This contemporary chalet for 14 guests is in the centre of Verchaix, a traditional village in the Grand Massif ski area. It's a great choice if you're looking for a peaceful area to return to at the end of the day, but would like easy access to great skiing, hiking and biking.
It's a great year-round destination, and with the ski bus passing your door and the Morillon ski lift just 1km away, Chalet des Hottes is perfectly placed to take advantage of everything this beautiful area has to offer. In the summer, there are great walks in the area, tennis courts across the road and a beautiful lake within walking distance.
There are bars, restaurants and a small supermarket in Morillon, just a short walk across the Giffre river.
Chalet des Hottes was renovated to a high standard in 2022 and now offers a luxury base for a group of family or friends, with a hot tub, sauna, sunny terrace and plenty of living space for 14 guests.
About the property ...
Accommodation at Chalet des Hottes is set over three main floors, with a basement sauna.
You'll enter on the ground floor - stairs lead down to the sauna area, the perfect place to unwind after an active day in the mountains. The main open-plan living area has a well-equipped kitchen at one end, and a large dining and seating area separated by a central wood-burning stove.
A huge L-shaped sofa is the perfect place to gather at the end of a busy day, and the dining table is sure to be the scene of some great sociable meals. This cosy timber-clad room has two sets of patio doors which open on to the hot tub terrace and the large garden - great for barbecues in the summer and a bit of star-gazing on clear winter nights.
There's a games and TV room on this floor with another dining table, ideal for serving up children's suppers before bed.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor. Children will love the bunk room, which has two single beds, a set of bunk beds and an en suite shower room with WC. The master bedroom has a double bed, a dressing room and an en suite shower room with WC. There are two more double bedrooms on this floor, which share a shower room with WC.
The family suite, on the top floor, has a twin bedroom and a double room which share a shower room and WC. It's a great area for a family who would like a degree of privacy, although head room is limited in some areas. All of the shower rooms are beautifully appointed.
Chalet des Hottes has a sunny furnished terrace with a hot tub, and a large flat garden where children can play safely. There's parking for up to four cars at the front of the chalet.
Please note the ground floor and first floor are underfloor heated, the roof space is heated by radiators.
About the area ...
Whether you're visiting in summer or winter, you'll never be short of something to do at Chalet Les Hottes.
The chalet is just 1km from the telecabine at Morillon, and just 6km from the ski resort of Samoens - there's actually a lovely riverside walk (5km). The lifts connect with the Grand Massif resorts of Sixt, Flaine and Les Carroz, giving you easy access to over 250km of great skiing, with plenty of challenge for all abilities. Snowfall is regular and abundant, and there are three jam parks for freestylers.
There are restaurants and shops in Morillon, and a greater choice in Samoens, which has a delightful square where you can enjoy a long lazy lunch in the summer, or just grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Many skiers also stop in Samoens for lunch, before heading back up into the mountains.
In the summer, there's great hiking and biking in the mountains, as well as watersports on the Giffre river. The Lac Bleu leisure area, an easy walk from Chalet des Hottes, is a great day out for families - there's a beach area for swimming as well as horse-riding, treetop adventure area, Segway, electric skateboards and much more. Youngsters can enjoy the pump track, play areas, inflatables and trampolines, and trout fishing is free for those staying in the area.
The village of Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, less than 20 minutes drive away, is also worth a visit - one of the most beautiful villages in France, it's set in a natural amphitheatre of high limestone cliffs. It's also the start of some great white-water rafting and home to a via ferrata course.

The OVO Network Review
“Quiet village location close to great skiing and walking”
Chalet des Hottes is a three-storey chalet with a basement sauna, six bedrooms and four bathrooms in the delightful village of Verchaix, near Samoens.
It's a modern chalet which has been beautifully renovated by its current owners, providing a high level of comfort. We love the spacious sauna, and the hot tub the sunny terrace, as well as the fact that there are two separate living areas - these can be used by family groups or perhaps you'd prefer to keep one for the children and one for the adults!
The six bedrooms are well distributed across two floors, with a family suite with its own shower room under the eaves. Four more bedrooms are on the first floor - two doubles which share a shower room, a master suite with a dressing room and en suite shower and a bunk room for four with its own shower room.
The garden is large, flat and enclosed, making it perfect for children to play safely, while adults supervise from the hot tub or the sunny furnished terrace.
Verchaix is a beautifully tranquil village, with more facilities available just a short walk across the river in Morillon. The chalet is set on the main road, making access easy, and traffic noise is not noticeable inside the chalet.
If you'd rather not drive while you are here, a bus stops outside the chalet, connecting you with Morillon and Samoens.

From the owner
"The perfect place to spend time with family and friends"
My wife “Joelle” and I first visited the beautiful Verchaix and Samoen’s area with our two boys some years back. The whole area offered the perfect place to spend time with family and friends.
It didn’t take long for us to decide that we wanted to spend more time to explore the area and enjoy more fun packed adventures.
This area has so much for people of all ages to do in both the summer and colder winter months.
As keen outdoorsy people we decided to find a place to renovate and call it our own. In August 2019 we purchased this old railway station house and set about trying to bring it back to life.
Eventually we finished our renovation in 2021 and started to enjoy many more family holidays.
We have renovated the property and garden to a very high standard and also fully internally wrapped the building and have provided underfloor heating to ensure its also warm and have fitted it with all new furniture and all mod cons.
We hope all our guests love staying there as much as we do.
