Stylish, modern chalet with plenty of living space, inside and out plus hot tub and parking. Well equipped AV plus the services of the chalet host.

It is rare that a home exceeds your expectations, but there is no doubt that Chalet on the Rocks well and truly exceeded ours. This luxurious, architect designed home is impeccably presented and is both incredibly practical and yet warm and cosy. Overlooking Chamonix and with jaw dropping views of Mont Blanc and the famed Aguille du Midi. Many thanks to Cedric for sharing his incredible home. Merci beaucoup to Pierre, who manages the property, who not only provided a daily fresh selection from the patisserie, but was also Chef for our Christmas feast. We look forward to our next visit.

The service, the chalet, the view, everything is beyond expectations. My entire family is happy with everything and fell in love with every detail of the beautifully designed chalet. Cedric made our stay beyond wonderful, accommodating our requests. This stay has truly topped every hotel experience we’ve ever had! Also, Irupe (the chalet assistance) was amazing! She made everything easy and accessible, from giving us tips on the house, to recommendations on where to go, to her delicious food! We will definitely visit again during ski season.

What a marvellous house coupled with a gracious and most helpful host Cedric is a first class house with a first class support team. Access is excellent to Chamonix without being in the town itself. The views are inspirational and the environment incredibly relaxing. We could not ask for more...except perhaps for more time at the Chalet on the Rocks!

Chalet on the Rocks, Chamonix
 

If James Bond were to book himself a ski home, it might look something like Chalet on the Rocks in Chamonix. The private property for 12 — surely one of the most impressive on the site, and owned by the London-based French banker Cedric Hanisch — has all the hallmarks of a slick 007 hideaway, delivered with exceptionally good taste.

There are state-of-the-art gadgets, naturally, from Apple televisions to touch-sensitive lighting, ski-boot warmers and heated outdoor parking for your Aston Martin. Upstairs in the master bedroom, one click of the remote-controlled curtains reveals spectacular floor-to-ceiling views of Aiguille du Midi, Mont Blanc and the Glacier des Bossons (which can also be seen from the freestanding bath), while downstairs the sauna hits 90F in ten minutes — enough time to browse the Liebherr wine chiller for a bottle especially chosen from the owner’s cellar.

The real pleasure, however, is in the design details, such as the open-plan living area, cleverly engineered with exposed steel, and the huge dining table made from a single cut of wood.

Ski lifts are less than five minutes away by car (the chalet has friendly staff for transfers and meals) or, better still, you could spend a morning gazing at the unobstructed views of snowy peaks from the steaming outdoor Jacuzzi.
