About this listing
Spacious airy bedroom with south facing balcony and spectacular views of the Mont Blanc range in beautiful family chalet. Large ensuite WC and walk-in shower. Tea and coffee making facilities in room, but no other kitchen facilities. Breakfast is optional and I can provide a healthy alpine breakfast, if required, as a supplement.
The chalet sits in a field - sometimes a snowy sledging slope, sometimes a flowery meadow, sometimes a hayfield - the wild deer love it. We built the chalet with big timbers, big windows; full of light and space. Calm and peaceful, it is set on the south facing hillside overlooking Chamonix town, with its innumerable shops, restaurants, bars, museums, galleries and the cinema - just 5 minutes walk down to the centre (perhaps 8 minutes back up the hill...). Right near the Brevent lift station, for fabulous alpine walking or brilliant sunny skiing.
Directly facing us on the other side of the valley the cable car soars to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi and the infamous arete leading to the Vallée Blanche, or with the telescope you can watch climbers or ski-mountaineers on Mont Blanc itself.
In the evenings the light on the mountains is extraordinary: Mont Blanc turns gently red, the Dru bursts into flames
