The location of the chalet is unsurpassed – we are five minutes away from the main street with its bakeries and shops, restaurants, cinema etc...and just steps from cycling, hiking and ski trails. Nature abounds in this region and in Summer it is wonderful to relax in a deckchair on the balcony, watching the eagles soar across the valley in search of prey as the bells of the dairy cows sound out while the herd graze the upper grasslands that are snow covered pistes in the winter months.

Chalet Maigret is a modern chalet built of wood in the traditional style giving it a classic mountain look. It blends perfectly into the picturesque village of Le Chinaillon, the upper area of Le Grand Bornand resort. Inside, the wooden walls and the massive timber beams give it an air of solidity and warmth. It is fully centrally heated with underfloor heating on the main living floor.

This luxury chalet is extremely well equipped and spacious (over 1,200 sq. ft), and comes equipped with a sauna/sanarium (blend between a sauna and steam room) that is ideal for relaxing at the end of a day’s cycling, skiing, hiking etc. It can be programmed to be ready upon your return at the push of a button!

Large interior folding doors connect with Chalet Clouseau to accommodate parties of up to twenty with ease, when rented as Chalet Maigret Clouseau.

The first floor is the heart of the chalet and is made up of a large open plan room with separate areas for cooking, eating and relaxing. There is also a cloakroom and toilet.

The fully fitted kitchen has a high quality induction hob and extraction hood, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Nespresso machine and professional cooking utensils. It has ample storage space for all your provisions. We have tried to provide as much equipment as possible, and you will find everything from a pierrade machine to weighing scales for easy baking.

There are French windows that open out to the south-facing deck at the back making it ideal for sun bathing all year round, with beautiful views across and down the valley.

The dining area has a large bespoke table and chairs with matching sets of glasses, crockery and cutlery for 10 people. The solid wood table can be extended or contracted and allows total flexibility to maximise space in the living area.

The sitting room is well furnished with comfortable modern sofas (brand new in 2018) centred around a wood burning stove (logs are provided at no extra cost). There is a large flat screen TV with Freesat for English channels, a Bluray/DVD player, broadband internet as well as a good selection of books and games. A telephone is provided and comes with a special package that allows unlimited calls to UK (and most European) landlines.
