After a busy day exploring the French Alps, you'll be glad to return to this stunning split-level detached chalet, set over three floors, with plenty of room for eight people (maximum six adults).
Built at the foot of the Col des Aravis, it offers spectacular views over the Etale pistes and towards the Beauregard plateau. The lively village of La Clusaz, with its market, shops, bars and restaurants, is just 2km away, and it’s just 250m to the Transval ski lift, so you’ll waste no time getting on the slopes.
The architect and interior designer have worked together using high-spec soft furnishings and appliances to ensure the property and its contemporary interior reflect the fabulous mountain setting.
All the comforts you need are here, as well as the practicalities - such as a double garage, home office space, laundry and ski store.
The property ...
Quality furnishings and fabrics have been used to great effect in this charming lodge, with natural materials such as slate and wood teamed with fur throws and contemporary lighting.
The front door takes you to the top floor of the house, where you will find an office area and three bedrooms - two doubles with showers, dressing areas and balconies, and a twin room with washing facilities and a separate toilet. All of the double beds can be arranged as twin beds if you prefer.
The master bedroom has the lower ground floor to itself, as well as a sumptuous bathroom, shower, dressing area and an office. There's also a separate toilet.
The main living area is on the middle floor - a cosy sitting area and a large dining table open on to the spacious terrace, with stunning views of the mountains. In the summer, it's a great place to soak up the sun or enjoy a barbecue. On cooler evening, curl up on the sofa in front of the central woodburning stove. There's also a spacious fitted kitchen which has everything you need to cook up a feast, from a full roast dinner to a raclette.
About the area ...
Keen skiers and boarders need waste no time getting to the slopes from this La Clusaz chalet - the nearest ski lift is just 250m from your door. From here you have the fabulous ski fields of La Clusaz and Manigod at your disposal, more than 200km of snowsure pistes ready and waiting, via Le Gotty or L’Etale.
The ski bus stops just 50m from Aravis Lodge. Floodlights on some slopes mean you can ski into the night, and the weekly torchlit descent into La Clusaz is unforgettable!
A wide selection of trails means cross-country skiers will be spoilt for choice, while non-skiers can try the local ice rink, swimming pool and sledge run, or strap on some snowshoes and take to the mountain paths. With all this on your doorstep there’s no need to venture further afield, but if you want to try something different, Le Grand Bornand is easily accessible, and Chamonix is within easy reach for a day out.
There’s no time to be bored when you spend your summer holiday at Aravis Lodge. 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 on your way to witness the magnificent views across to the Mont Blanc chain from the various view points along the Col.
Let the telecabine ferry you and your bike into the mountains of La Clusaz or Merdassier, so you can come back down at your own pace. You can hire donkeys from a nearby farm 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 Aravis peaks.
A holiday at Aravis Lodge will leave you with fabulous memories, whatever time of year you decide to visit. Check our calendar to see when the property is available. If you need a little time we can hold the dates for you for 24 hours. But don't wait too long - you don't want to miss your chance to stay in this fabulous property.

From the Owner
The location is ideal for skiing and for walking/cycling alike, and the views superb.
“We have stayed in several of the Snow Lodge properties designed by M Masson over the last several years and that’s what gave us the idea of owning one for ourselves!
We decided to ask M Masson to create this wonderful chalet for us to share with our family and friends in the future. With its superb views over the mountains and valley, the location is ideal for skiing in discovering La Clusaz skiing domain and in summer you can’t get enough of walking/cycling opportunities.

“A lovely chalet with every comfort needed”
A beautiful bright living room that opens on to a really lovely terrace. The small kitchen is very well equipped. We really appreciated the baby gate on the stairs. The decor is lovely and the garage is great. We loved the surroundings, and being so close to the village of La Clusaz - the surrounding fields full of cows are just charming!
Cecile A. - 18/08/2018
The furniture is comfortable, the decor is tasteful, everything is clean. The surrounding scenery is a real joy, the view is perfect. As we were cycling everywhere, it would perhaps have been nicer to be closer to the village, but we'd still come back!

“We loved it”
The pre and post booking process and communication with resort staff was both easy and excellent. Our grateful thanks to Delphine and Camille for facilitating this process. Very good user friendly website: the property description is comprehensive and completely accurate.
Our arrival was perfectly handled by the manager, Mélanie.
The property was absolutely spotless, kitchen utensils included. The whole chalet is designed and appointed with comfort in mind.
What things did we specifically like about Aravis Lodge? its position, parking facilities, its amenities & comfort,hi-powered showers in the bathrooms. Great general layout and furnishing. Beautiful linens, towels, bathrobes, slippers. The balcony with outside dining table and sun loungers was fantastic too.
The owners have really made this property "like home".
As for the area, this was our first visit to La Clusaz for 20 years but the fourth in total. All in the summer months. We loved it.
Robert H. - 18/06/2016
We had a really lovely holiday with the family. The chalet is very comfortable, welcoming and quite simply superb. There was nothing we needed, everything was perfect. Superb decor, pretty scenery and a beautiful station on a human scale.

“We fell in love with this chalet! ”
Despite the absence of snow, our holiday was perfect. All seven of us loved this elegant chalet, so welcoming and cosy. The decor is modern but still warm and classy. The living room is the perfect size, the woodburner worked perfectly! The chalet is very well equipped, the bathrooms and shower rooms are well laid out, with very good water pressure. Thank you to the manager Melanie for her effiiency!

“Ideal for family holidays”
This chalet combining contemporary and traditional living is perfect for holidays with teenagers. The living room is spacious and everyone can find their own space when they need to. There are plenty of things to do nearby, and after a long walk the terrace is a great place to sit and enjoy the view. Our only wish is to return as soon as possible!
Stéphane E. - 25/07/2015

We had a very comfortable stay at this sunny location. Plus it's only a short distance to ski lift too.
