Rarity: a ski in, ski out chalet in Chamonix valley
There are just three Chamonix catered chalets that are truly ski in, ski out chalets in Chamonix Valley.
That means out of the hundred-or-so chalets here, we are envied by all for our special location.
We are situated perfectly, right on one of the main blue pistes in Les Houches - the family end of Chamonix valley - which means we are ideal for beginners and intermediate skiers, as well as mixed ability groups. Simply step into your skis, or strap on your snowboard, and you are ready to ski straight off the property and onto the piste.
At the end of the day, you simply ski straight back into the chalet.
Our Philosophy? Excellent service!
Lots of other ski companies call it a "dedicated concierge service"...
However, at Maison Jaune, we just think of it as taking care of you!
- We can pre-book your ski hire at preferential rates to speed you through the process of getting kitted up - faster, less queuing
- We can arrange private ski lessons or guiding for you - we work with the best instructors so you get the best tuition!
- We can give you recommendations and book restaurants for you - No struggling with schoolboy French on the phone
- We can arrange massages, childcare, paragliding flights, husky dog sledding - anything Chamonix has to offer that will make your holiday even more special
Ease those aching limbs in the hot tub
After your long hard day's skiing, you will probably find there nothing is better than being able to relax your tired muscles sipping a chilled beer, or a glass of sparkling Champagne, in our jacuzzi hot tub. With the snow all around, you are enveloped by the bubbling hot water, steam rising like a mist in the air, laughing with friends, whilst the sunset turns the amazing snow-capped mountains all around you a rich shade of burgundy.
Are you musical?
If so, then you'll love this....
For anyone in your group who is musical, we have a chalet piano, chalet guitar, didgeridoo and tambourine you can use (and lots of sheet music).
Fantastic chalet facilities
If you are tired, or perhaps if the weather isn't so great, you can chill out in front of the roaring log fire on the sofa to watch one of over 1,500 movies from our multimedia entertainment system with surround sound on our large 42" plasma screen, or listen to some great music : plug your iPod in, or alternatively, select from our range of over 15,000 mp3s.
You can surf the internet - using either the guest computer, or via the Wi-Fi installed in the chalet.
You can enjoy playing on our new Nintendo Wii - with WiiFit, 2 remotes, nunchuks and a selection of games.
Alternatively, you could simply curl up on the sofa by the fire with one of the hundreds of books available for you to enjoy in the lounge.
Chamonix Chalet Catered? or Self Catered?
In the Winter, for peak weeks such as Christmas, New Year, February half-term and Easter, you can hire the chalet catered - where you can enjoy superb four-course restaurant-quality meals from the comfort of the chalet - with great free-flowing wine.
Other weeks, we offer the entire chalet self-catered.
