Imagine......the perfect ski and summer retreat in a perfectly stunning setting - Chalet La Cachette is a privately owned, luxuriously appointed ski and summer chalet nestling in a select spot on the south side of the spectacular Chamonix valley, in a Village of Coupeau 5 minutes from Les Houches.

Clients return to Chalet La Cachette year after year and enjoy everything on offer in the Chamonix area. The chalet boasts a fabulous patio hot tub with the most magnificent views in Chamonix of the Aiguille Du Midi & Mont Blanc Massif to soak your aching muscles after a day on the slopes as well as a wonderful cedar sauna. There are an abundance of forest walks year-round right from the door. It offers an ideal location during both the Winter and the Summer seasons for Chamonix accommodation.

A beautiful leather upholstered suite comfortably accommodates 8 people and creates a superb atmosphere with the benefits of a new cinema system including a plasma screen and DVD system with surround sound.

This area leads onto the external balcony, which boasts some of the most amazing views of the Mont Blanc Massif from anywhere in Chamonix.

This leads to the dining area where we have a beautiful handmade traditional French table which comfortably seats 8 people and will extend to accommodate a further 4 so 12 in total. The close proximity of the kitchen to the dining area creates an excellent atmosphere and unique dining experience.

The kitchen is ideally equipped for self-catering with an oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a N'espresso Machine with complimentary capsules, a steamer, and a toaster. Next to the kitchen is the dining area that comfortably seats 8 people. The lounge/kitchen area also has under floor heating.

Other facilities

Whilst the chalet is marketed as an un-catered chalet many people also do take it catered. Our philosophy is a little different and when people do want catering we bring in a chef for the week to carry out breakfast and evening meals. This facility is not like any normal chalet dining, and offers a Gourmet menu together with the most fabulous cuisine. This experience can be taken either on a weekly basis or if preferred just for a couple of days. In addition to this we do offer a range of excellent quality French Wines, which can be purchased from us at the Chalet. You will have a chance to sample some of these wines on a free of charge basis on your arrival.

We can arrange a transfer from Geneva on your behalf with a local specialist company, which has given us an excellent service over the years. We also have reliable ski guides and instructors, which we use year after year. For further information on any of these services please contact us and we can give you the individual information.


There is ample parking opposite the chalet.

About Les Houches

The village of Les Houches offers a traditional Savoyard atmosphere very different to Chamonix. From Les Houches village there are stunning walks and mountain bike areas on both the north side and south side of Coupeau which probably has the best views of the Mont Blanc Massif. It is at Coupeau where one of our luxury chalets La Cachette is situated.

The World Cup Ski Circuit venue of Les Houches, which is one of the ski areas that make up the resorts of the Chamonix Valley. Under the fabulous panorama of the Mont-Blanc. Les Houches has 18 lifts and offers ideal ski-ing for intermediates, beginners and mixed ability groups. The pistes are mainly tree-lined which means you can ski here even if the weather closes in. A new modern lift system has been opened and this together with 86 snow cannons makes Les Houches an excellent location.

The Chalet is 10 mins drive from Chamonix which is in the Haute-Savoie region of France less than an hour from Geneva and dominated by Western Europe's highest peak, Mont Blanc. It is a cosmopolitan town with a wide international mix, sporting a real 'soul' and boasting 15,000 year-round residents. People have been coming here for well over a century. It is a true mountain mecca, with a huge summer climbing/walking clientele, as well as the winter skiers and boarders.

From the Chalet, you have access by car to La Flégère, Aiguille Du Midi, Les Grands Montets, Le Brevent and Les Houches ski resorts - all with good piste skiing and novice facilities. You also have access by car to Merlet Wild-Life Park, Mont-Blanc Forest, Chamonix Valley hiking and lakes, Chamonix Leisure Park, Paragliding Chamonix Valley and Mont-Blanc during the summer. Restaurant facilities are excellent at the Chalet location and lift passes can be purchased locally.

Venturing out to Chamonix also offers unparalleled mix of skiing terrain, from beginner, great intermediate skiing on easy slopes to extreme off piste skiing and always with incredible vistas. This is especially true to the holder of a Mont Blanc Valley Pass. This pass opens up the possibilities of the whole of the Mont Blanc Valley Region. From the Italian Ski team's practice site, Megeve, to the extreme skiing capital of Argentiere, all is accessible on a single pass. Chamonix is a real mountain town with brilliant apres nightlife - café culture, elegant bars, restaurants, clubs and wild, wild Discos.
