in Chalet l'Argentiere. It's luxurious with out being ostentatious, ideally suited to two or more families holidaying together. When I decided to take early retirement, it seemed the obvious thing to start hosting holidays for guests and it's so wonderful to meet new and varied people, many of whom have become firm friends. We hope to welcome you to our chalet this season !

Why Mrs J. Derbyshire chose Portes du Soleil area

Les Gets is where our children first learnt to ski and is the perfect location for children and beginners to learn, with its gentle green and blue slopes. For more advanced skiers, there is a huge selection of red and black runs, all interconnecting into the massive Portes du Soleil region. Indeed, we are so lucky to have such an extensive and varied ski region right on our doorstep.

The beauty of Chalet l'Argentiere is its unique location. Just a 2 minute drive into the village, so hugely convenient for the ski lifts, shopping etc, but just outside the main hub and noise of the village. The chalet has panoramic views across the surrounding mountains and valleys and the peace and quiet is breathtaking. Breakfast is frequently interrupted by guests rushing to take pictures of the local caribou deer population coming up the the garden to graze.....such a beautiful sight !

Because we are a two minute drive to the village, we also don't suffer from the noise of piste-bashers through the night, or from rowdy revellers !!

What makes this chalet unique

We offer a luxurious but non-pretentious holiday for ALL the family. We tailor-make the holiday to suit our guests and we are always happy to help organise extra activities (para-gliding, husky sledging etc), together with the normal ski passes etc.

We love having children to stay with us and it's important that they have as good a time as the adults. That's why we have a children's pizza-making evening, and host a movie-night for them with popcorn and drinks.
