Situated on a large plot at the western end of the Chamonix valley, Chalet Peter Pan is considered one of the most beautiful properties in the region. This elegantly restored Savoyarde farmhouse offers breathtaking views of the Mont Blanc massif and a degree of privacy seldom experienced in Alpine resorts. The property sits on the edge of a nature reserve, at the foot of some of the best hiking trails in the region, yet only a few minutes drive from the local ski lifts.
The Main Chalet comfortably sleeps three families or 10+ adults in four double bedrooms and a hayloft dormitory. Further accommodation is available—another seven bedrooms—in a separate guest Annexe. The living spaces are large, but cosy, and incorporate many of the property’s original features.
Chalet Peter Pan is available to rent all year round and our highly experienced management team looks forward to arranging a memorable holiday for you.
Chalet Peter Pan was originally built by Piedmontais hill farmers between 1775 and 1777. It was a working farm for the best part of the next 200 years, before becoming an auberge in the 1940s.
During World War II, the chalet served as a hostel for a large number of child refugees, evacuated from the large towns. Inspired by the happy stories of the house’s young wartime guests, many of whom returned to visit after the war, the auberge was named Peter Pan after JM Barrie’s character who did not want to grow up.
“Le Peter Pan” continued to be a much-loved local hotel and restaurant until the Bochatay family retired in the late 1990s. The current owner spent much of his own childhood holidaying with his family there. In the early 2000s, the property was sold to a Dutchman and his Belgian wife who lovingly renovated the property over several years.
