Chalet Larrouzé is a semi-detached chalet in a wonderful location. Standing in a large private garden you have spectacular views of the Giffre valley and surrounding countryside from either of the two south-facing balconies or large paved terraces. Overlooking the garden a luxurious hot tub sits in complete privacy on the rear, south-facing terrace.
With features dating back to almost 200 years, the stunning 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom chalet is a fusion of traditional and modern luxury, providing guests with a truly unique holiday experience. Arriving at the chalet is like stepping back into time. The country lane ends and as you climb out of your car and stand before the chalet’s large garden you notice nothing but the quiet solitude of nature and perhaps the sound of water flowing in the stream nearby. Semi-detached, the chalet itself is a vision of yesteryear – beautiful stonework and classic Savoyard architecture.
The west-facing terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a late afternoon BBQ or soak up the last of the day’s sun as you watch the kids play in the garden below. Dotted with fruit trees, the large and sunny garden is the perfect place for a summer picnic. It’s also a children’s paradise. Come summer or winter there is ample space to play and build snowmen and a very gentle slope on one half of the garden provides excellent sledging terrain.
There is private off-road parking for up to two cars. Additional cars can be parked for free in the communal spaces at the bottom of the lane, just a short walk away. In winter, during heavy snowfall we recommend you use the communal spaces.
Chalet Larrouzé is located in the peaceful surrounds of Secouen d’en Bas, a tiny hamlet with a rich history situated just a few minutes’ drive from the villages of Samoëns and Morillon. The chalet sits in an enviable south-facing position at the end of a quiet country lane. Surrounded by nature and affording spectacular views over the Giffre Valley, Chalet Larrouzé provides an idyllic setting for your year-round alpine holidays.
The chalet is the perfect summer holiday destination, with a number of hiking and mountain bike trails right on your doorstep. Hike all the way up to the Bourgeoise summit and enjoy views over the entire Giffre valley. The same trail continues on to the famous Col de Joux Plane with its pretty lake and stunning views of Mont Blanc. Or stroll through green pastures then down to the shaded banks of the Valentine stream.
In winter, you can access our vast skiing domain with ease. Both the Grand Massif Express in Samoëns and the Morillon telecabine are within a 6-8-minute drive. You will require a vehicle at this property but parking is available. The access road is also cleared of snow during winter, although snow tyres and chains are a must. Private parking is available at the chalet with additional communal spaces at the bottom of the lane just a short walk away. If there is heavy snowfall we recommend you use these free communal parking spaces. Parking at the ski lifts and in the nearby villages is also free.
Samoëns village with its many shops, bars and restaurant, medieval town square, beautiful church and ancient buildings is only a short drive away. Samoëns boasts an impressive ice-skating rink and bowling alley and you won’t want to miss the bustling Wednesday morning market, one of the biggest in the region.
Morillon is also just a few minutes’ drive from the chalet. There, you will find even more shops and restaurants and the beautiful Lac Bleu, which boasts an array of leisure facilities.
