Good enough chalet in very nice surroundings in typical French hamlet. Needs bigger beds to accommodate most guests, though. Rooms are adequate but sparsely furnished.

About the neighbourhood
The Portes du Soleil (doors of the sun) is an area of mountains in France and Switzerland just south of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). The house is within this region and is located in a small hamlet just above the village of La Baume. It is situated overlooking the valley of the river Dranse which runs from the Haute Savoie mountains into Lac Leman. The house faces south-east into the valley and gets the morning sun. Its altitude is approx. 800 metres above sea level and local mountains are typically 1800 to 2000 metres high. There are interesting places to vist nearby, including the Gorge du Pont de Diable at Le Jotty, a medieval abbey at St Jean D'Aulps, and the incredible mountain setting of Lac du Montriond. There are many local walks or alternatively you can just relax and enjoy the cl...
Getting around
You really do need a car as the location is very rural, though not really isolated. There are no shops in the village so you to drive for basic shopping, though it is possible to walk/run the 3km across the valley to Le Biot (it is double the distance by road). A car is essential to make the most of your visit to this outstandingly beautiful area.
