Covering a generous 280sqm of living space in the outskirts of beautiful Chamonix, Chalet Big Bear is one of the resort’s most spacious and exclusive chalets. From the outside, the chalet is your typical wood-clad alpine base, but inside the contemporary furnishings, thoughtful touches, and floor to ceiling glass windows ensure this luxury home away from home is anything but ordinary.

Upstairs, the main living spaces command the best views of all, and huge south-facing glass windows let you enjoy them from every angle. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area is bright and sociable, with plenty of room for everyone to gather over dinner at the large wooden table, or kick back and relax on the sofas with the fire roaring. Alternatively, for a cosier atmosphere, head into the TV room and curl up with a film or grab a book from the bookshelves.

On the ground floor, you’ll find a large boot room and adjacent sauna – perfect for soaking tired legs straight from the slopes. You can also access the spacious garden and deck with its sunken hot tub and stunning mountain views.

Throughout the chalet the décor is modelled on effortless alpine chic, with an abundance of exposed natural wood and stone, complemented by high-quality, stylish furniture and fresh flowers. There are five bedrooms in total, four spread across the ground floor and a large master bedroom which occupies the entire second floor.

Start your luxury ski holiday as you mean to go on with welcome Champagne on arrival at Chalet Big Bear.

During your holiday, your chalet hosts will serve breakfast of your choice every day, as well as afternoon tea and homemade cakes to give you a sugar boost when you get in from the slopes.

On five days a week, you’re in for a real treat with delicious four-course fine-dining dinners and a selection of great wines. Your personal chef is keen to make sure your dining experience here is something special, so should you have any particular family favourites or requests, just let them know and they will be more than happy to tailor and create menus specifically for your party’s requirements.

For those travelling with children, the chef will be happy to put together an early evening tea so that parents can enjoy a more relaxed meal later in the evening.

On staff days off, your chalet host will be happy to help you choose and book one of the lovely local restaurants in Argentière or Chamonix.

The large garden and sunken hot tub alone would be enough to sell most kids on Chalet Big Bear, and if they’re not worn out from a day skiing, they certainly will be after some afternoon snowman building and a splash in the hot tub.

Inside the chalet, the cosy TV room is the perfect spot for an evening film before bed, and there is even a PlayStation and Nintendo Wii for keen gamers. So, while the youngsters are busy having fun, parents can relax with a few drinks in the main living area in peace.

If you’re travelling with little ones, there is a bunk bed in one of the bedrooms, so they can share with Mum and Dad. To help you travel lighter, cots and highchairs can be provided if required.

Childcare can also be arranged on request.
