Le Chatox

See the video of  how Le Chatox was born and things to see and do…

Light and space was the main ingredient we wanted for guests when Le Chatox was built in 2009. Heating is via a wood burning stove with logs supplied and under-floor heating to keep you toasty in winter. There are radiators in all bedrooms and bathrooms. Hot water is heated via solar panels in the roof. There are 4 bedrooms, one chatox-interior-2double, three twin.  The lounge has the most amazing view out over Mt Colombier and in summer the huge terrace balcony becomes an additional living area for BBQ’s and entertaining. Board games, chess and card games for children as well as the TV/DVD player and video library for wet play or quite nights in. There is a collection of books which we plan to add to and local maps and info on what’s on in the area to plan your itinerary.

  Your view from the terrace balcony !

Binoculars and bird/butterfly books are easy to find on the shelves for quieter moments and a telescope is available on the balcony for star gazing if you can figure how to use it !

There is a comprehensive ‘Chatox’ book on things to see and do and we encourage you to add to this for future guests. The open plan living area is large and with 8 of us there last summer, we never felt overcrowded or on top of each other.

The L sofa and double sofa opposite (not pictured) seat 8 comfortably and there’s also the rocking chair and guitar if you fancy a strum and sing along after dinner and wine! There’s a patio to the rear with garden and sun loungers to while away the hazy heat of the alpine summer. BBQ is in the cave for use on the patio or balcony.

The kitchen is fully equipped as Wendy is very particular so you should find all you need ! A glass cabinet is there to make sure your drinks look as well as taste good and a drinks cabinet is for those ‘oh no we’ve run out moments…’ There’s also a Gaggia coffee maker if you’re so inclined…

In the ‘cave’ below we have tennis, table tennis, badminton, volley ball, beach equipment all for your use should you need it. The utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer if you need them. Our bikes are pictured but we have contacts for hire should you need one (see summer page) and we have two new electric bikes for hire which are fabulous to help you on the hills!

There is no wi-fi but guest reviews have said this has made conversation easier (!) passing time soaking in the amazing view, with some melancholy music and a glass as the fire crackles – is surely more preferable….??
