The Chalet is situated just before the village of St Jean de Sixt , which is a 5 minute drive to the ski domaine areas of le Le Grand-Bornand or La Clusaz .

The chalet has just been renovated and modernised with new finishes throughout, now stylishly decorated in keeping with the lovely rustic feel of the chalet.

WOW what a change

  • 5 of 5

Cannot believe the amazing changes that the owners have made too this chalet - it has been totally renovated since our last stay. Everything brand new and so tasteful. The managers are excellent and answered all our questions and had the chalet beautifully prepared for our stay. I would give 10 stars if I could - we had a great holiday, thank you.

Lovely chalet near ski slopes and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved this chalet! We stayed here on our family ski holiday for half term with 10 of us. It is plenty big enough, yet warm and cosy and has a lovely big open plan kitchen living area, with a log burner, which was lovely for the family to all be in cooking/relaxing/children playing games at the same time yet not on top of each other. The views from the balcony are stunning and so relaxing to look out on over breakfast. It has a lovely rustic ski chalet feel but with nice modern touches like the kitchen, lovely white bed linen and a big bathroom with a roll top bath perfect for relaxing after a long days ski. It also has a separate boot room with warmers to dry your boots out so they are lovely and warm and dry in the mornings... a real plus.

It is set near to a bakery, shops, restaurants (short walk to 2 excellent restaurants) etc and yet feels nice and secluded. Nearby you have the choice of driving to either Las Clusaz or Le Grand Bornard, both lovely little towns with an abundance more and with skiing for all abilities. We loved Le Grand Bornand where you can ski right out the back and ski in powder through the trees with few others around!

We also went to Annecy one night for dinner which is only 20 minutes away and a must - beautiful! I think this chalet would be beautiful in the summer too and we are thinking of coming back to mountain bike and visit Annecy again.

We had such a lovely holiday with our family, the children had a ball - thank you for making our stay so memorable!

Winter skiing at La Clusaz at a cosy log cabin

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a great stay at Chalet Gueraudaz. The property was very easy to find from the directions provided, even in the dark.

The chalet was quaint, cosy and warm, the views were panoramic with snowy mountains in the distance. The rooms were clean and well equipped including the kitchen.

Michelle and her husband were very friendly and welcoming, offering extra local knowledge and were on hand immediately when we had an issue with the heating.

I am not a skier but would drop my husband and sons off in La Clusaz just 6 minutes away before returning to the chalet for some me time. I could walk to local shops and a cafe. La Clusaz offered many shops, bars and restaurants as well as a choice of ski hire shops. Would recommend eating at L'Outa at the top of the town. We look forward to returning in the summer.

Charming rustic chalet with breathtaking scenery

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful chalet is set in the mountains and has stunning views. A walk up the road will take you to a fantastic boulangerie selling the largest loaves we have ever seen! There are a couple of decent restaurants also within walking distance and an abundance of restaurants a 5 minute drive away in nearby La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornard. The chalet is extremely cosy and full of rustic charm, with a wood burning stove that warmed us up when we returned from the slopes. We were in very close proximity to the slopes, a very short easy drive, and the beautiful town of Annecy is only 30 mins drive away. ESF ski school was brilliant for kids and adults alike, and the instructors were brilliant. We all looked forward to our lessons every morning. Myself and the children had never skiied before and we came on in leaps and bounds as the week progressed. So much so that we are planning to ski again next year! The children were given little treats everyday and they both talked eagerly about their instructors, where they had skiied and what they had been learning. We loved our stay in St Jean de Sixt and we will definitely be back.
