The OVO Network Review

If you want to ski until you drop, and are looking for a comfortable ski in/ski out apartment on the piste Chalet Capieu Le Barn could be the one for you. There are four apartments in Chalet Capieu, Le Barn is a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom apartment for 12, (max 8 adults) 150m2 of floor space over 2 floors with a ski store and laundry below.

In winter it's possible to ski the 500m down to the commercial centre of Merdassier for fresh bread, or a trip to the supermarket. You will also find bars, restaurants and sports hire shops.

Providing your purchases fit in a back pack you can take the button lift back up to the apartment! The night skiing is also a huge plus, ski until 9pm weekends and school holidays. Or watch the fun from the comfort of the jacuzzi on the balcony!

There are many events organised by the local tourist office in and around Merdassier, winter and summer, in the summer you can hire bikes, walk, play tennis all within 10 minutes of the chalet. There's even an open air pool with lifeguard.

The button lift transfomrs to become a Devil Kart lift!

The apartment is ideal for a couple of families or a group of friends. There are other apartments in the chalet , it is sometimes possible to hear your neighbours.

“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 !

“Very nice accommodation”

Very nice accommodation, as described and as shown in the photos, at the foot of the slopes. The chalet is very cosy and comfortable (fully equipped), with a magnificent view of the mountains. A real haven of peace. Super warm welcome from the hosts with good advice.
