About the property

1/2 bedroom chalet with mountain views and free Wi-Fi

Chalet Le Pînpiolé is a detached, south-facing chalet with superb views of the surrounding mountains and the Giffre Valley. It is located on the piste in the hamlet of Le Planay just outside the village of Sixt Fer à Cheval, and is a 10-minute drive from Samoëns.

Available for self-catering winter and summer rental, the chalet is set out on split levels and is large enough to comfortably sleep up to 5. Chalet Le Pînpiolé is fully equipped and has a warm and welcoming Savoyard interior which makes it the perfect retreat after a day's activities in the Alps.

About The Owner

We live and work in London and love cycling, running, skiing and mountain walking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2006

Why The Owner chose Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval

We first fell in love with skiing and then fell in love with Sixt Fer à Cheval after a winter holiday in 2005. We were keen to have a mountain retreat but with easy access to skiing and other alpine activities. We are not that interested in après-ski - the village and the rest of the valley retain their authentic character and are best suited to a family holiday or retreat. The village itself is also very popular in summer and the chalet has direct access to a number of hikes and mountain refuges without taking the car. In winter it's only a short drive to the main ski lift in Samoëns, or a short walk to the pistes in Sixt.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is located in a quiet, peaceful location above the village partway up Mont Buet. It benefits from tremendous mountain views, but only a short drive or walk to the village centre. Being located in an elevated position, the chalet basks in sun for longer than other places located in the valley - perfect for relaxing at the end of the day in winter or summer.

Super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine!

Merci pour l'accueille, chalet propre correspond totalement à la description.

Suggestions: équiper le chalet d'appareil raclette et ou fondue.

Le chalet et proche des pistes mais attention il est impératif de prévoir des chaînes car si il neige ça monte très raide ( il y a eu des accidents lors de notre séjour)
