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
Lovely stay. Thank you so much!

“Relaxing and resourcing”
We had an amazing stay at the chalet des Enfants with friends. It is the perfect relaxing and cozy spot with spectacular views. La Clusaz town is also so close which is a great bonus! We loved the hot tub, the mountain views, and how walkable the town was. We want to come back!
— Sophia L. Nov 2021
“Good stay in this chalet”
Lovely hot tub. Great welcome.
— Jeoffrey P. Aug 2021
“Exactly what we were looking for”
A very spacious chalet, ideal for a large family (the living room is big enough for 2 families with children), and perfectly located. The jacuzzi is a big plus, as well as the possibility of parking for 3 cars. The games room on the lower level is very popular with children (and parents for the tranquility it provides!!). The proximity of the village center is also an argument in the choice of this chalet. Despite the closure of the lifts, we practiced many activities: hiking, tobogganing, free style and even skiing when access to the slopes was possible by shuttle. It's the third year we come to the chalet, we have always appreciated the welcome of the local team.
— Bruno J. Feb 2021
“Perfect, like every time”
We have been renting this chalet for 6 years for its excellent location with children. This year, despite the absence of ski lifts, we made the most of the area and discovered snowshoeing.
— Bruno T. Feb 2021
“Book with no hesitation!”
The chalet is exactly like on the website. It's a very relaxing place for the adults, and also for the children thanks to a fantastic playroom. Thank you Janelle, the manager, for your wonderful welcome and the welcome basket. We enjoyed amazing weather in October, with 4 seasons in 1 day: sunny linch on the terrace, gorgeous walks in colourful forest, and to end up the day: snowball fight for the whole family!
— Clemenceau D. Oct 2020
“A perfect stay on every level”
Chalet Les Enfants is near the village but in a quiet location. The children loved the sledging near the property. The welcome and service was fantastic. Everything was perfect.

Beautifully finished chalet in a quiet position on the edge of the village, has absolutely everything you would need for your stay. When we arrived the cleaning team had finished and every room was immaculate.I could not think of one thing that had not been provided for a fantastic holiday. Janelle was very helpful, personable and efficient providing assistance and local knowledge. Very quiet location, ideal for a family. The hot tub was amazing at the end of the day. The chalet is very well set up and ideal for extended families to share.

Great snow! Splendid chalet! We'll be back.
— Morgane B. Dec 2019
My family and I had a good time in this chalet. The fact that it was semi detached was not a problem at all like I first feared. It's very close to the resort center. The area is also fantastic to explore.
— André G. Oct 2019

The house is very well equipped, and the hot tub is great. I'll be back!

“A magnificent chalet for great holidays with children”
A great place designed for family holidays. A magnificent view of the mountains, and a hot tub for relaxing after skiing. To be repeated!
— Arnaud A. Apr 2019
“A really lovely holiday”
We had a really lovely holiday in this very welcoming chalet. Being so close to the pistes and the resort is a real bonus. There were 10 of us (three generations of the same family) and there was plenty of room for everyone - there's no shortage of space. We'd recommend it, and would come back next year. A big thank you to Janelle for her smiling welcome and her great advice.
— Bruno J. Mar 2019
“Perfect in every way!”
Everything was perfect, as usual! Thanks again.
— Bruno T. Feb 2019
“Beautiful, clean and comfy”
Chalet des Enfants is a beautiful chalet, extremely well equipped for a self catering stay in la Clusaz. The chalet was lovely and clean on arrival and plenty space for the 9 of us. It was extremely cosy in living quarters. The hot tub was great, and easy to operate.
— Morna B. Feb 2019
“A magical holiday”
We would like to thank the manager, Janelle, for her help on the telephone before we arrived and her kindness. we had a warm welcome at a magical chalet - very tastefully decorated. And the Christmas decorations were fantastic. The comfort is a bonus, it was just like being at home: warmth, comfortable beds, plenty of toilets and showers. The ski hire shop was great, and the view from the chalet is extraordinary.

“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. Mar 2018
We had a great time. Janelle, the manager, was welcoming and helpful. We really loved this chalet.
— Iulia B. Feb 2018
“A nice house”

“Ideal for us”
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. Jan 2017
