Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas

In a stunning setting in the Chamonix Valley, this jewel of a chalet offers beautiful accommodation alongside a high-end level of service, with a ski-in ski-out location at the foot of one of the region’s most famous pistes.

As you are greeted on arrival with a glass of champagne, this sets the scene for your days ahead. Gather in the open-plan living space, admire its contemporary elegance and gaze out towards the snow-capped mountains that are perfectly framed by the floor to ceiling windows.

The hospitality at Chalet Saphir is second to none – imagine returning to your chalet for warm drinks and afternoon cakes by the open fire, then being served a high quality three-course evening meal with fine wines on the long dining table. A delicious breakfast is also prepared each morning and bathrooms are cleaned six days a week, allowing you to sit back and relax during your time in this stylish abode.

A fantastic chalet for families or friends, there are flexible sleeping options across the ground and upper floors ranging from a spacious family room with bunk-beds to six welcoming double or twin bedrooms, most with en suite bath or shower rooms.
Other ultramodern features include two contemporary kitchens (one with incredible views), underfloor heating, a Sonos music system and of course Wi-Fi throughout. The beautifully designed sauna is yet another treat or experience more alpine luxury in the outdoor hot tub on the lower decked terrace.
