The OVO Network Review

Chalet Chenavray is a five-bedroom, four-bathroom chalet for 10 guests, spread over three floors, with 130 M2 of floor space.

Chalet Chenavray was one of the first chalets to join the OVO Network and has always been popular with multi-generational families looking for a comfortable chalet in a great location.

The lower floor was at one time set up as a separate apartment, so has its own entrance, kitchen, dining area, lounge, bathroom and bedroom, and its own deck.

The sauna is also in this apartment.

There is no internal access to the rest of the chalet, a bonus for parents with youngsters, or grandparents who prefer to have their own space while on holiday with the family.

The fireplace, living space and dining area are on the main floor, as is the main kitchen, which is small but well-equipped. On the top floor some of the bedrooms are smaller than those in more modern chalets, please check the plans for accurate detailed information.

The large main terrace is to the side and rear of the chalet, with a brick barbecue, table tennis table, dining area and private space for sunbathing.

In summer the automatic irrigation system takes care of watering the window boxes and flower beds.

In winter the drive can sometimes be challenging, depending on snow conditions. Happily, it is short, and there is room to park cars off the road at the bottom of the drive and walk up.

“We have the best of both worlds, winter wonderland and summer pastimes in a chalet which has all the modern comforts...”

“We first visited the Haute Savoie area with our children about 25 years ago. At that time we used to tour with our caravan, accompanied by friends and their children in their caravans.

On many occasions we ended up staying close to the Manigod area for our main holiday. In fact my son and his friend telephoned for their GCE results from the lakeside at Menthon and we celebrated with friends and children by a dinner on the evening cruise down the lake, one of life’s unforgettable memories.

Our friends bought a house here and after we stayed with them, we longed for our own chalet. Then one Christmas we found one in our price range and refurbished it both outside and inside to make it the chalet you see today.

We have tried to incorporate modern bathrooms but retain some of the old world charm. We never tire of the wonderful views of the Manigod valley - winter and summer we can spend hours just looking at “our garden”

Top of our list are the magnificent colours of the autumn, and seeing the cows and goats being brought down to their winter pastures from the high plateau.

We feel our chalet is a home from home.

Our family enjoys the fun of sking, snowshoe walking, tobogganing, ice skating in the winter, and the sauna is in high demand for those aching limbs after the first ski downhills.

The family learnt to ski here at Croix Fry, which is about six minutes away from the chalet, and now enjoy the plethora of runs available which cater for all abilities. In fact, our granddaughter (4) is just starting to learn to ski.

My husband loves sitting on the balcony on a clear evening and watches the stars (wrapped up warm of course) – you seem to feel as one with nature. In the summer again we love sitting on the veranda watching the view.

We plant the geraniums and lovingly tend them and enjoy them cascading over the balcony.

The family also visit in the summer and love the stunning walks to the high mountains, as well as the activities on Lake Annecy at Menthon and Tailloires. Cycle rides around the lake are a new venture which we have enjoyed.

We all love our visits to Annecy and we never tire of walking around the old town, stopping for a coffee, or perhaps an ice cream. We are spoilt for choice for restaurants but love the shellfish restaurant as you enter the old town.

My wife loves the shops and Saturday market in Thones., and our favourite treat is a coffee and cake in the patisserie in the arcades in Thones.

Another favourite visit of ours is to the Resistance museum just outside Thones. We love going to the Plateau de Glieres and walking around the historic pathway, you realise what brave men and women these people were.

We usually take a picnic and spend the day there, although there are restaurants where you can get a good plat du jour.

To sum up, we just relax when we are here. It is a cliché but we have the best of both worlds, winter wonderland and summer pastimes in a chalet which has all the modern comforts in a rural community. ”

“Excellent second experience”

Excellent second experience

— Daniel J. Feb 2024

“This week will remain an excellent memory for all of us”

There were 6 of us during our stay, which gave us plenty of space. The accommodation was as described, pleasant and comfortable, 5/10 min from the resort of Manigod. We were welcomed by Steve, who gave us all the explanations we needed. This week will remain an excellent memory for all of us. Be careful if you plan to come with young children, the inside stairs are rather steep.
