Delightfully dressed in local "vieux bois" (seasoned old wood), this chalet of around 160sqm, set over 4 levels, is in the prime location within the village of Béranger, just a few minutes' drive from the ski lifts.
Unassuming from the front approach, it is actually an imposing structure when seen from below, which sleeps (currently) up to 8 people, with a possibility to increase this capacity.
Entering from the front of the chalet, it almost appears to be a bungalow, tastefully clad in attractive old wood to complement the beautiful local stone.
The ground floor houses the farmhouse-feeling kitchen, light-drenched dining area and welcoming living room with fireplace. The first balcony is accessed from next to the dining table, giving incredible views out over the local mountains. Given the relief of the terrain here, there is no possibility of these views being interrupted.
There is also a shower room and WC on this floor, along with storage space for shoes, coats etc.
The top mezzanine floor currently houses a bedroom and another sleeping area with a sofa bed. These areas could be retained for sleeping quarters or conceivably become an office/study/snug etc.
The lower ground floor is where you will find 2 further large bedrooms, through one of which is the second balcony access. Each of these bedrooms has a decent-sized walk-in wardrobe, which could certainly be converted into a shower room, if necessary. There is also the large main family bathroom on this level.
There is one further level of this property, which is the basement level. Currently, this houses the oil tank and associated boiler for the central heating, the hot water tanks, the laundry machines, a wine cellar, a second fridge and chest freezer as well as lots of space for storage. This area could certainly become either more sleeping areas for the chalet, or indeed a self-contained apartment to provide a level of income for the owners, as it has a separate entrance to the rest of the property.
- Private parking space in front of the property
- Small shed for storing firewood, sports equipment etc
The village can be accessed on skis via an off-piste itinerary (in fact a few different ones) from the top of the Meribel, when the snow is sufficient.
In the summer, the village provides a fantastic base for walking, mountain biking and all the other activities associated with living in the mountains. There is solid rental potential here as well so you have the option to rent out when you’re not using it yourself.
The nearest ski resort of Saint Martin de Belleville has some of the best runs in the Three Valleys, including the run called Jerusalem, which is a favourite of many skiers. The Belleville valley is a gem, with sensible prices, good service, fantastic scenery and great skiing. It’s also home to Les Menuires at 1800m and Val Thorens at 2300m which is the highest resort in Europe - indeed the Belleville Valley consists of 300km of pistes, so actually half of the ski area of the 3 Valleys. Just over the mountain are the glitzy resorts of Meribel and Courchevel.
The Three Valleys link together to form the largest ski area in the world with over 600kms of on-piste skiing and a great variety of off piste skiing itineraries.
