Tucked into the Chamonix Valley in a sought-after area of Les Houches is the beautiful Chalet Kuma, a ski chalet with a spa that’s a perfect spot for a large group to base their luxury ski holiday.

Kuma is architect-designed and the interiors are as cool and sleek as the Kandahar Piste it sits on, giving ski-in/ski-out access.

The chalet has two lounge areas – one a TV space where you can gather for a movie or let the kids sprawl in front of the TV when they’re tired out from ski school. Then there’s the fabulous main living space, with a statement Starck fireplace, huge sofas, stunning pieces of modern art and skylight windows that flood the whole space with light.

Nearby is an open-plan dining space where you and your party will enjoy gourmet meals, prepared by your talented chef and talk long into the evenings. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the latest gadgetry, and is a lovely place to hang out, whether you’re cooking up a storm yourself or watching your chef hard at work while you have a glass of wine. There’s also a breakfast bar, ideal for a quick coffee between breakfast and hitting the snow.

Downstairs there’s a lovely spa area with sauna, Hammam and a beautiful swimming pool where you can soak aching limbs and enjoy the relaxing view as you float about. It’s easy to lose your whole afternoon down here, completely unwinding.

The building is in a private spot with terraces on three sides of it, giving you a lovely outdoor space from which to enjoy your mountain views with a glass of bubbly each evening.

At the end of each action-packed day, we promise you will positively float to your bedrooms. Each is decorated in a contemporary Alpine style with warm, chunky woods, crisp linens and spa-style bathrooms. We recommend you arrive early to bag the fabulous master suite up on the top floor, which has a private terrace and a bed that’s a pure work of art. Wherever you lay your head, though, in this luxury ski chalet, we guarantee you’ll find you have sweet dreams.

Your gourmet experience at Chalet Kuma arrives even before you begin, when your chef will be in touch to discuss menus and find out what your requirements are. The meals you will enjoy can be directed by you, so whether you want haute cuisine or something a little lighter and simpler, you have only to say.

On arrival, you’ll be welcomed with a Champagne and canapés reception to get you in the holiday mood, and then the fun begins.

Each morning, a continental and cooked breakfast is served to fuel you for a day on the slopes. When you return from your day on the mountain, afternoon tea is ready and waiting for you.

Between afternoon tea and dinner, your chef will prepare a dedicated kids’ meal for any younger guests so they can eat nice and early and be tucked up in bed by the time the grown-ups want to sit down and relax.

Then dinner is generally a four-course extravaganza, served with carefully selected wines. Sit back and enjoy your chef’s sumptuous culinary creations as the attentive hosting staff keep your glasses filled, ensuring that you have the most incredible dining experience possible. Your chalet is also well stocked with a range of premium spirits, beers and soft drinks throughout your stay.

Your chef has a day off when you can head out into Chamonix to investigate its excellent restaurant scene. We love Albert Premier, owner of two Michelin stars and arguably one of the best ski resort restaurants in the world.

Chalet Kuma can also be taken on a self-catered basis for those who prefer cooking for themselves, or allowing you the flexibility to enjoy the many bars and restaurants of Chamonix.

The sleeping floor has its own TV lounge, where the kids can watch a movie in the afternoon or before bed while the adults begin their evening meal. There’s also a swimming pool that kids of all ages are sure to enjoy and is certain to tire them out ready for bed if a morning in ski school didn’t have the desired effect.
