Property Description

This spacious 3-bedroom apartment measuring 65m2 is situated on the first floor of an attractive residence that is ideally located in the centre of La Giettaz. The apartment is appointed in traditional Alpine style and includes a large living/dining area with fully-fitted kitchen, a balcony, a ski locker and two private parking spaces. La Giettaz is a pretty Savoyard village, perfectly positioned in the Val d’Arly between Megève and La Clusaz, with over 800km of ski pistes accessible within a 20-minute drive. The apartment is situated on the first floor of the residence, accessed by stairs.

It comprises:

- Open plan living area with fitted kitchen (29m2) and glass doors to balcony

- Two double bedrooms (10m2 & 9m2) with built-in wardrobes; one bedroom has an ensuite shower-room

- One “coin montage” or bunkroom

- One bathroom and one independent W.C.

- Ski/bike locker and two private outdoor parking spaces

- Oil-powered central heating included in the annual copropriété charges

The free skibus stops 50m from the apartment for direct access to the Portes du Mont Blanc in under 10 minutes. The current owners have been renting the apartment out for holiday lets with a potential for income to cover all running costs. Nestled in a spectacular valley at the foot of the Col des Aravis, La Giettaz is surrounded by unspoilt forest and bucolic pastureland. The local Giettois are rightly proud of their traditional mountain village lifestyle, with many small farms scattered across the hillsides around the village. Amenities in the village include a handful of friendly restaurants and bars, a small grocery store, a couple of ski hire shops, the post office, the tourist information centre and the primary school. Like much of the Val d’Arly, La Giettaz is not a ski resort; rather it is a living village with an active, year-round community, surrounded by over 800km of pistes between the Portes du Mont Blanc, Evasion Mont Blanc, Espace Diamant and La Clusaz ski areas – all within 20 minutes’ drive of the village.

Accessed from the small hamlet of Le Plan – just a short drive from La Giettaz itself – the north-facing slopes of the 100km Portes du Mont Blanc area have a growing reputation for both quiet, hassle-free pistes and superb off-piste tree skiing and ski touring. During spring, summer and autumn, the area offers outstanding hiking, road cycling, mountain biking and many other outdoor activities. La Clusaz 14km, Megève 15km, Albertville (nearest train station) 33km, Annecy 44km, Chamonix 48km, Geneva Airport 83km, Lyon Airport 169km.

Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc Ski Area

 

A lesser known area that deserves greater recognition as it is the 3rd largest area in France with 445km (276 miles) of piste served by 107 ski lifts and featuring the resorts of Megeve, St Gervais, Les Contamines, Combloux, La Giettaz and St Nicolas de Veroce.  You can also link into Les Houches and onwards to the Chamonix valley via the Tramway du Mont Blanc from St Gervais. The lift pass price is reasonable for such a large area and the atmosphere that of genuine French market towns and villages and not of purpose built ski resorts .  If you are looking for authenticity where French is still spoken in the bars and shops this is the place ! 

The area is one of the easiest to reach from Geneva airport , just 86km so an easy 45 minutes motorway drive and then just 7 minutes up the hill to St Gervais. 

The area is less well known as there are no major tour operators bringing the mass market to the area, however there are plenty of like minded independent travellers and the range of villages means you will find a holiday to suit almost every person and pocket. From the uber rich clientele of Megeve to the family friendly resort of Les Contamines – there is something for everyone. This also applies to the skiing which is varied to suit all abilities and the traditional villages makes this a great destination in the summer months too with a range of activities for everyone.

The area includes the resorts of Combloux, Le Jaillet / Megeve and Cordon and offers 100 km of slopes mostly red runs.
But this small resort is also part of the vast 'Evasion Mont Blanc', 445 km of pistes spread over 6 resorts mainly around the Megeve Valley.
You can also ski in the cosmopolitain resort of La Clusaz - 10 km away...

In a beautiful setting between the Aravis range and Mont Blanc.
Surrounded by spruce forest, with abundant wildlife - not unusual to see deer in your garden !

La Giettaz is the ideal place for lovers of mountain scenery and postcard panoramas.
Numerous downhill runs and hiking trails take you deep into the mountains, amid a soothing silence, occasionally broken by the passage of the odd goat !
