A warm welcome awaits you in Sixt Fer à Cheval, a ski and hiking resort acclaimed 'Grand site de France'. A magnificent area of unspoilt natural beauty situated one hour from Geneva, Chamonix and Annecy.

Chalet Shanti
'Shanti' means 'peace' in Sanscrit and peace is what you experience here where the only sounds come from the waterfalls, the mountain rivers and the birds. In front of you the garden, trees, mountains and a beautiful waterfall beside the ski track at the end of its 14 kilometre run from Flaine.
Winter Activities
Cross Country and Alpine Skiing + other activities. In Winter you can put on your skis after a 5 minute walk from the chalet and either take the cross country ski track or Sixt's Alpine ski tracks. Sixt is a small family resort where tracks go from beginner to black and where there are seldom queues. It is a ten minute drive by car or ski-bus to Samoëns ski lifts which enable you to enjoy the 267 kilometres of down-hill ski tracks which link the resorts of Samoëns, Morillon, Les Carroz, Flaine and Sixt.This superb mountain area is called 'Le Grand Massif'.
There is a ski-school and also mountain guides in Sixt. Cross country skiing is also well developed and the beautifully groomed tracks go though idyllic scenery especially in the Fer à Cheval nature reserve area. Above Samöens you can ski with a view of Mont Blanc.
Other Activities.
It's also possible to walk, to walk on snow shoes, or fly, equipped with skis, in a paraglider.
Summer activities.
In Summer you can leave the chalet on foot and go on magnificent hikes
which take you past waterfalls and lakes frequented by marmots, mountain goats and chamois. Besides hiking there are many other activities for you : white-water rafting, paragliding, hang-gliding, horse riding, cycling or mountain-bike riding, tennis, swimming, rock climbing, canyonning, blueberry and mushroom gathering etc. Competitions are organised for hiking , mountain-bike riding and tennis. Guides are always at hand to accompany you if you so desire.



For all these activities, or just for a good rest, I look forward to welcoming you to my chalet where you will have at your disposal a new flatlet of 15 sq metres with a sunny terrace and garden where a table with a sunshade, 2 relax chairs and a barbecue await you.
It is suitable for 2 people. A small child could eventually be accommodated as well.
There is a fully equiped kitchenette, a bathroom with shower, handbasin and W.C. A clic-clac sofa which makes a double bed, a chair which can open out to make a spare bed, a big clothes cupboard and a T.V. / video + cassettes of films in English.
Phone messages can be left for you on my phone. Luggage, skis, bikes etc can be stored in an adjoining room.
The entrance to the flatlet is completely independant. It is visible in the winter picture of the chalet on the lower left hand side (see above)
Parking is not a problem. There are restuarants nearby.
