What is a traditional chalet?

The smell of the inimitable wood, the crackling of the fireplace, the sound of the wooden floor after a hike or a day of skiing. this is the very essence of the traditional mountain chalet, which we aim to convey through our accommodation. Synonymous with sharing and togetherness, the traditional chalet has an unrivalled charm and will delight all mountain lovers. Whether you are looking for a holiday with family or friends, a traditional chalet is an ideal choice for a peaceful escape. 

The authenticity and intimacy of a traditional chalet will satisfy those who want to get away from it all and immerse themselves completely in the world that is so specific to the mountains.

What makes the essence of a traditional mountain chalet? With a team made up of local children, imbued with the Alpine traditions of Savoie and Haute-Savoie, Cimalpes offers you here its vision of the mountain chalet and directs you to those who meet the essential criteria of traditional construction:

  • The materials used: wood, stone, slate. Contrary to conventional wisdom, a traditional Savoyard chalet is never entirely built of wood, it always relies on a first level of stone. In the same way, the cover does not use tile but slate. Cimalpes offers here mountain chalets that respect these rules and guarantee you an authentic stay.
  • The furnishing: once again authenticity primes, that is why you will find in your Cimalpes ski chalet the whole palette of traditional Savoyard furniture handcrafted in pine or oak: rustic tables, benches, chests of drawers, closets, country beds. The only concessions allowed are in the service of your comfort.
  • Decoration: old snowshoes and skis, wooden sleds, farm saws, traditional utensils, and fabrics tell the story of Alpine traditions on the walls of your chalet. This atmosphere is enhanced in the living rooms by the presence of the stone fireplace dressed in wood. Immersion guaranteed!
  • The equipment: your traditional chalet must also guarantee you a comfortable and warm experience, that is why you will find modern and functional equipment, integrated with the environment created by our decorators. An example? The hot tub, which gives you all the charm of a spa and which benefits from a wooden construction with undeniable charm!
  • Comfort: if the identity of the mountain chalet is respected, Cimalpes thinks of your comfort and offers you chalets with lift, laundry room, bar, ensuite bedrooms, spacious balconies and terraces, sauna, bar. Browse our Alpine Tradition collection of traditional chalets and find one that will meet your needs in every way.
