About the neighbourhood
The chalet is within less than 10mins from the ski/MTB lifts of La Grande Terche, 15 mins from those of Morzine, less than 20mins from Ardent (which links directly to Avoriaz) and 20mins from Les Gets, all of which are part of the Portes du Soleil ski/MTB area. The chalet is right in the heart of the Chablais walking and hiking area, with several walks directly accessible on foot from the chalet's front door. Several beaches are close by, on lac Montriond (15mins), Seytrouc (10mins), Les Gets (20mins) or Lake Geneva (30 to 40mins) as well as an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and spa in Morzine and indoor activity pool in Avoriaz Other sporting activities include: paragliding, rock climbing, canoeing, canyoning, rafting, paint-balling, tree
Getting around
The village of Saint Jean d'Aulps can be reached on foot within 30 minutes, where 'navettes' can take you to the local resorts: Morzine, La Grande Terche, Montriond, Les Gets. However, we do recommend a car to access the chalet. The chalet is easily accessible by car, summer and winter as the snow plough drives past the chalet several times a day when snowing.
