Chalet Hartza ...
This stylish contemporary chalet for 12 guests is just a 15-minute walk from the busy Alpine village of Le Grand Bornand. The nearest ski lifts are less than 2km away and the ski bus stops 150m from your door, so you'll have great access to more than 200km of pistes in the Aravis ski resorts.
In the summer, the ski slopes are replaced with lush meadows and a vast network of hiking and biking trails - it's a great time to visit.
There's always plenty going on in Le Grand Bornand, which has a packed programme of events throughout the summer and winter seasons. There's also a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants and a weekly market, where you can pick up local cheeses, meats and preserves.
After a busy day exploring the mountains, you'll look forward to returning to Chalet Hartza, where you can enjoy a drink on the terrace or in the Nordic hot tub and admire the incredible views of the village and the Aravis mountains beyond.
About the property ...
There is plenty of room for up to 12 guests at Chalet Hartza, with accommodation over three floors.
You'll enter the chalet on the top floor through the useful ski room, where you'll find plenty of storage for your equipment, ski racks, a heated boot rack and seating. There's a double garage on this floor too, as well as laundry facilities, and the first of the bedrooms - a double with an en suite shower room.
The impressive open plan living area is on the next floor down. A cosy sofa is arranged in front of the floor to ceiling windows, and if you can tear your eyes away from the incredible view, there's a television too. A woodburning stove separate the living area from the large dining table, which is big enough for everyone to sit down and eat together - it's sure to be the setting for some lively conversations as you share stories of a wonderful day. In the summer, you may prefer a barbecue on the terrace, which runs across the width of the chalet.
The large kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd, and the central island and breakfast bar mean there's plenty of room for several chefs to share the work.
There's a separate toilet on this floor and another double bedroom, with an en suite shower room and access to the terrace - the perfect place for your morning coffee.
There are three more bedrooms on the lower floor. The first, which has an en suite shower room with twin sinks, has a double or twin beds with two bunk beds above. It's a great family space, and has access to the terrace. There are two more double bedrooms, both of which open on to the terrace. These rooms share a shower room with a double sink, and a separate toilet. There's also a small room on this floor with a table football game.
The lower terrace is home to the sheltered Nordic hot tub and the sauna, which enjoy fabulous views over the rooftops to the village, with its pretty church, and the mountains beyond.
There's plenty of parking at Chalet Hartza, with the double garage as well as parking spaces, and an external staircase runs down the side of the property to the terrace.
About the area ...
When you stay at Chalet Hartza, you're just a 2km drive from the pistes and just a short walk from the ski bus stop.
The bus, which also serves La Clusaz, stops just 150m from the chalet, and it's free to use with your Aravis ski pass. This pass covers more than 220km of pristine pistes, in the resorts of Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Manigod, so there's plenty of challenge for skiers and boarders of all abilities. There are also plenty of cross-country trails.
Non-skiers won't be bored either - try hiking or snowshoeing, paragliding, hot-air ballooning, ice-skating or ice-climbing. Le Grand Bornand boasts the Famille Plus mark, ensuring that there is always plenty of entertainment and activities for even the youngest visitors.
In the summer, a network of walking and biking trails criss-cross the slopes, and you can pick up a route map for either at the tourist office. Le Grand Bornand has a beautiful nine-hole golf course with a great driving range, and on those very hot days, why not head for the fantastic swimming pool complex, with a restaurant and grassy areas for picnics.
If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there’s a climbing school, via ferrata routes, a tree-top adventure park, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.
August sees the international children’s festival - Au Bonheur des Mômes - in Le Grand Bornand, a week of magic shows, circus acts, theatre, games and workshops, with a grand firework finale. It’s always hugely popular, so make sure you book early to guarantee a holiday you’ll never forget!

The OVO Network Review
“A cosy and practical chalet with wonderful views”
Chalet Hartza is a contemporary chalet built in 2021. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms, with accommodation set over three floors.
It's an unusual chalet, in that the entrance and garage are on the top floor. The chalet's elevated position on the side of the mountain means the views are spectacular, but it also means access is difficult for those with limited mobility.
We love the practical ski room and laundry facilities on the top floor - at the end of the day exploring the mountains, you can stash all your outdoor gear without trailing it through the living area.
The kitchen is very well equipped, and with the breakfast bar and stools, it's a sociable space to be when you're preparing meals.
Three of the bedrooms have stylish en suite facilities, with wonderful walk-in showers. There are no baths here, but if you're after a long relaxing soak, what could be better than the Nordic hot tub on the terrace!
This cosy and practical chalet is managed by the owners, who live next door, so if you have any questions during your stay, they will be happy to help.

This chalet with its authentic charm and high level of comfort is perfect for a quiet and relaxing stay. We appreciated every little detail: the new equipment, the decoration, as well as the panoramic view on the mountains of Haute-Savoie. We felt at home in this large chalet worthy of a 5 star hotel. Thank you so much!

When the hosts state they have put their hearts and souls into this wonderful chalet, this is very true. The location is excellent, with easy access to Annecy, Mont Blanc and Geneva. Le Grand Bornand is convenient and beautiful. The chalet proved for be more than we could have wished for for a combined family two week vacation. Mado, Jean Marc and their daughter made us welcome and at ease.

A truly beautiful and well equipped chalet for a comfortable and relaxing holiday: Everything has been thought of in the smallest detail and our host was thoughtful and discreet. In addition, the view is superb, the location between Le Chinaillon and the village (easily reached by shuttle bus) is convenient and you can go for a walk on the paths from the chalet.

A big thank you to the owners of the chalet Hartza for the welcome, the cheese and the saucisson, everything was perfect. We came for an outdoors holiday, in order to ski, snowshoe and yooner, it was excellent! All our expectations were exceeded and everything was really perfect at the chalet. We will come back.
— Tiffany N. Jan 2022
“Very high quality service”
In addition to the charming welcome from the hosts, we appreciated the quality of the chalet equipment, the magnificent American-style cuisine and the layout of the bedrooms. What we really loved is the view over the valley which is very charming, but the jacuzzi and sauna were really superb after a day of family activities. Thank you for these wonderful memories that we will keep for a long time. See you soon.
