The OVO Network Review

The beautifully renovated Alpage du Pralor is an old farmhouse which has been split into two very smart semi detached rental properties each for 8 people, Le Nova and Le Peille. The renovation took into account that sound proofing needed to be effective, balconies have wooden barriers to give privacy, terraces are on opposite sides of the property for the same reason.

Each property has 4 ensuite bedroom and is spread over three floors. Each is a perfect base for those who value nature, space and simply stunning panoramic view.

Virtually every window is like the frame of a picture postcard! With very good quality workmanship and craftsmanship throughout the build itself, natural fabrics and colours, a hammam and an outdoor jacuzzi thrown into the mix too, each property is ideal for one or two families a group of friends, or couples. Or if you are a larger group who prefer some privacy why not rent both properties with friends and family?

The chalet stands alone at the top of a meadow with the forest behind, above a farm where you can purchase very fresh milk, cheese and butter. You will need a car to access the ski slopes and the local shops, there are some beautiful walks from the front door.

Le Nova has a terrace to the east of the property which has one of the best views over the Aravis mountains, check out the exterior photos on the site! The balconies face south. There is one bathroom with jacuzzi bath at the property.

The two hammams are accessed via the garage, bath robes are provided. If you don't want to share a garage, or parking spaces this is not the property for you.

The owners also own Veyrat Sports, one of the ski hire shops at La Croix Fry, so guests have expert advice on which skis to rent or buy on hand!

“The chalet is south-facing and so guests can enjoy the sunshine all day long, summer and winter.”

The chalet has been built on land which has been owned by the Veyrat-Durebex family for several generations. The original farm was built in 1846 and was on the verge of falling down, so we took it apart before it fell down, conserving all the original materials we could for use in the new build.

We had originally planned to build a family home on this site, but with our commitments with running our sports hire shop at La Croix Fry, Patrice taking care of the snow clearing at the Col, plus the changing needs of our two children as they grew up, we realised this was not a practical solution, so we decided to build a property which could be let to holiday-makers. We decided to honour the heritage of the site in the names we have chosen for the property.

The chalet is called L'Alpage du Pralor - "Pralor" is local patois for "Pré à l'ours" which means "field of the bear" The names of the two rental properties, Le Nova and Le Peille, reflect the traditional division of the farm houses in this region. Work began in 2013.

The side of the farm nearest to the sunrise - Le Nova - was where the animals were housed, and the other part of the house - Le Peille - was where the family lived.

We decided to build a "chalet mitoyen"- a pair of semi-detached chalets each sleeping 8, with independent access, independent terraces, plenty of parking and some of the most spectacular panoramic views in the Manigod valley. Even locals cannot help but be impressed by the incredible views.

The chalet is halfway between the ski fields and the village. It is a 4km drive to the Col de la Croix Fry, and Manigod village is 3km away, so a car is necessary, but we feel that the location is idyllic, and the short drive necessary to reach the piste or the village is more than justified by the splendid isolation of the setting on the edge of the forest leading up to the plateau at Beauregard.

The road is kept clear of snow by the commune of Manigod and by Franck the farmer, who lives in the farm just below the chalet. You may also meet his brother Nicolas, as he's the one taking care of the goats! He will surely supply you with fresh farm produce: hard and soft goat's cheese such as chevre and chevrotin, Tomme, reblochon, fresh butter and milk.

Throughout the year, the walking trails of Le Petit Novard, Colomban and Beauregard can be reached from the front door, whether you are walking, jogging or on snow shoes, and because the chalet is surrounded on three sides by mountain pasture, away from busy roads, it is an amazing playground and provides fantastic sledging for children of all ages. The chalet is south-facing and so guests can enjoy the sunshine all day long, summer and winter.

If you stay at the alpage you get the best of both worlds!

We'll be happy to welcome you in our sports shop Veyrat Sports located at Manigod-Croix Fry where we will keep a parking space for you on request, right at the bottom of the ski slopes. All year round we'll be available to advise you on ski and mountain sports equipment.
