One of the finest views of the Chamonix valley
Tucked away amongst the pine-tree forested slopes of Chamonix, Chalets Gandhara represent an elegant mountain hideaway and spa retreats offering one of the finest views of the Chamonix valley. Located in Les Houches, 8 km from Chamonix, these 14 chalets are part of a hamlet completed in 2006. The chalets have been built in a traditional style, using old wood and have been decorated using the highest quality materials and finishes. The interiors of the chalets have been decorated in a simple, yet modern style, with an emphasis on comfort. Cool neutral tones have been used alongside wooden panelling creating an ambience of warmth and space. Local materials, light pinewood, slate-grey stone, polished granite and rich natural fabrics are used to great effect. The location is unique for ski enthusiasts as it is only a short drive away from the lifts which lead to the start of the Kandahar Trophy Chamonix downhill, one of the oldest competition courses in alpine skiing. Intermediate and beginner skiers will also find good skiing in the area, or alternatively ,they can choose from the other four ski domains of the Chamonix valley. A ski-shuttle service will take you to the ski lifts or to the village of Les Houches.
Each chalet has four inviting bedrooms (three of which are en-suite) and the view from the Master Bedroom on the top floor is an ample reward. The living areas are open plan, with an open fireplace. Friends and family can gather around the dining table next to the fireplace, unwind on the sofas in the sitting area or catch some sun on the balcony. Two of the chalets have telescopes, so you can study the glaciers on the dramatic peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif. The chalets share an impressive 600 sq. m. Spa facility, with an indoor swimming pool, five treatment rooms, a sauna, a hammam and a hydrojet bath to ensure your overall relaxation. There is a extraordinary restaurant with private dining areas and a terrace, which is also a perfect spot for breakfast. Each chalet has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. You have the choice whether you want to enjoy the chalets as self-catered or whether you want to indulge into a private chef whom we can provide.
Whatever you decide, the experience at these child-friendly chalets will be as perfect as the panorama, with extraordinary views coupled with exceptional peacefulness. They offer the very best hotel-style facilities and give you the choice of just how pampered you really want to be.
