The entrance to No. 8 CLUB Bellevarde, with steps opposite up onto the Santons piste, is discrete and deceiving. Step inside the modest façade and you lose yourself in a huge chalet that cascades down the mountain side over four floors looking onto forest and mountain stream. The front door opens into the stunning open plan living and dining area, comfortably and elegantly furnished with squashy sofas, log fire, vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows boasting spectacular views of forest and mountain. You will feel as though you have opened the door to Dr Who's Tardis and been transported to Narnia (excuse the mixed metaphors!) There is a large balcony, ideal for soaking up the afternoon sun.
You will be underwhelmed, sorry, (but delighted when you arrive) by the pictures that we have chosen to show here to represent the chalet, (come back in December for up-to-date imagery) simply because we have nothing in our current collection to do justice to the grandeur of the bedrooms, the amazing views and the wonderful indoor pool. The plans don't lie though, and the architects amongst you will recognise that the 30 square metres per guest is 20% larger than anything else we operate in the Alps.
The lower three floors are accessed by lift with 7 en suite bedrooms, two of which have additional bunk beds, charged at half the adult price, all have space for a cot and the master bedroom boasts a spectacular in-room bath and dressing room. All the rooms have balconies overlooking the forest and stream. On the lower level you will also find the private indoor swimming pool, sauna and hammam, and for those with energy still to burn after a day on the hill, a small gym.
