Chalet Simone is actually an old village house, thoughtfully renovated and furnished to create perfect accommodation for two or three families or a large group of friends or colleagues. The house sleeps 15 people in five bedrooms, four of which have ensuite bathrooms with showers.
Located just 25 metres from the river La Guisane and just 200 metres from the ski lifts, it sits in a quiet but convenient position, surrounded by other traditional village houses and attractive chalets.
You’re welcomed by the kitchen and dining area as you enter the house, and then a step down takes you into a magnificent vaulted lounge with TV, DVD, hifi and an open fire place for you to enjoy year round.
On the first floor there are two ensuite bedrooms, each sleeping up to four guests (one with original stable-door and traditional wooden features throughout), an independent WC and a useful storage area with washing machine and tumble dryer.
The top floor has three bedrooms. The first is a large family room with double bed and ensuite bathroom plus a mezzanine (ladder up to roof space) with two single beds. There is a twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a single bedroom with sink. All of the bedrooms are carpeted and often described as cosy by guests – meaning warm and comfy, not at all small!
The open fire place in the lounge is ideal for those autumn and winter evenings, but the house is a cool retreat during the hot summers. The garden is well-equipped with a BBQ and table, chairs and sunloungers – perfect for children to play safely while you sit back with a book and a glass of wine!
