Maison D’Hiver – a chalet without compromise

Les Gets is buzzing, beautiful and so accessible, but despite all the available accommodation on offer it can still be difficult to find a chalet to evoke that truly nostalgic ‘Heidi in the mountains’ feel with views that you will remember for ever when you go back home, with sumptuous interiors that you could find in the pages of all the best chalet magazines! The wood is old, the main staircase made by hand, and wherever you look there are artisan touches and a feeling of quality which gives the space a special feel.

Maison D’Hiver sleeps 12 and includes a personal concierge who will be in touch with a menu of services to create your perfect holiday before your arrival. The chalet is perfectly set up to accommodate up to two families each with their own private floor for sleeping. Entertainment for guests includes a hot tub, cinema/x box room, table tennis table and table football. On arrival all beds will be made up with high quality pure linen bedding and fluffy towels.

Maison D’Hiver is basked in sun from dawn until dusk in a truly desirable corner of Les Gets with the most decadent chalets. In the evening the lighting in the chalet is very ambient and sets a very relaxing scene.

It is a short drive to the slopes but it is well worth it with parking right by the slopes and no need to walk in ski boots. If you are determined to put your car away for the week then you can just take the complementary bus to the slopes and if the snow conditions are right you can ski back to the chalet.

This is not a chalet that has been built for the rental market, it is very much a home that has been created for our family for the long term to enjoy and rent to the right people when we are not using it. I hope we can tempt you to give it a try.

Your house is simply stunning

Just a quick note to say that we had an amazing time. Your house is simply stunning, with so many nice places to be at any time of day and perfect to sit outside for long dinners watching the sun go down! If we can make it work we will be back next year.

Everything was so comfortable we can’t wait to book again!

We are in our car…driving from Maison D’Hiver to our home near Grasse/Cannes. We have had such a wonderful week in your stunning home.

We were extremely comfortable, felt very much at home and very much appreciated the generosity that Maison D’Hiver offers.

We loved all the decor and very much appreciated the very well thought out touches!

Everything was so comfortable we can’t wait to book again!

Petr is a great chalet manager and was very helpful with any little question we had! He made our check out very calm and relaxing! We didn’t want to leave!

We had Tamsin a local Chef come and cook for us on Friday night, she was great fun and served us a fabulous 4 course feast!

I just wanted to drop you a personal note to express our sincere thanks for a wonderful week and we very much hope it won’t be our only visit to Maison D’Hiver!

wonderfully comfortable, well-designed ski chalet

We had a wonderfully relaxing and luxurious week . The house is very comfortable with great beds, linen and bathrooms. The design and flow of the house is very thought-through with spaces to be together, but also for kids to have fun: movie room, jacuzi and fussball/football table etc.
Lots of charm in spite of having all the mod cons.
The views are beautiful. Everything is run very professionally and smoothly. We would go back in a flash. We loved it .

Just stunning

How to pen a review about the most perfect property? Words like magical, stunning, fabulous, majestic come to mind but don’t do it justice – perfect is just that. We have stayed at several high-end chalets through companies like Scott Dunn but this place was head an shoulders above all of them. The clear attention to detail and level of comfort was second to none. This was not so much a ski chalet but a winter home (perhaps the clue was in the name) with nothing to want for. An abiding memory was sitting in the large hot tub before dawn as a vast tract of starlit sky enlightened itself moment by moment as the light of dawn displaced the dark and a perfect day’s skiing beckoned. Sitting there at the end of day was equally magical as the sun disappeared down the valley. The chalet sits on the side of the hill and affords glorious views. This means that a car is needed but an integral garage means that any vehicle is kept warm overnight and the car park at the bottom of the Perriere chair is only 5 minutes away at the bottom of the hill and, being used to skiing in North America, this was no big deal – and worth it for the stunning views. Will I return? In an instant – but even if I don’t, this trip will live long in the memory, if not indefinitely.

Beautiful chalet in a stunning setting

We went out after Christmas with our slightly older kids (9 & 16). The chalet is gorgeous and there’s lots of space for kids and adults.
At the property – there’s a games room for kids and table football. From a mum’s perspective there are super-practical heated cupboards for all the wet boots, gloves, coats etc. There are shutters on every room so it’s easy to get pitch black for sleeping babies/kids. The kitchen has two ovens and two dishwashers which is great.
The location – the chalet is half way up a mountain so make sure you have snow chains that fit the vehicle (Hertz rentals gave us ones that were too small and we had a LOT of snow). You don’t have to drive if you don’t want to as there’s a 10 min walk to catch a bus that takes you right into the centre of Les Gets. It’s on a loop so is very frequent.
The town – Les Gets has loads of ski shops and places to eat.
My advice – take slippers and dressing gowns so you can get out to the amazing hot tub – perfect after a day out.
Beautiful scenery.
Loved it!

Maison D’hiver is truly like something out of James Bond movie…

Cannot speak highly enough of this ski lodge.
Maison D’Hiver is truly like something out of James Bond movie as soon as you enter this ski lodge you know you are in the lap of luxury. Every room has been well thought out and perfectly reflects its environment. Loved the fur wall in one of the bedrooms. It is very clean and well maintained and the owners provided excellent customer service as well as giving us great restaurant tips. The lodge is a short drive away from the pistes and the main village in Les Gets which has a fabulous array of shops and boutiques. We found it very easy to hire ski equipment in the village. When we returned back to the lodge after a day of skiing it was a real treat to sink into the outside Jacuzzi and just enjoy the fabulous views. Will definitely be recommending this property to friends and family. Review Submitted: 12 Jan 2018 | Stayed: December 2017

Paradise in the Alps

Spent six days staying in unabashed luxury. Absolute perfection it appears that everything has been thought of. The views from the chalet and the sunsets are sensational. A beautiful experience we can’t wait to go back there next June.

Jacqui and Terry - Devon

Breathtaking chalet with stunning views

A beautifully recently renovated chalet that combines serious style and comfort. Spacious but cosy in a peaceful location up in the hills with stunning views over Les Gets valley. I would certainly recommend this chalet to everyone.
Felicity Reeve - Warwickshire

Exceptional Chalet with exhilarating views

I had a long weekend at Maison D’Hiver and also went at half term. We were lucky enough to arrive when the much awaited snow had arrived! Firstly, the aspect of the chalet is spectacular with the most stunning views both from inside and and on the balconies. Picture-perfect snowy mountains and snow covered trees! Perfect for sitting in the hot tub with a glass of something nice after a long day skiing (and disco ball overhead when it’s dark!). It’s not far to drive from the centre of Les Gets although snow tyres are essential in proper snowy weather. Having said that the road had been very well cleared when we were there. I was initially worried about not being in the centre but actually the space, and peace and quiet, you get from being slightly out is lovely and it’s a really quick drive to Les Gets with loads of parking. I would love to come back in the summer!
Inside the decor is gorgeous – sumptuous, cozy and rustically luxurious. It’s just a lovely feel, and feels a real homely sanctuary. The sofa by the fire fits plenty of bottoms and is ideal for snuggling up and reading or chatting. One evening we had 10 children for supper and despite the slight chaos the table more than catered for everybody, and they all loved crashing in the kids room to watch a film and play table football on the lower floor. The kitchen fees like it’s been there for years, made of natural wood, but with all teh mod cons.
The bedrooms are real a treat to be in. The main bedroom on the top floor has a great big bed, cozy and with a beautiful Art Deco inspired bathroom. The kids loved the bunks, a bit like a hideaway. And all the other bedrooms were so cozy I can imagine many people fancying a day off skiing just to stay in them!
As an area there is access to a huge skiing area. I got the bus to and back from Morzine a couple of times, so if snow is sparse in Les Gets being lower down it’s very easy to drive or get the bus to the super Morzine and have the Avoriaz area and Swiss side to ski.
To sum up, a beautifully stylish and exceptionally cozy place that you can’t wait to get back to after being out for the day!

Luxury in the Alps!

We had an amazing week staying here. It was truly stunning. The chalet was finished to a very high standard with loads of home comforts! Plenty of room for 2 families to stay without being on top of each other. Beautiful views from the balconies and hot tub. Located a short walk away from a bus stop where you can get a free bus straight to the ski lifts. My family would highly recommend staying here. Les Gets is beautiful winter or summer time. Can’t wait to go back and stay in Maison d’ Hiver again.
Suzanne Heath - Devon

5 star luxury

A really beautiful, luxurious yet comfortable home with all mod cons easily accessed by car. Great views of the valley and a real treat to be able to relax in the hot tub or chill out on the balcony with apres ski drinks. I can’t wait to stay there again!

…one of the best family trips we have ever taken

This summer we decided to take our first non-beach family holiday. There was slight trepidation from all quarters of our family, we were giving up the scorching hot temperatures, private pool and sea views! Well fear not family this turned out to be one of the best family trips we have ever taken.

Masion D’Hiver is perched perfectly giving 180 degree views up and down the valley containing the three ski resorts of Porte du Soleil, also from its highest point you get a c100km view across the French Alps with the snow-capped glacier of Mont Blanc framing the horizon. Without doubt the property has the best views of any destination we have stayed in, I became addicted to cooking on the industrial sized BBQ in the garden, looking down the valley.

I for one love the Alps in winter, but there really is something magical about the Alps in summer and Maison D’Hhiver is perfectly placed to take advantage of it all. Whether its crystal clear water lakes to swim in, go ape style tree climbing, road or downhill biking (only if your bike fit, a stage of Le Tour finishes here!) or following the various levels of difficulty walks, it’s all here. There is something for everyone right on the door step of Masion D’Hiver.

Then there is inside! Wow Mrs Miles revelled in the pure luxury of the property, the two junior Miles’ hit the ‘den’ to cosy up and increase their addiction to the massive screen entertainment. Whilst I took in those views from the vast range of vantage points.

Each room makes the occupants feel like they are living somewhere special, there are so many small beautiful finishing touches, this makes you feel you are somewhere homely and not in a ‘rental’. My personal favourite design point is the lighting, when the sun goes down you get the chance to set the numerous lighting configurations to the mood you are looking for. It’s like getting a big hug off the lights!!

chic fabulous chalet

Beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable this is a real dream chalet. Immaculately kept, such wonderful beds, open fire, great dining area, hot tub, balconies with amazing views. Could not fault this and would definitely book again.

 

Camilla Peake - Sezincote

Dream alpine retreat, both in style, look and feel

So, you can see from the photos that the place is stunning. What you can’t see is the feel of the place. It feels like perfection. Restorative, fun, stylishly quirky.

 

Susannah Madge - Brighton

Stylish, comfortable, well-equipped, luxury chalet

Our family so enjoyed our stay at Maison d’Hiver… The house is immaculate – warm, spacious and comfortable with all of the consideration and special touches you would expect from such stylish owners! The situation is great, with wonderful views from the balcony and terrace (especially from the hot tub!), and access to town very easy by car or a short walk downhill to the bus stop for the free shuttle bus that circuits around Les Gets.
We loved cooking and entertaining in the large kitchen and also the TWO dishwashers! We would absolutely stay again and have been recommending to friends. We can’t wait to return!

Polly Gregory - London

Quite simply my favourite place in the Alps!

My kids and I have stayed at Maison D’Hiver on a few occasions. It is a beautifully furnished and absolutely stunning chalet. There is loads of room for everyone to have their own space whilst retaining a warmth and charm that makes it feel cosy and warm. The views from the balcony and hot tub are outstanding, and you can just catch the tip of Mont Blanc on a clear day. If you are bored of that there is always the table football to distract you!

Its location in Les Gets gives great access to the local slopes, and is in a quieter area of the village so you benefit from the tranquillity of the mountains whilst being a short walk/drive from the bars and shops. The Les Get ski area is great for all abilities, and it is easy to access Morzine and the wider Portes du Soleil. Better still there are some wonderful smaller ski areas just a short drive away that are definitely worth exploring.

All in all you will not fail to be relaxed, rested and happy in high quality surroundings. Quite simply my favourite place in the Alps!

N.Walrond - Bristol

Exquisitely comfortable!  Luxuriously practical! 

Maison d’Hiver is the perfect chalet for a family skiing holiday.  

We had a wonderful stay in April 2017.  Highlights of the chalet for us include the many balconies and terraces to enjoy the stunning mountain views, not to mention the hot tub with groovy disco ball overhead;  super comfy beds for log like sleep and spacious bathrooms with power showers and deep baths; the subtle lighting throughout; the big dining table to seat a small army….the list could go on. The kids loved the table football and ginormous TV!

Immaculate attention to detail in the design and furnishing of this chalet has created a real one off mountain retreat, ideal for winter or summer holidays; we can’t wait to go back next year!

The Property

The Chalet

The five en-suite bedrooms and the bunk den sleep 12 comfortably. Two of the en-suite rooms can be set up with 2 single beds or a king size bed, offering flexibility. Have a look at our gallery to get a better view of the chalet. The accommodation is split over the top and bottom floors with the living area on the middle floor so it is perfect for two families on holiday together or just those who wish for a good degree of privacy. Entertainment for guests includes a hot tub, cinema/x box room, table tennis table and table football.

Maison D’Hiver comes with a concierge service offering good holiday ideas such as igloo building and cocktail making classes at the chalet. Arrangements can be made for lift passes to be at the chalet on arrival, a welcome basket of food or larger food deliveries to be unpacked and ready for your arrival.Your concierge can book activities and restaurants, organise daily housekeeping, private ski or mountain biking lessons, babysitters / nannies, equipment hire, massages…

On the lower ground floor there are three en-suite bedrooms with views and a terrace with a hot tub accessed from two of the bedrooms. The front door opens onto the middle floor which has a large open plan living and dining area for 12 with log burner; kitchen including a breakfast bar; a separate cinema room with an X-box (a child magnet!); access to the garden and two balconies with further seating for relaxing and dining and further views. The upper floor consists of 2 en-suite bedrooms (including one extremely large bedroom with views) and a very cosy bunk den (or coin de montagne to sleep two).

In addition to a selection of board games there is table football in the boot room (which keeps everyone entertained whilst getting ready for skiing) and a table tennis table. There are sledges and shovels on hand for the most important tasks of building snowmen, igloos and sledge runs in the garden! On a practical note the kitchen has two dishwashers and two Miele ovens. Off the kitchen is a larder / laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and drying rack. There are heated cupboards for drying damp clothes and keeping items warm on both the lower ground and ground levels.

Getting around Les Gets

Maison D’Hiver is a short drive to the slopes and for complete convenience you can park either in the underground car park at the Chavanne ski station or at Les Perriers free open air ski station car park, so you don’t have to do any walking in ski boots! If you are determined to put your car away for the week then you can just take the complementary bus to the slopes and if the snow conditions are right you can ski back to the chalet. The chalet is a mile up the first mountain road you reach when you arrive in Les Gets and 5-7 minutes drive into the village.

Once in the village a little train drives around between the two sides of the mountain offering free rides. There is also a convenient night bus service that operates in Les Gets and taxi services. More detailed information and everything you may wish to know can be found on the Les Gets Office du Tourisme website or in person at the office in the centre of the village.

Catering

The chalet is offered as self catered however you can have as much catering as you like! Please discuss your preferences with the Maison D’Hiver Concierge and she will organise everything from Breakfast to Evening dining in or out! We don’t have live in staff at the chalet but Les Gets offers a strong selection of catering options from pre-prepared food delivered to your door; private chefs cooking your meals on selected nights and restaurants booked for you. It is not uncommon to enjoy lazy lunches on the slopes or in town, and then hunker down in the evenings for simple suppers. The mixture of the odd night out in town for fine dining and a few delivered home cooked meals during the week can be a good blend.

To give you an idea ‘Chalet Kitchen’ is one of our options. They offer a weekly menu and their meals are cooked and delivered daily. Click here to access their website – www.chaletkitchen.com. There are two supermarkets in Les Gets plus a large number of patisseries, two butchers, lots of cheese and local produce shops and a weekly market. There are also endless restaurants in the village and on the mountains!





Location

Les Gets

Les Gets is located just over an hour from Geneva and is a very accessible ski resort. This 12th century farming village has developed into a stylish alpine destination that once discovered, people seem to return to repeatedly.


The winter skiing suits all abilities and covers a vast area incorporating Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz and the whole of the Porte de Soleil.

Les Gets it is a beautiful village with great shopping, a huge range of mountains for skiing, mountain biking, walking and enjoying rural France with style in both summer and winter. There is always a weekly agenda of wide ranging seasonal activities to complement the main sports, from making chocolate, visiting Father Christmas in the woods, firework displays, swimming in the lakes, musical concerts, visiting the goat village, pottery workshops, local markets, white water rafting, swinging from the trees and so the list goes on….

If downhill skiing isn’t for you, then you can choose from a wide array of other activities including snow shoeing, parapenting, cross country skiing, ice skating, swimming, climbing, shopping and dining as well as the extensive entertainment programme put on every winter by the Office du Tourisme.

In summer you are surrounded by beautiful wild flower meadows and the sound of cow bells. Some of the best mountain bikers in the world will be charging down their dedicated slopes but walkers are equally attracted to Les Gets in the summer following the walking trails with a picnic or enjoying leisurely lunches in the many local restaurants with spectacular views.

There are beautiful lakes to swim, paddle board, row or fish; plus swimming pools and waterfalls to cool off in the heat. Les Gets attracts many families as it is an easy place to entertain children with the weekly changing programme of entertainment.
