Bringing all the charm and comfort you’d expect of a traditional French ski chalet, Chalet Violette is the perfect place to spend your next holiday. Set just a short hop away from the centre of lively Chamonix, Chalet Violette is an ideal choice for groups who enjoy a mix of action and relaxation. So, whether you’re a seasoned skier, or simple tagging along for the experience, Chalet Violette is a great place to base yourselves.

A stay at this pleasant two-floor six-bedroom chalet promises to bring heaps upon heaps of rustic elegance to your group. With a pleasant backdrop of winter woodland and dramatic Alpine mountains, this self-contained chalet offers private parking and plenty of room. Throughout Chalet Violette, traditional Alpine architecture set against modern simplistic decor helps to set the scene for a laid-back rustic escape with an edge of chicness.

Arriving at Chalet Violette, one of the first things you’re sure to notice is the lovely outdoor hot tub and sauna - perfect for rejuvenating after a tiring day on the mountain. Inside, you’ll enter by a spacious porch and entry hall, with a dedicated space to store your equipment between ski sessions located just inside the property.

A cosy living room points towards a traditional log cabin at the heart of the traditional home. Behind the lounge area is a long dining table, perfect for group meals that have been masterfully prepared in your fully-equipped kitchen. Offering subdued luxury through and through, one of the most popular aspects of Chalet Violette is the support from its owners. If, on occasion, you don’t fancy cooking - no problem, a private chef can be arranged within the home for a wonderfully unique dining experience.

Each floor of the chalet contains three bedrooms, all containing twin beds that can be pushed together to form doubles if needed along with private en-suite bathrooms. Dressed in simple comfortable decore, you’re sure to get a great night’s sleep at Chalet Violette.

To make the most of the views and crisp Alpine air, seating terraces are available on each floor with access provided directly via sets of bright patio doors.

To get to Chalet Violette, you’re in luck - you can either self-drive from home with ease or you can make your way to the chalet from Geneva Airport. Getting to Chalet Violette from Geneva is pretty straightforward, taking around just over an hour by car. While you can take shared coaches to Chamonix from Geneva, we do recommend renting a car during your stay as it makes getting around the resort significantly easier.

Once in Chamonix, you’ll find Chalet Violette located slightly back from the centre of town providing you with lots of space to rest and relax away from the lively resort centre. While much of the town is walkable, it’s about 20 minutes to the lifts from Valhalla1 which can be quite a trek with all your equipment in tow. Thankfully, ample parking is available close to the lifts should you wish to drive in, or you can make use of the resort’s well-planned public transport services.

All you need to enjoy your time in Chamonix is right on your doorstep, with shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and more just a short walk away. To get you started the nearest supermarket is around a ten-minute walk away while a number of casual bars and attractions are even closer.

Up on the pistes, you’ll find a fantastic range of runs suitable for every skill level - whether you’re absolute beginners or experienced snow lovers.

The Resort

Chamonix is often preceded by its own reputation. As one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, it has visitors travelling from all corners of the world to experience the epic runs year after year. The Chamonix town centre, also known as Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, is an endlessly inviting little city with enough going on to entertain skiers and non-skiers alike for weeks on end. For those travelling from the UK, it is fabulously easy to reach. You can drive straight from Calais by motorway and be set up in a gorgeous chalet in less than half a day.

The Chamonix Valley encompasses five main ski areas on four different mountains (with easy transfers in between). You can get yourself a single-resort lift pass or one that encompasses the whole valley. If you go with the latter option you’ll even have access to the Italian side of the valley in Courmayeur. The wider area encompasses 106 pistes at up to 3842m altitude and unparalleled off-piste runs. 

Most of Chamonix’s ski areas are best suited to those who already feel at home on a pair of skis. Beginners definitely won’t get as much out of this valley as those who are comfortable tackling a black run. But that’s not saying Chamonix is unromantic by any means. There is incredible scenery for everyone to enjoy, from non-skiers to experts, and nature lovers will fall in love with the Chamonix in summer too. Ski season, however, often lasts until mid-March.

Once the skiing is over at the end of the day you’ll still find plenty to keep you occupied in town. There is an excellent selection of restaurants to choose from, ranging from Michelin starred fine dining to street food that will line your stomach for the après-ski (and rest assured there are dozens of great bars and clubs to choose from!)

Inside, kids can connect to wireless internet to stream their favourite media, play games and keep connected to their friends and family back home. When not connected to their devices, they can join the rest of the group around the home’s TV to watch their favourite films and movies.

In the wider area, there is so much for kids to do the hardest thing is choosing where to start first. From Chalet Viollette, the family-friendly Parinoire de Chamonix is just a five-minute walk away. This indoor olympic-sized ice ring has lots of family fun on offer, from skating sessions and lessons to seasonal ice hockey matches.

For snow-based fun, take little ones for a go on the breath-taking Luge Alpine Coast of Chamonix. Perfect for thrillseekers of all ages, don't miss out on your chance to zip through the majestic Alpine forestscape on a two-person luge.
