Chalet Etoile Polaire is a luxurious Swiss chalet, recently built and newly refurnished, offering exceptionally spacious (193 m2) accommodation for families and groups of friends travelling together.
Centrally located in snow-sure Les Collons at an altitude of 1800 metres, the chalet benefits from a quiet position, yet the shops, bars and restaurants are all on the doorstep and it's just a 2/3 minute walk to the main chairlift and the pistes. Access is easy due to the chalet's position, quietly situated just off the main street which is cleared of snow on a daily basis.
The chalet is arranged over 3 floors. There is a lower ground floor with 2 double bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room. The open-plan living area on the ground floor incorporates a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area and sitting room with comfy leather sofas, covered log fire and a high vaulted ceiling. In addition there is another bathroom, shower, bath and sauna and a separate ski boot/storage room. A wide wrap-round terrace takes full advantage of the sunshine and enjoys glorious, uninterrupted views across the Herens Valley to the mighty Matterhorn.
The first floor has 2 further twin bedrooms, one with bunk beds and a lofty mezzannine which can be used as a fifth bedroom. There is parking for 2 cars in a garage behind the chalet. A short flight of steps leads down to the sun terrace and front door and the surrounding garden is laid out on a slope with wild flowers and natural vegetation.
Approximately 2 hours drive from Geneva Airport, Les Collons is part of the extensive 4 Valley ski domain, including Verbier. It is a skiers\' and snowboarders\' paradise accessing over 400 kms pistes and 99 lifts with assured snow cover from December to April.
With a sophisticated lift system, fewer queues and Verbier just a couple of hours' ski away, there is fantastic skiing for all abilities. The more advanced will relish the challenges of Etherolla and the moguls and limitless off-piste around the Mont Fort glacier, intermediates will enjoy the long, cruising runs including the famous World Cup, Piste de l'Ours and beginners will gain confidence on the wide, open slopes right above the village. The snow board park at Thyon is considered the best in the region.
