A spacious and beautifully furnished ski chalet with a garden, a jacuzzi, uninterrupted views of Mont Blanc and easy, walking access to the ski station of Grand Montet in the Chamonix valley.
Sleeping up to 13 people in en-suite bedrooms, Chalet Smart is ideal for larger groups of friends or more than one family to holiday together.
It has a large flat and sunny garden with a jacuzzi and secure underground parking.
In summer there is garden furniture and table tennis for guests
The exterior makes much use of recycled wood and the chalet was built by one of the region's most experienced chalet constructors and then furnished by one of London’s top interior designers. The result is a sumptuous property that carries all the charm of luxury living in the French Alps.
The large flat and fenced garden faces south-west with stunning views up on to the Mt Blanc massif and down the Chamonix valley and is a wonderful area for children to play in or adults to exercise, do yoga or simply relax. The eight-person jacuzzi is running Summer and Winter for guests to relax in and the decked area has a table, chairs and a BBQ for outdoor dining.
Undoubtedly one of the most striking features of this chalet is the large Master Bedroom, which not only has two bathrooms, but a double bed built up close to the windows to allow guests to take advantage of the stunning views of Mont Blanc.
With four floors, five bedrooms, underground parking, a jacuzzi, a TV and games room this stunning alpine ski chalet is a fantastic place to stay for groups of up to 13 people.
Just 200m from the main Chamonix to Argentiere road, the chalet sits on the Petit Balcon Sud walking track, giving easy access to the network of paths that run around the valley, and is only 500m from the Grands Montets lift.
INSIDE CHALET SMART
Chalet Smart is built over four floors and contains four en-suite bedrooms on the upper three floors and a fifth en-suite room in the basement that contains four single beds and TV and a table football (Babyfoot). We operate as a TV games room most of the time, unless group size requires it, although it makes a fantastic bedroom for children.
The property is generally entered through the large underground garage where there’s dedicated parking for up to three vehicles. Entering the chalet, guests arrive in the basement level first which contains:
• Entrance room/cloakroom with ski boot dryer
• Bedroom #1 - The lower bedroom contains three single beds and is mainly used as an overflow bedroom when the chalet hosts more than ten guests. This room is serviced by a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
When guest size is smaller we generally keep this room as a TV & Games room with British TV. (There is an extensive DVD collection in the chalet) and table football (Babyfoot)
• Utility room with washing and drying machine and extra fridge
This floor contains the main living area and one bedroom and consists of:
• Dining area with a table that seats ten people – additional seating and table space can be added if your group exceeds ten.
• A comfortable lounge area with couches, chairs and a wood-burning stove. Wood is supplied.
• A well-equipped kitchen for guests or one of our chefs to prepare meals.
• British and French TV and iPod/iPhone docking station
• Bedroom #2 a double or twin with en-suite facilities, British TV and DVD player

THE FIRST FLOOR
This floor contains two bedrooms and consists of:
• Bedroom #3 is undoubtedly one of the most attractive features of this chalet: an opulent, west-facing bedroom that spans the entire chalet and serviced by two separate bathrooms.
The large double bed is specifically positioned to look down the Chamonix valley and take advantage of the breathtaking Mont Blanc views. A balcony lies at the end of the bed for guests to step outside and watch the sun go down or the moon rise over the highest peaks in Europe.
This bedroom can be set up either as a double with ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ bathrooms or a twin bedroom with separate bathrooms.
• Bedroom #4:
Double or twin with en-suite bathroom with separate bath and shower
THE SECOND FLOOR
The top floor of the chalet is an open plan space that consists of:
• A large open in the eaves of the chalet that sleeps up to four people in either two doubles or four single beds.
• Ensuite bathroom with bath and shower
The first-floor living area opens out on to the garden, where a jacuzzi awaits those who need to soak away the day’s adventures in the Chamonix mountains.
In summer the setting sun stays till late in the garden where guests can enjoy the BBQ and sun loungers as Mont Blanc turns first orange then pink.
The Grand Montets lift is only a 5 minute walk away and takes you to some of the finest skiing in France. Chamonix valley's FREE bus service stops just opposite the chalet giving you access to the rest of the valley’s villages and lift systems.
The centre of Argentière village is an easy 10-minute walk. Here you will find bars, restaurants and shops.
Guests have use of the entire chalet and its grounds and jacuzzi.
Interaction with guests
We consider your privacy to be of the utmost importance and so you will only see us if you ask us to drop by.

Chalet Smart is a professionally run holiday chalet in the Chamonix valley at the foot of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain.
Guests have full and exclusive use of the chalet and its grounds and jacuzzi.
With its well manicured lawn with interrupted views up on to the summit of Mont Blanc, this is a quiet and private mountain paradise that is adored by all who stay here.
However, there are neighbouring chalets close enough to the property that we ask guests to respect this quiet neighbourhood and those that live in it and not use the jacuzzi and gardens late at night so as to not disturb others.
We are Mont Blanc Retreats, a rental agency specialising in high quality apartments and chalets in the ski resorts of the Chamonix valley and St Gervais.
Get in touch with Andrea or Bob if you need a great place to stay in the Mont Blanc area. We have everything from small apartments like Gaillands North to big luxury chalets like Flocon de Neige
