Chalet Big Bear, and owner managed property, is a wonderful 5 bedroom chalet, enjoying incredible views of Mont Blanc, the Aravis and the Chaine des Fiz.

Renovated during 2016 by local artisans, the chalet has been cleverly designed to make it the perfect family accommodation. You'll appreciate the thoughtful way the chalet has been laid out, such as accessing the chalet via an entrance that doubles as a ski and boot room, and the wrap around lounge area which enables the children to watch DVDs in their own space whilst the adults are relaxing just around the corner.

It's the views that blow you away. The entire ground floor of the chalet is given to the living area and huge windows and patio doors give you an outstanding outlook across the large private garden to the mountains beyond. It really does put a smile on your face every time you soak up the panorama. Many of the bedrooms benefit from these same vistas too.

With a very well fitted out kitchen the owners have taken care to think of everything a family could ask for; microwave, large range style cooker with double oven and 5 ring induction hob, a massive, double, drawer style fridge build into the units. It's all there.

All of the bedrooms are either on the floor above or below this living area, so are perfect for children or tired adults who don't want to be bothered by late evening conversations around the dining table. Upstairs is home to two twin bedrooms, a double with full ensuite bathroom with WC, and a family shower room with WC. The lower ground floor is where you'll find the other two double bedrooms (one with its own private terrace), a family shower room, separate WC and the laundry room. All of the bedrooms have ample storage and cupboards space.
