Property Description

This delightful property comprises a traditional Beaufortain chalet that has been stylishly refurbished into a comfortable family home, with an adjoining smaller chalet that offers strong rental potential in this sought-after location at the heart of the French Alps. The large chalet has a splendid open-plan living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor, four double bedrooms and a beautiful library-style living room on the first floor, and an enormous, light-filled attic that is currently used as a workshop but easily convertible to a further bedroom or living space under the eaves. The small chalet is connected to the main house by a large south-facing terrace with beautiful views of the Beaufortain mountains. This fully self-contained chalet would be the perfect holiday property and could generate substantial rental income for the owners. It currently has three bedrooms on its upper floors and a large space on the ground floor that is ready to be converted into a kitchen and living area. In total, there is 379m2 of living space across the two chalets.

The main chalet comprises 313m2, over four levels:


- Storage caves

Ground Floor:

- Entrance hallway

- Open-plan living/dining area (48m2) with wood pellet stove and glass doors to balcony (8m2)

- Fully-equipped fitted kitchen (15.5m2)

- Shower-room & independent WC

- Sun porch and pantry

First Floor:

- Four double bedrooms (2 x 15m2, 1 x 10m2, 1 x 9m2)

- Library (25m2)

- Two walk-in closets/dressing areas

- One bathroom with shower & independent WC


- Huge open-plan space (100m2) currently used as workshop and storage, easy to convert into another bedroom or living area

The second chalet comprises 66m2 of living space with a further 35m2 available after completion of building work:

Ground floor:

- Kitchen/living area with open fire (35m2), to be completed

First floor:

- Two double bedrooms (15m2 & 11m2)

- Shower-room with WC

Second floor:

The terrace between the two chalets is 60m2 and there is also an extensive garden area with a traditional bread oven. The property is accessed by a gravel driveway of 30 metres in length. There is parking for 4 cars outside the large chalet and it would be possible to add further spaces below the smaller chalet, if required. The total size of the plot is 18,865m2, including some forest. Deer and other wildlife are frequent visitors to the garden. The property sits in a secluded, south-facing location with no visible neighbours.

The village centre of Villard-sur-Doron is 2km away; here you will find a large supermarket that serves much of the valley, as well as other local amenities. The ski station of Bisanne 1500 is 6km from the chalet, giving access to the Les Saisies and Espace Diamant ski areas. The pretty village of Beaufort – home of the famous cheese – is 7km away. In summer, the area enjoys superb hiking around the many high-altitude lakes and forests, and there is also world-class road cycling – the Tour de France has passed through twice in recent years and will do so again in 2019. Beaufort 7km, Albertville (nearest train station) 18km, Megève 35km, Annecy 52km, Chambéry Airport 75km, Geneva Airport 95km, Lyon Airport 150km Please click on my photo above to view the full portfolio of properties for sale in Les Saisies and the Val d’Arly.

Espace Diamant Ski Area

This newly completed ski area is a hit. It brings together some of the prettiest ski resorts in the Alps, and when you’re floating around on the super light snow found in the area there is one word that sums up the experience of skiing this domain – scenery – it’s really pretty, it’s really stunning.

For much of the skiing you are under the watchful eye of Mont Blanc the highest peak in Western Europe, which provides a sensational backdrop to any activity. The snow record for this area is exemplary and opens from mid Dec to late April in spite of being a relatively low area; they call it the Mont Blanc effect. Snow seems to fall here when surrounding resorts are not being so lucky and many a time I’ve been over to find fresh thigh deep powder when all around are praying for snow.

It is made up of five resorts; Crest Voland Cohennoz, Flumet, Hautluce, Notre-dame de Bellecombe, Praz sur Arly and Les Saisies and most of these resorts have their own satellite villages and resorts such as Bisanne 1500 which, whilst it has its own lifts, is classified as part of Les Saisies.

The Espace Diamant has 185kms of marked piste; 31 green runs, 59 blues, 47 red and 11 black, so something for everyone and in addition 4 bordercross trails and 3 snowparks add to the ensemble. Because of the newness of the area the lift system is good and efficient.

This whole area is extremely good for families; it is not for the full on party animals but there is a pleasant vibe in these resorts. In the summer the place is absolutely stunning; incredible vistas and flower meadows take the breath away and it is a great place for all types of mountain adventures whether of the gourmet, relaxing kind or full on adrenalin kind!
