This stylish newly-built 5 star semi-detached chalet is on an old farm, L'Alpage du Pralor, between the beautiful village of Manigod and the ski station of La Croix Fry.
This stunning south-facing chalet is the last property in a lane off the main Manigod road, so you won't be disturbed by passing traffic. In fact, it's so well sound-proofed, you are unlikely to be disturbed by any noise at all.
You'll need your car, as it's a 1km walk to to the ski bus stop in the winter, 4km to La Croix Fry and 3km to the shops and restaurants of Manigod. However, the advantage of this quiet location is the stunning view across the Manigod valley to the mountains beyond.
In the summer, the farm is surrounded by lush green pastures, which are flat around the property - a great place for children to play. Local craftsmen were brought in for the construction, using traditional methods and stone from the old farm where possible, to ensure the building sits comfortably in its surroundings.
No detail has been left to chance in the design and furnishing of this fabulous property. Sleeping 8 people in 4 en suite double bedrooms (one of which is on the ground floor), Le Nova comfortably accommodates 4 couples, two families or a large group.
Each stylish bedroom has two single beds which can be joined to make doubles on request, and sumptuous French bed linen, in line with the owner’s determination to support local businesses.
There is plenty of storage in each bedroom, as well as a flat screen television with French and English channels, and wifi is available throughout the property. Most bedrooms also have a desk and chair. The bathrooms are stylish and modern, and come complete with soft towels and bathrobes.
In the open plan living area, the well-equipped oak kitchen, which has windows on two sides to make the most of the fabulous views and the light, was built by a local carpenter, and makes cooking for a crowd a pleasure. The top-quality furniture and soft furnishings were chosen with the help of an interior designer, and combine rustic mountain style in neutral colours with modern comfort.
When it’s cold outside, snuggle up on the cosy L-shaped sofa in front of the woodburning stove, but in warmer weather you’ll want to be relaxing on the sunny balconies, or enjoying a barbecue on the east facing terrace. Skiers will appreciate the ski racks and boot warmers and will love relaxing in the private hammam and jacuzzi after an exhilarating day on the pistes.
ABOUT THE AREA
When you stay at Le Nova, your peaceful surroundings could make you feel like you're miles from anywhere. In fact, the pistes of La Croix Fry are just a few minutes' drive away and parking is free.
The whole of the Annecy ski resorts, including La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, are easily accessible, giving you more than 200km of skiing. Floodlights on some of the pistes mean you can even ski until 1am in La Clusaz on certain dates, and the weekly torchlit descent is an experience you'll never forget. Plus there are dedicated pistes for trying out paret racing, a home grown Manigod sport!
Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails to choose from, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides. For the ultimate in winter fun, try paragliding on skis or ski joering - skiing while towed by a horse!
We'll be happy to welcome you to our sports shop, Veyrat Sports, in Manigod-Croix Fry where we will keep a parking space for you on request, right at the bottom of the ski slopes. All year round we'll be available to advise you on ski and mountain sports equipment.
In the summer, there’s no better place to relax than the two terraces of Le Nova (each of them equipped with a table and chairs for 8). But with so much to discover, you’ll regret it if you don’t make the most of it!
There’s no shortage of walks, from mountain trails to hiking on the Gliéres or walks to the Beauregard plateau begin at the front door. There is a table tennis table set up behind the chalet.
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, mountain-biking, karting or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod. Via ferrata is a great family day out, with children as young as eight able to explore the mountains on iron walkways, secured to a harness.
If your idea of a holiday is a little less energetic, try the free open-air swimming pools at the Col de Merdassier, sample the other open air pools at Le Grand Bornand or in La Clusaz, or pack up a picnic and enjoy a gentle nature walk.
Please note this chalet is a semi detached property, particular attention was paid to high quality sound proofing during construction.
The access to the separate hammams for each apartment is via the garage.
We can only accommodate a maximum of one baby.
The table football, ping pong table and deck chairs are not available in winter.
The table football and ping pong table are located in the garage and for the use of both properties.
NOTE: Free wifi. Cleaning, linen and towels included!
