Hauteluce Winter Holidays Covid Update

Dear all mountain and family lovers,

We know for sure now that ski areas will not open in France for the end of year holidays.

The disappointment is significant, however,  winter in the mountains is not just about downhill skiing. An extremely varied range of activities exist: outdoor sports activities (snowshoes, ski touring, etc.), fun activities, cultural and heritage walks. ... the ski resorts and villages of Savoy are places alive and inhabited all year round, they are by nature areas conducive to a change of scenery and to the expression of various forms of tourism.


Regarding our chalet Very Joly, it is obviously very closely linked to  winter sports because we chose the stunning valley of Hauteluce to build because of it's high snowfall microclimate near Mont Blanc, and because of the way Agriculture and Tourism work together.

According to Gites de France.com, only 1 in 2 people on winter mountain holidays practice skiing.


Some holidaymakers may make the choice to spend a vacation "a little different" this year.

Travel will normally be possible from December 15 and no official restrictions will then prevent you coming on holiday and staying in our beautifully remote chalet, spending the end of the year holidays in the mountains.

Holiday stays are possible, the villages and ski resorts are lively, the shops are open, a multitude of activities await them ...

We are now of course, with lifts closed, adjusting our rates accordingly by setting lower rates until the ski areas reopen.  In fact, it is the first time Black Friday seems a good idea.  We are offering 20% discount, on top of our usual 10% direct booking discount, to all future holidays, which are reserved during 2020.

The chalets sleeping twelve cannot offer the same flexibility as our apartments in Switzerland sleeping 4.  They are just two large to have regular changeover days, so will remain with minimum stay of 7 nights.

Frequently asked questions:

When is it possible to welcome tourists again?

From December 15, if the improvement in the health situation is confirmed, the confinement will be lifted. Holiday stays will therefore be possible.

table d'hôtes meals are still not possible. 

Is there a limitation on the number of people simultaneously accommodated in our accommodations?

No. No maximum number of people is set.
