Combining bold architecture and a dynamic interior style with a knockout location, Chalet Cragganmore is one of the most striking contemporary homes in the French Alps. Voted No. 1 by The Times as the coolest chalet on the slopes for 2012. This superb six bedroom chalet offers the very best views in The Alps and a unique boutique interior. There are no antlers, gingham blankets instead you will find textures, contemporary designer furniture and colours that work in both summer and winter, all of which have been carefully chosen.

This six bedroom chalet has been designed to soak in the dramatic mountain views with extensive glazing, and with a palette of materials that echoes the majestic setting, including exposed timber finishes and rough-hewn natural stone. Every room in this house exudes comfort and exquisite style, combining bespoke lighting features with a mix of contemporary furnishings and modern classics. Cragganmore's incredible eco credentials include triple glazing, superb insulation and a geothermal heating system supported by L'Arve River that flows behind the house. The hot tub is heated in the same way and adds a touch of luxury to the chalet, perfect for late night stargazing.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
