Once you are here, just park up the car and forget it! Chalet Joubarbe is on the edge of the village of Chinaillon (300m), so it's just a short stroll to fetch fresh bread from the boulangerie in the morning or for a tasty local meal in the evening. Le Grand Bornand / Chinaillon resort has a Famille Plus rating, which means there is always something going on to keep the kids busy.
The chalet itself has been extensively renovated, so you'll have all the comforts of home in this stunning setting, and the owners have an office nearby, so are always available to answer any questions.
The large light-filled living area on the first floor of Chalet Joubarbe makes the most of the fabulous views, and opens on to a large sunny terrace so you can get even closer to the mountains.
There’s room for more than one chef in the well-equipped kitchen, so you can share the cooking before all sitting down to eat at the huge dining table. After dinner, retire to the cosy leather sofas where you can watch a film on the big screen TV complete with surround sound or enjoy the night sky from the furnished terrace.
If you'd rather, you could play a game of table football or read on the mezzanine, or just plan the next day in the beautiful Aravis region around the fire.
With five bedrooms and three bathrooms set over three floors, there’s plenty of room for up to 13 people - and possibly two other guests if needed! There are two double bedrooms and a twin room on the first floor, where you will also find a shower room and a utility room. On the top floor, one room has a double bed, a single bed and a pair of bunk beds while the other has three single beds. There's also a shower room on this floor as well as the games room.
ABOUT THE AREA ...
It’s just a 700m walk from Chalet Joubarbe to the ski lift, but if you’d rather save your energy for the slopes, the ski bus stops at the end of the drive every 15 minutes.
With your Aravis ski pass, you’ve got all the Lake Annecy ski resorts at your disposal - more than 200km of perfect pistes. Even closer is a great sledge run and the start of the cross-country ski piste. Beginners in this sport will love the nearby Evo Nordic Park, which has a circuit featuring a variety of terrains, while boarders will appreciate the Snowpark. Our partner shop Rêves d'Hiver can deliver your skis to the chalet, come to the property to help you choose your equipment or even pick you up and drive you to their shop to benefit from their professional advise. Discounts and free ski store available.
Non-skiers can go ice-skating or swimming in La Clusaz, where the heated indoor and outdoor pools are open all year round, or try snowshoeing, sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
At the end of a busy day, head back to your cosy chalet, hang up wet clothes in the drying room ready for another day, and relax in the sauna.
In the summer, children will enjoy playing in the play park with swings, a climbing wall, slides etc which is shared with children staying at three chalets owned by the same owners. A network of walking and biking trails cover the mountains around Chalet Joubarbe, and you can pick up a route map for either at the tourist office in Chinaillon.
No doubt you'll manage to get close to local mountain goats and groundhogs around the nearby Colombière pass! There’s a fantastic swimming pool complex in Le Grand Bornand, with a restaurant and grassy areas for picnics.
If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, there’s a climbing school, via ferrata routes, a tree-top adventure park, canyoning, white-water rafting and paragliding all nearby.
August sees the International Children’s Festival in Le Grand Bornand - a week of puppet shows, circus acts and workshops, with a grand firework finale. You’re in the heart of Reblochon country, so on your travels don’t forget to pick up some of this delicious cheese from a local farm or market!
