The Chalet

Introduction

chalet_front_crop

Chalet-Les-Vernets is a typical Savoyard chalet built around 1813 as a valley dwelling. Originally it would have had a stone built ground floor and then timber construction above. The chalet now has timber-clad masonry up to the roof level and has been sympathetically modernised to incorporate 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large lounge, large kitchen with farmhouse table, large garage and entrance lobby.

The chalet offers spacious self catering accommodation with 12 bed places in 5 bedrooms.

Large patio doors lead out onto a flagged terrace; an ideal lunch spot overlooking the pasture and woodland. From the terrace you can access the stable, now used as a wood store for winter blazes.

Outside, at the front is a gravelled drive and parking area which can comfortably house 3 or 4 cars, Being on the road between Albertville and Beaufort is handy for access each way and also guarantees winter access to and from the chalet.

The chalet is at the base of Mont Mirantin which rises up through forests from the valley and eventually out onto snow and rock peaks at 2700m. The land belonging to the house covers 7.5 acres and comprises a large meadow which is ideal for children to play in surrounded on 2 sides by beautiful mature woodland with some lovely walks through. We even have our own waterfall!

The rear of the chalet catches the sun from about 10.30am in summer and catches the last rays at sundown as the sun sets over the valley.

Wildlife around the chalet is plentiful and you may spot deer, boar, squirrels, ermines, woodpeckers, lizards and many other bird and animal species.

Downstairs

The chalet will comfortably house 12 people and is popular with groups and large families. Downstairs is semi open-plan with the lounge and kitchen adjacent with a walk-through area.
