A cosy, calm, well-appointed 3 bedroom chalet in the heart of the stunning French Aravis mountains, 15 minutes from the mountain resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz (skiing, cycling, mountain biking and some spectacular hiking).
Good for couples, solo adventurers, walking and cycling breaks and families (with kids).
Chalet Tête Blanche is a quiet get-away in the heart of the Aravis Mountains. Simple, but well appointed, it is a typical wooden chalet, with fabulous mountain views and a balcony from which to enjoy them.
The chalet has 3 bedrooms. On the ground floor is a dining area, a kitchen, wc, bathroom, sitting room, a mezzanine area and a double, ensuite bedroom. On the first floor there is one single room and one room with two single beds. In addition there is a sofa bed in the sitting room or a spare mattress which can be used in either of the upstairs bedrooms or on the mezzanine.
The chalet is surrounded by a garden and has a patio and barbeque outside, with a table for al fresco dining available in the summer.
Chalet Tête Blanche is in a small hamlet, Termine, a kilometer from the local bakery in Le-Petit-Bornand-Les-Glieres. In 15 minutes (by car) you are in the ski/ mountain resorts of Le Grand Bornand or La Clusaz - with all they have to offer (skiing, mountain biking, road biking, stunning hiking, swimming pools, cinema, crazy golf, paragliding, tourist information etc).
Further afield are the lakeside cities of Geneva (40 mins) and Annecy (45 mins) and the mountain playground of Chamonix, with it's stunning hiking and access to Mont Blanc. In less than an hour by car you have access to some of Europe's most breathtaking Alpine scenery, including Mont Blanc, and Cirque Fer à Cheval.
There is a folder of local things to do at the chalet and many maps and guide books offering suggestions for walks in the area.
You'll have access to the whole chalet and garden, and will usually be welcomed by our local host on the day of your arrival. If for any reason you are arriving late, there is a key safe box allowing you late entry.

While we are not close by, we are always happy to take enquiries during your stay. You will also be provided with a local contact in case of emergency.
Nous parlons francais et notre hôte local parle bien le francais et l'anglais. Hablamos Espanol, y Portugues tambem.
Other things to note
We have chosen to make our chalet a quiet and peaceful retreat from our busy day-to-day lives. For this reason it has no TV and no wifi. There is however a big box of board games and playing cards for entertainment (and there is 4G coverage at the house!).
