Built in the early 1800’s, Chalet Cannelle was once an original Abondance Valley farmhouse. The original building and many of its features are still intact, but the 200-year-old farmhouse and cowshed have been lovely renovated. Today, Chalet Cannelle is a luxury catered ski chalet in the winter and an inviting bed and breakfast, or Chambres d’hôtes, in the summer.
LUXURY SKI CHALET & MOUNTAIN B&BAlpine style meets contemporary design
The original farmhouse features are combined with a contemporary interior for an alpine style that is anything but the usual mountain kitsch. Vintage pieces and original artwork provide the chalet with unique décor, and much of what you find in the chalet was created or upcycled by us, Lorraine & Andy.
Make yourself at home in our spacious living area. The open floor plan is warm and inviting, so you can find your perfect cosy spot. Large sofas and vintage leather armchairs are great for enjoying a glass of wine or settling in with a book. Get a glimpse of the barn that once inhabited the space with the double height ceiling and exposed beams. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide an outstanding view of the glorious Mont de Grange and the Abondance Valley.
I find the chalet so welcoming, you always feel at home and relaxed as soon as you walk in. (Rosie Tucker)
Rest and relax after a active day of alpine activities in your private chalet bedroom. Each room comes with an ensuite and features a unique mountain style. Fine-quality Egyptian cotton linens are the perfect place to rest and sumptuous towels, bathrobes & toiletries will help you get comfortable in no time. The bathrooms have a mix of walk-in showers and baths to suit everyone.
Enjoy meals made from scratch at the large communal dining table. You will have the perfect view of our open kitchen, where Andy spends his days making all manner of creations for your enjoyment. From pasta to ice cream, and everything in-between, all the food that we serve is made from scratch by hand with only the best ingredients.
THE HOT TUB
A day packed with skiing adventures calls for a soak in our hot tub. The stylish outdoor setting is reminiscent of a hot spring in the snow, and you can enjoy relaxing while surrounded by beautiful mountains. Available during winter stays, the hot tub is the perfect for relaxing those hard working ski muscles.
The chalet’s private garden surrounds the chalet with mountain views in all directions. In the summer, you can find peace and sunshine on the terrace surrounded by plum trees or in the mossy corner. Or perhaps take a wander through our organic vegetable garden. In the winter, children can safely play, build snowmen or sledge into the field behind the chalet.
THE MOO MEZZANINE
Children have their own special place at Chalet Cannelle. The Moo Mezzanine is stocked with movies, video games, board games, toys, and more. Children can use the den to chill out, colour, make a craft, and play in a parents-free zone. No need to worry though, because they are still close enough to ensure safety but far enough away for you to enjoy some quiet time.
There are plenty of post ski or hike activities at Chalet Cannelle, whether you want to relax or play, there are entertainment options are available for everyone. Grab one of our many books from the library, play a game or cards, enjoy the Nintendo Wii and Xbox, watch a movie or Netflix, or get competitive on the Fußball table.
