The Property

Located in the renowned Portes du Soleil ski area, La Grange au Merle, a traditional farm chalet, has been finished in true style to accommodate up to 15 guests. 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. Here a wood burning fireplace set the ideal atmosphere for a cosy and intimate night in, while relaxing with a good book or a glass of wine. 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. Also, a separate 'chef's table' is located behind the kitchen, ideal for children's early suppers.

At the end of an intensive day on the slopes, you will be looking forward to coming back to La Grange au Merle's outdoor hot tub, sip a glass of champagne while relaxing and admiring the surrounding mountains. Or unwind in the traditional wooden sauna and indulge in a massage, to make sure you maintain your peak physical activity. For those late nights, set the atmosphere from your Sonos music app and set the perfect background to have fun with your group, while having a cocktail from the bar area or one of the 20 high quality complimentary different wines stored in the chalet's cellar. Also, the little ones can find a dedicated space for them to enjoy their time: a TV snug is home to a large television with a selection of DVDs, games, toys and craft supplies, while the alpine playhouse 'Crystal de Neige' located in the outdoor garden guarantees the maximum level of fun in the snow.
