About the property

Hi-quality rental sleeping 6 people with additional apartments for groups

We have pleasure in offering for rental a delightful brand new, ski-in, ski-out apartment situated in the village of Chinaillon, close to Le Grand Bornand in the Haute Savoie region of France. The apartment enjoys stunning views across the valley and is situated in a peaceful, yet convenient location, perfect for enjoying an active yet relaxing holiday.

The apartment is well appointed, with owners taking great care to ensure visitors have a high level of comfort during their stay.

Les Refuges des Outalays is a small group of chalet style buildings, each building containing a small number of high quality apartments. The chalets are brand new for the 2006/2007 season. The architecture and decoration give an authentic Savoyard feeling and the chalets are located ‘en piste’. This ski-in, ski-out location is perfect for both winter and summer holidays. You only have to step out of your front door to enjoy skiing, hiking or cycling in your mountain paradise.

Ski, snowboard or relax in winter: Situated at 1300m, beneath Lachat (2100m), Chinaillon enjoys an excellent snow record and offers a wide range of pistes to suit all abilities, from beginners to experts, skiers and snowboarders alike. Lessons are also available in the village if required

You may choose either a ‘Le Grand Bornand’ pass, which provides a wide variety of pistes on your doorstep, or alternatively an Aravis Pass which will open up 220km of slopes between le Grand Bornand / Chinaillon and La Clusaz.

62km of cross-country skiing is also available as are well mapped walking routes.

Whether skiing, snowboarding or just relaxing amidst stunning scenery, this area offers ideal environment for a perfect skiing holiday.

The village of Chinaillon itself provides a range of shops which include a fantastic butchers, bakery / patisserie, supermarket, hairdresser, pharmacy and sports shops. There is also a wide range of excellent restaurants, offering local specialities such as ‘tartiflette’ and ‘raclette’.

Just 300m below Chinaillon lies Le Grand Bornand which offers additional amenities such as a swimming pool, ice skating rink, numerous shops and a weekly market. The picturesque landscape is dotted with typical Savoyard chalets, and in the old part of the village of Chinaillon there are a number of very beautiful traditional buildings.

Our Christmas in Chinaillon!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great appartment in the Outalays in Chinaillon, just a couple of minutes' walk from the pistes. It's lovely and comfortable, and still has a brand-new feel about it (we first came in Feb 08). It was nice to find some basics in the store cupboards, making us feel very welcome after our long journey, and the games were much appreciated too. The property is clean and well-maintained, exactly as described in the blurb; we would definitely recommend to family and friends. Steve replied promptly to our emails in the run-up to our holiday, and we are hoping to return next winter, or maybe during the summer instead ... or even both?!

We would like to recommend Starski ski school (for children's group lessons, and my own individual lessons), and both the Intersport and Twinner shop for ski hire etc - as everywhere else in Chinaillon, their friendly, helpful service was great.

As les Outalays is a bit of a walk from Chinaillon, we didn't go out at night, preferring to cook and eat in the appartment, watching either DVDs or the fantastic views. We snacked at almost all of the restaurants and cafés at lunch time however; particular favourites were le Solerat in the village, and le self Panoramic at the top of the Floria lift.

Can't wait to go back!
