We love our chalet and apartment! We don't pretend that its great luxury, but we think its great value, clean, cosy, well equipped, private and above all a fabulous base to explore the lovely Beaufortain area of the French Alps, summer or winter.

The apartment is not suitable for pets.

The space
Finished in 2014, this is a lovely light, well insulated space with lots of room compared to many apartments in or around ski areas. We are looking forward to new people exploring this lovely area using our apartment as a base.

The apartment is on the first floor and accessed by an entrance area with plenty of cycle/ski storage. One in the apartment you are completely self contained and not overlooked any other adjoining properties. The space is light and airy with a large glass door leading out onto a spacious balcony overlooking the field and forest.

Three bedrooms : Bedroom 1 is a double, Bedroom 2 is a double. Bedroom 3 is 2 singles.

The bathroom comprises a walk-in shower, WC and sink. A washing machine and drying facilities are provided free of charge.

The kitchen is brand new with adequate space and has electric hob, large electric oven, dishwasher, microwave oven and fridge. The kitchen is equipped with all the usual small utensils.

The dining area has a solid oak table and 6 dining chairs.

Two 3-seater settees and a 40-inch LCD TV with DVD player and selection of DVD's offer cosy night-time relaxation (Note - TV purely for playback of DVD etc, no signal reception, HDMI input).

Guests can roam freely on the private land which comprises mature deciduous woodland with footpaths and a large grazed meadow. The adjacent chalet is also rented and we ask guests to respect each others privacy.

Access to 3 ski areas (Areches-Beaufort, Les Saisies, Les Contamines-Montjoie) offering well priced skiing to suit all abilities. Some of the best downhill mountain biking and road cycling in the Alps.

An unspoilt, traditional corner of the mountains with wild flower meadows, lakes and towering peaks. French charm a-plenty in the locality with local markets and bakeries a short drive away.

Access to over 7 acres of woodland and meadows - ideal for children to play.

Unfortunately we are not on site but only a phone call away. We have a local friend who helps with changeovers and any problems that may arise during your stay. The owners can be contacted at any time by phone should you have any queries.

Unspoilt by large infrastructure, the Beaufortain is a well kept secret. This is a lovely area to visit whatever the season.

Public transport is limited but there is a bus stop just 200m away which goes up to the closest ski area and Beaufort, the closest town where there are bakeries, bars and restaurants. Summer uplift for mountain biking leaves from the same stop. The Tour De France often passes the door so this is biking heaven for would-be kings of the mountains. There is a supermarket just 2km away (a nice walk or short drive). Albertville is 15km down-valley and offers shopping and eating convenience as well as the charming old town.

Electricity is included in the rental price. There is wifi broadband.

Guest access
Access to a balcony with seating and table. Access to 7 acres of mature woodland with walks extending beyond.
Please respect the privacy of any guests in the chalet adjacent, other than that, roam at will!

Villard-sur-Doron, Rhone-Alpes, France

We are in the fabulous Beaufortain - unspoilt, little known and stunningly beautiful.

Winter
Winter in the Beaufortain is magical! 3 ski areas within 25 minutes of the door (Areches-Beaufort is closest at 15 mins) offer a range of affordable skiing for every level, from beginner to seasoned ski-tourer. The area gets an enviable quantity of snow due to it's proximity to Mt Blanc - almost always much more than forecast! An unspoilt French Alps winter wilderness can be explored on skis, on snow-shoes or on foot. Chalet Les Vernets is the ideal base - cosy down in front of the wood burners, or cook up a feast in the well equipped kitchens.

Summer
Unspoilt by large ski infrastructure or intensive agriculture, the area boasts an amazing variety of wildlife. Meadows filled with flowers, glistening snow-fed lakes, towering rock walls and pretty villages are the backdrop to your walking, mountain-biking, paragliding or just relaxing holiday. The Beaufortain offers a pure Alpine experience.
