The chalet: the ideal accommodation for ski holidays

Updated: Jul 15, 2021


If you want to ski during your holiday in Haute-Savoie, we recommend that you rent a chalet. And why not in Cordon! This small resort with its incredible charm and this type of accommodation offer many advantages which made us fall in love with it. We suggest you discover the advantages through this article.


Accommodation close to the ski slopes


Traditional chalets are generally farms built in the middle of the mountains. In order to take the herds up to higher altitudes in the summer, the farm had a second alpine chalet. They are therefore like watchtowers from which you can appreciate the magic of the surrounding landscape. In the last few decades, these farms have been renovated and transformed into homes, so you can enjoy the view of the peaks and relax more easily. On top of that, they are closer to the ski slopes than any other form of rental accommodation for tourists. This makes them the best accommodation option for a ski holiday.


Cordon, a cosy setting for a ski holiday


Most of the chalets are equipped with wood-burning fireplaces, the "bournes". So, after skiing for miles, you can warm up by the fireplace. Some of the chalets located near Mont Blanc in the Haute-Savoie department are also equipped with luxury facilities such as a Jacuzzi and a private sauna.

When you choose to rent a chalet in Cordon, you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking landscape. During your stay, you can also opt for a relaxing massage in front of the Mont Blanc. With the proximity of Megève, many experienced practitioners offer exceptional "well-being" treatments. It should be noted, however, that each of these options must be included in your budget. You will need to consider your own budget in order to choose a well-located chalet offering these services. There are many of them with different architectural styles (cladding, logs, beams) from one village to another, the differences are significant.


Comfortable accommodation for the whole family


In a chalet, you are safe from prying eyes during your holiday. No one will disturb the peace and quiet of your family holiday. So you can happily enjoy being away from the daily grind. By choosing to rent a chalet in Cordon, you will enjoy the time to be with your family in a privileged place.

It should also be noted that these holiday chalets have spacious rooms. Everyone should therefore be able to feel at ease during their stay for a ski holiday. In addition, you will be able to enjoy pleasant moments to strengthen family ties.


Things to do before renting a chalet in Cordon


Don't forget that in a chalet, the household chores are taken care of by the holidaymakers themselves. So, before you move into your rental, you should make sure you have everything you need for your stay. Take the time to check that end-of-stay cleaning is included in the service. Do you have to make the beds on arrival, do you have to bring your own towels and tea towels? Do you have to buy firewood for the fireplace? Is the WiFi connection efficient? Don't worry, there are rentals where absolutely everything is included, even the bathrobes!


It is advisable to choose your chalet carefully. In particular, it should be close to shops and other establishments offering basic services. This will make it easier for you to do your shopping or to react quickly in case of an emergency.


Finally, you will need to pack well. If you do not choose a chalet, make sure you take only the bare minimum, otherwise you risk being overcrowded. Once you have made all these arrangements, you can then take your luggage to the heart of the mountains.
