Balmaz Lodge ...
You'll enjoy wonderful views of the popular La Balme ski area from this fabulous ski lodge for 15, just a few minutes drive from La Clusaz.
Watch the skiers hurtle down the Fernuy piste or in the evenings, you can see the SnowCats preparing the slopes for the next day. In the summer, the snowy slopes are replaced by lush green pastures.
But there are plenty of other reasons to visit Balmaz Lodge - take the indoor swimming pool where you can swim against the current and the sauna, for example. There's also a games room where younger guests can enjoy books, games and the television.
There's underground parking for five cars, and it's just a short drive or bus ride into La Clusaz, where you'll find a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops.
About the property ...
There's plenty of room for 15 guests at this stunning property, with accommodation set over four floors, three of which are connected by a lift.
You can drive straight in to the underground car park at Balmaz Lodge, which leads to the ground floor. Here you'll find the ski room with heated boot warmers. But the undoubted highlight of this floor is the superb 30m2 swimming pool, which has a children's paddling pool, a relaxation area and a deeper end with a counter current. Guests will also be able to access the sauna from here.
On the first floor there are four en suite bedrooms or suites. The first has a double room and an interconnected bunk room, and there are two double rooms, one of which is accessible for guests with limited mobility. The fourth room has a double bed and bunk beds. Three out of four of these rooms also have access to a terrace.
There are two more double bedrooms on the third floor. The impressive master bedroom has a balcony and a bathroom with a bath and separate shower, and there's a twin room with a shower, washbasin and separate toilet. The games room, between the second and third floor, has a sofa bed, handbasin and television as well as a great selection of books and games.
The spacious main living area is on the second floor. There are two seating areas, separated by the fireplace. In one, the sofas are arranged in front of a television, while the other overlooks the terrace and the superb view. There's a large dining table where all 15 guests can enjoy a meal together, and the stylish kitchen has an island bar with seating for four - it's a great place to grab a quick breakfast or to serve a children's tea.
About the area ...
With the La Balme and Fernuy ski lifts less than 400m from Balmaz Lodge, you'd struggle to find better access to this popular ski area. If you're looking to explore other areas the ski bus stops at the lifts, putting the whole of the Aravis ski resorts at your disposal - more than 220km of perfect pistes and 95 lifts in the stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod.
Cross-country skiers, walkers and snowshoe walkers will find great terrain at the Beauregard plateau and nearby Lac des Confins. In fact, the footpath for Confins goes right past your door, and it's a wonderful walk in both summer and winter.
If you're visiting in April, you're well placed to see the unique Défi Foly competition, when daredevil skiers end the season by seeing how far they can ski down the hill and across the rapidly thawing Lac des Confins!
If you fancy a break from the pistes, La Clusaz has an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools a spa centre, and a cinema. If you’re looking for a challenge, try sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides, all within a few miles of your holiday home.
There is no shortage of summer fun and adventure within a few minutes of Balmaz Lodge. There are plenty of gentle family walks in the Lac des Confins area, where you will also find a tennis club, golf course, driving range, fishing, a riding centre and several restaurants.
Take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking, or try white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding in the La Clusaz area.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Annecy are just 40 minutes drive away, making it a great place for a day out - you can swim and fish in the lake, windsurf or just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.

From the owner
As regulars to the village of La Clusaz where we have loved to stay for over fifteen years, the opportunity to build a chalet in Balme appealed to us instantly. Direct access to the slopes is a real bonus in what is the best ski area in La Clusaz.
The panoramic view that opened up to us when we visited the site made it obvious that we could build a magnificent chalet with a spectacular view over Beauregard, the village and above all the Balme and the Aiguille massif.
This chalet was built to make the most of the panoramic views with large windows on the entire south side. A very large terrace allows you to take full advantage of the natural light and offers great moments of relaxation in the sun or large family reunions while taking full advantage of the spectacular view.
It was designed to accommodate large families and groups of friends in a space with plenty of space. The ability to gather together in large numbers without getting in each other's way was one of our concerns, as we attach great importance to the living spaces that have been designed to suit all generations.
The large bedrooms offer a very comfortable and quiet private space.
The youngsters have also been the object of our attention with a well-stocked playroom with a large TV.
Disabled access is available thanks to a lift that facilitates movement on the different levels, and a bedroom for people with reduced mobility is available.
The house has been built by local craftsmen who have an eye for detail and quality workmanship.
The use of noble materials and old wood gives an authentic character to this chalet which seems to have always been there. It has a magnificent swimming pool and sauna area to unwind after a day of skiing or hiking.
Staying at Balmaz Lodge is a guarantee of a friendly and relaxed stay in a quiet, majestic setting and just two minutes from the Balme Massif slopes, which offers the best snow conditions in the resort and is open most of the season.
We hope you will enjoy our chalet just like you would enjoy your own holiday home.
