Chalet Col des Aravis is a practical modern chalet that has just been refurbished by local craftsmen in a contemporary style that respects the local traditions, with extensive wood panelling. It has four bedrooms, sleeping a total of eight. There is a spacious living/dining/kitchen area with a fireplace. Downstairs is a Sauna and an additional separate TV room.
It's fully equipped with a new hot water system, high speed internet, two TVs with DVD players (French broadcast TV isn't available in the chalet, so do bring the DVD's you want to watch), new kitchen, CD player, laundry room, and boot room with heated ski boot racks (to dry out children's wet ski boots overnight), and of course plenty of new toilet and shower rooms.
It's set out as follows: From the main ground floor entrance you enter the hallway with WC and coat racks, leading into a large open plan kitchen, dining area, and living room. The living room has a cozy fireplace with a glass screen for safety (please, don't use it without!). It also has a TV/DVD, CD player and bookcase stocked with exciting mountaineering books.
Proceeding up the stairs you reach a half landing with another WC, a separate shower room, and a double bedroom. Up again to the top floor is the master bedroom and a child's bedroom with two twin beds. The master bedroom is very specious with a double bed, a bathtub, a built-in dressing/wardrobe area, a comfortable armchair and a desk by the window. Both the master bedroom and the double bedroom on the half landing have views over the field towards the village, the "Gateau" hill on the left, and, on a clear day, Mont Blanc peeking out over the Megeve hills on the right.
Going down from the hallway, on the half landing there is a cozy twin bedroom with it's own toilet and shower room. Down again takes you to the basement with the laundry, Sauna and TV room. The TV room has a big sofa and a TV/DVD so that children can watch a movie without disturbing the adults preparing dinner and chatting by the fire. There's also the ski/boot/bike room with its separate entrance.
