Description

Special DISCOUNTS for families of 4 or less on the advertised prices, just ask. We can sleep up to 8. Le Chatox is a four bedroom, two bathroom spacious, open plan chalet with luxury facilities completed in July 2009 with private parking for up to 4 cars. Its idea for friends and families to join up for a taste of the 'real alps'! We are just 55mins from Geneva airport. We can offer the best cycling terrain on earth on roads ridden by top cyclists, skiing in 5 resorts all just 30mins away and at the kind of prices you won't believe compared to the bigger resorts (£80 for a weekly lift pass!). The ski resorts are perfect for young families, beginners and intermediates. Les Bauges (the Wallows) is a national park and area of outstanding natural beauty so for walking and unwinding its a perfect retreat.. You are based in the sky at 700m altitude and a short drive from Annecy, Aix-les-Bains and Albertville for day trips and excursions. Mt Blanc is a guest favourite. Natural light is a huge part of the design of this modern yet rustic alpine retreat. A private garden area means children can play safely. It has stunning mountain views from its huge terrace balcony and a wood burning stove - perfect for a romantic evening in with a glass of wine. Many guests have commented on the star gazing at night from the terrace. Great for bird watchers, butterfly catchers and people you just need that special pull of the mountain air and a tranquil environment. Its truly spectacular! Come and get 'Chatoxed'! See Chatox reviews on Trip Advisor .

Further details

There is a heating supplement from autumn to spring of £80 for full occupancy.

Home Made Meals !!

We can provide great home made cuisine from local neighbour Melanie. Ask for her menu. Great for late arrivals after a long day travelling on the first night or after skiing or when you just want to put your feet up!

Further details indoors

Open, spacious and with natural light bursting through, Le Chatox is our home from home waiting for you to experience. Underfloor heating keeps you cosy in winter plus the wood burning stove for the real alpine feeling of warmth and comfort. In summer you can dine out on the terrace balcony and hold BBQ's on patio. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Wendy is a keen cook and has made sure that she has everything needed to bake, roast, boil, grill and fondue! Relax in the lounge, play a CD, watch a movie from the film collection or play cards, board games or guitar with the kids! Bird watch with binoculars and watch the amazing star show at night.
The lounge on the first level has a large L shaped sofa looking directly at the mountains.There is an additional two seater sofa to pull in for cosy evenings around the wood burning stove and even a rocking chair if you really need to nod off early…. Electric blinds fold down on the touch of a button on the entire 1st floor and in the morning its magical to let the sun burst through with a flick of a switch.

The open plan area moves back into the large kitchen area which is modern, bright and fully equipped with the additions of a microwave, toaster and Gaggia coffee machine for fans of freshly ground espressos and cappuccinos. Morning tea or coffee on the bedroom balcony is a great way to start to the day… Also on the first level is a large shower room with double shower tray so you can freshen up to your favourite tracks on the ipod shower player. A utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer is available and can double as a boot room for skiers to dry out there linings on the underfloor heating.

The bedrooms are all on the second floor – one double, three twin. There is an additional balcony upstairs fronting two bedrooms and a large bathroom with additional shower. All twin rooms have a velux window and blackout blind.
The cave/garage on the ground floor can store all your sports equipment, bikes and skiing gear and keep your car safely away from the snow if skiing.

“A real gem to escape to, a rare find, simply lovely.”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2012

Be assured that we are telling lots of people about Le Chatox, it’s not always easy to find the perfect holiday accommodation but yours pretty much had everything and we are hard-nosed chalet users! So well presented with everything we needed, a real home from home with special touches. It’s really well placed for easy access to skiing in various resorts (only an hour away to some of the major runs) and you were right about the challenging cycling – perfect for us. We did a 60km and the run to lake Annecy for a swim. Also did the cycle route round Annecy lake one afternoon. Finished up with a swim and a picnic at the grassy beach by the campsite – another great day. Did the walks to the Cascade du Pisseau, Mum especially pleased she was more than able to handle the rocky paths and also through the woods to Compote. We decided to take one day out to cycle up to the start of the climb to Mont Colombier and then walk up. It is very ….very… up but we made it for a late lunch on the summit at 2043m! Perfect weather, no wind, great vis and 24 degrees – incredible 360 views including Mont Blanc and the distant Aiguille du Midi station! Jez had a go at the Chatox time trial- using his touring bike and did a very respectable 12 minutes and a few seconds (it’s in the book). It’s very addictive!! Caroline did it in 17 minutes so not as competitive but she is not a speed racer and had quite a heavy bike so was happy to have finished it – one of the few females to put down a time it seems! The pizzas at the hut by the Carrefour are delicious and VERY BIG! We also were chuffed to find the traditional bread shop with the working oven at one of the little villages on your favorite 16km cycle. All in all a very active but memorable holiday – made so much more special by having such a great place to return to each night. Will remember the two spectacular thunderstorms, one on the first night and one on the last night (how well timed was that!!) – martinis on the two big balconies taking in the wonderful views and breakfast on the decking in the morning sun. How lucky you are to have such a fantastic place to escape to. Now that we have been ‘chatoxed’, hopefully will be able to visit again. Thank you for sharing your home. Bev and family from Jersey, Channel Islands

Owner's reply: I don't think we've had guests who packed so much into so little time. We're so glad you had such an adventure at Le Chatox with your biking and hiking! You know you're welcome back any time.
