Luxurious chalet with garden, perfect for 2 to 3 families or groups of friends The Mountain House is a large beautifully appointed chalet located next to the Verdasses nursery slope and 800m from Les Contamines' main ski lifts. It is perfect for two to three families, or large groups of friends. The free shuttle bus stops 100m from the chalet and if the snow is good you can ski directly back to the chalet via the (off piste) track that passes Columbaz.
The Mountain House is also a wonderful summer venue. It has a good size sunny garden (30m long; total property size 950m2) with stunning views of the high mountains. There is a barbecue, a large table and chairs and a parasol. As a family we have spent more time in Contamines in the summers than the winters over the last few years as there really is so much to do for all ages and interests. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss things to do in the summer, or anything else.
We bought this chalet in October 2016 and have furnished it to a high standard to provide a luxurious setting for a perfect alpine holiday. The furniture was installed in at the beginning of December 2016. In the main room this includes a solid oak 12-seater dining table and chairs; a large comfortable corner sofa and two armchairs; lots of new cushions and soft warm throws; a magnificent 120cm diameter antler chandelier; a beautiful reclaimed elm dresser; a 49 inch 4000k Sony smart TV & blu-ray player; Bluetooth enabled Onkyo amp connected to floor-standing KEF speakers; several tripod lamps and other large lamps; and a lovely antique telescope to make the most of the views of the of the mountains, forests, village and stars.
All the beds, mattresses, duvets, pillows, and bed linen are new (December 2016). All duvets and pillows are a mixture of goose down and feather and all the bed linen is 100% percale cotton. Three of the bedrooms have either king size or super-king beds and two have bunk beds plus a single bed. The 6th bedroom is a small room, not much bigger than the single bed it contains, but it has a large window, plenty of shelves for clothes etc, a bedside table and lamp and a comfortable new mattress.
The kitchen has a lovely 6-seater round oak table and chairs and a dishwasher, microwave, a Dualit coffee machine; 6-slice Dualit toaster; food processor and everything you need for preparing, cooking and serving large group meals in style.
The large garage has plenty of parking for two cars and plenty of space for skiing and boarding equipment. The chalet also has a large capacity Samsung washing machine; a large capacity Bosch drier; and a 24-boot boot-drier..
Children are very welcome. The chalet has two cots and two high chairs.
This listing is for the main chalet which comprises two-thirds of a very large (325m2) building that also includes a self-contained two-bedroom apartment and a self-contained one-bedroom apartment. These apartments can be rented separately at 30% off the published prices when you are renting the main chalet. The entire building can comfortably cater for 22 people. The building was designed by an architect as his family home and always included the self-contained apartments. As such the spaces flow very nicely and when in the main chalet you are unaware of the self-contained apartments, which are separated by thick concrete walls.
You enter the chalet on the middle floor, which includes a large main room with a double-height ceiling. Two of the six bedrooms (one with a super king bed and one with bunks plus a single) are upstairs, and four are downstairs from this middle floor. This separation of sleeping spaces works really well for two families, offering each their separate space and privacy. In addition to the 6 bedrooms which provide beds for 13 people, there is a sofa-bed that folds out in to a double bed in the living room.
There is a large shower room and WC upstairs, and two bathrooms (one en-suite) plus a separate WC downstairs. On the middle floor (the living area) there is also a separate WC.
Gemma W. Gorgeous chalet, amazing views & great location 5 out of 5 This is such a lovely chalet - luxuriously furnished and equipped with everything you need to cater for a large group. The views from all the windows and balconies are amazing. The location is great - with a restaurant a 2 minute walk away and the main village and ski lifts all about 10 minutes' walk away. Bob couldn't be a more helpful owner, and is very knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend a stay here - we will definitely be back! Review Submitted: 12-Dec-2016 Date of Stay: Nov 2016
