Ref: Born 0001


This is a lovely 65 sqm 2 bedroomed apartment, sleeping up to 4 people, and located in a traditional chalet on a quiet no through road above the old village of Chinaillon, part of the village of Le Grand Bornand in Haute Savoie, France. It is light and spacious and the apartment has its own front door and is reached via steps down from the driveway. The Grand Bornand pistes are reached in 3 minutes by car or under 15 minutes by foot. Le Chinaillon's cross-country (Nordic) pistes are directly behind the chalet.

This apartment is on the lower ground floor of a chalet and the property owner uses the main chalet above. There are beautiful, unobstructed views of the mountain scenery from the bedrooms and the sitting room, and the apartment has its own terrace and garden. In winter, central heating makes it cosy and warm, and there is always plenty of hot water.

There are two bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is fitted with a double bed and bedroom 2 is fitted with 2 single beds. Each bedroom has a built-in wardrobe as well as a chest of drawers. There is a large bathroom which has a full sized bath with a shower over, basin, cupboards, a heated towel rail and a great bonus item of a washing machine. There is an additional small shower room with a WC and basin as well as a separate WC.

The living area is furnished with a brand new sofa bed (sleeping up to 2 occasional guests) and an armchair. We are waiting for a new picture to show the updated layout. There is patio door access onto a south facing garden and there is a TV with access to French satellite TV ( Astra sat dish so there is the potential a British set-top box could be used to access UK TV). Wifi is also available with this property.

The kitchen is well equipped with a 4-ring gas hob, a full sized electric oven, a large fridge, dishwasher, and a good selection of cooking equipment, utensils and crockery. Also in the kitchen space is a a dining table and seating.

There is underfloor heating and plenty of space to store skis, boards and boots and to hang outdoor clothing in the hallway.

Outside there is private parking for 1-2 cars on the driveway (which is snow cleared). An outdoor table, chairs and parasol are provided, along with a couple of loungers with cushions as well as a BBQ. Something for the late season warm days perhaps.

Chinaillon is part of the Aravis region which includes La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand, Manigod, and St Jean de Sixt. This resort is about 40 minutes drive from Annecy . Le Chinaillon has a good range of shops (including a Spar supermarket) and restaurants, reached from the apartment in 5-10 mins on foot. Le Grand Bonrnand has a weekly produce market and the closes large supermarket is 20 minutes drive away in Thones, en route to Annecy. Geneva is only an hour away so this is an easy access location for those wanting a weekend ski-retreat.  A car is advised for this location.
