Chalet Bibendum is to experience the Bibendum feeling: “Your home away from home with amazing surroundings, delicious food & high services in a luxury comfortable ambiance”.

This spacious, open-plan living area and well-equipped kitchen and dining are all with stunning scenes, ideal for a family or a group of friends to stay after an exhilarating day in the mountains and enjoy a scrumptious dinner.

Our lounge terrace with sunny exposure, providing visitors the opportunity to absorb the spectacular view of Mont Blanc and the l'Aiguille du Midi.

We have a selection of dvd’s and a database of good music of all genres. There is a WIFI network, IMac, printer and good old fashioned board games to enjoy. The old hayloft ladders form a well stocked library for those who want nothing more than to curl up with a good book.

We also have all the equipement & safety features for babies and small children.

Wood fired hot tub and sauna; In the garden you will discover is a wood fired hot tub and in the cave an amazing custom made sauna ideal for those après 'mountain' moments.

More pleasures...

An excellent range of selected wines is provided in your 'Kharma' Bar and a professional espresso machine to make amazing coffees.

Among the multitude of quality amenities, you will be treated to L’Occitane bath & shower products, fairtrade hand-cut organic soaps and bath melts, wood for the fireplace and BBQ, fresh fruits & flowers and a welcome drink upon arrival.

Experience the Bibendum feeling! You will enjoy it.

Kindest greetings,

Jolanda & Olaf

Guestbook comments from the owner
From the moment we arrived to the minute we left Jolanda and Olaf ensured we had a memorable stay. The chalet is very well appointed and has amazing views. Basile the chef was great catering for the diverse needs of a group that included 5 kids. Jolanda laid on a great breakfast each morning and Olaf was always there when we needed to get somewhere. You can feel that they really take pride in what they are doing.

Experience Chalet Bibendum

  • 5 of 5
Bibendum and the mountain is an experience you never forget!
Our arrival at the chalet was very nice. The owners made us feel welcome and everything was well organised en clean.
The chalet is beautifull decorated in detail and the views from inside on the mountains makes it even better. The customer service is very good, because the owners clean on regular basis, are availble when you need them, give you information about the area, without disturbing your privacy.
After a day walking in the mountains the owners warmed the hottub for us and we could enjoy the sauna. In the afternoon we lounged on the veranda, where the sun shines.
The housewine they serve tasted well and we even had the luxery of the Chef, who cooked a great dinner for us.
Chamonix gives you al you want like nice restaurants and shops, etc.
Overall it was the best week ever and we certainly come back to chalet Bibendum
Thanks for the fantastic week Jolanda and Olaf!!
