La Baume - 20 minutes from the ski lifts in Morzine, Portes du Soleil ski domain and 20 minutes from the spa resorts on Lake Geneva, this chalet for sale is truly a delight in all seasons.
The chalet sleeps up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. It is a light and airy detached chalet with all round beautiful uninterrupted views, in a peaceful location above the village of La Baume. The current owners used local craftsmen to totally renovate it, completely replacing the roof, insulation, electrics and plumbing and it has been immaculately maintained.
The layout of the property offers a number of possibilities for use: it can be kept as two separate apartments or a staircase can be added to join the two floors into one large chalet; there is also the possibility (subject to planning) of extending to create an even bigger space.
The chalet is fully accredited as a 3* holiday property with the local Tourist board and has been successfully rented through popular internet sites and the local tourist office. The current owners have also enjoyed many family holidays here over the years and have found it an ideal base not only for the skiing in the winter but also the many summer activities on offer in the surrounding area. The chalet could equally be a permanent family home in a traditional savoyard village. Partial sterling transaction available.
La Baume is 16 kms from Morzine and there is a regular bus service along the valley during the tourist seasons which goes as far as Les Gets, giving easy access to the vast Portes du Soleil Ski Domain.
The chalet is constructed on three floors with access to the ground floor accommodation currently from the outside. This allows each area to be used individually. There is ample kitchen and bathroom accommodation for eight people. There is efficient modern electric heating throughout the chalet, as well as two wood burning stoves. A new hot water tank has recently been installed.

Whilst this area is renowned for the Portes Du Soleil Ski Domain with its 650kms of pisted skiing and the famous resorts of Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets, it’s worth noting that the whole area enjoys a strong Summer season. Walkers and mountain bikers flock to enjoy what’s on offer and families often take a white water rafting trip on the River Dranse.
Thonon is little over 20 minutes’ drive and with it the shores of Lake Leman/Geneva (depending whether your speaking to a French or Swiss person). The ports and fishing villages along this shoreline still thrive, the small fishing boats can be seen daily bringing back the catch of fera and perche to sell to the local restaurants.
There are shingle beaches which have life guards on patrol making it a safe haven for families to swim and enjoy the water sports on offer.
Geneva International airport is just over an hour away and with daily flights arriving from most regions of the UK all year, it’s an easy destination not just for the traditional week’s holiday, but also for short breaks and long week-ends at any time of the year.
