Chamonix Chalet Rental Photos and Description
Sauna, Fireplace, Home Cinema, Big Kitchen, Large Dining Area
Chalets La Verte and Chalet Le Chardonnet are located in the village of Argentière, one of the most exclusive locations in the Chamonix Valley, with close proximity to the world famous “Grands Montets”, the largest ski domain of the Valley. Staying in Argentière, you will enjoy the genuine atmosphere of a typical Alpine village, the walking distance from the ski slopes and the easy access to the lively Chamonix after ski activities with its numerous boutiques and restaurants.
Chalets La Verte and Le Chardonnet can accommodate a large party of up to 29 persons but can also be rented separately. La Verte is the larger chalet, offering 360m2 and 7 bedrooms with Le Chardonnet to its side being a little smaller, with 280m2 and 6 bedrooms.
Both chalets are newly built and offer a unique mix of luxury, tradition and modernity. The old wood, all the way through, conveys a sense of warmness and authenticity. The antiques, the designer furniture and the original paintings contribute to the feeling of refinement. The state-of-the art kitchen and bathrooms assure a maximum comfort. Each chalet is equipped with a sauna and a home-cinema. They benefit from south facing expansive balconies and offer breath-taking panoramic views on the Mont Blanc massif, including l’Aiguille du Chardonnet, l’Aiguille des Grands Montets, l’Aiguille Verte, l’Aiguille du Midi and le Mont Blanc.
You will find a Ski de Fond piste just a 5-minute walk away, where you will be able to gear up and glide all the way to the “Grand Montets” ski domain. This little path will take you through a truly romantic trail through the alpine forest and offer the perfect start to your day of skiing.
The “Grands Montets” is the most famous ski domain in the Chamonix Valley, with lifts taking you from 1,250m up to 3,200m, and offers the most brilliant off-piste skiing. Indeed, the pistes are carved out every night, but there is a wide surface area of “hors-piste” skiable terrain, meaning that you will find your level out there, whether it is deep powder snow or steep walls, or on a more sensible blue or red piste that will safely guide you down the mountain with breath-taking surroundings.
These properties are a wonderful setting for a thrilling skiing trip, although they are possibly even as enchanting in the summer. Chamonix is one of the few alpine resorts that are as active in summer time as in winter time, drawing the outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking, mountaineering, climbing, paragliding, biking, rafting, golfing and horse riding as well as those looking for fresh air and sumptuous sceneries.
Chalet Le Chardonnet
As you enter, the chalet is equipped with a reception hall, coat hooks, ski-boot warmers and storage space for all of your equipment.
Le Chardonnet has four double bedrooms on the ground floor, all with en-suite bathrooms and a separate toilet.
Down the stairs, the cinema room awaits with a huge screen, perfect for your post après-ski/pre-fondue period of the night. Alternatively, you might want to relax in the sauna and sweat away all of the impurities in your system. On this floor, you will find also a larger children’s room with 3 bunk beds and an en-suite bathroom; and next to this, a lavatory and a laundry room.
The first floor gives onto a large living area where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view on the mountains across the valley from the expansive south facing balcony. Inside, you can cosy up to the large open fireplace, enjoy some relaxing sounds on the Sonos sound system, watch TV or read to your heart’s content on the comfy sofas. The kitchen boasts several large surface areas on which you can prepare your traditional alpine feast: raclette machines and fondue stands are provided in the property. You will be able to dine on the huge dinner table that can sit up to 18 people. Dishwasher, oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, coffee machine and electric cooker all included.
The master bedroom is situated just above, on the second floor, with a private bathroom to ensure privacy and seclusion in this majestic property.
