A fabulous ski-in & ski-out location right by the lifts and at the foot of the slopes, close to the Vormaine beginners' ski area. The chalet has a frontline position in the ancient village of Le Tour (1,500m altitude) near Argentiere at the top of the Chamonix valley. This location has the best snow record in the Alps with reliable skiing well into May each year at Le Tour and the nearby Grands Montets.
The sumptuous top floor lounge and dining area accommodates large groups in comfort and space with stunning views down the Chamonix valley through the floor to ceiling windows and from the panoramic balcony or the outside spa hot-tub.

The lounge and dining area is on the second floor of the chalet and is fronted with floor to ceiling windows leading out onto a panoramic balcony. The south facing views over the Mont Blanc massif are breathtaking. Guests can relax here with unobstructed frontline views of some of the most spectacular scenery the valley has to offer including the Aiguilles Rouges and Le Tour Glacier.

Set at the foot of Mont Blanc, Chamonix is Europe's foremost alpine area and is one of the most visited natural sites in the world. From the town centre Europe's highest cable car will take you to the spectacular Aiguille du Midi at 3,842m and the start of the famous Vallee Blanche 16km ski run. The views from here really are literally breathtaking.
A destination with a reputation for the extreme and this, whilst undoubtedly true, is matched by a wide array of sporting and leisure activities, peace and quiet, great nightlife, and superb scenery that can be enjoyed at whatever pace suits you. There really is something for everyone here. The lively streets of Chamonix are colourful with a mix of sports & fashion shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. Every Saturday morning the town hosts an outdoor market brimming with local crafts and produce. There is a cinema, a bowling alley, an ice rink, a large sports centre with a pool, gym and indoor climbing wall and numerous museums in which to while away the day.
Although having a car is not essential as there is a free shuttle-bus every 15 minutes (during the day) linking the chalet to all areas of the valley, in the ski season, a rented car is recommended for evening and summer use and gives you more flexibility for exploring the variety of resorts in the Chamonix Valley.
The chalet has 10 bedrooms, mostly with en-suite bathrooms and balconies. There are two master suites with adjoining twin bunk rooms and six further bedrooms all with high quality bedding and furnishings.
