If you want to escape the hotels in Chomonix’s town centre, but are less keen to sacrifice the luxury element, this little spot in the woods is for you. Situated in the Les Bossons area of the Chamonix valley, Amazon Creek offers both catered and self-catered accommodation for no less than ten across five beautifully designed bedrooms. All come with ensuite bathrooms to avoid long queues for the toilet, while a spacious living area, fully-equipped kitchen, cinema room with DVD library, spa with sunken Jacuzzi and dining area with views out over Aiguille du Midi finish things off nicely.
Adding to the chalet’s cachet is the al fresco barbecue area, which is the perfect place to host an apres-ski party on. A Champagne reception on arrival and a personal concierge service will ensure you’re kept in the manner to which you’ve undoubtedly become accustomed.
