After a great day exploring the mountains, return to your luxury 5 star chalet, pour yourselves a drink and relax in the hot tub, Hammam or stunning bubble sauna designed to make the most of the fabulous view of Mont Blanc. We think you’d struggle to find a more perfect backdrop for your Alpine holiday.
As well as luxury, accommodation designed to make the most of an amazing setting there’s the garden, and a huge furnished terrace with designer lighting, barbecue, a fire pit and a sit-around plancha grill, perfect for fun al fresco meals with friends. For the summer, the owners have also added a petanque piste, as well as an outdoor shower beneath the wisteria.
Chalet Monique sleeps up to 8 adults and 2 children in two luxurious double bedrooms and two suites. Steps and a ramp lead to the main door, which opens onto the living area with a cosy central fireplace.
The well-equipped kitchen is on one side, and a spacious dining area is on the other. There’s room for everyone on the large sofa, whether you are settling down to watch a film on the surround sound TV, chatting about your day or relaxing with a drink. Gamers will appreciate the PS Now subscription, with access to 700 games, and there are also Netflix, Prime and Disney+ subscriptions. You’ll have access to a digital film library and great music, thanks to the Sonos sound system in every room.
The living area opens onto the furnished terrace, perfect for an apero…. After a game of petanque, choose how you wish to prepare dinner: barbecue, fire pit, electric plancha or the Vulx gas plancha. Well-designed lighting illuminates the outdoor seating area, which leads on to the hot tub and outdoor shower. There’s also a bubble sauna with panoramic views over the mountains.
A huge water tank has been installed to gather mountain rainwater, making the chalet completely self-sufficient for water. There is parking for two cars at Chalet Monique, and a rapid electric car charger. The nearby ski room has a heated boot warmer.
Those choosing to work remotely will find three workspaces each with a PC connected to ultrafast broadband. A printer and scanner are also available, as is an Apple Mac Pro.
For a small village, Cordon packs a big punch for winter sports. You can drive to the village’s family-friendly slopes in five minutes, or take the shuttle bus, which stops just below the chalet.
There’s plenty more skiing a little further afield – a 10-minute drive will take you to the Évasion Mont-Blanc area of Combloux, Megève, and Saint-Gervais. Beyond that, 30 minutes away, there’s the Espace Diamant, linking Praz-sur-Arly, Bellecombe, Crest-Volant, Flumet, and Saisies, which hosted the winter Olympics in 1992. Other winter sports just minutes away from Chalet Monique include dog-sledding and snow-shoe walking.
In the summer, there is just as much to do – the mountains are a magnet for walkers, cyclists and golfers. Mountain golf courses offer something a little bit special – fabulous views, clean crisp air and some challenging terrain. There are several golf courses to choose from within an easy drive of Chalet Monique, including the Mont-d’Arbois course at Megève, and the famous Chamonix course. There are 80km of walking trails around Cordon itself, taking in waterfalls, farms and lush green pastures.
