Holiday Rental House
Alpine Chalet 1819 is situated in Vacheresse, in the beautiful Vallee d’Abondance, equidistant between Chatel & Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). It is located in a traditional French hamlet with working farms, & in the warmer months numerous herds of Abondance cows, which are only found in this valley (look out for their “spectacles”!). The house is in an extremely peaceful location, surrounded by open fields, & with rolling mountain views. We are approximately 25km from the world famous spa town of Evian-les Bains, just over an hours drive to Montreux, & 30 minutes drive to the numerous beaches of Lac Leman in the summer months. We are just over one hour’s transfer from Geneva airport, with the nearest slopes a mere 10 minutes drive, and Chatel, one of the main Portes du Soleil resorts, only 20 ...Alpine Chalet 1819 is situated in Vacheresse, in the beautiful Vallee d’Abondance, equidistant between Chatel & Lac Leman (Lake Geneva).

We are just over one hour’s transfer from Geneva airport, with the nearest slopes a mere 10 minutes drive, and Chatel, one of the main Portes du Soleil resorts, only 20 minutes away, sitting on the Swiss border. There are a number of ski stations within a very short drive including: Bernex (10 mins), Abondance (10 mins), & La Chappelle d’Abondance (15 mins). The Portes du Soleil ski domain offers over 650km of pistes in both France & Switzerland, with exceptional opportunities for skiers of all abilities. In the summer, many of the ski areas become mountain biking locations, catering for bikers of all levels. Alpine Chalet 1819 is a beautiful 200 year old Savoyard farmhouse, which has been sympathetically restored and refurbished by local craftsmen, to create a luxury chalet which offers both fully catered & self-catering accommodation for 6 – 8 guests. Only the finest, natural materials have been used, showcasing beautiful woodwork, complemented by contemporary design elements, high thread count linen, vintage furniture, and wi-fi throughout. The ground floor has a spacious open-plan feel, with both the living area and kitchen benefitting from exceptional views across the valley to the mountains beyond. There are comfy sofas around the antique wood-burning fire - a lovely environment in which to relax after a hard day’s skiing and enjoy a vin chaud or a hot chocolate. In the kitchen-dining area there is a farmhouse dining table that can easily seat all the guests, and a modern, bespoke kitchen which incorporates original wood detailing. The main lighting in these areas have been handmade by a local artisan and are totally unique, whilst keeping the feel of the farmhouse. There are two en-suite double/twin bedrooms, with flat-screen TV’s and HDMI cables to attach computers or iPads. There are also contemporary and unique bedside lights designed and manufactured by one of Paris’s leading artisans. Off the entrance hall is a family bathroom with a bath and shower – just the thing to relax tired and aching muscles after a hard day on the slopes. A handmade wooden staircase leads up to the mezzanine floor, the third bedroom and TV/games snug. The twin bedroom sleeps two adults, however could accommodate three children with an additional pullout bed, with the snug, which overlooks the living area, accommodating a further two if required on a double sofa bed. There is a large flat screen TV with HDMI cables, bean bags for gaming, and a convertible sofa. More
