If you fancy a relaxing break in the mountains, but don’t want to travel too far, then a week’s holiday in the 4-star Chalets de la Serraz may be just what you are looking for.

Situated in the Aravis valley, just an hour’s drive from Geneva, this traditional mountain hotel is a relaxing haven of tranquility and provides a wonderful base for exploring the beautiful Haute-Savoie region. As one of the members of the Hotels-Chalets de Tradition (www.hct.net), the hotel retains a wonderfully authentic farmhouse character, dating back to 1874.

English-speaking Managing Director, Raphaël Gallay, told knowitall.ch, “ With our 4-star rating, we have been hosting diplomats from Geneva for many years. We now welcome this opportunity to invite knowitall.ch clients to our hotel. Families with children, couples and singles can all benefit from the wide range of luxurious facilities we offer to our guests.”


Accommodation is in the form of individual chalets with 2 separate rooms and an en-suite bathroom, perfect for a family, or in separate bedrooms (single, double, triple or suite) located in the main Savoyarde house.  All rooms have a private terrace or balcony with a south-facing view of the Etale mountain.

Breakfast and dinner are served “de coeur et de passion” in the hotel restaurant “La Grange de la Serraz”. The buffet breakfast, comprising fresh local produce, may also be served on the terrace, weather permitting. Once a week during the Summer season, there is a barbecue dinner with live music to entertain the guests.  Aperitifs are served in the fountain garden every evening from 7pm.

In addition to the numerous walking opportunities in the region, guests are invited to visit a local farm just 10 minutes walk from the hotel, and try their hand at milking a cow or tasting some of the local reblochon cheese, famous in the Aravis region.


But if you fancy something a little more relaxing, or a place to unwind after a long day’s hiking, you can always chill out in the hotel’s open-air heated swimming pool, jacuzzi or Turkish bath, as well as the indoor spa, which includes for the first time this year a new Finnish-style sauna.

If you don’t wish to bring your car on holiday with you, it is possible to book the hotel driver to pick you up from Geneva - just ask the hotel for their special rates.  A free shuttle bus is also provided once an hour between the hotel and the local village of La Clusaz during the mornings and afternoons.


As an extra incentive for booking, Monsieur Gallay is kindly offering all knowitall.ch clients a local reblochon cheese. To claim your gift, just quote this article from knowitall.ch when making your booking. If staying over a weekend, clients must book for a minimum of two nights.

Any bookings made on the weeks below will also benefit from the hotel’s special Summer promotional offer: 7 nights accommodation for the price of 6! The offer is valid for both types of hotel accommodation, i.e. bedrooms and chalets. Visit the website at www.laserraz.com for more information on rates and availability.
