La Datcha


Description & Overview

5 Bedroom chalet in Megève, Haute Savoie

“La Datcha is a rare gem – a beautiful marriage of rustic charm and modern mid-century design in Megève. Like a Bond villain’s secret lair, the chalet’s 200 year old wood is cosy, yet dramatic, and is the perfect hideaway after a day in the mountains.”

The property is located on the elegant Route de la Cote 2000 and is conveniently located within 5 minutes drive of the Mont d’Arbois and Rochebrune ski slopes. The ski bus also stops outside the property. There is also direct access to a cross country ski run towards the back of the property.
