About Chalet Le Kitz ...

This fabulous contemporary 5 star chalet was built by the owners on land belonging to their family.

Situated just a few minutes from the main road between Thones and St-Jean-de Sixt, the chalet is well placed for exploring the ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, as well as the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy. Chalet Le Kitz is in a quiet location and makes the most of the fabulous views over Mont Lachat, Tournette and Le Lachat de Grand Bornand.

There’s a lovely sunny terrace behind the property, which is then open to fields and forest, making it a great place to walk or cycle from. Although the garden is open, there is little or no passing traffic, so children can explore their immediate surroundings safely.

The property ...

Chalet Le Kitz sleeps 10, with accommodation over three levels.

Built to fit in comfortably with the older properties around it, it combines elements of a traditional chalet with contemporary features designed to make life easier.

As you enter the chalet on the ground floor, you’ll find a large hallway with access to the garage and ski store, a laundry and a double bedroom with en suite shower room. Upstairs is the huge open plan living area, which has been cleverly divided into separate areas, so that everyone can find their own space.

There’s a cosy seating area with a huge corner sofa piled with cushions and a separate area for watching the television - there’s an elegant wood burner here too. Colours are muted with stone and wood combined in the walls and floor for a stylish mountain feel.

A wooden panel divides this area from the well-equipped kitchen with an island hob, 2 fridges and breakfast bar, and there’s a large dining table where everyone can eat together. From here, doors open on to the spacious terrace which has sun beds, dining furniture, a barbecue and a hot tub, where you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine under the stars. There’s another bedroom and bathroom on this floor.

The remaining three spacious bedrooms are on the top floor - a large double with en suite shower room and access to the balcony and two twin rooms (the beds can be pushed together to form doubles), both of which have their own bathrooms.

About the area ...

Winter sports fans who want to escape from the bustle of modern ski resorts will find Chalet Le Kitz the perfect refuge.

Situated between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, you can ski somewhere new every day. Your Aravis ski pass also covers the Manigod area, giving you 220km of pistes of varying levels to explore, as well as extensive off-piste action. Cross-country skiers will discover trails from St-Jean-de-Sixt, just a few minutes drive from the chalet.

Non-skiers are well catered for too, and can go ice skating or swimming in La Clusaz where the heated indoor and outdoor pools are open all year round, or try snowshoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.

At the end of the day, retire to Chalet Le Kitz for a meal before relaxing in the jacuzzi under the night sky. Who could ask for more?

Chalet Le Kitz is perfectly placed for a summer break, putting you a short drive from the Aravis mountain range in the summer.

At the nearby village of St-Jean-de-Sixt, just minutes from the chalet, you can try the Bun-J ride, a cross between ski jumping and bungee jumping! Other more traditional pastimes are available too - marked footpaths crisscross the mountains, or you can explore by mountain bike or on horseback.

There are indoor and outdoor swimming pool complexes in Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Thônes, or if you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there are climbing schools, via ferrata routes, tree-top adventure parks, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.

Less than an hour from Geneva airport, the property is between the ski resorts of the Aravis and the medieval lakeside town of Annecy, which offers a unique mix of shops, restaurants, galleries, markets and museums. Lake Annecy, said to be the cleanest lake in Europe, is a great place for water sports, swimming, cycling or just relaxing on the beach.

Back at Chalet Le Kitz, there is plenty of scope for children to explore, while you catch some sun on the stunning terrace, relax in the hot tub or fire up the barbecue for dinner.

What next? 

If you can picture yourself and your friends enjoying all that Chalet Le Kitz has to offer, check our calendar to find out when it is free. If you like, we can hold the property for you for 24 hours while you check with the rest of your party. But don't wait too long - chalets like this are a rare find!

From the Owner

From the window you can see the deer grazing in the field

“Coming from the Aravis, we love this area and would love to share it with you.

Chalet le Kitz was built on the site of an old farm. Damien, who is a carpenter by trade, conceived and designed the property himself with your comfort in mind, but still respecting the architecture of the old buildings.In the heart of the Aravis, the chalet is situated in the peaceful and authentic hamlet of Grands Champs. However, you’re just five minutes from the resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, just two minutes from a supermarket, bakery and sports shops, and 25 minutes from the lake at Annecy.

Surrounded by nature, you’ll be able to see from the window or the Jacuzzi, the deer grazing in the fields.The name of the chalet is a nod to my brother, skier Thomas Mermillod, who won a medal for France at Kitzbühel, the Austrian resort famous for its vertiginous descent.We wish you a pleasant holiday in our chalet."

Sophie and Damien

Guest Reviews

“Great rental near La Clusaz”

The situation, the organisation inside the chalet, the equipments... we loved this property! La Clusaz is very near too. If we really have to find something "negative", maybe the living room is a tad small for 10 people. But all in all a great place to spend your holiday.

Claudine C. - 22/09/2017

“Great comfort, great service”

We really want to say thank you to Sophie who offered a very warm and kind welcome. She did everything she could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The chalet is very comfortable with good quality beds. We really enjoyed the chalet and its facilities, especially as our week was rainy from start to finish. We'll be back!

Norya V. - 09/09/2017

“We had a wonderful holiday. ”

The chalet was perfect for us, plenty of space and well equipped. The owners were very helpful and always pleasant.

Angela B. - 02/09/2017

“Many things do to in the area”

We liked the location, the space of the chalet, the cleanliness and the facilities available within the accommodation.

Walks, swimming, bike rides in the area were great - we loved and enjoyed it.

It would have been great if there had been a a few extra pieces of cooking equipment such as a sieve.

Karen Y. - 12/08/2017

“If you want to rent a chalet, this is the one!”

A perfect property, carefully decorated, and the rooms are perfect for a group of people. The location is ideal for days out and exploring the area. We will be back, for sure, and we are already looking forward to it. A big thank you to the owners.

Alexandra G. - 15/04/2017

“A very lovely chalet”

We had an excellent week with the sun, the snow and the hot tub at the end of the day. A special mention for the warm welcome from the owner, both on arrival and when we left.

David V. - 08/04/2017

“A beautiful place, very kind owners”

A very spacious place, comfortable, quiet and with a beautiful view. We were able to watch the deer. Just 10 minutes drive from La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, we were able to enjoy a variety of entertainment. Just a couple of points: I would have liked to have been able to bring my dog, and snow chains are necessary in heavy snow to get to the main road (there's a tight bend).

Yann C. - 04/03/2017

“A super week!”

A magnificent chalet which is very well planned: comfortable, practical, tastefully decorated with a jacuzzi, table tennis ... well done! The welcome from the owners was lovely. We wanted for nothing and hope to come back soon! It was really great being so close to two different ski stations. We were worried about the lack of altitude but it is difficult to move the chalet! Anyway, we had no regrets. Many thanks to the owners for all their help.

Saskia S. - 28/01/2017

“A really lovely chalet to live in”

We had an excellent holiday in this chalet, which we had rented last year. It's a really lovely place to stay (although the wifi could be a little better).

Pierre S. - 21/01/2017

“Very clean and in top condition”

Our host Sophie was very friendly, extremely helpful. She took good care of us, gave us knowledge of the local area. The chalet was very clean and in top condition. Will definitely visit again. Thanks Sophie.

Aditya M. - 14/11/2016

“We look forward to coming back!”

We had a great weekend with the family at this splendid chalet. It is very comfortable, very tastefully decorated and very well equipped. It's ideally placed for exploring the area.

Stephane I. - 30/09/2016

“The holiday was perfect”

The chalet was magnificent and the welcome was very well done.

Laetitia B. - 16/09/2016

“Thank you for a wonderful time at Chalet Le Kitz.”

Knowing the area quite well, we again made the most of all the activities locally and the weather was a bonus. As a two family group, we have stayed in many private rental Chalets and Villas, and Chalet Le Kitz is without doubt the best. The Chalet has everything for one or two family groups, the quality of everything inside and out is excellent and the level of cleanliness is spotless. Thank you.

James B. - 27/08/2016

“We'll see you soon !”

We had a lovely wonderful week in your superb chalet which is elegantly decorated, spotlessly clean and well planned. We loved the jacuzzi with a view of the mountains after a day exploring this magnificent area. We are really tempted to book up your new chalet in 2018! We will probably see you soon ...

Ingrid P. - 23/07/2016

“Chalet is absolutely perfect”

La Clusaz is one of the nicest ski resort in Europe!

Lukas N. - 02/07/2016

“Perfectly equipped”

We had a great stay. We found in this perfectly equipped chalet all the comfort of our own home. Thank you for yoru warm welcome. I will recommend this property.

Maxime K. - 04/05/2016

“We enjoyed our 2nd stay at the lovely Chalet! ”

Thank you Sophie for the great place you have! It really matches the description provided on your website.

Luc G. - 02/04/2016

“A great place for pampering and relaxation...”

A great stay in this chalet which has everything you need - space, comfort, luxury (thanks to the jacuzzi), en suite bathrooms and toilets, sheets and towels provided as well as basic equipment (including raclette and fondue equipment). The layout is well designed and the decor is tasteful, and then there is the hot tub - all great features of Kitz. It's a great place for pampering and relaxation, while still being close to La Clusaz and the slopes. We will certainly come back Thank you for the welcome.

Isabelle L. - 26/03/2016

“Practical furnishings and good quality equpipment. ”

We enjoyed being close to the ski stations and Annecy.

Daniel L. - 12/03/2016

“Everything was perfect”

Chalet Le Kitz is a wonderful place (great design, decoration, equipment) where we instantly felt at home.

Christophe B. - 27/02/2016

“A really fabulous chalet”

It is as good as the photos and description on the website! Had no problem housing three families and the children were kept well occupied with the table tennis table and hot tub. Sophie the owner made us most welcome. La Clusaz and its area was fantastic. Great family skiing, not busy despite being half term, and friendly people. Not over priced like some resorts. Have tried the area in the skiing season and loved it, now want to see what it has to offer in the summer.

Huw D. - 13/02/2016

“Everything was done with passion!”

Four couples were all enchanted by their stay at this chalet. Comfort, quality equipment, beautiful decor and a lovely environment (important for the non-skiers) at the chalet. Everything had been done with passion and it showed. Lots of fresh snow made the landscape magical and the ski slopes were extra special with amazing views from the top. The jacuzzi in the snow was really lovely to come back to after a day on the pistes - relaxation and fun guaranteed. Thank you for your welcome and availability - until next time.

Isabelle M. - 16/01/2016

“The property lacked nothing”

A dream holiday in a magnificent chalet where the warmth of the welcome and the quality of the service were as high as the Alps!The property lacked nothing and everything was designed for the comfort of guests. Thank you for the detailed attention.

Joël G. - 29/08/2015


Excellent stay and the owners were really lovely, always ready to help. Location and views are splendid, the area is ideal to hike.

Denise P. - 22/08/2015

“Fantastic chalet”

A lovely welcome from Sophie. Our stay at this superb chalet was really good and the jacuzzi was perfect after cycling! Super.

Jean-Marc L. - 18/07/2015

“Perfectly equipped”

We had a great family holiday (5 adults and four children) at Le Kitz. We appreciated the calm and the faultless chalet, particularly the fact that every bedroom was spacious and had its own spacious and well planned bathroom. The chalet is decorated simply and very tastefully. We were able to take full advantage of the region: walking for the adults, and plenty of activities for the children nearby. We recommend it highly.

Lisiane S. - 04/07/2015

“A beautiful stay”

We spent a beautiful week in your chalet. Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome.
We really enjoyed all the equipment, as well as staying another night!

Marie W. - 26/06/2015

“Unforgettable moments”

We thought this property was very reasonable. It was just as described on the website. The setting is pleasant and the chalet is very comfortable. The layout of the rooms means everyone can find their own space. The design combines modernism with quality materials such as wood and slate, resulting in a cosy feel. The terrace and the jacuzzi make for some unforgettable moments outdoors. The owner's welcome and the trusting relationship are worth mentioning. We will definitely return to Villars sur Thones and recommend this rental property.

D P. - 11/06/2015

“An authentic Savoyard atmosphere”

An excellent welcome from the owners to this beautiful chalet in the middle of the meadows, quiet but close to all facilities. It's the perfect place to rest the senses and to rediscover the authentic character of the mountains. The rural surroundings, the quality and decor of the chalet, the ping-pong table, the jacuzzi, the bottle of wine that the owners left for us - we loved everything.

Yann P. - 27/05/2015

“It met all our expectations.”

We had an excellent holiday in this magnificent chalet, which is very comfortable and practical. The welcome was great and the management met all our expectations. Thank you.

Mihn D. - 23/05/2015

“A dream holiday come true...”

We had an unforgettable holiday at this chalet to celebrate the baptism of our daughter. Everyone forgot about their daily cares to make the most of the magic of this place. Very practical, the chalet is tastefully decorated and has plenty of room. There were nine of us for five days, and everyone had their own space. There are five bedrooms, each one more beautiful than the last, five bathrooms and five toilets. Everyone loved the pingpong table and the jacuzzi was extraordinary. In short, there aren't enough superlatives - the worst part was having to leave.

Sylvie O. - 30/04/2015

“How could you not spend a great holiday at Chalet Kitz?”

Style, design, comfort, location, equipment etc ... everything is brought together to make you feel good and leaves you wanting just want thing - to come back! The whole area offers so many possibilities.

Edouard P. - 21/03/2015

“We loved it for its space, decoration, comfort...”

... not even mentioning the pleasure of feeling totally at one with nature, enjoying the calm, the view - plus there are the passing chamois in the morning!

Jérôme M. - 28/02/2015

“A real holiday week...”

... in a magnificent chalet surrounded by nature, pistes and sledging in the fields for the delighted children. A jacuzzi with amazing views and deer visiting at breakfast!

Cyrille A. - 14/02/2015

“A perfect chalet”

Hello to the most beautiful chalet that we have ever seen!This was our second trip to La Clusaz, and if we ever decide to come to La Clusaz again, we won't be searching for another chalet. This is the perfect one. We were three families, six adults and three kids. The rooms were of perfect size and comfort. The decoration was elegant and furniture, kitchen supplies, everything was brand new and quality material. The views were extraordinary from the both sides of the chalet. The owners are great people, they are kind and helped us with everything we need. It has been a week since we came back, and we are still looking at the photos we took in the chalet and La Clusaz. We loved it, most important the KIDS loved it.... We will miss the nights we spent with our kids in the hot tub!!! There isn't even one thing that I can criticise about the chalet. Only advise that I can give to the visitors who will be coming during winter may be to go to La Clusaz with a 4x4 vehicle, so that they wouldn't have to deal with all that chain for the tires.

Tuba B. - 31/01/2015

“This place has character...”

We all agreed this was a great holiday, which renuited a group of friends in a superb and tranquil chalet. From the jacuzzi to the stove and the open kitchen, everything is well thought out and of a high quality. This place has character, no doubt that of the owners, with as much attention given on the telephone as to the construction of the chalet that they built themselves. A big well done and see you next year!

Clément F. - 24/01/2015


Cleanliness, a quality finish, well equipped - perfect. Not to mention the proximity to the shops and La Clusaz.

Guillaume P. - 17/01/2015

“A chalet with every comfort. ”

Super holiday. We appreciated the peace and quiet and the proximity to Annecy and La Clusaz.

Ségolène S. - 12/12/2014

“A fabulous chalet in an exceptional setting.”

I highly recommend it - the beautiful countryside, the peace and quiet, the nearby shops and restaurants, everything impressed us!

Anaïs B. - 08/11/2014

“A real little piece of paradise. ”

Comfort, great decor, design, quality materials and a well-equipped kitchen, the magnificent terrace and the jacuzzi- everything is fantastic here! One big advantage is that you're not overlooked - it's peaceful, with a magnificent view and close to pretty villages and ski stations.

Adélaïde M. - 31/10/2014

“Stylish chalet and very kind owners.”

We had a wonderful holiday at this gorgeous chalet, with every comfort. It's a beautiful property, stylishly decorated and in the heart of a magnificent natural environment. We all appreciated the outdoor jacuzzi as well as the large sunny terrace. The owners are very kind and welcoming. They were always on hand when we needed them and did their best to meet all our last-minute requests. The whole family will be back next year to repeat this relaxing holiday in this marvellous place. We strongly recommend this fabulous chalet.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was perfect. The chalet is luxury and the facilities are briliant especially the large hot tub! The setting is very picturesque and quiet but still near amenities. Sophie & Damien were a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend everyone to stay at the chalet (apart from when we want to go!)
