About Ian & Katie McCabe
Hi, We are Ian and Katie and we live in East Sussex. We love to travel and spend as much time as we can at the chalet. Ian is retired and a keen cyclist. Katie is a specialist teacher working with autistic children and their families and enjoys yoga and walking. Our son is a freelance graphic designer and our daughter helps manage the fabulous restaurant Carousel in London. We enjoy this area so much and we are happy to share our chalet and all that we know about the area with you. If you are looking for an alpine holiday with plenty to see and do or just a peaceful place to relax, we think La Bonne Vie is just the place for you.
Ian & Katie McCabe purchased this chalet in 2009
Why Ian & Katie McCabe chose Le Chatelard
We have visited many regions of France over the years and were introduced to the Savoie region by some friends. We immediately liked the tranquil environment and the friendliness of the local Baujus and decided it would be the perfect place to escape to all year round for a chance to practice our skiing, indulge in the local cuisine, cycle on our tandem, go for walks (autumn is just perfect) or just relax and drink the local wine! Our neighbours have become our friends and our French is slowly improving. This is our home from home and we would like to share it with like minded people who enjoy nature at its best, outdoor pursuits, amazing scenery, a peaceful and relaxing environment.
What makes this chalet unique
We built the chalet because we love the area and the views from the balcony are pretty good too. Our chalet is kept to a very high standard, has all the facilities you would need and is spacious yet cosy. The chalet is in the village of Le Chatelard which is centrally located in the heart of the Massif des Bauges. Le Chatelard has the main supermarket (Carrefour) serving the region. Other village amenities include an excellent restaurant, a bar/pizzeria, a bank, post office, art/craft shops and a small weekly market. It is conveniently located for the many attractions to be found in Annecy, Aix les Bains, Albertvillle and Chambery, all within easy driving distance. The regional park is breathtakingly beautifully and has been described as 'an island of nature, where time is not an element'. You will feel you have stepped back in time and escaped the crowds. Ideally situated for the local ski resorts (and yet still only an hour from Orelle with its access to Val Thorens and the 3 vallées). A perfect base for walking, cycling, swimming and a host of other outdoor activities. For more information on these check out Terres d'Altitude or the Tourist Office both in the village. We love this area and we hope you will love it too!
