The chalet l'Arbre du Chaumieu is situated at one of the most beautiful places in one of the most beautiful valleys of the French Alps. You have a breathtaking view over the valley and mountains. This out of a ruin new built chalet, is situated in a nature reserve above Verchaix, a pretty village near Samoens and Morillon in the Vallée du Giffre. The sun has great influence; while in the valley mist still hangs, you can already enjoy the warmth of the sun. The chalet is built from authentic materials in the typical style of the French Alps. Upon entering, the chalet, the design and furniture, falls as a warm blanket around you, that feeling what you are looking for if you want to spend a holiday in the mountains. And then there's the tree. This tree with branches and leaves still on it, is the centre of the chalet. Everywhere, the tree is in sight. This along with the wood, hundreds of years old, the rocks and boulders, detailed lighting, modern kitchen and carefully chosen details, make this chalet a unique accommodation for your winter holidays but also for a relaxing or active holiday in the summer. Downstairs there is a guesthouse. The guest house has its own kitchen, dining room, lounge, TV, etc. This is additional to rent but not to let separately; you never have other guests in the chalet. This could be useful with young children or grandparents who wants a little more peace and privacy. Everything is connected internally, so no need to walk outside.

Outside we have four terraces in the predominantly flat garden. A terrace on the east side with a barbecue hut. Summer and winter a must to use. When you return from skiing or an adventurous hike, then this is the place to be to socialize around the fire while enjoying a snack and a drink. Together ( easily 12 people) you can naturally also barbecue and cheese fondue here, though the butcher thinks you're weird when you order barbecue meat if it's -5 Celsius outside. The terrace has space enough for outside dining under pleasant weather conditions. Against the edge of the garden, on the south, you could find the terrace with Jacuzzi. Bubbling, you can enjoy the beautiful view over the valley. Where to find such a luxury.

The Rhone/French Alps region

The chalet l'Arbre du Chaumieu is situated at one of the most beautiful places in one of the most beautiful valleys of the French Alps. You have a breathtaking view over the valley and mountains. This out of a ruin new built chalet, is situated in a nature reserve above Verchaix, a pretty village near Samoens and Morillon in the Vallée du Giffre. The sun has great influence; while in the valley mist still hangs, you can already enjoy the warmth of the sun. The chalet is built from authentic materials in the typical style of the French Alps.

And then there's the tree. This tree with branches and leaves still on it, is the centre of the chalet. Everywhere, the tree is in sight. This along with the wood, hundreds of years old, the rocks and boulders, detailed lighting, modern kitchen and carefully chosen details, make this chalet a unique accommodation for your winter holidays but also for a relaxing or active holiday in the summer.

Grand Massif

Verchaix is located in the Vallée du Giffre at about 80 km from Geneva Airport and 870 km from Calais. In summer and winter the valley offers a wide range of possibilities. A few minutes down is the ski station of Morillon, where you could take the ski cabin to the Grand Massif skiing area. The area with 265 km of slopes is versatile and suitable for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. In summer many sports and mountaineering courses are represented. Down in the valley there is a miniature golf course, an adventure park, and a swimming lake called Lac Bleu, but of course it is also possible to search an idyllic spot along the river . The little further on Samoens is a swimming pool. Spring and fall are also very special. The gush of nature, the surging rivers, the contrast between young green and snowy peaks as well as the rapidly changing skies and vistas makes spring special, but autumn with its beautiful colors and its own scent is also to recommend.
