The OVO Network Review

Chalet La Chandelle is a three-storey property for up to 12 guests. It's situated in Bionnassay, a small village above the busy resort of Saint-Gervais (8km), but you'll feel as if you're in the middle of nowhere!

There are four bedrooms - three double rooms which can each be arranged with a kingsize bed or two single beds. Two of these rooms are on the ground floor and have en-suite shower rooms, whereas the third is on the first floor, and has a large bathroom with a bath, shower and WC.

This room also has doors to the terrace - a great place for your morning coffee!

The final room is a bunk room with four double bunk beds, each of which can be closed off with bright checked curtains - it's the perfect place for children to enjoy a sleepover every night. There is also a separate shower room with two showers and a separate WC.

There are two more double beds and a single bed on the mezzanine floor, but only one double bed is included in the capacity of the chalet (12) The rest of the area is a great place for older children to hang out - there's a piano, board games and seating.

There's also a home office with four work stations and great views of Mont Joly, making Chalet La Chandelle a great choice for remote working.

The open-plan living area on the first floor has a well-equipped kitchen with a large range cooker. The large dining table overlooks the terrace and the garden beyond, and there's a cosy sitting area with a wood fire.

The furnished terrace has a dining table, a barbecue and a pizza oven, and there are several places where you can sit in the garden and admire the views - why not light the fire pit and make a night of it!

The chalet enjoys a secluded position at the end of a 200m track, just off a communal road. Although the communal road is cleared of snow daily in the winter, it might be difficult to access after heavy snow.

The owners have two 4x4 cars which they rent out - please check at the time of booking if you would like to use these.

Groups of more than 10 people can book Chalet La Chandelle with the Grand Mazot La Chandelle (2-4 guests) and/or the Petit Mazot La Chandelle (two guests), giving a total capacity of up to 16 guests.

From the owner


Emmanuelle & Stephane

Since 2024
“Experience something both intense and rejuvenating here, so close and yet so far from civilization”

We love beautiful, inspiring places with a soulful quality. We fell in love with this chalet and its two mazots, which we completely renovated between 2021 and 2023 - the joy of working as an architect on your own home - to bring out the beauty of wood and stone in this very special natural setting.

The last hamlet in the village of Bionnassay, at an altitude of 1,400 metres, in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif, La Chandelle is in a nature reserve, facing the Goûter dome and its famous refuge, the last stop for mountaineers on their ascent to Mont Blanc. At nightfall, you can watch from the terrace as the climbers stream up the mountain in search of the summit, lighting up the slopes with their many lights.

It's a spectacle that plunges us into a deep reverie.

We love contrasts (going from the hectic atmosphere of a big city to the absolute silence of the mountains), so we'd like you to enjoy this magical experience of disconnection and immersion in nature at La Chandelle, just a few minutes from the St Gervais le Fayet TGV station.

Whether you are meditating in front of the Aiguille de Bioassay hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing around the chalet, heading to the ski resorts of Megève or St Gervais, or watching the deer with a telescope in the autumn, you will experience something both intense and rejuvenating here. So close and yet so far from civilization.
