The OVO Network Review

Chalet Nevala is a beautifully converted stone barn in the tiny hamlet of St André, just 10km from the mountain resort of Orelle. The accommodation is set over three floors with four bedrooms and three bathrooms for up to 11 guests, and a fabulous spa area with a sauna and indoor swimming pool.

Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor - a double bedroom with a dressing area and an en suite shower room, another double with a single bunk over the bed and a room with two sets of bunk beds, these rooms share a bathroom. The fourth bedroom is the master suite on the top floor, which also has a dressing room and an en suite bathroom.

The open plan living area is also on the top floor - it has a cosy seating area, a funky suspended fireplace and steps to the well-equipped kitchen and dining area. Due to its split-level layout and the steps, this accommodation is not suitable for people with reduced mobility.

Young children will also need to be supervised carefully, especially in the pool area.

The owners of this unique property spend years carefully renovating the old barn, and the result is this incredible property, which combines the original architectural features with modern decor and treasures from Nepal, for a home that is unique, comfortable and very special. Light wells and spotlights have been used to make sure the spacious rooms are well lit, and quality soft furnishings and bed linen have been chosen to make sure you feel right at home.

You'll need a car during your stay at Chalet Nevala, and although there is only one parking space at the house (in the garage), there are plenty more around the nearby church.

If you want to be in the heart of the action, in a place where you can party the night away, Chalet Nevala is not for you. If, on the other hand, you want great skiing, walking and biking, in a peaceful location surrounded by nature, it will tick all your boxes.

Since 2023
“A magical place, all year round”

After living in New York for five years, we decided we wanted to settle in France.

We chose to return to our roots in Savoie, where our four children could get to know the family land and the mountains in all their glory.

Nathalie set up her decorating shop in the heart of Annecy, while Luc developed his business using the region's many train stations and airports.

During a trip to the Maurienne, we fell in love with a hamlet at the gateway to the Parc de la Vanoise. It had just snowed, and the houses were covered in an perfect white blanket.

There was no one around, and it seemed as if we and our four toddlers were completely alone in the world. On the way back, Luc realised that this was the village where his father was born. It was the place for us.

We began our search for the perfect property, without getting our hopes up. A month later, on a Sunday afternoon, someone called to tell us that he was selling an old, derelict barn in the middle of the hamlet. We said yes without even looking at it!

The whole place had to be renovated and redesigned. We immediately saw its enormous potential and how it could work for our large family and friends.

As the work progressed, the family project evolved into a seasonal rental project. We wanted other mountain lovers to be able to share this magical and unique place in this small hamlet that we fell in love with.

The result was this very unusual place with huge spaces, using only old materials.The old stables became home to a large indoor swimming pool. A very old door and a column from Nepal give a very "global mountain" touch to our large village house.

It's a magical place, all year round.

In winter, the new Orelle cable car, just 10 minutes away by car, provides quick access to Val Thorens and the 3 Valleys. In the evenings, the swimming pool and sauna are the perfect place to relax and unwind, ending the day with a nice dinner by the fireplace.

In summer, you can walk or cycle in the Parc de la Vanoise directly from the hamlet. Italy and Turin are less than an hour away via the Fréjus tunnel.

You can even spend a day in the Italian lakes.

In spring and autumn, you can recharge your batteries in the heart of nature with some magnificent walks.

And last but not least, it's very easy to get to. The motorway takes you to the hamlet in 10 minutes..

and the TGV station is less than 15 minutes away.

“A really nice stay!”

We really enjoyed the pool and sauna.

Even though we didn't use the heating racks for our ski shoes, it was still nice to put our gloves on them to warm them up.

We couldn't have wished for anything better.

“Magnificient stay in a splendid and peaceful Chalet”

Outstanding decoration and equipment.

A special mention for the swimming pool... a delight for the children!

After a day's skiing in Orelle, it's so good to be back with the family in an exceptional chalet.
