Val d’Arly: rare opportunity to purchase traditional farmhouse to renovate in stunning mountain location.
- 10 minutes drive to ski resort
- Mountain views.
- Balcony, terrace or garden providing an area large enough for dining.
This magnificent 18th century farmhouse offers unlimited potential to create your dream Alpine home in a fabulous mountain setting with over 7 hectares of land. The house has the possibility to provide over 300m2 of floor space including the magnificent open plan upstairs barn that could be opened up to enjoy the panoramic views over the Val d’Arly and the Aravis mountains.
The house currently has two levels of around 150m2 each, with a basement underneath. The ground floor has five large rooms and the traditional stable that runs the length of the building. Upstairs, the huge barn could be transformed into a show-stopping open plan living space. There is also a traditional “mazot” cabin and bread oven outside that would offer additional living space. The 7 hectares of land are a mixture of pasture and forest.
The farm is situated on gently sloping ground at 1200m altitude. A gravel track of approximately 4km leads from the main road between the traditional Savoyard villages of La Giettaz and Flumet. Both villages offer a wide range of amenities and services and the Val d’Arly as a whole enjoys an active, year-round community with access to over 800km of pistes between the Portes du Mont Blanc, Evasion Mont Blanc, Espace Diamant and La Clusaz ski areas.
Megève 13km, La Clusaz 16km, Albertville (nearest train station) 25km, Chamonix 45km, Annecy 47km, Geneva Airport 81km, Chambéry Airport 85km, Lyon Airport 160km
Espace Diamant Ski Area
This newly completed ski area is a hit. It brings together some of the prettiest ski resorts in the Alps, and when you’re floating around on the super light snow found in the area there is one word that sums up the experience of skiing this domain – scenery – it’s really pretty, it’s really stunning.
For much of the skiing you are under the watchful eye of Mont Blanc the highest peak in Western Europe, which provides a sensational backdrop to any activity. The snow record for this area is exemplary and opens from mid Dec to late April in spite of being a relatively low area; they call it the Mont Blanc effect. Snow seems to fall here when surrounding resorts are not being so lucky and many a time I’ve been over to find fresh thigh deep powder when all around are praying for snow.
It is made up of five resorts; Crest Voland Cohennoz, Flumet, Hautluce, Notre-dame de Bellecombe, Praz sur Arly and Les Saisies and most of these resorts have their own satellite villages and resorts such as Bisanne 1500 which, whilst it has its own lifts, is classified as part of Les Saisies.
The Espace Diamant has 185kms of marked piste; 31 green runs, 59 blues, 47 red and 11 black, so something for everyone and in addition 4 bordercross trails and 3 snowparks add to the ensemble. Because of the newness of the area the lift system is good and efficient.
This whole area is extremely good for families; it is not for the full on party animals but there is a pleasant vibe in these resorts. In the summer the place is absolutely stunning; incredible vistas and flower meadows take the breath away and it is a great place for all types of mountain adventures whether of the gourmet, relaxing kind or full on adrenalin kind!
Flumet - St-Nicolas-la-Chapelle Ski Resort
Perfect for family holidays, at just the right altitude between the Beaufortain et le Val d’Arly, close to the Mont Blanc area, the Espace Diamant is an extensive ski area with a variety of charming villages and beautiful panoramic views. Unspolit traditional villages and quality ski areas, the pistes are large and easily accessible, for all levels and especially good for families.
The Espace Diamant (Flumet, Praz-sur-Arly, Notre Dame de Bellecombe, Les Saisies and Crest-Voland Cohennoz) is the ideal spot for very varied skiing - go smoothly from one resort to another, from alpages to forests, from villages to summits, fun, easy and full of suprises.
