This welcoming family chalet is in a great location between the villages of Le Grand Bornand and Chinaillon. Both offer great skiing, walking and bike trails, and if you'd rather not get the car out, the ski bus stops just 50m from your door.
The chalet, which is set over three floors, has plenty of space for 12 guests with five bedrooms and three bathrooms, and there are stunning mountain views from the huge terrace. But the best place to enjoy it is the wonderful hot tub, which sits on its own secluded terrace. If you'd prefer a sauna, Chalet Dazura has that too!
The owners of Chalet Dazura live in an apartment on the lower ground floor of the property, and are always happy to help with local information and advice. They also keep the access of clear of snow throughout the winter.
This traditional family property is a great choice for groups who want to be close to great skiing and winter sports, but would prefer not to be in the centre of a busy village. Set at the end of a hairpin bend, It offers great access to Le Grand Bornand, Chinaillon and further afield.
The accommodation is set over three floors, allowing plenty of space, although with two flights of stairs, it may not be ideal for those with limited mobility.
There are two entrances - one on the lower ground floor for use all year round, and another on the ground floor, which is accessible in the summer. In the winter, the road to the upper door is often used by snowploughs to leave excess snow! The lower entrance takes you straight into a useful kit room, where you can leave all your outdoor gear to dry off, ready for the next morning. There's a washing machine and tumble dryer in this space too.
The main living area is on the next floor - it's a spacious open plan room across the whole width of the chalet. There's a large well equipped kitchen, a dining table big enough for everyone to enjoy a meal together and the seating area with sofas and an open fire. There's a television here too, but you probably won't be able to take your eyes off the stunning mountain views!. For a closer look, doors open onto the huge terrace, with areas for eating, catching some sun or just for the children to play - it's enclosed so they are quite safe. The hot tub is on a separate terrace and there's a pretty, but steep, garden too.
There are two bedrooms on this floor - a cosy bunk room for children and a double room, both with en suite shower rooms. There's also a separate toilet. There are three more bedrooms on the next floor - a children's room with three single beds, a double room and a family room with a double bed and a single bed. These bedrooms share a bathroom, which has a bath, shower and two handbasin. There's also a separate toilet.
The layout of Chalet Dazura works really well for two families, who could have a floor each, with their own bathroom facilities.
