Sit back in your hot tub with a glass of champagne, looking up at the Mont Blanc mountain range and feel totally immersed in the relaxing surroundings of your ski chalet.
Chalet Emeraude offers space, warmth and a homely ambience alongside modern comforts and wonderful hospitality. Sleeping 16-24 guests in the winter months, across nine bedrooms offering flexible sleeping options, gather together in a welcoming living space with its wooden sofas, cosy fireplace, Sky
TV as well as DVDs, a music system, books and board games. Help yourself to tea and coffee by the drinks machine and make the most of the well-stocked honesty bar. With high ceilings, artwork on the wall and other pretty touches across the lounge and dining area, there’s a real sense of rustic elegance
across this beautiful home.
The staff here take great pride in the high level of hospitality, not just the chef who prepares high-quality three-course evening meals but also the friendly team who service the chalet most mornings and can assist with ski-equipment hire, delivery and fitting, ski passes and anything else you may require.
The cuisine is second to none – you will be greeted with a champagne reception when you first arrive and every afternoon, on your return from the slopes, delicious cakes, nibbles and hot drinks are served by the roaring fire. Breakfast is prepared daily – expect pastries, warm bread, fruit and yoghurt as
well as hot items most days. The evening meal is a special affair, often by candlelight with gastronomic delights of a restaurant standard, accompanied by classic French or Italian wines chosen perfectly to complement the food.
Six mornings a week an 8-seater mini-bus will pick you up and whisk some of you away to your chosen skiing area in the Chamonix Valley, bringing you back late afternoon. Whether you feel like a day skiing the slopes of Le Brévent, challenging yourself off-piste around Aiguille du Midi or family time at one of the snow parks of Les Houches, there is skiing, snow-boarding and other activities for all ages and abilities. There are also shuttle buses departing from the bus stop just 100m away taking you to various parts of the valley.
It also takes just five to ten minutes by car or bus to reach Chamonix itself with its bustling atmosphere and incredible Mont Blanc views. Enjoy lunch in one of the excellent restaurants or take advantage of the ‘apres-ski’ scene after your evening meal (most days the staff can drop you off in Chamonix before 10pm).
So whether spending your time skiing, exploring Chamonix or just enjoying the hot tub, sauna and warm hospitality of this lovely home, Chalet Emeraude offers something for everyone surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Mont Blanc massif.
