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.

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.

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.
