The Experience

The 14km-long Piste des Cascades – the longest in the Alps – winds its gentle way through the mountains until it ends beside a tiny bar at the foot of the Sixt ski slopes. And your chalet, a beautiful 1830s farmhouse that has been part of the community for years. Today it shines: no short cuts have been taken by warm generous hosts Sally-Anne and Simon, who live upstairs in a separate apartment. Two bright modern sofa’d rooms form the sitting area, one with board games, DVDs and French and English channels, the other with the roaring woodburner. Beyond are the dining room and well-equipped kitchen stocked with the basics and a welcome hamper if you’d like one. On the first floor are four warm, woody, clean-cut bedrooms, two with glorious views, all with super bathrooms and heated floors. For days on the slopes the ski bus will pick you up 50m away, and in summer you have a huge network of hiking trails to stretch your legs on too; return to a soak in the hot tub under the stars. Restaurants are a short walk away. A brilliant bolthole for family and friends.

Reviews

What a gem!! La Cerisaise boasts an airy inviting atmosphere, comfortable furnishings, en-suite privacy, luxurious linens and ample amenities all in the spectacular setting of this lesser known part of the Alpes. We enjoyed cooking in the well stocked kitchen, afternoon dips in the relaxing hot tub, meals on the deck, as well as endless excursions, all accessible from the house. Owners Sally-Anne and Simon are ever so accommodating and yet the epitome of discretion, the perfect hosts. We absolutely loved our stay at this immaculately kept home and highly recommend for family holidays!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Simon & Sally-Anne Airey

  • Sixt Fer à Cheval is classified as one of 'the most beautiful villages in France'. It's one of only 5 villages in the Alps to hold that title.
  • Sixt is one of the 5 resort villages of the Grand Massif, the 4th largest linked ski domain in France. Perhaps the area's best kept secret, it's the place to stay if you're looking for peace and outstanding natural beauty as well as world-class skiing.
  • The chalet is just a few minutes walk (or ski) from the winter ski slopes, and in summer a huge range of walking and biking trails begin on the doorstep - a number of circuits are possible, via mountain refuge huts for refreshment or an overnight stay.
  • Sixt is famous for the Cirque du Fer à Cheval, a huge limestone amphitheatre of rock faces and waterfalls 500-700m high - a spectacular place for walking, cycling, cross-country skiing in winter, or for simply drinking in the breathtaking surroundings...
  • The historic village centre, with the River Giffre running through it, is close by. Visit the 13th century church, cross-country ski along the river bank or embark on a thrilling rafting trip. Afterwards, relax at the auberge or a riverside bar.
  • Sixt has been a magnet for alpine and winter sports enthusiasts for over 150 years and was popular with the early British pioneers of alpinism. It has its own company of high mountain guides, founded in 1865.
