Tucked away at the end of the beautiful Manigod valley in Comburce, Chalet Manoe promises complete seclusion, whatever time of year you choose to visit.
This and the breathtaking views of Etale, Mont Charvin, Val Sulens and Tournette are what sold this property to the owners, who then spent a year creating the comfortable and stylish home that it is today.
In winter this idyllic location calls for snow tyres and chains, although the road to the chalet is cleared of snow every day. A 4wd vehicle will also be available for you to drive around in winter (an additional security deposit will be required). There's parking for three cars.
This south-facing chalet has a sunny garden and terrace with a pool and funky "bubble" sauna, and in the summer, it's a great base for walkers and bikers who want to explore the mountains.
It's so quiet, it's sometimes hard to believe it's just 4km to the village of Manigod, where you will find a bakery, as well as a restaurant, and only an hour from Geneva airport.
The traditional look of this lovely chalet hides a sleek and stylish interior that is the perfect base for a carefree mountain holiday.
With accommodation set over four floors, it sleeps up to 12 (maximum 8 adults) in three double bedrooms and a fabulous children's room, with three single "drawer" beds each of which transforms into a double bed.
There's a ski store with electric boot warmer and a wet room on the ground floor and three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.
The main living area is on the second floor, where you'll find a large open plan area with a sleek kitchen, dining area and leather sofas around a large open fire.
Either side of the fireplace are patio doors which open on to the balcony - it's the perfect place to enjoy the fabulous views in the summer. In the winter, retreat to the cosy living area on the mezzanine in the eaves of the property and enjoy a drink with friends, or relax on the cosy sofas in front of the flat screen television.
ABOUT THE AREA...
When you stay at Chalet Manoe, you'll feel like you're a million miles from the hustle and bustle of larger ski resorts. In fact, you're just a short drive from the glistening pistes at La Croix Fry and La Clusaz.
Parking in La Croix Fry and Merdassier is free and plentiful. You can ski the whole of the Aravis ski area on one ski pass - 220km of perfect pistes linked by pistes and ski buses. Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails on the Beauregard plateau, and there's plenty to keep non-skiers busy too. Choose from sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides, or let your tensions float away in the beautiful heated outdoor/indoor swimming pool complex at La Clusaz, as the snow falls around you.
Back at Chalet Manoe, the sauna is the perfect place to chill out after all that action!
The summer months are a great time to appreciate the tranquility of Chalet Manoe.
Sitting out in the garden, or perhaps enjoying a dip in the pool, all you can hear are birds singing and cowbells tinkling. But if you're looking for adventure, you'll be spoiled for choice in the beautiful Aravis mountains. Pack a picnic and enjoy walks from the door, or take the ski lift up into the mountains before walking or cycling back down.
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, or white-water rafting within a few miles of the chalet. For a family day out, try one or both of the Adventure Parks at Thônes or Talloires where you can experience the thrill of climbing on graded courses amongst the treetops whilst receiving information and training about security and having the support of trained guides.
Or take the next step, and have a go at via ferrata, a cross between hiking and climbing, where even children can safely explore the mountains via permanent routes built into the rock faces with cables, ladders and bridges to make sure you are always safe. There are via ferrata courses for a variety of ability levels at Thones, La Clusaz, and Chinaillon.
A day trip to medieval Annecy is a must. Set on the edge of the cleanest lake in Europe, this beautiful city has a good selection of unique shops, restaurants and galleries, as well as a wide range of water sports.
The road to Chalet Manoe is cleared of snow by the Manigod commune.
Please note that the private drive leading to Chalet Manoe is about 600m long. If you have a 4WD vehicle with snow tyres, you will have no problems at all. If not, we have a seven-seater 4WD vehicle for the use of winter guests which has snow tyres so that you don't need to put on and remove snow chains every time you go out. The vehicle also has a roof rack for your skis. If you wish to use this vehicle only to drive from the main road to the chalet, there will be no extra charge apart from a damage deposit of 2000 euros. If you wish to use this vehicle for longer trips (i.e. to drive to the resort etc), please contact the owners directly for more information after you have made the booking.
The pool is available from May to mid-September.
The deposit for the vehicle can be paid on your arrival by French cheque or by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) before you arrive.
In all cases, whether or not your own vehicle has four-wheel drive, we strongly recommend that you bring snow chains and ensure that your vehicle is properly equipped for driving in snowy weather in the Alps.
Please note that this service is not part of your OVO holiday booking and that OVO takes no responsibility for it.
The pool is available from the end of May to September
