About Lodge Les Fougeres ...
Perfectly situated in a in the heart of the mountains, Lodge Les Fougeres is just five minutes drive from the bars and restaurants of La Clusaz.
Even closer, just 150m away, is some of the best skiing in the Lake Annecy ski resorts, making this the perfect ski in, ski out chalet for two families or a group of friends looking for a great holiday.
There are two good restaurants within five minutes walk, and the lodge has stunning views on every side.
The chalet has been extensively renovated, making the most of local reclaimed timber and stone, giving it a typical Savoyard style with a classy contemporary edge.
The property ...
This beautiful chalet has been lovingly refurbished by its owners, who used local craftsmen to bring out the best of this typical Savoyard home.
Natural materials have been combined with a stunning open plan layout, so there’s plenty of space for everyone.
There are three double bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms, and a separate bathroom on the first floor, and the kids have the top floor all to themselves, with a bedroom sleeping four and a play area with TV. So while they are chilling upstairs, you can be preparing a meal in the well-equipped kitchen, catching up with friends in front of the fire, or relaxing in the hot tub under a star-filled sky.
The dining table is big enough for everyone to get together for a meal and plan the next unforgettable day in La Clusaz.
About the area ...
Nestled between Le Cret du Merle, Etale and Beauregard, you are just metres away from some great skiing when you stay at Lodge des Fougères.
With the La Clusaz telecabine on your doorstep, and the ski bus just a few metres away, you have access to 220km of pistes and 95 lifts, all covered by the Aravis ski pass, so you will never be short of somewhere new to explore.
The Beauregard plateau is a great choice for cross-country skiers, and there’s lots to do for non-skiers too. There’s an ice-skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, or you could try sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in relaxation, let your cares float away in the village’s heated outdoor pool and spa. Whatever you choose to do, at the end of the day there’ll be a warm welcome waiting at Lodge Les Fougeres.
In the summer , the telecabine means you’re perfectly placed to enjoy all the summer sports the Aravis mountains have to offer. Hike into the Col des Aravis, or let the telecabine ferry you and your bike to the top, so you can come back down at your own pace.
Other activities available in the area include horse-riding, climbing, via ferrata and paragliding. The mountains around La Clusaz are criss-crossed with tracks and paths, so take a picnic and make a day of it.
The beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is just 30 minutes away by car, and is a great place for a day out. The lake is said to be the cleanest in Europe and in the summer it’s a lovely place for water sports, cycling, swimming or you can just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.
If you just want to relax, why not soak up the sun from the hot tub or balcony. Later, you can make the most of the long summer evenings at a local restaurant, or fire up the barbecue in the garden at Lodge les Fougeres.
If Lodge Les Fougeres ticks all your boxes for a holiday in the French Alps, check our calendar to see which dates are free - we can hold them for you for 24 hours if you need a little time to contact the rest of your party. But don't leave it too long - you don't want to miss out on your chance of a fabulous mountain holiday.

From the Owner
We fell in love with la Clusaz, the perfect holiday destination... and now we want to share it with others.
2012 is the year that Chalet Fougeres was reborn, returning to its roots as a warm revitalising home, with a calmness that will meet you as you arrive.
You are its welcome guests! When we discovered the chalet, we felt it was a haven of peace that was in a deep sleep waiting to be woken and loved and we were only too happy to oblige!!
Since then, its heart and soul have been reawakened, ready to welcome you – you will enjoy a memorable stay, whether skiing or via the telecabine, you are only 5 minutes from the village. Summer or winter, there are a number of charming local restaurants that await you, all close to the pistes.
Our friends, Marc-Andre and Katy, who have lived in La Clusaz for many years, persuaded us several years ago to spend our holidays in this great Haute Savoie resort – we fell in love with la Clusaz, the perfect holiday destination. In essence, it has been our memorable holidays with our children that have beckoned us back time and time again – and now we want to share it with others.
There is everything here to entice you – sun, magnificent mountains, deep valleys with the seasonal colours from summer deep green grass and flowers to its white winter coat-like covering…. All at its heart, a space full of richness, its people living in harmony with their surroundings.
We welcomed in the new year of 2012 in the Place de L’Eglise in the centre of La Clusaz, a magical moment – to be among the lanterns, candles and fireworks – we toasted the future with a glass of champagne. It was a fitting end of an era for our chalet and the beginning of a new adventure!
Little by little, the project has taken shape and the chalet has come to life once again. With our friends at Snow Lodge, and many local craftsmen using building methods that reflect and help preserve the environment, we have created a luxurious chalet, set off by the natural wood and stone that have been sourced locally in the Aravis region. It is our retreat, a long way from the hurly-burly of everyday life, a quiet space, perched on the south-west facing slope of the Cret du Merle.
The chalet is ideally situated and only a ten minute walk away, you will find the great pizzas and pastas of the restaurant “La Ferme”; the piste “La Ruade” is just over the road and a few minutes walk takes you to the top of the telecabine “La Patinoire” and the restaurant “Le Vieux Chalet” – one of the best in the resort. The chalet is also a short walk from a bus stop with regular buses to the centre of the village and all the other ski areas.
Lodge les Fougeres is at the centre of these great places, enjoying full sun all day, flooding the chalet thanks to the windows, doorways and balconies that adorn her aspect. We must not forget the “piece de resistance”, the outside Jacuzzi, surrounded by a terrace where you too can taste that glass of champagne gazing at the stars above.
We can only leave you to dream! We sincerely hope that you will appreciate your stay as much as we have and that you will return home at the end of your holiday refreshed and revived! Charles and Sophie Honnywill
Great place, perfect location, outstanding layout and very cozy thank you!
A great support team!

“A perfect holiday in the sunny Alps”
We had a marvellous week in the Lodge des Fougères! Ideally located, we were able to make the most of all the activities in La Clusaz. The chalet was very well equipped and the maintenance team were always there if we had any concerns. Thank you very much.

“You really get what you pay for !”
A beautifully appointed chalet in a very convenient location. Close enough to be able to walk to the village but far enough away to be peaceful. A fantastic 2 week summer stay and would love to see what it is like in winter. Snow Lodge couldn't have been more helpful before, during and after our stay. It was lovely to be met on arrival and there were lots of little bits at the lodge to make you feel welcome. For instance: the slippers provided were useful as when bare foot we did pick up an occasional splinter from the wood floors - nice touch !

“A remarkable stay”
We are real estate agents, and could see that this chalet had been carefully renovated, everything was to hand and very convenient, welcoming and comfortable. We felt so at home, and that is important!

“Everything was perfect”
We knew already this resort that offers a great range of activities to everyone!!
Anwar P. - 02/07/2016
“High standard rental”
We had a great time at the Chalet, which is beautiful and we found everything to be of a high standard which met or exceeded our expectations. We love la Clusaz and the proximity to the slopes was great.
Andrew M. - 20/02/2016
“A really exceptional chalet for unforgettable holidays!”
A beautifully renovated chalet (a mixture of rustic and modern), comfortable and well located. It's very easy to get to the pistes, even with children (a two-minute walk - really good for this resort), to the village by gondola, and it's a great starting point for some lovely walks if there is no snow. The children loved their own space on the third floor and the jacuzzi.

“A home away from home”
Wonderful chalet, ideally located. It felt like a home away from home. The interior decoration was very nice and the chalet very well equipped.

“What an excellent week!”
Nine of us spent a great week at Chalet Les Fougeres - two families with children aged from 8 to 21. We all got on really well - the chalet has all the space and the facilities we needed. Communication with the company before we arrived was great - my questions were answered quickly and efficiently. We got a very warm welcome and I particularly appreciated the flexibility regarding our departure time. The slopes were hardly five minutes walk away and in April most of the the ski buses were still running. We have been coming to La Clusaz for about 10 years and have nothing but praise for it - stunning and varied scenery, plenty of activities for all ages and abilities, peace and relaxation for those who want it but plenty of action for the others - a mountain town that preserves its simplicity and authenticity. Thank you to the owners for making us feel so at home.

“15 days in paradise”
A superb chalet that has been totally renovated. The location is great. We skied out in the morning and the non-skiers took the lift two minutes away from the chalet to get down to the village. A big thank you to Melanie for the welcome and her help. We'll see you again!
Yoan T. - 24/01/2015
Everything was perfect - the quality, the ambience, the people and the chalet. We'll be back soon. Thanks and well done.
