This 4 star chalet is an almost perfect choice being just 150m from the La Ruade piste. This is a blue run that descends into La Clusaz and at the end of the day, competent skiers can ski through the trees straight to the back door, whilst less confident skiers can return to the starting point and walk the 150 m back to the chalet. Just minutes from the Mini Loup ski lift, 500m away and with the ski bus also stopping 500m away, you have access to 220km of pistes and 95 lifts, all covered by the Aravis ski pass.
The chalet offers six bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 (with a maximum of 8 adults), so there is plenty of room for two or three families or perhaps a group of friends to enjoy this beautiful area from this mid-terrace property with fabulous views over the Beauregard plateau and Etale. The chalet is also situated just 3km from the centre of La Clusaz, on a quiet road (Rte du Cret du Merle), which is regularly cleared of snow in the winter. However, the altitude (1300m) means you will need snow chains on your car or at the very least, snow tyres. There are two spacious garages, with space to park a further two cars.
The owner of the chalet, a Paris hotelier, has used his experience in the hospitality business to make sure this beautiful property has everything you need for a perfect holiday. Brushed wood, neutral colours and quality furnishings and bed linen have been used to great effect , making it a comfortable and practical choice for guests.
The accommodation is set over four floors. Enter on the lower ground floor, where you will find a double bedroom with great views, a bathroom as well as the laundry and ski room.The main living area is on the next floor up. There is a lovely open-plan kitchen and dining area, which opens on to the rear terrace, and a spacious living room with sofas and the television at one end, and more seating around a wood-burning stove at the other. This room also has fantastic views and a balcony at the front.
There are three double bedrooms on the next floor, one of which is en suite, as well as a family bathroom and separate toilet.
Families with young children will love the top floor - an open plan space separated into three sleeping areas - one with a double bed, another with a single bed, and a delightful children’s area with three cosy beds, a play area and a treasure chest full of soft toys!
There’s lots to do for non-skiers with the ice-skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, or you could try sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides. If you'd prefer something a little more relaxing, let your cares float away in the village’s heated outdoor pool and spa - definitely a great choice in the summer or winter.
