Make a holiday rental chalet or ski apartment in Le Chinaillon, France your home away from home

Sheltered by the Lachat peak in the French Alps, Le Chinaillon is a wonderful, traditional ski resort with an exemplary snow record. Skiers of all abilities will be delighted with the range and level of difficulty of skiing available. Surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Alps, surrounded by Mont Blanc, Lake Annecy and Le Grand-Bornand, a Le Chinaillon ski apartment or property is in high demand throughout the year.

Things to do in Le Chinaillon, France

Holidays to Le Chinaillon are strongly focused on skiing. There are over 220km of pistes throughout the Aravis Ski Area, which includes the resorts of Le Grand Bornanad and La Clusaz. Although there are few truly fearsome black runs in Le Chinaillon, there is great potential for off-piste and a huge range of styles of piste. Le Chinaillon is also well known for its cross-country skiing opportunities, with 65km located throughout the resort. Throughout the resort are English speaking guides and great ski schools, so if you decide you need a little help on the slopes at any point during your stay in a Le Chinaillon property, help is at hand.

Although most people take Le Chinaillon properties and ski apartments during the winter, there is a larger range of activities to try during the winter months, when the snow has gone and the lush meadows are in flower. Directly from the front door of a Le Chinaillon property you can go mountain biking, walking, horse riding and mountaineering, making it a perfect destination for those who want to do some serious exercise during their holiday. Travel a little further from your holiday rental property and you can take to the hills with climbing ropes or a para-glider, and really test your nerve!

The town itself is a wonderful place to spend a few weeks. There are a huge range of little restaurants, bars and cafes from which you can while away many hours watching the world serenely pass by. There are also some excellent golf courses in the area, with a 9 hole course within a few miles of a Le Chinaillon property, and another two full 18 hole golf courses within an hour’s drive.

Excellent

Lovely studio in a great location on the main pedestrianised street of the old town. The outlook over the garden is pretty and waking to birdsong was a treat. Small but has everything you need. Isabelle was very easy to deal with and all arrangements were smooth. I do speak soem French though.

Beautiful location and welcoming host

5 of 5
The property is perfect distance away from Lake Annecy so that it is convenient to get to the lake and shops/cafes etc when you want but that it provides peace and quiet too. It is located half was up a hill and this provides you with stunning views of the surrounding area. The gite is equipped with everything you need and is comfortable and clean. There is a large main room with a sofa that can be used as a bed, comfortable chairs and a coffee table. Located the other side of this room is the kitchen area and a large kitchen table and chairs that would comfortably seat six people. There is a full sized oven and grill which you can use either as gas or electric or both and a microwave if you prefer. Also supplied is a kettle, coffee maker, toaster, iron, full sized fridge freezer and a washing machine which is extremely helpful if you cycle. The bedroom has plenty of cupboard space and there is lots of additional bedding provided to cover all temperatures. The bathroom has a shower toilet and sink. The gite is heated with adjustable radiators and the host left the heating on and left it to us to control the individual radiators. We found this provided the perfect temperature for us. The host Ken was happy to share his knowledge of both walking and cycling with us and was kind enough to take us on a bike ride around the lake pointing out places of interest as we went. We took up a number of his suggestions including walking up nearby Col de la Forclaz, cycling up Col de l'Arpettaz with it's numerous hairpins, and catching the train to the top of Montenvers-Mer de Glace to see the glacier located in Chamonix. There are plenty of other things to do and the local area is fascinating and beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a peaceful holiday, in beautiful countryside and particularly walkers and cyclists. Reading others reviews complaining about the lack of curtains and the church bells ringing - we would suggest using the traditional wooden shutters on the gite which block out all the light and we found the church bells to be unobtrusive and pleasing on the ear. If we return to this area of France would certainly use again.
