About Chalet de Rollon ...
This contemporary five-star chalet is in a quiet cul-de-sac, just a few minutes drive from the busy market town of Thônes, which has a great choice of shops, restaurants and a good weekly market. There’s also a large supermarket less than a kilometre away.
Despite being so close to the town, the chalet is surrounded by mountains, and overlooks a meadow, so peace and quiet is assured. This enviable location makes Chalet de Rollon a great choice for skiers, non skiers and summer visitors, as there is so much to see and do just a short drive away.
Or out of season why not treat yourself and come and work from the comforts of the home office instead of your normal office? The owner's love of the mountains is reflected in the framed Alpine views on the walls and each of the bedrooms is named after a famous mountaineer.
Guests at Chalet de Rollon will benefit from 10% discounts at ski/mountain shop Versant Nord, in Thônes!
The property ...
This modern mountain home sleeps 9 (8 adults and one child) in four double bedrooms, one of which has an adjoining single room. The ground floor bedroom has a double bed, en suite bathroom and access to a laundry and dressing room with a sink. This makes it a great choice for people with limited mobility, although access is not wide enough for a wheelchair.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom with an en suite shower room, and two more double bedrooms, one of which has steep stairs to a single bed under the eaves, which is suitable for a child (although not a toddler). The other double room can be arranged as a twin room. Also on this floor are a bathroom and a shower room which are linked by a sliding door, a useful tv/reading area on the landing, and a home office with a view to die for.
The bright and airy living space on the ground floor has a large modern kitchen and dining area with access to the sunny terrace, and a seating area with a large modular sofa, bench seats and a woodburning stove. The owner has chosen natural materials such as slate, wood and leather with restful neutral shades for the decor, which reflect the Alpine surroundings. Framed prints of local views will leave you keen to explore your surroundings!
The garden is screened from neighbouring properties with large shrubs so you can enjoy a session in the jacuzzi or the sauna in privacy, and the large terrace is perfect for eating al fresco.
About the area ...
Chalet de Rollon is in a great location to make the most of the winter sports offered in the Aravis ski resorts. Less than 20 minutes from the ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, 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. Parking is available at the ski stations, or use the network of ski buses, which are free with your Aravis ski pass or the Carte d’hote.
Cross-country skiers will discover a great variety of trails from nearby St-Jean-de-Sixt - pick up a map from the village tourist office.
Non-skiers are particularly well catered for at Chalet de Rollon which is an easy walk or drive from Thônes, where you will find plenty of shops and restaurants and a cinema. If you fancy exploring the mountains try snow-shoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
After a busy day, Chalet de Rollon is the perfect retreat - enjoy a jacuzzi under the night sky or curl up on the sofa for a cosy night in.
When you choose Chalet de Rollon for your summer holiday in the Alps you can enjoy the best of both worlds - mountain adventure and lakeside relaxation. The mountain resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand are less than 20 minutes away by car and you could be at the beautiful village of Menthon St Bernard on the banks of Lake Annecy in 15 minutes. Annecy itself is just a little further away.
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 Thônes, Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz, 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'd like to enjoy a holiday at Chalet de Rollon, check your dates against our availability calendar. We can old your dates for you for 24 hours if you need to finalise your plans. But don't put it off for too long - we'd hate you to be disappointed.

The OVO Network Review
“A beautiful contemporary chalet, for the perfect holiday”
The Chalet de Rollon, 2 minutes from Thônes by car is not at all a typical mountain chalet. With views across a flat meadow (!) to the mountains surrounding Thônes, and part of the village itself, this family chalet is spread over two floors with 4 double bedrooms and one single, and three bathrooms (two of them ensuite)
One of the double beds can be set up as twins instead depending on your group’s requirements. The chalet is flooded with sunlight thanks to high ceilings, and lots of windows and feels clean contemporary and spacious.
The large deck area to the rear of the chalet has the aforementioned views, a charming garden, outdoor living and eating areas and a jacuzzi for 4 people.
There are two huge dressing rooms, a pantry, a Home Office, a second TV area, and ski/bike store, so for those wishing to book stays of longer than a week, there’s room to spread out and feel at home.
Chalet de Rollon is located just a 2 minute drive from the busy town of Thônes, between Lake Annecy and the Aravis mountains. With its municipal (summer only) outdoor swimming pool, petanque courts, skate park, salle des fetes, Via Ferrata, stables, tree top adventure park, mini golf and bustling Saturday morning market, as well as restaurants, bars, supermarkets and boutiques this is a great base for all the family, wanting to explore the local area.

From the owner
We discovered Thones, a really vibrant mountain village...
We love Annecy with its old town and the lake. Two of our children have settled in Lyon.
The mountains are our playground - Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing at medium and high altitiude (The Aravis and the Mont Blanc Massif) We discovered Thones, a really vibrant mountain village with plenty of shops, services, a market and the Reblochon!
For us, Chalet de Rollon is in the perfect location. We are based in Normandy - our adopted region.
We are delighted to welcome you to our chalet, and wish you a pleasant stay."

The chalet was a good choice for us (a family of 4 adults). We were worried to make the full payment way in advance, but our worries disappeared after meeting the manager Sophie who was very helpful and supportive. The property is very well equipped and nothing was missing. We had a splendid 9 days in this wonderful place. The location is great: we had the chance to be near several attractions including a forest within a very short distance by car. Annecy is 17 Km and Geneva is not far, along with other attractions located so near. We loved it and we are willing to come back again as soon as possible. I recommend this rental without any hesitation as I am sure that it will be a memorable stay for anybody.

“High class chalet”
The Chalet was fully equipped with everything we needed and extremely comfortable. We loved the convenience of being able to walk into the village and being close to Lake Annecy. It was in a very quiet location but easily accessible to local attractions. We would suggest that for Summer visitors to the Chalet, it could benefit from having a few items to be taken to the beach at Lake Annecy ie towels, cool box and small parasol for those really hot days! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
