Chalet de Glace – Superb French Mountain Cottage

Chalet de Glace - French mountain chalet for a wonderful holiday (2)

Located up on the mountain, above Morzine locality, France, near the border with Switzerland, Chalet de Glace (in French,  ice chalet) is close to the Pleney slope. Designed by a local architect, the cottage has a few features from the style of a New York loft, with windows from floor to ceiling, exposed beams and iconic furniture. As many others mountain cottages, Chalet De Glace is entirely built of wood and stone. The loft style with retro or vintage accents is quite obvious in the huge living room.

Chalet de Glace has four bedrooms with super king beds, Egyptian cotton linen, cowhide rugs, dressing tables and TV. Each bedroom benefits from a spectacular view, the high windows allow the flow of  light to flood the room. You can relax in a sumptuous bed and enjoy the mountain that is revealed in all its glory while looking up. Each bedroom has its own bathroom that is equipped with a bathtub. The fifth bedroom is furnished with bunk beds for kids.

This cottage is ideal for family groups. Chalet de Glace has a soundproofed cinema room with its original cinema seats, where you can enjoy a bag of popcorn while watching a good movie. Also, in order to revive and relax your tired muscles after a day on the slope, the cottage has a sauna or you can opt for an Italian rain shower. From the outdoor terrace you can enjoy stunning views from the Ardoisiere valley to Avoriaz and across Morzine to the Roc d’Enfer. Even though if it is recently built, fresh and alluring, Chalet de Glace is an “ice cottage” that turns out to be, at least from the pictures, warm and welcoming.
