Chalet Belle Cour
This beautiful contemporary chalet is set in the charming village of Manigod, and has stunning views over the Aravis mountains. The accommodation is set over three floors, with plenty of room for 10 guests (9 adults).
The owners have worked with a local architect to build the property, and the result is a stunning home with all the facilities guests will need for a great mountain holiday.
The village of Manigod is just a short drive from the ski station of La Croix Fry, which offers great choice for skiers of all levels, but is particularly popular with families. In the summer, it's a very attractive area for walkers and mountain bikers. The bus stops just 50m from the door, so you don't need to worry about getting the car out.
The village itself has a popular bakery where you can pick up your fresh bread and pastries in the morning, and a restaurant which also offers takeaway food. Other restaurants can be found within a short drive of the village, and at the Croix Fry ski station.
IMPORTANT : during winter, the skibus stops 800m from the chalet.
About the property
Chalet Belle Cour can accommodate up to 10 guests in four bedrooms, with three bathrooms.
As you enter on the ground floor, there's a lobby with WC and wash basin, as well as hanging space for coats. There's a double bedroom with en suite shower room and access to the terrace, with great views of Etale, Sulens and Tournette.
The open plan living area overlooks the valley, and there's access to a balcony, which runs across the front of the chalet. There's also a dining table on the shaded terrace off the kitchen area, where you can enjoy a fine meal or just your morning coffee.
Cosy sofas and benches are arranged around a woodburning stove, which can be turned to face the dining area when you all sit down to eat together. The stylish kitchen comes with a big range oven, so there's plenty of room to cook for a crowd.
There are two more double bedrooms on the first floor, which share a bathroom. There's also a large family room which has a double bed and a set of sturdy bespoke bunk beds - this room has an en suite shower room.
A long gallery landing on the first floor overlooks the dining area and is set up as a work space, should you need to check in. There's also access to the second balcony from here, so it's easy to take a break!
The property also has a garage and a ski store with racks and boot warmers and, on the lower ground floor, a useful laundry room.
About the area
Chalet Belle Cour is just 10 minutes from the Croix Fry ski station (altitude 1500m), where you can park free, although if you'd rather leave the car behind, the ski bus stops 800m from the chalet. There are plenty of gentle nursery slopes here, where beginners can build confidence, while experienced skiers have access to more than 200km of pistes and 95 lifts in the La Clusaz/Le Grand Bornand area.
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.
In the summer, you’ll find no shortage of things to do when you stay at Chalet Belle Cour. There are plenty of walks, from mountain hikes to gentle plateau paths, and you can take the ski lift to the top of the mountains and come back down at your own pace. The bus stops just 50m from the chalet.
There are tree-top adventure parks for all the family at Thônes and Le Grand Bornand, and a beautiful lakeside golf course at Annecy.
Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, via ferrata, mountain-biking or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod. Round off the perfect day with a barbecue and drink on the terrace at Chalet Belle Cour
If you think Chalet Belle Cour sounds like the perfect choice for your next mountain holiday, check your dates against our availability calendar. We'll hold two weeks for you for 24 hours, completely free of charge, while you check with the rest of your group.
We think Chalet Belle Cour will be very popular with guests of OVO Network, so don't waste any time getting your holiday booked.

The OVO Network Review
“Summer or winter, a great base for exploring the mountains”
Chalet Belle Cour is a newly-built four-bedroom, three-bathroom chalet for 10 guests - one of the bedrooms is a family room with a double bed and a set of bunks. Sitting below the road in the beautiful Manigod village, it has wonderful views of the valley.
We love the stunning revolving fireplace in the living area - turn it towards the dining table when you're eating, and then back towards the living area for a cosy evening together. Having terraces on three sides of the chalet mean you can follow the sun, but there's also a great sheltered terrace, so that you can enjoy the great outdoors whatever the weather.
The outdoor dining table has been perfectly place so that you can enjoy the stunning views while you eat.
There is plenty of hanging space in the bedrooms, as well as storage in the bed bases and the bedside tables. The two en suite bathrooms are very well appointed, but our favourite is the family bathroom, which has a freestanding bath big enough for two!
The bakery in the village is a great place to pick up your morning bread, but for a bigger shop, it's just a quick drive into Thônes, which has a good selection of shops and supermarkets as well as a weekly market.
In the summer, there are wonderful walks from the door in this beautifully tranquil area, and it's a great base for exploring the lake at Annecy as well as the mountains.
The owners of Chalet Belle Cour have tried to think of everything you need for a great mountain holiday, but they've still got plenty of ideas - watch this space for new facilities coming soon!

From the owner
Warm Welcome to Chalet Belle Cour!
To our family the magic of the mountains has embraced us warmly ever since we first came to Manigod valley. We do hope you will experience similar magical moments staying in our family mountain home! Our family history travels through various countries and continents but we found ourselves always returning to the mountains, for its specific atmosphere, its amazing views and authentic people.
From the very first moment we visited Manigod, we instantly fell in love with the village, the valley, its hidden treasures of unspoiled nature and its warm hospitality, last but not least the soothing sound of the cow bells from spring till autumn. We were very fortunate to have met this elderly lady, who grew up in Manigod village and happened to still own a piece of land of their family property.
As we never planned to ever buy land to build on, we suddenly found ourselves designing and developing a wooden chalet of our own! We are grateful to be the lucky ones to live here now and to share it with you. Locally we met a fine architect and construction company of wooden chalets, that understood the local, protected design of building in this area, to respect and maintain its uniqueness.
We followed the amazing building process of our own chalet step by step and were impressed by their full dedication, joy and craftsmanship to realize our dream: Chalet Belle Cour. As with all the kind people that we have met until today, we were very lucky to meet our reliable manager and dedicated housekeeper, who are taking care of our guests as well as our home.
If there would be anything you may need, please do let us know, through contacting them.
On behalf of our seven children and three grandchildren we wish you will enjoy your stay at Belle Cour and hope you will feel as welcome here as we do! Enjoying your stay here, respecting the premises as a duly responsible person, Belle Cour will be your home for now!

“We had a perfect week!”
Belle Cour chalet is beautiful. We had the most perfect week. The location is ideal to ski to Croix Fr, Merdassier and La Clusaz. The children had a great time skiing, but also sledging, skating and swimming. The chalet is very well equipped and the view is beautiful. Marine is very welcoming and friendly.
Thank you very much!

“Warm welcome and well equipped chalet”
We were greeted very warmly on arrival by Marine who took the time to explain the chalet and its surroundings. The chalet is ideally situated. It is very bright and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The decoration is simple and elegant.

We can't thank the owners enough for hosting us in their magnificent property. It was clean, welcoming and we had everything we could possibly ask for to spend a great ski trip in the Alps. We will be back soon.

Calm, peaceful, relaxing, beautiful views... just a few words to describe our lovely stay at Chalet Bellecour this July. The manager was very welcoming and efficient.

“We have just left, and I already want go back”
Chalet Belle Cour is a beautiful, warm and cosy home with an amazing 180° view. It is situated near the road, easily accessible, but you can still enjoy the quietness. Manigod is a picturesque little village surrounded by beautiful hiking paths and cycling routes. The lake of Annecy is only 20min drive away with a lot of sightseeing possibilities and other activities. My favourite thing was to drink my morning coffee on the terrace watching the sunrise over the mountain tops while listening to the cow bells and the river Fier, perfect way to start the day!
— Lisotte B. Aug 2020
Beautiful spacious and luxurious chalet with all modern conveniences in a beautiful spot with a phenomenal view. It's a fabulous place to stay here with family and / or friends. There is enough space for everyone in terms of privacy. We appreciated the well equipped kitchen where we really did not miss anything. Also the beds are very good and we were provided with more than enough towels per person. Beautiful surroundings and close to the beautiful Lake Annecy with many recreational opportunities.
— Arjen J. Aug 2020
“What a fantastic experience!”
I stayed at this wonderful chalet for almost 2 weeks in June. It is spacious, well equipped and everything you can wish for in a luxurious chalet. I made several trips in the area but lake Annecy was the highlight, only a 20 minute drive. But also driving up into the mountains, beautiful little villages, what a pleasant surprise... Also the locals are very friendly and helpful. I already booked my next stay for 2021. Thank you for the warm welcome, I can’t wait to explore more!

“Our favorite place to stay in the area”
The chalet is situated perfectly in a quiet, peaceful area with beautiful views from the house. The piste’s, tracking and biking routes are just around the corner and easily reachable by car and bus. The house is brand new and that shows. Spacious living area’s, modern equipment, cosy bedrooms and fancy bathrooms. If the owner Tonie is around, invite him for a beer. He’s he good laugh as well. We will come back for sure!
— Wouter H. Jul 2020
“We would love to come again very soon!”
We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful chalet with our family, the wonderful views and all the activities we could do in the area. We used to come here for winter sports and this was our very first time in the summer! A mega recommendation in all respects and all seasons.
