About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, fireplace, cinema & games room with pool table, lounge

A lovely 4 bedroom chalet situated in an elevated position above Les Houches with great dominating views of the whole valley. A short drive to the centre of Les Houches (or a healthy 15 walk) and an 8 minute drive to the slopes and ski schools.

A brand new, beautifully finished elegant chalet with a large en suite master and two spacious bedrooms sharing the top floor with a wonderful fully glassed chill out area to appreciate the view from.

The ground floor has the kids bedroom, guest loo and a well designed and spacious open plan living area. It is equipped with a fantastic kitchen, lovely dining area and very comfortable lounge area with open fireplace and spectacular views dominating the valley.

The whole living area is very open plan and light, with huge windows and sliding doors which works well because ithe chalet is set above all the sorrunding chalets.

Downstairs there is a further entrance with practical heated boot racks and ski room and an enormous extra games room with pool table and home cinema.

The chalet as a whole is really comfortable with thick plush carpet in many areas, and well balanced for several families or a large group of friends.

Self Catered Option includes:

Concierge service before and during your stay to help organise any services you might require such as ski pass purchase, transport etc

A welcome at the chalet to explain how everything works as well as the chalet rules; a summary of what is going on in Chamonix and the best places to visit, rent skis, go out etc; a run through and confirmation of any services you may have pre booked with us such as guides, monitors, baby sitters etc

One housekeeping visit during the week to help make this even more of a holiday.

All linen, towels and luxury bathroom products.

Ten80 Holidays welcome pack.

Additional services available:

Upgrade to daily housekeeping

In resort and airport transfers

Additional personel - Chef, baby-sitter, guide, instructor, pressing

much much more

We also love providing a fully catered experience but prefer to work with each one of our guests individually creating the perfect bespoke holiday depending on the services you really want rather than what we imagine you would like.

About Peter Vainer

This property is managed by Peter who lives happily in Chamonix with Laure and his three children, genuinely loves his current job and sees looking after owners and guests as a culmination of everything he has learnt so far in his varied and illustrious career. The TEN 80 HOLIDAYS offers an extremely high standard of accommodation and service, but what sets us apart is individuality. We will never have a lot of properties on our books, because we never want to have 'just another chalet'. We only offer properties with a distinct character, and in each case that quality is due in large part to the character of the property owners, with whom we have strong relationships:

Home sweet home

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time in more than 20 years we tried a chalet without next-door ski-slopes. So we had some doubts... Indeed we needed a short trip with the car before starting skiing, however, we were not restricted to one resort and tried several locations in Chamonix. We never cared about this short trip since we always returned to a marvelous chalet. The play-room was fantastic for the children and the whole interior made us feel at home. Everything you can imagine about a luxurious return after a day skiing was available. The welcome and service provided by Peter and his team was excellent. For breakfast, the local bakery was perfect, however, if you like some special pastry after skiing, we recommend "Zanin" in Saint Gervais and "Aux Petits Gourmands" in Chamonix. After this experience, we already booked for the ski-holidays next year in 2017. How can we be more convincing?

Spacieux et confortable!

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 2 couples avec enfants et avons passé une magnifique semaine, les enfants étaient ravi avec l'espace billard+TV et les adultes enchantés par la superbe vue sur la vallée depuis le séjour. Les chambres sont très confortables avec de nombreux rangements. Les salles de bains modernes et agréable avec un bémol par le manque de rideaux pour intimité. Les chambres sont bien insonorisées!

Un supermarché est en bas de la rue (dénivelé assez fort, 2min en voiture, 10min a pied). C'est la deuxieme fois que nous y séjournons et avons passé les fetes de fin d'années 2014 avec ski. Le prarion se situe a 5 minutes en voiture. Une prairie se situe a coté du chalet et en hiver les enfants s'amusent énormément en luge... Le centre de chamonix est a 10 minutes. Ce chalet se trouve au coeur de toutes les activitites possible a faire en montagne. On y retournera avec le plus grand des plaisirs des petits et des grands!!
