Chalet Valhalla

Chamonix, Haute-Savoie

Stupendous views of Mont Blanc – from the hot tub too - minutes from ski lifts, shops and restaurants


7 rooms


Rooms sleep 15


A chalet-with-everything: great mountain style, space and comfort in a wonderful spot. It’s at the secluded, forested end of a no through road in the Chamonix valley, with splendid views of Mont Blanc – even from the hot tub – and within a few minutes’ walk of ski lifts, fine restaurants and shops. It’s also a sophisticated 21st- century build, yet traditional-looking, with masses of Savoyard timber, big windows onto the terrace, geothermic heating; and a first-class ski room, with boot warmers. On snowy evenings a huge log fire burns brightly in the open-plan living area with its minstrel’s gallery, dramatically high vaulted ceiling, deep sofas and dining table for memorable meals cooked to suit, with flair and local ingredients. Two of the bedrooms have wood-burning stoves – worth bagging – though all rooms are super, snug and handsome with dark wood, white linen, splashes of colour, good art and smart, modern bathrooms with fluffy towels and robes. Transfers from Geneva airport are included (there’s parking too) and friendly staff will make arrangements for all this rich mountain area has to offer. A big treat.

We had an incredible time - the chalet is absolutely superb and exceeded our (already high) expectations in every way. The team were very helpful and couldn’t do enough to make our stay smooth and enjoyable.

Local points of interest from Liz or Barbara Pollard

  • I arrived in Chamonix as a keen young skier and traveller… and never quite got round to leaving.I have raised my family here, and we offer a truly personalised service.
  • Whether you are searching for the ultimate winter skiing holiday or a superb summer holiday in the Alps, Chamonix with its stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc has something to offer everyone. We are on the spot to offer our local knowledge and contacts.
  • Chalet Valhalla is close to the sports and aquatic centre, market square (market on Saturdays through the year), Les Planards nursery slopes, the Albert 1er restaurant, the Microbrasserie bar.
  • Chamonix is France's oldest ski resort, a real community with so much going on, easy to travel to just 70 minutes by road from Geneva. Plenty to entertain you from the open-air market to the casino!
  • We think the skiing is the best. Famously challenging, if you insist, but there are plenty of gentle runs too. In summer the place is idyllic, and the range of opportunities fans out: hiking, white water rafting, climbing, golf, mountain biking, tennis.
  • Chamonix has a huge variety of restaurants, from simple Savoyard options to Michelin star taster menus.

Colleen and Jean-Marie own a network of chalets across the valley, which they run with relaxed efficiency and a team of excellent staff – you’ll be well looked after. Jean-Marie is a Chamonix native: a well-respected mountain guide, he’s taken various politicians and celebrities around the peaks and slopes of the area, including Pierce Brosnan during the ski scenes of The World Is Not Enough.
