‘Traditional style with a modern twist’ could sum up Chalet Saphir in a nutshell. This luxury chalet in Chamonix has been designed in traditional Alpine style with rich woods, rustic stone and textured fabrics and furnishings, but all with a hint of modernity, from sleek, modern furniture through to designer lighting and top-of-the-range gadgetry.

The property comfortably sleeps 12 in four en-suite double bedrooms and a four-bed mezzanine-floor bedroom, which might be ideal for children to share. Each bedroom has WiFi and its own TV so everyone has their own little bolthole to escape to.

Chalet Saphir is a spacious and sociable chalet for a large group on a luxury ski holiday. The open-plan living area, with a huge statement fireplace and contemporary L-shaped sofas and armchairs gathered around it is the perfect place for getting together in the evenings. Nearby is a long dining table, ideal for convivial evenings with friends and good food. And the whole space is filled with light from the double-height floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the picture-perfect mountains beyond.

A well-equipped kitchen area provides you with all you need, whether you wish to cater for yourselves during your stay or just be able to fix yourself a decent cup of coffee to take out onto the terrace in the morning before you shower and get out on the slopes.

For afternoons when you’ve picked up a few aches and pains during your time on the mountain, there’s a sauna and an outdoor hot tub to soothe sore muscles. And the south-facing terraces with panoramic views are a tonic in themselves. Take yourself outside with your breakfast to be invigorated by the mountain air, or wander out last thing in the evening with a nightcap to look up at the stars; there’s nothing to beat that view.

For larger parties, Chalet Saphir can be taken alongside one or two of its sister properties, Chalet Azurite (6 bedrooms) and Chalet Alaska (5 bedrooms), perfect for multiple family groups or a corporate trip.

Food and drink are as important to the staff of Chalet Saphir as they are to you and they like to ensure that there’s lots of flexibility for everyone.

Should you choose to completely put your feet up for the week, there’s a catered arrangement with Champagne reception, breakfast and afternoon tea served daily. On six evenings, you’ll be served pre-dinner canapés followed by a delicious four course evening meal. You’ll also enjoy open drinks cabinet with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages throughout your stay.

Your chef can also 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.

Alternatively, Chalet Saphir can be taken on a self-catered basis for those who prefer cooking for themselves, or head out into Chamonix to investigate its excellent restaurant scene, just a short walk away.
