About Elegance Lodge ...
This unique split-level chalet in the fabulous Les Confins area is just 2km from the bars, shops and restaurants of La Clusaz, at the heart of the Lake Annecy ski resorts.
But despite being so close to this year-round resort, the lodge’s elevated position means you can enjoy privacy as well as uninterrupted views over the Aravis mountains, and the superb pistes of La Balme.
Built in 2004, the lodge’s unusual design makes the most of its sloping plot, combining high vaulted ceilings with intimate spaces where a large group of family or friends can enjoy each other’s company.
Three south-facing terraces mean you can always find your own place in the sun, or catch up on the day over a glass of wine in the hot tub.
When you stay at Elegance Lodge you’ve got the best of the mountains right on your doorstep, what ever the time of year.
The property ...
Elegance Lodge is set over three main floors, with smaller mezzanine floors to make imaginative use of every available space.
Sleeping 10 adults and two children, there are three bathrooms and five double bedrooms (although all of the beds can be separated into singles if necessary), as well as a windowless children’s bedroom with two single beds.
Underfloor heating means there’s always a warm welcome waiting, and plenty of light wood, fur throws and natural fabrics make this a very easy place to relax.
The TV lounge is separate from the sumptuous main seating area, which is the perfect place to relive the highlights of the day - sink in to the sofas in front of the open fire and enjoy a glass of wine with friends. Unless you prefer to enjoy the bubbles of the hot tub!... The sleek kitchen makes preparing a meal a delight, and the breakfast bar means the cook needn’t be short of company.
If you’re looking for somewhere to make the most of all the Alps have to offer, Elegance Lodge will tick all your boxes.
About the area ...
Elegance Lodge overlooks the popular La Balme ski field in La Clusaz, and is just 2km from the ski lift. Parking is free, but if you don’t want to take the car, the ski bus stops 200m from the chalet, putting the whole of the Annecy ski resorts at your disposal - your Aravis ski pass will give you access to more than 220km of perfect pistes and 95 lifts.
Cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers will find great terrain at the Lac des Confins and the nearby Beauregard plateau.There’s always somewhere new to discover, but if you fancy a change from the pistes, it’s just a short drive to La Clusaz village, where you’ll find an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor pools and a spa centre, and a cinema. If you’re looking for a challenge, try sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides, all within a few miles of your cosy chalet.
Of course the chalet is the perfect base for participating in the fun that is the Défi Foly weekend to round of the ski season each year La Clusaz style!
When the owners of Elegance Lodge were looking for the perfect place to build their holiday home, they wanted somewhere that offered their family plenty to do all year round. La Clusaz was the perfect place, with as many activities in summer as in winter.
Go wild in the mountains or relax in the jacuzzi at your stylish chalet - the choice is yours. There are plenty of gentle walks from Elegance Lodge, or you can take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking.
There’s a tennis club, golf course and driving range, riding centre just up the road at Lac des Confins, where you can of course also fish in the lake, and other activities within easy reach of La Clusaz include white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Annecy are just 40 minutes drive away, making it a great place for a day out - you can swim and fish in the lake, windsurf or just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.
If Elegance Lodge ticks all the boxes for your holiday in the French Alps, check our calendar to see which weeks are free - we are happy to hold the dates for you for 24 hours while you check with the rest of your party. But don't wait too long - this property is very popular with our guests.

From the Owner
An idyllic spot just outside the village, amongst local people, with spectacular views across the 'Col des Aravis'...
“We would like to welcome you to the aptly named “Elegance Lodge” and hope you have an unforgettable stay in our beautiful chalet. In the summer of 2002, whilst on holiday with very good friends in the South of France, conversation and thoughts kept on returning to the fantasy of finding a “dream holiday home” in France. Once we returned from our holiday we decided to turn the dream into a reality and began searching in earnest. Having always been fascinated by the mystique of the mountains, fond of long mountain walks and swimming in lakes, we set our sights on the Alps as being perhaps the ideal location. We focused on several areas: The Portes du Soleil; the area to the east of Switzerland; and the high mountains of France. We decided to base ourselves somewhere central to each of these areas, in an area which was unfamiliar to us at the time, La Clusaz. Keen to begin we booked ourselves into a hotel that summer, it was a key criteria for us that the location should be as beautiful in the summer as in the winter. We split our time between looking at properties and having fun with our two kids. Personally we were disappointed with the Portes du Soleil; the architecture was too modern, the area too crowded. We found the Swiss mountains to be densely populated, and too touristy. Some locations in the French mountains were fantastic in winter, but not as interesting during summer.
Each time we returned to La Clusaz we enjoyed the great atmosphere and the children loved the activities on offer: hiking, cross-country cycling, golf, swimming in Lake Annecy and even paragliding! We realised we had stumbled across a location which was as fabulous in summer as in winter, and so we decided to try our luck in La Clusaz. We even knew exactly which part of La Clusaz was our ideal location, an idyllic spot just outside of the village, amongst local people, with spectacular views across the “chaîne des Aravis”. There was only one slight problem, there were no properties available in our desired location! We spent two weeks trawling the real estate agencies, developers and notaries, before we struck lucky. The call came in announcing that a plot of land with planning permission had become available. The project to build a permanent home for the MD of an important French business had been called off at the last minute, were we interested.
Here was a plot of land with planning permission for a beautiful residence not 400 meters from our “ideal spot”. We were seriously interested! We loved the project and the chalet was built in 2003/2004 under the professional management of an architect from Annecy, with the help of local craftsmen. We moved into the chalet during the summer of 2004, and since then have enjoyed many very happy holidays with family and friends in our second home, across all seasons. Nothing beats enjoying a fine wine by the fireplace, with beautiful music in the background, whilst in pleasant company. In 2012 we made the decision to welcome others to our chalet, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the experience as much as we always do.

“Ideal break from the city”
The chalet was fabulous and check in was quick and efficient. The views from the chalet balcony were stunning and just what we needed as part of our break away from the city.

“A comfortable chalet”
Comfortable seating areas. Comfortable beds. Easy access from the road when it snowed. Big garage for storing skis and boots.
We enjoyed the nice village, the good skiing,and the good ski school.
It would have been great if there had been a more storage in bedrooms for clothes and toiletries.

“We're La Clusaz Fans!”
A really lovely holiday in the quiet, cosy and comfortable setting of Chalet Elegance. We were welcomed warmly by Mandy, and the little attention to detail was appreciated. The panoramic view is beautiful and we loved the hot tub after skiing. We would have liked a little more visibility when parking on the side of the road. We were already fans of La Clusaz, so we'll be back, for sure!

“A really good service”
A magnificent chalet in a really good location. It is very spacious, tastefully decorated and with good quality furnishings. It offers a good level of comfort in a great setting for an unforgettable holiday. The bed linen is excellent and the chalet is very well equipped. The spa is a real advantage after a day's skiing, and the ski bus stops very close to the chalet. We were welcomed by a very charming and helpful lady. The only problem - because we were enjoying ourselves so much time passed far too quickly. A holiday to be repeated very soon.
Fabien T. - 14/01/2017
We loved the whole experience of the lodge the privacy but yet not far from amenities. Remark: you definitely would need transport. The hot tub was great to have after the skiing. We loved everything in the area, the restaurants especially: there was a great variety also near the slopes

“A luxurious chalet”
We had a great week in this luxurious chalet, which was very comfortable and well equipped (washing machine, dryer and even sledges and back-packs for the kids!). The quality of the jacuzzi is a bonus and the view from the chalet is magnificent. The village is charming and there is skiing for all abilities.

“We had a great week. ”
Elegance Lodge is a luxury chalet which is spacious and well-equipped. It enjoys a spectacular view over the Aravis mountains.

“Looking forward to come back!”
Thank you very much for a lovely week in your wonderful chalet. We appreciate the nice atmosphere of your mountain chalet, as well as the spectacular view of the mountains around. The place is very well equipped and cosy. Everything was perfect. We look forward to return to your nice place during next seasons ( winter and summer).
Mr M. - 09/02/2013
We spent a wonderful holiday in a dream chalet! To watch the stars lighting up one by one in the warmth of the hot tub was simply an unforgettable experience! The village is lovely and the ski slopes are very varied, ideal for a family of skiers with different style, competence and level. We'll be back!
Christelle B. - 02/02/2013
“Your chalet is very nice, tastefully decorated and with all items of good quality.”
We spent a wonderful week here in La Clusaz and really appreciate being here in your very comfortable chalet. Your chalet is very nice, tastefully decorated and with all items of good quality. Even with seven of us, we were very comfortable. It is a great place in a superb location. Thank you and best wishes.
Family B. - 02/02/2013
“A real WOW effect!”
We had a wonderful time in la Clusaz in a perfect located chalet with a beautiful southfaced view. The chalet is a 5 star cosy and elegant property with nice furniture and fully equipped. For our taste it could not be better - everything was perfect! Normally we stay only in 5 star hotels all over the world, but in this chalet I had a wow effect: so we stayed more in the chalet than outside! However we loved the ski area, the winter trails in Manigod, and the proximity to Megeve and Geneva for the shopping!
Dietrich F. - 22/12/2012
“An excellent address”
We have often stayed at the ELEGANCE LODGE. The splendid view from the chalet on the 'Chaîne des Aravis' is unforgettable. Facing south the sun is shining on the terraces all day. The chalet is very comfortable and cosy. With its many bedrooms it is an excellent address for 10 to 12 persons.
Kalker F. - 20/07/2012
“The name of this chalet says it all! ”
Itï¿½s a wonderful place to be and to gather as a family. We got everything we expected from this place... and even more! My daughters and I enjoyed the luxurious and comfortable atmosphere of this chalet located in the heart of a breathtaking landscape. Weï¿½ll be back for sure!
Ilma B. - 19/05/2012
“Wonderful ski vacations”
We have enjoyed several wonderful ski vacations with friends in “Elegance Lodge”. This well equipped, luxurious chalet is spacious with a lot of privacy, but yet intimate because of the split level. The rooms are very pleasant with nice atmospheric lighting and a beautiful view. After a long day of skiing on the numerous ski runs (only a three minute drive away) you can enjoy a good night’s rest thanks to the quiet environment.
Van R. - 10/03/2012
“Can't wait to go back!”
A spectacular mountainside view was the first thing I saw while entering the open, yet cosy living space, where the scent of delicious food prepared from the kitchen lingered. It was the most welcoming scene to lay my eyes upon and to experience it every day was a privilege. Every holiday in this chalet was wonderful and I cannot wait to go back.
Aletta B. - 25/02/2012
“It feels like home, only better!”
With three families of 14 people in total we stayed in this marvelous chalet several years between Christmas and New Year. It's always a great pleasure to arrive and be welcomed by the beautiful furnished chalet and its surroundings. From the chalet it's a three minute drive to the Balme, where you can easily park your car. We very much like skiing in la Clusaz knowing that at the end of the day the warmth of the chalet is waiting. This is a chalet so well equiped that it feels like being at home (or even better!). I would absolutley recommend this chalet to everyone.
