The chalet provides 140sqm of living space in grounds of 1250sqm in the quiet residential area of Taconnaz.

The World Cup Downhill resort of Les Houches and its tree lined skiing is a mile or so down the valley and Chamonix town is 5 minutes up the valley by car.

There are 5 bedrooms - 2 with double beds, 2 twins and a triple (1 double bed and 1 single).

There is a bathroom with shower over bath and twin basins, a shower and basin in the laundry and 2 separate wc's. (Please note there are no en-suite bedrooms.)

The lounge and dining area is a large airy open plan space with leather sofas, high beamed ceilings, large open fire and a 3m long handmade solid oak dining table.

The south facing balcony is accessed from the lounge and looks directly up to "Les Aiguilles de Chamonix" - the row of mountains whose precipitous North faces tower over the town.

Surrounded by mountains named after the earliest pioneers of mountaineering...Mummery, Whymper, Ravanel, and others...the majesty and history of this place will touch all those who visit in some way or another.
