Chalet Cachette is a cute and cosy two-bedroom ski chalet in the upper Chamonix valley on the edge of Argentière village that has been recently renovated in local wood to create a warm and inviting home-from-home feel.
Built over three floors, the chalet is entered on the ground floor. This floor contains the cozy lounge area with its log fire, UK and French TV, and comfortable sofa bed. A separate toilet serves this room and is very useful if it is used as a bedroom during your stay.
The middle floor is generally considered the main living area. It is open-plan in design with windows on all four sides of the room to allow lots of light in. Double doors lead out on to the sunny west-facing balcony where you can look up on to Mont Blanc or go out into the garden with its wooden deck and BBQ.
With its large table for six with comfortable chairs and the open-plan and well-equipped kitchen, this floor is generally where we find most guests spend their time.
This floor also contains the main bathroom which has a bath, shower and toilet.
The upper floor contains the two bedrooms.
Bedroom 1 is the larger room and can only be made up as a double bed. The bedroom is large enough to easily take a cot or a small mattress for a child if needed and has built in cupboards.
Bedroom 2 is slightly smaller and can be either a double or a twin room as required.
Chalet Cachette sits just 100m away from the main Chamonix to Argentiere road on the Petit Balcon Sud walking track, giving easy access to the network of paths that run around the valley.
In winter the Grand Montets ski station is a five minute flat walk and offers some of the finest skiing in France.
The Chamonix valley FREE bus service stops just opposite the chalet giving you access to the rest of the valley’s villages and lift systems.
The centre of the village of Argentière itself is one km away where several bars, restaurants and shops are found. With easy access to the mountains and village life, this is a perfect family holiday chalet.
