The chalet's design welcomes guests into a retreat full of warmth, comfort and style set in traditional Savoyard character, representing the perfect choice for a luxury family ski holiday in France.
The first floor is the heart of the chalet, with a south facing and open-plan living space, characterised by a classic wooden furniture which gives the ultimate alpine feeling to the property. Natural light sparkles from every angle thanks to the large floor to ceiling windows, allowing you to take in the amazing view of the surrounding village from the comfort of the spacious seating area.

On the mezzanine a library offers a peaceful space to select a book or magazine and access the internet to catch up with work emails. Step outside the large wrap-around balcony to appreciate the breathtaking landscape and have an alfresco apéritif with your friends and family.
On the opposite side, a classy crafted larch dining table, which comfortably seats up to 12 guests, awaits you to enjoy evening meals while catching up with one another after a full day of skiing in Chatel. Alternatively, you can enjoy some quality time with the family preparing a homemade meal, in the nearby fully-equipped modern kitchen, featured with rustic wooden panelled drawers and black granite work surface surrounding a substantial traditional style range.
