Off the beaten tracks

Once there, the feeling of being out in the open country is fully expressed ! Facing south, in front of the Torraz Mount, the topography of the surroundings excludes all vis-à-vis. On its west side, the terraces of the chalet offer a magnificent panorama of the Aravis range. Bordered by a charming stream that feeds it with spring water, surrounded by forests and pastures where cows come to graze in the summer season, the chalet offers an idyllic place to relax and breathe in the middle of a preserved nature while being not very far from the first shops of the village of La Giettaz and twenty minutes from La Clusaz, via the grandiose Aravis pass.
