Ski Weekends & Short Breaks in the French Alps

At Chalet La Giettaz, you’re not tied to the traditional Saturday-to-Saturday routine of a normal chalet holiday. Because we have 10 apartments, we can be flexible with both arrival days and the length of your holiday, even during peak periods like Christmas and New Year.

Our location, just over an hour’s drive from Geneva, means that we are a great choice for a weekend ski-break, as the short transfer and great selection of flights to Geneva from the UK make the journey about as easy as you could hope to have to an Alpine resort. We are as little as 5 hours door-to-door from Central London or most other UK cities with a direct flight connection to Geneva: check out our sample itinerary below to see just how easy it is to reach us.

What’s more, once you get here, the empty spaces on the local pistes mean that it’s easy to make the most of your time here, rather than wasting time queuing for lifts and so on. Equipment hire is easily arranged, literally seconds from the bottom of the lift, so you can travel with carry-on luggage only and save even more time at the airport.

Of course, you’ll have time to enjoy our spa and bar facilities, and we can even prepare a hearty evening meal for you. After a couple of days surrounded by our beautiful scenery, our completely hassle-free experience will leave you refreshed and revitalised.
