Most of us who love log homes can only ever dream of owning one, but quite often enjoy a trip into nature for vacations. It is a way of tasting the lifestyle that comes with living in a wooden house.
Flagstone is a large log home located in Chamonix - a ski village situated in the mountains of the French Alps. Chamonix is renowned throughout Europe as one of the premier locations for skiing and mountaineering due to having one of the highest mountains on the continent: Mont Blanc.
This upscale resort town offers upscale homes to suit. Flagstone is a large chalet with six bedrooms - all with en-suite bathrooms - and includes a hot tub, a heated swimming pool, a cinema, and a sauna. The finishes inside are outstanding. The home is listed for vacation rental on Chamonix Ski Chalets and is a perfect taster to the French mountain life. Shall we take a look at this chalet?
Situated on the banks of the river Arve, facing the Glacier d'Argentiere, the cabin offers quick and easy access to a number of the surrounding slopes.
The cabin's interior is awash with natural light thanks to the two walls of windows. The main living area has an open concept, encompassing the sitting room, kitchen, and dining area.
The cozy sitting room has comfortable furniture which is perfect for falling into after a satisfying day on the slopes. The wood-burning fire is a real toasty treat.
The ultra modern kitchen has eye-catching sleek finishes. Numerous sliding glass doors lead to a deep terrace which encircles the house.
The deck area has plenty of places to relax and enjoy the outstanding mountain panorama.
Back inside the house, we find a slightly raised section at the back of the home next to the main living room.
This cozy nook is ideal for those who want to enjoy the peace of a good book or catch a quick nap.
We begin our tour of the six bedrooms in the upstairs, where we find a large, modern room lit by a huge skylight.
All of the bedrooms have attached bathrooms which are finished to exceptional standards of contemporary interior design.
While some wash facilities have tubs, this one has two walk-in showers.
We love this clever use of a rock as a basin. Nice touch!
Each bedroom in the house is different. Each bathroom also has its own features and style.
This one has a cool, round basin and attractive pebble-style wall decor.
This modern house has spared no expense with the decorations. It is exactly the kind of home you would expect to find in a high-end ski resort.
With six bedrooms in total, the house can sleep up to twelve adults.
With each room acting as a private suite, the home can be as sociable or as private as your mood dictates.
Fit for a large party, the house offers numerous amenities for when you return from a log day of skiing.
The hot tub on the deck is a good place to enjoy the 360-degree spectacle of famous mountains.
The house has access to a heated swimming pool with comfortable lounging furniture.
There is even a cinema room for those days where you need to rest.
Took one too many bumps on the slopes? Warm your tired muscles in the sauna!
There we have it, a French chalet in the mountains. Beautiful!
