The Location

Chalet Iona is unique. There are simply no other private chalets in the 3 valleys with the peace, space, views and silence as this one

Entirely remodeled in the summer of 2017, the chalet is lovelier than ever; bespoke cast-iron chandeliers from Sheffield, mid-century scandanavian furniture, an ultra-modern kitchen with Miele appliances and extra large Laconte 2m professional cooking range, a 6m handmade French oak dining table and many unique objets d'arts. Two new sundecks have been added - one with a sunken 12 person open-air Jacuzzi.

The chalet sits in its own orchard, surrounded by apple, pear and cherry trees, spruce and silver birch. Views from its three balconies stretch through the Valley of Bozel, over 12 hamlets and villages and on to the glaciers of Tignes over 35 km away.

Chalet Iona and her sister Chalet India, in the hamlet of Le Villard, are only a 4 minute car-ride from the Olympe Express bubble lift to Meribel, yet remains a million miles from life's hectic daily struggle.


The Chalet

The property comprises a main chalet with 6 en-suite bedrooms, sleeping 12 people comfortably (further beds can be added for large groups). Meals are served on a 6m hand-made oak table with seating for 20. There are panoramic ceiling to floor views with an east-facing breakfast balcony and a south-facing Juliet balcony off this 80m² room. A modern Zelia fireplace with two separate seating areas are ideal for after-dinner drinks and movies.

There is a further 50m² living room with a 60inch satellite movie TV, a Marantz/ATC sound system, a further fire-place and ample seating for two to three families. A room with magnificent natural light, it has broad window views across 3 sides. This room is furnished with leather chesterfield sofas, art deco and mid-century danish pieces, in rosewood, teak and marble. It leads onto a 40m² east-facing sun deck.

Each of the 6 bedrooms have a TV and their own bath/shower rooms. The 2 master bedrooms feature original art deco and biedermeier furnishings and the four further bedrooms have bespoke oak furniture and hand-made Tiffany lighting.

Next door is Chalet India, which sleeps 4-6. It is ideal for friends, grandparents or private staff. Gorgeous morning views across the 3 balconies, complement the open plan ground and mezzanine level parents' room. With a central log-fire place, this chalet personifies the picture postcard stone and wooden chalet of Savoie.
