The house is situated in the village of Praz sur Arly. We are the last chalet on our lane, which then becomes a track leading to the hamlet of Cassioz; farmers’ fields form the border of the garden. To the front of the house rises the forest, with mountains above. In the winter it is a magical world of snow and in the summer it is a wildlife paradise of green meadows, wild flowers and tinkling cow bells. To the rear of the house, on a clear day, you can catch a glimpse of Mont Blanc at the furthest point of the valley.
Winter and summer, the parapentes (paragliders) come down onto the grassy landing strip across the lane – visitors never fail to be delighted by this spectacle. You may be enticed to try this for yourselves and the €70+ price-tag is worth it for the view! In good weather you can often spot hot air balloons and in the winter, expect to see teams of sled-pulling huskies running past the front of the house.
In ski-season, a ten-minute walk brings you to the local ski slopes at Praz sur Arly. For walkers, it is also a short stroll along a farm track to the picturesque hamlet of Cassioz. A ten-minute drive takes you to the elegant resort of Megeve.
The chalet itself is a traditional pinewood three-storey family home, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It sleeps up to 11 people.
