The OVO Network Review

Chalet Brevins is a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom chalet for 12 (max 10 adults) spread over 2 floors and 220m2 of floor space.

The chalet is in an isolated, peaceful and calm location, the owners manage it themselves and are completely aware of the pros and cons of living in such a location as they have a holiday home close to the chalet which they visit most weekends. They have reams of tips and advice about the local area they are very happy to share, to save you time when planning how you want to spend your time at Chalet Brevins.

The owners have achieved their dream of staying in touch with the natural surroundings and the history of the farm building they have restored so beautifully, complementing the best features of an old farm with those extra luxury touches which will give guests an extra-special holiday, from the toboggan runs in the garden to the extra beds in the mazot, the professional quality kitchen, the pool table, the cosy fireplace, the tv area, the hammam and the sheltered outdoor jacuzzi, spacious en suite bedrooms and lots of room for all of the guests to spread out both inside and out of doors.

The calm and the views from the chalet are just wonderful, the accent is on rejuvenation, contemplation and luxury. The chalet is a perfect base for multi generational families, groups of friends, and because of the wonderful facilities, a pleasure to visit any time of year, for a taste of traditional mountain living with contemporary luxury facilities and features.

“Ever since we visited here for the very first time, we knew that we had discovered a taste of paradise.”

"If you are looking to stay in an exceptional place, to breathe in the pure mountain air, immerse yourself in silence, and admire views across a stunning valley to the mountains beyond whilst enjoying the comfort, charm and authenticity of a five star luxury chalet, then you have found the right place!

Every day of the year you will be treated to ever-changing breath-taking scenery. Picture yourself with your friends and family snuggled around the fire watching snowflakes fall after a day out skiing or walking in the fresh air, having taken a turn in the jacuzzi or the spa..

the good life indeed! There are just as many memorable treats to experience in the summer time, with walks from the front door, and drinks and dining out on one of the four terraces surrounding the chalet with only the mountains for neighbours.

The chalet is situated so close to nature that it is not at all unusual to see deer grazing in the surrounding fields. Yet it is also close to the village of Manigod where it is possible to buy fresh croissants each morning, ten minutes from the ski fields of Croix Fry/ Merdassier linked to La Clusaz, and in the other direction it's less than a dozen kilometres to Thones where you will find a variety of restaurants, boutiques, bakeries etc.

You're close to everything you need but a long way from hustle and bustle!

We discovered Les Brevins in 2006.

We were looking to buy a property in Manigod - Xavier's father was born here and Xavier and his family spent every weekend and holiday in the family chalet in the village whilst he was growing up.

He wanted to return to his roots, back to the mountains, and was keen to find a peaceful haven to escape to after the rigours of the working week. As soon as we visited the property for the very first time with our own children we knew we had found THE perfect place, our very own taste of paradise.

Not only had we stumbled upon a perfect site but there was a very old farm built around the end of the 17th century, a falling-down wooden workshop built in the 1950s and a mazot, a sort of chalet in miniature, used in its day for storing hay, wood or other farm materials.

First of all we set about renovating the workshop, to turn it into a comfortable place to spend our weekends and holidays. As our children grew older we made the mazot into an independent bedroom.

Finally in 2013 we turned our attention to renovating the old farmhouse, so that we could share this amazing site. The farm will be ready to welcome its first visitors from the end of November 2014! We have honoured as much of the ancient character of the building as possible, and tried to remain respectufl of the spaces within this 300-year-old building.

All of the structure of the chalet, the basement with its arched cellars, and most of the exterior wood of the property is original. We have also retained much of the original old wood of the interior walls as possible, and have tried to marry these materials with modern materials of equally good quality wherever necessary.

We love travelling with our children and friends and our travelling experiences have informed our decision to create a property which provides luxury and comfort, where each guest can find his or her own space to enable them to relax, enjoy life and feel good. We have deliberated over every detail in order to make your stay here an absolute joy and pleasure, we want you to leave with fantastic memories and the desire to return! We decided to create two main living spaces, one on each floor.

Downstairs the main living space is 80m2 and consists of the lounge with fireplace, a TV room, dining space, and a high-end kitchen equipped with an induction hob, two ovens, a microwave, dishwasher, American-style fridge and temperature-controlled wine cellar...then there is a further 40m2 communal area on the first floor with a pool table, bar area with bar stools, and a steam room with light therapy treatments. We've created five bedrooms, each with their own decorative style.

There is the "Deco" room, the country-style room, the chalet-style room, and two rooms for children and teenagers.

Outside you will find an exterior jacuzzi sheltering underneath its own roof space with a view across to Etale, and three other terraces, one with a view across to the Aiguille de Manigod, a large terrace with a dining table for the entire group with views acroos the valley and finally an evening terrace with views across to La Tournette. We've tried to think of every detail so that you can relax, de-stress and escape the rigours of everyday life...

Finally we would just like to mention just some of the activities it is possible to enjoy locally in the Aravis mountains: skiing, snow shoe walking, climbing trees, mountaineering and rock climbing, marvelling at waterfalls, cycling around Lake Annecy, the list is endless. As we've tried to create an environment that you won't want to stray too far away from, we have also provided snow shoes, sledges, walking itineraries, games, DVDs and books which you are welcome to use.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

“Luxury chalet with endless activities”

We had a wonderful week with our family enjoying the various activities offered at the chalet: billiards, hammam, jacuzzi, snowshoeing, fireplace and the friendliness of Xavier, the owner.

“It is one of the best weeks we can ever remember”

The chalet was amazing with all it has, it is quietly set in location with stunning views all round. Some of the higher peaks in view got their first dusting of snow to add to its drama. The hosts were fantastic and, following being shown how everything worked upon arrival, left us alone until the time we had to leave at the end of the week. It is one of the best weeks we can ever remember. We were spoilt for choice to just sit and relax in the hot tub, on one of the terraced areas or the spacious balcony. Or the bedroom balcony above. Often listening to the idyĺic cowbells with tranquil sound of the river far below in the background. It was also great fun having a friendly game of pool or playing one of the many board games that are there. You can do it all there! The kitchen has everything anyone could want to serve up a veritable festive feast and be laid out to be eaten at a lovely large dining table, or make a quick snack to eat at the kitchen breakfast bar. The log burner kept the place toasty warm although it stays that way even when not lit, but is such a dramatic focal point when it is lit and is easy to light and keep topped up with logs. We can't wait to come back, looking right now for when we can make that happen.
