The chalet is only 1 1/2 hours drive from Geneva Airport, it is a great family location, central to many excellent ski resorts, just a short drive away. I have extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and will be happy to chat with you to make sure you get the most out of your stay. You will be greeted by a friendly local who is also a valuable source of information.
The chalet suits couples or families with a car who prefer a peaceful and quiet location and suits self catering. However, restaurants, supermarkets, bars and laundrettes etc. are just 5 - 10 minutes away in St Jean D'Aulps or the pretty French village of Abondance (good pizza available here!).
