Amenities & services

The chalet, which faces south, was built in 1950 and has been completely renovated. Built of granite on the ground floor and larch wood on the top, with a traditional cedar-tiled roof, it's a wonderfully welcoming house.

The garden is huge (about two-thirds of an acre) and melts into the forest surrounding the chalet. Just through the woods, you can glimpse the cross-country ski trails which run beside the river.The views are spectacular in all directions -you can see Flegere, Brevent, Mont Blanc, the Aiguille du Midi, the Dru and many more. There is plenty of off-street private parking with room for up to four cars. The shed provides ideal storage for skis, boards and boots.

Living room
The spacious and beautiful living room has a TV with DVD player, stereo with iPod dock, squashy and very comfortable sofas and a PS2 in the mezzanine den. There are games, an extensive DVD collection and a selection of books including plenty about the mountains. Bring a laptop to access our wireless broadband - useful for checking weather forecasts and lifts. The huge covered balcony is a lovely place to listen to the river and watch the snow.

Kitchen and dining
The traditional tiled kitchen is very well equipped with new modern appliances - there's a four ring halogen hob and fan oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer-dryer. There's plenty of crockery and cutlery, cast iron pans and good kitchen knives. There's a raclette and fondue set for cheesy nights in.
The big farmhouse table seats ten easily and there is an open fire.
