Chalet Eglantine is a fantastic luxury chalet, which has been beautifully renovated offering 240m2 of superb accommodation for up to 12 guests. This stunning 4/5 bedroom, 5 bathroom detached chalet is situated in the quiet hamlet of Vigny, overlooking Samoens. The chalet’s magnificent south-facing position affords uninterrupted views of the entire valley and its mountainous surrounds.
The chalet has been stylishly redesigned and yet maintains a warm alpine charm. It is full of character with original beams, and there are some stunning features including a fully imported Indian doorway with intricate design. The chalet’s owners enjoy an international lifestyle and this is something which is reflected in many stylish and custom-made furnishings. The chalet is sure to provide all visitors the ideal mountain holiday experience.
This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a flexible 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.
As you enter the chalet from its private drive you immediately have a sense of space. The light reflects on the clean, bright walls and high ceiling of the entrance foyer/ cloakroom with its three ski lockers and plenty of space for coats and shoes. Continue past the authentic and intricately designed Indian doorway of one of the chalet’s 6 WC’s and you enter the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. This space is flooded with light from large windows and double French doors leading onto the 30m2 south-facing terrace, all of which offer exceptional views of the surrounding mountains and countryside.
At the heart of the house is the chalet’s kitchen. It is superbly equipped with full-size fridge and separate freezer, four ring induction hob, multifunction oven, microwave, dishwasher and a full range of kitchen equipment including pasta maker, juice extractor, and ice-cream or sorbet maker. The chef of the day can keep up with dining room conversation as they prepare the meal at the kitchen’s main workbench overlooking the large wooden dining table. There is seating for up to 14 and a centre feature of this table is the overhanging glass chandelier. In the summer months why not enjoy al fresco dining or a BBQ on the terrace? The large outdoor dining setting seats 8 to 10 in comfort. The terrace also provides a comfortable outdoor lounge setting with seating for 6 under a large parasol.
When it’s time to relax, take a cosy seat by the fire on the enormous couch in the lounge. Or if you prefer retreat to the calm and quiet of the mezzanine level with its well-stocked library and reading area. For fun and entertainment the snug or 5th bedroom on the lower level is equipped with a flat screen TV which can be linked to your personal Apple TV account, DVD player, more books, games, playing cards and a large assortment of films. There are two white leather double sofa beds located in this room to be made up when the 5th bedroom is required. Also on the lower level of the house is the chalet’s utility room fitted with both washer and dryer. It should also be mentioned that guests at this chalet can enjoy free Wi-Fi access throughout the house and there is under floor heating throughout.

All five of Chalet Eglantine's stylish bedrooms are spacious and ensuite. Heated towel racks are provided in each bathroom and there is ample space to store your toiletries.
The south-facing master bedroom is situated on the mezzanine level, the highest point in the house, and so affords stunning views. This king-size bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe that runs the length of the room and its large ensuite bathroom is equipped with WC, bath and separate shower.
On the north side of the chalet’s entrance level is the ‘purple room’. This double room with queen-size bed has a built in wardrobe with drawers as well as ample hanging space. The spacious bathroom is fitted with bath, WC and a large vanity unit with two basins.
The chalet’s lower level has a further 3 south-facing bedrooms. The first is the ‘blue room’ which provides direct access to the lower terrace and gardens through its double French doors. This room has a queen-size bed with an intricately designed headboard which was sourced in India. There is a built in wardrobe, and the room’s ensuite bathroom is fitted with WC, shower and vanity unit. The blue theme is carried through into the bathroom where the wall tiles sparkle as if under water, a truly lovely effect.
The bunk room which sleeps four in two sets of full size bunks, is situated next door to the ‘blue room’. This is an ideal room for children with a splash of fun added by the large colourful floor rug. The ensuite bathroom with its cobbled stone flooring is fitted with WC, shower and vanity unit.
The fifth and final room is the snug where you will find the TV and entertainment unit. This room can be converted into a bedroom sleeping two guests in either a twin or double configuration. The large ensuite bathroom has a bath, WC and double vanity unit with two basins.
The quiet hamlet of Vigny, where the chalet is located, is steeped in agricultural history. As such the chalet’s private garden covers an area of 1300m2, upon much of which fruit trees still grow. There is one particular orchard-like cluster that provides a shady and tranquil picnic area for the summer months. In the winter months, when snow permits, the gentle slope of the chalet’s grounds make for perfect sledging terrain. Sledges are provided in the chalet.
The chalet also has private upper and lower terraces, both of which are south facing and afford beautiful views of the mountains and valley. There is ample parking on the private drive during summer, and in the winter months a tractor comes to clear the snow from the main road leading down to the house. If snow conditions are heavy there is alternative parking arrangements at the top of the road, just a short walk back down to the chalet (snow chains recommended).
Chalet Eglantine is located in the peaceful hamlet of Vigny, 2.3km from Samoëns village up the famous Col de Joux Plane Road. Its enviable south-facing position affords spectacular views over the Giffre valley, and the chalet's beautiful, natural surrounds make for the most idyllic setting come winter or summer.
In winter, the main Grand Massif Express lift is about a 15-minute drive away. A car would be required for this property but there is plenty of parking at the chalet, and free parking at the lift station and also in the village.
Chalet Eglantine is ideally located for summer holiday fun. The Col de Joux Plane is famous among road cycling fans and a number of mountain bike trails and hiking routes can also be accessed direct from the chalet.
Samoëns village is about a 12-minute drive back down the Joux Plane road and boasts many shops, bars and restaurants, as well as an impressive ice skating rink, the picturesque Jaÿsinia Botanical Gardens, and the wonderful medieval town square with its beautiful church, ancient buildings and bustling Wednesday morning market.
Chalet Eglantine is also just a 10-minute drive from the village of Morillon. There, you will find even more shops and restaurants and the beautiful Lac Bleu, which boasts an array of leisure facilities.

We enjoyed your house very much. We were two families, a group of 10 people. We all had our rooms, bathrooms and privacy, as well the lovely and comfortable living and dining room. Several times we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. We even used the gas barbecue. The sunny valley and the views were marvellous. The weather was exceptional. Blue sky for six days. Every member of the group was enthusiastic, so we would like to make a reservation for next year please!

What a lovely chalet with a stunning view and very well-equipped, We will be sad to leave. Could not think of a nicer place to stay while skiing. Merci.

We have loved the comfort and space that Chalet Eglantine offers. Beautiful views and fabulous weather. We've had such a great time and we've already booked for next year!

The house was more than big enough to house our 12 membered family, including the 4 small kids. All rooms had perfect and modern bathrooms, 3 of them even have a bathtub! There were lots of games, books and outdoorsy activities in order to entertain the little ones. Like a few sleds, a nice garden to play and for emergencies a TV with loads of movies. Best feature is the fireplace, as well as the nice open kitchen and the huge dining table (and floor heating!). We were blessed with half a meter of snow on 1st Christmas Day, which made the stay even more picturesque. Especially when you get to have an outside lunch in the sun on the huge balcony with a breathtaking view. In less than 10 minutes by car we were in the centre of Samoëns, and at the ski-lift. The information provided was really helpful and saved us a few hours and a lot of struggles. The best part was the heated ski locker on top of the mountain, which made the commute there and back really easy. The village is cozy and has all you need, including great wines and some good bakeries. All in all a perfect place to have a relaxing holiday!

Penny and Uco, the Anglo-Dutch owners of Chalet Eglantine, were looking for an alpine home within easy reach of Geneva Airport in a charming, unspoilt, family-friendly village that is as fun in the summer as it is in the winter. They quickly realised that Samoëns ticked all the boxes! After searching for over two years for their ideal chalet (which had to be South-facing and with enough space for their two children and plenty of friends), they ultimately fell for the stunning views from Chalet Eglantine. They realised they could make a great conversion from what had once been a 1970s James Bond-style residence, awash with shag pile and orange tones. The chalet has been brought up to date sympathetically and stylishly, mixing modern and alpine, keeping it both cosy and bright.
