A modern, boutique-styled chalet, sleeping up to 14 people in 5 ensuite bedrooms. Comes with a sauna, outdoor hot-tub and wood-burning stove, and a gym with running machine, bike, rowing machine and weights.
Chalet Nordchamp is an owner-run chalet, so we really care about making a great holiday for our guests. We love Samoëns so much, we quit our jobs in London & moved out here full time in 2015. We live onsite, in a separate apartment so we're available to help if needed, but will leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace!
For the 2023/4 season, we're offering a flexi-catered meal delivery service for evening meals. Depending on the week, we may also be available for the full traditional catered service - please ask for details.
We're in the hamlet of L'Etelley, just between Morillon and Samoëns, in the heart of the Grand Massif ski area. There's 265km of awesome skiing - both in the villages and up in the Flaine bowl. There's local ski schools & ski hire at both Samoens & Morillon - and we can help with getting both fixed up for you.
Its a two minute drive to the Morillon ski lift, or three minutes up to Vercland (which takes you to Samoens 1600), or five minutes into Samoens to pick up the Grand Massif Express lift.
On the ground floor, there’s a large open plan living space where four sets of sliding doors flood the space with natural light. One section of the room is given over to two mid-century modern styled oak dining tables, seating up to 14 people. The copper-coloured inners of the lampshades give a warm atmospheric glow at dinner.
The contemporary styled wood-burning stove is the centre-piece of the spacious lounge area. There's two big sofas and two 1950s classic fireside chairs giving plenty of space for lounging (snoozing) with a book, or chatting with friends.
Choose a book from the library and settle down for a good read. If you haven’t finished a paperback by the time you leave, take it with you, and pass it on to a charity shop when you’re done.
Upstairs, there are four enormous ensuite bedrooms. Ceilings reach right up into the apex of the chalet roof, and have distinctive long dangling lampshades to make the most of the space. Each room has access onto a balcony, with a beautiful view of either the mountains or the forest.
Rooms are usually made up as one twin/triple and three doubles. But there's flexibility to switch doubles to twins if that works better for your group.
All the ensuites have big showers with a fixed head as well as a moveable shower head, wall-mounted WC, wash-hand basin, and a heated towel-rail.
On the ground floor, there’s a further double bedroom, better suited for those with reduced mobility. The ensuite there is a wet-room, with level access floor.
All rooms are comfortably furnished with items we’ve restored or repurposed, and some that we’ve collected on our travels over the years. And we do love a big fluffy towel, so there’s plenty of those too.
No smoking inside the chalet
