Overview

About the property

Chalet in Les Carroz, Haute-Savoie, French Alps - Close To Lifts With Spectacular Views And Reasonable Prices

The chalet sleeps up to 10 adults. It has been newly renovated for the 2012/13 ski season. There is a large open plan kitchen, living room and dining room with wood burning stove.The chalet is situated on a quiet no through road at the top of Les Carroz. It has spectacular views and is a 8 minute walk down to the ski lifts. The chalet is the perfect place to get away from the 9 to 5. Its fitted out with everything you will need for a great holiday. The kitchen is well equipped and there is masses of space for a large group or even two families. The chalet is run on the easy jet principle which means a bit more work but then you get better rates. Being only approx 1hr away from Geneva airport its easy to get to and once there you don't need a a car as everything is a easy walk away (although it is a mountain so you do have to go uphill sometimes!).

About Harriet Blackmore

Chalet Kilima is a family owned chalet. Although we live in the UK the chalet has been our bolt hole for more than 30 years. We have enjoyed many a family holiday here and hope you will too.

Harriet Blackmore purchased this chalet in 1980

Why Harriet Blackmore chose Flaine - Grand Massif

We brought our chalet because we love Les Carroz. Over the 30 years that we have owned Chalet Kilima we have seen many changes but Les Carroz has still retained it charm and intimate feel. From our balcony we think we have the best view in the whole town.

What makes this chalet unique

Amazing views, masses of space, a warm cozy well equipped home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic Easter week at Chalet Kilima. The snow was unbelievable this year and balmy evenings on the balcony watching the sunset over a glass of wine were incredible. Perfectly placed minutes from the ski lift and with all we needed for our group of friends and kids to enjoy a week together has left us longing for our next visit. Thank you Chalet Kilima! M.Turner 22 April 2009.

We had a wonderful time at chalet Kilima, the ski resort is fantastic for all levels, the town nice and lively in the evenings and then you can retreat to the alpine chalet set in the trees overlooking the town for some peace and quiet. The chalet has everything. A fantastic experience. Thanks -D.Green Feb 2010.

'I would just to like to say what a fantastic place you have. It was perfect in every way possible (the view, the wood fire, the two floors!). We all had such a brilliant time and so grateful for providing such a wonderful place to stay. We're all jealous of such a facility.T Mcleod Feb 2010.

Notes:
We run the rental of the chalet on the Easyjet principle - low cost but a bit more work! We expect our guests to leave the chalet clean and tidy and to bring their own linen and towels. This enables us to keep our prices low. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / are not included. It may sound like more hard work renting our chalet but the savings you make are considerable and most of our guests come back time and time again so we must be doing something right. Do get in touch to find out more. Other: Large drying cupboard and attic space. There is an attic space that has restricted head room for adults but makes a great child play area/dormitory!

A lovely, spacious and well appointed chalet.

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Kilima is situated just outside the centre of Les Carroz (about a 10 minute walk/quick drive). It is a lovely chalet comprising a large open plan living/dining/cooking area. There are five bedrooms, all twin or double and two bathrooms. It is extremely well equipped and has a TV, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a boot room. There is plenty of cooking equipment, crockery, cutlery and glasses, and lots of games to play also. The views are spectacular.

We were two families with a mix of boys and girls and ages and Chalet Kilima totally suited our needs.

Fabulous Chalet Kilima

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous chalet in spectacular surroundings. Chalet is of very high standard and comfortable with all necessary mod-cons. Situated overlooking the pretty village of Les Carroz with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, but still a short drive/walk to the ski lifts. I have been to the chalet with various abilities of skiers and all have had a fantastic week of sking. Highly recommended.
