Property description

'Les Cerisiers' is a traditional stone chalet built by master craftsman Robin Ferguson in 1998/99, and nestled in the high alpine village of Vallorcine, upon the river Eau Noire. The restorative sounds of water and tinkling of cowbells in summer; the glory and magnificence of pristine snowfall and white-capped peaks in winter will fulfill your fantasies of a vacation in the magical French Alps.

Chamonix/Mont Blanc is a short 15 minute drive away, with the new ski station at Vallorcine a few minutes by car or accessible by ski; the new telesiege services Le Tour/Balme ski area; the Grands Montets ski area is only ten minutes by car. A 10 km cross-country classic/skate set track runs through the property at river level. Summer offers fishing from the property, unlimited hiking and wildlife viewing, and tennis courts are a five minute walk. In July the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland is 1 hour away. The center of the Vallorcine village now offers new restaurants, an ice skating rink, a spa and other amenities.

The chalet is cozy, yet modern with heated tile floors in the bathrooms and heated towel racks, high-quality linens, and feather duvets. Furnished with antiques as well as new, the views are southwesterly of surrounding peaks, forests, and open meadow. Pets are NOT allowed, No Smoking.

This chalet offers a unique experience for those desiring a real taste of old provincial France, yet located very close to internationally-renowned resorts.

Enjoy entry to the new indoor heated pool, saunas, fitness room and day spa for a reasonable fee at the Residence Vallorcine in the centre ville. Enjoy an outdoor skating rink free to the public in winter or pony rides near the centre ville in summer. 80 km of maintained hiking trails in summer from Vallorcine, all accessible on foot and out the door of the chalet. Experience outdoor thermal baths in Lavey, Switzerland nearby and spoil yourselves at the indoor/outdoor spas of Pres St. Didier in Italy, just through the Mt. Blanc tunnel. Visit vallorcinedotcom for details on all the fun events and activities in this pristine and picturesque village high in 'les Alpes Francais'.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1998

About: This warm, homey and authentic chalet was the inspiration of my husband, a gifted designer and craftsman for 30 years in the Colorado Rockies. His love of France and the Alps sparked him to create a flavorful experience in a small, French provincial village only 15 minutes from the world renowned town of Chamonix in the Haute Savoie. We invite you to enjoy and explore the quintessential French Alps experience. Martha Ferguson

Why Chamonix Mont Blanc:
The French Alps and Chamonix Valley have long been our destination abroad.... years of skiing the incredible pistes, the adventures off-piste skiing in winter and hiking in summer are incomparable, and the combination flavor of stunning mountain towns with the French flair for food, wine, music and 'joie de vivire' are magnetic. The specific setting of the chalet is in magical Vallorcine, known for its wild alpine flora and fauna.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Imagine waking to the sound of tinkling cowbells in summer, fabulous hiking out the door, clay tennis courts a 5-minute walk away, evening strolls around the village in summer where it is quiet, yet full of life. In winter, the call of skiing is so close you can hear the whisper of kick-and-glide--literally out the door; ski stations are as close as 3 minutes by car to Vallorine's own access to the superb Le Tour/Balme ski areas or 10 minutes to the exhilirating station of Les Grands Montets.
