Family home is the perfect base for discovering the area all year round.
This beautiful 4 star family home is in Les Confins, 5km from the centre of La Clusaz, and boasts exceptional panoramic views of the whole Aravis mountain range.
It has been partly refurbished to make a delightful holiday option for two families or a large group of friends. Sleeping 10 people (maximum 8 adults), it is in the heart of the cross country skiing area of the Plateau de Confins, and 1km away from the downhill skiing sector at Balme (and the Balme and Fernuy telecabins).
There is a bus stop for the free ski bus, which passes by every 20 minutes throughout the day, 40 metres from the chalet. The same bus will also take you into the centre of La Clusaz and at night it runs every hour, so you don’t need to worry about taking the car if you want a night out. Alternatively you could walk up to one of several restaurants at Confins, just 500m away from the chalet.
There is a garage for one car at the chalet, and parking for four more cars.The sunny balcony is the perfect place from which to take in the stunning scenery, and there is also a sun-kissed terrace and a large garden available winter and summer.
Make yourself at home in this welcoming 4 star ski chalet.
There’s a warm welcome waiting at this spacious home, which sleeps up to 10 people (maximum 8 adults) in four bedrooms, one of which, on the ground floor, has an en suite shower room.
There is a family bathroom and three more bedrooms on the mezzanine floor, one of which has two single beds with two pull-out beds for children. There is another shower room on the first floor.
The light and spacious open-plan living room with fireplace opens on to a south-facing terrace with fabulous views over the mountains and the piste - it’s the perfect place to enjoy some sunshine, whatever the time of year. The dining area has doors on to the terrace, which is a great spot for a barbecue.
On colder evenings, sink into the leather sofas around the fireplace and plan the next exciting day in the Aravis mountains, or find space on the roomy mezzanine overlooking the lounge.
A perfect mountain paradise for fans of winter sports.
Chalet Margueron is superbly located, just minutes from La Clusaz and overlooking the popular La Balme ski field - a favourite with French freeride world champion Candide Thovex.
The ski lift is just 1km away, but if you’d rather not take the car, the ski bus stops just 40m away and runs every 20 minutes, putting the whole of the Annecy ski resorts at your disposal. Alternatively, there are great trails for cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers at the nearby Lac des Confins and the Beauregard plateau, and fans of ski rando will be spoiled for choice, with 12 cols within 1km of the chalet.
If you fancy a break from the pistes, La Clusaz has an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa centre, and a cinema. If you’re looking for a challenge, try sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides, all within a few miles of your holiday home. Chalet Margueron is also the perfect base for the Défi Foly competition in April, when skiers end the season by seeing how far they can ski across the frozen Lac des Confins.
The chalet is just 40m from the main road, which is always clear of snow, but the altitude means snow chains should be fitted to your car.
Relax in the sunshine or go wild in the mountains.
Situated just outside the year-round resort of La Clusaz, there are plenty of outdoor activities within a few minutes of Chalet Margueron.
Enjoy a gentle walk and a picnic around the Lac des Confins, where you will also find a tennis club, golf course, driving range, fishing and a riding centre. For more of a challenge, take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking, or try white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding in the La Clusaz area.
Fishing is available in the Lac des Confins, the golf course and driving range are also nearby. The beautifully located outdoor pools in La Clusaz, Grand Bornand and Thones are great places to spend an afternoon.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Annecy are just 40 minutes drive away, making it a great place for a day out - you can swim and fish in the lake, windsurf or just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.
Discover so much more when you explore a little further.
Chalet Margueron is ideally placed to make the most of everything the Aravis mountains have to offer.
There’s a great choice of restaurants and shops in the busy town of La Clusaz, and the weekly market is a great place to pick up fresh local produce.
There are more shops and larger supermarkets in Thônes, just a few minutes drive away, and for a day out, the medieval lakeside town of Annecy, which boasts several Michelin-starred restaurants, shops and museums, is hard to beat.
Geneva airport is less than an hour away, making transfers quick and convenient.

The OVO Network Review
“A warm welcome back to this popular property, now owned by a different family.”
We were sad to learn that the previous owners of Chalet Margueron had decided to sell this very popular property, then thrilled to hear that the new owners wanted to continue to work with the OVO Network, and with Alexis, who has managed the chalet very succesfully for several years.
All of the fixtures and fittings remain intact, returning guests will still feel at home at the 4 star Chalet Margueron! The appeal of this comfortable, unpretentious 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom chalet for 10 remains the same; the proximity to the fabulous yet charming playground that is Lake Confins, La Balme just across and down the road, easy access to the ski bus meaning that the chalet appeals to skiers and non skiers alike. Multi generational family groups or friends bound together by a love of the mountains, beautiful scenery, and comfort, will all enjoy this property. We particularly like the views from the breakfast table across fresh snow to the winter playgrounds beyond, which is equally breathtaking and a lot greener in the summer! The cosy lounge with an open fireplace and the extra seating area on the mezzanine are great spaces to spend time in. Whilst the property is a bus/taxi/car ride away from the village of La Clusaz itself, the benefits of the more peaceful setting will really appeal to those who like to play hard, then appreciate a quieter, magnificent, natural setting too.

From the Owner
An incredible place for enjoying unique moments with family and friends...
"We were already totally in love with this region, so when the opportunity came up for us to look for a property to buy, we knew we wanted to be close to an authentic Savoyard village, which was also easily accessible. The village of La Clusaz located in the heart of the Aravis and close to Annecy appeared to us to be the perfect location.
We found our ideal chalet, set in a lush green meadow, facing the splendid Aravis mountains, a short walk from Lac des Confins.
The location is incredibly quiet and and perfectly preserved. It's a place with something for everyone: in winter one can benefit from the proximity of the superb ski area of La Clusaz, the cross country Nordic skiing begins literally from the doorstep, there is sledging and a choice of cafes overlooking the lake, an easy and short walk away. In summer it is possible to play golf, to go hiking, or on bike rides (on and off road), or the zip wire across the lake at Confins...
Chalet Margueron is the perfect place to spend time with loved ones. The different living spaces enable all to spread out and benefit from the peace and quiet. We hope never to tire of the beautiful views or the ever changing light that floods the chalet."

“A great holiday”
We have been coming to La Clusaz for 30 years. The chalet is in a great location. It is well appointed with good bedding.

“A very good family holiday”
A very lovely chalet with amenities on every floor, situated just 20m from the ski bus stop for getting to the pistes. We received a lovely welcome from Alexis, the manager, who was always available when we needed him. A really lovely fireplace, and we also loved the veranda where we ate our meals overlooking the snowy scenery. The terrace is also really lovely and the boot warmers are very practical. We recommend the Lac des Confins for snow-shoeing and the ski-joering.
Henri F. - 04/03/2017
“Nice and spacious”
We enjoyed our stay in your very nice chalet an loved the view on the beautifull Alps. Also our compliments to Alexis the manager, he provided us with an excellent service.

“A lovely holiday, despite the weak sunshine”
The chalet is very comfortable. The dining room has a wonderful view of the countryside. The groundfloor bedroom is quite a bonus. The welcome was very warm: Alexis is kind, helpful and efficient. The quiet, the surroundings, and the beautiful countryside all contributed to making it a great holiday. We really made the most of the riding club and the Piou Piou club, and of course the ski station. Just one thing: more light would be good, especiallly in the kitchen and the living room. We might be back next year.

“A cosy yet spacious chalet. ”
Three good showers, comfortable bed linen, good heating, close to the ski bus and a warm welcome. The village and the traders were, on the whole, very welcoming.
Vincent N. - 26/03/2016
“The Chalet was just perfect. ”
It is very well equipped & clean & modern, with wonderful views of the mountains through the large glass windows & doors. Also close to a ski bus. The village was attractive & the mountains beautiful.
Vanessa R. - 19/03/2016
“What a fantastic place!”
First visit to La Clusaz and what a fantastic place: very French, friendly, and with some great ski runs. Twinned with that was also a fantastic chalet, with sun terrace and log fire. Chalet Margueron is a spacious chalet with some great views of the surrounding mountains. Hopefully will revisit some time in the future!
Mark D. - 13/02/2016
“A great welcome”
A very good welcome and excellent holiday management from Alexis the manager.

“Excellent family holiday”
After a week at Chalet Margueron in February 2015, it was wonderful to come back for another week. Again we had a great week with the family in the marvellous chalet which is well equipped and cosy. And what a view! Such splendid scenery. The welcome was also very friendly. As for the skiing, the ski bus passes the end of the path and for those who like walking, the Confins plateau is less than a kilometre away. I've only one request - to come back!
Séverine R. - 30/01/2016
“The chalet was very welcoming. ”
We had a really good week - the chalet's location is idea for skiers and non skiers.
Nicole R. - 09/01/2016
We had a lovely holiday in your chalet, which was very well managed. The chalet really is the best, the view is superb. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to enjoy this place. We'll see you soon, perhaps.
Franck D. - 01/08/2015
“A real dream week...”
We had a dream week in your chalet, the countryside is magnificent, and the views take your breath away. The chalet is very well located, and gets a lot of sun in the morning and the evening. It is very well equipped with new bathrooms and top quality linen (very much appreciated). We will be back! I need to stress the kindness and professionalism of Alexis. To sum up, we were enchanted.
Sidonie F. - 14/03/2015
“Very good value for money”
The tranquility, the nature ... everything was perfect. There's a good bus service to the ski stations. A small problem with the kitchen equipment was quickly resolved by the manager.
Patrick H. - 14/02/2015
“An excellent service”
Very warm welcome, very comfortable and a really beautiful view.
Jacques F. - 07/02/2015
We had a great holiday in your chalet. It would be difficult not to feel good there, I have to say! It is very comfortable, very well equipped, clean and well-maintained, spacious, pleasant to live in and the surrounding countryside is fantastic. We had a great time with family and my parents in law, who had never been to the mountains, much less in winter, were delighted - what a snowy winter week! We've been coming to La Clusaz for 30 years, and I haven't seen so much snow for about 15 years. It was superb. Our only slight regret is that we didn't see any blue sky until the last day. But you cannot have everything and we are delighted with our stay, which just passed far too quickly!
Séverine R. - 31/01/2015
“Another big thank you”
We had an excellent stay, and the chalet played a large part in making it so enjoyable. Breakfast on the terrace was a joy and we will never tire of the magnificent views. We loved playing board games with the family in front of the crackling fire – I hope we can come back.
Stéphanie D. - 23/08/2014
A good week’s holiday in a pleasant chalet in a very good location.
Ameye F. - 02/08/2014
Weather not great but still a fantastic holiday. The changing clouds and weather are facinating. La Clusaz is a lovely town. Thank you!
Family N. - 26/07/2014
“A wonderful week in this marvellous chalet.”
Comfortable and wonderfully furnished, in a spectacular location. Plenty of long walks, skiing, and superb mountain food. Returning to Luxembourg with fresh air in our lungs and some very happy memories. Pierre the manager was extremely helpful and full of useful information. Very friendly service at all the local shops and restaurants, especially La Randonnée ski hire down the road.
Sarah H. - 15/02/2014
“Exceptional quality of stay and perfect service”
We spent a week at chalet Margueron and everything was amazing. The quality of this place is exceptional and Pierre's perfect service made it a dream. We had everything we need to just enjoy our holiday with our friends and family. Thanks for everything, we'll probably come back next year.
