Attention to detail and a very very central location are two of Chalet Amadouvier’s finest qualities. This Verbier ski chalet is situated on the Chemin de Plenadzeu which is about a hundred and fifty metres from the lift station at Medran and a further hundred metres from the bustling Place Centrale. The location is superb as it offers privacy and quiet yet is still on the doorstep of the nightlife, shops and restaurants. Amadouvier occupies the second and third floors of newly built timber-clad residences that ooze alpine quality.
Inside the chalet and the first thing that’ll strike you in the living space is the dominating open fireplace and characterful furnishings. The living room is an adult-friendly escape with the television subtly hidden away under the stairs. The kitchen is divided from the main living area by cupboards although an opening allows for talking between the rooms. There is a gigantic wrap around balcony that is shared by the open plan living areas and the master bedroom. It also has some very pleasant outdoor teak furniture for al fresco dining (seating up to ten.)
Now you’re probably thinking this sounds great but what about when we want to let our hair loose and relax a little more, well upstairs is a second entertaining room that houses two large comfortable sofas, a snooker table that can convert to a table tennis table, computer workstations (two of them) and double doors opening to a balcony. Usually games rooms are found in basements but this one is high up, with great views and is very bright. It’s the ultimate place for teenagers and children to hang out but it’s normally the adults who stake claim to it for a few after dinner drinks and games.
Bedrooms. Well they’ve got White Company linens, incredibly comfortable mattresses and goose down pillows and duvets. The master bedroom has balcony access, a king-sized bed and en-suite bathroom with separate shower, there’s also a second master that has an en-suite with integrated shower. There’s a twin room with en-suite bathroom next to the upper living space and this is dubbed the ‘safari’ room with another twin that has restricted head room accessed through it, the latter of these is ideal for children from around six to twelve years old and has a small play area. These Finally there is a four bedded bunk room with separate shower room. All in all that’s five bedrooms, two bathrooms and three shower rooms sleeping up to twelve guests.
