We are very well positioned for you to ski a variety of resorts from our self catering apartment. Some of these resorts include: Les Carroz (less than 15 minutes), Flaine and the Grand Massif domain (30 minutes), Les Gets (20 minutes), Morzine (25 minutes), Megeve (40 minutes), Chamonix (45 minutes).Within an hours' travelling is Contamines and St Gervais, beautiful traditional spa villages. Visit the traditionally French resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand, still little known to most British people. Huge ski area easily accessible.
Spring is a lovely time to visit the Alps - wild flowers cheer the meadows.
After a long cold winter and not too brilliant spring why not give yourself a treat and have a few days on the Alps, a chance to unwind and get ready for summer. May and June deals to be had, please contact us.
Wonderful area for cycling. In 2011 the Tour de France came by again, so close you could walk to the Col de Chatillon to watch and cheer your favourite cyclist. Next year why not bring your bike and cycle the same route? Many come to cycle the testing Col de Colombier, the route up to Flaine and many other cols in the locality. Use of garage for safe keeping of bicycles. By self catering you have so many options available.
Golf: There are numerous golf courses within easy travel of our self catering apartments. Stay here and visit the following courses: Flaine at 1844 metres, Les Gets, Chamonix, Megeve, Annecy and Thonon. Switzerland is a short drive away and again accessible for a day's golfing in superb countryside.
We can arrange to meet you at the airport and on a daily basis take you to a different golf course every day. Green rates are much cheaper than UK prices.
Why go to the same old courses in Spain and Portugal? Play on really interesting courses with amazing views that cannot be matched anywhere.
Activities: This part of the Alps is well known for its activities. You can have thrills on paragliders, rafting the rivers, mountaineering or rock climbing. Gentler activities such as walking, cycling, tennis, horse riding are also available. Of course you can just sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery or go touring for lakes and forests and plateaus full of history.
The 17th Stage Mountain Day of the 96th Tour de France 2009 took place in this area and went past our lane. Come and ride the passes that Mark Cavendish & Wiggins & so many other famous names have completed. We can drive you to various passes if you would prefer to cycle down or collect you at the end of a long, satisfying day.
All activities are covered here: choose one and we can tell you where you can indulge your interest or passion.
I am originally from North Wales and have lived and worked in Spain and another part of France before moving to the Haute Savoie. The hamlet I now live in is close to many ski resorts, skiing being one the many activities I like to take part in. I also cycle, walk and paraglide, this being the perfect area for activities.
Having spent many trips in this region, either skiing or paragliding or climbing in earlier years, it seemed a good idea to live here permanently. This chalet offered a good size of property with amazing views and access to the ski resorts close by as well as motorways and shops for more practical day to day living.
The chalet has many reasons why my husband and I love it so much. We renovated it over a period of three years so are very proud of what we have achieved. When we first saw it, it looked sad and unloved but even then it had charm and the views which never change. Now it is a fully functioning chalet with two separate modern apartments, large gardens and orchard. At night the badgers come to raid the fallen walnuts and by day the woodpeckers manage to make off with a few too! St Sigismond is a small hamlet with lovely views and clean air and is part of Faucigny small villages group. All these villages still operate as they have done for so many years with a wonderful assortment of tourist facilities.
