Property Description

This beautiful two-floor chalet, built in 2006, occupies a delightful position overlooking the La Giettaz valley. Carefully constructed using traditional methods and materials, the chalet radiates Alpine charm and character. The huge open-plan living and dining area is the perfect space for après-ski relaxation and the three double bedrooms make this a complete family home. The large south-facing terrace and garden enjoy sunshine throughout the day and promise fabulous panoramic views of the Aravis mountains. Just take one look at this property and you will fall in love with it! The chalet measures 119m2 in total, across two floors, and comprises:

Ground Floor:

- Entrance hall, inner hall and independent W.C

- Open-plan living/dining area (51m2) with fitted kitchen (6.75m2), fireplace and sliding glass doors to south-facing terrace (25m2) and garden

- Stairs up to an enclosed mezzanine containing one double bedroom (6.78m2)

First Floor:

- Master bedroom with reading alcove (15.63m2)

- One double bedroom (11.75m2)

- Balcony (5m2) adjoins the two bedrooms

- One shower-room with W.C.

There is a garage of 38m2 situated below the garden, adjacent to the road. The garden also has a traditional “mazot” or storage building. The total size of the plot is 1017m2.

The chalet sits in a very picturesque location above the traditional village of La Giettaz, just off the road towards the Col des Aravis. The centre of the village is approximately 2km from the chalet and the nearest ski lift is 5km away, providing access to the Portes du Mont Blanc/Evasion Mont Blanc areas. The free village skibus stops close to the chalet. Nestled in a spectacular valley at the foot of the Aravis mountains, 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, producing the delicious Reblochon cheese. 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, happily surrounded by over 800km of pistes between the Portes du Mont Blanc, Evasion Mont Blanc, Espace Diamant and La Clusaz ski areas that are 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 12km, Megève 16km, Albertville (nearest train station) 34km, Annecy 42km, Chamonix 49km, Geneva Airport 81km, Chambéry Airport 88km, Lyon Airport 170km Please click on my photograph to view my portfolio with all the apartments and chalets for sale in La Giettaz and the Val d'Arly.

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.

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 !
