About Lodge La Source ...
Lodge la Source is a modern south-facing detached chalet built in 2011, on land belonging to the owner's family.
In the quiet village of Les Clefs, just 4km from the busy market town of Thônes, it is about 16km from the La Clusaz pistes, so a car is essential (but it is just off the main road, which is always cleared of snow in winter). Built as a family home, it is a great place for young children, with a large garden, and a mezzanine area which could be used as a children's play room.
In 2018 the owner upgraded his already fantastic property with a fabulous indoor pool extension with a gym (elliptical bike, exercise bike, treadmill, aquabikes), home cinema and rooftop terrace.
This 5 star chalet has fabulous views, looking out onto tree-covered mountains, an old farm, La Tournette and up the valley towards Manigod.
The property ...
This contemporary chalet has everything you need for a great family holiday, and a new extension will bring even more!
An indoor pool with glass sides to make the most of the stunning views is to be added, along with a home cinema, gym, and a rooftop terrace above, making this the perfect place to combine mountain sports and relaxation!
The chalet sleeps 12 people in 6 bedrooms, there's a bathroom on each of the three floors (one features a hydrotherapy bath) and separate toilets.
The open plan living area is contemporary in style, with a large corner sofa and a woodburning stove and flat screen television. Prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy it together around the dining table, which can be extended to accommodate everyone.
On a warm evening, the wide terrace is the perfect place to eat out of doors, in peaceful lush surroundings. Or if you prefer the whole chalet, inside and out, is wired for sound, which is controlled from a central computer, and with no neighbours to disturb, it's a great excuse for a party!
About the area ...
Lodge La Source is just outside the market town of Thônes and a 10-minute drive to Manigod/Croix Fry, a less crowded access point to the Aravis ski area with its 220km of snow-sure pistes to suit all abilities.
Although a bit of a drive from the pistes, roads are cleared regularly, so that in fact access can be quicker from here than from properties in villages closer to the pistes, with more challenging private driveways.
The resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz are also easily accessible. There’s a great choice of cross-country ski, snow-shoe and walking trails. For the ultimate in winter fun, try dog-sledding, paragliding on skis, horse-drawn sleigh rides or ski joering - skiing while being towed by a horse!
Non-skiers are not forgotten in winter, with the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, ice skating rinks and cinemas, and sophisticated shopping in nearby Annecy and Geneva.
Lodge la Source is the perfect base for an activity-packed summer holiday. Golfers will be spoiled for choice, with three excellent golf courses within a 30-minute drive.
You’re just a 25-minute drive from Lake Annecy, where you can swim in its crystal clear waters, or try water sports such as wakeboarding, sailing, waterskiing, kayaking and diving.
Back in the mountains, thrill-seekers might like to try canyoning, white water rafting or climbing on a via ferrata circuit. Cyclists and mountain bikers have a huge choice of tracks, and you can always take the ski-lift up the mountain to make life easier. Keen cyclists can challenge themselves on some of the Tour de France’s most famous climbs, while the scenic [and flat!] 40km cycle path from Annecy to Ugine can be enjoyed by the whole family.
When it’s time for a rest, Lodge La Source’s large garden is the perfect place to catch some rays or enjoy a barbecue as the sun sets behind the mountains.
With its exciting new additions, Lodge La Source offers everything you need for a great holiday in the mountains. To be among the first guests to enjoy these new facilities, check your dates against our availability calendar. If you like, we can hold the property for you for 24 hours while you make your plans. But don't wait too long - this is certain to be a very popular choice with OVO Network guests.

Set in one of the most beautiful Alpine valleys, the village of Manigod is a mountain secret that is a delight to discover.

Beautiful chalets are dotted around the mountains, restaurants range from local auberges to Michelin starred, and you can buy locally made pottery and cheeses fresh from the farm.

The OVO Network Review
“A little further away from the skiing, a little closer to the Lake...”
After a year of enjoying living in the chalet himself, the owner of Lodge La Source has decided to once again make his property available to guests via the OVO Network.
With one of the most beautuful views in Montisbrand, this six-bedroom three-bathroom property for 12 is spread over three floors and has plenty of space for a couple of families or a group of friends to spread out and be comfortable indoors and out all year round. We only ever recieved positive feedback from all who previously stayed at the Lodge.
With a sauna on the lower floor, a hot tub ouside the ground floor, and a second lounge space on the first floor, there are plenty of extra facilities. There is also a new gorgeous indoor pool, home cinema and gym.
The owner is both discreet and incredibly knowledgable about the local area, very sporty, and keen to help guests enjoy their holiday at Lodge La Source to the maximum. He also enjoys music and so has a great sound system installed throughout the property, and the well-equipped kitchen also hints at a love of food and entertaining.
The property is in a quiet village 4km outside of Thones. The nearest ski bus stop is just over a kilometre away, so a car is necessary.
However, if you prefer looking at stunning landscapes to being in, or close to town, then this could be the perfect spot for you. The view of the resort of Manigod/ Merdassier all lit up for night skiing is quite spectacular.
The OVO Team.

From the owner
I will always be available to help out with advice about the local area should you need it.
"This three-storey chalet was built between 2009 and 2011 on land belonging to my mother's family.
"The chalet was built by the Lambersens brothers, a highly-respected and well-established local chalet-building company based in from Les Clefs. Although it looks like a traditional chalet from the outside, the interior was designed with comfort in mind, to cater to the needs of families with young children, and to make the most of modern technology.
"We chose to keep the rooms open, light, airy and large, everyone has plenty of space to spread out and do their own thing, or gather together for meal times or spend time chatting. We called the property Lodge la Source because of the natural water source in the garden.
"The location is calm and peaceful, with beautiful views up towards the Manigod valley, down towards Thones, and towards La Tournette. There are plenty of lovely walks from the door, whatever the time of year, whether on foot or on snow shoes! I'll always be available to help out with advice about the local area should you need it.
"There is plenty of parking for groups who need to bring more than one car.

“Pure happiness for the whole family”
The location of the chalet at Clefs is very close to Thônes where all shops are available. The view over the Manigod valley is splendid and the atmosphere is very calm and resourcing. The property offers everything to feel great. Lodge la Source is very welcoming with a magnificent swimming pool. And the Nordic bath... what a joy to be in spring water under the stars! We really appreciated that everything was provided for the children's entertainment: games, books and much more. They didn't want to leave and neither did we! Our arrival was perfectly orchestrated, Cyril's punctuality and his warm welcome were greatly appreciated. His explanations of the operation of the chalet were simple and helpful. A bottle of local juice and a bottle of apremont in the fridge as a welcome. Thanks Cyril for everything.
