A Luxury Alpine Retreat

Alpine Chalet 1819 is a beautiful 200 year old Savoyard farmhouse, which has been sympathetically restored and refurbished by local craftsmen, to create a luxury chalet which offers both fully catered & self-catering accommodation for 6 – 9 guests. Situated in Vacheresse, in the beautiful Vallee d’Abondance, equidistant between Chatel & Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). Just over one hour’s transfer from Geneva airport, with the nearest slopes a mere 10 minutes drive, and Chatel, one of the main Portes du Soleil resorts only 25 minutes away, sitting on the Swiss border.

Your Hosts

Alpine Chalet 1819 is owner run – no seasonnaires! We are on hand to provide a personal service and advice. Whether it’s suggesting routes for skiing, arranging lessons and passes, organising ski and boot hire through valley experts, recommending the best restaurants – that’s all part of the service. We are not only your hosts – we are here to ensure that you get the most from your vacation. We are also fully qualified Nordic Walking instructors, and can include this as an option within your vacation package across both summer and winter breaks.
