The Refuge

Chalet La Chapelle, originally the site of a chapel built in the 1800’s, has been recently renovated to a very high standard. Set over three levels within 1500sqm of its own private gardens, the chalet provides spacious accommodation for up to 12 people, complete with grand dining/living area and Swedish style cedar hot tub.

On the ground floor, the spacious living and dining room is decorated with modern furnishings, a huge glass dining table, subtle lighting and a log-burning fire. This grand dining living area has a balcony and offers fantastic views of Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles du Chamonix.

The six bedrooms all have Egyptian cotton linen, towels and bathrobes and beautiful views of the Chamonix Valley.

Each room is decorated individually, all with en-suite luxury bathrooms with large walk in showers, stylish Italian tiles and complimentary toiletries.

The private garden is on three levels, with a large decking area; this is home to the 8 person cedar hot tub, with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

The chalet is just a two minute drive or 10 minute walk from the centre of Chamonix making it perfect for guests wanting a peaceful mountain setting, whilst being very close to both Chamonix town and the Brevent and Flegere ski lifts.
