This fabulous contemporary chalet was built by the owners on land belonging to their family.
Situated just a few minutes from the main road between Thones and St-Jean-de Sixt, the chalet is well placed for exploring the ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, as well as the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy. Chalet Le Kitz is in a quiet location and makes the most of the fabulous views over Mont Lachat, Tournette and Le Lachat de Grand Bornand.
There’s a lovely sunny terrace behind the property, which is then open to fields and forest, making it a great place to walk or cycle from. Although the garden is open, there is little or no passing traffic, so children can explore their immediate surroundings safely.
Chalet Le Kitz sleeps 10, with accommodation over three levels.
Built to fit in comfortably with the older properties around it, it combines elements of a traditional chalet with contemporary features designed to make life easier for our guests.
As you enter the chalet on the ground floor, you’ll find a large hallway with access to the garage and ski store, a laundry and a double bedroom with en suite shower room.
Upstairs is the huge open plan living area, which has been cleverly divided into separate areas, so that everyone can find their own space. There’s a cosy seating area with a huge corner sofa piled with cushions and a separate area for watching the television - there’s an elegant wood burner here too. Colours are muted, with stone and wood combined in the walls and floor for a stylish mountain feel.
A wooden panel divides this area from the well-equipped kitchen with an island hob, two fridges and breakfast bar, and there’s a large dining table where everyone can eat together. From here, doors open on to the delightfulspacious terrace which has sun beds, dining furniture, a barbecue and a hot tub, where you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine under the stars. There’s another bedroom and bathroom on this floor.
The remaining three spacious bedrooms are on the top floor - a large double with en suite shower room and access to the balcony, and two twin rooms (the beds can be pushed together to form doubles), both of which have their own bathrooms.
ABOUT THE AREA ...
Winter sports fans who want to escape from the bustle of modern ski resorts will find Chalet Le Kitz the perfect refuge.
Situated between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, you can ski somewhere new every day. Your Aravis ski pass also covers the Manigod area, giving you 220km of pistes of varying levels to explore, as well as extensive off-piste action. Cross-country skiers will discover trails from St-Jean-de-Sixt, just a few minutes drive from the chalet.
Non-skiers are well catered for too, and can go ice skating or swimming in La Clusaz where the heated indoor and outdoor pools are open all year round, or try snowshoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
At the end of the day, retire to Chalet Le Kitz for a meal before relaxing in the jacuzzi under the night sky. Who could ask for more?
Chalet Le Kitz is perfectly placed for a summer break, putting you a short drive from the Aravis mountain range.
At the nearby village of St-Jean-de-Sixt, just minutes from the chalet, you can try the Bun-J ride, a cross between ski jumping and bungee jumping! Other more traditional pastimes are available too - marked footpaths crisscross the mountains, or you can explore by mountain bike or on horseback.
There are indoor and outdoor swimming pool complexes in Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Thônes, or if you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there are climbing schools, via ferrata routes, tree-top adventure parks, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.
Back at Chalet Le Kitz, there is plenty of scope for children to explore, while you catch some sun on the stunning terrace, relax in the hot tub or fire up the barbecue for dinner.
The peace and quiet of Chalet Le Kitz may make you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere, but in fact, you’re just an easy drive from so many stunning places.
Less than an hour from Geneva airport, the property is between the ski resorts of the Aravis and the medieval lakeside town of Annecy, which offers a unique mix of shops, restaurants, galleries, markets and museums. Lake Annecy, said to be the cleanest lake in Europe, is a great place for water sports, swimming, cycling or just relaxing on the beach.
Closer to home, there’s a good choice of shops and restaurants in St-Jean-de-Sixt and Thônes, as well as weekly markets in Thônes, La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, where you can pick up fresh local produce such as Reblochon cheese.
IMPORTANT: if you decide to book Chalet Buhel together with Chalet Kitz located nearby, please be aware that none of the property's dining table can accomodate more than the capacity of each rental, mainly for safety reasons, to prevent any damage and to respect the home managers and staff cleaning’s job. Indeed, the maximum occupancy of the Chalet Buhel must not exceed 15 people, and 10 poeple for Kitz in order to comply with fire safety regulation. Thank you for your understanding.
NOTE: Free wifi. Cleaning, linen and towels included!
