OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

Chalet Habère-Poche is in the countryside, with only a hand full of homes nearby.

Habère-Poche village is 5 minutes drive away. The chalet overlooks the valley and the local mountain range. It is very quite and peaceful, ideal for 'getting away from it'. 

Located at the top of the Green Valley, Habère-Poche is a town that has preserved its charm and authenticity. It enjoys a privileged geographical location, overlooking Annemasse, Thonon and Lake Geneva, and close to major highways. From its agricultural, artisanal and forestry tradition, Habère-Poche has maintained a particularly strong identity. 

There is a family ski resort only 5 mins drive from the chalet, with other larger resorts only a short drive away. Habère Poche has two ski lifts, so you can enjoy 18 red, blue, green, and black trails for 25 kilometers, as well as a Nordic domain of about 30 kilometers. 

Also open during the summer season, the Habère Poche resort is ideal for hiking, mountain biking and fishing. Several events are organized throughout the year, such as the Printemps des Moïses in June, the popular dance and fireworks show on July 14th, the Rock'n'Poche festival at the foot of a chairlift in August, or a large local market and crafts at the same time.

 

GETTING AROUND

Chalet Habère-Poche is in the mountains, so we recommend you have a vehicle to be able to make the most of your stay. Between November and March, you need to have snow tyres/ chains/ tyre socks to be able to get around, as the snow can arrive very quickly.
