Tucked away in the corner of this attractive little hamlet, Le Chatox gives you one of the most stunning views from any chalet you'll find in the alps. So much so, that we went the extra mile and doubled the size of the balcony so you can now dine outside or just lounge under the spot lights taking in the view. In fact, turn off the light and wonder at the night sky as you enjoy your fav nightcap star gazing! In the morning the view will change hourly so grab the chatox binoculars to spot the birds of prey and the Les Bauges wildlife. We always like to have a chat with prospective guests to make sure we've got everything you're looking for to make the most of your holiday in Les Bauges (the Wallows), an area of outstanding natural beauty, heritage and tradition. It makes a great base to explore a wide range of outdoor activities or to simply relax and chill in the fresh mountain air with stunning views from your private terrace balcony or garden patio. Situated on a hillside on the outskirts of Le Chatelard in the heart of the Massif des Bauges regional park, Le Chatox enjoys superb views through the valley towards the mountains and is a just 30 minutes from the beautiful towns of Annecy,Chambery and Aix-Les Bains.
The lounge is open plan with an L shaped sofa for 6 and a two seater sofa. We also have a rocking chair for bird watching and telescope for star gazing! There's a book selection, games cupboard and guitar if you play. TV and DVD with a CD film selection for evenings in or chess and cards if you prefer. WiFI through Le Chatox. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, Gaggia coffee machine, and Wendy's spice cabinet! There's a fondu, BBQ and raclette set for meat and cheese fondue lovers. The Morso Squirrel wood stove puts out big heat in winter to couple with underfloor heating and there is a bathroom/shower on each floor. Le Chatox was built with light and space in mind so we have a sliding door to a patio at the side of the chalet to the garden with 4 sun loungers. A great area to BBQ.
The terrace balcony is huge and you can entertain there seating 8 at the table for major dinners and BBQ's. We tend to spend most time here as we chose the plot deliberately for the stunning view of Dent de Rossanz or 'booby mountain' to our guests. You'll see why on our website www.lechatox.com which has more info and is worth a look.
In the 'cave' or ground floor is garage parking and room for our full size competition table tennis. On a fine day just wheel it out in the sun! We also have 4 tennis rackets for the courts in the village.
Our village Le Chatelard remains unspoilt and retains a certain rustic charm with its old store fronts and little alleys leading up towards the church. It is a quiet, friendly village with a large supermarket, bakery, bar and excellent restaurant, tourist information, bank, post office and a local food market every Friday morning.
Les Bauges is a walkers paradise. Great family skiing is here at unbeatable prices away from crowds. There are 5 resorts all within 30 mins from your home. See the info on the website www.lechatox.com . This is cycling heaven with awesome routes used in the Tour de France. I can advise on routes for all abilities. Beautiful Annecy is nearby for swimming and exploring the old town called 'little venice'. It was recently voted one of the most beautiful places to visit in France. Our local lake with restaurant and flumes, tennis and fun for little ones is just 10 minutes away! The French will wonder how you discovered their secret resort! All just 1 hour from Geneva airport. 7.30hrs from Calais. Just get in touch with Paul or Wendy for a chat so we can tailor your holiday personally.
