The Property

A traditional farm chalet in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, La Grange au Merle has been finished in true style. The chalet's design welcomes guests into a retreat full of warmth, comfort and style set in traditional Savoyard character.

The first floor is the heart of the chalet, with a south facing and open plan living space. Take in the amazing alpine views while you enjoy the cocktail bar, feature log burning fire or settle in the dining area to eat and drink with friends and family. Open the Sonos music app on your smart phone and set the background ambience in any of the rooms. Our bespoke crafted larch dining table comfortably seats a party of twelve while also remaining intimate with two adults either side. There is a lovely 'chef's table' beside the kitchen which is great if children need to be fed separately. The kitchen itself overlooks the living area with rustic wooden panelled drawers and black granite work surface surrounding a substantial traditional style range. Modern amenities are not forgotten - microwave, double door fridge freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, dish washer and wine cooler are all present.

Each of the five tastefully decorated bedrooms and family suites have access to an en-suite bathroom. The chalet's original charm and ambience is retained throughout, maintaining La Grange au Merle's authentic atmosphere. However the renovations have added all the home comforts you could wish for. From a steamy hot tub and sauna to roaring fires in the grate, La Grange au Merle will ease your mind and relax your body.

A dedicated TV snug is home to a large television with a selection of DVDs, games, toys and craft supplies. On the mezzanine a library offers a peaceful space to select a book or magazine and access the internet. For relaxation after a hard day on the slopes soak in the outdoor hot-tub, unwind in the sauna or indulge in a massage. For those wishing outdoor fun, gardens surround the chalet with our alpine playhouse, 'Crystal de Neige', being irresistible to those with a sense of play and imagination. Along with spacious accommodation over four floors and garden, there is also a convenient covered garage for two cars located beside the property.

The prices are based on exclusive use of the chalet for up to 10 guests and includes full chalet catering, selected complimentary drinks and in resort driver service.

Additional guests may be accommodated for on request, please enquire.
