Property DescriptionA perfect opportunity has arisen to acquire this wonderful, traditionally built and spacious chalet located in the hamlet of La Thuile which is just 4km from the family orientated ski resort of Sainte Foy. From here, you can also access by car the world famous resorts of Val d’Isère, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosière where you can ski over the border into Italy. For summer, experience the famous Tour de France cycle race which passes by on the road below this year or take in the amazing terrain for walking, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing and water sports on the nearby lake in Tignes or canoeing and rafting on the Isere river. This beautiful chalet set at 1200m sits proudly above the traditional hamlet of La Thuile and has truly spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Currently run as a business, there is an opportunity to hit the ground running and take on the existing client base or you may wish to use this as a traditional family home. A private 200m driveway opens onto a level car park large enough to accommodate 10 cars. The property is set over 3 floors with surrounding garden space and the mountain to the rear. Ski access to the car park is available ‘off-piste’ when the snow conditions permit. On the ground floor, an entrance hallway leads into a large boot room with wood benches, coat hooks, ski boot dryers, fitted wardrobes, two storerooms, a boiler room and a very useful laundry room with sink unit. There is also a large ski equipment room which is currently set up for commercial business comprising work benches and ski racks. A hallway leads into bedroom 1 comprising wood floor, en-suite shower room with towel heaters and wall radiator. Bedroom 2 is generously proportioned with a disabled wide access doorway and a very spacious ‘wet room’ style shower with hand basin, WC, towel heater and wall radiators. A gravel pathway via a gate leads to the additional ground floor accommodation comprising bedrooms 3, 4 and 5 which are beautifully appointed with en-suite shower rooms, wood flooring, hand basins, WCs, towel heaters, wall radiators and double patio doors which lead out directly onto the large garden. All 3 bedrooms have connecting doors and this area can be converted into a separate apartment or holiday let with potential to add a kitchen/dining area if so desired. The first floor is accessed from the car park by a short stairway into the entrance hallway leading into the very spacious living room with a stone tiled floor, a bar area and a beautiful open log burning fireplace which truly make this the focal point of the Chalet. A large window to the front of the property and double patio doors leading onto the balcony afford amazing views of the surrounding mountains. A quirky spiral staircase from the lounge takes you to a mezzanine level with traditional wood beamed ceiling which is carpeted and currently used as a ‘chill-out’ TV room. From the main hallway you will find the very spacious dining room which is large enough for 20 people to dine in comfort. A double patio door leads onto the large balcony which runs across the entire side of the chalet….perfect for that summer time breakfast and evening time dinner experience. A very well configured commercial kitchen with quality equipment can be converted into a family space if desired with room enough for a central breakfast table and a doorway leading onto the balcony. There is a useful computer room and a bathroom with WC and hand basin located on this level. A stairway leads to the second floor landing and you will find a useful office with single aspect window. Bedroom 6 has a gorgeous wood beamed ceiling, wood floor, en-suite shower with WC, hand basin, towel heater and wall radiator. Bedroom 7 is the large family room with double aspect windows, wood floor, wood beamed ceiling, separate bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hand basin. Bedroom 8 is quite unique in the layout with a split room area to accommodate 4 people a separate bath/shower room with WC, hand basin and towel heaters. The outside area of the chalet needs to be seen to be believed with the surrounding mountains looking over the property on all sides. A lawned and level garden which is quite rare in the mountains leads to one side of the chalet where you will find the cute and traditionally hand crafted log cabin comprising a sauna room, WC and shower. Here you will also find the outdoor Jacuzzi big enough for 7 people to enjoy the spectacular landscape and relax after an exciting, fun filled day on the ski slopes. A walkway through the garden leads onto the balcony and to the additional terraced garden at the rear of the chalet with a traditional French boules playing area. To the rear of the property is open pastureland with cows grazing in summer and the ability to ski down ‘off piste’ from the Sainte Foy ski resort in winter to the car park when the conditions permit.
Serre Chevalier Ski Area
This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.
Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.
Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.
Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
Saint Gervais Ski Resort
Saint Gervais and the Evasion Mont-Blanc area consists of 445km of piste , the 3rd largest area in France , 219 slopes, 107 ski lifts and 650 artificial snow makers. The area also has 5 snow parks and a good choice of off-piste.
