About the property ...
Mountain style and modern convenience blend seamlessly at Les Roses des Alpes, where personal touches make this a real home from home.
The chalet sleeps eight adults in four double bedrooms, three of which can be set up as twin rooms. All have high quality pocket-sprung mattresses. Two of the bedrooms open on to a sunny balcony, and there are two bathrooms.
There is a second balcony on the ground floor, ideal for sunny breakfasts, and a large South-facing terrace with jacuzzi leading on to a large flat garden with petanque course. The well-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar, so there’s no need for the cook to feel isolated, while there’s plenty of room for everyone around the dining table.
When it’s cold outside, the best place to be is gathered around the log fire, though hardier types can always grab a blanket and a glass of mulled wine and enjoy star-gazing from the terrace.
About the area ...
Les Roses des Alpes is just off the main road to Manigod/Croix Fry, a less-crowded access point to the Aravis ski area with it’s 220km of snow-sure pistes to suit all abilities.
There’s also a great choice of cross-country ski, snow-shoe and walking trails. For the ultimate in winter fun, try dog-sledding, paragliding on skis, horse-drawn sleigh rides or ski joering-skiing while being towed by a horse!

It provides secure bike storage and a fully-equipped workshop for repairs and maintenance.

The OVO Network Review
“Great access to lakes and mountains”
Chalet les Roses des Alpes sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms with two bathroom. Its location in Thônes, between Lake Annecy and the mountains, means you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
You'll need a car when you stay here, but great roads mean it's easy to get around.
The chalet takes up the top two floors of this modern chalet, while the owners live in the basement.
However they have their own access.
One of the bedrooms has a double bed whereas the other three can be set up with twin beds or a kingsize bed, giving you great options for groups of family or friends. The light, bright open-plan living room opens on to a sunny terrace with a hot tub and a flat garden, which is perfect for children's games.
There are swings and a pétanque court too.
On colder winter nights you may prefer to get together around the fire or enjoy a meal prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.
This charming chalet is a great practical choice for a group who want to make the most of this beautiful area, but want to return to a peaceful haven at the end of the day.

From the owner
... a wonderful introduction to the amazing diversity of this part of the Haute Savoie.
After several skiing holidays together in the French and Austrian Alps, we came up with the idea of living here and moved in June 2017. My brother and sister-in-law have a lovely house on the edge of Lake Annecy, and our visits there gave us a wonderful introduction to the amazing diversity of this part of the Haute Savoie.
Thones is the perfect location to enjoy the best of both worlds, with Annecy and the turquoise waters of the lake on our doorstep and all they offer, especially in the summer. In the winter, we are just a short drive from the excellent ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
Although we both share a love of the mountains and the outdoor lifestyle our backgrounds are very different. Peter’s career was in interior design, whereas mine was in the training of racehorses.
I have a teenage daughter, Millie, who lives with her mum in the UK, but who is sure to be a regular visitor at Chalet les Roses! We have many long-term plans for developing the chalet, and improving the gardens. This has the luxury of a sizeable flat lawn (a rarity in mountain chalets!), perfect for creating a leisure area for both children and adults!

“Fantastic location, excellent facilities, wonderful hosts”
David, Peter and Siena were friendly, helpful and informative. The Chalet has been beautifully designed with every facility one might need. The British tv was a plus (not that we had time to watch it). The hot tub was a perfect star gazing spot. A great venue for a family or group of friends. I am sure we will return.

“Beautiful chalet, stunning view, warm welcome”
When we arrived, it was a great surprise to see this beautiful chalet, a stunning view and a warm welcome. We had a week's holiday that will be forever etched in our minds and hearts. The children loved it and so did our dog who ran around in the big garden. A pure happiness to be with family. A big thank you to David, the owner, for his welcome and his kindness. We will never forget this beautiful holiday in your magnificent chalet and region.

Lovely chalet just an easy short drive from Thônes. Village walkable within 15/20 minutes. Thônes has several good local supermarkets and restaurants. Chalet has great facilities with super comfy beds, fabulous views and a wonderful hot tub. David our host couldn’t have been nicer and very professional. Went over and above when one of our party needed a dentist to ensure a local appointment was found quickly. We highly recommend for local skiing, walking or just relaxing. Plenty to do in nearby village and Annecy.
— William Baacke B. Feb 2020
“A perfect holiday on every level”

“It just felt like home!”
It was very well equipped and very clean. The little things made such a difference. Interesting books on the shelf, herbs and spices in the cupboards, comfortable beds.

My family and I cannot recommend this chalet enough...except we want to keep it secret for ourselves!

“Great chalet, great stay!”
Great location and views! And the chalet is just at the right distance from Annecy.
— Richard W. Jul 2018
The chalet has everything you could possibly need or want - from super , light and airy rooms ( with lovely views ) to the thought that has gone into providing all of the things you might need: basic household cleaning items , hairdryers , towels for the hot-tub , plus kitchen essentials etc. And then there's the added bonus of having your own dog for a week: Sophia is such a calm and friendly dog .David the on-site owner is friendly and helpful , but not obtrusive at all .The local town of Thônes is perfect for all essential shopping , and has cafes and restaurants too.We swam in Lake Annecy at Angon beach (with grassy areas, trees for shelter, a river , cafe/bar and changing facilities), visited Annecy itself, plus Chamonix (up in the cablecars) and La Clusaz (up 2 chairlifts to 2000m). Everywhere is clean and the people very friendly .Highly recommend this chalet - it is perfect!!!
— Martin B. Jun 2018
“Suitable for any type of break you want to have!”
A very well appointed and equipped accommodation, which is located in a stunning location with a view from virtually every window. Suitable for pretty much any type of break you want to have due to the location. Peace and quiet of a rural location, yet only a few km from Thônes centre which pretty much has most of what you would need. Annecy is half an hours drive. Winter rentals are well catered for with Chamonix, La Clusaz and others close by. David the owner is rightly proud of the holiday let and is happy to advise on any aspect of the rental and the local surroundings, all in a great find. We would be very happy to return when in the area again!
— Barry G. Jun 2018
“A fantastic chalet with every comfort”

“An extraordinary holiday in a haven of peace”
We had a lovely family stay in this beautiful, comfortable chalet, where everything was perfect. Thank you to David for his welcome (despite our late arrival), his help and his kindness. We were all delighted by our week's stay, both young and old and even our dog Lindt, who will not forget her cousin Sofia! We were abel to ski (at Manigod and La Clusaz), go snow-shoe walking, visit Annecy ... And we relaxed in front of the fire and in the Jacuzzi. We were enchanted by the property, and the area, which we discovered for the first time The chalet is really spacious (there were five of us and the dog), clean, practical, very pleasant and in a quiet location. We loved the Savoyard town of Thônes, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The friendly ski station of Manigod is also nearby, as well as La Clusaz and Annecy. We strongly recommend bringing a car for getting around and for shopping (remember to use snow tires or chains in winter because the roads are snowy). David gave us good advice in this respect when we arrived.
— Angelique P. Mar 2018
