Property Description

This premier chalet enjoys 7 bedrooms and is situated a short walk from the Les Houches pistes, (Chamonix's World Cup venue) one of only two ski area's in France able to host the race. Once the village Smithy this beautiful chalet retains an essential French charm with its rustic wood panelled dining area and snow inspired decor but it also offers excellent facilities and home comforts.

We are specialsts in Short Breaks and Ski Weekends!

Your holiday enjoyment is paramount so we include a comprehensive minibus service. Everyday of your holiday we will transport you to the various ski areas in the valley and back, take you for après ski and out to Chamonix town in the evenings. Why stomp to the slopes for 10 minutes by foot or sit on a sweaty ski bus when you can be chauffeured to the bottom of your favourite ski lift in warmth and comfort!

Each bedroom is ensuite or enjoys it's own private, adjacent bathroom/wc or shower/wc. In some of the bathrooms we have used beautiful Italian limestone tiles. The Forge has bags of character in the French Farmhouse style and is enhanced by our collection of lovingly collected ski memorabilia, books, vintage ski's and original posters. We've also included every home comfort to make your stay a real pleasure; a sauna, out door hot tub, separate massage room, Free view Sky, Wii, Wi-Fi.

Our talented chef and chalet hosts offer a friendly yet professional service and sublime food. Evening dinner is pre-ceeded by aperitifs and canapes and our menu is Modern French inspired.

This is an ideal property for large groups, yet some of our best weeks are full of couples and singles too. Families love the spacious layout of the chalet and on our top floor the mezzanine has a mini pool table and tv (for DVD's etc) just for Kids. Children's menus are home cooked and yummy!
