About Chalet Polanka ...

This bright contemporary chalet was built in 2006/7, and combines modern conveniences such as underfloor heating with traditional Savoyard character.

Perched above the charming village of St-Jean-de-Sixt, just a two-minute drive away, Chalet Polanka enjoys fabulous views down the valley towards La Clusaz, and is in the perfect location for making the most of the Aravis mountains.

If you’re tired of staying in impersonal hotels in the concrete jungles of big ski resorts, you’ll really appreciate the trouble the owners have taken to make this chalet a home from home, using a unique blend of antiques and contemporary furniture, enhanced with their own art and accessories.

The property ...

Sleeping up to 12 people (maximum 8 adults) in 5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms, Chalet Polanka is ideal for several families or a large group of friends.

On the ground floor there's an open plan living area, dining table and kitchen, as well as a double bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. 

On the next floor, the main open plan living area has a large dining table for communal meals and a cosy fireplace where you can catch up on the day’s news and plan the next. Underfloor heating means it’s always cosy when you come in from the cold, and in good weather, you can open the patio doors on to the large terrace, where you can watch the sun go down over the mountains. There's also a bedroom, bathroom and separate toilet on this floor.

The other bedrooms are upstairs - two doubles and a family room as well as a daybed on the landing. There are also two shower rooms and a bathroom.

The two well-equipped kitchens make it easy to cook a quick supper for the kids while making dinner for the rest of the party, or perhaps for two families staying togther. The two living rooms and two dining areas mean you need never feel crowded, and kids have a choice of outside spaces where they can let off steam.

About the area ...

Situated halfway between the ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, Chalet Polanka is in the perfect position to enjoy the best of the Lake Annecy Ski Resorts.

It’s just a five-minute drive to the ski lifts, and the ski bus stops in the village, just a couple of minutes away.These resorts are all covered by the Aravis ski pass, giving you more than 200km of pistes to explore, with 95 lifts. There’s great terrain for cross-country skiers too.

Non-skiers will find plenty to keep them occupied, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Thrill-seekers should head for the Bun-J-Ride in St-Jean-de-Sixt – a unique mixture of ski-jumping and bungee jumping that’s not for the faint-hearted!

Whatever the season, Chalet Polanka is the perfect base for enjoying life in the Aravis mountains. In the spring and summer, there's no shortage of walks from the door, from mountain trails to hiking on the Gliéres plateau, the scene of the Resistance’s campaign in World War II.

Adrenalin junkies are well catered for too, with paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via ferrata, mountain-biking and white-water rafting just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of St-Jean-de-Sixt.

Whatever you do, you will be glad to get back to Chalet Polanka at the end of the day, where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the terrace and perhaps a barbecue while you relax and soak up the evening sun.

What next? 

If you like the idea of a mountain holiday at Chalet Polanka, check our availability calendar to see if your dates are free. We can hold the property for 24 hour while you make your plans, but don't hang around. Chalet Polanka is a great favourite with our guests!

From the Owner

A family home furnished with love for a relaxing holiday, whatever the time of year

“I fell in love with the Alps after being a frequent tenant of an elderly French/English couple - the man was a brigadier general who was still skiing at the age of 94!

The La Clusaz area is beautiful, whatever the time of year. Of course it’s gorgeous in the snow, but it’s also wonderful in the spring, when the meadows fill with flowers and you can hear the cow bells. In summer, you can enjoy the fabulous weather, stunning sunsets and the star-filled skies, and in autumn you can hunt for mushrooms, and pick up wonderful local fruits in the village markets.

Chalet Polanka was built for us in 2006/2007 by specialist local tradesmen. It’s south-facing, and is surrounded by meadows above the village of St-Jean-de-Sixt. We used the best materials - local oak for the staircase, reclaimed oak for the main floors and old stone and wood for the fireplace. The rooms are all spacious with high ceilings, and there are plenty of places where adults and children can find their own space. One of my favourite areas is the ‘gin and tonic terrace’ next to the meadow - the perfect place to watch the sunset in the summer.

I hope you will enjoy and respect Chalet Polanka as the family home that we have created with our own treasures and hopefully, after a well-earned rest here, you will decide to visit us again soon.. Annie OLEJNIK

Guest Reviews

“A really good holiday in this superb chalet”

An ideal place for several families. The area is magnificent and the views from the chalet are superb.

Elisabeth P. - 17/12/2016

“Great place to be, STUNNING view”

We had a marvellous week at St Jean de Sixt. The countryside is magnificent and there are lots of things to do organised in La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. Chalet Polanka is just as it is described on the OVO Network website. It is a lovely place to stay, and every bedroom has its own bathroom and toilet. And the view is STUNNING! Martine, who welcomed us, is very kind. In short, we all, young and old, were enchanted by our holiday and are sorry that we could only stay a week.

Katia P. - 23/07/2016

“A magnificent chalet with a superb view. ”

The large living room is bathed in light, it's really lovely. The level of equipment is very good and the welcome was warm. In short, a superb holiday in a very welcoming place!

Guillaume P. - 16/01/2016

“A really lovely stay in a very comfortable chalet. ”

The thing we will remember most will be the evenings around the fire - absolutely lovely!

Anne D. - 19/12/2015

“Excellent facilities”

Beautiful view, and the size of this vast chalet was perfect for my big family. The facilities provided are excellent and furniture is well maintained and clean.
We enjoyed the many activities in town.

Ahmed A. - 01/08/2015

“We have spent a superb week with our family and friends... ”

We have spent a superb week with our family and friends, in this magnificent chalet, which is comfortable, pleasant and in a really calm and peaceful location. Nothing wrong, no problems. Thank you also for the excellent welcome from Christine the local manager. We would very much like to return in the future.
The Blandini, Cara, Siddu families and their children

Cara F. - 07/03/2015

“Excellent holiday.”

We loved the authenticity and the lovely feel of the place. The booking process fills you with confidence too.

Pierre N. - 28/02/2015

“We loved all of the antiques and gorgeous furniture in the house.”

It is a great chalet with beautiful views; we loved the skiing, the swimming and especially all of the antiques and gorgeous furniture in the house. Amazing size, perfect for our group. Also thank you so much for the fondue and raclette set, they were very useful and very fun for our families. It was a perfect setting for sledging, which the children LOVED!

Burns F. - 14/02/2015

“Perfect comfort”

We really appreciated our stay at Chalet Polanka. The level of comfort was perfect. There were 13 of us, 7 adults and 6 children, and we all enjoyed having our own rooms (most of them with bathrooms) and our quiet moments. In addition, the area around the chalet allowed us to enjoy the snow after skiing (sledging, walking). It was perfect. The chalet was modern and full of light. There is plenty of space for a large group. The children dream about coming back!

Agathe D. - 07/02/2015

“We loved all of it...”

...the space, comfort, views, and the whole "feel" of the chalet, with decent skiing, amazing views, and the mountain atmosphere.

Nicolas W. - 05/04/2014

Thank you for such a beautiful and cosy home with this incredible view. We hope to come back soon. Even the weather was outstanding!

Marc A. - 03/08/2013

“We want to come back again and again”

We are very happy that we chose Chalet Polanka for our vacation in the Alps. Everything in the house - a cozy atmosphere in the Savoyard style, great view over the mountains - contributes to this fantastic atmosphere. Nearby are the wonderful slopes of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, available to skiers of all abilities. At 30 km there is also the wonderful town of Annecy. We want to come back here again and again. Thanks to Annie for a wonderful holiday in the French Alps.

Galina K. - 23/02/2013

“Perfect stay”

The chalet was very big and clean. Thanks for everything. There is no doubt that we will come back soon!

Arnaud D. - 02/02/2013

“A beautiful chalet for Xmas”

A vast chalet in a quiet location. We really appreciated the big bedrooms with ensuite for everyone! You can see the property is a real holiday home for the owners.

Nicole P. - 22/12/2012

“Highly recommended...”

We stayed in chalet Polanka for 3 weeks in May at late notice. This chalet is of the highest quality with easy access to nearby towns and excellent views from anywhere in the house.

Thomas D. - 11/05/2012

“... peace and quiet while being in close proximity to La Clusaz”

All of our group had a very enjoyable stay in Chalet Polanka. The chalet has wonderful 180° views is comfortable and has plenty or space and modern amenities to welcome large groups. We would thoroughly recommend this chalet to anyone in search of some peace and quiet while being in close proximity to La Clusaz.

Douglas J. - 11/02/2012

“Chalet Polanka- Great for genuine relaxation”

Idyllic location: the chalet offers everything you could need. It is spacious and light with great views. Cosy in the winter in front of the log fire, and tranquil in the summer with it's position on the hillside away form the bustle of the tourists-great for genuine relaxation

David N. - 07/01/2012

“Chalet Polanka is a chalet that would satify...”

Chalet Polanka is a chalet that would satisfy the most discerning of holidaymakers.
It has a wonderful view over many miles into the local valleys which is quite magical at night-time as one observes the twinkling village lights in the distance and the stars above. The internal appointments are of the highest standard.
There is plenty of parking and a large open slope in front of the chalet where children of all ages can sledge or just roll about!
The chalet is suitable for all ages, and there is even a bedroom with an en-suite on the ground floor in the event of anyone having limitations on their use of stairs.
I have no hesitation in recommending the chalet to those wishing to experience a superlative in accommodation, winter or summer. I would be very surprised if anyone using the chalet does not want to come back again and again-we did!

George M. - 01/01/2011

“If you love the mountains as we do, it is the perfect place...”

Chalet Polanka has outstanding views of the valleys and mountains; it combines spacious comfort with a wealth of fine features and is a sheer delight.
We have been visiting the chalet each year since it was built and can't wait to go back. If you love the mountains as we do, it is the perfect place to escape the stresses of life.

Bob L. - 09/10/2010

“The views from the chalet are outstanding.”

Chalet Polanka is beautifully designed, very spacious, very attractively furnished and well-equipped. It is suitable for multi-family use with it's many bathrooms and 2 kitchens.
I holidayed with a large family group and two grandparents and everyone was very happy.
The views from the chalet are outstanding. It is in a beautiful area with excellent long walks and many places to visit.
