HAUTELUCE, A HIDDEN PARADISE
Its impressive view of Mont Blanc , its many hamlets and their chapels, its alpine chalets ... make the Hauteluce valley one of the most beautiful and unspoiled in the Alps. In this natural setting reigns calm, charm, authenticity and conviviality. Skiing enthusiasts will also find their paradise here between the Espace Diamant (from Hauteluce, via the Col des Saisies ...) and the ski area of Contamines Montjoie (from Belleville, via the col du Joly ...). Les Saisies is perfect for beginners and young families. Experts will be happy with a wealth of off piste and a non-pisted marked route back to the chalet. Les Contamines is excellent for experts with many off-piste routes between all the pistes, substantial black runs and established bump runs. It also has interesting blues and red runs for piste excursions all day.
Shops (restaurants, mini-market, equipment rental store, etc.) welcome you 4km away in Hauteluce villageon. Free shuttles also allow you to travel through the valley to Saisies (winter and summer) or Les Contamines (la Ruelle) (winter only).
High place of Savoyard heritage, you can also discover a remarkable Baroque church, numerous chapels, old log chalets and mazots and visit the Ecomuseum. In the center of the village sits the tree of liberty, an extraordinary lime tree planted there during the French Revolution.
A village, a valley and two complementary ski areas of very high quality with a view of Mont-Blanc.
From the village of Hauteluce you have direct access to the Saisies area and the Espace Diamant and its 192 km of slopes via the Chozal chairlift . The return to the village is provided by the red track of the same name. For the less experienced, you can take the Jorets blue slope then the Chozal chairlift downhill or the free shuttles. The bus from Les Saisies and Hauteluce to Chalet Very Joly is free.
Located at the foot of Mont-Blanc, the Espace Diamant is above all a space of freedom designed to discover another way of skiing.Its 159 slopes connect 6 charming ski-in ski-out ski resorts: Les Saisies, Hauteluce, Notre Dame de Bellecombe, Crest-Voland / Cohennoz, Praz sur Arly and Flumet. Thanks to its micro-climate and the proximity of Mont-Blanc, the Espace Diamant enjoys exceptional snow cover from December to the end of April.
The Espace Diamant has routes of all levels between forests, mountain pastures and villages of character. At each summit, a majestic panorama: Mont-Blanc, Beaufortain massif, Chaîne d'Aravis ...
From Chalet Very Joly at Belleville Bus stop, you can reach the 120 km of slopes of Contamines Montjoie via the Col du Joly and the Ruelle cable car. End the day at the Belleville Restaurant/Bar and have a drink before the free ski bus sets off - 5 minutes journey back to Chalet Very Joly. Lasagne Salad 16.5 Euros, a glass of wine 3,20 Euros, biggest beer available, 10 Euros.
The whole family, from beginners to experienced skiers, will be delighted by this large-scale area, but which has retained its convivial and family character.
The Portes du Mont Blanc area grouping La Giettaz / Le Jaillet (Megève) / Combloux / Cordon provides a link between Savoie and Haute Savoie. This area guarantees you an incredible journey between fir trees and mountain chalets, offering a wide variety of skiing. La Giettaz is a powder snow paradise; skiers thirsty for slopes and sensations will linger there with one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Alps at its summit, a breathtaking 360 °!
We provide extra refrigerator and freezer space, so that you can stock up on arrival, then just pick up fresh things en route home from your ski day.
Summer gives access to neighbourly farmers, and the Beaufort Cooperative, 11km further down the valley, who can provide milk and cheese directly. Beaufort cheese and goats cheese are special to our area of the Hauteluce Valley. We seem to have our own private tennis court, which is a great facility, for Boules also, a fishing lake, a kiddy parcours, and evening relaxation at the barbeque site. We have balconies, a barbeque and a big dining table outside, so morning and evening sun can be enjoyed in the chalet grounds also, with a spectacular mountain and forest surround.

Comfortabele chalet for Family Group (8 à 10 p)
Rapport qualité/prix 4/5
Comfortable chalet for a large group or family (8 to 10 p)
Very well-equipped chalet with individual sanitary facilities per room. A barbecue was not available, but on simple request the owner made an appliance available. The region is very beautiful, but the chalet is somewhat remote from the village of Hauteluce (approx. 3 km).

Chalet tres tres agréable
Rapport qualité/prix 5/5
Very very pleasant chalet
We had a great Christmas party. There were many of us, but each had a private bedroom and bathroom. Everything is new, simply and tastefully decorated. Nothing is missing. We recommend. The only downside is that cleaning is additional and compulsory.
