In the heart of Les Bois, the centre of the Chamonix valley, Chalet Cerisier is at once both secluded and in perfect proximity to ski lifts, to summer trails, and to every convenience of Chamonix town.
The chalet is built mainly from wood, with traditional alpine joints in the massive beams. However the feel is modern, with polished stone and wood floors and the massive windows. Modern technology is used throughout, from the geothermal heating and insulation to the kitchen and entertainment systems.
The living area is on the first floor to take full advantage of the views and to make maximum use of the massive balcony. There are sofas and armchairs for the entire party, an open log fire, a Bose entertainment system and Sky TV, with a drop-down projection screen for late night DVDs - all of it under one of the largest windows you are ever likely to see, with what is perhaps one of Chamonix's most striking and unusual views: looking straight up at the twin peaks of Les Drus. Mont Blanc itself dominates the view down the valley.
The chalet's dining space is adjacent. Right next to the kitchen area, the broad and solid wooden table seats 10 with plenty of elbow room, perfect for lazy breakfasts, sit-down dinners or even a little work on the laptop.
There are tables and chairs on the wrap-around balcony too, should you fancy a bit of sunrise freshness - or sunset romance - with your meal.
The kitchen is beautifully constructed from wood and granite, with Siemens ovens and induction hob. There is also a large American fridge-freezer and of course a dishwasher.
The bedrooms are as airy and spacious as the rest of the chalet; our intent when building Chalet Cerisier was to create a feeling of relaxation throughout, and you will find no clutter and nothing squeezed into corners. Light wood, large windows and satellite television are standard to every room.
The master suite is on the first floor with its own walk-through dressing room to the fabulous bathroom. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the level above, one with bath and shower and one with shower. Two further bedrooms are on the ground floor, both with en-suite shower rooms and one with an adjoining studio living room, which opens out into the terrace and garden. All the bedrooms can be made up as either double or twin beds.
The 6 person sauna is downstairs. Also on the lower floor is a hidden gem - the only room without windows makes the perfect snug escape, whether you're leaving the kids with the X-Box 360 or if you're finding a hidden and intimate space for snoozing in front of a film.
There is also a games room with a proper pool table and a darts board, as well as a fully equipped laundry with washing machine and dryer.
The exterior of Chalet Cerisier is just as strikingly spacious as its interior. The wrap-around balcony has tables, chairs and ample room for dining outdoors, aided by the modern gas BBQ; the enormous garden is bordered by open fields and gentle woodland with paths leading up into the hills and, unusually for Chamonix, it is flat: perfect for snowman building, and in the summer there's plenty of room for an impromptu game of cricket or just lazing on the grass.
Though many chalets have outdoor hot tubs, few are complimented either by the space of the huge garden or by the dominating and awe-inspiring sight of Les Drus towering above you.
