The beautiful chalet is nestled in the mountainside, high above the valley floor, with stunning views of Mont Blanc. The chalet has seven bedrooms, all designed and equipped to a very high standard. All of them have French doors leading out on to a South facing balcony overlooking the Chamonix valley and directly opposite the magnificent Mont Blanc mountain range.

The bedrooms can be shared twins or doubles with a super king-size bed and all have an en-suite bathroom, television, DVD player, and an iPod docking station. Several have sun loungers just outside on the balcony. The chalet has its own spa with a sauna, steam room, walk-in shower, and treatment room for the on-site massages.

The terrace is the ideal place for yoga, complete with Jacuzzi, outdoor pool and breath-taking panoramic views of the French Alps. Bluerise Retreats also have a secluded indoor space for yoga and meditation, in case of rain. The living area has large floor to ceiling windows to capture the valley scenery.

A stone open fireplace plays a centerpiece to the sunken lounge and dining area, making it an inviting and sociable area to relax. There is also a cinema room and games room at the chalet to enjoy in your free time. During your retreat, there will be an excellent full-time chef, chalet host, and driver providing catering, cleaning, driving, and 24-hour assistance.

Program

The hikes

Experience guided walks through the stunning French Alps. These gentle half-day hikes last two to three hours with plenty of rest time to take in the incredible views. No prior fitness level is required. The qualified and experienced walking guide and nature expert, Susanna Walker, carefully choose trails to suit the abilities of the clients.

She makes sure no-one is left behind while imparting knowledge on the local wildlife and beautiful fauna. On the full-day hike, you will leave the chalet at 10 a.m. and set off to explore some of Chamonix’s best hiking trails. Around midday, you will make yourselves comfortable in an idyllic setting for a healthy packed lunch with impressive views.

When rested, you will continue your inspirational journey through the spectacular Mont Blanc mountain range before returning to the chalet to enjoy a fresh healthy smoothie and to relax in the hot tub, sauna, and steam room. All hikes are optional.

The spa

The majesty of Mont Blanc is the setting for this new Chamonix QC Terme spa where nature is the protagonist, offering a not-to-missed swim midst the snow or green mountain meadows. It’s an unexpected combination of warmth and freshness, water, and earth. Within the spa’s 3,000 square meters, there are over 30 wellness practices, following a multi-sensory journey. There is also an infinity pool whose reflection merges with the water of the adjacent Alpine lake, all with a breathtaking view of the Bossons Glacier.
