Tucked into the Chamonix Valley in a sought-after area of Les Houches is the beautiful Chalet Kuma, a ski chalet with 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 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 its own 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.
