About Chalet Patagonia ...
Much care and attention has been lavished on the renovation of this stunning chalet, which is just 100m from the La Clusaz ski slopes and 1.5km from the centre of La Clusaz, where you will find plenty of bars, shops and restaurants.
The stylish interior has been designed so that even when 12 people are staying at Chalet Patagonia, everyone can find some privacy when they want it. Skilled local craftsmen were used to make much of the furniture, and the fittings are all of the highest quality. This attention to detail, combined with the chalet’s superb position close to the popular La Balme pistes, is sure to make your holiday very special.
The property ...
Sleeping up to 12 people in five comfortable bedrooms with four bathrooms (one with a hammam), there's plenty of room for everyone to relax at Chalet Patagonia.
Four of the bedrooms are on the ground floor - two doubles, a twin room (which can be made into a double if you prefer), which are all en suite, and a room with two sets of bunk beds. One of the en suite bathrooms has a hammam too!
There is also a small kitchen on this floor, which is useful for preparing food to eat in the garden. This kitchen has a huge impressive stove with built-in seating - the perfect place to warm up when you come in from the snow!
The fifth bedrooms, a large en suite double, is on the floor above, where you will also find the lovely open plan living area and a large family kitchen. There's a large dining table where you can all eat together, and cosy chairs around an ethanol fireplace. Why not grab a bottle of wine from the wine cellar (payable at the end of your stay) to enjoy on the sunny balcony?
The furnished terrace is the perfect place to catch some sun, enjoy a barbecue or perhaps relax in the Nordic hot tub after an active day in the mountains.
About the area ...
Skiers of all abilities can ski right back to the door of this perfectly-located self-catering La Clusaz chalet.
The ski bus stops 20m from the chalet and will get you to the nearest lifts in just a few minutes, putting the whole of the La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand ski fields at your disposal - more than 220km of pistes on one single ski pass.
The local ESF ski school holds beginnners lessons on the piste close to the chalet, so children can ski there and back safely, without having to cross any roads. Cross-country skiers will find great terrain at Lac des Confin and the Glieres plateau, just a short drive away.
It’s just a 20-minute walk to La Clusaz village, where non-skiers will find an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor pools and spa centre and a cinema.
In the spring and summer, there are plenty of walks from the door of Chalet Patagonia, or you can take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking.
There’s a tennis club and riding centre just a few minutes’ walk away, and other activities within easy reach of La Clusaz include white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding.
The beautiful medieval town of Annecy, with a wide selection of shops and restaurants, is less than 30 minutes drive away. Its lake, the cleanest in Europe, is a great place for swimming and water sports, or just hire a boat and explore some of the peaceful lakeside beaches.
If you like the sound of a holiday at Chalet Patagonia, check your holiday dates against our availability calendar - you can hold the property for 24 hours if you need some time to make up your mind. But don't wait too long - Chalet Patagonia's great location close to pistes and La Clusaz village mean it is popular with OVO Network guests!

From the Owner
Every time we come to the chalet we feel as if we are wrapped up in a soft cocoon...
As a child I was lucky enough to go skiing every year with my parents and friends, and every year I was enchanted by the time we spent on the snow-covered slopes.
I have wonderful memories of returning from a great day on the pistes to a huge tea of delicious sandwiches and hot chocolate, long evenings playing cards and laughing together in front of the fire, and later, long discussions with friends, putting the world to rights.
La Clusaz was a favourite place to visit. Years later, my husband Pierre and I returned constantly as paragliding enthusiasts - flying over Lake Annecy, La Tournette, the Aravis mountains and Lachat in Le Grand Bornand, every time was as thrilling as the first. We would end the hot summer days on the shores of Lake Annecy, swimming in the turquoise waters as the mountains towered above us.
In 2008 we started looking for our own home in La Clusaz, and were lucky to find Chalet Patagonia, a farmhouse built in the late 19th century. It wasn’t a typical property for the region, and was in a poor state, but we loved the area and its rural charm. We resolved to renovate the building using the best materials and with the help of master carpenters and cabinetmakers.
We searched far and wide for old wood and stone. Old beams came from ancient Swiss halls, and the stone flooring came from Italy. Finally, the ceramic stove came from Austria.
Hoping to recreate the warm, comforting, cosy winters of our childhood, we furnished the chalet with big leather armchairs, thick woollen fabrics for the curtains, and piles of fur cushions. The chalet is arranged to accommodate 12 people, with a maximum of 8 adults, so that everyone has their own privacy. Three bedrooms are arranged as suites, with their own bathrooms. Two bedrooms, including the children’s bunk room, share a bathroom with a double stone sink and a shower-steam room.
The small kitchen on the ground floor means you can eat as soon as you get back from the slopes, warming your back against the stove. It’s also a good place to feed the children, or prepare a meal to eat outside on the sunny south-facing terrace. Upstairs, the large living and dining area is a great place to get together for an aperitif with friends around the central fireplace. The large kitchen is well equipped, with two ovens and two dishwashers, perfect for preparing big dinners.
Every time we come to the chalet we feel as if we are wrapped up in a soft cocoon, away from the stresses of the outside world. We’d like to share this experience with you during your holiday, and hope you appreciate the quality of the renovation that, I think it’s fair to say, is quite exceptional. We wish you a wonderful stay with us.

“A chalet with a personality ”
We loved our stay at Chalet Patagonia. The space, the deco, the big dining table... Great all around ! Ski bus in the evening stop quite early (around 7:45pm) so it's better to have a car.
Laura M. - 16/03/2019
Chalet Patagonia is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 children and we had a lot of fun in this chalet. It is very well located and we loved going back via the piste in the afternoon. We also loved the wood heated hot tub .... takes some time to prepare but great fun once you are in and there is something special to have to get the fire going to heat it up.
The style of the property is great and the chalet has been very well thought off. Ski in ski out is great too and we loved the outside wood heated hot tub. Overall very nice place and very comfortable
The things we liked in the area : views on the mountains and proximity to city centre.

“Great chalet, spotless and nice design. ”
Close to a path leading to the slopes. It is also located next to a poney club and a farm selling the famous Reblochon so very kids friendly. Laurent the manager is here to give you any tips about your stay. I definitively recommend this chalet for families.

“Splendid and luxurious chalet”
Even with so many people in our group, this authentic chalet has allowed to each one of us to have his own space and enjoy high-standing services. We felt at home and had a fabulous time. Thank you Laurent, the manager of the house, to be so flexible and helpful. Nearby we enjoyed lovely walks, sledging, skiing, horse riding, and easy access to shops. Icing on the cake: you won't have to remove the snow from your alley!!!

“An exceptional stay”
A surprise holiday organised for my husband's 50th birthday with his nine best friends. The snow and sunshine arrived as ordered, there were intense and funny moments sledging on the slopes, gastronomic discoveries at Chalet des Praz, La Scierie, La Fruitiere etc, but above all, what really made the holiday was the chalet and the Scandinavian hot tub. Everyone returned happy from this week. A big thank you also to Delphine and Laurent for their professionalism, their devotion and their kindness. We will be back, that's for sure.

“Great week in La Clusaz”
Lucky with the snow coming on the day we arrived so plenty of skiing followed by relaxing in the hot tub / hammam and some good dinners around the huge dining table. Space to chill, ambience, nice wood burner, good kitchen facilities, Wifi and huge TV. La Clusaz has a cosy village feel compared to larger ski resorts. The lift connections allow for a good variety of skiing without buses. Would recommend strongly, but make sure you have a car as the walk up the hill out of town can be tiring!!

“Full of character”
A comfortable chalet full of character and with lots of modern conveniences. The hot tub and sauna were bonuses as was the excellent drying facility with the ground floor fire. La Clusaz is a very French ski resort with lots of good skiing and restaurants.

Very spacious, a good position, warmly decorated and the hammam was ideal at the end of the day. The design is well done, with authentic material.
