Whether you’re looking for your very own slice of snow-topped paradise, or in the market for a remarkable investment, you’ve clicked on the right article. Chalet Grangettes, located in the beautiful Les Gets resort in the Portes du Soleil, is currently being marketed by Knight Frank in London.
This seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom chalet – which offers stunning views across the valley every way you look – already boasts an acclaimed rental history with renowned clientele. One look at the video above and it’s easy to see why Chalet Grangettes was twice voted France’s Best Ski Chalet at the World Ski Awards.
The master bedroom can be found on the top floor of the chalet, complete with an en-suite bathroom and free-standing tub.
On a clear day, you’ll wake up to breathtaking views of Mont Blanc. By night, you can cross the top floor to a cosy bar area, and enjoy drinks on the adjacent balcony or in the overlook lounge. The balcony also includes a little novelty, but we’ll come to that later…
The chalet’s open plan living and dining area, situated on the first floor, also offers spectacular views of the mountains. There are fewer idyllic settings for a family dinner than this. You can almost hear the crackling of the roaring fire and tinkling of the ivories.
If ever there was an excuse to finally purchase that grand piano, this is it…
Two more bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms can be found on the first floor. Venture downstairs to the ground floor of the chalet to find three more large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, as well as the hall and kitchen.
Follow the ground floor corridor, past the boot room, store room and garage, and you’ll discover your very own, luxurious spa area. A glass sauna offers panoramic views of the valley around you, and a conversation pit is ripe for exactly that (accompanied by a bottle of Perrier-Jouët, of course).
Of course, there’s more to this chalet than the grand spaces and glass saunas within its walls. Step outside of the spa area and you’ll be able to indulge in plenty of stargazing from the hot tub and heated infinity pool.
Come in from the cold and there’s even more joy to be had on the lower ground floor of the chalet. As well as space for a seventh bedroom, this floor boasts a two-tier cinema room, a gymnasium, a wine cellar and a snooker room with a vaulted ceiling.
Now we’d like you to picture a scenario. You and your guests are enjoying a little apres-ski in the top floor bar area, and you’ve just finished your last bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Or have you?
“Oh, but the wine cellar is all the way on the ground floor…” you sigh, legs tired from a day’s skiing. If only there was a faster way to get there…
And now comes the surprise. Step outside onto your top floor balcony and you’ll find a novel slide – yes, a slide – which connects the bar area on the top floor to the wine cave.
As for getting back up to the bar, well, that’s your decision. If you decide to stop off at the infinity pool on your way back up, we’re not saying anything…
