The chalet has a traditional French look and feel constructed approximately 20 years ago. There are some accessibility issues which we always attempt to overcome as an operator but it is worth noting the below information and speaking with us about any concerns you may have. In general terms, if you have an issue with mobility then it would be best to speak to us first.
If you do have any accessibiliy concerns, please speak to us and we will try to accommodate and advise as best we can. For any accessibility concerns around Chamonix itself, please refer to this external link: Link to the resort accessibility page: Chamonix accessibility link
The access road to the chalet is a public road that is relatively steep but also very quiet. We have plenty of parking on a flat paved driveway. The Chamonix high street is approximately 1km along a flat minor road that has a mix of some pavement access. Access into the chalet itself into the ground floor level is relatively easy however alternative access to the middle (first) floor can be possible from the rear of the property (slightly higher up the access road).
The chalet is on 3 floors with the ground floor doorway being approximately 70cm width. As you enter, you’ll find a boot room area followed by access to 3 en suite bedrooms and the sauna/ changing room with shower. There are 18 stairs to the living area on the 1st floor with handrail. The floor also contains access to the Cave (storage and cellar) as well as the chalet staff accommodation.
The first floor is an open plan living area which has access to the rear of the chalet via a main door. There is 1 bedroom on this floor with detached bathroom/ toilet facilities. This floor also has an open plan kitchen and large dining area. There are steep steps up to the second floor mezzanine area which contains a landing area and two principal en suite bedrooms. These floors also have balcony access to a stunning view of Mont Blanc.
Additional information (WIFI, electrical, allergies)
Electrical information is based on continental standards and we have some UK adaptors for use within the chalet. Remote controls are available for equipment such as the main TV which has a full SKY package. Data within the chalet is relatively limited for WIFI – However, the mobile data around the chalet is good and most providers will see 4G access, if not 3G. For winter 2017 there is a chalet tablet available to use, and mobile phone reception is good.
We have access to non-feather pillows and all sheets are laundered professionally using Egyptian cotton. There are some hides/ shipskins situated in the chalet which can be removed.
The chalet’s garden is relatively large by Chamonix’ standards and the chalet itself is surrounded by level decking.
