Does the idea of a classic Alpine chalet that backs up to a charming forest and which is within sight of two mountain streams appeal to you? Now imagine that this chalet is just a short walk to a delightful 18th century village in the French Alps, and you have a good idea of what to expect from the lovely Chalet Retreat. Situated in Argentiere in the Chamonix Valley, it provides a fabulous base for the ultimate ski holiday at Grand Montels resort, but is also appealing year round.

The four-bedroom chalet has been designed with an emphasis on rustic settings. Not only does your stay include the attentive services of a professional chef, but it also offers a long list of premium amenities as well. An outdoor hot tub adjacent to one of the two mountain streams, balconies, and a self-contained studio suite make it ideal for large groups of very discerning travelers.

The ground floor of this stylish chalet features an oversized and rustic lounge gathered around the enormous fireplace. Nearby is the spacious dining area adjacent to the fully-equipped modern kitchen. It is steps to the terrace and hot tub, and the studio suite is on this level too.

The first floor features the four spacious bedroom suites. Two open directly to the gorgeous balcony. The master suite features a large and luxurious bath with garden tub and separate dressing room. Nearby, a dual twin suite has a private bath and the two remaining suites share a full bath.

With its iconic, lodge-like décor that includes a corner, stone fireplace, hefty beams, and stone floors, the Chalet Retreat is a classic choice for ski enthusiasts. Just a short distance to town, it is the perfect choice for those who want to explore an authentic Alpine village experience at any time of year.
