Chalet Cassis is a new chalet built in the traditional Savoyarde construction to the highest specification. Conveniently situated in the picturesque village of St Jean d' Aulps, in the Morzine region in the heart of the Porte de Soleil, in the French Alps which forms the largest linked area in the world for skiing by winter and multiple outdoors activities by summer. The area links the resorts of Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Chatel, St Jean d' Aulps, Morgins and Champery. The nearest chair lift is a 2 minute drive up the road (La Grande Terche) or by a free bus which stops 100 m from the chalet. See the chalet summary below for details.
Built to the highest quality, Chalet Cassis sleeps 10 comfortably with 4 bedrooms ( 2 double bedrooms and 2 triple rooms) each with its own private toilet and shower or bath. There is no over-crowding It has a fully equipped kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine ,tumble dryer and dishwasher. There is a comfortable lounge and dinning room, with under floor heating and a wood burning stove making it incredibly cosy on winter's evening, with patio doors leading to a wooden balcony where the hot tub is situated for winter or summer use.
The lounge is equipped with television (Satellite for English TV) and DVD player. The Chalet enjoys a stunning location with views overlooking the valley from St Jean d' Aulps towards Mount Evian ( so you can relax in the hot tub seeing where the famous bottled water originates from !!). Chalet Cassis is just over an hour away from Geneva airport and an easy 8 hour drive from the Channel ports/Euro Tunnel making it very accessible for even a short relaxing stay.
Saint Jean d'Aulps is a peaceful, typically French town, surrounded by beautiful scenery.It has a small supermarket 2 bakers and 3 restaurants as well as a variety of small shops. By staying just outside the main resorts you benefit from a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere while having the larger resorts of the extensive Portes du Soleil within easy reach.
There are loads of activities available for a fantastic holiday in winter or summer, including skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, walking, white water rafting, climbing and golf. The area is stunningly beautiful with amazing views over Mont Blanc, the Dents de Midi and Lake Geneva.
We primarily have the Chalet as our French home in the Alps and so have set it up to a very high standard for personal use ( rather than a generic rental property) This makes it full of character and very cosy. A tradition in the area is for chalets to be finished with one of the suits from a deck of cards. We have chosen hearts and this theme runs throughout the Chalet....
We look forward to welcoming you to Chalet Cassis
