Overview

YOU'RE THE KING OF THE RANCH

More luxury ski ranch, than ski chalet, this vast property features 700m2 of refined luxury in an idyllic setting. Le Chalet des Drus was purpose built for luxurious holiday rentals and champions contemporary French Alpine architecture to stunning effect. 

The chalet boasts many premium features other than its sheer scale and size. The indoor swimming pool and spa area are particularly stunning and a very rare find in Chamonix. The list of luxury features really is endless with a gym, hot tub, hammam and cinema room all at your disposal – Le Chalet de Drus offers 5-star accommodation from top to bottom.

A seriously handsome structure, the exterior of the chalet uses traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass stairway and slate dining table using iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel, (architect of the Eiffel Tower). This creates a stunning symbiosis utilising traditional building materials and artisan skills with contemporary design and technology.

The three double bedrooms to the left of the property are all en suite with access to  the garden through sliding doors. Above the garage is a home cinema with state of the art sound system, very comfortably furnished and set apart from the main chalet for privacy and noise considerations.

The right side of the chalet contains the indoor swimming pool, steam-room and massage table. This space benefits from very large picture windows affording spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding mountains with access to the garden. Adjacent the swimming pool you’ll find the master suite, with private entrance. This stylish and spacious bedroom has access to the garden through sliding doors and has it’s own private entrance. Complete with fireplace and chaise long there’s also a mezzanine with another bed and study space. Additionally the ground floor contains a children’s en suite room with bunk beds with access to the garden. You’ll also find a guest toilet.

One floor up you’ll find a very spacious living/dining area with huge fireplace separating the two areas. Large windows lead out to the garden and balcony containing a lounge corner with outdoor furniture and BBQ-Bar area. The kitchen is equipped with the very best that Miele has to offer by way of kitchen appliances. There’s also a separate breakfast table, a Miele coffee machine and a small breakfast terrace to bask in the morning sun as you enjoy breakfast. Chalet des Drus also offers an exclusive annex with an equipped gym, a stunning massage-room and changing-rooms.

Reviews

FROM THE PRESS

“For a large group, Chalet des Drus is ideal. It is a spacious, beautifully designed property set below Mont Blanc with breath taking views of the mountain and surrounding massif.”

Condé Nast Traveller

“Not far from Chamonix, in the midst of Les Bois, there is an impressive chalet built by people who love both the mountain and the valley. Impressive because of its size and also because of its stunning panorama over Les Drus, Aiguille du Midi, Mont Blanc and La Flégère”

Altus Magazine

“The bedroom headboards are bespoke and the beds made up with Egyptian cotton bed linen and layered with cashmere and faux-fur throws. Traditional-style armchairs add a retro touch and the rooms have the latest in technology from mood lighting to satellite TV.”

Grazia Magazine

“Cowhide-trimmed bath and basins is just one of the striking features at Chalet des Drus. Other eye-catchers include a slate dining table, orange leather Hermès dining chairs, a dramatic fireplace, home cinema, glass staircase, original art and designer rugs.”

The Independent – ‘The Big 6 – Chic Ski Chalets’

WHAT WE THINK

One of my favourite chalets in France - just the sense of space here is hard to match. It's a vast chalet, set in huge grounds with the surrounding mountains acting like an amphitheatre to the main show - Des Drus.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served on six nights leaving you free to enjoy the great local restaurants on one night of your stay.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open drinks cabinet of beer, carefully selected house wines, spirits and mixers. On your arrival evening you will be treated to a lovely Champagne reception.

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
