This superb modern chalet is just a few minutes away from the busy market town of Thônes, which has a good range of shops and restaurants. There is also a large supermarket less than a kilometre away.
The chalet is in a peaceful location, close to the medieval lakeside town of Annecy as well as the ski stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod, making it a great choice for year round holidays. After a day walking, skiing or exploring, the large sauna is a great way to unwind.
The chalet sleeps up to 12 people (10 adults) and with several seating areas, there's plenty of space for everyone.
About the property...
The well-planned accommodation at Chalet Mollamax is set out over three floors.
The main living area is on the ground floor - there's a large open plan space with a comfortable seating area around a television and a wood-burning stove as well as a dining area big enough for everyone and a fully-equipped kitchen with an island breakfast bar. Doors open from the dining area on to a sunny furnished terrace - why not start your meal with an apero as you take in the mountain views? There's also a great TV and games room as well as a double bunk room for four and a shower room with a separate toilet.
The remaining four bedrooms are on the first floor - there are two double bedrooms with their own shower rooms, another double room and a spacious master bedroom with a sofa, where you can curl up with a book. There's also a good-sized bathroom on this floor, a separate toilet and a landing seating area with a games console.
After a day exploring the mountains, the sauna on the ground floor is the perfect place to unwind - there's room for eight people. There's also some gym equipment on this floor and a useful laundry room.
Chalet Mollamax also has a garden surrounded by a hedge, and a garage with room to store bikes, etc.
About the area...
Chalet Mollamax 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’hôte.
Cross-country skiers can explore 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 Mollamax, 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.
When you choose Chalet Mollamax 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 are already imagining yourself staying at Chalet Mollamax, why not check your dates against our availability calendar, and get booked in? We can hold a booking for 24 hours, giving you a little time to think about it.
But don't leave it too long, we're sure this chalet will be very popular with guests of OVO Network.

The OVO Network Review
“A great starting point for Alpine explorers!”
Chalet Mollamax is a spacious contemporary chalet for 12 people, with accommodation set over three floors.
Located close to the busy market town of Thônes, and a short drive from the mountain resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, it's a great choice for a large group who want to explore all the sports and recreation facilities that this stunning region has to offer. You'll need a car to make the most of your holiday, but access to Chalet Mollamax is easy and in the winter, roads are kept clear of snow.
The various seating areas make this property perfect for a group with teenage or young children - as well as the main living area, there's a cosy TV room on the ground floor, as well as an extra seating area on the upper floor with a television. Younger children will also love the double bunk room - a space they can really call their own.
The house is full of light, and enjoys great views over the mountains, and the enclosed garden with its sunny terrace is the perfect place to enjoy them. But if you can drag yourself away from this lovely home, there's plenty more to do within easy reach - Thônes has a lovely outdoor swimming pool (sumer only), as well as petanque courts, a skate park, via ferrata, horse riding, a tree-top adventure park, mini golf and a busy Saturday morning market. There's also a wide choice of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops.
A little further on, the medieval lakeside city of Annecy is a great day out. Explore the narrow streets with unique shops, the canalside restaurants and antique markets, or take a cruise across the lake to one of the many villages on its shores. The lake also offers a variety of waterspouts as well as several beaches and walking or cycling trails.

From the Owner
We fell in love with the area!
Some years ago, we were on a road trip heading down towards Tuscany and stopped near Thones for an overnight stay en route. We enjoyed that first evening here so much that after just a couple of days in Italy we decided to head back to the Aravis for the rest of our holiday. We fell in love with the area and it soon became a regular destination for us whenever we could get away. A few years on and we had stayed in a number of places nearby from Annecy to La Clusaz.
We loved it so much here that we decided to buy Chalet Mollamax. It is perfectly situated to get sunshine from sunrise until sunset. It’s peaceful and private yet has all the amenities nearby that we were looking for. It’s a short drive to Annecy or ski slopes at La Clusaz, St Jean de Sixt, Beauregard and Le Grand Bornand.
We like to cycle and hike a lot and this is the perfect spot to set off from the doorstep with the nearby climbs of Col de la Croix Fry, Col des Aravis and Col de la Colombière all used in the Tour de France a number of times. For us, the Chalet and location is perfect.
A charming French market town, set in the heart of Reblochon country, Thônes offers a perfect mountain escape. Close to the ski resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, winter sports enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with world class skiing, snowboarding and more.
In summer you’ll find a huge choice of activities, including walking, mountain biking, tennis, swimming, canyoning and much more, while beautiful Annecy is just 20 minutes away.
