About Chalet Caramel ...
Although traditional in style, Chalet Caramel comes with every modern convenience to make sure your holiday is a memorable one, including a home cinema room which can be converted into a party room, complete with sound and light system.
Chalet Caramel is linked to Chalet Nougat only by the garages and shared indoor swimming pool and there is a private jacuzzi on a terrace at the other end of Chalet Caramel. Of course, large groups of up to 28 can book the two properties together and enjoy exclusive use of all the facilities.
The charming village of Manigod is a walk away, and offers a popular bakery as well as a restaurant with takeaway service. And for even greater holiday, you even have the possibility of a half or full board stay at Chalet Caramel.
The ski bus (free with the Carte d'Hotes and the Aravis ski pass) stops near the chalet, and links the ski station of Croix Fry with pistes at La Clusaz.
The property ...
Up to 14 people can be accommodated easily at Chalet Caramel, in six spacious en suite bedrooms.
Enter on the ground floor and you'll see straight ahead a spacious central hall with a sprial staircase. There are bedrooms on either side of the entrance - one a double with en suite shower and the other a double with a single bed and an en suite bathroom.
Behind the staircase is the ski room and home cinema. The main living area is up a floor, where you'll find a large well-equipped kitchen with a central breakfast island, a dining table big enough for 14 people to eat together and a cosy sitting area around an open fire and television.There's a toilet here too, and entrance to the swimming pool, which is shared with Chalet Nougat.
At the front of the chalet there's a furnished south-facing balcony which widens to a sun terrace (shared) by the swimming pool, and there's another more private balcony off the dining area, where you'll find a large jacuzzi, from which you can enjoy the stunning sunsets.
On the top floor you'll find four more bedrooms - a double with an en suite bathroom, a double with an extra single bed and shower room and two doubles with shower rooms. There's also a seating area on the spacious landing with access to a small balcony.
About the area ...
Chalet Caramel is just a few minutes' drive from the Croix Fry ski station, so you'll be able to make the most of every minute on the slopes. Parking is free, but if you don't want to take the car, the ski bus stops just 100m from your door.
From Croix Fry, your Aravis ski pass covers 220km of slopes and 95 lifts, from La Clusaz to Le Grand Bornand. Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails on the nearby Beauregard plateau, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with an ice skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
Just as in winter, the summer fun centres around Chalet Caramel's stunning Alpine location.
Explore the mountains on foot, either from the door or take the ski lift to higher altitudes and come back down at your own pace. You can take your bike too - pick up a route of graded mountain bike trails at the tourist office in La Clusaz. Gentler walking and glorious views can be found on the Beauregard plateau - take a picnic and plenty of water!
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via-ferrata or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod. Adventure parks at Le Grand Bornand and Thônes provide tree-top fun for all ages.
The towns also host weekly markets, where you can pick up fresh local produce. A day out to the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is a must. Explore the shops and museums in the morning, lunch at a lakeside restaurant, and you've got the rest of the day to swim in the crystal-clear waters, hire a boat or try some of the water sports on offer.
If you would rather stay closer to home you will really appreciate the jacuzzi and swimming pool at Chalet Caramel.
If you are already picturing yourself lounging by the pool at Chalet Caramel, exploring the mountains and shopping in local markets, why not check your dates against our availability calendar? We can hold them for 24 hours if you need a bit of time to finalise your plans. But don't forget to come back - Chalet Caramel and Nougat are always very popular with guests of OVO Network.

From the Owner
We imagined big living rooms, comfortable bedrooms and play areas
"In 1965 our parents welcomed their first guests to Le Grand Bornand, in a chalet built by our father. Les Congeres was named after the powdery snowdrifts which often cut off the farms in the winter. Since then, my brother Patrice and I have taken up in the footsteps of our parents, developing the concept to offer luxury accommodation.
My husband Anthony joined us for the construction of the chalets Meringue and Macaron in Le Grand Bornand. Anthony and I live in Manigod and love this quiet sunny valley. We wanted to develop our business in the village that we loved so much. We imagined big living rooms, comfortable bedrooms and play areas. We wanted to offer our guests luxury facilities in spacious properties where they could enjoy the company of friends and family in a magical place.
We are sure that you will enjoy spending time with friends in these spacious chalets, with their sunny aspects and superb views of the mountains. The nearby ski stations of Manigod and La Clusaz, wonderful hiking trails and magnificent Lake Annecy promise wonderful relaxing days.
Muriel and Anthony
An exceptional holiday in a dream setting for family and friends. And the owners were the best. All of that in a great atmosphere. The chalets had everything we needed and nobody will forget the marvellous weekend we had!

“A perfect holiday”
This was our second stay in the magnificent Chalet Caramel and it was a real pleasure again. Thanks to Anthony for the welcome and for telling us all about what there is to do in the area. The chalet has everything you need (swimming pool, hot tub, relaxation room, table football, table tennis, en suite bathrooms with every bedroom etc). We would love to come back to one of your chalets. Everything was perfect. We loved how much there is to do in the area - walks, via ferrata, skiing ... See you soon!

“We had a fantastic stay!”
This magnificent chalet is perfectly equipped, and we received a very warm welcome from the owner. We will be back!
Anne-Sophie G. - 14/04/2018
This was the best week ever with friends and family. We rented both chalets Nougat and Caramel and it was fantastic. The service was excellent. We're almost certain to be back next year. Thank you to Anthony the owner for his kindness, and warm and professional welcome.
Pascal C. - 24/03/2018
“We would love to come back! ”
We had an excellent week at Chalet Caramel in Manigod. The chalet is superb and has been well thought-out with six bedrooms and as many bathrooms, the shared swimming pool, the living room and the mini disco (cinema room). My only concern before the holiday was that the chalet was semi-detached. However there were no problems with our neighbours and there was no noise problem between the two chalets.
Kévin C. - 03/02/2018
“Our second perfect holiday!”
We came back for our second holiday and it was all still perfect! We rented Chalets Caramel and Nougat together for twice the pleasure!Thanks to Anthony , who was so helpful throughout our stay. We will see you next year, because twice is never enough!
Alexis L. - 27/01/2018
“A wonderful time”
We would all like to thank you for this unforgettable week in Chalets Nougat and Caramel. Everything came together for a really great time and you took care of every little detail on our behalf, and were always smiling - thank you so much for your kindness. We won't hesitate to recommend your chalet to our friends and hope to come back next year to make more memories. We wish you a good season.

“A chalet with great facilities, quality materials and a lovely view”
We had a lovely stay in this very comfortable chalet. The large living room is very well designed, and was never too crowded, even with 15 people! The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and mean you can find your own space if you need to. The swimming pool and the spa are well maintained and very pleasant.
Paul C. - 06/01/2018
“An amazing chalet”
Christmas 2017 was a real pleasure in this amazing chalet !
We loved everything! The location, the quality of the building, the furniture, the kitchen and the bathrooms, the comfort and the luxurious rooms, the heated pool, the hot tub, the games.
Everything was very well scheduled and designed.
We also enjoyed the beauty of the location and the mountain views, the vivid place of Manigod, to be close to La Clusaz and the easy road to the airport of Geneva.
Françoise S. - 23/12/2017
Many thanks to the owners Muriel and Anthony! Thanks to you and to these wonderful chalets we were able to realise our dream wedding. Everything was perfect, what else could we say? All of us are still starry-eyed and we have some fabulous memories of this place. Nougat and Caramel are just some magical chalets. Everything is there for you to spend an incredible time. The kids were over the moon ! Anything is left to chance, not to mention the kindness of the owners : they are great people! We'll definitely be back very soon !
Joy Astrid P. - 30/11/2017
“Another great stay”
This was our second time at wonderful Chalet Caramel with our family. Everything is well thought to make you feel just right. The pool and the hot tub are a real pleasure. We spent great family moments, it's an ideal place to get together. We spent our time in our bathrobes and very relaxed : pure bliss. Thank you Muriel and Anthony for your kind welcome. We'll recommend this place to everyone.
Frederique D. - 03/11/2017
“A great week !”
We experienced a first stay at Chalet Meringue, that encouraged us to come back.
This time we stayed at Chalet Caramel with its indoor pool, its movie theater, its table football....
A great week between friends !
Everything was perfect, and matched with the advert on the website !
We loved everything in the chalet : the location, the layout of the chalet, the views, the pool, the jacuzzi, the cleanliness and the services. Not to mention the patience and the availability of the managers !
We enjoyed being so close to Annecy, the local shops and great trails for hicking.
Karen J. - 21/10/2017
“We'll come back”
We spent an amazing weekend.
The Chalet is wonderful, and despite the great weather which allowed us to visit the area, we enjoyed the pool and the Jacuzzi as much as possible.
Many thanks for all these great services.
We did appreciate the luxury, comfort and views of the chalet.
And we really liked the small village of Manigod, Thônes and La Clusaz.
Maya T. - 13/10/2017
We spent an unforgettable week at Chalets Nougat and Caramel. These two neighbouring properties are magnificent and very well designed. The spaces have been well thought out and work well for the number of people in the chalet. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The view from the terrace and the jacuzzi are magnificent! The setting is perfect, with La Clusaz about 15 minutes away from the chalet. And to crown it all, the owners are very kind and took great pains to make sure we were happy. Thanks again to them - we will be back!
Celine B. - 04/03/2017
A really beautiful chalet with everything we needed and well planned for an excellent ski holiday. A super welcome from Anthony, with a gift of Reblochon cheese and a bottle of wine. The small ski station at Manigod is perfect.
Alexis L. - 28/01/2017
“A piece of heaven”
We stayed at week at Chalet Caramel to celebrate the New Year. As for the quality of the welcome, the comfort, the equipment and the beauty of the surroundings, we felt compelled to leave you this note because we were delighted to have been able to enjoy the delights of this marvellous property. Everything had been thought of. In addition, Anthony, the manager, takes great pains to make sure guests are happy. We found our happy place here in this chalet ... a little piece of paradise! A thousand thanks.
Nathalie D. - 31/12/2016
We've rented both twin rentals Chalet Nougat & Chalet Caramel for a week-end (25 people). The place is superb, the view is breathtaking and the equipment of both place was beyond expectations. The service provided was of great standard. We strongly recommend these chalets!

“It lived up to all our hopes and expectations”
We enjoyed Chalet Caramel for a family weekend in November. The chalet is perfect for families and guests ranging in age. Everyone found something they loved: ping-pong, table football, the swimming pool, jacuzzi, TV, dance floor, walking in the mountains, sledging, relaxation etc... Everything was perfect, and it lived up to all our hopes and expectations. The owner;s welcome and helpfulness was just unbelievable. We loved the magnificent view, the practicality of the chalet where every little thing had been thought of (laundry, cloakroom, bathrooms). The decor is modern and in the style of the mountains. The high-end materials made for a real feeling of well-being. The jacuzzi is always warm, the pool is heated to 30 degrees, bathrobes are provided. The kitchen is spacious and practical, and the dishes are very pretty. There is a parking space in the huge garage where you can unload your car. In short, everything is perfect!

“Magical - a really luxurious chalet”
A family holiday relaxing in a dream chalet. Everything has been thought of and provided. A really luxurious chalet with a beautiful swimming pool (hang on if you are swimming against the current!) and a spacious jacuzzi. Bathrobes for walking to the pool, it's the attention to detail that makes all the difference. We had a great time - everyone had their own space but we could also get together in the large living room with its open plan kitchen. We received a punctual and warm welcome from Muriel and Anthony, who were always available if we needed anything, and there is a great view over the Manigod valley and La Tournette. We didn't leave the chalet - it was so good that no one wanted to leave! An unforgettable time which brought us together as a family.
Frédérique D. - 04/11/2016
“Dance floor and 30° swimming pool”
This chalet is really marvellous. It is spacious and practical. The kitchen is enormous! The dance floor which is great for parties, the swimming pool heated to 30°c in November .. not to mention the view of the mountains from the chalet!
Christophe J. - 28/10/2016
“Everything was clean and confortable”
A very nice place to have a good time. It was much appreciated to have a bathroom for each bedroom. The view from the patio is just fantastic. A lot of space to park cars around the chalet.
Frédéric P. - 09/09/2016
We spend a week at Chalet Caramel at the beginning of August - it was absolutely perfect. The chalet is so well decorated and very comfortable, the view is sublime, the owners take the time to solve even the smallest problem and the area is just as wonderful. We highly recommend it. Thanks to the Bernards for the welcome and the service. This was the second time we have stayed at one of their chalets and certainly won't be the last.
Sphie C. - 30/07/2016
Set in one of the most beautiful Alpine valleys, the village of Manigod is a mountain secret that is a delight to discover. With its own ski area linking into the famed La Clusaz ski resort, Manigod offers fabulous skiing in winter and world class cycling in the summer.
Beautiful chalets are dotted around the mountains, restaurants range from local auberges to Michelin starred, and you can buy locally made pottery and cheeses fresh from the farm.
