Apartment in Le Chinaillon, Rhone-Alps, France
About the area
22km away are the grass beaches of Lake Annecy where its clear waters reflect the surrounding mountains. There are a wide choice of water sports and lakeside cafes and restaurants.
In Summer Grand Bornand has a nine hole golf course, with a couple of longish par 3's and par 4 doglegs over water and through trees that will test good golfer's. It is predominantly a friendly track though and with a welcoming club house is ideal for those wanting to try golf for the first time. Kid's are welcome and golf clubs for all sizes are cheaply rented.
The Grand Bornad/Chinaillon area is on our doorstep and when linked with La Clusaz it forms the Aravis area with over 210km of skiing and much much more off piste. Ideal for families it also provides testing skiing with many mogul fields and a large off piste free ski area. Boarders have 2 snow parks. Lessons are easily booked with English speaking instructors and it is only 200m to ski school by ski or 400m on foot. Grand Bornand has produced many cross country Olympic medal winners and is a centre for Nordic skiing for those who prefer not to down hill ski. There is also snow shoe walking tours organised by the tourist office. A local micro climate gives the area a superb snow record with usually a metre of snow surrounding the apartment and much more at the top. The local ski shops all offer free lockers, if you have to walk kids (or adults) to ski school, but skiers can use our two lockers and ski from our apartment. For the brave try tandem ski/paragliding with the local pilots.
How to get there
Geneva is the closest airport and is an easy 55 minute drive away. Annecy and Geneva are also main TGV stations. We very often drive from Calais which is an 8 hour drive away. There are two garages for our clients and in the Summer a car is essential, in the Winter it is recommended for large food shopping.
La Clusaz (15 mins), Chamonix (70 mins), Geneva (55 mins)
Annecy (40 mins).
House swap considered.
About the Owner
A Dentist and Doctor living in London. My wife and I fell in love with Le Chinaillon some 4 years ago and set about finding somewhere to buy. We bought off plan, two adjoining apartments in a new development on the piste. We worked closely with the architect to give us the place we now love and want to share. Living in London with all of it's stresses is made bearable knowing that Le Chinaillon is so close
