About the property

Beautiful traditional chalet sleeps 10, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

Full of charm and character and close to the slopes and village center, and recently renovated, this traditional chalet is the ideal location for a party of 10. The Chalet is situated just before the village of St Jean de Sixt , which is a 5 minute drive to the ski domains of Grand-Bornand and La Clusaz and a great cycling and trekking destination in the summer months.

The chalet has just been renovated and modernised with new finishes throughout, now stylishly decorated in keeping with the lovely rustic feel of the chalet.

Cosy and comfortable, it has a large convivial kitchen/dining area with an adjoining lounge with wood burning stove, 1 lounge/tv room/bedroom, 4 double/twin bedrooms, ensuite and 2 bathrooms.

The chalet benefits from 2 large terraces for alfresco dining in summer and offers lovely views over the valley throughout the seasons.

On Entry to the chalet is a lobby area with a staircase to your right that takes you up to the main sleeping area. Straight ahead past the lobby is an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge with wood burning stove . A large rustic dining table seats up to 10 people. Doors open out onto a balcony with grape vines and views over the valley. Adjacent to the dining area is the TV room which also has bunk beds in one corner . Wifi internet , English satellite and French channels are available. This level benefits from a large bathroom with freestanding bath shower and basin. On the top floor are 4 bedrooms, 3 double rooms and one twin room . One double room has an ensuite bathroom . The other bathroom to share has a shower and toilet . To access the laundry and lower ground floor you must exit at the entry level and take steps down the side of the house to enter from a wooden terraced area . There is a washing machine, dryer sink and because of the boiler being in this area, a good place for drying out your ski gear!

Outside at the entrance is a boot storage shed with heated boot warmers for winter and all the equipment for barbeque in summer. A pile of firewood is also at your disposal .

You can park as number of cars at the property with 3 allocated space and plenty of spaces along the main road. You can also travel using the communal buses 62 and 63 linking the Chalet to Annecy on one side and LA Clusaz/Grand Bornand on the other. The Ski buses depart from St Jean de Sixt town center, 500m away.

The gated garden is a good area for children to play whilst parents enjoy the views and alfresco dinning from the main terrasse.

Wonderful holiday in St Jean-de-sixte

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic holiday we had in the beautiful chalet. The renovations have been a great addition to the chalet and Michelle and Claude were excellent hosts and made us feel very much at home. We skied in La Clusaz every day and had a wonderful week full of sunshine. We were two families and the space was perfect for us all. The only thing that was missing was a dryer as we felt that was very much needed especially with children. Apart from that all was perfect and we look forward to returning next year.

A stunning chalet with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

A truly lovely chalet, the pictures and property description didn't do it justice.

A well maintained, clean and bright property with fantastic views into the valley.

A short drive to the restaurants and bars of La Clusaz, I would have no hesitation in returning.

Stunning! A fabulously luxurious year round venue

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Chalet Gueraudaz, it has been subject to a high end refurbishment, the views are stunning, it is within walking distance to the shops, ski bus and restaurants of Saint Jean de Sixt (we tried Saint Jean de Sixt’s 2 main restaurants, La Cabanon and Le Peille both of which deservedly have a Certificate of Excellence) and it is only 5 minutes drive to the slopes of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard, Le Ferme in La Clusaz is a must, but book! Although La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard are only 5 minutes drive away, if you want to have a drink in the evening, we used a very reliable taxi firm, Allo Taxi, recommended by the property managers.

I am a keen cyclist and plan to return to the chalet when the snow melts and the weather warms as there is plenty of storage space for the bikes and there are some fantastic cycle routes, including part of Le Tour de France 2016 route literally on the doorstep. The chalet is also secure and alarmed.

I would highly recommend this chalet to families and groups of friends, skiers and non skiers alike as there is plenty to see and do in the area, or just sit by the fire and relax with a book. We were a group of 5 friends, but the chalet could comfortably fit 10 and the configuration would also suit 2 separate families.

WOW what a change

  • 5 of 5

Cannot believe the amazing changes that the owners have made too this chalet - it has been totally renovated since our last stay. Everything brand new and so tasteful. The managers are excellent and answered all our questions and had the chalet beautifully prepared for our stay. I would give 10 stars if I could - we had a great holiday, thank you.

Lovely chalet near ski slopes and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved this chalet! We stayed here on our family ski holiday for half term with 10 of us. It is plenty big enough, yet warm and cosy and has a lovely big open plan kitchen living area, with a log burner, which was lovely for the family to all be in cooking/relaxing/children playing games at the same time yet not on top of each other. The views from the balcony are stunning and so relaxing to look out on over breakfast. It has a lovely rustic ski chalet feel but with nice modern touches like the kitchen, lovely white bed linen and a big bathroom with a roll top bath perfect for relaxing after a long days ski. It also has a separate boot room with warmers to dry your boots out so they are lovely and warm and dry in the mornings... a real plus.

It is set near to a bakery, shops, restaurants (short walk to 2 excellent restaurants) etc and yet feels nice and secluded. Nearby you have the choice of driving to either Las Clusaz or Le Grand Bornard, both lovely little towns with an abundance more and with skiing for all abilities. We loved Le Grand Bornand where you can ski right out the back and ski in powder through the trees with few others around!

We also went to Annecy one night for dinner which is only 20 minutes away and a must - beautiful! I think this chalet would be beautiful in the summer too and we are thinking of coming back to mountain bike and visit Annecy again.

We had such a lovely holiday with our family, the children had a ball - thank you for making our stay so memorable!
