Chalet Bouquetin - Flaine, France
Chalet Bouquetin is in the much sought after Residence le Refuge du Golf, a small complex of high quality chalets and apartments, just above the Hameau area in Flaine. The Bouquetin and its sister apartment chalet, Chalet Ibex, are run exclusively within one separate building, and offer commanding views over the snow bowl of Flaine from the south-facing balconies.
Our chalets are conveniently reached by interior lift and covered walkway from just opposite the main reception area and this is where the ski and boot room is located.
Chalet Bouquetin is run independently with a dedicated host and its own individual entrance, but along with Chalet Ibex is ideal for larger groups who may want to occupy both. The accommodation is built over 4 floors into the mountainside, with many south-facing windows and balconies so the rooms are both light and airy. Each chalet is decorated in a very modern and contemporary style with wooden floors and rugs, comfy sofas and a flat screen TV in the lounge and en suite facilities in all the bedrooms. The view from the lounge balcony is particularly spectacular, looking over the magnificent runs of the Flaine snow bowl all around.
The main reception building within the complex houses a bar-restaurant with panoramic terrace, open in the evenings. There is also a swimming pool and fitness area, free for the use by guests and a spa area for guests aged 16 and over with sauna, steam room and whirlpool. A ticket for 5 sessions to the spa costs approx €40 and can be purchased locally. Beauty treatments and massages are also available locally at an additional charge.
There is access to the skiing via a pisted track, just 2 minutes’ from the ski and boot room and really only recommended for intermediate skiers and above. We also have a complimentary minibus service to take you to Flaine Forêt every morning and collect you at the end of the day and there is also a free resort shuttle bus which runs every 10-12 minutes from 8.15am to 6.15pm with the nearest stop just 2 minute’s walk from the ski and boot room.
We are sure that the style and quality of chalets Bouquetin and Ibex, together with their leisure facilities, will prove to be an appealing combination for skiers and boarders.
