This traditional and individual chalet in Chamonix is within one of its most quaint and charming areas; Les Tines, which is perfect for families. On a sunny and private plot, close to the famous Chamonix Golf Course, this beautifully designed chalet is just a short drive from the centre, slopes and skiing and enjoys jaw-dropping views of Mont Blanc.
The best asset of this chalet is without any doubt its natural setting. Located in a little hamlet called Les Tines, which offers a quiet environment, this property benefits from lots of natural light, spacious plots, generously sized interiors and amazing mountain views including over Mont Blanc. The area is residential, calm and composed of high-end chalets, giving a secluded countryside feel.
The property has great access to mountain walking trails including the famous ‘Paradis du Praz’ trail along the River Arve just three minutes away from the chalets, which leads you to the village of Les Praz (20-minute walk).
Spread over two levels, this chalet is composed of four bedrooms with fully equipped en-suite bathrooms and even one with a walk-in wardrobe, a spacious living room with a cosy fireplace, an equipped kitchen, a dining room, a cinema room and a gym. Spread over 142 sqm, the chalet has traditional features such as wooden beams. A south-facing terrace of 27 sqm will let you enjoy the stunning views of the mountains.
Interior furnishing will be available on demand and the chalet comes with a garage, a cellar and a ski locker. It is also possible to create additional basements space to increase the size of the chalet by up to 30%. This space could be in the form of further entertaining space, a cinema or spa/wellness facilities.
While in a secluded area, access to the ski slopes and amenities is still easy. Located in between the centre of Chamonix and Les Argentieres, Les Tines benefits from both the amenities of the village of Le Praz, just before central Chamonix (1.5km away), and the shops and restaurants of Argentieres on the other side (4.5km away). The train station is 300 metres away from the chalet, from where you will be able to go to Switzerland, Saint Gervais, Vallorcine, Argentiere and trains to central Chamonix are available. A bus stop is also 300 metres away with buses to Le Tour (approx 20mins), Argentiere (approx 10mins), Flegere (approx 5 mins) and the centre of Chamonix.
One of France's first ski resorts, Chamonix is something of an iconic destination, welcoming skiers since 1906. Bordering Mont Blanc, its proximity to the mountain provides a pull, yet its the dazzling array of pistes that has positioned it as a go-to for experienced skiers on the trail of fresh, virgin powder. With the terrain divided 16 smaller resorts, including Les Praz, Le Tour, les Argentieres and Les Tines where the properties are located, no two days in Chamonix are the same.
Chamonix is an internationally renowned town, famed for being more than just a ski resort, but instead a real mountain sports destination. As such, demand for well located and well-designed properties is consistently high. Property prices in Chamonix have increased by 4.7% since 2017, so the potential for capital appreciation is promising. Rental income is expected to be strong for this chalet, with yields of up to 6% achievable.
