Haute-Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
La tete de l'elephant is a beautiful chalet with stunning views over the mountains nestled in the French Alps in the very French Village of St Jean D'Aulps just 10 minutes from the town of Morzine. This new and modern, very spacious chalet has hot tub, under floor heating and wood burning stove.
The chalet is about 1:20hrs drive from Geneva airport in the heart of the Portes du Soleil area which offers the largest international ski area in the world with over 650km of marked runs catering for all levels of skiing. In summer the region transforms to be one of Europe's most impressive mountain biking terrain with 350km of official tracks.
It is just a 10 to 15 minute walk to the shops, bars and restaurants in the village centre but benefits from a short walk to the ski bus stop of around 250 metres. It is in a tranquil setting...

Great chalet every thing you need for a good holiday. Don't want to over do it as it will probably be booked when we want it next year 😀

I enjoyed a relaxing few days with friends and family in July. The Chalet is located in an amazing area. The short walk to the Bakery each morning was one of the many perks of the trip. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden and taking in our surroundings as well as exploring the area and hiking its many paths. The...

Additional amenities & feature info
The chalet was built in October 2006 and everything is therefore modern and in excellent condition. It is rented occasionally to keep it in great condition. It is located in a very peaceful cul de sac setting with ample private parking, just above the village of St Jean D'Aulps and 10 minutes by car to the town of Morzine. There is just a short walk into the centre of the village with its small shops, bars and restaurants and Carrefour supermarket, however it is elevated sufficiently to benefit from fabulous valley views. A Carrefour hypermarket is only 5 minutes by car between St Jean and Morzine.The chalet is offered on a self catering basis for up to 12 to 13 people, it has five double bedrooms (3 with double beds, 1 with 2 sets of bunks, 1 with 1 set of bunks), a fully equipped fit... more
