Located in the tranquil resort of Chatel, Grange au Merle was beautifully renovated from an original farmhouse into a luxury chalet, representing the perfect accommodation for a luxury summer holiday in France. Accommodating up to 15 guests, the property is enhanced by a classic wooden interior design, giving the ultimate alpine retreat atmosphere.
Large floor to ceiling windows welcome you to the first floor of the chalet, where an open-plan living area results in the perfect place to put your feet up and relax whilst admiring the stunning mountain background. A comfortable seating area with a wood burning fireplace creates a cosy setting for those chillier evenings in, ideal to socialise with your group and relax with a glass of wine.
On the other side of the living area a classy dining table, suitable for 10 people, awaits you for sociable meal times with a stunning alpine backdrop, ideal to catch up with one another after a long day of hiking in Châtel. Nearby, a modern fully-equipped kitchen will allow the cook of the group to put on the chef's hat and prepare homemade meals, while having fun and enjoying some quality time with the whole group. For additional convenience, a separate 'chef's table' is positioned behind the kitchen, resulting ideal for a family travelling with children who wish to have their meals early.
Stepping outside, through the large patio doors, you will find the spacious wrap-around balcony. Take advantage of the south-facing spot to enjoy long days of sunshine while admiring the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and village. Alternatively, make use of the outdoor furniture in the chalet's terrace and enjoy alfresco meals during the warmer months of the season.

While for the little ones there is plenty of space where to have fun in the sun in the alpine playhouse 'Crystal de Neige', situated in the chalet's private garden, or play games in the evening in the TV snug area.
