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!
