The delightful 5* Chalet Kalyssia is just outside St Jorioz, overlooking the magnificent Lake Annecy. The wonderful view is perhaps best enjoyed from the hot tub, or maybe in summer, the swimming pool!
There's more to see inside - this luxury chalet for 11 (10 adults) also has a pool room, a hammam and a wine cellar!
The accommodation is in two parts - the main house, which has three bedrooms for seven people, and the annexe, which has two en suite double bedrooms for four people, and a family sitting room, making it perfect for a family who enjoy their own space. This space also offers an additional single bed (please refer to our floor plan and photos).
The property is just a 9km drive from the fascinating medieval town of Annecy, where you'll find wonderful canal-side restaurants, shops and antique and produce markets. If you'd rather stay closer to home, there is a good choice of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops in St Jorioz, which also has a lakeside beach.
Chalet Kalyssia is 10 minutes from a lakeside beach and just 25 minutes from skiing or hiking in Semnoz, making it a great choice whatever the season.
Great to know : Chalet Kalyssia is entirely fenced !
About the property...
The luxury accommodation at Chalet Kalyssia is set over three floors. The main entrance is on the ground floor, where you will immediately see a large changing room where you can store all your outside clothes - and grab a seat on the chairlift while you get ready! There's also a separate toilet.
The rest of the floor is the stunning open plan living area, beautifully decorated with old wood and soft neutral shades. There are cosy sofas in front of the fireplace, a large dining table with room for everyone to eat together, and a stylish fully-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and central island. This room also opens on to the balcony, with stunning views over the lake and the mountains. From here you can also access the terrace, with a barbecue area, sunbeds, swimming pool (summer only) and hot tub.
On a mezzanine floor overlooking this area is the stunning master suite, featuring a king size bed, and en suite with feature glass shower.
There are two more bedrooms on the lower floor - one is a double with an extra single bed, and the other is a large double with a shower room. There's another shower room on this floor in the leisure area, where you can work out in the gym or relax in the steam room or spa bath. At the other end of this floor is the wine cellar, where you can share a bottle with friends.
The fourth and fifth en suite double bedrooms can be found in the annexe, which also has a large living room with a snooker table, sofas and also an additional hidden single bed (please refer to our floor plan and photos). It's an ideal space for a family who would like their own privacy.
The garage has room for one car, and there's also room to store skis and bikes.
About the area...
Saint-Jorioz is one of the many beautiful lakeside villages that are dotted around Lake Annecy. It has a good selection of shops and restaurants, as well as a beach and a lakeside footpath.
There are more shops and restaurants in Annecy itself, which is a beautiful medieval town on the edge of the lake. On a sunny day, choose one of the canalside restaurants and watch the world go by. There are also some delightful independent shops, three weekly produce markets, and a monthly antiques market.
In the summer, try out the watersports, swim in the crystal clear lake, or enjoy a cruise across the lake.
If you are staying at Chalet Kalyssia in the winter, you can ski at the small resort of Semnoz (26km), where you can buy a lift pass by the hour. The resort of La Sambuy, near Seythenex, south of Lake Annecy, is less than an hour away (25km) and has 10 pistes ranging from green to black. The Aravis stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod are all less than an hour away, and offer 220km of superb skiing.
If you are looking for a five-star base where you can enjoy the mountains and the lake, Chalet Kalyssia sounds just perfect for you! Why not check your holiday dates against our calendar - we can hold a provisional booking for 24 hours while you finalise your arrangements. But remember to come back - it would be a shame to miss your chance to stay in this unique property.

The OVO Network Review
“A year-round choice for family groups”
The 5* Chalet Kalyssia in St Jorioz is a very unique property - sleeping 11 (10 adults and a child), the accommodation is split over two buildings.
The main chalet has three bedrooms sleeping seven, with three bathrooms, and the annexe has two double en suite bedrooms, as well as a great family living room with a billiard table and games. The layout makes Chalet Kayssia the perfect choice for two families who want a holiday together, but still need their own privacy. However, when you want to get together there's plenty of room, both in the main chalet and in the huge games room in the annexe.
We think Chalet Kayssia has all the luxury ingredients for the perfect holiday - there's an outdoor hot tub with stunning views over Lake Annecy and the mountains, and in summer, there's even a pool. With sunbathing on the deck, a barbecue and plancha grill, it's going to be difficult to tear yourself away!
But there's so much to explore in this area - the medieval town of Annecy is just a 10 minute drive away, and offers great markets, superb restaurants and interesting independent shops, as well as a year-round programme of entertainment.
In summer there are top class golf courses around the lake, as well as a great choice of watersports and beaches. There's also great hiking and biking in the Bauges In the winter, the ski resort of Semnoz is just 30 minutes away, and you can get to the ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand in an hour.
You'll need a car when you stay at Chalet Kalyssia but it's only 2km in to the village of St Jorioz, and your nearest restaurants, shops and supermarkets.
With all this, plus a wine cellar and a leisure area, we think Chalet Kalyssia is going to be a popular choice all year round - there's always something happening with a short drive and so much more to explore if you venture a little further.

From the Owner
The discovery of Chalet Kalyssia fulfilled all my expectations.
I love being in the Alps, and had for some time been looking for a house which was both close to my home town of Annecy and surrounded by nature. The discovery of Chalet Kalyssia fulfilled all my expectations.
The location is exceptional, in the higher area of Saint Jorioz, one of the splendid villages on the edge of the lake, just 15 minutes from Annecy and 20 minutes from the ski staton of Semnoz.
It is in the heart of the Bauges natural park, in a forest setting opening on to a meadow. There is a 3500m2 garden, which is fully enclosed, with a breathtaking 180 degree view of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
The chalet was designed so that all the rooms enjoy this stunning view. The huge wooden terrace is an invitation to admire the wonderful Alpine countryside, which changes from day to day, according to the seasons and the weather.
Huge windows, stone walls and real old wood are everywhere, and help to make the chalet feel cosy and welcoming.
It was with the help of my family that I carried out extensive work on the chalet, which has grown from three to five double bedrooms, each with its own television and bathroom. There's also a family room with a games area and a home cinema. The wifi network has been extended, and electric curtains have been added. The heating system and the insulation have also been enhanced.
We have landscaped the area overlooking the lake, creating areas for play and relaxation; the terrace has been extended, a petanque piste has been added, as well as a sauna and outdoor spa. Swings are soon to be added, to complete the heated pool.
We took particular care in furnishing and decorating the chalet with unique pieces that all help to make Kalyssia such an exceptional chalet.
Whether you are coming to enjoy the turquoise waters of Lake Annecy; to walk or ski in the Bauges; to stroll around the countless alleys of old Annecy; or just to relax in your private haven, Chalet Kalyssia is the ideal place for an unforgettable holiday. We look forward to seeing you.
