The stylish accommodation at Chalet Sabaroc is set over three floors. The entrance is to the first floor - there's access to the large double garage with plenty of room for storing bikes and skis, and a ski room with a heated boot rack. The hall has storage space as well as a toilet.
The first floor is also where you'll find the open plan living, dining and kitchen areas, with large windows and doors on to the spacious terrace which catches the sun on two sides of the chalet. The modern kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook up a feast for everyone, a large American-style fridge to keep the drinks cold, and a breakfast bar.

The three floors are connected by a stylish wood and glass staircase, which enables light to flow between all the floors.
About the area...
Chalet Sabaroc is in an amazing location at the foot of the Aravis mountains, with splendid views across the valley. Its position just 2km from La Giettaz, on the road to La Clusaz, means there is easy access to a great choice of skiing in the winter, especially the Evasion Mont-Blanc resort (connected with le Plan) and hiking and biking in the summer.
The link from Le Plan to the ski areas of Combloux and Megève means skiers have lots of choice - more than 100km of pistes in the Portes du Mont Blanc area, and still more in the larger Evasion Mont Blanc area, which covers covering Megève, St-Gervais, Saint- Nicolas de Veroce and Les Contam. If you're still looking for more, you're just a short drive from the La Clusaz ski area, which has more than 200km of pistes.
There's just as much to do in the summer - choose from walking, climbing, mountain-biking, summer luge, picnics, or just enjoy the 360-degree views from the top of some of the ski lifts. The Col des Aravis, a familiar scene in the Tour de France, is also nearby.
The medieval town of Annecy is just 45km away - close enough for a day trip. Explore the narrow streets and canalside restaurants or enjoy a day on one of the lakeside beaches.

The OVO Network Review
“The perfect place to celebrate”
Chalet Sabaroc is a five-bedroom, three-bathroom chalet for 10 people, with the accommodation set over three floors. It's in a great location for those who like to explore - it's just five minutes from the village of La Giettaz and just 10 minutes from the slopes.
You'll need a car when you stay at Chalet Sabaroc, and if you are visiting in the winter you will need to be equipped with snow chains or tyres, but there's plenty of reason to get out and about. The Col des Aravis is just five minutes drive away, and offers a choice of bars and restaurants as well as hiking and snow-shoe trails and dog sledding! Drive for another five minutes to reach the pistes at La Clusaz - the village is just a little further on.
The chalet enjoys a great location at the foot of the Aravis mountains - it's south facing so the lovely big garden and terrace is a real sun trap.
Inside, the spacious living room with separate seating areas makes it a great place for a group - you'll never be falling over each other! The large windows open on to the furnished terrace, where you can sunbathe, eat al fresco or simply enjoy the sublime view.
Chalet Sabaroc is a great choice for a group - it's a very sociable house, with plenty of room to get together, including the bar area. We think it would be great choice for an extended family reunion - even if that's just a fantastic mountain holiday together!
What is the OVO Network Review?
We visit the property and write an unbiased review. What’s good? What’s not so good? We’ll help you find the right chalet for you.
From the owner
We are very happy to welcome you to Chalet Sabaroc. The chalet is named after a restaurant on a little island in the British Virgin Islands, the Saba Rock, where we had a great time as a family.
We have loved the Aravis region for more than 30 years, and built our chalet in a protected area at the foot of the mountains, with a breathtaking view of the valley.
Chalet Sabaroc was built by local craftsmen using quality traditional materials: larch; old wood and stone from a nearby stream. It is insulated to the latest standards, making it very eco-friendly.
It is our second home, and furnished with care, so we hope you'll feel right at home.
The property is set in a friendly village, surrounded by magnificent Savoyard chalets at the foot of the Aravis mountains and the famous Col des Aravis, which separates Savoie from Haute Savoie. It is at the heart of an area which attracts visitors all year round - they come for the sports, nature, and gastronomy.
You can ski, go snow-shoe walking, dog sledding, biking in summer and winter, via ferrata, canyoning...
The chalet is surrounded by a huge choice of hiking trails, where you will come across marmots, sometimes chamois, and, in season you can collect mushrooms, blueberries and raspberries...
Make yourself at home for a week or more, and we hope that you have a great time!
Christine and David
“You feel at home right away!”
We fell in love with Chalet Sabaroc. It is spacious and cosy. It is very well laid out and equipped. You feel at home right away. It has a large garage and a ski room. There are also sledges available for the children. We had a great holiday and look forward to coming back next year.

“The hot tub was perfect after a long day on the slopes”
The photos made the place look great, but seeing it in person was even better. The chalet Sabaroc was very spacious, clean and with everything we needed for a great stay. The hot tub was a welcome addition and the boot warmers in the ski room really came in handy too! Dany, our manager, was so helpful! From giving us tips and advice about the local area before our trip, to picking up some groceries for us before we arrived. She was fantastic and we couldn't recommend chalet Sabaroc and OVO Network highly enough.

“A mountain dream”
That was the best winter holiday we have experienced so far. The chalet Sabaroc is very well equipped and lovingly furnished. Very friendly and helpful host. We will definitely see each other again.
— Katharina W. Jan 2022
We had a great stay here with our children. Christmas in the snow was magical. The rather snowy weather allowed us to particularly appreciate the fireplace. The chalet is well located, near the small family ski resort "La Giettaz - Le Plan" which is linked to the Megève ski area. A big thank you to Dany and her husband for their welcome and the attention they gave us throughout our stay.
— Jean-Louis T. Dec 2021
A magnificent chalet, very cosy, with a splendid view, and an outgoing and very welcoming manager. The equipment is almost complete (only a few dishes and cake pans are missing!). I strongly recommend this very heart-warming rental, very close to La Clusaz and the Col des Aravis. We enjoyed the walks, the summer sledge, the boat on Lake Annecy... and relaxing in the deckchairs! Ah, and I almost forgot to mention the hot tub: pure bliss! Really everything is done to relax and discover the area.
— Martine B. Aug 2021
Despite the rain, the quality of the chalet and its equipment allowed us to spend an unforgettable stay at Chalet Sabaroc. The chalet is beautiful and we particularly enjoyed the hot-tub with the view on the Aravis.

“Beautiful chalet with a perfect view”
It has every type of comfort you could wish for together with a fantastic view on the mountains.
— Anton V. Jul 2021
“Fabulous chalet and breathtaking view”
We really enjoyed the chalet, especially during the avalanches! What a pleasure to admire this thick snowpack ... exceptional! The bar is very nice, the hammock great, and the upstairs level is splendid.
— Isabelle C. Jan 2021
“Excellent family stay at Chalet Sabaroc”
We enjoyed this spacious property and its welcoming atmosphere, as well as the many openings to the terrace and garden. It's the ideal base to explore the Aravis: close to everything but in a very quiet location. The online description and photos gave us a good idea of what to expect, and we were not disappointed on arrival. Also to be noted: the perfect service and welcome from Mr and Mrs Donoso, the managers.
— Paul D. Jul 2020
An impeccable property! It reached all our expectations, and more! The terrace with a view was fantastic, and so were the very comfortable sofas!
