Penthouse Caribou is extremely spacious, larger than many alpine chalets (350m2) occupying the top 2 floors of the whole building, accessed via a lift to a private entrance. Stunning views of the mountains from all windows with many rooms offering balconies overlooking the Cret Beni pistes and the majestic Mont de Grange.  

There are 3 bedrooms and bathrooms on the main floor and 2 on the top with 3 of the bathrooms being en-suite and two private bathrooms. All 5 bedroom suites are spacious and modern in décor, furnished with quality beds and linen. 

Large patio doors open onto sunny, south facing balconies overlooking the mountains and pistes. From here you can watch torchlit descents on the piste or even take part in one yourself!  

The kitchen is fully equipped for your stay with range hob and oven, fridge freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher.  As well as the kitchen table and bar, the dining space has a large table with seating for 16 people. 

The Penthouse has a large fireplace surrounded by comfortable sofas, and a supply of logs perfect for relaxing in the evenings. 

The 2nd large living area consists of a mezzanine games rooms with a full sized pool table, 50" flat screen TV, cinema area with DVD player and satellite TV.  WiFi is provided free and throughout the apartment. 

Plentiful parking, an extra large heated boot room to store all of your equipment and ensure everything is dry for the next day 

**  Bed linen, towels and cleaning are included in the price  ** 


The Penthouse is perfect for skiing and other activities in the Portes Du Soleil.  The closest ski lifts are Cret Beni and Pantiaz, with the latter linking to the rest of the PDS (650km of pistes).  Both these areas are wonderful themselves and are much quieter. 

If you prefer, the main lifts of Chatel linking to Avoriaz are a 10 and 15 minute drive away. 

Penthouse Caribou is centrally located in the authentic French village, La Chapelle D'Abondance, walking distance from a delightful artisan bakery, mini market, micro brewery and several fantastic restaurants. The main supermarket in the valley is a ten minute car or bus ride away. 

The nearest airport is Geneva (90 minute drive)
