The OVO Network Review

We're very excited about this property! It is packed full of extra facilities, such as a Home Cinema, a Swim Jacuzzi, a Sauna, and a Bar, close to St Jean de Sixt (and therefore to La Clusaz or Grand Bornand) for skiing and snow rleated activities , and to Thônes , as well as St Jean de Sixt for shopping.

Guests will be spoilt for choice as to what to look at, and what to do do first!

Obviously the chalet is not on the piste, but if you are looking for a chalet away from resort, then Chalet Gran Shan could be the perfect place for you and your group.

“It was our dream to buy an old Savoyard farm in this area, where we have lots of friends.”

"It was our dream to buy an old Savoyard farm in this area, where we have lots of friends. We chanced upon this farm, which had not been lived in since the 80's.

So we started major renovation work, to restore the whole building, inside and out. We spent literally hundreds of hours sanding and brushing the old wood to bring out the grain and to make it look its best.

We really wanted to keep the character of the chalet, while making it as comfortable and spacious as possible, so that we could welcome our family and friends and share some good times.

The name,La Ferme du Gran Shan was a natural choice for us - it means big field in Savoyard patois.

We look forward to welcoming you here very soon!"

Wonderful house.

“A perfect family retreat”

We had a wonderful two weeks at Gran Shan - our second visit, and this time was even better. It is a beautiful chalet with excellent and well-considered facilities. Sophie is always happy to help with any questions. It is the perfect retreat for our family holiday.

“Stunning location, beautiful house!”

Stunning location, beautiful house. We were 8 people, 4 adults and 4 children and there was ample space for all of us and room for more. The hot tub/spa was at 35degrees C, perfect for little kids who loved being in it. The view is impossible to capture in a photo and will knock your socks off. Beds comfy, showers great (no bathtub). There are several one star reviews on GMaps for this place and that was clearly a different era - it was a perfect stay and we were all sad to leave. Sophie the host was so helpful and easy to communicate with, and assisted us with a small medical issue. Really, one of the most special Airbnb's we've stayed in. Go here.
