About Chalet Patagonia ...
Much care and attention has been lavished on the renovation of this stunning chalet, which is just 100m from the La Clusaz ski slopes and 1.5km from the centre of La Clusaz, where you will find plenty of bars, shops and restaurants.
The stylish interior has been designed so that even when 12 people are staying at Chalet Patagonia, everyone can find some privacy when they want it. Skilled local craftsmen were used to make much of the furniture, and the fittings are all of the highest quality. This attention to detail, combined with the chalet’s superb position close to the popular La Balme pistes, is sure to make your holiday very special.
The property ...
Sleeping up to 12 people in five comfortable bedrooms with four bathrooms (one with a hammam), there's plenty of room for everyone to relax at Chalet Patagonia.
Four of the bedrooms are on the ground floor - two doubles, a twin room (which can be made into a double if you prefer), which are all en suite, and a room with two sets of bunk beds. One of the en suite bathrooms has a hammam too!
There is also a small kitchen on this floor, which is useful for preparing food to eat in the garden. This kitchen has a huge impressive stove with built-in seating - the perfect place to warm up when you come in from the snow!
The fifth bedrooms, a large en suite double, is on the floor above, where you will also find the lovely open plan living area and a large family kitchen. There's a large dining table where you can all eat together, and cosy chairs around an ethanol fireplace. Why not grab a bottle of wine from the wine cellar (payable at the end of your stay) to enjoy on the sunny balcony?
The furnished terrace is the perfect place to catch some sun, enjoy a barbecue or perhaps relax in the Nordic hot tub after an active day in the mountains.
About the area ...
Skiers of all abilities can ski right back to the door of this perfectly-located self-catering La Clusaz chalet.
The ski bus stops 20m from the chalet and will get you to the nearest lifts in just a few minutes, putting the whole of the La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand ski fields at your disposal - more than 220km of pistes on one single ski pass.
The local ESF ski school holds beginnners lessons on the piste close to the chalet, so children can ski there and back safely, without having to cross any roads. Cross-country skiers will find great terrain at Lac des Confin and the Glieres plateau, just a short drive away.
It’s just a 20-minute walk to La Clusaz village, where non-skiers will find an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor pools and spa centre and a cinema.
In the spring and summer, there are plenty of walks from the door of Chalet Patagonia, or you can take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking.
There’s a tennis club and riding centre just a few minutes’ walk away, and other activities within easy reach of La Clusaz include white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding.
The beautiful medieval town of Annecy, with a wide selection of shops and restaurants, is less than 30 minutes drive away. Its lake, the cleanest in Europe, is a great place for swimming and water sports, or just hire a boat and explore some of the peaceful lakeside beaches.

From the owner
Every time we come to the chalet we feel as if we are wrapped up in a soft cocoon...
I was lucky enough, throughout my childhood, to go skiing every year with my parents, surrounded by friends and their children. Each time, I came back amazed by these weeks spent on the snowy slopes, and I keep a magnificent memory, after a good day of skiing, of these snacks made of big sandwiches and hot chocolate, of these long evenings of card games and laughter by the fire, then, later, of these long discussions to remake the world with friends.
I used to come regularly to La Clusaz.
Later, for about fifteen years, as paragliding enthusiasts, we came back to the region again and again with Pierre, my husband: flying together over Lake Annecy, La Tournette, the Aravis, the summit of Lachat in Grand Bornand, was a constantly renewed wonder that we couldn't do without for one weekend.
We would end the hot summer days, after magnificent flights, by Lake Annecy, bathing in its turquoise waters surrounded by mountains. In 2008, we started looking for a chalet in La Clusaz and were lucky enough to be able to buy the Patagonia chalet, an old farmhouse dating from the end of the 19th century.
At the time, it was a farmhouse that was a bit atypical for the region, low in height and in poor condition. In love with the region and its still rural and agricultural character, in spite of its development, we took it to heart to renovate this building only with noble materials, with the help of Compagnons carpenters and cabinet makers: old wood, stone, and we went to look for these materials sometimes very far: the old wooden beams of the frame come from old Swiss halls, the stone on the floor is made of old alfalfa stone from Italy.
Finally, the fayence stove is of Austrian origin. Wishing to rediscover the warm, reassuring and cosy atmosphere of our childhood winters, we furnished the chalet with large leather armchairs, chose thick woollen fabrics for the curtains and placed numerous fur cushions.
The chalet is designed to accommodate 12 people, including a maximum of 8 adults, while preserving the privacy of each person: 3 bedrooms are arranged as suites, with their own private bathroom and toilet, two bedrooms, including the children's dormitory, share a bathroom with a double stone washbasin and a shower-hammam. The small kitchen on the ground floor allows you to have a snack after skiing, leaning against the fayence stove which diffuses a gentle heat, and to have the children eat separately from the parents, or to prepare a meal to eat outside on the south-facing terrace.
On the first floor, the living-dining room is large, allowing you to gather for a convivial aperitif with friends around the central fireplace. The large, well-equipped kitchen, with its two ovens and two dishwashers, is ideal for preparing large, festive meals.
Each time we arrive at the chalet, we feel like we are in a big, soft cocoon, isolated from the outside world and its stresses.
We would like to share these strong feelings with you during your stay, and hope that you will appreciate the quality of this renovation, which I think can be described as quite exceptional.. We wish you a very pleasant stay with us.
Anne-Christel and Pierre.

“Relaxation and luxury”
The chalet is beautiful and very well equipped, but you have to take into account that it is located by the road (you need to be careful if you have children). However, the Nordic bath is truly an added value, as well as the hammam. It's really nice to relax after a good day of skiing.

“Very well located and very comfortable!”
Superb chalet, very well located, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Warm welcome. The outside terrace is very pleasant for lunch after a morning on the slopes.

“A chalet with a personality”
We loved our stay at Chalet Patagonia. The space, the deco, the big dining table... Great all around! Ski bus in the evening stop quite early (around 7:45pm) so it's better to have a car.
— Laura M. Mar 2019
Chalet Patagonia is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 children and we had a lot of fun in this chalet. It is very well located and we loved going back via the piste in the afternoon. We also loved the wood heated hot tub .... takes some time to prepare but great fun once you are in and there is something special to have to get the fire going to heat it up.The style of the property is great and the chalet has been very well thought off. Ski in ski out is great too and we loved the outside wood heated hot tub. Overall very nice place and very comfortable The things we liked in the area: views on the mountains and proximity to city centre.

“Great chalet, spotless and nice design.”
Close to a path leading to the slopes. It is also located next to a poney club and a farm selling the famous Reblochon so very kids friendly. Laurent the manager is here to give you any tips about your stay. I definitively recommend this chalet for families.
— Karim & Julie C. Mar 2018
“Splendid and luxurious chalet”
Even with so many people in our group, this authentic chalet has allowed to each one of us to have his own space and enjoy high-standing services. We felt at home and had a fabulous time. Thank you Laurent, the manager of the house, to be so flexible and helpful. Nearby we enjoyed lovely walks, sledging, skiing, horse riding, and easy access to shops. Icing on the cake: you won't have to remove the snow from your alley!!!
