Chalet Amélie Is A Magnificent Chalet Located In Prestigeous Les Bois

Chalet Amélie is a magnificent chalet of recent build, located in Les Bois - one of Chamonix's most prestigious areas. Split over 4 levels, with exposed woodwork and mountain views throughout, the chalet has been carefully designed to combine traditional character with modern features, to offer an incredible mountain experience. The chalet sleeps up to 17 people in 8 bedrooms.

The entrance hallway is accessed either from a large covered porch area which is next to the garage and drive area, or by the front door from the garden. Steps lead down to a ski and outdoor equipment storage area, a separate WC and the sauna. A shower adjoins the sauna and there are two external doors - one leading to the hot tub, and one to the side deck. From the entrance hallway the following rooms can be accessed: office with patio door onto the side deck; cosy TV room with large flat screen TV, DVD player and games; separate WC. A second set of steps lead down to two flexible (double or twin) bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and the other a family bathroom with stand-alone shower, which can also be accessed via a second door from the hallway. On this lower ground floor level there is also a utility room and exercise room.

Stairs from the entrance hall lead up to a comfortable open plan living area, which features large sofas around a focal fireplace, dining area for 14, kitchen and stone flagged floor throughout. Large windows offer spectacular mountain views, and two sets of double glazed doors lead onto a wrap-around deck with exterior dining area, sun-loungers and BBQ. A set of stairs lead up to the first floor landing, which leads to a master double bedroom with shower room, flat screen TV and balcony; double bedroom, separate shower room; flexible bedroom (double or twin) with en-suite shower room; bedroom with up to 3 single beds, ideal for children. A second floor landing gives access to 2 bedrooms, both of which are flexible (double or twin) and have an en-suite shower room.

With it's beautiful interior, charming atmosphere, peaceful location, incredible views, spacious deck and hot tub Chalet Amélie offers everything needed for an unforgettable alpine holiday.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18 km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.

Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canyoning and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; the sports centre has an indoor and outdoor 50 m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi, the list goes on.

Well Appointed- Comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm well appointed chalet with big beds and quiet rooms in a secluded part of Chamonix and we still benefited from watching the sun set over Mont Blanc as we ate at the barbecue.

Transport links were excellent as was the road in and we found it easily. We went out one night and got to the town centre in 3 minutes by car.

It has all the necessaries and more. We made full use of the hot tub and sauna after getting soaked in the mountains. The chalet was warm and inviting.

It really feels like a mountain home form home with a careful blend of beautifully crafted wooden interiors and amazingly warm stone floors. It even has a secluded office for getting on with the intrusions of modern life and a playroom to park

Traditional look/contempory luxury - HUGE CHALET

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is awesome - SO much space! We had the kids and they wanted to hang in hot tub then in the office and the TV room on the bean bags whilst we were drinking wine in front of the fire! Cooked on the barbeque on the sun-deck with the most outrageous view of the Dru and Mont Blanc. Super-comfy beds and nice en-suites. As usual with chalets, far too hot unless you turn the radiators off and open the windows!

Magnifique et parfait

  • 5 of 5

Superbe chalet avec 8 grandes chambres et un séjour spacieux. La déco est vraiment soignée, l'équipement de la cuisine complet. Belle cheminée, réserve de bois, chambres aux lits douillets et couettes épaisses. Belles salles-de bain en suite. Grand sauna intérieur et jacuzzi extérieur qui permet de savourer une coupe de champagne en admirant le ciel étoilé ou le Mont Blanc. Bref un sans faute, jusqu'à l'accueil de l'équipe pro de Mountain Base. Une très belle adresse pour notre réunion commerciale.

Génial

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes partis avec toute ma famille c'est-à-dire 4 couples et ma maman de 85 ans, 4 couples avec des bébés et des enfants. Chaque petite famille a pu avoir son coin et son indépendance avec sa chambre et sa salle de bain et ça, ça change la vie! le chalet est très bien équipé, nous avons eu un temps magnifique et passé une semaine de rêve en profitant au maximum du sauna et jacuzzi dans cette station de rêve qu'est Chamonix!!!
