About Chalet Bonnevie...
The owners of Chalet Bonnevie put a lot of thought into choosing where to buy their dream chalet in the heart of the French Alps. But when they saw Chalet Bonnevie, they immediately fell in love with this pretty traditional home in Villards-sur-Thônes.
They immediately set about restoring it and furnishing it to their taste, and to four-star standards. They chose neutral tones, enhanced with personal touches to make the chalet warm and welcoming. They plan to add a sauna and replace the wood stove with a beautiful Savoyard fireplace. They will also replace the kitchen (these renovations will be finished by December 15, 2020) and create an outdoor swimming pool, measuring 9 x 3.5m for summer guests (available from May 2021).
You will love the breathtaking views of the valley and the surrounding mountains from the terrace at Chalet Bonnevie, as well as its quiet location just 3km from Villards-sur-Thônes. The village is ideally located between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, allowing you to make the most of all that the region has to offer, whatever the season.
Cyclists and skiers will appreciate the secure room where you can store sports equipment without cluttering the chalet.
Two families or a group of friends will find Chalet Bonnevie their ideal choice for their mountain holiday.
The chalet sleeps eight people in four bedrooms. There's a double room on the lower ground floor, with its own shower room. There's also a sauna on this floor and a laundry. There are three more bedrooms on the top floor: another double room, and two rooms that can be arranged with either large doubles or twin beds. This floor also has a large family bathroom, with a bath and a shower.
The comfortable living area on the ground floor has plenty of cosy seating and a large dining table - the perfect place to come together for cosy evenings around the open fire. Wifi and internet access makes it easy to keep in touch with home and check what's on in the La Clusaz area.
The lovely garden comes into its own in the summer months, when you'll want to eat outside on the huge sunny deck, take a dip in the pool, or perhaps soak your cares away in the hot tub.
About the area...
You couldn’t chose a more perfect location to make the most of the La Clusaz slopes. Halfway between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand ski resorts, you can ski somewhere new every day.
Your Aravis ski pass also covers the Manigod area, giving you 220km of pistes of varying levels to explore, as well as extensive off-piste action.
Non-skiers are well catered for too, and 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.
Get back to Chalet Bonnevie in time to soothe aching limbs in the hot tub under the night sky - no better end to the day!
In the summer, it won't be easy to tear yourself away from the idyllic garden, hot tub and pool at Chalet Bonnevie, but your efforts will be well rewarded!
There's so much to see and do in the La Clusaz area in the summer. St-Jean-de-Sixt is one of the few places where you can try Bun-J ride, a cross between ski jumping and bungee jumping. Other more traditional pastimes are available too - marked footpaths crisscross the mountains, many starting from the village, or you can explore by mountain bike or on horseback.
There are swimming pool complexes in Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Thônes, but 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.
The owners love cycling and skiing themselves; guests will appreciate the secure kit room with tools, bike stands etc. With impressive cycle route maps from the local Tourist Office, and a local company who will deliver/ collect bikes, sports fans will love Chalet Bonnevie.
If Chalet Bonnevie sounds like the perfect location for your next Alpine holiday, check your dates against our availability calendar. If you're not quite ready to book, we can hold up to two weeks for you for 24 hours. But don't leave it any longer - this beautiful chalet will be very popular with guests of OVO Network.
If you'd like to explore the wonderful scenery and activities of the French Alps, Chalet Bonnevie is a great choice.

But don't leave it any longer - this chalet is a popular choice with our guests!

From the owner
"We love life here!"
After many years hiking long distance paths along French valleys and across mountains, we discovered the magnificent Aravis region. We were looking for a place where we and our three daughters could recharge our batteries, a little haven of pleasure, tranquility and good air, far from the busy city life.
We've finally found our retreat, and we are so proud to be able to share it with you.
At the crossroads between La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, we found our ideal playground, with forests, mountain pastures, peaks, rivers, lakes and mountains where we could strike a balance between relaxation and sports.
Winter and summer, we visit the chalet to spend time with our family and friends. We love the uninterrupted view of Lachat and the neighbouring fields, we enjoy walking or biking along the trails, hurtling down the pistes, tasting the Savoyard cheeses - in short, we love life here!
Now, it's your turn to enjoy these places and to savour every moment. We hope that you will have an unforgettable holiday!

“Very nice cosy house”
This chalet was very comfortable with a nice design, and it was fenced which was great for our dog. The house is equipped with everything you need and Janelle the manager was always ready to help.
— Natalia R. Feb 2020
“A super chalet, perfect for eight people”
It's the little extras that make all the difference: the hot tub wtih a view of the mountain. A very lovely holiday, I recommend this location.

This is a nice chalet in a quiet location, with beautiful views on the surrounding countryside.
— Jean F. Jul 2019
“Brilliant two weeks”
Even though the weather was very rainy when we got here, we had fun playing in the garden and going for walks in our bellies! When the weather finally improved we did a beautiful cycle around Annecy Lake and then going swimming in its pristine water, first in Annecy, then in Sévrier at the local beach. We always love being here and it's always hard to leave!
— Sophie G. Jun 2019
“Thank you for a memorable stay”
I had a great time, and I loved the hot tub and the superb views. There is no doubt I will return.
— Neha S. May 2019
“Thank you for your hospitality”
Janelle the manager was very helpful and easy to access when needed. The chalet is amazing and we found everything we wanted. Spending cosy evenings by the fire with our family was priceless, as was enjoying bubbles in the jacuzzi. On a side note we recommend the restaurants Le Vieux Chalet on the La Clusaz slopes, and Le Cabanon in St Jean de Sixt.
— Daria S. Dec 2018
“A dream Christmas”
Our family had the most terrific Christmas at Chalet Bonnevie. The surroundings are exceptional, the equipment is top quality (the hot tub was a luxury). Everything was just as we had hoped. Thank you for everything, especially the Christmas tree and all the decorations, which made it feel so festive.
— Laia T. Dec 2018
“Two perfect weeks”
We had two great weeks - the last two weeks in August. Quiet, comfortable, and with lots of things to do in the area. We are very grateful for the kindness of Janelle, the manager, and Carl, who looked after the hot tub. We really loved the quiet, the hot tub and the chalet in general. The things we loved about the area were the walks, the restaurants (L'Outa, which was also recommended by the owners), and the activities. We recommend this comfortable chalet which is close to everything.
— Sandrine M. Aug 2018
“Lovely peaceful location”
Very comfortable bedrooms. Also very well equipped kitchen. Nice walks nearby and St Jean de Sixt was a sweet village.
— Alexandra H. Aug 2018
“I'd recommend this place with my eyes shut!”
This place is perfect - the location, the beautiful chalet, the decor and the situation, it's all just perfect. We received a warm welcome from Janelle on arrival, who was helpful throughout the holiday. It's the first time that the photos I have taken have been as good as the advert!
— Christophe N. Jul 2018
“A successful family holiday”
A cosy chalet, very cosy and welcoming. This location had everything we needed - job done! A big thank you to Janelle for her help, kindness and professionalism. We and the children loved our time in the hot tub ... a great family time. Thanks again. We'd love to come back!
— Remi P. Jul 2018
“This well-equipped chalet is a perfect home”
I recommend this chalet for the following reasons: the location (although you need a car to get to the ski slopes); cross-country skiing and sledging is available on the snowy slopes nearby; a cosy ambience; great equipment (washing machine and dryer, sheets and towels provided).
— Francoise C. Mar 2018
“A friendly resort and an extraordinary chalet”
La Clusaz is a friendly station and this chalet is just 10 minutes drive from the village - fantastic!. The property is very well planned, with a large living area and a first floor just for the bedrooms.
— Michel A. Feb 2018
This is our third visit to La Clusaz and once again it's been fantastic. Chalet Bonnevie is very welcoming and has more than enough room for our family of 5. The hot tub is a real bonus!! Many memories have been made. Skiing, the bakeries, the cheese, the wine, good food etc... We will return again.
— Stephen S. Feb 2018
“Perfect alpine get-away!”
We had a really lovely family holiday at Chalet Bonnevie. The chalet was beautiful and very cosy and welcoming; perfect for an alpine get away! The hot tub with its spectacular view was a particular delight! The manager, Janelle, was really lovely also - very responsive and helpful.
— Tim R. Feb 2018
“Just like home”
Everything was very well thought out. The chalet is extremely practical and very welcoming Everything had been taken care of for a great holiday and a home from home: logs for the fire; a very comfortable sofa; great bed linen; a useful garage where you can leave your ski gear and a boot warmer to make sure your feet were always warm. The jacuzzi was warm too. Janelle was very helpful when we needed her. There is a fantastic view of the mountains, an enclosed garden and a quiet location. Everything in the chalet was perfect. Bonuses were the proximity to the village of La Clusaz (where we skied).
— Chloé D. Jan 2018
“Our second family ski trip here!”
Chalet Bonnevie was even more beautiful than the last time we stayed here! We loved the now sand blasted timber cladding on the exterior. We had a wonderful ski holiday here. So cosy and welcoming. Plenty of great skiing, eating and drinking, and a hot tub to come back to for the aching muscles!! Surrounded by nature, we enjoyed the view and sun setting over the mountains... absolute heaven. We're looking forward to our next visit to Chalet Bonnevie.
— Nicole S. Jan 2018
“We will come back!”
We will come back!
This is our third visit to this chalet, which is always lovely! We will probably come back again next year. We loved the amenities, being close to nature, having the slopes nearby, the practicality of the chalet and the cosy atmosphere. The wonderful countryside and being so close to Annecy are real bonuses.
— Marie J. Jan 2018
“A nice chalet”
We loved the location, the spa and the deck.
The main bathroom is gorgeous. And the kitchen is very well equipped.
We really enjoyed the quietness, and the outdoor spaces in the surroundings.
— Jude B. Dec 2017
“A great Christmas”
We have had a great Christmas in the chalet. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children and the chalet was the perfect size for us. Everything necessary was provided and we didn't feel like something is missing.
We all enjoyed the Jacuzzi and the snow in the garden. It was great that someone took care of the private road and the driveway when it was snowing.
Overall it was a great holiday and we definitely would go back if the opportunity arise.
— Dimitar S. Dec 2017
Great location for walks, very peaceful neighborhood. We loved the hot tub and the whole master bathroom.
— Alex E. Sep 2017
“The best chalet”
We rented Chalet Bonnevie last summer for 4 weeks and returned this summer for 5 weeks. It is the best chalet we've rented in the Aravis. The location, facilities, secure gardens, privacy, peace and quiet and stunning views make it a fabulous place to stay.
— Pamela & James M. Jul 2017
Only one week in this paradise in France is way too short. We will never forget this beautiful chalet in the lovely mountains.
As ever the Jacuzzi is fabulous just as the view. There is a lot to see and to do in the area.
So we hope to go back to this chalet one days.
— Annelieke V. Jul 2017
“Comfort, snow and medals”
We spent 15 days at your charming chalet. It was very comfortable, and everything was good quality (the bed linen, the sofa, the boot-warmer, the clothes dryer). The decor inside and out had been done thoughtfully and tastefully and it was lovely to sit down at a well-presented table for a family meal. The bedrooms are cosy and practical, with everything we needed, including a radio alarm. The jacuzzi on the terrace in the snow made for some very lovely moments. My son loved the games console with lots of games. Thanks to Janelle for being so helpful during our stay. We also thank you for having ordered the snow for our stay, without which the children would not have won their medals!
— Amandine F. Jan 2017
“We had a truly wonderful week here at the end of August.”
The chalet was beautiful, spacious and comfortable and everything had been thought about. The views from the chalet were breathtaking and being so peaceful our children were able to sleep late and treat us to some lie-ins. We had many great trips out including swimming and crazy golf in La Clusaz, Vitam water park, a trip up the Beauregard cable car and a fantastic meal in L'Outa. For our first family holiday with two young kids, it ticked all the boxes and we are already planning on brushing up on our French and returning next year. Thank you for everything!
— Lindsay H. Aug 2016
“The best Chalet we've ever rented!”
We've been staying in this area for over 16 years and chalet Bonnevie is the best Chalet we've ever rented. The beds are very comfortable and the chalet is very homely and well stocked with everything you need. The enclosed garden is great for the dogs and we really enjoyed the hot tub. We'll definitely be returning to Chalet Bonnevie. Thank you Eamonn and Clare.
— Pamela J. Jul 2016
“The chalet is comfortable and the view is amazing”
We had a really lovely week at the chalet. We came with three generations of the family and everyone enjoyed their holiday.
— Rozita F. Feb 2016
“Just as described”
We had an excellent stay at Chalet Bonnevie. Everything was just as described. However, snow chains are a must as when it snows, you will need them to get up the hill!
— Marie-Laure P. Feb 2016
“A great holiday”
We loved the decor, the jacuzzi, the warmth from the stove, as well as the lovely bathrooms. The chalet is close to La Clusaz and several shops are available in the area.
— Fanny D. Dec 2015
“Can't wait to return”
We've had a fabulous time in fantastic surroundings. The chalet is just beautiful, practical, comfortable and in a great location.
Annecy lake was brilliant as was the walking, white water rafting, paragliding and riding in the national park. Thank you for letting us stay in your chalet, we can't wait to return!!!
— Chris W. Jul 2015
