BOOK THIS DELIGHTFUL FRENCH CHALET CLOSE TO 220KM OF PISTES

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in La Clusaz - Chalet Gueraudaz

Traditional charm and modern convenience, sunny terrace, great views

CHALET GUERAUDAZ - LA CLUSAZ - GRAND BORNAND

Please visit our web site www.frenchchalet.co.uk where you will find a wealth of information about the chalet including - real time availability, pricing and last minute deals with the ability to exclusively hold the chalet for a period of 24 hours without obligation or cost. You will also find a selection of photographs, VIDEO, floor plan, map, FAQ, previous visitor’s comments, detailed property specification and a written overview of the chalet.

Traditional meets modern in the bright and sunny Chalet Gueraudaz. Built in the late 18th century, it originally stood higher up the mountain, but was moved to its present idyllic location in the 1940s, by helicopter! It now sits beside a quiet road looking south down the valley towards Thônes, and north towards the Massif d’Aiguillle. The chalet has been modernised to make a practical and comfortable holiday home, but still retains the charm and character of its origins. It’s just a short walk to the shops and restaurants of St Jean de Sixt, and the village is half way between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, so you’re in a perfect position to enjoy everything the area has to offer.

We stumbled across the Aravis region whilst out touring the Alps looking for somewhere to buy as a holiday home. We had spent days trailing around ski resorts all over the Alps. We were hoping to find a house in an area where we could ski in the winter but that we would be able to visit all year round.

These days, we find ourselves living on the other side of the world for a few years which means that we cannot visit our beautiful chalet as often as we would like.

It was obvious that as well as a ski resort, this was a working community and because of this, it was busy all year round. At the time we were particularly struck with how lively Le Grand Bornand was.

We went on to buy the house that we were going to view that day. We had been looking for somewhere with a sunny deck, a beautiful view and plenty of character. Chalet Gueraudaz definitely has all three.

The open plan kitchen and dining area, have sofas and a wood burning fire in the room. This means we can cook, eat and relax all together. We have deliberately not put a television or games consoles in this room so that we can enjoy each others company without distraction. This room opens out on to the sunny south facing deck which in the summer is shaded by the rampant grapevines.

The appeal of visiting this area in the winter is obvious. The skiing is extensive and the apres ski can be as much or as little as you want it to be. In St Jean de Sixt, we are equidistant to both La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. Although the skiing is excellent in both resorts, for the winter months, we tend to gravitate towards La Clusaz. We enjoy the skiing, the ice skating and swimming in the outside municipal pool. We enjoy visiting the bars Le Bonnet’Ane and Le Cave. If we are dining out in the evening, our favourite place to take the children is Bercail, as it is only accessible via Skidoo. The children find this hilarious and so do we. The food is very traditional for the region and excellent. L’outa is another good fun reasonably priced family restaurant with something on the menu for everyone. For both restaurants it is essential to book.

During the summer, we can spend hours in the pool in Grand Bornand where there are 3 separate pools and a water slide. We also enjoy walking the mountain tracks. The children like to take the telecabine up to Beauregard in La Clusaz and walk down the mountain, catching crickets and eating blueberries. We bribe them with a Crepe from Ugo when they get to the bottom if they all manage not to moan about the walk.

The Chalet has been beautifully restored and updated and offers excellent and comfortable accomodation. There is plenty of space for a large group as the 3 bathrooms mean everyone is catered for. The kitchen living room area lends itself well to being the focal point and with its long table is great for everyone to eat, drink and play together. La Clusaz is only a short drive away and has some great restaurants, bars, shops and a supermarket. There are also local shops in St Jean de Sixt, Boulangerie, Ski Hire, small supermarket. Ther is lots of good skiing for all abilities. We have driven to the chalet and also flown into Geneva both worked well, with Geneva under an hour away. We had a wonderful holiday and would thoroughly recommend this property.

What a fabulous place to stay!!

The chalet is ideally placed mid way between the resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand, just on the edge of St Jean de Sixt, so getting to a variety of skiing and shops was no problem.Yet once we were inside the chalet itself it felt like we were totally in the heart of the mountains, perched amongst the trees [which must look amazing in the summer]. The chalet is really well set up, and had everything we needed. The kids loved the TV room and we all appreciated the wood burner at the end of the day.
The manager, Judy, was really welcoming and gave us lots of valuable info about the local area and restaurants. The chalet had been impeccably cleaned. We would highly recommend Chalet Gueraudaz to anyone looking for a ski chalet for their winter break.

Gorgeous holiday rental!

We have stayed in this beautiful chalet twice now and we absolutely love it. It is in a perfect location only 10 mins from La Clusaz, has a fabulous layout, beautiful alpine style and is really super quality. The owners obviously adore their chalet as it is beautifully maintained and everything works perfectly. Being an authentic chalet, it is so full of character, but unlike some chalets we have visited, it is not at all dingy or old fashioned. It's perfect, really clean, well organised and beautifully warm. We absolutely adore the wood burning stove which is in the main living area. The boot room outside is really convenient and big enough for all of us, so no wet boots and skis inside. Brilliant! The balconies are south facing so the rooms are always bright and sunny, especially important for any non-skiing guests.

Situated in a really quiet hamlet you really feel you have escaped the resorts here. The views over the valley are absolutely breathtaking. For skiiers it's a brilliant location as there is so much choice just a few minutes drive away, and I have heard it said many times that in the summer it's equally amazing for children and grown ups alike.

St Jean de Sixt and particularly La Clusaz have innumerable fabulous places to eat and drink, and upon the owners recommendation, we have not been disappointed once. The shopping in La Clusaz is also highly varied and exciting. I would have no hesistation in recommending this property to a friend, you will not be disappointed.

Great chalet, great location!

  • Review Submitted: 04-Jul-2012

We had a fabulous time! The chalet was large enough so that there was space for everyone. The whole atmosphere felt very relaxing. The facilities were good, it was lovely to have enough bathrooms so that we didn't have to line up! Location is good because you have La Clusaz and the mountains one way and Annecy the other way. I would definitely recommend it. Thank you Juliet.
