The location of the chalet is a very good one, because it's near beautiful places and nice walks. And we have to mention the outstanding views from the deckchairs. Some of the favorite with Chalet Alex : - At night gazing at the stars comfortably - Sitting in the hot tub with the bubbles on - Eating outside on an extremly nice table. And so on ! We enjoyed our stay very much. And hopefully we would stay again !

It had everything we needed including a washing/games room downstairs, perfect for storing our bikes, to a well stocked kitchen with open plan eating ideal for socialising. The chunky table on the lovely veranda was great on the hotter days. A 15 minute walk takes you to the small market square with good tourist office and a few places to eat and shop. Locally the summer luge at Le Clusaz was fun as was the pool at Le Grand Bormand. Down the valley at Thones is a larger supermarket and plenty more cultural and sporting activities. Local walks and challenging cycle routes also provide ideal alternatives for the more active! Overall a wonderful week spent with family and friends.
