Rare to the market this is a fabulous opportunity to own a traditional alpine chalet. Easily accessible by car and within walking distance to the village centre, shops, bars and restaurants, the chalet is in a prime location and also the foot of the main ski slopes. Retaining many of its original features following a full renovation, this 18th century farmhouse is oozing with authenticity and character.
Currently run as a successful B&B it is only 60km to Geneva airport and 30km to Lake Annecy. An absolute must-see!
Massif des Aravis Ski Area
In the Haute-Savoie, between Annecy and the Mont Blanc Massif is the beautiful Massif des Aravis. Tucked away here you’ll find a less well known ski area named after the mountain range. It is very beautiful, interesting and traditional.
It brings together the 4 ski resorts of La Clusaz, Le Grand-Bornand, Manigod et Saint-Jean de Sixt which offer Alpine skiing (downhill)and Nordique skiing alongside a whole host of other activities. There are 220kms of piste across the 4 resorts, 2 snow-parks, 1 half pipe of 130m. There are also 150kms of nordic skiing including the Confins plateau, which is an official site for the World Cup. Plus 26 routes for racket walking (snow shoes). At Le Grand-Bornand you’ll find the GB snow-park which is classed among the five best in France. In addition there are 2 ice rinks and an aqua centre.
Each of the four resorts have charm and retain their traditions with original architecture and a village feel, these are after all villages turned ski resort and not purpose built. There is agriculture in the area which works alongside the ski resorts retaining a very authentic feel and they work hard to preserve the mountain nature of all the resorts.
This is also a hugely popular destination for summer. All four resorts aim themselves firmly at the family market and succeed very well with this, but over the last few years a new trend has developed aimed at the rich and famous who value privacy and peace above glamour and glitz on their ski holiday this is most noticeable at La Clusaz and Grand Bornard who are member of “Top of the French Alps” a group aiming for excellence.
