About Chalet des Enfants La Clusaz ...
You’d struggle to find a more perfect base for a mountain holiday than 4 star rated Chalet des Enfants, situated in a private drive just seven minutes walk from the centre of La Clusaz (and just a minute on skis!). It’s far enough from the village to enjoy the tranquility of the mountains, but close enough to take advantage of the bars, restaurants and other facilities.
The ski bus stops less than 100m away from the chalet, and it’s only a few steps further to the Nant piste, so you won’t waste any time getting on the slopes.
Recently upgraded, Chalet des Enfants is semi-detached, and the accommodation is set over four floors, with stair gates and equipment for families with very young children. It would be ideal for two families holidaying together, or a group of friends. The property is, however, not suitable for those with limited mobility.
The property ...
Sleeping six adults and four children in five bedrooms (all with a TV and English and French satelite channels), there's plenty of room to find your own space.
Two families will find this an ideal base - there are two separate living rooms, three double bedrooms, two twin rooms and three well-appointed bathrooms. In the evenings, the kids will be happy to watch films, listen to music or play computer games around the funky ethanol fireplace downstairs, while the adults relax around the open fire in the living area upstairs.
The large kitchen and dining room are also open plan, so cooking dinner can be a sociable affair! Furniture is modern and practical, with leather sofas, fur throws and natural wood, complemented by contemporary art and lighting.
There are two sunny balconies and two terraces, one of which has a jacuzzi with stunning views over the pistes - the perfect place to watch the sun go down on a fun-filled day in the Aravis!
About the area ...
If it’s skiing you’re after, Chalet des Enfants has got it in spades! The ski bus is less than 100m away, the Nant piste isn’t much further, and from there it’s just a minute’s ski to the ski school meeting point in Bossonet.
An Aravis ski pass will give you access to more than 200km of snow-sure pistes in La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod, and there are plenty of cross-country trails to discover, too.
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 village’s heated outdoor pool, while the snow falls gently around you.
In the summer, Chalet des Enfants' location on the edge of La Clusaz means you won't have to rely on your car to explore everything the mountains have to offer.
Hike into the Col des Aravis, or let the telecabine ferry you and your bike to the top, 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 always somewhere new to discover.
If you just want to relax, why not soak up the sun on the south-facing terrace or balcony, or soak in the jacuzzi as you admire the mountain views. Later, fire up the barbecue and plan the next glorious day in the Aravis mountains as the sun sets behind the mountains.
If Chalet des Enfants sounds like the perfect choice for your holiday in the French Alps, why not check your dates against our availability calendar. We can hold the property for you for 24 hours while you make your arrangements. But don't leave it any longer - a property in a great location like this will soon get booked up.

From the Owner
With 5 children of our own, we feel it is the ideal place to spend a family holiday together...
“We started our search for a chalet in the Alps shortly after becoming engaged. Having fallen in love with each other, we then fell totally in love with La Clusaz the first time we visited.
Our basic requirements were clear; we wanted to find a chalet that was less than an hours drive from Geneva, where we could holiday easily with children, and teach them to ski, whilst at the same time enjoying the French way of life.
With the help of property search guru, Annabelle Ormond, we found the perfect place during our very first weekend visit back in May 2004. We embarked on our search from Annecy. We were immediately captivated by the beauty and history of the place, by the Lake and the 'Venice of France'. What a discovery, we were almost convinced about staying before even viewing any chalets to buy!
Later that day, after a short drive around the lake and into the mountains, past the magnificent Chateaux at Menthon St Bernard, we were shown 'Chalet A', Route du Plattuy in La Clusaz which was to become our dream chalet. 'Chalet Des Enfants' was purchased off-plan.
At the time of our first visit it was only half finished, but we saw its potential straight away. Within walking distance of a typical French Alpine village, with its traditional church square, with horses pulling traps, the wonderful smells of the local cheeses and boulangeries, paragliders above our head, locals catching up over coffee in the many cafe terraces, it was blissful! No sign here of the industrial nature of some of the better known resorts,
La Clusaz has a quiet, authentic, captivating yet vibrant charm. We signed the papers and agreed to the purchase there and then, before we had even seen La Clusaz in the snow, and our first winter visit to the property did not disappoint. To our surprise we realised that the chalet was in fact just a stone's throw from the slopes!
The newly completed stunning south facing chalet, boasts three terraces from which to take in the fabulous scenery, with views across to Beauregard in one direction, La Balme in the other and opposite the chalet skiers descending the final section of the Nantes slope cutting through the forest. The views are spectacular in the summer and when blanketed in snow in the winter they are just magnificent! What a fantastic hidden bonus!
We had great fun choosing the final finish of the place; a traditional stone fireplace in the upper living area and a contemporary ethanol fireplace in the downstairs cinema room. A modern kitchen, bright and colourful childrens bedrooms and more restful calm adult bedrooms, with luxurious contemporary bathrooms. We furnished the chalet with pieces from both the UK and France to create a space that had both the home comforts we were used to (satellite tv, wifi, ipod docking station, PS3 etc) whilst still respecting the tradition of a real French chalet.
Watching the crane install the hot tub on the first floor terrace was highly amusing but so well worth it, we have since spent many a happy evening with a glass of champagne overlooking the slopes, soaking in the tub after a long days skiing.
We saw in our first New Year as a married couple at Chalet Les Enfants having taken a year complete it and get it ready for our friends and family to share and enjoy. We have since spent many weekends and holidays at Chalet Des Enfants, named because, with 5 children of our own, all of whom have learned to ski in La Clusaz, we feel it is the ideal place to spend a family holiday together.
Both from big families, we appreciate how important it is to be able to find somewhere you can really relax, when you have lots of children of different ages. We find there is enough room for everyone to find their own space if they choose to; the children can chill out downstairs in the cinema room whilst the adults catch up over a glass of wine in the salon before dinner!
Our extended family and many of our friends have spent time at the chalet too, and we are proud to have been able to provide somewhere where they have all been able to enjoy spending time with their families winter and summer alike. We love that you can watch people skiing and sledging just across the road on the slopes opposite the chalet.
We love that you can ski through the trees and make it back virtually to the front door if you pick up enough speed! We love that we can leave London on a Friday evening, fly to Geneva and have less than an hours drive to get to the chalet from the airport. We love the traditional charm of La Clusaz and the welcome we get from the locals we have met. We love that you can explore the region in the summer, taking in the mountain air and the stunning Lake in Annecy. We love that you can combine quality skiing and boarding with fantastic food in the many restaurants, and we love that we feel just as at home in our chalet as we do in our home in the UK.
Most of all, we love that we have been able to share our chalet with our family and friends and hope now that others that chose to stay here will fall in love with La Clusaz and Chalet Des Enfants just as we have. Nick, Jenny, Rose, William, Oliver, Sienna & Amelie Wootton

Trips E. - 04/08/2018
“A quiet chalet in a beautiful location”
We really loved the location of your chalet, the peace and quiet, the bed linen and the hot tub on the terrace. Another advantage of the chalet is the proximity to the sledging run. Just one small remark: would be useful to have a little more storage in the bedrooms and some more dishes in the kitchen.
Anne P. - 03/03/2018
We had a great time. Janelle, the manager, was welcoming and helpful. We really loved this chalet.
Iulia B. - 03/02/2018
“A nice house”
Nice house with all the things you need. Very easy to access the skiing area.
If you haven´t got a car, there is quite some way to walk to the Supermarket or the center in town.
And we liked the authentic town.
Flemming W. - 27/01/2018

Fantastic long week-ends in the company of our friends. This chalet is really well equipped and functional.

We loved your house and it was ideal for what we needed. It was so lovely having the extras like the log fire and the candles. We made full use of the boot warmer too! We will be back! Let's also mention the lovely town, friendly people and efficient snow clearing.
Amanda B. - 07/01/2017

The chalet is beautifully decorated and equipped. The village of La Clusaz has everything you need on holiday. In our overall too short time here we have had nothing but happiness.

Gillian R. - 02/04/2016

Somers F. - 24/02/2015
“Everything we needed to relax”
We had a brilliant week in La Clusaz, a great chalet with everything we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves on a skiing holiday. Location couldn't be beaten with a very short walk to the piste for access to lifts and a 10 minute walk into town for shopping and restaurants, great not to have to get in a car at all!
Cate R. - 14/02/2015
We will have great memories of your chalet and lovely times in front of the fire. Thank you.
Antoine T. - 31/01/2015
“Full range of activities!”
We enjoyed the space, the modern fittings and the bathrooms of the chalet. There are plenty of restaurants, bike trails and a range of bike hire shops nearby. The access to Annecy is very easy.
Eoin G. - 22/06/2014
“Thank you for your warm and kind welcome”
We absolutely loved our stay here. Of course the weather was fantastic, but your chalet made it extra special for us. It's such a great place to stay, and very functional too. The ski in-ski out situation is just perfect!
Valérie D. - 08/03/2014
“Great stay during the New Years holiday.”
The chalet really does look as on the pictures. Spacious and offers plenty of room for everyone to have their space if needed. Kitchen is well equipped, location is good (15min walk to the centre, 10min to first bakery). We had a pleasant stay!
Tanja B. - 28/12/2013
“We'll come back without any hesitation”
What a fantastic holiday we had in this amazing chalet, everything was perfect! It was our first ski holiday and we were not disappointed; the property is well located near the village and slopes. We didn't need the car at all! The view from the balcony is splendid. La Clusaz during Christmas time is magical: with the shows, the lights, the shops... We found there everything we needed and wished for. And of course a dip in the jacuzzi, head in the stars, is ideal after all the effort on the piste... We'll come back without any hesitation!
Isabelle C. - 21/12/2013
“Perfect venue for a screen-writing weekend!”
It's warm and cosy and has an excellent well-equipped kitchen. The fireplace and supply of wood were great. The kitchen/living room was a really comfortable area for the group. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice. Lots of fridge space and well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the nice walking in the snow, so early for the season, and the easy access to La Clusaz.
Quentin K. - 22/11/2013
“Creative weekend at Chalet Les Enfants”
Thanks again for taking care of our creative weekend at the Chalet des Enfants. it was excellent and the entire team of our writer's group really enjoyed it!
Quentin K. - 22/11/2013
“A truly stunning place. ”
La Clusaz is an undiscovered gem in the Alps. Spent 3 weeks there in February and can't wait to go back. The chalet had everything I needed for my stay. Well equipped, easy to use and I felt very safe, warm and cosy there.
Sally B. - 23/02/2013
“Can’t wait to go back next season!”
Great location for the resort and slopes, easy to ski down to the main lifts and a pleasant alpine run takes you back down to the front of the Chalet. Walking distance to La Clusaz itself which is rare find – a ski resort in the Alps which is not swamped by Brits!! Plenty of good restaurants to choose from serving local dishes – tartiflette is a must! And if you’re not going out, the Chalet is the perfect place to relax after a days skiing in the hot tub or in-front of the log fire.
James C. - 19/01/2013
“I would go back every year if I could.”
Gorgeous chalet with all mod cons - even a hot tub! The skiing was fab with something for everyone. Loved all the shops and restaurants in the town...and of course those on the slopes too!
Sue G. - 15/12/2012
“Well-furnished and well-equipped property”
I have already stayed in winter and in summer at Chalet des Enfants: it's a well-furnished and well-equipped property in a great location for sun or snow. I loved watching the colourful hang-gliders swooping and descending onto the slopes!
Pat S. - 10/09/2012
“I've been back 6 times...”
Summer in La Clusaz at Chalet Des Enfants is fantastic. Walking, cycling, just so relaxing. The chalet is in the perfect position to explore the area. A visit to the farmer across the road for local butter and cheese is a must and then having a lazy lunch on the terrace watching the parapentes land in front of the chalet a highlight
Simone C. - 07/07/2012
We spent a long weekend at the chalet. We'd been told La Clusaz was lovely but that is an understatement. The town is very pretty, the skiing is great and the chalet is stunning. It's got everything you need and is only a short walk to the snow! We are hoping to book to go back with our children next year.
Graham W. - 08/01/2012
The snow conditions were incredible, as usual. Been back to Chalet Des Enfants twice. L'Outa is a must for dinner.
Spencer L. - 05/03/2011
“Summer in the Alps!”
Spent a lazy week in the July sun. This place is an undiscovered gem. Less than 30 minutes to the lake at Annecy makes this the ideal place to base yourself. I never thought a 'winter chalet' could be such a great place to spend time in the summer but it was perfect
Ian C. - 16/07/2010
Why La Clusaz?
Less than an hour from Geneva, La Clusaz offers Alpine action all year round. A traditional farming village, it not only offers great skiing and superb summer activities, but also a real community feel, whenever you visit. Great restaurants, bars and nightlife combine with local markets, festivals and traditions to give you the best of all worlds.
