The Rhone/French Alps region
Haute Savoie is a spectacularly beautiful mountain region of France with great scenery, savoyard gourmet specialities, and a huge variety of activities and places of interest.St Jean d'Aulps is a thriving village with shops, restaurants and bars. It is a short distance from Morzine - the major town in the region - and about 30 minutes from Lake Geneva
St Jean d'Aulps
St Jean d'Aulps is an ideal base from which to take advantage of all that the area has to offer. It combines the charm of a traditional Alpine village and local ski resort with easy access to multiple entry points into the Portes du Soleil skiing and mountain biking area. Ardent above Lake Montriand gives swift access to Chatel, Switzerland and Avoriaz, Les Gets is a short 15 minute drive ... and of course Morzine is even closer.
It is a 30 minute drive down the spectacular Dranse valley ( a bit longer if you go rafting or canyoning down!) to Lake Geneva and its spa towns of Thonon and Evian, the mediaeval village of Yvoire, and the cultural mecca of Montreux.

"Cosy chalet, nice location"
This is a cosy chalet, well located for the ski lifts at La Terche and not far out of Morzine for the good choice of restaurants. Great for families with plenty of games and relaxed feel .The kitchen is well equipped with nice new oven and hob.
