Manigod - La Clusaz

Set in one of the most beautiful Alpine valleys, the village of Manigod is a mountain secret that is a delight to discover.

With its own ski area linking into the famed La Clusaz ski resort, Manigod offers fabulous skiing in winter and world class cycling in the summer.

Beautiful chalets are dotted around the mountains, restaurants range from local auberges to Michelin starred, and you can buy locally made pottery and cheeses fresh from the farm.

The OVO Network Review

Chalet La Croix Méridionale is a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom chalet for 10, spread over 3 floors and across 250m2.

Situated in Combource at the end of the beautiful Manigod valley, Chalet La Croix Méridionale is perfect for those wanting to recharge their batteries while relaxing in a comfortable, spacious chalet with stunning views.

With an exterior hot tub, a sauna, two lounges, and a separate TV lounge, there are plenty of great facilities, and lots of space throughout for all to enjoy.

Any chefs in the group will enjoy working in the well-equipped open plan kitchen. The shaded outdoor terrace, accessible from the chalet or the balcony, is ideal for alfresco dining in warmer weather, for taking coffee while watching the snow fall, breathing in the fresh air after a spectacular summer storm, or appreciating the sunsets.

The Alps are a weather watcher's paradise all year round!

Four of the five spacious bedrooms have en suite shower rooms; the fifth is also a double room. If you prefer taking a bath, there is a luxurious roll top bath in the fifth bathroom.

On a practical note each floor has an independent wc.

Out of doors there are walks from the door, open views and very few neighbours.

Some may see the splendid isolation as a drawback - shops, restaurants, and the slopes are a drive away. Others will enjoy the privilege of being able to enjoy the Alpine countryside at its best.

The roads are cleared during the winter by the local commune, but cars must be appropriately equipped for winter weather conditions.

Guests with toddlers might prefer to wait until the little ones are asleep before using the contemporary suspended fireplace. Very young children may need extra supervision on the open tread stairs.

“We feel truly privileged to be the owners of La Croix Méridionale.”

“ We feel truly privileged to be the owners of La Croix Meridionale.

When the opportunity arose for us to purchase land upon which we could build a chalet to our specification we were delighted. While we wanted a chalet which from the outside looked like a traditional chalet, we were very keen indeed that it was modern, open and captured as much as was possible of the fantastic views.

It was important to us that on the main floor of the chalet, the living area was open plan and had a wrap around veranda in order to maximise the natural light and the views of the valley and mountains. The chalet faces south and is bathed in light all day.

The galley kitchen and breakfast bench was designed to enable those doing the cooking to socialise as well. We decided to purchase leather sofas and chairs and place them in two specific areas so those that wanted to chat could while those who wanted to curl up with a book and a drink by the suspended fireplace were also able to do so on the main floor.

The undercover balcony on the main floor faces west so that in the summer, we are able to be under cover during the heat of the day while lunching yet have the evening sun shining in as guests either have drinks or dinner outside as the sun sets behind Tournette, the mountain that separates the valley from the Annecy lake. As the chalet was designed to be a comfortable family home we were keen that each of the bedrooms was of good size.

Upstairs we have two double bedrooms.

One has a shower room and the other has use of a large bathroom.

The oversized bath is placed under the skylight so you can soak away the day while watching the stars. Both share a small balcony with great views.

A perfect parents' retreat ! Also upstairs is the games room with a TV connected to a DVD player with lots of films. We spend many a happy family evening after dinner spread out on the leather sofa and bean bags watching comedies. On the lower level we have 3 bedrooms.

The largest double bedroom in the chalet and the room with two single beds both have their own shower rooms.

The 5th bedroom has twin beds and the occupants are able to use the shower in the jacuzzi room along the corridor. The jacuzzi can hold 5 people in comfortable and is a great way of winding down after a day of skiing or walking.

Our personal preference is to use the sauna to soothe tired legs. The main entry to the chalet is into an entrance hall where we have a placed a bench so you can remove outdoor shoes and boots.

We have a boot warmer here so that wet ski boots and gloves can be dried (and then warmed up again the following morning before heading off to the slopes).

The chalet was finished in 2006 and we have been so happy with it ever since. We love it in all seasons and are only saddened by the fact that with busy professional lives, we are not able to be there nearly as much as we would like.

We have skiied at La Clusaz for 10 years. As a family we have had some truly memorable days traversing the 5 mountains that make up the La Clusaz ski area.

Starting from La Croix Fry, the closest station to the chalet, we usually ski a complete loop taking in all the ski areas including the Aiguille and Le Balme. Over the years alot of improvements have occurred with high speed chairs and telecabines being introduced throughout the area.

We also regularly head over to Le Grand Bornand which has some wide open pistes, perfect for younger children, as well as some large mogul runs. We always hire whatever equipment we need from the friendly staff at Intersport at Croix Fry.

In the summer there are a lot of fantastic walks from the chalet. Our favourite is the walk up Mt Charvin to the lake just beneath the summit. We always take a picnic.

From just above the lake you have a fantastic view across the Megeve valley to the Mt Blanc range - truly stunning on a clear day.

Another favourite walk from the chalet is up through the trees above to either Croix Fry or Merdassier for a well deserved lunch at one of the restaurants.

Our kids, now teenagers, still love the lake at Annecy in the summer. We usually hire a pedalo and head out to the middle of the lake to swim in the pure and amazingly warm water.

Annecy itself is wonderful and we inevitably end up coming back home to the chalet with fantastic cakes and tarts. While it is a family ritual to eat at least once at the Hotel du Commerce in Thones on every visit, and always have the gastronomique menu too, we prefer to spend most nights at the chalet enjoying the views.

We have hung in the chalet a large number of paintings we have bought while travelling the world including paintings from Cuba and Bali. A number of the paintings in the chalet are by Australian Aborigines, purchased in Australia while visiting relatives.

This is the reason why we decided to name the chalet La Croix Meridionale, the Southern Cross, after the constellation of stars seen only in the southern hemisphere and on the Australian flag. We do hope you love our Manigod home as much as we do. ”
