Chalet Passon is a fantastic newly built chalet with a chic and contemporary interior. It is ski in ski out via the nursery slopes at Les Chosalets, snow conditions depending and situated a five minute walk from the famous Grands Montets ski lifts. It is set within a hamlet of just 4 modern luxury child friendly chalets.

The large open plan living room and dining area are both light and spacious and the perfect spot to relax. Sit in front of the roaring log fire and widescreen TV or there is a private hot tub on the deck where you can take in the breathtaking panoramic views of the mountains. There is a new games room with table football as well as large sauna/steam room downstairs.

Food

The great advantage of a chalet holiday is that you have the comforts of home and the service of a hotel. Each chalet has 3 staff to look after you and ensure you have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. They include a trained chef and two chalet hosts.  T
There is a choice of a full English breakfast or continental if preferred.On your return from the ski slopes, mulled wine, tea and cakes are provided.
Dinner is a 4 course gourmet meal with drinks and canapés beforehand and is followed by chocolates and coffee. The chalet's emphasis is on high quality ingredients, freshly prepared – taking the best from French and British cuisine.

The wines to accompany your meals are French, selected with great care, always vintage, and often discovered from surprising corners of France. The chalet owners feel that good wine represents a vital element of a great meal, and their wine has been chosen with that in mind. 

 

Activities

Take a horse- drawn carriage ride – clamber aboard a finely dressed horse – snuggle amongst the blankets in the back of the sleigh and see the sights of Chamonix on a horse-drawn tour. 

Try a helicopter flight. Relax and enjoy the stunning views as you fly over the snow-capped mountain tops, glaciers and alpine forests of the Haute Savoie.

Hot-air ballooning - the take-off point is in nearby Praz-sur-Arly, less than an hour's drive from Chamonix. 

Husky sledding in Chamonix – Take charge of excitable husky dogs.

Ice-skating - Chamonix has an excellent ice rink – great for days you decide not to ski.

Swimming – There is a 25m long indoor pool at the Richard Bozon Sports Centre which also features a separate children's pool with bubble jets and a water slide. For the summer months there is also an outdoor pool which is surrounded by sunbathing terraces and a children's splash pool.

Walking - It's very easy to discover the resort on foot or with pushchair!

Parc de Loisirs – This is open in the summer and winter with different attractions open, dependent on the season. The new attraction at the Chamonix Parc de Loisirs is a cross between a roller coaster and a sledge on a 1300m track featuring plenty of twists and turns.
