Chalet des Drus - Chamonix

About this chalet

 

 

 

"I really had wanted to get to you first to congratulate you not only on your stunning chalets but also on your amazing staff. From the moment I first spoke to you and then with Sally all the arrangements and planning were superb. I pay special contribute to Sally who has been outstanding throughout the months she has been helping me with the trip. I also pay special tribute and thanks to the fantastic service from everyone at the chalets from Dan, Dom and Phil who drove us everywhere and nothing was to much trouble to Chris our chef and all the girls and Ben of course looking after us. It was their great attention to detail and all their tireless help and support that helped make the trip so special and so memorable."

Chalet Description

 

 

This chalet is the most exclusive property to be found in Chamonix and it is highly appreciated by its many returning guests.

 

Not only is the chalet 5-Star from top to toe – our guests also receive high-class services from the chalet staff who ensure that everyone is 100%  looked after. The executive chef will prepare breakfast and dinners – all made to your specific requirements with fresh and local ingredients. Afternoon tea is laid out daily and our housekeepers and hosts ensure that everything is running smoothly during your stay.

 

Private chauffeurs will have vehicles waiting on stand-by to take you to and from the slopes, into the centre of Chamonix or even to neighbouring ski resorts such as Courmayeur and Megeve.

 

 

Le Chalet des Drus boasts an indoor swimming pool, steam room, a small gym, outdoor hot tub and a stunning massage room – a fabulous retreat to relax and recharge.

 

 

The chalet’s façade and interiors combine burned and sand blasted rustic wood with beautiful stonework and a lovely variety of colour-fabrics and textures throughout the building.

 

 

The use of these traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass staircase and slate dining table with iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel.

 

 

Le Chalet des Drus sits on 4,000m2 of private park in one of the most exclusive locations in the Chamonix valley enjoying exceptional 360 degree views of the Mont Blanc massif, Le Brevent, the Aguille Vert and Les Drus.
