Hidden away in private forests near Mont Blanc, Chalet F'Net is a secluded contemporary mountain retreat. The chalet is an exclusive mountain home for those with a spirit of adventure who seek a new type of luxury: beautifully designed spaces, delicious food and Alpine escapism.
This 19th-century chalet d’alpage was recently renovated by David and Anjana Devoy, best-known for their Curved House project in Clapham, London, featured on the TV show, Grand Designs. They have brought the same sense of passion and style to this project. The chalet has been featured in Marie Claire Maison, Grazie and Biba, as well as on French design show, La maison.
Saint Gervais-les-Bains is one of the most elegant resort towns in the French Alps, evoking memories of Audrey Hepburn drinking kir royales in Charade or perhaps David Niven racing an open-top car in calfskin gloves round switchback turns.
The outside of the chalet has been sensitively restored with antique Alpine timbers and stonework. Inside, old world wood and furs, stoves and bathtubs have been given a quirky modern spin, while retaining their romantic charm.
The cabin has two bedrooms, one in the former hayloft with a free-standing copper bath, and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom on the ground floor. There’s also a wood-clad hot tub, perfect for romantic winter evenings.
The chalet has a bio-ethanol fireplace in the master bedroom suite, a revolving wood-burning stove and additional heating, including underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. Amenities include a hairdryer, iron and board, linens and towels.
The kitchen has a Nespresso capsule coffee maker, double Miele oven, refrigerator, gas hob and toaster, with a selection of basic pantry items. The dining area has a monumental wooden table.
There is a growing selection of books and games and DVDs, as well as a television with DVD player on which to play these films. Please be advised that there is no television network and intermittent internet in the cabin, though 3G works reasonably well.
F'Net has been welcoming Chaletowners guests since 18 Nov 2019.
The cabin is managed by a concierge, who lives in a small, picturesque mazot, or mini-chalet, adjacent to the property. Your concierge can help with luggage and provisions.
You have the option of choosing bespoke private dining prepared by a resident cordon bleu trained chef, in partnership with Jacqueline Wise Chefs: you can contact Jacqueline for a very special personalised menu. You can, of course, also opt for self-catering.

The chalet is located a short ATV ride from the ski lifts, above the village of Saint Gervais-les-Bains, close to Chamonix and only 15 minutes’ drive from the A40 autoroute.
During deep winter, snow chains are highly recommended for the journey from St Gervais to the car park below the chalet.
You are welcome to walk or sledge the remaining 400m up and down the hill to the chalet. Your host can help you with luggage.
Around the chalet in St Gervais, there is excellent skiing and adventures to be had.
