Service

Chalet F’Net above St Gervais Mont Blanc, is one of the most romantic small chalets in the Alps . It nestles above the belle époque spa town of St Gervais and covers the vast domaine skiable covers the beautiful Megeve village with its medieval church and Savoyard architecture. The Chalet Fnet experience captures the bygone era of David Niven , wooden skis and aran sweaters. It is a great location whatever the season. At less than a hour’s drive from Geneva it couldn’t be easier to access this wilderness escape. Whatever your level it has something to offer those who want a more complete mountain experience.

This year - snow conditions are perfect coming into Christmas and whilst David, Chalet guardian has looked after many who have loved the experience - this year promises an ultimate thrill for those seeking a much better adventure on the 447 km of pistes or a short break of ski touring or just a chill out in the Chalet with its authentic wooden hot tub.

Chalet F’Net a former shepherd’s hut [chalet d’alpage], built in traditional stone and wood was beautifully-restored and extended by it’s owners in 2014. The chalet sits in its own hectare plot of mountain forest and old ski piste. It does not disappoint from the outside, and will surprise on the inside. The ground floor bedroom is extra generously-sized and has a cool zen-like lime washed feel, underfloor heating, en-suite bathroom and bio-ethanol fireplace. On the first floor there is a cosy open-plan living area and kitchen, fully-equipped and with a fully-rotating wood-burning stove. There is a selection of DVDs to play on the television, a music centre with aux cable to connect your own music device, and various games. The chalet is currently a wifi-free zone! Chalet F’net is a lovely space, truly off the beaten track, for real relaxation. Under the eaves upstairs there is super cosy more traditional bedroom attic with antique copper bath and zebra skin carpet and a view of the wonderful Chaine d’aravis mountains standing over the surrounding pine forest .

Chalet F’net, unique, crafted and secluded, has a guardien living next door in the mini Mazot to make your mountain dreams come true. His mission is to help you enjoy modern mountain hospitality with a flexible approach with Flexi catering. He can be as hands on or off as you please - it’s your holiday. David enjoys presenting simple and elegantly presented home cooked food- the mountain classics [tartiflette, raclette & fondue], spicy fusion dishes or heart-warming casseroles, together with a starter and a dessert. Good quality French wine is provided with dinner. If you want to go out though St Gervais is a melting pot of cuisine including the Michelin Starred Serac and LaTaniere a short hike up the mountain from the chalet and an exhilarating sledge run home. Or just stay in, uncork the wine, warm up a pizza and watch one of our films on the DVD player in front of a blazing fire.

David can help organise ski passes for St Gervais or Les Houches ski hire, organising back-country ski guides, snow-shoeing, sledging and igloo visits, and even a day trip the world famous Vallee Blanche run.

Breakfast will be left for you so you can set your own pace. The atmospheric wood-fired hot tub will be fired up for you three nights a week, the price of which is also included.

Location

Le F’Net is less than an hour’s drive from Geneva perched on the trail up to the Prarion Mountain; with superb views towards the glorious Chaine D’Aravis mountain range.

Surrounded by its own private woodland and a slice of now defunct piste it is a short walk from parking OR directly accessible by 4×4 [outside the ski season], and even in full snow it is only a ten minute walk up or a ride on an ATV; yet feels like a world away.

From the communal parking below the chalet it is a 5 minute or so drive to the centre of Saint Gervais and its commercial, culinary and cultural facilities. The main ski lift to the Saint Gervais/Megeve ski domain is just beyond the town centre.

There is however a drag lift a few hundred metres above the chalet itself, linking into the Les Houches domain. Subject to snow conditions it is then possible to powder ski back to the chalet door from the Les Houches runs.
