On top of this, the chalet enjoys some of the best views in the valley. There's not only a large sunny balcony to enjoy them from but enormous floor to ceiling windows which lets the sunlight stream through.
Chalet Les Houches has been recently renovated and sleeps 9. The chalet has an open plan sitting and dining area providing ample space for relaxing in front of a roaring log fire, along with a separate TV and games room. As if that wasn't enough, the chalet is also approached through its own woodland and has a sauna and outdoor hot tub!
Welcome to a truly idyllic holiday retreat!

Chalet Les Houches is one of the few ski in ski out chalets in the Chamonix valley. It is situated in a magical setting in its own private grounds, and enjoys truly spectacular views, with the centre of Les Houches only a 5 minute drive away.
Although the chalet is ski in ski out, it is located on the side of a red run. If you're comfortable skiing a blue run, you'll probably be able to ski back to the chalet as you can ski virtually all the way down on a blue, with only the last section after the chalet providing the challenge of a red run. Also, if you walk down the drive, another blue home run is only 50 metres away.
The chalet has a 160 metre drive that can only really be accessed by a 4x4 with snow tires in winter - this may mean you will have to walk up and down it for access. There is also a mazot down by the parking at the bottom of the drive, so it's easy to leave your skis there if you can't drive up.
Les Houches village is only a 5 minute drive away. You'll find a number of shops, supermarkets and restaurants there, but Chamonix is only a further 10 minute drive away. Chamonix itself is world-renowned as the skiing and climbing capital of the world. It hosted the first Winter Olympics in 1924 and since then has been a centre for extreme sports in both summer and winter - but Chamonix offers far more to you than extreme sports!
Sitting at the base of the majestic Mont Blanc (Europe's highest mountain) it is an area of outstanding natural beauty with an elegant and cosmopolitan town centre. It also has some of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring scenery to be found anywhere (not just in the Alps!) with tumbling glaciers, soaring Aiguilles, and one of Europe's highest cable cars - the Aiguille du Midi at 3842m.
There's also plenty for the non-skier to do in Chamonix, including an impressive sports and swimming complex, beauty salons, spas, an ice rink, cross country skiing, paragliding, husky sledging, guided snowshoeing, a cinema, museum, casino and weekly market with fresh local produce. There's a plethora of shops and designer boutiques for retail therapy as well as bars, restaurants, terraced cafes and night-clubs. Chamonix offers a combination of skiing, old town charm, apres-ski, shopping and sightseeing.
Chamonix boasts a superb snow record, a long season (Dec-May), unrivalled off-piste skiing and views to die for. Indeed, Chamonix has an international reputation as having some of the most spectacular, challenging and exhilarating skiing and boarding available anywhere in the world. The Chamonix valley is both huge and daunting - and that's before you figure in the neighbouring resorts!
The Mont Blanc lift pass covers 8 local and 13 regional ski areas with terrain up to 3840m, over 200 lifts and 700km of piste - with the majority of the ski areas being above 2000m. It caters for all standards, from beginners right through to experts.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable.

The Resort

Chamonix’s reputation often precedes it, especially if you’re a seasoned skier and snowboarder – and it’s often cited as a resort that doesn’t go easy on those who brave a trip down its challenging slopes. Beginners definitely won’t get as much out of Chamonix as those who are comfortable tackling a black run.

That’s not say Chamonix is totally unromantic, just that skiing is a higher priority than anything else here. The scope and challenge of both on- and off-piste runs is arguably the best in Europe, but this brings its own share of problems. You can often be stymied when queueing up for lifts, and travelling between the various areas by bus or car can often make it feel like you’re wasting valuable powder time. The skiing when you get up to the heights is well worth it though, even if you’ll have to get up pretty early in the morning to find fresh tracks.

And as one of the oldest ski resorts in the world, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied once the skiing is over at the end of the day. There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from, ranging from five that boast a Michelin Star to the kind of places where you can just grab something cheap and tasty to line your stomach for the apres-ski – and rest assured there are dozens of great bars and clubs to choose from! The shopping is excellent too, so make sure you save a few euros to spend in some of Chamonix’s most exclusive boutiques.

 - Loads of lift and ski pass information can be found here.

 - There’s some great links to equipment hire here.

 - Nearest airport: Geneva (60 miles) with coach transfers starting from around €20
