About Lodge Arpitan ...

This elegant chalet for 10 people is below a quiet residential road between the popular ski fields of La Balme and the charming village of La Clusaz, which has a great choice of bars, restaurants, shops and a weekly market. You can drive into the village in 10 minutes, or if you'd prefer, take the ski bus, which stops just 200m from your door. 

Built on the edge of the mountain, the garden drops away steeply in front of the chalet, leaving you with a fabulous uninterrupted view of the Aravis mountains, perhaps best enjoyed from the south-facing terrace. On a clear night, It's the perfect place to spend an evening watching for shooting stars, or perhaps a stunning Alpine sunset. 

The style of Lodge Arpitan is influenced by the taste of its English owners - a neutral palette of creams, white, beige and greys reflects the mountain setting and makes the most of the light, and some well-chosen accessories and lighting create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. It's a great place to relax at the end of a busy day exploring the mountains. 

The property ...

Lodge Arpitan sleeps 10 people in five comfortable en suite bedrooms, set over three floors. Built into the side of the mountain, you enter on the ground floor and there are two floors below that. 

The sheltered porch and front door lead into a hall with large cupboards for all your outdoor gear. There are two double bedrooms on this floor - one with an en suite bathroom and access to the balcony, and another with an en suite shower room. 

One floor down is the beautiful living area with picture windows onto the terrace and that stunning view! Three comfy sofas with plenty of cushions and throws are arranged around the fireplace and television, for convivial nights with friends and family, or there is a quieter sitting area where you can curl up with a book. The dining table has impressive views over the terrace, and the open plan kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you need to cook for a crowd. There's a separate laundry room with a washing machine, dryer, sink, and a separate toilet. 

The remaining three bedrooms are down again. All have en suite shower rooms and are arranged along the front of the chalet to benefit from the view. There are two double bedrooms with access to a balcony, and a cosy twin bedroom. There is a home cinema on this floor too. 

There is a garage for one vehicle on the ground floor, and a ski store with a heated boot rack, so you'll be ready to hit the slopes every morning.

About the area ...

There's superb skiing at La Balme, which is just 2.5km from Lodge Arpitan, with more choice at La Clusaz, where there is weekly floodlit skiing.

The ski bus stops just 200m from the chalet, so you'll be on the slopes in no time. A single Aravis ski pass links La Clusaz to Le Grand Bornand and La Croix Fry, giving you more than 200km of pistes to explore, as well as free access to the ski bus.

There's great terrain for cross-country skiers at the nearby Confins and Beauregard plateaus, and non-skiers will have no time to be bored, with an ice-skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.

If you're looking for the ultimate in relaxation, let your cares float away in the year-round heated outdoor pool at La Clusaz, while the snow falls gently around you.

In the summer, the mountains become a fabulous playground for walkers, hikers and cyclists. The terrace outside the main living area is a great place to soak up the sun or enjoy a barbecue.

Walking or biking in the mountains is a pleasure - make it easy on yourself by taking the ski lift to the top and come down at your own pace. You can pick up a map of hiking and biking trails at the tourist office in La Clusaz.

Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, mountain-biking or white-water rafting. Adventurous families will love via ferrata, with children as young as eight able to explore the mountains on iron walkways, secured to a harness.

The beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is just 30 minutes away by car, and is a great choice for a day out. The lake is said to be the cleanest in Europe and in the summer it's a lovely place for watersports, cycling, swimming or you could just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches. There are also several golf courses around the lake, and some exceptional restaurants.

From the Owner

"We have spent the last four years visiting Lodge Arpitan as often as we can.

The chalet is built high on the sunny side of the valley overlooking La Clusaz. We always look forward to the views across the valley to the towering mountains and the busy ski slopes we can watch even from the breakfast table.

There are so many reasons why we fell in love with Lodge Arpitan: being able to take long walks to local beautiful spots such as Lac Confins, the skiing of course and the abundance of nature we frequently come across. There have been several exciting sightings of deer feeding outside the kitchen window in the winter, and a family of buzzards circle below us in the summer.

We bring our friends and family together for meals in the chalet, made from local ingredients sold by the impressive array of specialist food stores in the village. We also enjoy the bustling local restaurants offering everything from haute cuisine to raclette.

Finally, it’s a real treat to toast the end of the day as the winter peaks of the Aravis mountains turn pink in the evening sun, and in the summer with the sound of cow bells drifting up from the pastures below.

We hope you will enjoy Lodge Arpitan too."
