About the property

Apartment in Sixt Fer a Cheval, Haute Savoie, France - Stunning Waterfall Views

Set in the peaceful village of Sixt Fer a Cheval at the end of the delightful Giffre Valley, this area of France offers a multitude of summer activities (walking, cycling, mountain climbing, via ferrata, white water rafting) as well as the full sweep of winter sports activities being one of the five linked villages of the Grand Massif ski area. There are also numerous opportunities to observe the local wildlife of the nature reserve, including a breeding pair of Bearded Vultures. The accommodation comprises the upper two floors of the old village 'Epicerie', recently refurbished to a very high standard by local craftsmen.

Wonderful appt with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

The appt just outside the village but within walking distance of family ski runs and also a dog friendly bar

Lovely walking areas very close by

Something for everyone

The appt is well stocked with all the mod cons

Freeview tv fast internet

Kitchen well equipped full size cooker fridge


Heating which was very efficient and a great log burner which made the home really toasty and warm

Big bathroom separate shower and a big bath plenty of hot water and great water pressure

Comfy beds and plenty of space upstairs also toilet and washing machine

On arrival the appt very clean and Vicky had advised us before of key collection etc

We were very lucky with the snow even having to be dug out by the neighbours tractor one day

The area is very nice a little ski resort on the doorstep but samoans only 15 mins in car

Walking areas just fantastic and there are lots of them

Don’t hesitate book in you won’t be disappointed

Sorry to leave wound love to visit in the summer imagine it to be very pretty
