The amazing views of Mont Blanc will take your breath away at this beautiful, traditionally-styled chalet for eight in the pretty village of Combloux, nicknamed the pearl of Mont Blanc. One of two chalets set behind electronic gates just 2.5km from the village centre, it's a great choice for a couple of families, or perhaps a group of friends.
This four-bedroom, four-bathroom chalet boasts a balcony and terrace, an outdoor hot tub, a barbecue area, hamam and a large games room with pool table.
As you enter the chalet on the ground floor, there's room to hang up your coats, and entrance to the garage, where you can store bikes, skis, and golf clubs - in fact the owners have left two sets of golf clubs here for your use.
The main living room is dominated by the unusual central fireplace, which warms both the living areas, with its cosy leather sofas, and the dining area.
From here doors open on to the terrace and barbecue area, which has stunning views of the valley and Mont Blanc. The kitchen is well laid out and has everything you need to cook for your group.
Upstairs there are two spacious bedrooms - the master double bedroom, which has an en suite bathroom and access to the balcony, and a twin bedroom. There's also a large shower room on this floor, making it perfect for a family, and an office area on the landing.
There are two more bedrooms on the lower ground floor, both of which have en suite bathrooms, dressing areas and access to the hot tub terrace. This floor also has a hammam area with shower, and a huge games room, with a pool and table tennis table, a Smart TV, toys and games. There's a laundry area too, with a washer and dryer.
Chalet Petille is in a great location for those who love mountain sports, whatever their level - Combloux, along with Megève, and Saint-Gervais, is part of the Évasion Mont-Blanc ski area, and it's a 30 minute drive to the Espace Diamant, which comprises Praz-sur-Arly, Bellecombe, Crest-Volant, Flumet, and Saisies. This area played host to the winter Olympics in 1992.
Experienced skiers looking for some stunning night skiing should head for the Vallée Blanche - do hire a guide for this 23km run which, with a 2,000m drop, will take you from the Aiguille du Midi to the Mer de Glace, an almost surreal experience under a full moon.
You'll find a small supermarket, butcher, baker, pharmacy, bars and restaurants in Combloux, and there are more facilities in nearby Sallanches, Megève and St Gervais. A lot of the surrounding villages have good markets, where you can buy fresh produce and local specialities.
Whether you visit in summer or in winter, there is so much to discover within a short drive of this great ski chalet.
