There’s something truly magical about a snow-covered alpine cabin and Chalet F’Net is about as enchanting as they come. If you’re looking for cosy quirky interiors and glorious mountain scenery close to Chamonix in the Rhone Alps in France, then you’ve come to the right place.
Warm, romantic, authentic and luxurious - Chalet F’Net is all of these things and more. Perched on the trail up to the Prarion Mountain, it enjoys breathtaking views over the village of St. Gervais and the beautiful Chaine D’Aravis mountains. The façade of the chalet has been restored with antique timbers and stonework to preserve its original 19th century look. And inside there are old world furs, stoves and bathtubs as well as abundant contemporary comforts. This is a delightful alpine bolthole.
Saint Gervais-les-Bains is an elegant resort in the French Alps, with 445km of pistes. Les Plancerts Ski Lift, part of Les Houches Ski Area, is just 350m from the property and a short drive will take you down to the town where you will find plenty of bars and restaurants to sate your apres-ski appetite. And if you want a break from skiing there are plenty of other activities on offer all year round, from canyoning and paragliding to nature walks and mini golf.
The chalet is a 15 minute drive from the A40 autoroute and just an hour from Geneva airport. During deep winter, snow chains are highly recommended for the journey from St Gervais to the car park below the chalet and the remaining 400m up and down the hill to reach the chalet must be carried out on foot or with the sledge. Your host can help you with luggage.
