If guests prefer to venture outside, Chalet Hibou’s exceptional guide teams lead unforgettable excursions like hiking past waterfalls and historic farming hamlets or assisted hiking across high-elevation glaciers. Once the snow blankets the region, popular activities include cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and heli-skiing the neighboring Italian terrain.
A Finnish sauna and steam room lull guests into a state of deep relaxation, offsetting the adventure-packed day. The chalet’s staff prides itself on concocting whatever it is that guests prefer, honing in on providing an entirely personalized wellness experience.
Every corner of France is saturated in world-renowned cuisine, and Chalet Hibou is no exception. The freshest yogurt is hand-delivered by the village dairy farmer, then served alongside flavorful muesli, homemade bread, and local eggs. A spread of aged cheeses paired with French wines is presented throughout the day, satisfying guests’ appetites at every turn. “Le Monal,” the oldest restaurant in the village, has been managed by the same local family since its inception and captivates visitors who want a taste of Le Miroir.
Chalet Hibou’s bar boasts an extensive myriad of fine wines from all over France. Perhaps the most cherished place to sip on a glass is amidst the glow of the log fireplace, where intimate gatherings abound.
A truly special beverage that guests have the privilege of tasting is the native Génépi liqueur, made by Jean-Noel Gaidet, Eleven’s head guide himself. The historically medicinal flower Génépi is gathered in August from Savoie’s high country, then mixed with alcohol and sugar to make a flowery liqueur best enjoyed from a flask after a long day of skiing.
Chalet Hibou can accommodate up to seventeen guests in the summer and sixteen in the winter, welcoming a blend of travelers seeking a secluded mountain getaway, an elegant taste of French lifestyle, and skiing some of the globe’s most pristine terrain. This is particularly suited for travelers looking for a romantic escape to rural France.
Chalet Hibou is nestled within the Tarentaise Valley on top of Le Miroir, a dreamy village off the beaten path. Enclosed on all sides by world-class ski resorts, the Savoie region is an alpine playground that enchants skiers and sightseers alike.
