Chalet Fingals is a traditional Swiss chalet designed between the owners and a local architect, and built with the very best materials and local craftsmanship. Situated on a sunny tranquil plot, the chalet has been furnished and decorated in a beautiful contemporary style, with every modern convenience being made available to ensure that your holiday is as enjoyable as possible; a real home from home that we are delighted to share with you and your family and friends. The open plan living area and the wonderfully cosy upper-mezzanine floor, which offer a variety of sofa's and leather chairs that could comfortably seat 12 people, benefit from exceptional panoramic views across the Rhone valley; whilst a full length balcony, large tiled terrace and an idyllic garden patio/BBQ area capture the all day sun. 4 bedrooms happily sleeps 8, a sofa bed on the mezzanine floor sleeps 2 more and 4 neighbouring chalets can be rented for larger parties - 5 chalets are all within a snow ball's throw!
