A characterful 100 year old chalet alongside the piste at the base of the main skiing area of Notre Dame de Bellecombe in the French Alps. Sleeping up to 8 people comfortably, the chalet is ski in / ski out, just a 5 minute walk from main ski lifts, ski hire, ski school 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 track 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 ski in / ski out and very close to 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 alongside the chalet links the village of Notre Dame de Bellecombe and the ski slopes of Val 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 cross country skiing and snowshoeing, and downhill 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.
