Chalet | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Le Villaret is a tiny village nestled on the mountainside, close to many small and major ski resorts in the Taranteise Valley (La Rosiere, St Foy, Val D'Isere, Tignes and Les Arcs all close by).
It's a beautiful, sunny location at 1,370m and a perfect place to end a days skiing if you're looking for quality time outside the resort centres, with amazing views over the mountains.
In the Summer it is a fantastic base to explore the mountain villages, or as a cycling retreat close to many major cycling routes (Col De L'iseran, Col de la madeleine, Col du Petit St Bernard)
This newly built chalet (2012) has 4 bedrooms plus an additional bedroom 5 on the mezzanine floor. All bedrooms have en-suites, all are with showers/toilets and 2 are with baths. It comfortably sleeps 10-11 people but is also fine for smaller groups.
There is a huge open plan living room with 'A-frame' window overlooking the valley and a large dining table comfortably seating 10 guests. All specifications and furnishings are to a very high standard.
There is a TV area and a purpose built, stone seating area around a large, open plan fireplace.
Above the living room is a mezzanine floor with sofa bed to use as bedroom or as additional relaxation area, with TV, PS3 and office facilities.
From the living room you will find a 30ft balcony with views over the mountains. The chalet is South facing so keeps the sun all day.
At lower ground floor level there is an impressive entrance hall with huge ski / cycling changing room, a games room with baby-foot, darts, TV and table tennis. Next door to here is a spa room with 5-man sauna, Italian shower and mood lighting. A great way to end the day!
This floor also has a large utility room with washing machine, dryer and ironing board etc.
Outside there is a large terrace and garden with firepit (BBQ), outside shower next to the jacuzzi (the jacuzzi fits 10 and is conveniently located underneath the balcony with a rope & pulley to send down refreshments!)
There are two garages and plenty of off-street parking in front of the chalet.
This mountain retreat is 15 minutes from Bourg St Maurice and close to all resorts (closest is La Rosiere in 7 mins, furthest is Val D'Isere in 25 minutes). There are some great, mountain side restaurants and bars a very short drive away.
The chalet is self-catering although can be offered on a fully catered basis and we can also provide a bed and breakfast service.
It can also be booked with 'Le Petit Chalet' (to the right on the photo) which is a smaller (sleeps 4), luxury chalet built and furnished to the same specification,
