Eco Lodge is a stunning designer ski chalet that is drenched with light through its giant, south-facing windows. The views are drop-dead spectacular, it has been stylishly and beautifully renovated, plus it has been built with commendable green technologies. This luxury ski chalet is, as its name suggests, fully self-sufficient and able to totally power itself.
Forget traditional chalet trimmings; Eco Lodge is modern with cutting-edge, designer fittings and furniture. Think bleached wood, polished chrome, leather, stone, glass, and heaps of light.
There are four beautiful, bright double bedrooms in this luxury ski chalet and one bunk room, with four bathrooms. The bunk room shares a bathroom with one of the doubles, making a family room. This bathroom has a bath, while the others all have showers. All are also supplied with divine L’Occitane toiletries, slippers and fluffy gowns.
This luxury catered ski chalet considers that its food offering is its speciality, and the standard is certainly exceptional. Think of cuisine that would qualify for 1* Michelin status. It is top class, and draws on the very best ingredients on offer each day.
The chalet offers a 4-course fine dining dinner on five nights, so you have two nights off to go in search of pizza or something else a little less fancy in town. Each dinner comes with carefully-selected house wines too. Breakfast of your choice is served daily, while there are also scrummy homemade cakes for afternoon tea.
There is an outdoor hot tub on the lower terrace of this luxury ski chalet with jaw-dropping views of the Mont Blanc massif. Eco Lodge also has a scenic outdoor wood-fired barrel sauna.
Eco Lodge is totally child-friendly. Toys are available, and the hot tub can be good for older children, depending on age. There is also a private outside area for playing in, away from traffic and cars, and early dinners can be arranged.
The genuinely spectacular views of the Mont Blanc massif – among the very best from any chalet in the Chamonix valley. Oh, and the food. Just sublime.
The chalet doesn’t have an open log fire, but the views and the light more than make up for this. And there is, of course, the wood-fired sauna outside.
Eco Lodge is located in the pretty, extremely smart hamlet of Les Nants in the Chamonix valley, just 1km from Chamonix town itself heading towards Argentiere. It is set back and up from the road, in a private position with wonderful south-facing, sunny, spectacular mountain views. The village of Les Praz and Chamonix are both less than 15 minutes away on foot, and the chalet is just 2 minutes from Brevent/La Flegere and only 10 minutes from Les Grands Montets.
Geneva is the nearest airport to this luxury ski chalet. Transfers are not included in the price but the chalet can arrange these for guests. In-resort transfers between the different ski areas are included. Unlimited in-valley transfers can also be arranged, at a supplement, if guests want a driver on call from 8am until midnight.
