Chalet du Mont des Fraises is a stunning 420m2 luxurious alpine chalet, sleeping 10 people in 5 bedrooms. One of the many highlights is a private 9 metre swimming pool, surrounded by sunny decking and lawn, positioned in the peaceful and secluded private gardens. 

This wonderfully spacious chalet has one of the largest surface areas in our portfolio, and guests can enjoy a bright and convivial open plan dining, kitchen and living area.  The impressive open log fire with a stone and rustic wood finish extends into the double height feature wall. Clever use of lighting highlights exposed beams and intricate woodwork of the double height ceiling, while attractive lamps are used to great effect and help create a cosy atmosphere. A long and deep comfortable corner sofa is positioned in front of a large LCD Smart TV with surround sound music system and Blu-ray player. On the lower level, the bar/cinema room contains a second LCD TV and impressive sound system for a great movie experience, or some after dinner dancing with friends and family!

Chalet du Mont des Fraises boasts a great location for year round holidays in our beautiful Alpine valley. Positioned in a peaceful, unspoilt hamlet of Samoens called Vallon d'en Haut, the chalet is a short 3-4 minute drive from the historic village centre of Samoens, where ample free parking is available. Alternatively a flat and very scenic walk of around 25-30 minutes through the sleepy hamlets of Les Vallons, or via the banks of the tumbling river Giffre takes you into the resort. In winter, a ski bus stop is just 300m from the chalet with a free and regular service to the Grand Massif Express telecabine in Samoens. For those looking to explore the wonderful alpine vistas surrounding the chalet, there are several walking/cycling paths which pass close to the chalet, with everything from gentle strolls to soaring peaks on your doorstep. In winter, cross country pistes can be found just 400m from the chalet.

Chalet du Mont des Fraises comes complete with a large double garage ideal for 2 vehicles and loads of bike storage.  An additional 350m2 external parking area provides further parking for at least 4 cars.  The whole property is totally enclosed by a beautiful mature hedge and the entrance is secured by a large remote control entrance gate.  Sun loungers, a large table and chairs, and table tennis are all available.

Coming soon! For winter season 2017/18, Chalet du Mont des Fraises will feature a brand new external hot tub. In addition, bedroom 2 will come complete with the luxury of a new ensuite bathroom.

This property is privately owned and we are delighted to include it in our portfolio. It has a Sunday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.
