Location

Location

Chalet Riviere is located in a quiet hamlet above the village of La Riviere Enverse. Surrounded by nature and offering stunning views over the Giffre valley, the chalet is ideally located for a peaceful holiday to the Alps.

It is only a short 5-minute drive to local restaurants, bars and the nearest supermarket. The chalet is also within easy driving distance of the main Morillon telecabine, which provides access to the impressive Grand Massif ski area, comprising of Samoëns, Flaine, Les Carroz and Sixt.

The beautiful Lac Bleu is also located only a few kilometres from the chalet and boasts a vast array of leisure facilities. During winter, this is where you will find the ice skating rink. Depending on snow conditions there is also some excellent cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing trails.

In the warmer months, Lac Bleu is a hive of activity. Swim in the lake under the watchful eye of lifeguards, or zip through the trees in the fabulous Les Aventuriers du Lac’s high ropes course. There’s also a playground and giant inflatable kids park, pony rides, beach volley ball, tennis courts and mini golf. Or enjoy a refreshing drink on the sunny terrace of La Covagne, the friendly bar/restaurant overlooking the lake.

If you’re a keen walker, you can hike to Morillon and Lac Bleu in approximately 40-minutes. Or enjoy one of the many other nearby hiking and mountain bike trails.

If that’s not enough to keep you occupied, Chalet Riviere is also ideally located for exploring the other quaint, alpine villages of the Giffre valley, all of which are within a 5 to 10-minute drive.

This is our third booking with Alps Accommodation. We have always found them to be very efficient and will definitely be booking again in the future.

We had an absolutely wonderful week. The chalet is charming, well equipped and immaculate, in an idyllic location. We were reluctant to leave and I really missed the view this morning! There is so much to do in the surrounding area. Thank you for such a memorable week, we have already recommended you to friends and we hope to return in the future.

Well what an amazing stay! We've had wall-to-wall sunshine all week, learnt to ski and had a fabulous time living in this beautiful chalet in an amazing setting. It's been absolutely perfect in every way. Thank you.

Darnbrook family, Chalet Riviere, March 2012

What can we say?! We have had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful chalet, in such a perfect location. Would love to return, perhaps in the winter, to this cosy, well-equipped chalet. Thank you.
