This is a huge chalet, designed to accommodate one, two or even three whole families, or large groups of friends. It comes with the possibility of an attached Studio apartment, which you could choose to close off if your numbers don't quite warrant this additional space (but it won't be rented out separately to strangers). Futagoyama itself is spread over two expansive floors with three separate living areas, three fireplaces, a gorgeous (and enormous) kitchen, five bedrooms, three separate bathrooms and additional separate toilets. The main living rooms is beautifully decked-out, with a plush furnishings and a cozy double-sided fireplace. and the communal bathroom has a jacuzzi spa bath, ideal for soothing those sore muscles. There is all the space you could possibly need for a large group.

The Studio provides additional accommodation for the main lodge and, to re-state,  is only available to be rented in conjunction with the larger Futagoyama Chalet. It's perfect for either additional guests, accompanying staff or a couple just wanting a little bit of distance. As a space with it's own entry, it is fully self contained, and has its own kitchenette, is ensuite and ample storage space. There is central heating and the bathroom floors are heated. Perfect for you - yes, you! - the group organiser who surely deserves your own space once on holiday...
