You’ll struggle to take your eyes off the incredible views from Chalet Morclan near Manigod - La Clusaz. The large terraces on two sides of the house are the perfect place from which to admire the mountains of the Manigod valley - Etale, the Aiguille de Manigod, Mont Charvin, Val Sulens, and La Tournette.
Sitting on the crest of a hill, this 4 star chalet enjoys total privacy. It is reached by a lane which is kept clear of snow, but the 100m drive can be tricky to negotiate in winter - visitors may need to leave the car at the bottom and walk the last bit to be on the safe side! But it’s absolutely worth the effort.
There’s a narrow rural path at the back which is occasionally used by local farmers to bring sheep and felled trees down from the higher pastures, but apart from that you’ll enjoy splendid isolation.
Steep steps to the house and the open tread of the staircase mean it is not suitable for those with limited mobility or very small children, but groups with older children will love the homely touches such as books, DVDs, games and, in the garden, a trampoline.
Chalet Morclan is just 3km from the beautiful village of Manigod, where the church often hosts concerts and organ recitals as well as mass. You'll also find a bar/restaurant, a bakery, pottery shop, hairdressers, craft shop, health spa and a physio clinic in Manigod.
Groups of up to eight will find plenty of space in this well-planned chalet recently awarded a 4 star rating.
The spacious entrance hall leads to a well-equipped kitchen and a bright and spacious living/dining room. Two comfortable sofas and two large pouffes surround an open fire and the dining table has plenty of room for everyone to eat together.
There's a music system and the television offers a choice of French and English channels, but in good weather, open the doors on to the large terrace and eat outside so that you can enjoy the fabulous views.
There's a large double bedroom on this floor, which opens on to another sunny terrace and has an en suite shower room. The double bed can be separated in to two single beds, and there's a sofa which is the perfect place to grab a quiet moment with a good book. Also on this floor is a separate toilet and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer - the underfloor heating makes this a great place to hang up your outdoor clothes so that they are warm and dry for the next day.
There are four more bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room as well as a dressing room and an independent toilet. The two single beds clip together to form a large double and there are doors on to the sunny balcony. Next door is another large room which has a second lounge area with a day bed for a settee. There is also a TV, DVD player and a huge selection of books, as well as a double bed, wardrobe and drawers. It's a great place for children to hang out while the adults have dinner.
There are two more single bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a corner bath.
The bedding is all good quality, with lots of throws to keep you snug on the coldest of nights. Outside there's plenty of parking space as well as a small flat garden with a trampoline, a slide and a swing. The large furnished terrace is home to the hto tub, where you can soak up the sun from sunrise to sunset.
ABOUT THE AREA ...
When you stay at Chalet Morclan you're right in the heart of some great skiing, without the hustle and bustle of the purpose-built ski resorts.
Parking is free at the Croix Fry sector of the La Clusaz pistes (altitude 1500m), 10km away, and the ski bus stops in Manigod, just 3km away. There's an ESF base, and parents can enjoy lunch or a drink while youngsters build confidence on the nursery slopes.
From here, your Aravis/La Clusaz ski pass gives you access to 95 lifts and 220km of pistes, so there's plenty of scope for skiers of every level.
Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails to choose from on the nearby Beauregard plateau, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema at La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
In the summer, you can explore the mountains and the pine forests by foot or by bike (if you are super-fit) from Chalet Morclan, and the half-hour walks into Manigod village are downhill on the way but uphill on the way back!
There are quite a few marked footpaths criss-crossing this beautiful farming valley, but if you want to make the most of the altitude, put your bike on the ski lift at La Clusaz and come back down at your own pace, or pack a picnic and explore the Beauregard plateau.
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, or white-water rafting within a few miles of Manigod. Via ferrata is another great family day out, with adults and children able to explore the mountains on iron walkways, secured to a harness. Why not go on a donkey trek in the Col des Aravis with a picnic in the large baskets carried by the donkeys?
Annecy is a great destination for a day out. Only 30 minutes away by car, there's a beautiful medieval town and canals to explore as well as the lake, where you can try a range of watersports, enjoy a cruise, hire a boat or just have a lazy day on the beach.
Please note: the drive to the chalet is quite steep, every effort will be made to have it cleared of snow on arrival and departure days, be aware you may need to leave your car at the bottom of the drive and walk up.
Please note the shed (mazot) by the parking belongs to a neighbouring farmer, who needs occasional access to the equipment within all year round. Please do not park in front of it.
NOTE: Free wifi. Cleaning, linen and towels included!
