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.
An open plan kitchen lounge area is fitted around a large open fireplace, which provides a warm, intimate atmosphere for the guests. 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. There is an excellent choice of the latest DVDs and Music CDs. This area leads onto the external balcony, which boasts some of the most amazing views of the Mont Blanc Massif from anywhere in Chamonix.
The open plan kitchen has all modern facilities including state of the art oven and hob together with the top of the range dishwasher. 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.
The chalet sleeps up to 11 people in 2 double bedrooms and 2 double/twin bedrooms, one of which has an additional futon bed, sleeping maximum 3. There is a Sofa Bed for 2 further people in the living room.
The Master Bedroom has an en suite bath and shower facility together with double washbasins and is finished in traditional style. This room incorporates a kingsize bed and has a seating area with a Futon chair which of course can turn into a bed thus accommodates a further person. The room has access to the lower balcony with stunning views of the Mont Blanc Mountain and direct entry into the hot tub area.

The lower floor incorporates a cedar sauna, which comfortably will seat 6 people and has a mega 8KW sauna heater.
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.
