When you stay at rustic Chalet L'Otavalo, you'll enjoy all the rural delights of life on a farm, but it's just 1km to the charming village of Manigod, where you'll find a restaurant which does takeaway food, a local speciality food store, a popular bakery and a great cafe.

The accommodation is all on one floor of this delightful renovated farmhouse, while the owners' brother lives in a basement apartment with its own access. The owners themselves live in a modern chalet opposite Chalet L'Otavalo, and there's another rental property on the farm, it's a family affair. 

There are cows grazing in the field opposite most of the year, and guests are very welcome to watch the cows being milked at the family farm next to Chalet L'Otavalo. The milk is used to make the famous Reblochon cheese. There are also chickens and donkeys on the farm. Children will love the table football, trampoline and swings and there is plenty of room for them to run around outside. 

There are sheltered terraces on either side of the property, where you can barbecue and eat al fresco, or maybe enjoy a soak in the hot tub. There's also a lovely long vine and rose-covered balcony at the front of the chalet, with superb views over the Aravis mountains.

There's room for eight guests at Chalet L'Otavalo, which has been recently refurbished, and it's all on one floor.

There are three double bedrooms, one of which has a small en suite shower room, and a small bunk room for two children. There's also a separate bathroom, and two separate toilets. 

The large kitchen and dining area is a very sociable place to cook and eat together, there's also a dining table in the living room, which runs the length of the chalet - here you can enjoy a cosy evening on the sofas around the woodburner while you watch a film or plan your next exciting day in the mountains.

There are two sheltered terraces, one on either side of the property, where you can barbecue and eat al fresco, or maybe admire the stunning views while you enjoy a soak in the hot tub. There's also a lovely long rose and vine-covered balcony at the front of the chalet, with superb views over the Aravis mountains.

We think Chalet L'Otavalo will be the perfect choice for families, or a group who enjoy taking life at a slower pace, while still having the facilities of the village within easy reach.

Chalet L'Otavalo is just 10 minutes from the Croix Fry sector of the La Clusaz pistes (altitude 1500m), where you can park free. The ski bus stops just 600m from the chalet.

There are plenty of gentle nursery slopes, where beginners can build confidence, while experienced skiers have access to more than 200km of pistes and 95 lifts in the La Clusaz/Le Grand Bornand area.

Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails on the nearby Beauregard plateau, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with an ice skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

In the summer, you’ll find no shortage of things to do when you stay at Chalet L'Otavalo. There are plenty of walks, from mountain hikes to gentle plateau paths, and you can take the ski lift to the top of the mountains and come back down at your own pace.

Children will enjoy the delights of the farm on your doorstep, while there are tree-top adventure parks for all the family at Thônes and Le Grand Bornand, and a beautiful lakeside golf course at Annecy.

Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via ferrata, mountain-biking or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod.
