About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, comfortable family house with mountain views.

Chalet Arthur was built in 1989 as a family home. Its 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 twins) together with 2 beds on a mezzanine floor provide excellent accomodation for up to 8 guests. The ground floor has 1 bedroom and an L shaped lounge with fireplace and a spacious dining area. Patio doors lead out to the small eating terrace and garden which adjoins the owners farmhouse and field. A new kitchen was installed in 2012 with oven, 4 ring induction hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher, everything you need. The ground floor has a shower room with basin, WC, and washing machine, while upstairs there is a bathroom with a large bath/shower, basin and WC. The Television, DVD player and some games are in the separate mezzanine lounge.

The chalet has a garage and off road parking for 2-3 cars.

We strive at all times to maintain and improve the chalet which has recently secured three star status in the new French system.

Winter Activities: The Portes du Soleil is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world. If that was not enough there are many other large resorts within 1 1/2 hours - Flaine, Verbier, Crans Montana , Argentiere etc. For beginners the village ski bus passes the door, but we reccommend a car to profit from all the areas on your Portes Du Soleil skipass.

Summer Activities: There are hundreds of marked footpaths through the local Alps and mountains and Chatel has an impressive range of mountain bike routes accessible by the skilifts.

Lake Geneva has shopping, beaches, lake excursions, thermal baths and innumerable summer festivals, such as the Montreux Jazz Festival.

Chalet Arthur has a large garden in which to relax and enjoy the mountain and forest views or have a BBQ. May and June are months which enjoy an explosion of summer flowers and colours.

Out of season: the pleasures of this valley are often as good in low season as in the busy holiday periods. The flowers can be at their best and the ski and walking routes are quieter. Local fetes are colourful and interesting and it can be cheaper both to travel here and stay here.

Why Richard Anderson chose Portes du Soleil area

Chalet Arthur was our own holiday home for 10 years before we decided to live permanently in the France. As pleasant in summer as in winter we realised that it would make an excellent retirement location. Now established in a renovated Abondance farmhouse next door we enjoy sharing our pleasure with holidaymakers from all over the world.

excellentes vacances

  • 5 of 5

On se sent comme chez soi dans ce chalet tres bien conçu pour vivre des vacances faciles et heureuses en famille , et tres bien equipé , rien ne manque des draps à la luge pour les enfants, en passant par la machine à laver , l appareil à raclette, la tele et le lecteur de dvd sur la mezzanine, etc... On a adoré le poele à bois pour l ambiance des soirees.

Joli environnement de petits chalets de bois et pistes de ski de fond à 100m.

On part en se disant qu on a envie de revenir.

séjour familial début juillet très agréable

  • 4 of 5

dans un chalet très propre, fonctionnel, avec terrain donnant des possibilités de jeux aux enfants ,des repas en extérieur nous avons trouvé que c' était très bien situé à proximité de nombreuses balades aux magnifiques paysages,à proximité du torrent où les enfants pouvaient se ra fraîchir;

une grande surface à 500 m n'est pas négligeable non plus

les propriétaires très accueillants et serviables

le petit bémol, on entend un peu trop le bruit de la route voisine

un souper au "fer rouge" a ravi la famille par la qualité de la table et l'originalité de l'ambiance

A recommander

une famille normande

Perfect, comfortable, complete and clean chalet

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is very nice and clean. Everything you need is there. We were with 4 adults and two small children, even for more persons are beds availible. Richard and Angela are very kind and hospital and will help you with everything, also the neighbour will help you. Very close is a big supermarket were you can buy everything. Also fuelstation next to the supermarket. In the village are good restaurants, you need to make a reservation for your visit. From this place you can easily visit Geneve, Annecy, Yvoire, Lausanne, Montreux, Chamonix and other more nice places. We recommend Yvoire and Cailler chocolat in Broc and Gruyeres.
