A wonderfully secluded self catered high mountain chalet at the bottom of the piste, with outdoor hot tub and large fireplace. La Glisse integrates beautifully into the surrounding mountains with high ceilings and large windows, leaving you floating above the clouds well after your return. La Glisse is a tranquil refuge with 4 bedrooms for up to 8 people to explore the many ski options around Chamonix, or the summer hiking trails starting from the front door, while soaking up the high alpine experience, and always with amazing views.

La Glisse is a farmhouse style chalet, consisting of a large open plan central area with an alluring fireplace and big west facing windows, which capture the outstanding valley and mountain views while soaking the open areas in afternoon sunshine. This refuge is a converted restaurant at the bottom of the piste with high ceilings, irregular angles and unconventional spaces, emphasizing comfort and warmth, rather than luxury. An eclectic mix of traditional and exotic furnishings have been creatively blended to give a relaxed feel. The chalet is primarily on one level with the bedrooms and bathrooms leading off from the double volume living area. There are two double bedrooms (one quite small), a family room (double bed plus two singles) and a mezzanine with a double bed.

After a hard day on the slopes, and a long soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, the favoured option is usually to relax, with a drink or two, in front of the large roaring log fire, while watching snowflakes floating down and laughing about the day's events. There is a selection of books and board games, a CD player and ADSL WiFi access. If Sky Sports, DVD's and video games are a necessary part of your holiday mix, this is not the chalet for you.

However for those evenings when you would like a change of scenery, Argentière and Chamonix are packed with vibrant restaurants, bars and nightclubs which add to the fun of being in the extreme sports capital of Europe.

La Glisse is on the edge of Le Tour village, at the top of the Chamonix Valley. Le Tour (altitude 1,462m) is a tiny typical Haute Savoie village dominated by Le Tour glacier, which seems to hang over the village. The village is sought after by those in search of an authentic French alpine experience where the beauty and charm has not changed for centuries and is unaffected by the presence of a major ski station in its backyard.

The chalet backs onto the nursery and intermediate slopes, while higher up the mountain are some of the best back country rides in Chamonix . It is a 30m walk to the beginner lifts and another 100m across the piste to the main gondola. This is one of the few ski-to-your-door chalets in the whole of the Chamonix valley.

About Argentiere

Chamonix offers an unparalleled mix of skiing terrain, from beginner and great intermediate skiing and boarding on easy slopes to challenging black runs and extreme off piste, and always with incredible vistas. With numerous different ski area there is something for everyone in Chamonix.

Le Tour / Domaine du Balme:
A vast domain with lots of sun and good snow cover, offering skiing for all levels. Le Tour is on the Swiss border with scenic tree runs and largely undiscovered off piste bowls on the forested Swiss side, which avoid queues on even the busiest of days. The wide beginner and intermediate west facing slopes directly behind the chalet are perfect for learning new skills or relaxed afternoon cruising. Le Tour is one of the highest snowfall sites in France.

Argentière / Les Grands Montets:
Characterised by large bowls and long runs, this area offers intermediate and advanced levels challenging and scenic descents with up to 2,100m vertical drop. As it is high and north facing, there is usually snow from November through till May . From the summit of Les Grands Montets (3,345m), the glacier runs offer skiers and boarders some of the most spectacular on and off-piste runs in the world.

La Flégère:
This area is mostly for beginner and intermediate levels with some exciting off-piste routes in sunny "couloirs" (gullies). Outstanding views of the magnificent "Mer de Glace" ( Sea of Ice ) as well as the Mont Blanc chain.

Le Brévant:
Located on the sunny side of the mountain directly opposite Mont Blanc, the highest in Europe . Suited to all levels of ability with good off-piste skiing routes and fabulous views. Brévant and Flégère are linked together (and it is usually quicker to go up the gondolas at Brévant and ski across than to queue for the cable car at Flégère).

Aiguille du Midi:
One of the highest cable cars in Europe taking you to 3,800m and a spectacular view of the Alps. This is the beginning of the famous "Vallée Blanche" a 20km day trip. Intermediate skiers and boarders can take the classic route, while for advanced levels there are more challenging variations and many off-piste itineraries.

Other Areas Nearby:

Les Houches: 10 minutes past Chamonix , this is a good area for beginner to intermediate levels with wide carving runs and great family restaurants on the piste. Most suited to days when other areas are covered in high cloud, as Les Houches is at lower altitudes with long tree runs to aid visability.

Courmayeur: On the other side of Mont Blanc and a 20 minutes drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel, this classic Italian resort is a fun day trip to experience skiing "the Italian way" with 20 restaurants to choose from.

Megève/St Gervais: 40 minutes drive from Chamonix , Megève is a charming village and an ideal day trip to explore the many intermediate slopes. The lower altitude slopes of Megève have a different microclimate to Chamonix and may be an alternative when weather conditions make Chamonix difficult. It is best to access it the ski area from the St Gervais section with the gondola parking on the road just after the St Gervais village on the road to Megeve (30 minutes from Chamonix).

Verbier If the above choices are still not enough, Verbier in Switzerland is 45 minutes drive away from Le Tour.
