About Authentic Lodge Spa ...
You’ll know you’re somewhere special the minute you step through the doors of the Authentic Lodge Spa - stylish interiors which wouldn’t look out of place in a glossy magazine, glorious views, a stunning spa area and skiing from the door set it head and shoulders above any other luxury ski chalet in La Clusaz.
The owner has made sure that nothing will stop you enjoying your best ever holiday - a concierge service will take care of all your concerns, catering can be arranged, and a housekeeper will visit throughout your stay.
Book now to make sure you don’t miss out on this holiday of a lifetime!
The property ...
This luxury ski chalet sleeps 16 adults and three children in 8 stylish bedrooms, so several families or a group of friends can holiday together in comfort.
Each of the bedrooms has its own elegant bathroom, as well as TV and an iPod dock. Most of them also have their own terrace or balcony - a great place for that early morning cuppa! There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor, along with a kitchen and living room, and five doubles on the first floor, as well as a twin room and a family room with a double and single bed.
The main living area is on the top floor, to make the most of the stunning views. The stylish well-equipped kitchen makes rustling up the evening meal a pleasure, but if you’d rather just relax, we can arrange for a chef to do all the work for you. While he’s working his magic, you can kick back in the spa, with jacuzzi, steam room or sauna, or let the in-house masseuse ease away any aches and pains from the day’s exertions.
After dinner, there’s room for everyone to get together on the sofas in the comfortable living area, complete with well-stocked bar, or on one of the the three sunny terraces, to discuss another great day in La Clusaz, and plan an even better one tomorrow.
About the area ...
This luxury ski chalet could not be better placed for a perfect winter holiday. Ski from the door, or if you want to go a little further afield, the ski bus stops just 180m away.
Slopes around La Clusaz are floodlit for night skiing - don’t miss the weekly torch-lit descent! There’s great terrain for cross-country skiers too. If the 220km of pistes offered by Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz aren’t enough for you, the chalet has its own helipad, so you can arrange heliskiing to areas such as Courmayeur and Valgrisenche.
With so much to see and do, at the end of the day you’ll have lots to talk about as you soak in the hot tub on the terrace, but if you fancy a night out, the excellent restaurants and bars of La Clusaz are just a short drive away.
In the summer The Authentic’s idyllic position, set in four acres of private land above the village of La Clusaz, means you can make your holiday as relaxing or as energetic as you like.
Hike into the Col des Aravis, or let the telecabine ferry you and your bike into the mountains, so you can come back down at your own pace. Other activities available in the area include horse-riding, climbing, via ferrata and paragliding.
The mountains around La Clusaz are criss-crossed with tracks and paths, so there is somewhere new to discover every day.
Just 30 minutes away by car is the medieval city of Annecy, set beside the cleanest lake in Europe. Here you can go kitesurfing, windsurfing, waterskiing or fishing, or just hire a pedalo and explore the peaceful lakeside beaches. The city also boasts several Michelin-starred restaurants and unique shops.
If you just want to relax, why not lie back in a sun lounger on any of the three sunny terraces, or admire the view from the hot tub. Later you can catch up with friends and family over an an al fresco meal or perhaps a game of petanque, as the sun sets behind the mountains.

From the Owner
This is a chalet for fun, tranquillity, laughter, activities, warmth, families, friends and fond memories.
Victoria and I have spent many happy holidays visiting the French Alps over the last 50 years, initially with our respective parents and more recently with our own family.
We simply love being in the mountains and absorbing the warmth of the Savoyard hospitality, whether it is cold and wet, snowy or sunny, winter or summer!
Finding Chalet Authentic Lodge in 2016 fulfilled a dream of having our own haven in the mountains. We love the heritage of the chalet (it was originally built in 1842) and the respectful and tasteful way the previous owners, the grandson of the original farmer, undertook the restoration in 2010.
This is a chalet for fun, tranquillity, laughter, activities, warmth, families, friends and fond memories. Our dogs love exploring the footpaths around the Aravis valley.
We hope you enjoy your time staying here.
Best wishes from
Victoria, Tim, Natalia and Ben
and the dogs….
“The chalet is really lovely and is just as it looks in the photographs. ”
The delegates at our seminar loved the comfort, the position, the view, the jacuzzi and the petanque pitch.

“A dream chalet”
A dream setting and a magnificent chalet. We would have loved it if the outdoor terrace had been ready.
Habiba L. - 18/05/2018
“Really lovely times”
A magnificent chalet, very sociable for holidays with family or friends. A very friendly and attentive team. We had a really good time, despite the lack of snow.
Fabienne B. - 16/12/2016
“An exceptional chalet”
We really enjoyed our second stay at Authentic Lodge. We loved the private location, the amount of space, the fact that every bedroom had a full bathroom, the lovely walks and the proximity to La Clusaz. One comment - sails rather than umbrellas might be better to protect all the guests from the sun in the outside dining area.
Pierre G. - 13/08/2016
“Well equipped and beautifully presented”
Great space for family and friends. Close to all the skiing, in a very pretty & authentic French town.
Bernadette W. - 13/02/2016
Beautiful wooden rustic chalet with all modern amenities. Extra catering was fantastic! Ski-in ski-out is a plus, as well as the hot tub for 12+ people, the private bathroom for each bedroom, the heated floor, heated boot room, large sitting areas to accommodate all guests at once, the great views, steam room, open fireplace and...Melanie the manager(!). As for the surroundings, there is a good selection of pistes, a cosy village feel - not crowded. Plus it's easy to get to from Geneva.

“The chalet and its surroundings are magical! ”
Our stay outside the main season was just enchanting. The chalet is faultess in its construction, decor and management, not to mention the range of activities available nearby.
Thomas T. - 27/11/2015
We spent a week-end here in November with my family (16 adults and 3 children. The service from the staff of the company was impeccable, with assistance on request at any time. The chalet itself is in excellent condition and fully equipped for a great stay.
Aleksandrs L. - 06/11/2015
“It was our fourth stay here!”
After our fourth holiday in this magnificent area, we never tire of it. We can't wait to bring the family back again next year. Thanks you to the whole team for your efficiency and superb welcome.

“To suit ages 21 to 70!”
We searched high and low for the right chalet to celebrate our granddaughters 21st birthday with family and friends. We had lots of boxes to tick! And this one has it all, it's great for parties. All en suite rooms. Big communal area for party evenings. Outdoor hot tub. Enough for everyone to enjoy who might not be skiing. To suit ages 21 to 70! Skiing to suit all abilities from expert to beginner.
Chalet Authentic Spa delivered and more on all counts! We had a truly marvellous time and are already planning a return visit. So many happy memories of our special celebration and buckets of snow. The chalet is truly gorgeous, if anything, even better than the website. Lazy breakfasts, soaking under the stars in the hot tub, meals round that big table and fantastic party nights. The chalet is excellently equipped, nothing has been forgotten, but more than that the customer service from Delphine, Melanie, Antoine and the team was the icing on the cake!
Thank you also for smooth booking process and regular informative information on deposit, plus prompts to pay balance as well as all we needed regarding arrival and departure. Everything went smoothly inclusing advance information about road closures due to snow !

“We recommend it”
This was our family's fourth visit to this marvellous chalet. As usual, everything was perfect thanks to Melanie and Julien: a warm personal welcome, space, cleanliness and friendly hospitality. A faultless service with all our needs catered for. To be recommended.

“There is only one thing we want - to come back!”
We had an exceptional holiday at Authentic Lodge. The chalet was remarkably well equipped and fantastically comfortable, from the kitchen equipment to the bedrooms, the spa etc It all added up to an unforgettable family holiday. The hosting was warm, friendly and very attentive and we appreciated the chalet's location a little off the beaten track. Despite the lack of snow our stay was very cosy, punctuated with walks in the area, and we appreciated the facilities, the spa and the jacuzzi. Everything possible was done to make our holiday a fantastic one!
Sandra G. - 20/12/2014
What a magnificent place to celebrate a 40th birthday surrounded by family and friends. We spent a fabulous weekend and the visiting chef Pierre and his team were the best (fine dining, a very professional and discreet team). We'll be back ... thank you!
Carine M. - 07/11/2014
“An unforgettable place, whatever the weather!”
After a wedding in 2012, birthdays in 2013 and a quieter year this year, we always love being in this magical place. We really loved the outdoor Jacuzzi, during the day and in the evening, as well as the variety of walks in the area. Thanks to the staff – we’ll see you next year!
Sabine B. - 01/07/2014
“Just so good!”
Exceptional comfort, chalet perfectly appointed... Nothing was missing to our perfect stay.
Coralie G. - 01/03/2014
“Fabulous time in a perfect location!”
We all wanted to tell you that we had a fabulous time. My father thought it was the perfect location for his 70th birthday and it was a great place for all ages. Everyone loved Authentic Lodge (especially the view from the hot tub) and we were made very welcome by you and your staff. Julian and Delphine were fantastic and provided us with exceptional dinners which we all appreciated after a good days skiing. We hope to come back some day soon and wish you a busy and successful 2013!
Paul S. - 30/03/2013
We had great moments at the Chalet! Good food, nice scenery and friendly people.
Paul V. - 16/02/2013
“High class service!”
The chalet is amazing and there is nothing more I could say about it! But I would like to thank Mélanie the chalet's manager, for her kindness, her professionalism and her efficiency! A real high class service! Don't change anything!
Thierry B. - 07/01/2013
“Thank you for everything”
This is the second time families Boukharouba and Zandotti choose the Authentic Lodge to spend some time together. The quality of service is still outstanding, we really appreciated Melanie's kindness, and the meals prepared by Chef Julien were out of this world! We'll come back for sure next winter. Thanks!
Sandrine Z. - 29/12/2012
