About Lodge Fauspé ...
The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at the 5-star Lodge Fauspé. In a quiet spot with stunning views over the La Balme ski area, this luxurious chalet is just a short drive from the bars, shops and restaurants of La Clusaz.
Built by local craftsmen in local reclaimed wood and Aravis stone, it cleverly combines contemporary style and comfort with mountain charm and tradition, offering light-filled rooms and cosy living areas.
Two of the bedrooms share a south-facing balcony, and there is a sunny terrace where you can enjoy a barbecue and a glass of wine on a warm evening. Soothe away the aches and pains after a hard day on the slopes in the indoor jacuzzi and sauna.
This is a unique property which knows it’s something special, and doesn’t need to shout about it!
The property ...
Parties of up to 10 will find Lodge Fauspé the perfect choice for a very special holiday. Built using local materials and a lot of imagination, the owners have decorated and furnished it with just as much care. Oak floors and panelled ceilings with huge beams are complemented by leather sofas and fur throws, with unique light fittings and stunning artwork.
The well-equipped kitchen is hand-built and features unusual metal worktops. It is open to the dining room, with its custom-built table seating 10, and the large living room, with squishy leather sofas, flat screen TV and an open fire.
Large windows make the most of the light and the fabulous views, and open onto the terrace, which has a dining area and a stone-built barbecue - a great place to relax after an energetic day in the mountains. There’s also a double bedroom with en suite bathroom on this floor.
A beautiful wooden staircase winds its way around a huge pine tree trunk to the second floor, where there are four more bedrooms, sharing two bathrooms. All of the bathrooms are beautifully fitted, with handmade sinks and local stone tiles. To cap it all, well-insulated walls and geothermal heating mean there will always be a warm welcome for you at Lodge Fauspé.
About the area ...
Lodge Fauspé is superbly located, just minutes from La Clusaz and overlooking the popular La Balme ski field - a favourite with our visitors and French freeride world champion Candide Thovex.
The ski lift is a short drive away and parking is free, but if you’d rather not take the car, the ski bus stops at the end of the road, putting the whole of the Annecy ski resorts at your disposal. Your Aravis ski pass will give you access to more than 220km of perfect pistes and 95 lifts in the stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod.
Cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers will find great terrain at the nearby Lac des Confins and the Beauregard plateau.
If you fancy a break from the pistes, La Clusaz has an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools and 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.
Lodge Fauspé is also the perfect base for the Défi Foly competition, when skiers end the season by seeing how far they can ski across the Lac des Confins!
There is no shortage of summer fun and adventure within a few minutes of Lodge Fauspé. There are plenty of gentle walks in the Lac des Confins area, where you will also find a tennis club, golf course, driving range, fishing and a riding centre.
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.
If you'd like to enjoy all the action of the French Alps, combined with the relaxation of a stay at Lodge Fauspe, check our calendar to see when the property is available. If you need a little time to make your plans, we can hold your date for up to 24 hours. But don't wait too long - fabulous properties like Lodge Fauspe are always in big demand.

From the owner
A welcoming and luxurious chalet and has been the perfect setting for fabulous holidays, no matter the season...
We’ve loved holidaying in the mountains over the last 35 years, and especially holidays in La Clusaz. In 2008 we were lucky enough to be able to fulfil one of our wildest dreams - we purchased a chalet facing the wondrous Aravis mountain range!
We decided not to go the traditional route by naming the property after an aspect of the town’s history, or the local flowers and fauna, or even to take a name from the colourful local dialect! The name “Fauspe” is much more personal to us and original, being as it is a combination of the initial sounds from the names of our two children: Faustin and Perrine!
We asked the architects to use stone from the Aravis and reclaimed pine from renovated farms in the area, as we wanted the chalet to feature local materials crafted by local artisans and craftsmen, to create an atmosphere that was subtly modern yet cosy. We are really happy with what they have achieved.
Lodge Fauspe is a welcoming and luxurious chalet and has been the perfect setting for fabulous holidays full of warm and special moments with family and friends ever since, no matter what the season.

The atmosphere is very welcoming and the decor is really nice. It's the third year that we have been back, and really love being there with family and friends. The pistes at La Balme are just a few hundred meters away - very practical, even if it's a bit longer coming back due to a one-way road. The view from the chalet is exceptional.
