Chalet Ascensus

Chalet Ascensus

Chalet Ascensus is a beautiful south facing 19th century stone and timber Savoyard mountain farmhouse on 4 levels that has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and is owner run as a luxury fully catered chalet both Winter and Summer for up to 16 guests in 5 well-appointed flexible guest suites with modern bathrooms.

Chalet Ascensus is just 50 minutes from Geneva airport and situated in a small hamlet only 2 minutes by chalet minibus to the telecabin and centre of Les Carroz. Nestling in a peaceful setting in a quiet lane and bordered by Le Nant, a mountain stream. 

Stay in our stunning farmhouse chalet dating from 1877 where much of the period charm and character features of the old farmhouse has been retained - original features such as exposed stonework, wood beams and old cupboards. In contrast to this, there are modern bathrooms, double glazed windows and gas central heating throughout together with plenty of hot water. A huge lounge with cozy log fire and separate tv/games room. The chalet benefits from an indoor hammam (sauna or steam operation) and a 6 seater outdoor hot tub!

The chalet is very large – over 320 m2 of spacious and comfortable accommodation!

The chalet is owner run by experienced hosts with over 15 years knowledge of the Grand Massif ski area. We are very proud of our leading role in the Local Tourist Commission and partnership with local suppliers. Don't take our word for it, just look at our many fabulous guest reviews on TripAdvisor. We are delighted to have been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the 6th year running and to be yet again rated the Top Speciality Chalet in Les Carroz. Also featured in The Telegraph online 0ctober 2018 rated top new Chalet!
