About Chalet Caramel ...
Although traditional in style, Chalet Caramel comes with every modern convenience to make sure your holiday is a memorable one, including a home cinema room which can be converted into a party room, complete with sound and light system.
Chalet Caramel is linked to Chalet Nougat only by the garages and shared indoor swimming pool and there is a private jacuzzi on a terrace at the other end of Chalet Caramel. Of course, large groups of up to 28 can book the two properties together and enjoy exclusive use of all the facilities.
The charming village of Manigod is a walk away, and offers a popular bakery as well as a restaurant with takeaway service. And for even greater holiday, you even have the possibility of a half or full board stay at Chalet Caramel.
The ski bus (free with the Carte d'Hotes and the Aravis ski pass) stops near the chalet, and links the ski station of Croix Fry with pistes at La Clusaz.
The property ...
Up to 14 people can be accommodated easily at Chalet Caramel, in six spacious en suite bedrooms.
Enter on the ground floor and you'll see straight ahead a spacious central hall with a sprial staircase. There are bedrooms on either side of the entrance - one a double with en suite shower and the other a double with a single bed and an en suite bathroom.
Behind the staircase is the ski room and home cinema. The main living area is up a floor, where you'll find a large well-equipped kitchen with a central breakfast island, a dining table big enough for 14 people to eat together and a cosy sitting area around an open fire and television.There's a toilet here too, and entrance to the swimming pool, which is shared with Chalet Nougat.
At the front of the chalet there's a furnished south-facing balcony which widens to a sun terrace (shared) by the swimming pool, and there's another more private balcony off the dining area, where you'll find a large jacuzzi, from which you can enjoy the stunning sunsets.
On the top floor you'll find four more bedrooms - a double with an en suite bathroom, a double with an extra single bed and shower room and two doubles with shower rooms. There's also a seating area on the spacious landing with access to a small balcony.
About the area ...
Chalet Caramel is just a few minutes' drive from the Croix Fry ski station, so you'll be able to make the most of every minute on the slopes. Parking is free, but if you don't want to take the car, the ski bus stops just 100m from your door.
From Croix Fry, your Aravis ski pass covers 220km of slopes and 95 lifts, from La Clusaz to Le Grand Bornand. Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails on the nearby Beauregard plateau, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with an ice skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
Just as in winter, the summer fun centres around Chalet Caramel's stunning Alpine location.
Explore the mountains on foot, either from the door or take the ski lift to higher altitudes and come back down at your own pace. You can take your bike too - pick up a route of graded mountain bike trails at the tourist office in La Clusaz. Gentler walking and glorious views can be found on the Beauregard plateau - take a picnic and plenty of water!
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via-ferrata or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod. Adventure parks at Le Grand Bornand and Thônes provide tree-top fun for all ages.
The towns also host weekly markets, where you can pick up fresh local produce. A day out to the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is a must. Explore the shops and museums in the morning, lunch at a lakeside restaurant, and you've got the rest of the day to swim in the crystal-clear waters, hire a boat or try some of the water sports on offer.
If you would rather stay closer to home you will really appreciate the jacuzzi and swimming pool at Chalet Caramel.
If you are already picturing yourself lounging by the pool at Chalet Caramel, exploring the mountains and shopping in local markets, why not check your dates against our availability calendar? We can hold them for 24 hours if you need a bit of time to finalise your plans. But don't forget to come back - Chalet Caramel and Nougat are always very popular with guests of OVO Network.

From the owner
We imagined big living rooms, comfortable bedrooms and play areas
"In 1965 our parents welcomed their first guests to Le Grand Bornand, in a chalet built by our father. Les Congeres was named after the powdery snowdrifts which often cut off the farms in the winter.
Since then, my brother Patrice and I have taken up in the footsteps of our parents, developing the concept to offer luxury accommodation.
My husband Anthony joined us for the construction of the chalets Meringue and Macaron in Le Grand Bornand. Anthony and I live in Manigod and love this quiet sunny valley.
We wanted to develop our business in the village that we loved so much. We imagined big living rooms, comfortable bedrooms and play areas.
We wanted to offer our guests luxury facilities in spacious properties where they could enjoy the company of friends and family in a magical place.
We are sure that you will enjoy spending time with friends in these spacious chalets, with their sunny aspects and superb views of the mountains. The nearby ski stations of Manigod and La Clusaz, wonderful hiking trails and magnificent Lake Annecy promise wonderful relaxing days.
Muriel and Anthony
“Everything was as described, no bad surprises!”
We stayed at Chalet Caramel. Muriel replied to all our questions before booking. Anthony greeted us on arrival at the chalet and gave us various much appreciated tips. He showed himself to be available throughout our stay.
The chalet is simply unique, the view is amazing and the chalet is built with quality materials. Everyone had their own space but we could all meet in the lounge. The hot tub and pool were very welcome after a day of walking or skiing. Thank you for this really pleasant stay.

“Perfect stay in Chalet Caramel”
Our stay went very well, the host was available and friendly. Everything was perfect. We especially enjoyed the chalet's swimming pool and jacuzzi, then also the walks in the region with the snow that had dusted the mountains. It was truly a superb family holiday. See you soon.

“Perfect wellness stay amongst colleagues”
The chalet is beautiful and very well maintained, perfect for a stay with colleagues. The "wellness" areas are very pleasant and the views of the mountains are breathtaking, we especially enjoyed the swimming pool and the spa. We were greeted by Anthony who took the time to show us around. I recommend this chalet for a stay with family, friends or colleagues. The rooms, the wellness areas and the living spaces are very clean, everything is in perfect condition. Thanks again Anthony!

“Elegant property with splendid views”
The chalet is beautiful, with a sober and elegant decor. Very well equipped, we were not missing anything during our stay. On the contrary, we were happy to benefit from the many games available (ping pong, badminton, table football, board games) and sound equipment of excellent quality. The pool area is incredible and the jacuzzi on the terrace a luxury. The rooms are very comfortable with each of them a private bathroom. The view from the large terrace is splendid. We were also extremely well received by Anthony who remained available throughout our stay. Thank you again to Anthony, our manager came to welcome us, introduce us to the spaces and recommend our outings. All of the service was excellent and the property exceeded all of our expectations.

“Unforgettable stay in beautiful surroundings!”
We rented two chalets (Chalet Caramel and Chalet Nougat) for our wedding. We had an unforgettable stay in such beautiful surroundings. The chalets are very well equipped and allow everyone to find something to do in case the weather isn't good (swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, table tennis, table football). I recommend Sandra MARTIN as a private chef. She prepared our wedding meal, and it was excellent!!!

“Thank you for our DREAM wedding!”
We rented the two adjoining chalets Nougat and Caramel for our wedding. The organization was very simple as these properties offer all the equipment possible for cooking and partying. We called on Sandra Martin, home chef for the caterer, and the Pâtisserie Fontaine in Thônes for the mounted piece and the desserts. The guests were not bored, they had something to do with the swimming pool, the jaccuzis, the trampoline, pétanque, table football, disco room, televisions, and so on ... In short, this stay was left to everyone. world a great memory and I recommend 100% Thank you very much to the owners for their excellent communication and the services rendered.

We enjoyed Chalet Caramel for a family weekend in November. The chalet is perfect for families and guests ranging in age. Everyone found something they loved: ping-pong, table football, the swimming pool, jacuzzi, TV, dance floor, walking in the mountains, sledging, relaxation etc... Everything was perfect, and it lived up to all our hopes and expectations. The owner;s welcome and helpfulness was just unbelievable. We loved the magnificent view, the practicality of the chalet where every little thing had been thought of (laundry, cloakroom, bathrooms). The decor is modern and in the style of the mountains. The high-end materials made for a real feeling of well-being. The jacuzzi is always warm, the pool is heated to 30 degrees, bathrobes are provided. The kitchen is spacious and practical, and the dishes are very pretty. There is a parking space in the huge garage where you can unload your car. In short, everything is perfect!

A really luxurious chalet with a beautiful swimming pool (hang on if you are swimming against the current!) and a spacious jacuzzi. Bathrobes for walking to the pool, it's the attention to detail that makes all the difference. We had a great time - everyone had their own space but we could also get together in the large living room with its open plan kitchen. We received a punctual and warm welcome from Muriel and Anthony, who were always available if we needed anything, and there is a great view over the Manigod valley and La Tournette. We didn't leave the chalet - it was so good that no one wanted to leave! An unforgettable time which brought us together as a family.
