This beautiful chalet for 14 people is tucked away on a quiet road in the hamlet of Grand Marvel, less than 2.8km from Morillon, and just 7.5km from the picturesque ski village of Samoens in the stunning Giffre valley.
Nature is all around you at Chalet Vivaldaim, which is situated next to a babbling stream on the edge of a forest. Whether you're relaxing in the covered outdoor seating area, soaking in the hot tub, catching some sun or enjoying the view from the barrel sauna, you'll be enchanted by the birdsong and perhaps a glimpse of visiting deer.
There's plenty for kids too, with a slide down to the lower terrace.
In the winter, ski lifts from Morillon and Samoens will connect you to the Grand Massif resorts of Flaines, Sixt and Les Carroz. In the summer, you can enjoy great walking, hiking and biking as well as white watersports on the Giffre river.
The bright and spacious accommodation at Chalet Vivaldaim is set over four floors. As you enter on the ground floor, you'll find a spacious ski and bike room with boot and glove warmers, comfortable benches, bike storage and a washing machine and tumble dryer.
There are also three bedrooms on this floor - a double with en suite shower and bath, another double room with en suite shower room and a room with bunk beds and an en suite shower room. There's also a useful living area with a TV, games console and kitchenette - a great space for older children to hang out, watch a film and perhaps grab some snacks and drinks.
The main living area is on the next floor. Here, cosy sofas and chairs are arranged around a fireplace and TV in the impressive double-height seating area. Doors open from here on to a wonderful covered balcony, which is furnished with more sofas - a wonderful place to relax and watch the sunset in the evenings. There are steps - and a slide! - down to the lower terrace, where you'll find the barrel sauna, the hot tub and a sun deck.
The spacious kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd, and there's plenty of room to eat together at the large dining table, which looks out on to the terrace and the view beyond.
There are three more bedrooms on this floor, all of which have en suite shower rooms - two double rooms and a twin room. The stylish master suite under the eaves on the top floor has an elegant en suite bathroom and a seating area.
All of the beds will be made up for your arrival with quality bedlinen, and fluffy bathrobes, towels and Nuxe toiletries provide an extra touch of luxury in the bathrooms.
There is plenty of parking for several cars outside the property.
The chalet is less than 3km from the chairlift at Morillon, and just 7.5km from the ski resort of Samoens, and the ski bus stops at the end of the road, just 200m away. The lifts connect with the Grand Massif resorts of Sixt, Flaine and Les Carroz, giving you easy access to over 250km of great skiing, with plenty of challenge for all abilities. Snowfall is regular and abundant, and there are three jam parks for freestylers.
There are a few shops, including a popular bakery, in Morillon and a greater selection in Samoens, but if you're looking for local produce, you can buy it straight from the farm just 500m from Chalet Vivaldaim.
