Ski Chalet in Abondance, France
This comfortable, traditional-style chalet is located in the tranquil hamlet of Frogy just a few minutes walk from the charming historic village of Abondance. The chalet is divided into an apartment sleeping up to 6 and a studio sleeping up to 5. The whole chalet may be rented, sleeping up to 11.
The village nestles in the Abondance valley, a short hop from Lake Geneva, and is the gateway to the fabulous Franco-Swiss Portes du Soleil, the world's largest skiing domain.
It is an area of spectacular mountain scenery with breathtaking views and beautiful vistas throughout the year. As well as being astonishingly picturesque the mountains are a fantastic all year round playground.
Situated at an altitude of 1000 metres the village of Abondance lies in a valley dominated by Mont de Grange (2432 m) and du Pic de la Corne (2084m).
In the winter there are snow sports for all the family. The ski areas are linked by lifts and there is a regular free ski-bus service which runs through the valley from Abondance to Chatel and Pre-la-Joux where you will find multi-lingual ski schools offering classes at all levels for individuals and groups. See our Winter page for more information.
In summer the mountains are carpeted with flowers and the alpine meadows tinkle with the sound of cowbells. If you enjoy relaxing in the local atmosphere then why not take a gentle stroll to the village square and enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes before browsing the local speciality shops.
A wide range of services are available in the village including restaurants, cafes, a small supermarket, boulangerie, patisserie, boucherie, delicatessen, pharmacy, banks, post office and ski shops. The Franco Suisse cafe has free wi-fi and is run by a very friendly and helpful owner. Sunday is market day and the village square is filled with a variety of stalls selling meat, vegetables and local produce such as honey and Abondance cheese, as well a clothes and gifts.
A large and varied range of Spring and Summer activities are available here. Apart from sight-seeing the area offers opportunities for walking, mountain biking, paragliding, swimming, kayaking, rafting and fishing. Other local activities include rock climbing, via ferrata, equestrian trecking and the exhilarating ‘Fantasticable’ zip-wire from the top of the Rochassons ski lift.
