About the property

Chalet near Les Carroz, Haute Savoie, 74300, France - Very Peaceful With Magnificent Views. Hot tub and wood burner.

A traditional style alpine chalet completed in 2012 provides superior accommodation for 12 in 6 bedrooms (1 containing 2 pairs of bunks) with extra facilities for young children. Situated above a small alpine village, it has magnificent views and is always very quiet. Access to the Grand Massif ski area is 10 minutes away by car at Les Carroz while the Porte des Soleil and Chamonix are within 1 hours drive. In summer, swimming, fishing, mountain biking, paragliding and numerous other activities are close by while Geneva and Annecy are within 1 hours drive. The chalet has a large main bedroom on the top floor with a large bathroom with bath and shower. On the mezzanine level outside the main bedroom is a large curtained off bedroom/play room with twin beds, a T.V. for DVDs, and two further small beds directly outside the main bedroom for children under 8yrs. There is a study area in the main bedroom. There are 4 further bedrooms on the lower ground floor. Each is a double room with twin beds and then there is a bunkroom with four beds and it has it's own shower and wash basin with a toilet outside the door. One double bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and there is a large Italian shower with wash basin for two bedrooms to share. There is a further toilet on the middle floor. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have direct access to the small west facing garden, ideal for watching the sun set. The open plan lounge and dining area take up the middle floor and have large windows giving superb views of the Aravis mountains. A car is essential - but visitors will not wish to leave. PRICE INCLUDES LINEN AND CLEANING and use of the hot tub.

About Diana Pound

I live on the south coast of England and have, with my family, visited Les Carroz for the last 30 plus years; we simply love the area for its winter sports and for summer activities. I welcome your enquiries by phone or email any time. I always leave essentials for your use, as packing toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets and spices etc. is not my idea of a good holiday. There is everything you need in the kitchen from a large fridge freezer, dishwasher and alpine cooking stoves to teabags, coffee, sugar and pasta if you find you arrive after the shops close.

Diana Pound purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Diana Pound chose Flaine - Grand Massif

We wanted a property in the immediate vicinity of Les Carroz as we know the area well, feel welcomed by the local french residents and can quickly relax here. It must be one of the closest alpine resorts to the English Channel/La Manche with autoroute driving all the way. There is always plenty to do for the energetic but it is equally perfect for those who simply want to relax while enjoying the ever changing and spectacular views. The chalet is set in a small cluster of 6 with a large garden and at the end of the short road which makes it very safe for children who can test their climbing skills or toboganing in the forested area and fields across the road. It is 10 minutes from the ski lift in Les Carrroz - not ski in ski out, but the other benefits like quality of life outweigh the quick drive by car or by ski bus to the lifts.

What makes this chalet unique

The position of the chalet allows wrap around views from Flaine in the south and Geneva in the west. Everyone who visits the chalet gasps at the uninterrupted views across the Aravis mountains - it is magnificent. We have recently installed a 6 person hot tub (jaccuzi) outside on the lower floor terrace which allows relaxation after skiing in the winter and also in the summer after the many sporting activities available in the ares, from biking, climbing ( Via Ferrata), white water rafting canyoning, paragliding, hot air ballooning and walking. We even have our own qualified ski/mountain guide living opposite.

Quel magnifique chalet! Quelle vue epoustonflaute! Un grand merci pour ces vacances parfaites... Formidable chalet pour vacances en famille; la region es magnifique... This place is amazing! It was wonderful. Famille Caffin and Foubert Jan 2014

A Perfect Chalet! Five Stars.This is quite simply the best ski chalet we have ever stayed in! Well equipped kitchen; comfy beds, especially for those with a bad back; great shower rooms; loads of hanging space for outdoor clothes; warm, cosy lounge with super efficient wood burner and, best of all, a magnificent view. If you don't mind the drive to the lifts at Les Carroz, which really aren't far at all, this is the most perfect, peaceful spot. A great stay and with helpful owners who answered all our questions promptly. Sundowner Family, London. Jan 2015.

Owner's Response: So glad the 10 minute drive to the main ski lift in Les Carroz did not spoil the obvious enjoyment of your stay, and that you booked for next February half term after being in the chalet for one hour! That must mean something to future visitors. who might be put off by not being in the middle of the resort.
