About Lodge Fauspé ...
The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at Lodge Fauspé a 5 star property. In a quiet spot with stunning views over the La Balme ski area, this luxurious chalet is just a short drive from the bars, shops and restaurants of La Clusaz.
Built by local craftsmen in local reclaimed wood and Aravis stone, it cleverly combines contemporary style and comfort with mountain charm and tradition, offering light-filled rooms and cosy living areas.
Two of the bedrooms share a south-facing balcony, and there is a sunny terrace where you can enjoy a barbecue and a glass of wine on a warm evening. Soothe away the aches and pains after a hard day on the slopes in the indoor jacuzzi and sauna.
This is a unique property which knows it’s something special, and doesn’t need to shout about it!
The property ...
Parties of up to 10 will find Lodge Fauspé the perfect choice for a very special holiday. Built using local materials and a lot of imagination, the owners have decorated and furnished it with just as much care. Oak floors and panelled ceilings with huge beams are complemented by leather sofas and fur throws, with unique light fittings and stunning artwork.
The well-equipped kitchen is hand-built and features unusual metal worktops. It is open to the dining room, with its custom-built table seating 10, and the large living room, with squishy leather sofas, flat screen TV and an open fire.
Large windows make the most of the light and the fabulous views, and open onto the terrace, which has a dining area and a stone-built barbecue - a great place to relax after an energetic day in the mountains. There’s also a double bedroom with en suite bathroom on this floor.
A beautiful wooden staircase winds its way around a huge pine tree trunk to the second floor, where there are four more bedrooms, sharing two bathrooms. All of the bathrooms are beautifully fitted, with handmade sinks and local stone tiles. To cap it all, well-insulated walls and geothermal heating mean there will always be a warm welcome for you at Lodge Fauspé.
About the area ...
Lodge Fauspé is superbly located, just minutes from La Clusaz and overlooking the popular La Balme ski field - a favourite with our visitors and French freeride world champion Candide Thovex.
The ski lift is a short drive away and parking is free, but if you’d rather not take the car, the ski bus stops at the end of the road, putting the whole of the Annecy ski resorts at your disposal. Your Aravis ski pass will give you access to more than 220km of perfect pistes and 95 lifts in the stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod.
Cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers will find great terrain at the nearby Lac des Confins and the Beauregard plateau.
If you fancy a break from the pistes, La Clusaz has an ice rink, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a spa centre, and a cinema. If you’re looking for a challenge, try sledging, dog-sledding and sleigh rides, all within a few miles of your holiday home.
Lodge Fauspé is also the perfect base for the Défi Foly competition, when skiers end the season by seeing how far they can ski across the Lac des Confins!
There is no shortage of summer fun and adventure within a few minutes of Lodge Fauspé. There are plenty of gentle walks in the Lac des Confins area, where you will also find a tennis club, golf course, driving range, fishing and a riding centre.
Take the lift up into the mountains for some high-altitude hiking or biking, or try white-water rafting, canyoning, via ferrata and para-gliding in the La Clusaz area.
The crystal-clear waters of Lake Annecy are just 40 minutes drive away, making it a great place for a day out - you can swim and fish in the lake, windsurf or just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.
If you'd like to enjoy all the action of the French Alps, combined with the relaxation of a stay at Lodge Fauspe, check our calendar to see when the property is available. If you need a little time to make your plans, we can hold your date for up to 24 hours. But don't wait too long - fabulous properties like Lodge Fauspe are always in big demand.

From the Owner
A welcoming and luxurious chalet and has been the perfect setting for fabulous holidays, no matter the season...
“We’ve loved holidaying in the mountains over the last 35 years, and especially holidays in La Clusaz. In 2008 we were lucky enough to be able to fulfil one of our wildest dreams - we purchased a chalet facing the wondrous Aravis mountain range! We decided not to go the traditional route by naming the property after an aspect of the town’s history, or the local flowers and fauna, or even to take a name from the colourful local dialect! The name “Fauspe” is much more personal to us and original, being as it is a combination of the initial sounds from the names of our two children: Faustin and Perrine! We asked the architects to use locally sourced stone from the Aravis and reclaimed pine from renovated farms round and about, as we wanted the chalet to feature local materials crafted by local artisans and craftsmen, to create an atmosphere that was subtly modern yet cosy . We are really happy with what they have achieved. Lodge Fauspe is a welcoming and luxurious chalet and has been the perfect setting for fabulous holidays full of warm and special moments with family and friends ever since, no matter what the season. Corinne and Philippe COSTA
We loved the beauty and quality of the chalet, the equipment, the terrace, the view, the quiet location (cul-de-sac), and the parking for our cars.

“Thank you for your great hospitality.”
We have had the most fantastic week in Lodge Fauspe, everything we needed was here. It has a good proximity to the village and great views of the mountains. We appreciated the use of the binoculars. All the accommodation is well laid out, clean and fresh. This was our third visit to La Clusaz and second with Snow Lodge, it certainly did not disappoint!

“You can book with your eyes closed...”
Very spacious and comfortable chalet, perfectly equipped.
Cédric A. - 15/06/2018
“Lovely chalet and wonderful area”
Very comfortable and well equipped chalet, ideally located close to amenities and lifts.
The spa was great and the view was stunning.
The chalet was ideally located for La Balme ski area.
I would definetely stay again.

“Excellent stay at Lodge Fauspe”
The atmosphere is very welcoming and the decor is really nice. It's the third year that we have been back, and really love being there with family and friends. The pistes at La Balme are just a few hundred meters away - very practical, even if it's a bit longer coming back due to a one-way road. The view from the chalet is exceptional. In short, we had a great holiday in this chalet.
Florian R. - 03/02/2018
“Some great happiness”
We spent a week at Chalet Fauspe: it was an absolute pleasure!
This gorgeous chalet had all the comfort we can expect for a long stay for 10 poeple.
The bedrooms are well designed, and the living room is very pleasant and spacious.
The view of the pistes in front of the mountain is stunning, and the Snowlodge service was just perfect. We'd love to come back!
Eric N. - 30/12/2017
We had a wonderful week for our daughters 18th birthday. Enjoyed all the activities the mountains have to offer, tree climbing, canyoning, walking and swimming/ pedallos at the lake. Would definitely stay longer, a week is not long enough!!!
Petra G. - 22/07/2017
“An exceptional chalet”
We had a marvellous week in this exceptional chalet in the Aravis mountains.The chalet is spacious, with room for everyone to find their own space. We particularly liked the living room, the fireplace, the south-facing terrace and of course the jacuzzi. The chalet is very well equipped and well located, close to the Balme ski slopes.
Jean-Marie V. - 01/04/2017
A very good service. We spend a dream holiday at Fauspe and would love to come back. The welcome on arrival was very good. We were iimpressed by the decor, the setting, the view over the Aravis mountains and the charming village.
Caroline R. - 09/04/2016
“It felt like home!”
We loved the chalet. Wish we could have stayed - it felt like home! It had everything we could want and was not too far from the ski lift plus regular buses to the village. One criticism was that there are no taxis - definitely a good business waiting for someone!! We would all definitely go to Lodge Fauspe again and have recommended it to everyone who's asked.
Clare P. - 26/03/2016
Lodge Fauspe was our base for an unforgettable holiday. Everything was perfect - he location away from the main road, the view, the chalet facilities and decor ... We fell in love with everything, not forgetting the wonderful welcome from Sandra.
Sidonie F. - 05/03/2016
“Cosy, with outstanding service”
We had a fantastic week in the cosy Lodge Fauspe with our family! The service was outstanding and very friendly. The view of the mountains is beautiful... We'll certainly come back!

“Great service, fantastic place”
Very calm, good living space, well designed, good towels and great service from the Team. The resorts are well designed for families, with fewer English people.
Edmund K. - 01/08/2015
“Beautifully designed inside and out”
Wonderful chalet with fantastic views. Excellent walking and cycling area
Ali N. - 11/07/2015
“A faultless service. ”
We spent a really lovely holiday in this traditional and well-equipped chalet. It was the perfect environment, linking nature and the town with all services close by. Thank you to the rental team who were always attentive and quick to respond - that was a big bonus.
Jean-Luc D. - 09/05/2015
I would like to thank both the owners for this top quality and tasteful accommodation, to the managers for the perfect service, the kindness and their availability. We have wonderful memories of this perfect week in La Clusaz, a resort we will come back to, hopefully staying at Fauspe. Thanks again, until the next time.
Jean-Marie P. - 11/04/2015
“The chalet is superb. ”
We had a very pleasant and relaxing family holiday. We will be back.
Vincent B. - 19/10/2014

Olivier C. - 23/08/2014
“We will recommend you and will come back”
This chalet has everything we like: comfort, simplicity, very good taste of decoration, functional and over equipped kitchen... We recommend it to you with enthusiasm and will come back with pleasure.
Jean-Noël R. - 15/03/2014
“Very happy of our stay”
This chalet is great, with luxurious comfort and lots of charm, and a pretty view on one side of the valley. The building materials, the decoration, the sunny terrace, the surroundings and quiet location... everything was perfect! Big plus: the local transportation within reach and the proximity of the hiking trails. We love hiking, even in winter, and this chalet is ideally located between the village of La clusaz and Confins Lake (paradise for cross country skiers)! We got a warm welcome from the manager who was very kind and very efficient. In conclusion we are very happy of our stay at Chalet Fauspé!
Yannick P. - 08/03/2014
“Nicely decorated and very comfortable”
Lovely family holiday at Chalet Fauspe. Very spacious and well located near La Balme and Les Confins, so ideal for skiing and hiking. It's a beautiful place with a big living space and a wonderful view on the mountain and the pistes. Very good contact with the manager and her very efficient team.
Patrice G. - 01/02/2014
“We had a fantastic time!”
My family just spent an unforgettable week in this extraordinary lodge. Its quiet location is ideal, very close to the Balme area (great for cross country skiing too!), with stunning views over the whole Aravis range. The rooms are big and airy thanks to the beautiful French windows. The pistes of the La Clusaz skiing domain are easily accessible, by foot or skibus, and it's such a pleasure to come back to the cosy and luxurious atmosphere of the chalet after a day in the snow!
Charles D. - 23/03/2013
“Such a luxurious place!”
We will always remember the awesome time we've had in La Clusaz. There is nothing to say about Lodge Fauspe apart from : WOW! This place is simply stunning and wouldn't be out of place within the pages of an interior design magazine. We enjoyed the snow and the outdoors as much as staying indoors! We would love to come back.
Cécile M. - 15/01/2013
“This is a total architectural success! ”
Nothing beats the quality of this luxurious lodge, apart from the warm welcome we got from the staff, and the beauty of the surrounding natural wonders... the awe inspiring beauty of the surrounding area...
Beautiful spacious rooms, great furnishing, elegant interior design... This is a total architectural success! There are many activities, sports and visits available in the area and the week went by too quickly for us to feel ready to leave at the end of our stay! We'll have to come back again... maybe in winter to try the skiing slopes of La Clusaz.
Servan F. - 31/08/2012
“We'll be back! ”
It's almost impossible not to fall in love with the area, especially when you stay in such a luxurious and gorgeous place! Lodge le Fauspe is a peaceful mountain retreat with panoramic views over the Aravis range. La Clusaz is just a few minutes drive away, but we often felt like we were miles away from any kind of civilisation! There are numerous hiking trails around La Balme, with impressive viewpoints you can reach in a matter of an hour. The chalet is decorated with taste, bedrooms are spacious with very good bedding. The big sunny terrace with its built-in barbecue are obviously great extras.
Jacques C. - 21/07/2012
Why La Clusaz?
Less than an hour from Geneva, La Clusaz offers Alpine action all year round. A traditional farming village, it not only offers great skiing and superb summer activities, but also a real community feel, whenever you visit. Great restaurants, bars and nightlife combine with local markets, festivals and traditions to give you the best of all worlds.
