McCanna Lodge ...
This stunning south-west facing chalet for 11 can be found on the road between the charming village of Manigod and the ski station of La Croix Fry.
The chalet is on the sunny side of the valley and enjoys fabulous views of the Aravis mountains from the hot tub on the terrace. There's easy access to the main road, but the property's large plot means you'll always have plenty of privacy. The road is regularly cleared of snow and the ski bus, which stops at the end of the drive, connects Manigod with the ski areas at La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
There's a popular bakery and a restaurant in Manigod, with more restaurants in nearby Merdassier, which may be closed out of season. But the nearest restaurant to McCanna Lodge is La Table de Marie Ange, a superb restaurant where you can try the best of local produce.
About the property ...
There's plenty of a room for up to 11 guests at the stylish five-bedroom McCanna Lodge. Accommodation is set over three floors, plus a mezzanine floor under the eaves, and there are three well-appointed bathrooms.
You'll enter the property on the ground floor, either from the main door, where there's plenty of storage for coats or from the car port which leads directly to the ski room.
The entrance lobby, which has a toilet, leads to the spacious living area. The well-equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, with its large dining table which can seat up to 12. This is where you'll get together to cook and eat, as well as catch up on your mountain adventures. There's access from here to the ski store, which leads to the car port.
A central, four-sided fireplace separates this area from the large seating area. You'll have your own bar with fireside recliners as well as cosy sofas and a Smart TV. There's also access to a sheltered balcony, where you can enjoy a nightcap under the stars.
The impressive master suite takes up the whole of the first floor. This luxurious retreat has its own lobby with chairs and a table overlooking the living room. There's a sofa and television in the bedroom, as well as a cassette-style fireplace for cosy evenings in. This room also has a private balcony with wonderful views of the Aravis, a separate dressing area and a large en suite bathroom with a bath, two hand basins and a separate shower.
There's another large double bedroom under the eaves, with a lounge area and workspace. Guests are sure to appreciate the super fast Starlink internet connection, which is especially convenient for remote working.
The remaining three bedrooms are on the lower ground floor. One of them has one double bed and a single bed (the double bed can be converted into two singles), and there is a shower room along the corridor. There are also two double bedrooms one of which can be made into two singles, both bedrooms share a large bath and shower room. Also on this floor is a games room/TV lounge with a table football and a laundry room. This floor is a great place to rest and relax after a busy day in the mountains, and will be particularly popular with older children.
McCanna Lodge is set on a huge plot, with two stone terraces, a wooden terrace with hot tub and a pétanque court. There is plenty of parking for up to four cars.
About the area ...
McCanna Lodge couldn’t be better placed to enjoy everything the La Clusaz area has to offer. You’re just a five-minute drive from the pistes at Croix Fry (altitude 1500m). Here novice skiers can learn the basics with an ESF instructor, while the more experienced will enjoy the 220km of pistes that link the area to La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
Parking at the pistes is free, but if you’d rather leave the car at home, the ski bus stops at the end of the driveway and will have you on the slopes in no time.
Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails to choose from, and non-skiers are not forgotten either, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides all just a short drive away.
In the summer, you can fill your days with activities or take it easy - you’ll be spoiled for choice in the Aravis region. There’s no shortage of walks, from mountain trails to hiking on the Gliéres plateau.
If road or mountain biking is more your style, the chalet overlooks the route of the Tour de France when it passes through Manigod on the way to La Clusaz. In summer some of the ski lifts become bike lifts - take the easy way up and come down at your own pace.
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, or white-water rafting - just some of the many activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod.
Lake Annecy is only 30 minutes away and offers lots of watersports including water skiing, wake-boarding, sailing, and diving. If this all sounds too energetic, why not just take a cruise, or hire a boat and find yourself a quiet lakeside beach? Whatever you do, you’re sure to have a holiday you won’t forget.

The OVO Network Review
“Perfect for a family get-together”
McCanna Lodge is a five-bedroom, three storey property for 11 guests.
Set halfway between the village of Manigod and the slopes at La Croix Fry, you'll need a car to get around during your holiday, but you've got great access to the main road, which is always kept snow-free, and the ski bus stops outside the property.
We love the arrangement of the bedrooms at McCanna Lodge, with a very spacious master suite, complete with dressing room and en suite bathroom and another double bedroom upstairs, and three bedrooms. This lower floor works very well for children, who also have the games room and TV lounge to themselves.
There's also a desk (with great views) in one of the upper bedrooms, enabling you to keep in touch with work if necessary.
This living area is a great space to get together, with a sociable kitchen and breakfast bar, leather recliners for cosy fireside chats and a TV lounge with comfortable sofas.
This charming property has been a much-loved holiday home for many years, and has been designed by the owners with sociable get-togethers in mind - we're sure you'll find it perfect for your gathering.

From the owner
McCanna Lodge - our treasured family home
Nestled in the Manigod Valley, McCanna Lodge has been our treasured family home for more than 20 years.
The time has come to share this wonderful chalet with guests and we hope you will be as happy in our magnificent home as we have been.
The house was designed by us, working alongside a local architect, and constructed by local artisans. We envisaged our dream home as a child-friendly environment, tailored to embrace the transition of our children from toddlers to teenagers and now adults, allowing everyone to find a cosy nook to relax.
The kitchen is the warm heart of the chalet, a space to gather together for eating, drinking, fun and, of course, culinary creativity!
With a central fireplace as its main feature, the lounge offers warmth and comfort during the winter months, the perfect après-ski. In contrast, the wrap around balcony and terraces offer the opportunity to enjoy al fresco dining in the summer sun, accompanied by magnificent views over the mountains.
Experience the vivacious mountain springtime and hot lazy summers. Cycle some of most exciting itineraries in France, right on your doorstep, Manigod and the surrounding region has often featured in the Tour de France.
Swim in the stunning Lake Annecy and meander through its medieval city.
Hike amongst the spectacular Autumn colours on the numerous breath-taking trails of Manigod. Enjoy crisp winter sunshine, adventurous downhill and cross-country skiing, snow shoe trails and sledging, all completed by the proximity to Geneva for some international city life.
The chalet has been our dream all-season home and we look forward to being able to share this wonderful haven of peace and tranquillity with our guests.
