If you are looking for an isolated ski chalet with character in the mountains, that also happens to be just 10 minutes from Les Gets and the Portes du Soleil ski area, this could be it.
The chalet is situated on the access route up to the traditional ski resort of Praz de Lys, in between Les Gets and Taninges.
Recently, a new tunnel has been constructed to ensure direct access from Les Gets. The road is cleared of snow all winter long.
It has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is split into two main accommodation spaces. One private area and another which is for seasonal rentals.
Both areas have their own kitchen and living room with fireplaces.
The two accommodation areas are connected on the mid and mezzanine floors.
Therefore, a single group or family can make use of the whole chalet. 300 m2 of habitable space.
NB, the property needs significant upgrades.
Geneva airport is just 45 minutes away.

1.) Les Portes du Soleil (10 minute drive): The closest access point is from just outside Les Gets. Les Portes du Soleil is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world with 12 stations that lie between France and Switzerland including Avoriaz, Châtel, Les Gets, Morzine, Champéry, Morgins, Torgon, Les Crosets and Champoussin in the Val-d’Illiez.
2.) Praz de Lys–Sommand (5 minute drive): The small ski station at Praz de Lys is behind Avonnex on the way to Les Gets and provides a delightful alternative to its more famous neighbours. Located an altitude of 1500m, with a top station of 2000m, it has an enviable snow record for a lesser known resort. The resort has Alpine skiing and extensive cross country skiing. In summer, the hiking is fabulous.
3.) The Grand Massif (20 minute drive): The closest access point is from the cable car in the village of Morillon. The ski area consists of Les Carroz, Samoëns, Morillon, Sixt Fer à Cheval and Flaine and has 265km of pistes. With a top station of 2500 metres, mostly north-facing slopes, and close proximity to Mt Blanc and the microclimate it generates, this is one of the Haute-Savoie’s most snow-sure ski resorts.
This area is just as popular in the summer with numerous activities and festivals all season long. Check out the Les Gets and Praz de Lys tourist sites for more information.
