You have always dreamt of being the keeper of your very own winter wonderland. You are imagining exclusivity and the latest in luxury, all combined with views that don’t stop at the front door. We have just the champagne powder filled domain that you can claim as yours this winter. Welcome to Chalet Lumiere.
Every king wants to know that his castle has the finest views in the land. At Chalet Lumiere, or perhaps we should tell your friends you’re staying at Chateau Lumiere, views come guaranteed. Located in the exclusive Les Bois area of the Chamonix valley, the Mont Blanc Massif looms down upon you. You might like to think of the jagged peaks surrounding you as battlements and the tumbling glaciers as the bastions.
From within your Great Hall, sorry, we mean the open plan, double height living room, the expansive picture windows invite the scenery in. You could spend hours hibernating on one of the inviting sofas, mesmerised by the continually changing view outside. However, you mustn’t forget you are here to experience the legend that is skiing in Chamonix. Your dedicated driver will ensure that you find your pre-warmed ski boots each morning and that you are only a minute’s drive away from the Flegere lift station. If you wish to explore other pistes in your kingdom, your chauffeur will happily whisk you past those doing the ski-boot-shuffle and straight to the lift station.
On your return at the end of the day, a banquet of sweet and savoury treats will be waiting for you by the crackling fire. Time to resume position in front of those windows. Such is the serenity of Chalet Lumiere that you might even see a deer nimbly trotting past.
Time to lower the drawbridge and ensure the moat is in sufficient working order. Yes, your sunken hot tub is simmering away beautifully in the soft afternoon light. You might even invite the children out to disturb the peace and make the latest in chateau security – snowmen guardsmen. With a large garden for such pursuits, you can enjoy a second glass of something chilled and bubbly in the hot tub.
When the sun starts to set on another magical day in Chamonix, entertain the youngest family members with either the drop down cinema system in the living room or the pool table in the games room. As the Queen of Chalet Lumiere, the luxurious master bedroom is calling you. It is time to abandon the cashmere thermals and ski socks and find something altogether more befitting for tonight’s feast. After all, it isn’t every evening that you will dine in such luxury.
We will pretend with you that this week never has to end.

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.
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.
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.
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 accompanied by carefully selected house wines and is served on five nights of your stay, leaving you free to sample the resort's fine selection of restaurants on two nights of your holiday.
The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. Champagne and canapés served on five nights.
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.
Please note - Food & drink costs (including wine & other alcoholic beverages) are additional and payable in resort.
