A characterful 100 year old chalet at the base of the main skiing area of Notre Dame de Bellecombe in the French Alps. Sleeping up to 8 people, the chalet is just a 5 minute walk from main ski lifts, ski hire and restaurants and is also in an excellent position for summer activity holidays in the mountains.
The chalet is over 100 years old and is situated at the end of a farm trick in an elevated position alongside the piste at 1400m altitude. It has panoramic views around the valley from its large south facing balcony and is just a short walk from ski lifts and all the amenities. Oozing character with its old wood and beams, the chalet was dismantled and brought down from the mountain many years ago, to the prime spot that it occupies today. The piste links the village of Notre Dame de Bellecombe and the ski slopes of Vale D’Arly with the large ski domain of the Espace Diamant. Espace Diamant has over 157 alpine pistes, 80 ski lifts and 120km of Nordic tracks.
The chalet is in a quiet valley of outstanding natural beauty between Mont Blanc and Lake Annecy in the French Alps. During the ski season a wide variety of winter sports are available on the doorstep including Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, and skiing for all levels and abilities. During the summer months the alpine villages come alive with local fetes and there are lots of activities in the vicinity from walking and climbing to hot air ballooning and biking. The Tour de France often passes in front of the chalet.
Detailed directions provided on booking. The chalet is 1.25 hours drive from Geneva.

The chalet has three bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people. There’s one double bedroom with ensuite wet room, one twin, and a twin plus small double separated by a partition. Additional sleeping accommodation for up to four more people is available in the owner’s chalet below - two small bunk rooms with shared kitchenette, lounge, shower room and WC. The chalet is spacious (total area 100m2) and has a triple aspect lounge and dining area with a large open fireplace. There is also a small seating area on the landing with a large south facing window. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a dishwasher and washing machine, and wifi throughout.
The chalet has a large and sheltered south facing balcony which in winter overlooks the ski domain of the Espace Diamant and in summer looks out to farmland, pastures and pine forests. There’s a lawn and patio area with BBQ and campfire within its own 2000m2 of land.
The owners have lived in Geneva for almost 30 years and are on hand to answer any questions you may have. For winter bookings they will be on hand to help direct you through the farmyard and up the track - 4x4 plus winter tyres are an absolute necessity in winter (alternatively, vehicles can be parked near the farm and the owners can transport luggage up to the chalet).
