The village of Les Houches is a short 6km from Chamonix and just under an hour from Geneva airport. Nestled in the heart of the Mont-Blanc Massif, Les Houches village-resort (950 m – 1900 m) offers you an outstanding panoramic view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix with 55kms of pistes, 18 ski lifts and an array of bars, restaurants and amenities. This is essentially a family resort, and in spite of development is essentially faithful to the traditional image of mountain holidays but is also famous for the legendary «La Verte des Houches», World Cup downhill piste. The slopes amount to the biggest single area in the Chamonix valley, with varied tree lined runs – a delight for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, as is the Bellevue snowpark for freestyle enthusiasts. It also offers 10 km of Nordic trails.
This chalet, which is priced to sell, consists of a lovely sunny terrace with views of the entire Chamonix valley, a light and airy living space and functional kitchen, cabin bedroom as well as a shower room on the ground floor.
The lower ground floor is where you will find the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a further room currently used for storage which could quite easily be converted into a bedroom. There is also an outdoor hot-tub with views over the Chamonix Valley
There is an additional mezzanine sleeping area above the main living room, so could comfortably sleep 8 as a second home.
Given the land area of 1200m2, of which 830m2 is buildable, there is the possibility to enlarge this chalet, or indeed build a further chalet if needed.
The situation is exceptional to say the least. It is slopeside on the famous Kandahar piste, used in the Men’s Downhill Skiing World Cup, with ‘clip in your skis and go’ access to the fantastic piste and tree-lined skiing available in Les Houches.
The village of Les Houches has an array of bars, restaurants and amenities, but yet is only 6km away from Chamonix and everything that this outdoor-mecca town provides.
It is just under an hour from Geneva airport.
