The Experience

The cow-belled Vallée d’Abondance envelops this smart and pretty pine chalet, the result of years of your hosts’ dynamic energy. Oak floors, soft shapes and high ceilings hug reclaimed furniture and works by other members of this creative family – and other artists, whose pieces are temporarily exhibited and for sale. Warmth comes from a Finnish stove and solar panels – an eco-lover’s dream and you’ll find blissful relaxation in the hot tub (along with spectacular views). Expect cultured chat in the intimate dining room and Suzie’s range-cooked local and organic food. Or you can book a Karmaway chef to create superb and socially-conscious haute cuisine meals especially for you. Bedrooms have stunning views too, and dreamy bathrooms; gaze to mountains you climbed, snow-shoed or skied that day. If more of an adrenaline-rush is needed you can ice-dive, heli-ski or paraglide. And if you need a tad more relaxation, some serious spa pampering can easily be arranged. This is Alpine heaven -just over an hour’s drive from Geneva (where you can be met from the airport) and close to Evian and Lake Geneva.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Pascal & Suzie Immediato

  • Ski and snow activities: Our nearest downhill skiing is 5km from the chalet in the gorgeous market town and ski resort of Abondance. There is also cross-country skiing, ice driving, husky sledding and ski joering. Or snowshoe 5 minutes up our mountain!
  • Meet the locals at our new village bar/restaurant. Julie and chef Guillaume already have a reputation for creating a warm friendly atmosphere and excellent meals with local ingredients and foraged mountain plants, when they are not hidden under the snow!
  • Spa breaks: There are four thermal spas within reach of the chalet, two on Lake Geneva and two in the Swiss mountains. There have fabulous mountain pools, saunas, hammams and treatments. We can also arrange in-house massage and reflexology and local yoga.
  • There are many walking paths around us including strenuous sprints up the mountain; the views are magnificent! Or take the path all along the river all the way up the valley, passing through the villages where you can call in for a leisurely drink.
  • Being a Anglo/French couple we offer a different kind of snowy winter holiday, a taste of France mixed with British and international cuisine. Our local contacts and authentic mountain village will make your stay unique and memorable.
