About the property ...
The spacious accommodation at Chalet Arpitania is set over three floors. The entrance at the back of the house will take you via the ski and bike room into a hall with plenty of storage space.
This opens up into the vast open plan living area - the luxury kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd, including a large fridge freezer and two ovens, and a freestanding island unit with a large hob and breakfast bar. There is room for everyone to eat together at the bespoke dining table, and the corner fireplace will add to the convivial atmosphere. There are sliding doors on to a wraparound terrace where you'll find another large dining table where you can eat out on sunny days.
The stylish seating area is at the front of the house - four comfortable sofas are arranged around another fireplace and television, and full-height windows frame the breathtaking view and fill the room with light. They also open on to a balcony which is the perfect place for drinks before dinner!
Take the stairs to the top floor, where you'll find two spacious bedroom suites, both of which have dressing areas, en suite bathrooms and separate WCs. Each has a large double bed opposite a full-height window which opens on to a balcony - what a glorious view to wake up to! All of the bedrooms have Nespresso coffee machines, so you won't even need to leave your room to get your first coffee of the day.
There are three more bedrooms on the ground floor, all of which have en suite shower rooms and open on to a terrace. One is a double room and the others both sleep four people - each has a double bed and a set of bunk beds. There's also a useful laundry room on this floor, and a separate WC.
The ground floor is also home to the impressive spa area - there's a large indoor pool with a bar and seating area which opens on to a terrace, as well as a steam room and a sauna. It's the perfect space to spend a relaxing day with friends - there's even a pétanque court outside if you fancy a game!
Chalet Arpitania has a garage for two cars as well as two parking spaces and there's a charging point for electric cars.
About the area ...
Skiers and boarders will be spoilt for choice when they stay at Chalet Arpitania. The ski bus stop just 50m from the door, giving you access to the 220km of slopes in the La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Le Croix Fry area. If you’d rather take the car, the Bossonnet parking and lift in La Clusaz is just 1.9km away.
There’s plenty to do for non-skiers too, with an ice-skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
In the summer, walks start right from your door - hike into Les Confins, where you will also find a nine-hole golf course and fishing lake, or let the telecabine ferry you and your bike into the mountains, so you can come back down at your own pace. The mountains around La Clusaz are criss-crossed with tracks and paths, so there is always somewhere new to discover. Other activities available in the area include horse-riding, climbing, via ferrata and paragliding.
If you just want to relax, why not soak up the sun on the terraces or balconies as you admire the mountain views, or take a dip in the pool at Chalet Arpitania? Later, fire up the barbecue and plan the next glorious day in the Aravis mountains as the sun sets over the mountains.
There is a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants in La Clusaz, and you can pick up fresh produce, at the weekly market. There are larger supermarkets a little further afield in Thônes. The ski bus links La Clusaz to Le Grand Bornand and Manigod, making it easy to get around.
The beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is just a 30-minute drive away, and is a great destination for a day out. With a great calendar of festivals and markets, there is always something going on. Lake Annecy is said to be the cleanest lake in Europe and in the summer it’s a lovely place for water sports, cycling and swimming. Why not hire a boat to explore the beaches, perhaps stopping at lakeside restaurant for lunch? Golfers will be keen to try one of the area’s superb courses or you could visit the chateau at Menthon St Bernard.
If you can already see yourself sipping a drink by the wonderful pool or enjoying a barbecue on the terrace at Chalet Arpitania, check your holiday dates against our availability calendar - we can hold up to two weeks for you for 24 hours.
But with such great facilities and a wonderful location, Chalet Arpitania is sure to be popular - don't miss out on your chance to stay here!

The OVO Network Review
Chalet Arpitania is a three-storey chalet for 14 guests, with five en suite bedrooms, an indoor pool, sauna and steam room and several south-facing balconies and terraces.
It's a 2km drive to the lifts and the village of La Clusaz, but the ski bus stops nearby, so you wouldn't need to use your car if you prefer not to.
We love the stylish decor at Chalet Arpitania - the graffiti-style artwork on the stairs and around the pool, the funky sofas and scatter cushions, and the wonderful big kitchen with high-end appliances and doors on to the sunny terrace.
The seating area is set apart from the dining area, and both have a fireplace and doors on to the balcony/terrace - and the views are breathtaking!
Each of the five bedrooms has its own shower or bathroom - a real bonus for a large group. We particularly like the two suites on the top floor, which each have dressing areas and a balcony with great views - a great way to start your day!
Two of the bedrooms have a double bed and a set of bunk beds, making them ideal for families.
But the real highlight of this stunning home has to be the pool and spa area - the indoor pool is big enough to get some real exercise, but when it's time to party, there's a bar area with a kitchenette, which opens on to the terrace! There's also a steam room and a sauna where you can relax after a busy day in the mountains.
Families with young children will need to make sure they are well supervised on the terrace, which has quite a steep drop. The garden is also steep, but the plus side is that you have an uninterrupted view!
Chalet Arpitania is an exciting house which is the perfect holiday base for several families, all year round - it's a place to have fun together as well as a great place to relax and recharge.

From the owner
This chalet, which dates back to the 60s, has been recently renovated and extended with passion, taste and, above all, with the desire to convey the pleasure of the mountains in both summer and winter.
Wherever you are in the house - in your bedroom, the living room or the spa area - the incredible view will connect you to the nature that surrounds you.
This south-facing chalet, in the village of La Gralliere, is just 50m from the bus stop, which will take you straight to the Bossonnet and La Balme ski lifts.
The village of La Clusaz, just a short drive from the chalet, lies at the foot of the Aravis mountain range and can be explored to your heart's content.

“Luxury chalet with stunning views”
A very warm welcome from Céline, home the manager. The chalet offers high-end amenities, even in the smallest details. The views are superb from every room, with many balconies. The pool is heated to 28 degrees, there is also a sauna and a steam room. The bedding is excellent, the 2 master suites upstairs are very spacious and the other 3 bedrooms are also very beautiful. Each has a private bathroom and separate toilet. The living areas are magnificent, with large windows offering mountain views. The kitchen is fully equipped and nothing is missing. The renovation is very recent, done with beautiful materials and a lovely decoration. We found the chalet very clean, thanks again to the 2 housekeepers and to Céline for her valuable advice and kindness.
