Impressive mountain views soar from all angles of this alpine abode; a fringe of snow-capped pines frame the property. The crackle of the wood-burning fireplace fills the home, creating a cozy ambiance. Furry rugs lay atop naturally distressed hardwood floors. After a day of swishing through fresh powder, what’s more relaxing than steaming your sore muscles in the sauna, hot tub, or indoor pool?
Expansive sliding glass doors and an array of windows allow daylight to set the interior ablaze while vaulted timber beam ceilings tower overhead. Mix a drink at the wet bar before curling up on the plush sofa in the media room and watching a movie on the large projector screen. Hot cocoa can be sipped on the wraparound terrace as you deeply breath in the crisp, icy air. During warmer months, the sun-drenched patio furniture and alfresco table encourage you to spend more time admiring the great outdoors. Boot dryers in the ski room ensure that your gear will be toasty and ready to go the following morning.
Les Praz village is within walking distance; hop on the La Flégère gondola and take in the magnificent views of the Mont Blanc mountain range as you steadily climb—a chair lift can take you even higher where you’ll have longer runs to swoosh down. In the summer, follow a network of hiking trails to Les Chéserys lakes, Lac Blanc, and more. Chamonix, the location of the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924, is just a 10-minute drive away.
