Overview

Photos and Description of this Les Houches holiday chalet

Chalet in Les Houches, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Peaceful, Cosy Chalet 5 Minutes Drive From The Lifts

Guests have exclusive use of the whole property.

Newly renovated charming chalet in the peaceful and romantic village of Vaudagne in the commune of Les Houches. Only 5 minutes drive from the shops, restaurants and ski lifts of Les Houches but the setting is rural and very pretty in winter snow or in summer with the alpine flowers and lush forests.

Renovated to a luxury standard September 2014 Chalet Fiz now boasts 3 spacious double bedrooms 2 with ensuite bathrooms, a high spec kitchen, 6 man hot tub and very large garden.

3 double bedroom detached chalet. 2 bathrooms (2 showers, 1 bath), fully fitted designer kitchen, dining area with seating for up to 8, comfortable living area with wood burner.

Chalet Fiz is located in the pretty mountain village of Vaudagne, 5 minutes drive from the bars, restaurants and lift system of Les Houches. Chamonix town is only 10/15 minutes drive.

The chalet has a 2000 sq meter garden at the back with a small stream running through it and great views of the Fiz mountain range.

At the front Chalet Fiz has a long balcony with wonderful views across to the Chaine des Fiz mountains and at night the twinkling lights of Passy village below.

The setting of the chalet is very quiet and calm and the large garden behind the chalet is wonderful. Chalet Fiz is a lovely mountain getaway but the lifts and bright lights of Les Houches and Chamonix are very close.

A car is recommended but there is a nearby (walkable) train stop at Vaudagne. Alternatively please ask me and I can arrange airport and in-resort transfers for the duration of your stay.

Chalet Fiz has 3 spacious bedrooms all with very comfortable double beds. The chalet can sleep up to 8 people as 2 single beds can be added to the largest top floor bedroom. There are 2 bathrooms offering 1 bath and 2 separate showers.

The living area is well appointed and comfortable with WiFi, Bluetooth stereo system, UK satellite and French internet TV. There is an extendable dining table with seating for 8 and a brand new well equipped kitchen. The centre piece of the living area is the huge wood burner that keeps the whole house warm and welcoming. Wood is provided at no extra cost.

The front of the chalet has a balcony with nice views out of the valley across to the Chaine des Fiz mountains and Servoz village below. At the back of the chalet is a 2000 sq meter garden with fruit trees and a stream running through it.

There is also a large decking area with 6 man hot tub.

Summer or winter Chalet Fiz offers a very peaceful and pretty location along with high standard accommodation.

Corin is on call if needed.

The Neighborhood is tranquil with lovely views and surroundings. Quiet road and easy access to the forest trails.

Enjoy the beautiful garden summer or winter on the decking or in the hot tub.

The Vaudagne train station is 10 minutes walk through the forest.

Parking for up to 4 cars on site.

Geneva airport is 50 minutes drive.

About Corin Martin

Property owner and manager. English and French speaking. Snowboarder and skier.

I am available most of the year to help if you have any questions or need any advise.

Corin Martin purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Corin Martin chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc

Chalet Fiz is a really charming chalet with a large, beautiful garden. The chalet is in a charming hamlet but only a short drive to all the other parts of the valley as the motorway is very close by car. Les Houches is only 5 minutes and has everything you need with the best supermarkets in the valley.

Chalet Fiz is also very warm and cosy in winter with the huge wood burner and you can watch the snow fall through the triple folding doors at one end of the lounge. These can be completely opened up in summer with access onto the large new deck and 5 man hot tub. The lounge, bedrooms and beds are all very comfortable and the main bathroom and kitchen very stylish after a full renovation. There is also a good tv and sound system with a DVD collection.

What makes this chalet unique

The very large garden with a stream running through it and surrounding forest is an unusual bonus in the valley. In summer there are many flowers and the forest is amazingly green!

I love the outdoor hot tub under the stars and the sound of the stream running through the garden.

Vaudagne is a great place to go for walks and admire the stunning scenery. Les Houches is also a great place to ski with lovely forest runs and great 360 views. The restaurants on the pistes in Les Houches are also the best in the valley.

The perfect mountain get away

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect mountain chalet for a group of people visiting the Chamonix Valley. Straight out the door you are into stunning alpine countryside with numerous paths to explore. Chamonix is just ten minutes down the road in the car, but Les Houches is even closer and has two supermarkets.

The chalet itself is sumptuously decorated with a keen eye for detail and also includes some enchanting photography from the local area.

There is everything you could possibly want here. The fire is a wonderful contraption to behold and soon has the place warmed up. And the hot tub is fantastic. All rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The beds are very comfy.

Corin is a knowledgeable and charming host who makes sure you have everything you could possibly need and even keeps you abreast of local events.

The garden is also beautiful and clearly a lot of effort has gone into it. It's so pretty I want to go back there with my daughter just to show her how wonderful a garden can be.

A real gem that I would definitely recommend to anybody.

I hope I will return.

Outstanding location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful mountain chalet in an outstanding location. Modern, clean and well equipped. Corin and his wife were very responsive in resolving a small issue with the dishwasher immediately.

My only criticism would be that a handrail of some kind (i.e. rope) would make the very steep stairs a little safer. My 71 year old mother and slightly disabled brother (metal plates in one hip) found the stairs quite difficult.

A fondue set would have been good too - an essential piece of kitchen equipment for the region!

Stunning scenery, great chalet.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was just as advertised. Easy to find thanks to counting the bends in the road from the map.

The chalet was spacious for us four, and friends joined us for one night with still loads or room to spare. The furnishings and linen were good quality. The chalet was clean.

The living area spilling out onto the deck was wonderful. We barbecued most nights (couldn't find bbq tools so a knife did the job well) and finished the night star gazing from the hot tub.

The chalet to Chamonix is a 13km cycle on quiet roads, up up up to start with then a long gentle downhill. We loved the route. the Tour de France was close by on two days so we enjoyed finding our spot on le Bettex and in Sallanches to spectate.

Mount Blanc peeked through the trees at the back of the garden. In the hot afternoons we cooled out feet in the tiny stream, just bliss.

We loved our week in chalet fiz.
