Chalet des AilloudsLes Houches, France
The chalet sits in large, private grounds of 2353m², spilling directly onto the piste which leads straight to the Prarion gondola, the main lift in les Houches. It was extensively renovated over the past couple of years to provide a modern, contemporary chalet with many features suited to a mountain retreat.
Laid out over 3 floors, the lower ground entrance level comprises a large entrance hall/boot room, a massage room (which could be converted to a study), games room, sauna with shower, laundry and a fully fitted cinema room. A modern staircase leads up to the main living area which focuses around a designer wood-burning stove. The open plan space encompasses the dining area and kitchen, opening onto the large terrace with integral hot-tub giving fabulous, uninterrupted views over the piste and mountains. There is also an ensuite bedroom at this level plus a guest WC. Finally, on the top floor, there are a further 4 bedrooms, all ensuite.
The chalet has been, and continues to be, run as a catered and self-catered rental business.
There are very few chalets like this in the entire Valley. Indeed, it is one of the only genuine ski-in, ski-out positions (have a look at Google Streetview, taken from the Aillouds piste looking directly at the chalet). A ready-made rental business should it be wanted, but the chalet could equally be used as a home or second home.
Agency fees are included in the price and payable by the vendor.

The centre of les Houches is just over 2kms away (less than a 5 minute drive) where there is a wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The roads are very well cleared so access is not a problem. The pistes lead directly to the Prarion gondola, from where a regular bus service connects to the rest of the Valley and the other ski areas.
