Chalet | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Chalet Chimere has been designed to extract the most from the stunning scenery and is spread over 3 levels. At driveway level, the chalet opens into a generous hallway with a bench giving space for guests to get their equipment organised and off this is a drying room for boots, skis and jackets. There is a laundry room and a staircase which leads to the main floor. The living area is open plan and double height with huge windows giving fantastic views. There is a dining table for 6, comfortable seating centred round a log burner, WIFI and satellite TV providing a range of UK channels. Sliding glass doors lead onto a large deck with outdoor dining furniture and a hot tub. Also on this level is a flexible (double or twin) bedroom with glass doors onto the deck, a full shower room and an additional WC. An open staircase then leads to the upper floor which has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with WC and separate shower. One bedroom is a double and the other is flexible so can be prepared as a twin or a double room. The bedrooms share a balcony with views of Brévent and Plan Praz.
The driveway has parking for 3 cars and equipment can easily be transferred from vehicles to the drying/boot room by the lower door.
Chalet Chimere's location, hot tub, views and garden make it popular all year round. It is a great option for groups who have some members who have organised activities and others who simply want to relax.
* The chalet now has a sauna, TV room and 4th bedroom with ensuite at lower ground floor level, making the capacity 8 people. There is a supplement of 15% of the quoted rate for using the 4th bedroom, which can be made up as either a double or a twin. Please contact us when booking to reserve this room.

The Rhone/French Alps region
Chalet Chimere sits on the private, tree-lined Chemin des Lupins, in a quiet area called les Favrands, to the south west of the town centre. Rue Paccard, the main shopping street in Chamonix, is a pleasant 15 minute walk (1200 metres). The nearest supermarket is Marche U in les Pelerins, 500 metres away. The nearest bars and restaurants are the Jekyll and l'Impossible (600 metres), with many other facilities in Chamonix itself.
For access to the slopes, it is recommended that guests have a car for the most flexibility, in this location. The main bus stop is 650 metres away along Route des Pelerins, with a local connecting bus close to the chalet.

Skiing and snowboarding: Chamonix is one of the world's most famous ski areas, having hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels are well-served in a variety of differing areas around Chamonix, including Brevent, Flegere, the famous Grands Montets and Domaine du Balme. The Mont Blanc pass also covers nearby areas including Les Houches, St Gervais, Megeve, Courmayeur and Les Contamines, all within an easy drive. Slightly further afield, but within an hour's drive are Verbier, La Thuile, Flaine and Les Carroz. Despite its reputation as an area for experts only, there are plenty of green, blue and red runs to satisfy beginners and intermediates alike. For the more experienced, Chamonix has miles and miles of adventurous off-piste, including the famous Vallee Blanche, an 18 km experience from the Aiguille du Midi down to the town.
Summer and the rest of the year: With the draw of Europe's premier natural attraction, Mont Blanc, Chamonix never sleeps. Whether it's simply to soak up the stunning scenery or get the adrenaline pumping, there is plenty for everybody to do all year round. There are a wide variety of marked trails for hiking and trekking; well-maintained bolted routes for rock-climbing; limitless mountaineering opportunities including Mont Blanc itself; an ever-expanding network of mountain bike trails; some of the most consistent thermals for superb paragliding; raging white water rapids for rafting and hydro speeding; canyoning and abseiling down the spectacular valley gorges; golf at the Trent Jones Sr designed 18 hole course in Chamonix, as well as many other top quality courses nearby; the sports centre has an indoor and outdoor 50 m swimming pool and a large grassed sunbathing area, water slides, numerous tennis courts, gym, spa, jacuzzi, the list goes on.

"Fantastic chalet, can't wait to return"
Fantastic chalet! Amazing views of Mont Blanc range & Boissons Glacier from the huge double height windows, garden & hot tub. Views across to Brevant & Plan Praz from front of the property.
The chalet is very well equipped with washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, plenty of cooking equipment as well as satellite TV, wifi and dvd player to keep everyone entertained. The wine fridge with welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch. It was great relaxing in the hot tub which was clean & well maintained. The log burner kept the chalet warm and cosy in the evenings.
Great location in a quiet residential area, but easy 15 min walk to the centre of Chamonix and less than 10 min to the main bus stops at Chamonix Sud where the free service takes you to Grand Montets, Argentiere & Le Tour.
We stayed at Chimere in April 2012 and loved it so much we have already booked to return in July next year. We have visited Chamonix several times previously and always booked through Mountain Base. The booking process is always very smooth and efficient, with excellent follow up / meet and greet on site. Always loads of local information provided in the chalet and reps able to answer any questions and provide recommendations.
