A warm welcome awaits you at the Chalet Les Avignieres. A well equipped, delightful chalet with a sundeck / balcony offering spectacular views of the French Alps.


It is a traditional Savoyard build and well equipped with those niceties of life (dish washer, BBQ area etc!), set in an acre of ground and surrounded by fields.

Your accommodation is the top floor of this delightful Savoyard chalet, for up to four people. (Additional occupancy is available on request).

Set close enough to a village to ensure a tranquil holiday and yet only minutes mountain bike ride (through beautiful scenery) away from the patisserie and other amenities.

Access could not be easier with Geneva airport only 45 minutes away (ideal for Easyjet and RyanAir flights from many UK locations) and Cluses, the nearest motorway point, 15 minutes.

A holiday in this lovely region of the Haute Savoie can be as relaxing or energetic as you wish to make it. Days can be spent hill walking, mountain bike riding, horse riding, white water rafting, canoeing, canyoning or paragliding. However for those wishing a more relaxing break there is trout fishing or just lazing by the river enjoying the French way of lifeÖGood Food, Good Wine and an unhurried pace.

Nearby Morillon offers a pretty lake for family picnics or swimming and the medieval town of SamoŽns has a superb swimming pool with what must be the best view in Europe.

For tremendous skiing in the winter time you are 5 minutes drive away from the large Telecabine at Morillon transporting you up into the huge ski area (260 kms of pistes) of the Grand Massif with plenty of mountain restaurants and fine runs. Upon your return why not call in one of the friendly bars in the village, or eat at the Savoyard restaurants. See the 'Winter Fun' page for more details.

With a new high-capacity telecabine system installed in SamoŽns,the chalet offers quick access to the pistes of the Grand Massif (this links the five resorts of SamoŽns, Morillon, Sixt, Les Carroz and Flaine). You can drive to the Grand Massif Express lift in ten minutes. Transport can be arranged if you do not have a car.

The area covers 260+kms of skiing - more than 130 runs at all levels of ability with some of France's most modern high-capacity lifts. Pistes range from the highest (2640m) at Flaine, with its spectacular views of Mont Blanc, through to the challenging downhills of SamoŽns itself and the gentle slopes or pretty wooded trails of the family skiing areas it shares with Les Carroz and Morillon. The remarkable "Cascades" run from Flaine to Sixt is 16km long. There are English-speaking instructors throughout the Grand Massif and special facilities for minding small children.

In addition to this huge area there are also 67 kms of groomed cross country ski tracks.
