Situated in the authentic Savoyard village of Les Bois, 2 km north of Chamonix, Chalet Bibendum is a tastefully renovated holiday home where the comfort of a luxury hotel service meets the magic of a bygone time.
Open all year round, the chalet is run by the owners – Jolanda & Olaf, two sophisticated travelers who combine the pleasure of living in such a spectacular location with the struggle of teaching others the art of “living like a local” in a luxury, comfortable way.
Everything started from a need of sharing with the world their own experiences and passion, so they ventured in picking up one of the oldest farmhouses in the area and transform it in a unique home away from home.
The spacious chalet enjoys a beautiful sunny exposure, providing visitors the opportunity of soaking up the dramatic sights of Mont Blanc. Everything, from the 8 meters high panoramic windows, the balcony as well as the lovely garden are designed to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience of 360-degree breathtaking views. It is like living in a post card!
Boasting four en-suite bedrooms and an expansive living area divided in two by a fireplace, the chalet suits perfectly 8 guests. Both, the fully equipped open-plan kitchen, as well as the dining area provide incredible views.
What better way of ending an enjoyable day in the mountains, than chilling out in a hot tub; relax in a sauna or curling up into a comfortable sofa? Well, Chalet Bibendum prides itself of featuring an amazing sauna and an outdoor wood-fired Jacuzzi where visitors can pamper themselves in a wonderful setting surrounded by incredible views and fresh mountain air.
In order to provide an even more enjoyable stay, the chalet comes with a great range of entertaining options such as: Wi-Fi network for Internet access, Apple TV, Sky, videos and a music system, iMac, printer, and good old fashioned board games.
Among the multitude of quality amenities, tourists will be treat with L’Occitane bath & shower products, wood for the fireplace, BBQ and fresh flowers upon arriving.
Endowed with a special attention to detail, Jolanda & Olaf promise to convey their guests in an enchanting atmosphere and to provide them a genuine experience from the beginning till the end.
Chalet Bibendum offers tourists the great opportunity of benefiting from all inclusive services.
A pleasant “Good morning!” ushered by the famed continental breakfast, an a-la-carte afternoon tea consisting of a great selection of teas, soft drinks, cold beers, coffee and freshly baked cakes of muffins and a tailored dinner and a bar & fridge restocked every day, are just a glimpse of how an all-inclusive stay at Chalet Bibendum will look like. Besides, with an emphasis on quality and locally sourced ingredients, the four-course dinner will be preceded by first-class canapés and tastefully ended with coffee and home-made bonbons made by the main local French chef Basile.
Blessed with a charming location, Chalet Bibendum sets in the quintessential village of Les Bois, in the Chamonix valley, midway between Chamonix town and Argentiere. Only minutes’ walk from the well-known La Flégère lifts in Lez Paz, the lodge serves as a perfect winter accommodation for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, as well as a delightful place for those eager to hike, enjoy a beautiful vacation or mountain bike in the summer, or just willing to attend the area’s wide-ranging events such as the Chamonix Golf Course.
Chamonix serves as an ideal playground for almost all types of outdoor activities, such as ice climbing, rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, rafting or mountain biking along with leisure, spas’ relaxation, children playgrounds, jazz festivals, incredible shopping, nightlife and an excellent collection of bars and restaurants.
Other facilities of the area includes the opportunity of visiting l’Aiguille du Midi (3840), which is definitely a must-do due to its incredible views of the Valley Blanche (La Valee Blanche) – a 20 km run over the glacier which starts from the l’Aiquille du midi and goes all the way down to Chamonix.
A visit to Chamonix Mont Blanc will ideally match a stay at Chalet Bibendum, culminating with a memorable “Bibendum Feeling “, and naturally, a perfect holiday.
