Once an old mountain barn, this property has been fully renovated into a luxurious mountain haven. Set in a tranquil, alpine location, the chalet boasts an ideal balance between traditional Savoyard style and contemporary, high-end features. The property is divided into two dwellings with an independent 4 bedroom chalet on the first two floors and a magnificent spacious 2 bedroom chalet on the top 3 floors. With 6 bedrooms in total, two stunning dining rooms and a professional kitchen, a cozy home cinema come bar area, and a terrace with spectacular views, it offers everything you could need in a top of the range chalet. Sitting at 1300 metres in Fontaines Naves, a quaint village in La Léchere, the property is ideally situated to enjoy the surrounding 35 km of cross-country ski tracks, ski touring and snow shoeing- not to mention the world renowned skiing with Valmorel ski area just 30 minutes away and the 3 Valleys ski areas of Meribel/Courchevel/Les Menuires within 45 minutes. The exterior of the chalet oozes rustic, Savoyard charm, and looks out across incredible views over the whole valley.
The first dwelling is laid over the first two floors of the chalet comprising an entrance hall area with two bedrooms leading off from the entrance one of which has its own shower room. The property features a well equipped kitchen with a central island. There is a large laundry room and second bathroom on this floor providing plenty of storage within the property. The kitchen leads to a plush lounge area with cosy lighting and an open fire place. Adjacent to the lounge is a grand dining room beautifully decorated under a unique vaulted ceiling which adds charm to the property. This room is fantastic for hosting banquet dinners and parties. There is a terrace which is accessed directly from the lounge area with seating, ideal to enjoy during the long spring/summer days.
On the first floor you have two further bedrooms each with direct access to a balcony. These rooms share a magnificent bathroom with freestanding bathtub and a huge walk in shower. A truly incredible space adding luxury to this beautiful home.
The second dwelling above is currently the owners home which has been renovated with great style and complete attention to detail throughout. As you enter into the chalet, you are immediately faced by a welcoming open plan living area with high ceilings which is incredibly inviting. The property has a huge ‘farm-house’ style open kitchen which is fully equipped and used not only for every day cooking but also as a professional kitchen for hosting cooking classes and events. There is a beautiful dining room within the open plan living area next to a cosy lounge with stove and a reading corner with an eye-catching wooden book case. From the lounge area you can access the balcony which wraps around the chalet and leads to a magnificent terrace with beautiful views and surrounded by fruit trees.
As you lead up the bespoke staircase to the first floor, here you have a room which is completely drenched in sunlight with the floor to ceiling windows. The owners have a second lounge/seating area here to take in the views and also a small office corner. On this floor there is a stove, ideal for those cosy evenings on the sofa. On this floor is an incredible large bar area which is fully equipped, fantastic for those that enjoy hosting parties and socialising at home. The master suite is situated on this level which measures over 30sqm in size with the most incredible bathroom and the largest I have ever come across of over 18sqm. Featuring a freestanding bathtub, double vasque, open shower and WC this is luxury living at its best. On this level is a second shower room and a laundry area.
On the top and last floor of the property, is a very private double bedroom with lounge area under the eaves and timber roof structure. The views from this level are truly spectacular.
The Chalet also has a garage at road level which has been completely fitted out as a workshop/bike store.
This chalet couldn’t be better located to enjoy everything the mountains of the Savoie region have to offer throughout all four seasons. Fontaines Naves is an authentic, gorgeous mountain village full of charm. In the winter, you can enjoy 35 km of cross country tracks, the incredible Nordic ski area of Grandes Naves, and breathtaking snow-shoe walks- as well as a spa day in La Léchere! In the summer there’s plenty on offer too, choose from hiking, mountain biking, cycling, white water rafting, or any kind of outdoor activity that allows you to appreciate the true beauty of the Vanoise national park! An unmissable business opportunity in a well sought-after area of the Alps. Get in touch for more information or to arrange a visit- virtual visits possible.
Le Grand Domain Ski Area
Le Grand Domain consists of Valmorel, Celliers, Doucy and Saint-François Longchamp. It’s an excellent ski area that remains relatively unknown to many British skiers in comparison to the nearby ski areas of the Three Valleys and Espace Killy. In fact the back of this area actually overlooks the Belleville valley, one of the Three Valleys.
Saint-François Longchamp is located in the heart of the Maurienne Valley, in the south of Savoie whilst the resorts of Valmorel, Doucy and Celliers are based in the heart of the Tarentaise mountain range, and provide skiing for those who like to be a little closer to nature.
The ski area is spread over an altitude of 1,300 to 2,832 metres offering a wonderful 160kms of piste. It also has a vast range of Nordic skiing circuits available and this also includes separate resorts like Naves. There is no doubt that this area caters particularly well for families and the French flock here, hence there are more apartments than chalets. It is an area of outstanding beauty, great skiing and a vast wilderness away from the piste.
The resorts are very varied; Valmorel is the largest and most well known with a lovely village centre and lively atmosphere. Saint-François is a small bur well conceived resort that is also family orientated. Celliers is a tiny mountain village with an auberge that just happens to have a ski lift that links in to this area. This is a ski destination for those who really like to be far from the madding crowds.
Valmorel Ski Resort
Valmorel is a charming ski resort; it is a smaller size with some of its neighbours and is often compared to the huge resorts of nearby Three Valleys and Espace Killy, which is a bit unfair as this resort has a lot to offer in the way of skiing and charm. The centre is pedestrianised giving the après ski a very cosy and fun feel.
The resort nestles on the edge of the forest, next to the Cheval noir peak - Valmorel is a village that melts in with the landscape. The wooded, stoned and lauze roofed chalets spread around the ski lift departure points, the well designed centre and nice pedestrian street full of shops and restaurants give Valmorel a heart and it is a place where you will feel welcome and gives Valmorel its unrivalled character of a Savoyard village.
Also very popular and busy in the summer when tourists come to enjoy every type of mountain activity as well as the beautiful views and flower meadows. The ski area offers a diversity of terrain for the confirmed and adventurous skiers on the vertiginous black slopes and yet is also reassuring for beginners and children to learn on the gentle slopes of summer pastures.
Before I lived here I used to come for long weekends to Valmorel – and never had a dull visit, it always delivers for me. Specially equipped and secured areas have been designed especially for those new to the snow: 2 beginner stadiums for adults and children, and for those not so new - a snowpark including a half-pipe and a boarder cross.
Down the valley from Valmorel you’ll find La Léchère a small thermal town which provides all sorts of therapies to experiment with! Valmorel also has some charming satellite resorts which in themselves are worth a visit. Doucy Combelouvière, Longchamp and Celliers all with their own ski lifts and identity.
If you’re feeling adventurous get yourself a guide, the off-piste is meant to be interesting! So in winter this resort sits best with beginners and intermediates but also has a lot to offer the more hardened skier who is prepared to seek out the challenges.
In summer it’s a delight, the cycling in particular is stunning with plenty of refuges open for very good lunches. This is a great place to buy with prices lower than its neighbouring resorts mostly because it hasn’t got the following that the others have.
