The chalet offers a truly luxurious experience, including a steamy hot tub, large bedrooms with super king size beds, a log burner, two living areas, and a huge fully equipped double kitchen with range cooker and breakfast bar.  Finished to an excellent standard with a wonderful mix of French Chateau style decor and local Savoie touches, it creates a stylish and sumptuous interior, yet manages to retain a comfortable, relaxing and calm feel.  Throughout the property you will find elegant chandeliers and bed side lights, beautifully painted wardrobes and chests, plus deep comfortable sofas in the living areas.
