Our beautiful chalet is nestled in the mountainside, high above the valley floor, with stunning views of Mont Blanc.

The chalet has 7 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, TV, DVD player and 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. We 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 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.

Things to do (optional)

Chamonix is an extreme sports paradise (for skiing, snowboarding, mountaineering, trail running, walking, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding, wing suit flying, and more) but many people go there just to admire the spectacular views of the mountains and glaciers, wander around the shop-lined streets and enjoy the warmth of a nice coffee shop or restaurant.

You will have enough free time on the retreats to explore Chamonix and experience all the cool stuff it has to offer. The main attraction being Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe at 4,810 meters. The views of the Mont Blanc Massif are spectacular from the valley floor, but it is recommended viewing it from the highest cable car in Europe, the Aiguille du Midi (3,842 meters). There, you will find "Step into the Void", one of Chamonix’s most recently added attractions; a glass-sided box with a view of Mont Blanc to your left and a 1,000-meter drop beneath your feet.

Another popular place to visit is the impressive Mer de Glace glacier (sea of ice) which is accessed by the Montenvers funicular train. From the top, you can descend to the ice caves via cable car and a series of walkways and steps.

You will have a full body massage included in the package and a full day at a wonderful spa just over the border in Italy. You will also have the access to use the hot tub, pool, steam room, and sauna at the chalet.
