Chalet Iona, Saint Jean d’Aulps
- 5 ensuite bedrooms
- Sleeps 13 people
- Luxury chalet with stunning views
The only thing not perfect about Chalet Iona is that it doesn’t belong to us!
Chalet Iona is ideal for families and groups looking for a luxury retreat for their ski holiday. On the slopes of Mont d’Evian, it’s a lovely quiet location, away from the resort hustle & bustle, with breathtaking views of St Jean d’Aulps village and the Grande Terche ski area. It’s just a 5 minute drive to these pistes or 10 minutes to Ardent to access the rest of the Portes du Soleil.
Chalet Iona is a stunning 5 bedroom ski chalet that was completed in 2007. It was built and designed as a family home and is decorated and furnished to an exceptionally high standard. The chalet is laid out over 3 floors and offers spacious 5 star accommodation and breathtaking views. It’s your new home away from home in the mountains.
The large open plan living & dining area gives a vast sense of space that’s further enhanced by the floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides of the room. Light floods in and you can easily take advantage of the magnificent views. Sinking into the deep squishy sofas with a steaming hot chocolate, the toughest choice you’ll face is whether to gaze into the roaring log fire or out at the incredible mountain panorama. There’s also TV with French & English channels and WiFi.
There is a large dining area with seating for 12 people adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is very spacious and fully equipped with all you’ll need, and beautiful granite worktops. With wood throughout and beautiful exposed beams, Chalet Iona has a traditional Alpine chalet feel, coupled with a sense of space and homeliness that is often lacking in ski accommodation.
A new addition for 2020 is the TV room on the ground floor. This is a great space for kids and adults alike, to relax and catch up on the latest films on Netflix.
For spring skiers and the summer holiday makers, the chalet has a large sun deck which opens off the kitchen, and balconies which wrap around the chalet. This is the perfect spot for an après-ski glass of bubbly admiring the magnificent views over the valley and of the surrounding mountains. As the chalet has a south facing elevated position, it benefits from sunshine well into the evening in the summer months.
