Full description:

Lower ground floor

With the exception of the fully tiled bathrooms and sauna, the lower floor is carpeted and all rooms have centrally heated radiators with additional ceiling height radiant heaters to each of the bathrooms.

Master bedroom (double)

Large comfortable king sized bed with double wardrobes and triple dresser leading to very large fully tiled en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower (if you like power showering - you will not be disappointed with our showers), sink with lit mirrored cabinet, toilet and bidet and floor to ceiling built in shelving unit.

French doors to patio and garden areas, wrapping around the chalet facing the valley and mountain views.

Bedroom 2 (double)

Large king size bed with triple wardrobes and additional hanging space leading to French doors to patio and garden areas wrapping around the chalet facing the valley and mountain views.

Spacious hallway with discrete storage areas under the stairs leading to:

Bathroom 2 (opposite bedroom 2)

Fully tiled bathroom with free-standing shower unit with power shower, toilet and sink and lit mirrored cabinet.


Traditional indoor Swiss wooden sauna, large enough to accommodate a group after a hard day's skiing.

Stairs leading to the ground floor open plan main living area.

Ground floor - open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area

Large sitting room with 2 sets of French windows taking in fully the views over the valley and two mountain areas. Windows are also set to the sides of the sitting and dining area to take further advantage of the views wrapping around the chalet.

There are two large sofas (including a 5 seater and a comfortable large sofa bed), an arm chair, wicker chair, large coffee/tv dinner table, entertainment cabinet with Samsung flat screen tv and a satellite tv for when you want to relax or catch up on your favourite programmes. There is also a JVC speaker system. There is a wide selection of books (including some childrens' books).

We have a traditional wood burning real fire adding further to the comforts of this already delightfully warm and cozy chalet. Logs are available to buy locally.


The adjoining dining area enjoys views through a set of French doors and large side window. There is a traditional wooden round dining table with seating for up to 10 people, although we prefer more elbow room and usually aim for no more than 8 adult diners.


The open plan living and dining area opens to a fully equipped kitchen with ample storage cupboards, large fridge with integral freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven and a flat glass hob.

The side exit door leads to the wrap around balcony and garden area.

At the heart of the house is a wooden staircase which leads to the upper and lower bedroom floors. For those bringing toddlers we recommend the use of a child safety gate. We have one available for you

to use in the chalet - which separates the main living area from the rest of the house.


The main hallway leads to the front door and comprises a cloak cabinet with ample room for coats and shoes and a mirror to check your gear before heading onto the slopes. It's here where many of the board games and there like are kept.

Bathroom 3/utility

The hallway leads to the third bathroom which comprises a toilet, sink and, as it is near to the front door, we have incorporated a utility area here with a washer/dryer and hanging space/airer to dry ski gear and keep shoes and snow shoes out of the way and cozy on the tiled under floor heating.

The chalet is also fully equipped with the usual cleaning and laundry equipment.

Upper floor

Set in the eaves with ample head room for adults, and a quaint hide away for the children, are two further adjoining bedrooms. Both are carpeted.

Bedroom 3 (large double sofa bed)

At the top of the open stairs is a well sized room which houses a double sofa bed and storage shelves. A bedroom/game room, it has a flat screen TV to use with X Box (DVD player) and a selection of games. The perfect hide away for children.

Bedroom 4 (twin)

Leading from/through bedroom 3 is a fourth bedroom which enjoys a picture window which bathes the room in light. Slightly smaller than bedroom 3, this is a well sized with 3 single beds. with bed side table and under bed pull out storage.

Babies and toddlers

We have 2 travel cots available (please bring your own bedding), 2 high chairs, changing mat, potty that you can borrow too - but, as with all baby items, we simply ask that you make sure they are properly cleaned before you leave as we don't want any germs hanging around for the little ones!



Linen for the bedrooms and a bath towel each (except separate baby towel) are included in the price of your winter stay. Beds are made for your arrival.


In spring, summer and autumn we can arrange linen and towel bails to be provided at cost price.

Currently £50 double bed £25 each single. Kitchen towels are not provided.


Garage and heated boot cupboard. Situated next to the front door and is the perfect place to store your skis, snowboards, mountain bikes and any other outdoor equipment you may have. There is a heated boot cupboard. Bring as much or as little as you like - there is plenty of room to store everything!

You are welcome to use our garden furniture either on the balconies or the garden areas to help you take full advantage of the wonderful and varied views which open to the different mountain ranges and valley beneath. We would simply ask that you pop them back into the garage at the end of your stay.

Parking area

We have a driveway to fit one car. However, there is plenty of space for several cars to park on the area beside the road, immediately outside the chalet. This is where we usually park our cars, particularly in winter.


Access is via a gently sloping driveway - which is stark contrast to many chalets in the village. So, no clambering up and down steps with your skis or board and/or children! We find this invaluable!


We have complimentary wifi access.

    Wonderful Chalet right next to the slopes!

    The Chalet is very cosy. The open plan area is very convenient for a large family. There are many small touches that add up to an incredible stay such as the sauna, the cupboard that warm you ski shoes in the garage, the really good sound system on which we played our Christmas music. There is a small slope running 2 meters from the front door that leads to the main slope 200 meters away. Perfect! Everything is very quiet up there, the perfect place to disconnect from day to day life.

    Great Family location as promised

    We went early in the season, booked our stay from the 23rd Dec till the 7th Jan. Due to it being early in the season we had to walk 100m to the slopes to start skiing; same location as the friendly bar with great hot dogs for kids and nice "hot" chocolate (including rum) for adults. The accommodation was as promised; great views, great location in the village. Being there over New Years eve we were also able to experience the surrounding valleys fireworks all from the comfort of the chalet. The grocer in the village has a monopoly and charges can be hefty, so if you driving in, we would recommend stocking up on groceries before heading up to La Tzoumaz. Excited to stay there again.
