Our chalet is a recent, executive style, wonderfully bright, luxurious and comfortable home, located only a ten minute drive from the ski capital of the Laurentians, and only five minutes from the quaint village of St-Jovite. 

It is nestled high in the secluded hills of "Villa des Bois", on 1.6 acres of private forest.    The home is 2,400 square feet of modern, opened spaces, cathedral ceilings, and "walls of glass" where you may bask in sunshine (or in moonlight), all year round, while taking in the stunning view and the mature trees all around. 

It has 4 very large bedrooms, 3 full washrooms (1 ensuite), 6 decks and a huge screened-in porch.  It is fully equipped to receive 8 adults very conformably.

The main entrance is spacious and inviting.  It leads to the main floor living room which is simply stunning with its huge cascading windows, warm Napoleon fireplace, antique furniture and original art, and its cozy leather couches, library and wing back chair.   The living room is such, we are told, that no photo can appropriately describe the sensation.  It has to be experienced first hand. 

The dining room is large and the table expands to easily accommodate an entire group of guests at a time.   It gives onto a large deck and the screened porch,  where you may BBQ to your heart's content, all year round, amidst the nature!  The kitchen is bright and  fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, Lagustina pots & pans, and all the large and small appliances you would expect.  It has most staples that you may need: spices, sugar, flour, Soya, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, etc,... not to mention the kitchen sink! 

There are 2 large bedrooms on the main floor, with 2 full bathrooms (bath & shower), including an ensuite.   Each bedroom has a queen size bed, down duvets and pillows, and all linens are provided. 

Up to the cozy loft, and admire the magnificent view of the lake from the 2 singles beds. 

The oversized family room is on the lower level, with its 9 foot ceiling, relaxing furniture, Digital cable reception with large screen tv, HD DVD, computer, printer, fax and yet another wood burning fireplace.   The patio door walk-out leads to a colorful wild flower garden, more decks and the romantic pathway to the lake, through the woods.  The last  bedroom, also on the lower level, occupies an entire wing of the house and is practically an apartment on its own.  It also has a full washroom and adjacent laundry facilities. 

Can't leave the office behind?  Relax!  We have WIFI "N" high speed internet throughout the property and a small office setup downstairs.   In addition, our  VOIP telephones allow you to call home, or anywhere in North America, for free! 

THE BEACH: (AKA as "The rock")
Enjoy, your own private bedrock beach, slowly flowing into the pristine waters of Lac Forget, or read your favorite book a few steps back, under the shade of a 160 year old jack pine.   The key words here ares: "PRIVACY" and "SOLITUDE".  From the beach, which is a point advancing into the lake, everything around is natural forest:  the neighbours are nowhere to be seen.   We also have a large floating raft, 20 feet into the lake, for diving.    Motor boats are not permitted on the lake.  It just doesn't get better than this...

Villa des Bois is a small, controlled development in an exquisite, natural, mountain setting, quietly tucked away from all the action at Tremblant, . . . but still only minutes away.   We are approximately an hour and a half drive north of Montreal (Quebec) , from either Pierre E.Trudeau International Airport, or from Mirabel Airport. 

Mont-Tremblant is currently the most popular North American resort and international destination and boasts some of the best skiing and golfing in eastern North America. It has some of the finest restaurants and year round activities of all kinds are plentiful, including infinite bike paths, cross country skiing, ice skating, hiking, horseback riding, car racing, etc. The Laurentians are specked by quaint villages that you will not want to miss! 

Shopping is pure fun in the village of St-Jovite or in the original village of Mont Tremblant.  Music festivals and sports events are held frequently on the hill at Tremblant. Among them the "blues fest" in July has become a major music event. 

Of course, winter time include world class downhill skiing and snowboarding at the 3 local ski resorts (Tremblant, Grey Rocks and Mont Blanc) located in the immediate area, all within a twelve minute drive from the chalet. 

Mont-Tremblant has some of the steepest slopes in the eastern part of the continent, but also has runs to suit any level from beginner to expert. When you are done skiing, you can stroll through the amazing "European" village built by Intrawest at the base of the mountain, and enjoy all the shops and services offered there.  

A few steps from our door and you can be snowshoeing in the woods or cross-country skiing around the lakes. 

In the summertime our area transforms into a recreational paradise for golfers (9 golf courses within 20 minutes drive! ), horseback riding, bicycling, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, and of course, swimming or,... just sitting around listening to the wood peckers and enjoying the clean alpine environment and serenity. 

You may especially not want to miss our Canadian maples turn into a folly of colors in the fall, or taste its sweet syrup at the sugar shacks in spring. hh_logo_red.jpg (5705
