Restored Savoyarde farmhouse

The chalet is perched on a large plot at the Western end of the Chamonix valley, above the village of Les Houches. The property sits on the edge of a nature reserve, at the foot of some of the best hiking trails in the region, yet only a few minutes drive from the local ski lifts. A short walk away, via a path at the end of the garden, Les Granges d’en Haut is a boutique five-star hotel offering a luxury spa, pool, health centre, restaurant and bar.

This elegantly restored Savoyarde farmhouse offers breathtaking views of the Mont Blanc massif and a degree of privacy seldom experienced in Alpine resorts. The chalet is considered one of the most beautiful properties in the region. Originally a working farm before becoming an auberge in the 1940's. During World War II, the chalet served as a hostel for a large number of child refugees, evacuated from the large towns. It continued to be a much-loved local hotel and restaurant until the Bochatay family retired in the late 1990s. The current owner spent much of his own childhood holidaying with his family here. The Main Chalet comprises four bedrooms plus a hayloft dormitory sleeping nine (four double beds and one single bed). All bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and Bedroom 3 is in fact a separate apartment with a seperate entrance, bathroom and kitchenette. There are plenty of choices when it comes to finding space and privacy in the Main Chalet. Aside from your private quarters, you can choose between the Winter Garden, large living room or small living room / cinema. Breakfast and informal dining may take place in the large open- plan kitchen, while the wood-panelled dining room can be used for more formal occasions. The ground floor of the Main Chalet is wired for sound with a zoneable Bose system. Wireless internet, satellite televisions and an extensive library of 100+ DVDs are available for guest use. The chalet is spread over 4,000 square metres of gardens and terraces, with privacy provided by a long drive and mature hedges and trees around the boundary of the property. Facing Southeast at an altitude of 1,100 meters, the site benefits from uninterrupted views of the Mont Blanc massif and direct sunlight throughout the day. A few paces in the Main Chalet, one of the three original mazots has been converted into a sauna, with an outdoor shower for summer use. Just next to the sauna, guests can settle into a hot tub and look out over Les Aiguilles de Chamonix.
