Welcome to our chalet here in the fantastic French Alps! We’re located near the Swiss border just over an hour from Geneva airport (10 minutes from Evian) in the very friendly and welcoming French alpine village of Thollon Les Memises. The village sits on a plateau at around 1000 meters overlooking Lac Leman (aka Lake Geneva) with the ‘Memises’ mountains behind.
In the summer, there are plenty of treks and trails for walking and mountain biking, for all levels of ability. You can paraglide from the top of the Memises down to the village or all the way to the lake, on your own or in tandem. You can eat out or just rest at the local restaurants while taking in the magnificent views of the lake and mountains. The local tourist office also runs various excursions and local artisan visits in and around the village. You could just find somewhere to sit down with a picnic and enjoy the serenity. Using Thollon as a base, there are many more local attractions to 'day trip' to around the mountains and the lake including swimming, skiing, site seeing, rafting etc etc...
During the winter the mountains become the ski area and are ideal for learning and for intermediate skiers, especially for families. Prices are very reasonable compared to the more ‘well known’ resorts. Once you’ve ‘warmed up’ you can always try the other nearby skiing for all levels of ability. The various hotel and family run restaurants and bars cater for quick snacks to bistro to intimate dining. There’s also local supermarkets and a bakery with most, if not all, of what you might need.
Our modern chalet is located in the centre of the village at the end of the main ski run down to the village (50 metres from the ski lift) with great views of the lake and mountains. We also offer very competitive transfers (whether you stay with us or not) . . .
