About our home

Large family home at the foot of the beautiful Retord mountains home to one of the largest cross country ski stations in Europe. Our home has 5 bedrooms and is very child friendly (baby gates, toys galore, high chairs, movies etc). There is also a strong adult elemant with a large elegant dining room, large lounge room with open modern kitchen with marble tops. There is 2.5 bathrooms and 2 separate toilets. Downstairs is a cinema room with over 1000 movies to chose from. We have English satelite and French for those wanting the local feel of things. Outside is the real star of this property with the top terrace boasting amazing views of the mountains and mont blanc (on a clear day) terrace heaters for those unexpected chilly evenings, comfortable chairs to lounge and reflect or smoke a cigar or cigarette if thats your pleasure. Cant forget our kitty cat who would love to be fed daily (she does not go inside - not allowed). The bottom terrace has a very large heated pool, very large Australian BBQ area with lounge chairs, dining table which seats 8, 12 chaise long, a love seat for two, a pond filled with fish and a gardener who looks after it all weekly. The house sits on 10 000sqm and is quiet but not secluded (neigbours are friendly and helpful).


More about us

  1. We are an Australian/French family with two small children of 4 & 2 (who are always with us) and with 3 step-children of 23, 21 and 16 (who sometimes travel with us). We are 39 & 51 and both professionals with busy lives and schedules so holidays are our great joy. We always travel with the kids nanny so room for her is imperative in the deal. We are not neat maniacs but do like to keep a tidy home and make sure our children are respectful of people and property (plus their nanny is amazing and extremely attentive).

Where is it?


We are in an old village that now has a mixture of ancient farm houses and new modern homes due to the proximity to Switzerland it is becoming a gem. There is a local bread shop in the village and thats about it.... no modern amenities here! But... at only 8 min away by car you are in a small town which has everything you could want including a movie theatre.
