The Rhone / French Alps / Haute-Savoie region
Thollon-les-Mémises is a village and commune in the Haute-Savoie département of eastern France. It has its own ski resort which extends from 1000 metres to 2000 metres. There are 50 km of lift served runs and there are 6 km of cross country trails.
The Thollon les Memises area
In a small but perfectly formed ski resort in the Rhone Alpes, The Grand Chalet in Thollon Les Memises is ideal for anyone wanting to avoid the hordes of winter sports fanatics that swarm to the more popular and larger ski areas of the Haute Savoie. Thollon Les Memises provides easy access to slopes and pistes that cater for all levels of ability so you certainly couldn't get much more in the way of variety, versatility or convenience anywhere else in the French Alps. Staying in Thollon Les Memises is more diverse than you'd expect as this is a destination close enough to the shores of Lac Leman that you can easily make this location a base for a summer vacation of watersports and sailing, or even hiking and climbing in the peaceful alpine meadows that replace the snowy blanket that settles all winter over the spectacular landscapes of the Rhone Alpes. The chalet can therefore be considered at any time of the year and once you've spent a fortnight of snowboarding and skiing in this outstanding northern corner of the Haute Savoie it will give you all the excuse you need to return during the summer just for a truly comprehensive experience of this region's fabulous year-round potential.

We recently spent a week at the Grand Chalet in Thollon Les Memises, there was 10 of us in the party - both adults and children. The facilities were excellent and we did not feel hemmed in at all there was plenty of space for us all to be more than comfortable.
The decor and facilities at the chalet were very very good, with a nice mix of modern ameneties and the mountain chalet ambiance.
We had just one little mishap, where the electricity was cut off, however this was dealt with promptly by the owners representative in Thollon and by the owners themselves, who I hasten to add live in New Zealand, we weren't inconvenienced too much and the children thought it was really fun to go to bed by candle light, we were more than warm as there is a very efficient wood burning stove in the main area of the chalet. The electricity was put on again the following morning so no harm done.
I would recommend this chalet to anyone who would like to spend a week with family and friends in the winter for skiing or even the summer for mountain and lakeside activities.

There's not many places about that would sleep all ten of us (family) so when we found this one we thought great. We spent a week Sking. The house was lovely perfect for us they had every thing we needed. The distance from the house to chair lifts ok but would need a car as to far to walk all the way. Kids had a fantastic time in the the very big garden area. Lovely place to come back to after a long day out about. Lovely views from the balcony. Just nice that we could all stay together and everything we needed was there.

Hello, we really had a very good stay in the grand and little chalets with my family (10 people). There is a lot of room, and absolutely all what you can expect for a winter holiday, kitchen well equiped, a washing machine, a dryer machine... There is also a garage and a large garden where children can play.
To conclude, this area is ideal in winter for skiing with the family when the children are young. You will see very beautiful panoramas on the lake and on the mountains.
