This lovely character property for sale in a hamlet of Le Biot has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and offers further renovation potential inside the barn of over 200m2. It overlooks a panorama of mountain scenery. The garden is large and hosts two charming original mazots, a sun terrace and a hot tub in a private spot, which all profit from the fabulous views in this idyllic spot. The large barn on the first floor which, subject to planning, could be renovated to provide a further 200m2 of incredible habitable space, boasts a cathedral style structure and a south-west aspect wall that could be opened up to embrace the breathtaking panorama of snow tipped mountains and blue skies that lie beyond it. This is a true jewel awaiting renovation as a luxurious home or as separate, independent apartment(s).

There is a bright and sunny traditional farmhouse kitchen, with an Aga range cooker, that is open to the dining room. The kitchen has access to the sunny terrace and the dining room to the garden. The large lounge also with a door out to the garden has a wood-burning stove. Behind the kitchen and lounge there is a games room / office space through which you also access the 2 ground floor bedrooms. The sauna has a massive wet room and there is a separate toilet. The two double bedrooms on the ground floor both have doors leading to the terrace and the garden and one has a hand basin. These share a very large family bathroom. Next to the sauna is a cloakroom, a separate toilet and a room that houses the oil fired central heating boiler. The utility room is on this floor too.
Upstairs there is a huge landing and a further three bedrooms. The master has a dual aspect, a door onto the balcony and a large en-suite bathroom. There is a separate shower room with a power shower and a separate toilet. The other 2 bedrooms are double and one has door onto the balcony. Access to the barn is also from this floor.
This barn is unbelievably large and has a door to it that is at ground level from the other side of the property. With it’s double height ceiling, impressive wooden beams and large windows it truly would have a wow factor when renovated. There is a heated ski/boot room in the barn.
There is a large garden with a terrace, grassed area and an orchard with numerous fruit trees. One of the two mazots is a changing room for the hot tub that is hidden in a secluded spot with panoramic views. There is also the opportunity to buy a smaller semi detached barn at the side of the property. This is also a beautiful old Savoyard barn that could be renovated (again subject to planning). Le Biot is quaint and peaceful and nestles into the stunning scenery of the French Alps. It remains seemingly untouched by time, having the dreamy, tranquil air that many of the larger alpine villages lost years ago. It is deceptive, though, as although it appears to have no connection to the frenetic ski resorts that are so well known to all, this little village actually lies in the very heart of Les Portes du Soleil, one of the largest ski areas in the world. It has a bakery, a hotel with a bar and restaurant that offers take away pizzas, a post office and a very successful junior school. It lies about halfway between Thonon-les-Bains on the shores of Lake Geneva and Morzine giving easy access to the ski slopes in the winter and the summer activities on the lake.
Portes du Soleil Ski Area
600 km of skiing in 2 countries making the Portes du Soleil the biggest international ski area in the world.
Here skiing is a journey, with different panoramas and routes to look forward to every day, and each of our 12 village resorts offering a charm of their own.
The resorts are amongst the most well known, including Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets, Abondance, Chatel and St Jean D’Aulps to name but a few.
They also offer excellent opportunities for downhill mountain bikers outside the winter months.
As a popular holiday destination in both summer and winter, these resorts offer investment potential. So whether you are looking for a quiet and peaceful family resort (Chatel or St Jean D'Aulps for example) or something a little more lively (Morzine) the Portes du Soleil has it all.
Within easy distance of the International Airport at Geneva plus close to Lake Geneva, this ski area is the perfect destination.
Morzine Ski Resort
Situated mid-way between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, the ever popular resort of Morzine is absolutely stunning, well known for its Alpine scenery, nestled between forests and summits. Life is leisurely, and the village although vibrant and bustling has lost nothing of its original charm and Savoyard way of life. Ideally situated right in the middle of the Portes du Soleil, Morzine is the gateway to a marvellous winter playground of 650 km of ski-slopes where you can ski from French into Switzerland and back again all in one day. When it comes to lunchtime you are spoilt for choice with all the mountain restaurants scattered everywhere.
In summer, these slopes become sign-posted footpaths for trekking and moutain biking. Originally life in Morzine was one of agriculture and slate-mines but with the opening of the ‘Grand Hotel’ (first tourist hotel built in the 1920’s) and its owner François Baud opened up a new opportunities for the village and it’s in habitants. Then in 1934 the Pleney cable car was opened and the thick covering of snow started some previously unknown sports: tobogganing, ski-jöring (towed behind a horse), the beginnings of downhill skiing and even ski-jumping!
If ski or snow boarding instruction is the order of the day there are avariety of French and English speaking Instructors in the ski schools.
There is a vast array of shops, bars and restaurants, offering plenty to non-skiers as well and for after ski fun. This makes Morzine a good all year round resot for those who live here and those with Holiday homes.
