This vast chalet was constructed for luxurious holiday rentals and combines contemporary French Alpine architecture and design with the practical necessities for weekly high-end rentals for both summer and winter. The ski area of Flegere is only a short drive or a 15-minute walk. Chamonix centre can be reached within 5 minutes by car, 10 minutes by bike or approximately 35 minutes if you would choose to walk. Le Chalet has a sumptuous indoor swimming pool and spa area. There is also a gym, hot tub, hammam and cinema room - this chalet offers 5-star accommodation from top to toe! The use of these traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass stairway and slate dining table using iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel, (architect of the Eiffel Tower). This creates a stunning harmony respecting traditional building materials, and techniques with modern design features and technology. -- The left side of the property has three double bedrooms, which all have private bathrooms ensuite and access out to the garden via sliding doors. At the far end above the garage is a home-cinema room with the latest sound system– well away from the rest of the chalet.
