Chalet Marmotte is a 5 bedroom family-friendly ski chalet with an exceptionally large enclosed garden and a cinema/playroom in a stunning setting in Saint Gervais Les Bains that's perfect for a winter or summer mountain holiday.
It's a traditional Savoyard chalet but with modern British-style comforts for all ages: king-size beds with memory foam mattresses & Egyptian cotton linen, fully equipped kitchen (everything from a teapot to champagne glasses as well as essentials like a dishwasher), WIFI and wireless music speakers, cinema room with large HD curved TV, English channels, DVD player & Playstation 3, a trampoline in the garden and lots of Lego and other toys.
The chalet is over 3 floors and has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, 2 reception rooms and a boot room area.
The main floor is accessed by steps from the outside. The front door opens into a large hallway. Half of this floor is the main room which has windows on three sides of it and opens onto a full length balcony/terrace. There is a large dining table that can seat 10 at one end and sofas and armchairs the other end.
The chalet has a separate and good-sized fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and microwave. There is also a large bathroom with a bath and toilet on this floor, plus plenty of space in the large hallway for coats and shoes.
The top floor has 4 bedrooms: two large, almost identical, double bedrooms with king-size beds and balconies, plus two further rooms each containing a set of bunk beds. The larger bunk room also has cot bed that can be set up as a sofa when not needed. There is a bathroom with toilet and shower on this floor too.
On the lower level there is a garden entrance for coming in from the slopes and a large seating area for putting on ski boots. Beyond this is a large cinema/playroom room with seating for 10 or more and games to keep the younger guests amused. The fifth bedroom and third bath room are on this floor. This double room is smaller than those upstairs but has the advantage of its own bathroom.

Please ask if there is anything in particular you want as I am sure we have it somewhere.
