Situated in the pretty Chamonix Valley, with outstanding views towards the surrounding majestic peaks, Chalet La Tanière is set in the quiet ‘Bossons’ area, 150m from the Bossons station (train goes to Chamonix centre, Argentiere and is free with tourist card) 500m from the Gaillands lake and about 2km from both the Aiguille du Midi cable car and Planpraz/Brévent lift.
A car is highly recommended although the free Chamonix ski bus stops only 150m away. The first shops are under a mile away.
The owner of this large chalet also owns a home furnishing design business (located underneath chalet) in Chamonix, so the chalet is very well appointed and decorated in a very stylish pure mountain style throughout. It is also very bright with superb views from most of the rooms. The sun facing chalet is arranged over 2 spacious floors and was totally renovated for the 2008/2009 season.
On the ground floor the bright open plan lounge/dining area is equipped with a large Finnish log burner. The fully equipped open plan kitchen area has all the conveniences of a modern home (large full size cooker, fridge-freezer, oven, 4 ring ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker…) and other useful appliances such as espresso machine, raclette and fondue sets. Open thread stairs lead to the first floor south-facing lounge with its comfortable seating and a large plasma TV.
Also available: a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, a lounge/library room with large flat screen TV and DVD and VHS players and unlimited WiFi (take your own laptop), baby kit (including cot, high chair, changing table and feeding accessories). Space for skis and boots, 1 covered parking space plus two other spaces (free outdoor public car park nearby), furnished terrace and enclosed 500m2 garden area.
For your comfort, the chalet is strictly non-smoking and pets are not allowed. The radiators and log burner on the first floor are made of stone and can get very hot, requiring close supervision with toddlers. Similarly the stairs are open thread and without a banister, child supervision may also be needed.

The other bedrooms are on the first floor: one double with en-suite bathroom with bath; another family double with ensuite shower on one side and an alcove room (with window) with built-in bunk beds on the other; a large twin bedroom with ensuite shower which also has built-in wooden bunk beds.
