Bring friends & family for an unforgettable holiday in the Alps
This fabulous spacious chalet in St-Jean-de-Sixt has just been renovated, and will make the perfect base for two or three families looking for a great base in the mountains. Sitting above the village, Chalet Flocon Magique has fabulous views on all sides, and is surrounded by fields where children can play safely. Halfway between the Lake Annecy ski resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, you really couldn’t pick a better location for a great holiday.There’s plenty of room for up to 12 people (10 adults), and two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, making it suitable for those with limited mobility. Facilities, too, are second to none, with a fabulous spa room with a sauna and state-of-the-art 5.5m counter-current pool, which is powerful enough to give even the most serious athlete a challenging workout, while still allowing families to relax in the jacuzzi section. It even filters and cleans its own water, changing the entire contents of the pool at least twice an hour!
This chalet offers the perfect mix of practicality & Savoyard charm
The focus of this luxury La Clusaz chalet is the double-height living area, which has fabulous views down the valley towards Thônes. A lot of thought has gone in to making this area perfect for a large group, with modular sofas that you can arrange however you like, under-floor heating, and a huge dining table so that you can all sit down to eat together. The kitchen has a range cooker and everything you need to cook up a feast. There’s a home cinema on the mezzanine level, leaving the ground floor seating area for those who want to relax around the fire. There is also a Playstation availble for video games fans! Sleeping arrangements are flexible too - there are five bedrooms with two double beds which can be separated into twins, and 4 single beds with pull-out beds beneath. Five bathrooms, four of them en suite, mean you won’t have to queue in the mornings! There is even a dedicated kit room which means that at the end of a hard day on the hill everyone can remove all of their wet kit, set boots to dry on the boot warmers, gloves on the glove warmers, there's a washing machine, tumble drier and sink. Everything can be ready to go again the following morning without mountains of boots, jackets and other gear cluttering up the rest of the chalet!
Your luxury home from home in a fabulous winter playground
Chalet Le Flocon Magique is ideally placed for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. Just grab your gloves, boots and skis from the chalet’s heated ski store and head for the snow-sure resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, just a few minutes drive away. These resorts are linked to Manigod by a regular ski bus and an Aravis ski pass covers all of them, giving you more than 200km of pistes to explore. There’s great terrain for cross-country skiers too. Non-skiers will find plenty to keep them occupied, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Thrill-seekers should head for the Bun-J-Ride in St-Jean-de-Sixt! Recharge your batteries at the end of the day in the sauna and swim-spa pool at Chalet Flocon Magique, where you can enjoy the fabulous view as you relax or work out.
Go wild in the mountains, or just relax and enjoy the fabulous view
Start the day with a sauna or an invigorating swim in Chalet Flocon Magique’s counter-current pool , then plan your day over breakfast on the sunny south-facing terrace. There’s no shortage of walks from Chalet Flocon Magique, from mountain trails to hiking on the Glières plateau, the scene of the Resistance’s campaign in World War II. Adrenalin junkies are well catered for too, with paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via ferrata, mountain-biking (bikes available at the chalet from Spring 2015) and white-water rafting just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of St-Jean-de-Sixt. After a fun-filled day, kids can let off steam in the fields, while the adults enjoy a quiet drink and watch the sun sink behind the mountains...
Luxury base for an great holiday at the heart of the Aravis
With such a perfect location, you could be forgiven for never leaving Chalet Flocon Magique, but there is so much more to explore. There’s a weekly market in St Jean de Sixt, or try the delicious Savoyard specialities at the local restaurants. There are more shops and restaurants in La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, less than 5km away, and the tourism office organises regular events where you can get involved in village life. The larger town of Thônes, just down the valley, offers more facilities and a couple of larger supermarkets. Don’t forget to visit medieval Annecy, just 30 minutes away, with its mix of canals, art, and Michelin-starred restaurants. At Lake Annecy, the cleanest lake in Europe, you can relax on a lakeside beach, try a range of watersports or hire a boat for a gentle cruise.

“December 2004, Saint-Jean-de-Sixt, and our first visit to La Mouille. An amazing thing happened. The sun was shining and everywhere was green - and then a snowflake landed on the tip of my son's nose. Then 2, 3, 4 - in two hours, the scene was transformed - a blanket of snow covered the fields and forest. Magic!
Since that day, we've not been able to stay away from this place, whatever the season. Saint-Jean-de-Sixt is a busy working village. The pharmacy and the lovely shopkeepers are there all year, even in low season. The ski slopes of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand are just five minutes away by car. La Mouille itself is peaceful, but there's plenty to do: you can go sledging in the fields; take the footpath opposite the chalet and walk or snowshoe to Danay, or just spend a quiet evening in front of the fire, admiring the magnificent view of the mountains and the valley. There's something for everyone here.
We find Chalet Flocon Magique enchanting, and we hope that you, like us, will find peace here during your holidays.
