Every king wants to know that his castle has the finest views in the land. At Chalet Lumiere, or perhaps we should tell your friends you’re staying at Chateau Lumiere, views come guaranteed. Located in the exclusive Les Bois area of the Chamonix valley, the Mont Blanc Massif looms down upon you. You might like to think of the jagged peaks surrounding you as battlements and the tumbling glaciers as the bastions.
From within your Great Hall, sorry, we mean the open plan, double height living room, the expansive picture windows invite the scenery in. You could spend hours hibernating on one of the inviting sofas, mesmerised by the continually changing view outside. However, you mustn’t forget you are here to experience the legend that is Chamonix.
On your return at the end of the day, a banquet of sweet and savoury treats will be waiting for you by the crackling fire. Time to resume position in front of those windows. Such is the serenity of Chalet Lumiere that you might even see a deer nimbly trotting past.
Time to lower the drawbridge and ensure the moat is in sufficient working order. Yes, your sunken hot tub is simmering away beautifully in the soft afternoon light.
When the sun starts to set on another magical day in Chamonix, entertain the youngest family members with either the drop down cinema system in the living room or the pool table in the games room. As the Queen of Chalet Lumiere, the luxurious master bedroom is calling you.
We will pretend with you that this week never has to end.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
