About Chalet Cristal des Neiges ...
Five star Chalet Cristal des Neiges has been completely renovated to provide all the comforts of modern living but without losing the charm of a traditional Savoyard chalet.
Set in the tranquil Gotty area of La Clusaz, it's the perfect choice if you want to be close to all the Alpine action, but still enjoy a peaceful location. With spectacular views over the mountains, you're less than 4km from the centre of the resort and just 100m from the nearest green run to the ski lift and ski school.
The traditional village of La Clusaz is just a short drive away, and offers a good range of shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife, as well as markets where you can pick up delicious local produce.
The property ...
This charming chalet sleeps 10 people in five bedrooms with four bathrooms.
The light and airy living area is on the ground floor, where you can relax on the sofas around an open fire or enjoy dinner together at the large dining table. A bar connects the well-equipped kitchen to the rest of the living area so if it's your turn to cook, you won't miss anything!
This area opens on to the terrace and balcony, which runs around two sides of the chalet to make the most of the sunshine throughout the day. The views are spectacular, and there's a lovely barbecue area too, so that you can eat outside in good weather. At the opposite end of the balcony is the jacuzzi - the perfect place to relax after a busy day. There's a shower room and separate toilet on this floor too.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom and two cosy twin rooms under the eaves. These rooms share a stylish shower room. There are a further two double en suite bedrooms in the basement, where you'll also find a really useful ski store, lots of hanging space and a laundry and drying room.
Everything has been designed to make sure your holiday runs as smoothly as possible, so all you have to do is enjoy yourselves!
About the area ...
When you stay at Chalet Cristal des Neiges there's a great choice of winter sports minutes from your doorstep. The chalet sits just 100m from a green piste which will take you down to the telecabine and ski school.
There are nursery slopes and gentle blues on Beauregard and more experienced skiers and boarders will find plenty of challenge at La Balme. There are plenty of cross-country trails, particularly on the Beauregard plateau, and you can pick up a map from the tourist office in La Clusaz.
Non-skiers can try the ice rink in La Clusaz, go to the cinema, or try sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides. If you're looking for the ultimate in relaxation, let your cares float away in the heated outdoor pool at La Clusaz, while the snow falls gently around you.
In the summer, there's no time to be bored when you spend your holiday at Chalet Cristal des Neiges.
When the snow melts, the pistes are transformed into lush pastures criss-crossed by hiking and biking trails. Take a hike into the Col des Aravis, or to the base of the via ferrata from the front door, and you may spot chamois or marmottes.
Enjoy the magnificent views across to the Mont Blanc chain from various points along the Col. If you don't fancy the long climb, some parts of the ski lift system open on particular days across the summer to ferry you and your bike into the mountains of La Clusaz or Merdassier, then you can descend at your own pace. Please check with the Tourist Office for up to date info on which lifts are open and when.
You can hire donkeys from a farm on the Col des Aravis for a day's trekking, or try horse-riding, climbing, and paragliding.
Just 35 minutes away, the medieval city of Annecy offers a great choice of shops, restaurants, galleries and museums, as well as swimming, boating, golf and watersports in the cleanest lake in Europe. At the end of the day, relax over a meal in a local restaurant, or perhaps a barbecue and a glass of wine on the terrace of your chalet as the sun sinks behind the peaks.
If Chalet Cristal des Neiges sounds like the perfect place to spend your holiday, check your dates against our calendar - we can hold them for you for 24 hours if you need a little time. But don't wait too long - this property is getting booked up quickly!

A traditional and welcoming chalet, with a breathtaking view of the Aravis mountains
This chalet has a story. Built by my father in 1974, he called it Cristal des Neiges. In 2013, I decided to renovate my childhood home to give it a new lease of life, while keeping its mountain spirit, mixing old wood and local stone.
The chalet is ideally situated, with a breathtaking view of the Aravis mountains and Etale. The green run linking Etale to La Clusaz, where you'll find the ice rink, ski schools and the Beauregard and La Clusaz telecabine, is just 100m below the chalet.
You'll be staying in a traditional and welcoming chalet, and are sure to enjoy a pleasant, relaxing and unforgettable holiday with family or friends.

A super holiday with our children and grandchildren. The chalet is well-equipped and has a beautiful view. We really loved the space, the equipment, the view and the hot tub. We fell in love with the charming town of Annecy. Everyone was very happy. We will be back!

“An exceptional chalet!”
An excellent holiday in this very well-equipped and comfortable chalet. A magnificent view over the Aravis mountains - one of our best rentals in La Clusaz. We loved the comfort, the equipment and the huge living area. Care was needed on the stairs with young children.

“As impeccable as ever!”
We have just stayed at Cristal des Neiges for the second time: it is a lovely chalet, very comfortable and great having the 2 lots of bedrooms separated by the living area floor. As we have come to expect from OVO Network, the property was of an impeccable standard and a special thanks to the concierge and the housekeeper Virginie for the presentation on our arrival. La Clusaz was as lovely as ever and the weather amazing. We have found over the last 3 years that OVO Network is a terrifically well run company and would always use them if travelling to this area.

... and probably not the last one ! Keep doing what you are doing, we loved it all: the beauty of the area, the bottle that was waiting for us in the fridge ... And we have fallen in love with La Clusaz!
Dimitri W. - 27/08/2016
“A large and well-designed chalet. ”
Beautiful decor and a style we loved. The view is magnificent. Bonuses included the coffee machine, the luxury of having several bathrooms and the ability to park the cars side by side.
Cécile F. - 20/02/2016
“A good holiday at this chalet. ”
The pluses were the well-equipped kitchen, the very comfortable bedrooms, beautiful bathrooms, fireplace and wood and of course the jacuzzi!
Carole G. - 23/01/2016
Stunning views. Good layout.
Anthony M. - 26/12/2015
“Well designed for large groups”
This is a lovely Chalet in a quiet and attractive area just outside of the main village. Car highly recommended but not essential. The chalet itself is well designed for large family groups or friends with children and is brilliantly equipped to make the stay comfortable.
Stewart W. - 19/12/2015
This is our fifth time in La Clusaz! This chalet is magnificent.
Dimitri W. - 22/08/2015
Very beautiful and spacious renovated chalet, with all comfort and equipment needed for a great family holiday. Splendid weather and fantastic surroundings. We loved La Clusaz, Annecy Lake and the entire area.
Dominique W. - 11/07/2015
Thanks to the resort map provided, we found our destination easily. The chalet was just like the pictures we found on the website: an exceptional property in the heart of Gotty which combined warmth, luxury and practicality.
Everything had been thought of, nothing was missing. We highly recommend this chalet for a holiday with family or friends.
Vannier F. - 14/02/2015

“Beyond our dreams”
We were warned that it was amazing – actually it was exceptional! The architecture both inside and out, the refined décor, the panoramic view, the proximity to the slopes and the tranquillity. Everything is designed to make you feel really pampered. We only have one desire: to come back.
André L. - 17/01/2015
“A dream holiday”
We have just spent a dream week in a comfortable chalet in a very quiet location with stunning views over Etale and the village. It’s an experience we have to repeat – we’ll be back!
Dumortier F. - 21/11/2014
“Top of the range equipment”
We spent a superb week in this magnificent chalet, which was warm, welcoming and tastefully decorated. Everything was arranged to make sure nothing could spoil our wonderful holiday: a panoramic view of the village, the Aravis mountains and Etale. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
