Chalet Balthazar Samoens Main Image

Chalet Balthazar is a stunning 4/5 bedroom, 4 bathroom owner managed chalet with hot tub, boasting an excellent location on the edge of the historic village of Samoens. Spread over 153m2, this bright and spacious property can comfortably sleep 8-10 people.

The semi-detached chalet has been recently renovated to create a fresh and modern property.  Thoughtfully laid out to ensure each bedroom has floor to ceiling windows to provide a bright and uplifting atmosphere throughout, as well as framing the stunning views from each room. The chalet combines rustic wood, luxurious linen and soft furnishings, with local décor to give the property a contemporary alpine feel. Luxurious extras include a warming log burner, granite work surfaces, under floor heating, an impressive games room/home cinema room with a pool table, comfy corner sofa and large 152cm LCD TV with Blu-ray player and Xbox 360. 

Surrounded by open farmland and stunning mountain views in the sought after hamlet of Vallons, the chalet is just 9 minutes flat walk from the centre of Samoens. A 5 minute walk will take you to the closest ski bus stop, with a free and regular service to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoens.  The chalet is in an idyllic location for holidays throughout the year.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Saturday 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.

You enter Chalet Balthazar into a spacious entrance area which offers excellent storage for outdoor footwear and clothing. Carry on further into the property, and you enter the open plan kitchen, dining and living area, which is illuminated by a large window overlooking the gardens with beautiful views of distant farmland and mountains beyond. A comforting warmth can be felt radiating from grey slate floor tiles, which contrast wonderfully against the textured wood clad walls. The modern, fully equipped kitchen features a full size electric fan oven, 4 ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and granite work surface area, as well as luxurious extras such as a Nespresso coffee machine. In the dining area a beautiful chunky wood dining table, comfortably seating up to 10 people, rests below an attractive suspended light while offering more great views from the large east facing window. In the first of two separate living areas, a comfortable sofa offers a space to rest weary legs in front of the cosy, crackling log fire which takes centre stage in this room.

A real highlight of Chalet Balthazar is the vast lower level which combines a games room, home cinema and second living area to create a wonderful space to be enjoyed by the whole group. At one end of the room, guests will find a pool table while at the other is an enormous and very comfortable corner sofa which provides a luxurious vantage point to enjoy the large 152cm LCD TV with Blu-ray player, surround sound speakers and Xbox 360 games console. This sofa can be also be converted into a double bed.  Also located in the lower ground floor is a combined washing / drying machine. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.

Chalet Balthazar is a semi-detached chalet, connected to  4 bedroom chalet - Chalet Jeroboam.  For larger groups, both chalets can be booked together sleeping 18 in total.

Location

location

Chalet Balthazar occupies a fantastic position on the edge of Samoens in a peaceful, unspoilt location surrounded by open farmland with spectacular views in all directions. A scenic flat walk of around 9 minutes will take you to the picturesque village centre of Samoens where you will find cafes, restaurants, bars, local shops, boulangeries, and an excellent weekly market which is not to be missed!

A 5 minute walk will take you to the nearest ski bus stop which offers a regular free service to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoens which offers great links into the vast Grand Massif network. Alternatively, there is a large free car park opposite the same gondola.

In the summer months some of the best walking trails lead directly from the chalet, including those which lead up to the famous peak of Le Criou. For those looking for a more relaxed time, why not stroll through the unspoilt sleepy hamlet of Les Vallons, or join the gentle riverside trails between Samoens and Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval which are enjoyed equally on foot or by bike.
