Chalet Chocolat is a beautiful family home facing the slopes, conveniently located just above the pretty village of Verchaix and to Samoens’ restaurants, bars and shops. The chocolate box exterior belies its smart, contemporary interior. Snugly wrapped in gorgeous, warm timber in harmony with local tradition, the interior is simple yet sophisticated.
The prime focus is the reception room with a large granite fireplace and panoramic views from all windows. The space is thoughtfully divided into areas for dining, reading and relaxing, with a full entertainment system. The well-equipped chalet kitchen is behind an island counter allowing the cook to feel connected with the rest of the group.
The five bedrooms are each uniquely decorated with Harris tweed, faux fur and raw silk throws. The charming double bunk room, with adult size beds, is ideal for young people and there is easy access to the wall mounted widescreen TV and games console in the games room next door.
Our attention throughout is on comfort. Sink into handmade, buffalo leather sofas and sumptuous beds with goose down bedding and satin-crisp Egyptian cotton sheets. If that’s not relaxing enough, soothe weary muscles in the large hot tub on the terrace with sensational views over the valley and the mountains beyond.
