A bright blue chalet with catslide roof set in the French countryside. Chalet Bleu is indeed unique, something you notice the moment you arrive via a laneway accessed from the road into Morillon.
Step inside to a perfect mix of cottage charm and modern comfort. To your right a hallway leads to the first of three spacious and well-appointed bedrooms. Here, you will also find the first of three bathrooms. A large closet housing the separate washer and dryer is also in the hall. In addition it is fitted with ski boot rack and storage shelves, custom-made by the owner. Ahead of you the glorious open-plan living, and dining room is a major highlight. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass, this lovely space affords stunning views down the valley to the Pic de Marcelly, and in the warmer months can be opened to provide access to the chalet’s garden.
In the winter, relax around the log burner in either of the two large, comfortable sofas or fabulous banana fibre rocking chairs. One of the sofas is a pull-out double sofa-bed and can be used to provide flexible sleeping options for larger groups. A TV, DVD player and games console are provided for your entertainment, along with a selection of DVDs and games, including dance mat and karaoke mics! There is also a large selection of books, board games and puzzles, plus Wi-Fi internet throughout.
The kitchen, also on the ground floor, is a lovely mix of old and new. The traditional cast iron, wood burning stove and hotplate combines with charming wooden cabinets, stylish wall tiles and a sleek granite work surface, that doubles as a breakfast bar. The kitchen comes equipped with additional electric oven and 4-burner gas hob, full-size fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, food processor, and all the bakeware and crockery/serving dishes and glassware you could possibly need. Coffee lovers are spoilt for choice too, with Nespresso machine, stovetop Italian cafetiere and Krups coffee maker all at your disposal. And if you’d like to try your hand at some traditional Savoyard fare of an evening, there is also a raclette machine and two fondue sets.
Dine with a view inside or step out onto your south-facing deck area, equipped with outdoor dining table and chairs. This is also where you will find your hot tub! An additional picnic bench and BBQ on the northern side of the chalet provide another space to dine al fresco. Or simply enjoy the 800m2 of gardens, the glorious outlook providing sunshine all-day long.
Back inside the chalet, walk up the wide wooden staircase to the second level where you will find your two remaining bedrooms. The king room has its own ensuite bathroom, while the triple room benefits from a large, private bathroom in the hall. There is also an additional balcony on this level, affording the same beautiful views to the west.
Chalet Bleu is a lovely choice for your year-round holidays to the Alps. Much loved by its owners, this charming accommodation offers you a truly warm, home-stay feel.
