About Chalet Crechoua
Chalet Crechoua is a new five-bedroom, five-bathroom chalet for 14 people (ten adults max). Close to the pistes, the ski bus and the village, it has already proved very popular with OVO Network guests
Designed with great holidays in mind, this is the first OVO Network 4 star property in La Giettaz, and is ideal for two or three families or a group of friends. You'll love the panoramic views, being just 300m from the ski bus stop and just 3km on skis from the liaison to Megeve. You have a choice of two ski passes - Les Portes du Mont Blanc, or the more extensive Evasion Mont Blanc. For even more variety, it's just a 14km drive to the ski fields of La Clusaz.
Whether you decide to visit in winter or in summer, you will never be short of something to do. Winter sports such as skiing, boarding and snow biking are always popular and in summer, the mountains are a magnet for bikers, walkers and paragliders. You can also try summer luge, climbing, or just take the lift up the mountains and enjoy the view over a picnic.
Whatever you are looking for in a mountain holiday, you'll find it here at Chalet Crechoua.
With two living rooms, three terraces and a bar, there is plenty of room at Chalet Crechoua for 14 guests of all ages. Summer or winter, it's a great place to get together with friends or family and enjoy the mountains in each other's company.
There's a cosy fireplace and sofas in the main living room for the winter, and the fabulous terraces, complete with sun beds, a dining table and barbecue for long summer evenings. And whenever you choose to visit, the hot tub is sure to be a firm favourite with everyone. You will also enjoy the new sauna in the garden.
The fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd, and there is plenty of room for you all to eat in the dining area or outside on the terrace, overlooking the mountains. The choice is yours.
The kit room has a boot warmer as well as plenty of room for all your outdoor gear. Guest will appreciate the new and secure bike storage that includes an electric bike charger.
The lower ground floor has two bedrooms, an open plan living room and a bar, as well as a separate bathroom, making it perfect for a group who would like their own space.
There's another double bedroom with an en suite bathroom on the ground floor, and on the upper floor there's a spacious family suite with a double bed and two singles, a seating area and a dressing room. This room has its own access to the main bathroom, with a shower and corner spa bath, and there's a separate toilet. The final room is a kids' dormitory with four single bunk beds.
There are also three covered parking spaces to save you having to clear snow from your car in the winter and to keep it cool in the summer.
About the area
Chalet Crechoua is in an amazing location, with splendid views over the Aravis mountains.
The link from Le Plan to the ski areas of Combloux and Megève means skiers have lots of choice - more than 100km of pistes in the Portes du Mont Blanc area, and stil more in the larger Evasion Mont Blanc area, which covers covering Megève, St-Gervais, Saint- Nicolas de Veroce and Les Contam. If you're still looking for more, you're just a short drive from the La Clusaz ski area, which has more than 200km of pistes.
There's just as much to do in the summer - choose from walking, climbing, mountain-biking, summer luge, picnics, or just enjoy the 360-degree views from the top of some of the ski lifts. The Col des Aravis, a familiar scene in the Tour de France, is also nearby.
The medieval town of Annecy is just 45km away - close enough for a day trip. Explore the narrow streets and canalside restaurants or enjoy a day on one of the lakeside beaches.

The OVO Network Review
“Chalet Crechoua will be ideal for large families or groups of friends wanting to ski all day then return to a chalet with lots of extra touches and facilities to keep everyone happy.”
Chalet Crechoua is a brand new 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom chalet for 14, spread over 3 floors and approximately 250m2 of floor space. And it is the first OVO Network chalet in La Giettaz.
It's in an amazing location, with splendid views, and has lots for room for two or three families or group of friends.
There are two lounge spaces with a bar, a dance floor, and that winter Alpine chalet essential, a fireplace to gather around. The open plan kitchen area has extra seating, and there is a large dining area adjacent to the kitchen. Plus a kit room with boot warmers.
There's an extra shower room just off the terrace leading off to the exterior jacuzzi and an independent wc on each floor.
Out of doors there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy a meal, an outdoor lounge area, a huge terrace, and several balconies, plus covered parking.

From the owner
The south-facing chalet offers a panoramic view and an idyllic setting...
“Imagine spending your next mountain holiday in an exceptional chalet, at the foot of the Aravis mountains in La Giettaz, a Savoyard village full of charm on the Route des Grandes Alpes.
You will be ideally located just two hours from Lyon or Geneva, 20 minutes from Megeve and 15 minutes from La Clusaz, You're just a few steps from the famous Col des Aravis, which is familiar with cyclists on the Tour de France. You will also be 3km from one of the Portes du Mont Blanc - a ski field with 90km of pistes linking La Giettaz, Combloux and Megeve (the Jaillet section).
Chalet CrechouaAfter several years of serious thought, this project started in 2016, continuing the history of the village's Marin-Cudraz family.
Combining traditional methods of wooden chalet construction with modern building standards, we also respected the environment. The wood came from Savoy and the facing stones were found and cut on site during the groundwork, with local labour guaranteeing a "Made in La Giettaz" label.
In addition, an underground tank collects rainwater, reducing water consumption for sanitary purposes.
The south-facing chalet offers a panoramic view and an idyllic setting which is a harmonious blend of pine forest and mountains, where the air is so much better than in some of the valleys. it also enjoys constant sunshine and an exceptional quality of light.
Well-being spaceThe chalet has a floorspace of 250m2 over three floors. There is plenty of room for up to 14 people to enjoy their stay, with three terraces from which to enjoy the stunning views and a spa area where you can recharge your batteries after a day skiing, biking or hiking - the outside jacuzzi has views of Etale.
A selection of teas are available as well as a stone bar.
Our priority is that you should have a great stay and return home with wonderful memories. Take a moment to take a picture of yourselves on the Crechoua rock - you can share this unique moment on the chalet album.

“We'll never forget this Christmas”
Our family stayed in the chalet over Christmas. We had a wonderful stay, and enjoyed the beauty of the landscapes, which we admired from the chalet covered in snow. In addition the property is extremely well equipped: in the kitchen nothing is missing to prepare good meals (wine cellar, 2 dishwashers, coffee machine, pastry robot ...). And finally, we appreciated the comfort that offers the chalet, the bedding is very comfortable, everyone can enjoy the different spaces, and the jacuzzi and sauna were appreciated for everyone's relaxation. Without forgetting the warm welcome and the availability of the owner. I highly recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed.

This is a dream chalet designed to make life easy: everything is practical, the equipment is top quality, the management takes care of every little detail, the location is idyllic etc. And the cherry on the cake is that the owners are adorable and the residents very welcoming.

Everyone was won over and we all have just one request - to come back as soon as possible! Thank you Pierre-Yves.

The holiday was really very very nice - the chalet was quite simply perfect. The children loved their own room. The quality facilities at the chalet were really superb (unbelievable sauna, hot tub and superb comfort - nothing was missing). And the view is simply breathtaking! Chalet Crechoua has a great location for summer holidays (Annecy, Chamonix, Megève). It was great to be so close to mountain-biking in La Clusaz - what a joy! Thank you for the warm welcome and the gifts on our arrival.

Enough space to find a quiet place for yourself. Also a lot of great activities to do, and many games for the kids. We loved the jacuzzi and the views!
The contact with Pierre Yves was really good, he recommended us some nice stuff to do in the neighborhood. Good place to stay with a big family or a big group of friends.
We really enjoyed the great hikes around, the chalet close to the pistes, the train in Chamonix and the other small villages in the area.
We would love to come back one day.

“A dream holiday!”
We are just finishing our holiday at Chalet Crechoua in La Giettaz, in the Aravis. We really loved our week, and we would like to thank the OVO Network team, as well as the chalet owner, Perre-Yves, who made our holiday so fantastic. There was nothing missing in this brand new chalet. We were three families with young children, and we had a dream week. The chalet is really well equipped (kitchen bedrooms, bathrooms, games...) with breath-taking views. As for the skiing, it's a unique place, being less than 20 minutes away from three domaines: La Clusaz; Espace Diamant and Evasion Porte du Mont Blanc. You could come again and again without getting bored. But none of that is possible without the person who looks after the place, Pierre-Yves, whose sense of hospitality is his strength. Thank you!
— Maxime T. Jan 2019
“We'll be back, for sure!”
We had a great weekend with the family in this chalet, which met all our expectations. I strongly recommend this place for a get-together. A thousand thanks to Pierre-Yves for his welcome and his helpfulness.
— Yannick P. Nov 2018
“Thank you to the owner and to OVO Network”
We have become used to the OVO Network quality and service! Thanks to Pierre-Yves for the welcome - everything was perfect. The chalet is unbelievable, clean and impressive. We loved the location, the quiet, but also quality and the service. We'll be back, that's for sure. Thanks, and see you soon.
— Jérémie M. Sep 2018
“A perfect holiday!”
Pierre-Yves, the owner, was very caring. Everything went well. There were two of us and we were travelling by motorbike. This was a great location with very good access. We would love to come back. It's a shame that nearly all the OVO Network properties are in the Alps, because the support from this company was excellent, with very quick answers to our questions.
— Petra V. Sep 2018
“An unforgettable holiday at Chalet Crechoua”
The chalet is close to shops with a good range of products. The equipment provided is perfect. We spent a very comfortable week there with our children and our grandchildren. The welcome from the owners and their helpfulness was faultless. We really enjoyed the hot tub, which was lovely after an active, or even a not so active day out, There is a great variety of walks from the chalet (you can climb up to 2,000m). It was great to be so close to the Col des Aravis and to have the village of La Clusaz just 30 minutes away.
— Christian P. Aug 2018

The view is magnificent and the chalet is tastefully decorated. The area is perfect for bike rides and walks.
— Philippe V. Jun 2018
“An unforgettable week-end ”
There is nothing bad to say about this great chalet: it's very functional and really well designed. The main living space is so vast that even at full capacity (14!) you get to enjoy some privacy. The hot tub is awesome, and so is the view. Nothing was missing and the owner is very friendly.
— Logan M. May 2018
“A perfect holiday, magnificent chalet”

— Gaelle R. May 2018
“A wonderful stay”
What a wonderful stay!
The Chalet is new, charming and really well furnished. Everything works well and if you need something Pierre-Yves is always fast to respond and give the help you could ask for. The location is perfect for a skying week, and also for exploring the Haute-Savoie area.
Le Plan ski area, which is connected to Megeve is less than 10 minutes drive to the chalet, as well as La Clusaz that is just 20 minutes drive. Megeve Village can be reached in 20 minutes. Annecy lake is reasonably close to the chalet. And in less than an hour you can visit Chamonix Mont-Blanc.
We really loved the location, the silence, and the layout of the chalet.
The area is wonderful, there is a lot to do and to see.
I really recommend a stay at Chalet Crechoua!
— Roberto V. Mar 2018
“The best chalet!”
We had an extraordinary week at Crechoua. The chalet is very well thought-out and designed, and every detail is considered.

Finally, I'd like to add a sixth star for the hosts, who are amazing - discreet, lovely and helpful. In short, the best.

“A magic Christmas”
We spent Christmas with our family at Chalet Crechoua. There were 13 of us, including our children and grandchildren, and it was just magical!
The managers welcomed us warmly and were very attentive to us throughout our stay.
The chalet is really gorgeous, very comfy, well decorated, and it has a stunning view.
We'll have very good memories of this Christmas, we were delighted.
Many thanks to Pierre-Yves and Magalie. We loved the scenery, snow-shoe walking, and the Christmas markets in La Giettaz and La Clusaz....
We hope to come back for another wonderful holiday!
