In the middle of pastures, in a stunning area of green mountains,La Chavane raises its bicentenary walls in Plan Montmin, 3,000 feet above sea level, near Col de la Forclaz and its amazing view on the pure waters of the Lake Annecy. Catherine and Benoit are pleased to welcome you year round in an old renovated typical stone farm house in the Massif des Bornes-Aravis. Four cozy bedrooms with private bathrooms and separate toilets can accommodate up t 3 people in each (4 in the 'family' room). Table d'hotes dinner is available on request. At short distance, the Col de la Forclaz unveils its amazing view on the pure waters of Lake Annecy. This mountain pass is a major spot for paragliders and hang gliders and is also famous among cyclists and walkers. Summer or winter, whether you like gliding on the air, snow or water, cycling, mountain walking or simply enjoying a peacefull and relaxing surrounding, La Chavane will seduce you.

Set on a quiet plain, half way up a mountain. Silence and beauty on what was a sunny warm (23degree) evening. This is a small B&B in an old farm house. Good rooms and great bed with a wonderful breakfast with home made brioche and 'milk jam' (a first for me) and lovely bread.
