Chalet Grand Sarire is a beautiful chalet that benefits from a huge open plan living room that combines with a large outdoor wooden deck to create the perfect entertaining space. The interiors are cool and calming and the chalet benefits from a peaceful location in the old village of le fornet without compromising on access to the ski area where you can ski back to the door.

Perfect for families or groups of friends
If you are looking for a large chalet with the flexibility to change sizes of your group or have more private spaces then chalet grand sarire is a fantastic option. This impressive 350 sqm property was completed in 2010 in time for our first winter season in val d’sere and we think its pretty special. Sarire means narrow lane in savoyard and this is where you will find the chalet, in one of the most beautiful parts of the village which is becoming more and more exclusive each year. The chalet has spectacular views both up to the head of the national park but also down to Bellevarde with impressive vistas of the Le Face downhill run which is often lit up at night. If you love peace and quiet then Grand Sarire is a great option without losing quick access to the mountain. Nestled next to a larch forest there is a huge deck with the perfect space for children to play safely and you can ski back to here from leaving the blue mangard, and black foret runs. An off piste skiers paradise, the property gives direct access to the famous areas of the grand vallon and col pers. Access to the chalet is over the stunning le fornet bridge and the isere river. The village withholds its wonderful charm and is easily the prettiest area of val d’sere as well as being the highest. The chalet is often deep in snow for most of the winter and beginners and children also will be pleased to learn that in two quick lifts you will find gently sloping glacier skiing with unrivalled snow at 3300m.
Chalet Grand Sarire is fresh and contemporary and gives an overriding feeling of spaciousness. The property is broken down into two main spaces, one is the main chalet which houses the main living and dining areas and five bedrooms for twelve people. The second is a cool and well designed apartment with two bedrooms and a further bathroom and its only living space. Beautifully finished inside and out in light grey vanoise stone and mountain larch the two areas blend together well. There are two main entrances, one for the main chalet and one for the apartment and they are just three steps apart, with your complimentary slippers you wont find the transition cumbersome. The main entrance is on the ground level where you will find a heated ski room for the chalet with good storage and boot warmers. Here you will also find 2 covered parking spots, a rarity in the valley, if you require more its a large garage so please just ask. On entering the main level of the chalet the sheer size of the living and dining space comes into view. With a length of about 20m this space is great for entertaining large groups for cocktail parties or just giving yourself a generous area for your family or group.
The chalet has a minimalist feel and the dining table was sourced from Paris and conveys simple clean lines and can accommodate 16 people with the addition of a further table enabling the whole group to eat together. The lounge has a couple of different seating areas in front of a lovely open fire and a iMac work station. Looking out on to the large deck there is a cedar wood hot tub where often mountain ibex or chamois can be seen.
The central wrought iron stairwell leads up to 3 bedrooms on the next floor one contains adult sized reclaimed wood bunks and a walk in wardrobe and bathroom. The other two bedrooms share a large monsoon shower room and toilet. Ascending to the top floor the mountains come more into view and you will find a large master suite with ensuite bathroom and a smaller king or twin ensuite room with a large terrace and west facing view down to the main village. The apartment is equally well sized and the bedrooms sit neatly together, the extra living space here often works well with families as the children can have their own space to relax and watch movies or play games. The rooms feel on the large size and many contain bathrooms with natural stone sourced from different parts of the country. Also four of the bathrooms contain full sized deep bath tubs which are becoming rarer in the resort as size of chalets are compromised.
