Chalet Valhalla

Chamonix, Haute-Savoie

Stupendous views of Mont Blanc – from the hot tub too - minutes from shops and restaurants, hiking and biking trails. A real treat


7 bedrooms


Sleeps 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 fine restaurants, bars and shops. It’s also a sophisticated 21st- century build, yet traditional-looking, with masses of Savoyard timber, big windows onto the sun-drenched terrace, a large, lawned garden and a whole raft of summer activities to choose from. You’re surrounded by fine walking trails and can go climbing, caving, paragliding riding… and do take the pinion railway to see the Mer de Glace glacier. Self-caterers have the run of the professionally equipped kitchen as well as the open-plan living area with its minstrel’s gallery, dramatically high vaulted ceiling, deep sofas and convivial dining table The family bedroom is huge, all are handsome with dark wood, white linen, good art and smart, modern bathrooms with fluffy towels and robes. Transfers from Geneva airport can be arranged (there’s parking too), and helpful staff on hand. A real treat.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Colleen Olianti

  • 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!
  • 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 Olianti

Colleen and Jean-Marie own several 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.
