Wonderful stay in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The chalet provided us with a great base to explore the surrounding area and is authentically decorated. 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.

Wonderful stay in really pretty property

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect - we drove up into the mountains one day and then spent another couple of days in and around Annecy. The property is very well equipped, clean and well maintained. It is on the outskirts of the village of St Jean de Sixt which has various shops and a great bakery. The children (16,15 and 12) loved Annecy and went swimming in the lake and hired a pedalo. We would definitely recommend this property.

Wonderful holiday in St Jean-de-sixte

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic holiday we had in the beautiful chalet. The renovations have been a great addition to the chalet and Michelle and Claude were excellent hosts and made us feel very much at home. We skied in La Clusaz every day and had a wonderful week full of sunshine. We were two families and the space was perfect for us all. The only thing that was missing was a dryer as we felt that was very much needed especially with children. Apart from that all was perfect and we look forward to returning next year.

A stunning chalet with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

A truly lovely chalet, the pictures and property description didn't do it justice.

A well maintained, clean and bright property with fantastic views into the valley.

A short drive to the restaurants and bars of La Clusaz, I would have no hesitation in returning.

Stunning! A fabulously luxurious year round venue

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Chalet Gueraudaz, it has been subject to a high end refurbishment, the views are stunning, it is within walking distance to the shops, ski bus and restaurants of Saint Jean de Sixt (we tried Saint Jean de Sixt’s 2 main restaurants, La Cabanon and Le Peille both of which deservedly have a Certificate of Excellence) and it is only 5 minutes drive to the slopes of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard, Le Ferme in La Clusaz is a must, but book! Although La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard are only 5 minutes drive away, if you want to have a drink in the evening, we used a very reliable taxi firm, Allo Taxi, recommended by the property managers.

I am a keen cyclist and plan to return to the chalet when the snow melts and the weather warms as there is plenty of storage space for the bikes and there are some fantastic cycle routes, including part of Le Tour de France 2016 route literally on the doorstep. The chalet is also secure and alarmed.

I would highly recommend this chalet to families and groups of friends, skiers and non skiers alike as there is plenty to see and do in the area, or just sit by the fire and relax with a book. We were a group of 5 friends, but the chalet could comfortably fit 10 and the configuration would also suit 2 separate families.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed it so much. Indeed it is a great location for both summer and winter, ideal for cyclists and trekkers/walkers in summer and great for all the winter sports with the two stations nearby. The area has so much to offer, there is something for everyone! See you again soon!
