The owners of already successful Chalet Joubarbe and Chalet This stylish newly-built chalet is one of a pair in the heart of the ski station of Chinaillon, Le Grand Bornand.
Linked only by their entrance halls, there are no party walls inside and the chalets even have their own private gardens. They also have fabulous views over the pistes, which are less than a kilometer away, and the ski bus stops at the end of the drive, so you will waste no time getting on the pistes.
Chalet Macaron is also just a short walk from the village (300m), where you can pick up fresh croissants in the morning and enjoy a delicious meal in the evening.
The chalet sleeps nine people, and there are two more beds in the games room. However, larger groups can book it with Chalet Meringue next door, which sleeps 16 and has plenty of room for everyone to eat together. This very special property is sure to be in big demand, so if it ticks all your boxes, check your dates and book now. You can't afford to hang around!
Our partner shop Rêves d'Hiver can deliver your skis to the chalet, come to the property to help you choose your equipment or even pick you up and drive you to their shop to benefit from their professional advice. Discounts and free ski store available.
This beautiful property is set over three floors, and is designed to be the perfect base for your Alpine holiday, whenever you choose to visit.
The ground floor is open plan, with a cosy living area - a huge sofa piled with cushions surrounds a central log burner. Behind that is the dining area which is open to the well-fitted kitchen. From here, doors open on to the sunny terrace, which is the perfect place to enjoy a meal or relax in the jacuzzi while you soak up the breathtaking views. There's also a toilet on this floor and a ski store.
The first and second floors each have two double bedrooms, a shower room, bathroom and a separate toilet. Quality bedlinen is combined with warm throws to make sure you all get a great night's sleep, whatever the weather. There are two more beds in the games room on the second floor, which is also a great hangout for teenagers or a quiet place to curl up with a book.
Three of the bedrooms and the games room also have access to the two sunny balconies, where you can enjoy the first coffee of the day or perhaps a final nightcap and some star-gazing.
ABOUT THE AREA ...
From Chalet Macaron, it's a 700m walk to the ski lift, but if you'd rather save your energy for the slopes, the ski bus stops at the end of the drive every 15 minutes.
With your Aravis ski pass, you've got all the Lake Annecy ski resorts at your disposal - more than 200km of perfect pistes. Even closer is a great sledge run and the start of the cross-country ski piste. Beginners in this sport will love the nearby Evo Nordic Park, which has a circuit featuring a variety of terrains, while boarders will appreciate the Snowpark.
Non-skiers can easily walk into Chinaillon village, Grand Bornand is only a short bus ride away or you could visit La Clusaz, where the heated indoor and outdoor pools are open all year round. Try snowshoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides - there is so much to do in the Aravis resorts!
In the summer, a network of walking and biking trails cover the mountains around Chalet Macaron, and you can pick up a route map for either at the tourist office in Chinaillon. Keen cyclists will be glad to find a secure bike store available to guests.
There's also a fantastic swimming pool complex in Le Grand Bornand, with a restaurant and grassy areas for picnics. If you're looking for something a little more challenging, there's a climbing school, via ferrata routes, a tree-top adventure park, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding are all nearby.
August sees the International Children's Festival in Le Grand Bornand - a week of puppet shows, circus acts and workshops, with a grand firework finale. You're in the heart of Reblochon country, so on your travels don't forget to pick up some of this delicious cheese from a local farm or market!
There are supermarkets in Chinaillon, Grand Bornand and Villard sur Thônes, and the medieval town of Annecy, just beyond Thônes, is a must for a day out, whatever the season. It offers a unique mix of shops, restaurants, galleries and museums, and Lake Annecy, said to be the cleanest lake in Europe, is a great place for water sports, swimming, cycling or just relaxing on the beach.
At the end of a busy day, head back to the chalet, leave your outdoor gear in the drying room ready for another day, and relax in the jacuzzi.
NOTE: Free wifi. Cleaning, linen and towels included!
