About Chalet Capieu - Le Barn
If you're fed up with the crowds and the concrete jungle of the major ski resorts, don't waste any time and book the apartment Le Barn in Chalet Le Capieu.
Situated in the middle of the piste, this is a true ski-in ski-out out 3 star apartment with all the action right on your doorstep, but when the crowds go home at the end of the day, you've got the mountain to yourself!
Le Barn is one of four apartments in this authentic mountain Alpage, or farm. There is parking nearby, and in the winter your luggage will be ferried across the piste to the chalet. You're just 500m from the Lake Annecy ski resort of Merdassier, where you'll find restaurants, a supermarket, sports shops, a boulangerie and an autobank.
With such a privileged location, the panoramic views over Alpine meadows are breathtaking, with the Etale mountain providing a dramatic backdrop.
The property ...
This spacious two-storey apartment is the perfect place for two families to holiday together, sleeping up to 12 in four double bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The Nordic-style decor is both comfortable and practical, and the open plan living area, with a dining table, wood burner and a well-equipped kitchen, is a cosy refuge when the snow is falling. It opens on to a balcony with a dining table for al fresco meals, as well as the hot tub, where you can relax and watch all the action on the pistes.
There are two bedrooms with en suite shower rooms on the this floor, as a separate toilet. On the next floor are two large double bedrooms, both with sofas, en suite bathrooms and balconies - a great place to check out the weather and have the first cuppa of the day.
About the area ...
If you're all about the skiing, you won't get closer to the piste than this! Le Barn is right on the slopes in Merdassier, Manigod - part of the Lake Annecy ski resorts.
From here you can ski to the other resorts, such as La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, or take the regular ski bus. Your Aravis ski pass gives you access to 220km of slopes and 95 lifts, so there is always a new challenge.
Merdassier itself is a very family friendly resort, perfect for beginners as well as those ready to move on to more challenging slopes. There are also plenty of trails for cross-country skiers and snow-shoe walkers.
Non-skiers may be happy watching the action from the jacuzzi, but if not, there's a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool nearby in La Clusaz, as well as an ice skating rink and cinema, sledging, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
In the summer, you'll appreciate the tranquil position of Le Barn as soon as you open your eyes in the morning.
Wander out on to the balcony and admire the lush green meadows that surround you, and the mountains just waiting to be explored. Walkers and mountain bikers will find plenty of trails from the door, and adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, or white-water rafting within a few miles of Merdassier.Via ferrata is a great family day out, with children as young as eight able to explore the mountains on iron walkways, secured to a harness.
In the evening, sit out on the balcony and enjoy a barbecue as you watch for shooting stars over one of the most beautiful valleys in the Alps.
If you fancy beign first on the slopes then don't waste any time booking your holiday at Capieu - Le Barn. Check your dates against our availability calendar, and if you need a bit more time, we will hold the property for you for 24 hours. But don't leave it any longer than that - a ski in ski out apartment like this is sure to get booked up!

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
Le Barn is perfectly placed to enjoy all of the areas facilities.
When my father bought Chalet Capieu in 1970, the fields were pasture in the summer and untouched snow in the winter.
At that time there was no electricity or water and it had been left abandoned for a number of years - the property was nothing like the chalet you see today.
In 1972 the first two drag lifts were installed and the area started its transformation into a bustling sector of the La Clusaz / Le Grand Bornand ski area. Little by little, more lifts were added, and now the chalet is surrounded by 7 drag lifts and a chairlift all directly connected to the Croix Fry ski sector and the whole of the rest of the La Clusaz resort.
Chalet Capieu is perfectly placed to enjoy all of the area's facilities, it is within walking distance of a commercial centre that has a ski school, ski hire, shops, bars and restaurants and is under a 10 minute drive to the centre of La Clusaz itself.
The chalet is right on the piste - truly ski in / ski out - plus it has the most incredible panoramic views of the slopes and across to the magnificent Etale and Mont Charvin mountains. The sector is great for families, but also offers plenty of challenges for more experienced skiers, as it is part of the La Clusaz/Le Grand Bornand circuit.
With the development of the resort, in 2001, we decided to renovate the chalet. The whole building was lifted, the old cheese cellar was removed and replaced with a concrete floor and new foundations.
New walls were put in dividing the chalet into four apartments of which Le Barn is the biggest.
We're still making improvements today.
We've recently put new windows in the living room to make the most of the light and the fabulous views, but the latest addition is the Jacuzzi on the sunny south-facing terrace.
It's a great place to wind down in the evening, overlooking the slopes and the mountains beyond.
We've tried to make sure that everyone has their own space in the apartment, while the large communal areas mean you can all get together to enjoy this stunning and unique location. We very much hope you enjoy your stay at Le Barn !

“Better than perfect! A rare find”
We could not have dreamed of a more beautiful place to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday, the chalet is even more magnificent in real life than in the photos. It is fully equipped but really there is EVERYTHING you need to have a good time (fondue and raclette machine provided, all the pans and pots imaginable, all the necessary crockery, pretty glasses, cupboards everywhere... basically your home away from your home. The layout is perfect, the cleanliness of the place was perfect, the conviviality of the living room and the kitchen, the rooms are all so cozy ... Frankly, it is a magnificent place if you want to meet with family or friends in a peaceful setting in the mountains. I absolutely have to mention the views from the balcony of the room, from the jacuzzi or even when leaving the chalet you will be amazed, do not miss out on this rare find. The hosts are really nice and understanding (we were late on arrival) and communication was fluid. The chalet Capieu is really splendid, idyllic setting to relax, warm atmosphere, I 100% recommend this property for a weekend or more!

“Wonderful stay in Manigod”
Very nice location, the chalet interior is incredible, with warm atmosphere. We highly recommend the Chalet Capieu. The stay was really perfect, we can not wait to return to Manigod.
— Florence M. Oct 2021
“A superb chalet with a magnificent view”
A large fully equipped kitchen and, above all, a jacuzzi to relax after a long day in the mountains. If you want to go with friends or family, you will feel really at home there. There is space and the surroundings are very calm and relaxing. You will have at your disposal 3 beautiful and large bedrooms and a fourth smaller (more for children). Just 15 minutes from La Clusaz, you will have plenty to take care of! Hikes, visits, walks, sports activities, bars, restaurants ... Everything you need to have a good time! There is also a swimming pool at Merdassier, accessible to all. All in all, we had a great stay with friends and we recommend this chalet to you. The owners are very nice and welcoming, answer all your questions and are available to you when needed.
— Hugo D. Aug 2021
“Excellent week with friends!”
Excellent week with friends! The chalet is very well equipped, and the jacuzzi is a very pleasant plus! Located in the middle of the slopes, you can enjoy the mountain as soon as you step out the door!
— Rémi C. Jul 2021
“Book it with closed eyes!”
Super chalet in which you feel really good, in an idyllic setting. The facilities are top notch, and Lionel the owner was very accommodating about the arrival and departure times which have changed quite a bit!
— Tracy P. Jun 2021
“I recommend this place!”
Exceptional and functional chalet. The landscape is breathtaking. You can access the mountain in a few minutes. Lionel the owner is available and easy going.

“Book now for a big gulp of fresh air!”
We spent 5 days as a group of friends at Chalet Capieu this autumn. It was a unique and wonderful stay. The chalet is ideally located in the middle of nature, and close to Annecy too (we visited this lovely town too). The view from the chalet is unbelievable, with the pistes right in front of our eyes. We enjoyed the many walks available from the front door. And the jacuzzi is perfect to relax your aching muscles after a day of hiking. The decoration is very typical of the area, the equipment is complete and functional, the kitchen allos you to cook delicious meal for big groups. The owner is lovely and very available. We strongly recommend this chalet.
— Delphine R. Oct 2020
Lionel the owner was very flexible and nice. The location is fabulous and the chalet is well equipped. We couldn't find it at first but the locals guided us!

“A magnificent view”

“Total peace and quiet”
What a serene and relaxing setting. Ideal to catch up with my friends.
— Morgane F. Jun 2020
An absolute gem of a chalet, un an exceptional environement. Perfect for a week-end of nature and fresh air. Great equipment. Special mention for the hot tub with a view on the mountains.
— Stéphanie P. May 2020
“Fun and comfort in one chalet!”
The chalet has so much to offer: ski in ski out, great location and so cosy and great facilities. Lionel and his wife leave a gorgeous bottle of wine for you to enjoy and the fun of skidooing luggage and us over to chalet is so organised, as is the arrangements of departure.This is our third visit and it won't be our last.
— Natalie M. Mar 2020
“This chalet exceeded our expectations”
Thank you Lionel for this nice and comfortable chalet. We enjoyed the skido to carry our luggage uphill! We had a great stay in Manigod.
— Jean-Baptiste F. Jan 2020
“A really lovely apartment, perfectly equipped and clean”
The apartment is really magnificent, with an exceptional view. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms and four toilets - ideal! Perfect for a family. However, we have three very small children, and I imagine that the quiet location might not suit some parents. We received a lovely welcome from Lionel and his daughter, who were helpful and friendly.
— Xavier Et Claire P. Dec 2019
This well equipped chalet is situated on the slopes of a small ski station with a magnificent view of the mountains and the surrounding countryside. The website is true to the reality but only allows a small glimpse of what the area has to offer. Our three-generation family group found plenty of space inside and lots to do outside. The owners are charming and welcoming. We recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax in comfort, get close to nature and animals, and enjoy the hot tub on the balcony overlooking the splendid mountains.
— Bernard D. Jul 2019
“The perfect family skiing holiday”
The location is perfect, the space in the chalet is great for families, and best of all, the hot tub is a great way to end each day. The resort of Manigod is super for families.
— Stéphanie L. Mar 2019
“A very pretty chalet in an ideal location”
We were a party of four couples and two singles. We spent a week skiing in the really lovely station of Manigod. This pretty, spacious chalet is well equipped and very comfortable. Ideally situated right in the middle of the piste with a magnificent view. We loved the hot tub on the balcony after a great day skiing. The surroundings are superb. We loved the calm and the beauty of the resort, the slope through the pines and the welcoming people.
— Dominique L. Jan 2019
Loved it. Will book again. Merci.
— Maggie B. Dec 2018

— Annie B. Dec 2018
“A beautiful property and super welcome”
A beautiful, spacious apartment in the middle of the pistes, with a magnificent view of the Aravis mountains. We had a great welcome from Lionel and his partner. We recommend this place: you can book it with your eyes closed!
— Jean Pierre L. Aug 2018
“Excellent 4 day stay despite bad weather”
Great welcome on arrival, chalet well set up and spacious with 4 ensuite bedrooms. The icing on the cake: a jacuzzi with a view!!!!!
— Evelyne C. May 2017
“A super chalet, super welcome!”
Great location, clean, comfortable, well equipped, and tastefully furnished and decorated. If we had had as much snow as we had hoped for, we would have been able to make the most of the superb location, right on the piste and next to a lift. Despite that, we enjoyed the lovely sunny terrace and the hot tub. It really was a good week. Our thanks to Lionel, the owner; the chalet is just what we had hoped for.
— Isabelle P. Apr 2017
We had an amazing stay that started for the best thanks to the impeccable service provided by OVO Network, for a fast and easy booking. We enjoyed the great chalet, very well equipped, with a breath taking view. Lionel and his wife, the owners, were very welcoming. We hope to come back next year.
— Odile L. Mar 2017
“An excellent holiday”
Ideal for skiers who can ski from and back to the chalet. The apartment is spacious, every bedroom has its own bathroom. The owners take care of every detail. They will even transport your luggage in a snowmobile when you arrive and leave.
— Didier L. Feb 2017
We have been coming for two years and we will come again. The chalet and the situation are exceptional, as are the owners!
— Laura C. Jan 2017
“Very comfortable and a really lovely view”
Very good welcome. We appreciated the fact that the arrival and departure days are both full days. We were won over by the beauty of the landscape and the quiet before the start of the season.
— François J. Sep 2016
“Well equipped and comfortable”
An exceptional view, and the jacuzzi is a bonus. The chalet is well equipped and comfortable and the bed linen is excellent. The village is family-friendly and pleasant, close to La Clusaz and the Aravis. There are lots of mountain walks from the chalet (no need to take the car).
— Christophe B. Aug 2016
“It couldn't have been more comfortable.”
The chalet was perfect for our group of adults teenagers and younger children. Access to the slopes was easy for beginners. It was peaceful, yet close enough for ski hire, bread etc. There's lots of room, even an extra bunk on landing. Altogether it couldn't have been more comfortable.
— Peter W. Apr 2016
“An exceptional location for skiers”
We had a great stay at Chalet Capieu Le Barn, with the best bit definitely being the location on the piste. However, you do need to be an experienced skier as access to the chalet is via a blue slope. The chalet is very well equipped, with everything you need. The welcome was very professional and the staff very helpful. The amazing station of Manigod is family-friendly and welcoming, with access to the La Clusaz domain.
— Audrey S. Jan 2016
“Another fab holiday in this lovely chalet!”
We were so lucky with sunny weather and good snow coverage. We all enjoyed the new wood stove! We all like cooking and eating and found the kitchen had more or less everything we wanted and loads of crockery and glasses. Great skiing, good food, comfortable beds and always hot water we were all wonderfully relaxed by the end of the week.
