About Harriet Blackmore

Chalet Kilima is a family owned chalet. Although we live in the UK the chalet has been our bolt hole for more than 30 years. We have enjoyed many a family holiday here and hope you will too.

Harriet Blackmore purchased this Chalet in 1980

Why Harriet Blackmore chose Les Carroz d'Arâches

We brought our chalet because we love Les Carroz. Over the 30 years that we have owned Chalet Kilima we have seen many changes but Les Carroz has still retained it charm and intimate feel. From our balcony we think we have the best view in the whole town.

What makes this Chalet unique

Amazing views, masses of space, a warm cozy well equipped home away from home.

                                                            • We run the rental of the chalet on the Easyjet principle - low cost but a bit more work! We expect our guests to leave the chalet clean and tidy and to bring their own linen and towels. This enables us to keep our prices low. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / are not included. It may sound like more hard work renting our chalet but the savings you make are considerable and most of our guests come back time and time again so we must be doing something right. Do get in touch to find out more. Other: Large drying cupboard and attic space. There is an attic space that has restricted head room for adults but makes a great child play area/dormitory!

                                                              Chalet Kilima is a brilliant chalet, it has fantastic views across Les Carroz. It is well equipped and easily big enough for 10 adults. It is about a 20 minute walk to the village and we spent a few evenings in the local restaurants and bars.

                                                              A lovely, spacious and well appointed chalet.

                                                              Chalet Kilima is situated just outside the centre of Les Carroz (about a 10 minute walk/quick drive). It is a lovely chalet comprising a large open plan living/dining/cooking area. There are five bedrooms, all twin or double and two bathrooms. It is extremely well equipped and has a TV, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a boot room. There is plenty of cooking equipment, crockery, cutlery and glasses, and lots of games to play also. The views are spectacular.

                                                              We were two families with a mix of boys and girls and ages and Chalet Kilima totally suited our needs.

                                                              Fabulous chalet in spectacular surroundings. Chalet is of very high standard and comfortable with all necessary mod-cons. Situated overlooking the pretty village of Les Carroz with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, but still a short drive/walk to the ski lifts. I have been to the chalet with various abilities of skiers and all have had a fantastic week of sking. Highly recommended.

                                                              Owner's Response:
