CHALET LE MOULIN, Mieussy, Haute-savoie

France - - Where To Stay -

If you are look­ing for an in­ti­mate win­ter hol­i­day for the fam­ily, rent­ing an en­tire prop­erty might be the best option. This tra­di­tional Alpine chalet, a mile above the vil­lage of Mieussy, has three dou­ble bed­rooms, two new bath­rooms and a modern gran­ite kitchen, and en­joys breath­tak­ing views over the Samoëns Val­ley from its south-facing ter­race.

The at­mos­phere is lux­u­ri­ous but cosy, with wood-pan­elling, log fires and large rooms. It is the small de­tails that make it more of a ‘home from home’ than a sim­ple hol­i­day rental: own­ers Nigel and Irene pro­vide sledges for guests to bor­row, as well as a raclette maker and a library.

All you need for a self-cater­ing stay is within a five-minute drive. The ski bus stops at the bot­tom of the road, tak­ing you to the 60 kilo­me­tres of slopes in the nearby Praz de Lys-som­mand re­sort; a fam­ily-friendly and qui­eter al­ter­na­tive to other win­ter des­ti­na­tions in the area. Sleeps up to eight, from £850 a week. Tel: 0778 570 6212 chaletle­
