About Chalet Colombine ...
Always a favourite with OVO Network guests, Chalet Colombine has now been beautifully renovated and extended by its new owners to offer even more!
This refurbished 5 star farm, which was built in 1850, now sleeps up to 20 people in seven bedrooms with seven bathrooms. It also has a private cinema and a fabulous indoor swimming pool (5mx3mx1.5m) with a relaxation area and its own film screen!
Situated in Les Villards-sur-Thônes, the chalet is a two-minute drive from the main road between St-Jean-de-Sixt and Thônes, and from a large supermarket. The ski resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand are both just five minutes drive from St-Jean-de-Sixt, so you've got great skiing in both directions. You will need a car, and there are four parking spaces outside the chalet.
When you stay at Chalet Colombine you've got the best of all worlds, winter and summer, as the chalet is in the mountains and yet within a 30 minute drive of the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy.
Children will love the bedroom on the attic floor – a dormitory-style room with eight built-in bunks and a TV corner. It's like having a sleepover every night!
On the ground floor there's a double bedroom and bathroom as well as the main open plan living area. There's a sleek kitchen, utility room, and two dining areas - children have their own dining corner and there's also a huge bespoke dining table that seats up to 20 guests. Set in front of the stunning view, it's the perfect setting for a celebration meal. The room opens on to a furnished terrace with a fire pit, and another terrace with a hot tub runs the length of the property. There is a further furnished stone terrace as you arrive at the property, so you can always find a place in the sun, whatever the time of day.
The main sitting area is perfect for cosy nights in front of the fire, but perhaps the most exciting feature is the glass panel in the floor, from which you can see the indoor swimming pool and lounge area on the floor below! There's a separate seating area, with a bar and TV, is a great space for a relaxed evening, or you could enjoy a bit of a tournament at the ping pong table.
The lower floor is also home to the sauna, where you can relax after a busy day in the mountains. Upstairs there's another sitting area, a games room with pool table and a juke box which you can play from your phone or tablet. Off this room is a luxurious private cinema with reclining seats and there's another play area on the landing. This floor is also home to five of the bedrooms, four of which are en suite, and a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have French and English power sockets as well as USB points - vital for charging phones, tablets and laptops.
The most recent addition is a ski room with heated boot rack and changing room near the jacuzzi. A laundry room has also been added.
The chalet is decorated throughout in classy neutral shades, with lots of throws and cushions, making it a great place to relax at the end of a busy day. The new owners have done a fantastic job renovating this popular chalet, so if it's the one for you, don't miss your chance to book it!
About the area ...
You couldn’t chose a more perfect location to make the most of the La Clusaz slopes.
Halfway between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand ski resorts, you can ski somewhere new every day.Your Aravis ski pass also covers the Manigod area, giving you 220km of pistes of varying levels to explore, as well as extensive off-piste action.
Cross-country skiers will discover trails from St-Jean-de-Sixt - pick up a map from the village tourist office. Non-skiers are well catered for too, and can go ice skating or swimming in La Clusaz, where the heated indoor and outdoor pools are open all year round, or try snowshoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
There's just as much to do in the spring and summer at Chalet Colombine. The village of St-Jean-de-Sixt, just minutes from the chalet, is one of the few places where you can try Bun-J ride, a cross between ski jumping and bungee jumping! Other more traditional pastimes are available too - marked footpaths crisscross the mountains, or you can explore by mountain bike or on horseback.
There are indoor and outdoor swimming pool complexes in Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Thônes, or if you're looking for something a little more challenging, there are climbing schools, via ferrata routes, tree-top adventure parks, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.
If you would prefer to relax at the chalet, the landscaped gardens are the perfect place, with a large deck, and a seating area with a fire pit and jacuzzi. There is also a boules piste for those with a little more energy!

The OVO Network Review
“There's renovation, then there's regeneration!”
Chalet Colombine is a 7 bedroom , 6 bathroom chalet for 20 with 400m2 of space spread over 4 floors.
Chalet Colombine has been completely renovated since it was purchased, indoors and out - really the best way to appreciate this amazing project in a traditional Savoyard farmhouse is to check out the photography. The floor plans and video will help put the rooms, features and too numerous to mention luxurious facilities and features into context floor by floor.
Don't just take our word for it, the guest reviews tell the story from a guests point of view. The chalet lacks for nothing, this unusual property is packed full of personality and surprises.
The beds are comfortable, linens, towels, tableware and glassware of good quality, the owners and their design team have thought of everything. The chalet is a complete oasis indoors and out.
It's a great base for multigenerational families, several families or groups of friends, for celebrations, for self indulgence, for relaxation. No matter what the occasion, Chalet Colombine will be the setting for some very special memories.
The situation of the property above the main road up to La Clusaz/Grand Bornand ensures good access to the local mountains and villages all year round. Vehicles must be properly equipped for the snow in winter.
Annecy with its beautiful lake and the canalised old town, and Geneva, are both within an hour's drive, so good obvious choices for day trips, if you feel the need to leave this fabulous chalet.

From the owner
The chalet's unique character made us fall in love with it instantly...
Being based overseas, when we first decided to look for our perfect family chalet in the French Alps, location and proximity to an airport was the first logical step. The second step was to combine prime location with charm and tranquility. Chalet Colombine offers exactly that.
Just one hour's drive away from Geneva airport, it sits proudly and quietly on a hillside only 10 minutes from the renowned ski resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand and a smooth 20 minute-downhill drive to the edge of the pristine waters of lake Annecy.
Knowing that it ticked all the boxes location wise was a must for our family, but it was the chalet's unique character that made us fall in love with it instantly. The rustic facade opens up to an even warmer and cosier interior.
Our first stay in the chalet in March 2015 confirmed our first impression, that its size would easily accommodate three families and still provide a feeling of individual privacy and personal space. The sports addicts headed up to the slopes while the lazier ones enjoyed the jacuzzi, sauna or quite simply a good read by the fireplace.
It became clear to us that Chalet Colombine offers a true home away from home, where we will undoubtedly create lasting memories with our young ones as they grow up spending their summers hiking in the mountain range, sailing on the lake and their winters inviting their friends to enjoy all the thrills these snowy mountains have to offer.
Renovation project:It was always our goal to find a property with the right potential for expansion to accommodate our growing family as well as our friends while offering all the amenities we could possibly dream of. Who says you can't have an authentic chalet with room for 18 people, a heated swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, a billiards room and a home cinema? Well our dream has finally come true ! Come and indulge in your private 5 star chalet experience!!
We can't wait to share it with you!

“We never tire of Colombine”
It's always a pleasure to spend a week at Colombine. We always leave this place with a heavy heart after a week with the whole family. It's not easy to find a place for a holiday with such a large family. Thanks to Chris, our dream has come true for several years. Despite the size of our party, there is plenty of room for all of us, whether you want to spend time in a quiet corner by the fire, or with others in the swimming pool, playing billiards, in the cinema or the hot tub, come to Colombine. The kids are beside themselves when they know we are going to Colombine - it's a really lovely, relaxing place. We are already looking forward to our next holiday there. We'd like to thank Chris the owner for giving us the opportunity to have unforgettable family holidays, and Janelle the manager and Sylvie from OVO Network for their help and kindness.

“A marvellous chalet!”
We had everything we needed and we really enjoyed this superb chalet. Thanks to the owners for sharing this little piece of paradise!
— Didier D. Sep 2018
I was lucky enough to have a long weekend at this chalet. I have stayed in many properties over the years and this one was spectacular. The view was to die for, rooms very comfortable, quirky extras such as sunken fire-pit with outdoor seating, all added to a place you would want to come back to again and again. Comfortable, beautifully decorated, spacious and had all the extras one would expect. I hope to return.

“We felt we had died and gone to heaven”
We loved Chalet Colombine and would love to return. We stayed for a week in february. After a hard days skiing, the wonderful facilities were very well appreciated by the adults and children, including the pool, hot tub, sauna, fire pit and cinema. We have never stayed somewhere where there was so much to do for both adults and children and we would definitely recommend this to others. It made our holiday truly special as we felt we had died and gone to heaven staying there. The top bedroom was brilliant for the children. We loved the hot tub and spent every evening in it and the children loved the pool. The cinema room was a real gem, and both adults and children enjoyed the range of DVDs that had been left. We loved the games room and especially the pool table, which kept the 'boys' entertained. The kitchen had a lot of space for food and a lot of glasses and plates which was great. It had a lovely sense of luxury about the whole place and the fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard. This is an area that we love and have visited 5 times, and it was quiet, yet 10 minutes drive takes you to the busy villages which we love.
— Paul M. Feb 2017
“A great family holiday we will never forget.”
We all had an amazing time and the children loved the pool. The chalet is in a good location, close to the shops and ski slopes. A great family holiday we will never forget. We've been regular visitors to this area for the past 11 years!
— Mark C. Feb 2017
Despite the lack of snow, we had a magnificent stay in this chalet. The extraordinary facilities delighted us all, young and old. The manager Janelle was perfect, and helped to make our holiday so wonderful.
— Jerome L. Dec 2016
“This holiday was fabulous”
We spent a long weekend with the family and the memories will stay with us for a long time. This holiday was fabulous. The chalet is perfectly designed for one or more families with children. The swimming pool, the games room, the bedrooms, the children's bunk room, the outside jacuzzi, the home cinema ... everything was perfect and well designed. The chalet is very tastefully and well planned.
— Sandrine M. Nov 2016
“Not enough time to enjoy everything!”
We had a great holiday to celebrate a friend's birthday - everyone loved the area. Two things totally charmed me - The pool room with the fireplace and English pub atmosphere and above all, the swimming pool with the glass ceiling to the living room so that you can look down. We had planned a smartly dressed party and ended up spending three days in our swimming costumes! From the jacuzzi there is a great view of Mont Lachat. I absolutely recommend this chalet! Three days wasn't enough to make the most of everything it has to offer.
