Maison La Cerisaie

This beautiful, newly renovated stone farmhouse and luxury ski chalet in Sixt Fer à Cheval is 70 minutes from Geneva airport and part of the Grand Massif, France’s fourth largest linked ski area. A 5-minute walk or 2-minute ski to the lifts, the chalet combines stylish contemporary design and comfort with traditional charm. It has 4 en-suite bedrooms for up to 12 people and a hot tub on the garden terrace. The owners, Sally-Anne and Simon, manage the chalet personally and ensure that every guest experiences a truly memorable holiday.

Sixt Fer à Cheval is an historic, living and working village in one of the most naturally beautiful areas of the Grand Massif. An Alpine sports centre for over 150 years, it is also recognised as one of the 5 “Plus Beaux Villages de France” (most beautiful villages of France) in the French Alps. Maison La Cerisaie is superbly located, with ski pistes and a huge range of walking and biking trails within a few hundred metres. It's a perfect year-round base for mountain activities and for those seeking a peaceful, restorative retreat.

The village ski area provides 32 km of local pistes – from well-equipped beginner slopes to blue, red, black and off-piste.  It's only a 10-minute drive in our own 4WD minibus or the regular free ski bus to the Grand Massif Express gondola in Samoëns, and direct access to another 230km of pistes in the rest of the Grand Massif ski area. From its highest point above Flaine, you can ski home on the picturesque 14 km Piste des Cascades, which finishes just below the chalet.
