PLEASE NOTE: The access road has a sharp incline in places and care should be taken when descending, especially in winter. It is imperative that your vehicle is fitted with the correct equipment (winter tyres/snow chains) and you are confident driving in snowy and icy conditions. While the road is regularly cleared of snow, we cannot guarantee that it will be clear as soon as you need to use it (for example to depart for a flight). If there is heavy snowfall we recommend that you leave your car in one of the public car parks in the village and only take it to the chalet for collection and drop-off.
The private access road may only be used by guests staying at Chalet Riparian, who use it at their own risk. The owner accepts no liability for any loss or injury suffered as a result.
IMPORTANT : there is a stream on both sides of the property and children should always been supervised by adults.
Other properties you might like...
Surrounded by woodland and bordered by two streams, you'd think Chalet Riparian was in the middle of nowhere. In fact, it's right next to the telecabine, and just 200m from the centre of La Clusaz!
This newly-built chalet for 12 is a real find for guests who want the best of all worlds - it's ski-in, ski-out, with access to 220km of fabulous pistes across the Aravis. The ski bus stop is on your doorstep and La Clusaz's restaurants, bars, shops and ice rink are just a short walk away.
The chalet's wonderful garden has been landscaped to provide a peaceful haven with furnished terraces, built-in benches and evening lighting, perfect for long summer evenings.
With luxury extras such as a sauna and hot tub, and useful features such as a heated ski store, a lockable bike store, and a laundry room with a second fridge, Chalet Riparian has all the ingredients you need for an unforgettable mountain holiday.
IMPORTANT: Being centrally located, once you reach the chalet, you won't need to use your car! Vehicle access is via a private road that is steep in places, so in winter it is important that your car is fitted with the correct equipment (winter tyres/snow chains) and you are confident driving in snowy and icy conditions. See more information in the OVO Point of view section of this website.
About the property
You'll enter Chalet Riparian on the ground floor. There's plenty of room to store your outdoor equipment, skis and boots in the heated lockers in the entrance lobby and the laundry room is on this floor too. There are also two bedrooms - a twin room (which can also be set up as a double) and a bunk room for four, with an X-box. These rooms share a shower room.
Take the stairs up to the first floor, where you'll find three more bedrooms - a double room with en suite shower and access to a terrace, and two more en suite rooms with king size beds (one of which can be set up as a twin if this is preferred). Both of these rooms have balcony access, and one also has access to a terrace at the side of the chalet. All of the bedrooms have their own television, so there'll never be a fight for the remote control!
The spa area is also on the first floor: there's a sauna and shower as well as a sheltered terrace with a hot tub - relax in the bubbles and watch the skiers on the piste through the trees.
From the first floor the stairs lead to the centre of the living area on the top floor. On one side is the modern, well-equipped kitchen with an island breakfast bar, the large dining table and bookshelves, while on the other, comfortable sofas, chairs and coffee tables are grouped around a central fireplace and the television. This is where you can all get together to watch a film, share stories of your day and perhaps plan your next mountain adventure. Stairs lead down from this area to the terrace and garden to the rear of the chalet, where you can watch the sun set or perhaps enjoy a barbecue.
About the area
When you stay at Chalet Riparian, you're in the perfect place to enjoy mountains, sports and the busy village life in La Clusaz.
With the lifts on your doorstep and an Aravis ski pass, you have access to 220km of pistes and 95 lifts, so you will never be short of somewhere new to explore. There’s great terrain for cross-country skiers at the nearby Confins and Beauregard plateaus.
It's a great location for non-skiers too, with the neighbouring ice-skating rink and a cinema in La Clusaz, as well as 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, while the snow falls gently around you.
There's just as much going on in the summer, and when you stay at Chalet Riparian, you won’t need a car to enjoy everything the 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 there is always somewhere new to discover.
The beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is just 30 minutes away by car, and is a great destination 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 on the terrace or balcony, or visit the beautiful swimming pool complex in La Clusaz? Later you can catch up with friends and family over a barbecue in the beautiful garden at Chalet Riparian, as the sun sets behind the mountains.

The OVO Network Review
“An idyllic choice for skiers and non-skiers”
Chalet Riparian in La Clusaz is a five-bedroom, five-bathroom chalet with accommodation across three floors. We think it has one of the best locations in the area - by the ice rink and Beauregard Telecabin, with the village centre just 200m away and yet enjoying its own secluded garden edged by mountain streams. It's perfect for skiers and non-skiers.
After a day in the mountains, it's great to return to the chalet and relax in the sauna and hot tub before enjoying a pre-dinner apero on the terrace, underneath the stars. The only intrusion you may have is from the telecabine passing overhead during the day, the owners have landscaped the garden to ensure privacy as much as possible, and the hot tub is on a sheltered terrace on the opposite side of the chalet.
The garden at Chalet Riparian is being landscaped to provide terraced areas with built-in benches, and lighting will make it a delight in the evenings. Parents of young children will need to supervise them around the streams, but in the summer they will be a great place to cool off - one even has a small beach area in the forest.
The chalet has five shower rooms, three of them en suite, and although there are no baths, the sauna and hot tub make great places to relax and soothe any aching muscles.
A new private road makes access to the chalet easier. In winter the road is regularly cleared of snow, but you'll need snow chains and tyres or a 4x4, as well as good confidence in driving in snow to tackle the sharp incline.
If you'd prefer, you can park in town - the owners will provide sledges for you to bring your luggage the short distance to the chalet.
We're very excited to offer Chalet Riparian to OVO Network guests, and are sure it will be an idyllic place to stay, whether you are visiting in summer or winter.

From the owner
"From the first time we saw the property, we knew the location was unique!"
Surrounded by rivers on two sides, with the mountain behind, it feels remote and yet is only a couple hundred meters from the ski lift and the village.
It really is the best of both worlds.
The project to create a special chalet to enjoy the unique location took five years to complete, with a few challenges along the way! But with thanks to the many people who helped us, we got there in the end.
We hope that you love the village, the chalet and its location as much as we do. It truly is a special place to enjoy the mountains and all the fun there is to be had in La Clusaz.

“Perfect! (the weather was beautiful too 😃)”
WE LOVED THIS CHALET, it is quite exceptional. Without doubt the best my family and friends have ever stayed in.
The location is just incredible - literally 2 minute walks from the lifts, bars and town square restaurants but utterly tranquil next to a babbling brook, and private/undisturbed because of it's unique location literally just under the lift beyond the ice rink (which effectively form the urban limit, so once you're beyond it you get instant solitude and tranquility).
Attention to detail within the chalet is exquisite. It's as if the owners have designed it to perfection. Everything you might need is there and in exactly the right place (right down from the private balcony location of the hot tub, to the USB ports beside every bedside table). Also, the property manager couldn't have been more helpful. Everything was no fuss - we were early in the summer season and it turned out one minor bedroom sink was blocked when we arrived, but that was fixed within minutes of reporting it. Incredible service.

“It's a great place to stay!”
The luxury and comfort described on the website is true in every sense - it's a great place to stay. Great TV viewing space, relaxing hot tub well equipped kitchen, practical kit storage and drying systems. Steve greeted us warmly and the information he gave was spot on.
— Jeremy S. Mar 2022
“The location is brilliant!”
The location is brilliant. Ski in and out, and a short walk across the piste to get to the town. Good shops for food etc. The drive is a steep slope with a tight bend so you need chains especially in the morning. Overall an excellent week. We have stayed in La Clusaz many times and this was the best yet!

“Ideal location and very well equipped chalet!”
We loved our stay in this brand-new chalet. It's beautiful and very well equipped. Nothing was missing! The location is ideal, with a garden surrounding the chalet while being 1 minute walk from the village. Thank you for your welcome! We had a great family stay! We will be back!
