on 21 September 2020

What makes the chalets holidays so unique? How is it beneficial when you are staying with family or friends? Discover the reasons to favor this type of accommodation during your holidays in the mountains...

A successful ski resort holiday depends not only on the weather but also on the quality of your accommodation! Here are the main reasons to choose a chalet rental for a holiday with friends:

L'authenticité - Blog Cimalpes

1. The space

Choose a property which appeals to your taste

The choice is yours: cosy, contemporary, colourful, minimalist… An icon of alpine culture, a chalet (or chalet style apartment) offers a real change of scene and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Mountain charm par excellence.

L'intimité - Blog Cimalpes


Make yourself at home!

Stay in your dressing gown all day if you wish and use the pool or jacuzzi whenever you please. Take your time over long lazy meals, put the kids to bed and continue the party... You have your own private space to feel at home and spend time with family or friends under the same roof. Create your own ambience - quiet and relaxed or lively and festive, the choice is yours.

Des activités variées - Blog Cimalpes

A variety of activities

Heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, massage room... The chalet takes care of you and the advantage here is still the intimacy with your loved ones and the fact that you can bathe at any time of the day or evening!

A bit of exercise is also suitable for those who wish to keep in shape with fitness rooms! While some people let themselves go or do a workout, others can relax in front of a film in a cinema that has nothing to envy the crowded rooms of multiplex cinemas!

The little ones will be happy to enjoy the games and toys in the family chalets!

Une solution pratique et avantageuse - Blog Cimalpes

A practical and advantageous solution

The more the merrier, the more we laugh!

A chalet is always financially interesting because it is usually rented to several people! Several bedrooms, several bathrooms, large rooms where you can meet with friends or family around a convivial Savoyard meal with a cosy fireplace. You are sure not to step on your feet and to better enjoy the pleasure of being together!

Les services - Blog Cimalpes

The services

What if you had the advantages of the hotel business in real estate?

Change of linen ; cleaning ; delivery of groceries ; services of a private chef or private driver ; airport transfer by taxi ; babysitting ; ski equipment/ski pass rental ; booking of a private instructor or coach ; yoga ; massages ; activities in the resort... All these services are offered by some estate agencies according to your wishes and the level of your accommodation.

You can even benefit from a welcome at the agency, or directly at the property, with a local team who will inform you about the places and events that are not to be missed. At Cimalpes, the hotel service and concierge teams are always just five minutes from your accommodation, to intervene quickly and provide a hotel service for the little onions.

Why choose to rent?

Why do more and more holidaymakers prefer to rent a chalet or flat rather than book a hotel room when travelling in the mountains?
