About Pralor Le Nova...

This stylish newly-built 5 star semi-detached chalet is on an old farm, L'Alpage du Pralor, between the beautiful village of Manigod and the ski station of La Croix Fry.

This stunning south-facing chalet is the last property in a lane off the main Manigod road, so you won't be disturbed by passing traffic. In fact, it's so well sound-proofed, you are unlikely to be disturbed by any noise at all.

You'll need your car, as it's a 1km walk to to the ski bus stop in the winter, 4km to La Croix Fry and 3km to the shops and restaurants of Manigod. However, the advantage of this quiet location is the stunning view across the Manigod valley to the mountains beyond.

In the summer, the farm is surrounded by lush green pastures, which are flat around the property - a great place for children to play. Local craftsmen were brought in for the construction, using traditional methods and stone from the old farm where possible, to ensure the building sits comfortably in its surroundings.

Larger groups of up to 16 wishing to stay in this area might wish to consider booking Le Nova with Chalet Le Peille, which sleeps 8.

The property ...

No detail has been left to chance in the design and furnishing of this fabulous property. Sleeping 8 people in 4 en suite double bedrooms (one of which is on the ground floor), Le Nova comfortably accommodates 4 couples, two families or a large group.

Each stylish bedroom has two single beds which can be joined to make doubles on request, and sumptuous French bed linen, in line with the owner’s determination to support local businesses.

There is plenty of storage in each bedroom, as well as a flat screen television with French and English channels, and wifi is available throughout the property. Most bedrooms also have a desk and chair. The bathrooms are stylish and modern, and come complete with soft towels and bathrobes.

In the open plan living area, the well-equipped oak kitchen, which has windows on two sides to make the most of the fabulous views and the light, was built by a local carpenter, and makes cooking for a crowd a pleasure. The top-quality furniture and soft furnishings were chosen with the help of an interior designer, and combine rustic mountain style in neutral colours with modern comfort.

When it’s cold outside, snuggle up on the cosy L-shaped sofa in front of the woodburning stove, but in warmer weather you’ll want to be relaxing on the sunny balconies, or enjoying a barbecue on the east facing terrace. Skiers will appreciate the ski racks and boot warmers and will love relaxing in the private hammam and jacuzzi after an exhilarating day on the pistes.

About the area ...

When you stay at Le Nova, your peaceful surroundings could make you feel like you're miles from anywhere. In fact, the pistes of La Croix Fry are just a few minutes' drive away and parking is free.

The whole of the Annecy ski resorts, including La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, are easily accessible, giving you more than 200km of skiing. Floodlights on some of the pistes mean you can even ski until 1am in La Clusaz on certain dates, and the weekly torchlit descent is an experience you'll never forget. Plus there are dedicated pistes for trying out paret racing, a home grown Manigod sport!

Cross-country skiers will find plenty of trails to choose from, and non-skiers are not forgotten, with a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, ice skating rink and cinema, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides. For the ultimate in winter fun, try paragliding on skis or ski joering - skiing while towed by a horse!

We'll be happy to welcome you to our sports shop, Veyrat Sports, in Manigod-Croix Fry where we will keep a parking space for you on request, right at the bottom of the ski slopes. All year round we'll be available to advise you on ski and mountain sports equipment.

In the summer, there’s no better place to relax than the two terraces of Le Nova (each of them equipped with a table and chairs for 8). But with so much to discover, you’ll regret it if you don’t make the most of it!

There’s no shortage of walks, from mountain trails to hiking on the Gliéres or walks to the Beauregard plateau begin at the front door. There is a table tennis table set up behind the chalet.

Adrenalin junkies can try paragliding, canyoning, climbing, mountain-biking, karting or white-water rafting - just some of the activities on offer within a few miles of Manigod. Via ferrata is a great family day out, with children as young as eight able to explore the mountains on iron walkways, secured to a harness.

If your idea of a holiday is a little less energetic, try the free open-air swimming pools at the Col de Merdassier, sample the other open air pools at Le Grand Bornand or in La Clusaz, or pack up a picnic and enjoy a gentle nature walk.

What next? 

If you like the idea of a holiday at Pralor Le Nova, check your dates against our calendar, which is updated automatically. We can hold the property for you for 24 hours if you like, so that you can make your plans. But don't miss your chance - this is a very popular chalet with OVO Network guests.

The OVO Network Review

“Virtually every window is like the frame of a picture postcard!”

The beautifully renovated Alpage du Pralor is an old farmhouse which has been split into two very smart semi detached rental properties each for 8 people, Le Nova and Le Peille. The renovation took into account that sound proofing needed to be effective, balconies have wooden barriers to give privacy, terraces are on opposite sides of the property for the same reason.

Each property has 4 ensuite bedroom and is spread over three floors. Each is a perfect base for those who value nature, space and simply stunning panoramic view.

Virtually every window is like the frame of a picture postcard! With very good quality workmanship and craftsmanship throughout the build itself, natural fabrics and colours, a hammam and an outdoor jacuzzi thrown into the mix too, each property is ideal for one or two families a group of friends, or couples. Or if you are a larger group who prefer some privacy why not rent both properties with friends and family?

The chalet stands alone at the top of a meadow with the forest behind, above a farm where you can purchase very fresh milk, cheese and butter. You will need a car to access the ski slopes and the local shops, there are some beautiful walks from the front door.

Le Nova has a terrace to the east of the property which has one of the best views over the Aravis mountains, check out the exterior photos on the site! The balconies face south. There is one bathroom with jacuzzi bath at the property (unlike Le Peille which has shower rooms only)

The two hammams are accessed via the garage, bath robes are provided. If you don't want to share a garage, or parking spaces this is not the property for you.

The owners also own Veyrat Sports, one of the ski hire shops at La Croix Fry, so guests have expert advice on which skis to rent or buy on hand!

What is the OVO Network Review?

We visit the property and write an unbiased review. What’s good? What’s not so good? We’ll help you find the right chalet for you.

From the owner

The chalet is south-facing and so guests can enjoy the sunshine all day long, summer and winter.

The chalet has been built on land which has been owned by the Veyrat-Durebex family for several generations. The original farm was built in 1846 and was on the verge of falling down, so we took it apart before it fell down, conserving all the original materials we could for use in the new build.

We had originally planned to build a family home on this site, but with our commitments with running our sports hire shop at La Croix Fry, Patrice taking care of the snow clearing at the Col, plus the changing needs of our two children as they grew up, we realised this was not a practical solution, so we decided to build a property which could be let to holiday-makers. We decided to honour the heritage of the site in the names we have chosen for the property.

The chalet is called L'Alpage du Pralor - "Pralor" is local patois for "Pré à l'ours" which means "field of the bear" The names of the two rental properties, Le Nova and Le Peille, reflect the traditional division of the farm houses in this region. Work began in 2013.

The side of the farm nearest to the sunrise - Le Nova - was where the animals were housed, and the other part of the house - Le Peille - was where the family lived.

We decided to build a "chalet mitoyen"- a pair of semi-detached chalets each sleeping 8, with independent access, independent terraces, plenty of parking and some of the most spectacular panoramic views in the Manigod valley. Even locals cannot help but be impressed by the incredible views.

The chalet is halfway between the ski fields and the village. It is a 4km drive to the Col de la Croix Fry, and Manigod village is 3km away, so a car is necessary, but we feel that the location is idyllic, and the short drive necessary to reach the piste or the village is more than justified by the splendid isolation of the setting on the edge of the forest leading up to the plateau at Beauregard.

The road is kept clear of snow by the commune of Manigod and by Franck the farmer, who lives in the farm just below the chalet. You may also meet his brother Nicolas, as he's the one taking care of the goats! He will surely supply you with fresh farm produce: hard and soft goat's cheese such as chevre and chevrotin, Tomme, reblochon, fresh butter and milk.

Throughout the year, the walking trails of Le Petit Novard, Colomban and Beauregard can be reached from the front door, whether you are walking, jogging or on snow shoes, and because the chalet is surrounded on three sides by mountain pasture, away from busy roads, it is an amazing playground and provides fantastic sledging for children of all ages. The chalet is south-facing and so guests can enjoy the sunshine all day long, summer and winter.

If you stay at the alpage you get the best of both worlds!

We'll be happy to welcome you in our sports shop Veyrat Sports located at Manigod-Croix Fry where we will keep a parking space for you on request, right at the bottom of the ski slopes. All year round we'll be available to advise you on ski and mountain sports equipment.

Guest reviews

“Everything was as expected”

We were late and hosts were nice and welcomed us at 10pm. Everything was as expected and we had a nice time. We will consider returning in the future.

— Ionut C. Aug 2022

“Nothing short of superb”

We were a group of cyclists and rented both Le Nova and Le Peille. The chalets are nothing short of superb. All rooms and facilities were perfect. I've rented places before but rarely have any been so clean and well prepared. Beautiful location, extremely well appointed and spotless properties. There's nothing lacking here at all. Well organised hosting. I can't fault this booking and would not hesitate to return.

— Simon R. May 2022

“The jacuzzi with the mountain view was the highlight!”

Beautiful place in the french moutains. The jacuzzi with the mountain view was the highlight!

— Roman L. May 2022

“Marvellous ki trip”

We had a great stay in this chalet which was in all respects in line with what we expected. The chalet was very well equipped, big + for the fireplace, the hammam and the outdoor jacuzzi. Élodie who welcomed us was very friendly and Mr and Mrs Veyrat gave us valuable advice on outings (on skis and on foot). It is a wonderful property, to be remembered and the ski area is also very nice.

— Margot D. Jan 2022

“Thank you for an excellent stay”

Thank you Anita for your great welcome! We also suggested great ideas of activities and visits in the area. The chalet is lovely, well equipped, and there is a good farm nearby selling excellent cheese.

— Frédéric S. Jan 2022

“Very nice stay”

The chalet was immaculate, beautiful, spacious and in a great location. We had beautiful walks around and visits to local attractions. Thank you very much!

— Sébastien C. Dec 2021

“Breathtaking views and perfect stay”

We enjoyed the chalet in its entirety. The incredible views over the valley are breathtaking. The terraces are very pleasant for enjoying family meals. The little extra for us was having ensuite bathrooms in all the bedrooms! Our expectations were exceeded and the value for money is really there. Thanks to the owners and the manager.

— Paul D. Oct 2021

“The type of rental we love!”

It was clean, well equipped and functional, very comfortable, and the owners were delightful.

— Laurence C. Jun 2021

“Splendid view, lovely owners, comfortable chalet”

This rental was top notch from start to finish. Maybe a little hard to find depending on your GPS, but the owner helped us out, and later she advised us on hikes in the area and we weren't disappointed! We highly recommend!

— Clement S. May 2021

“Beautiful chalet in the heart of Manigod valley”

The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The chalet is superb and located in the heart of the valley with a superb view (especially from the jacuzzi!). A special "hello" to the cows who accompanied us during our stay in this bucolic setting. A haven of peace after several Parisian lockdowns.

— Guillaume D. May 2021

“A perfect place”

Everything is well thought out so that the guests enjoy moments together and also have their privacy. Impeccable cleanliness. A perfect stay where the snow was very present all week long.We chose this chalet to spend time as a family despite the covid crisis, and we made the most of our reunion.Of course no skiing but we found plenty to occupy ourselves, especially in the evening after returning from activities.Everyone was able to enjoy quiet time around the relaxing atmosphere of the wood stove, and also enjoy the possibility of cooking all together. The chalet is isolated and it's great, but far from the shops. Be careful to plan the shopping well so as not to have to make additional trips (especially during curfew!).

— Isabelle L. Mar 2021

“Perfect stay and wonderful cabin”

Everything was perfect - a great service, view, hotel-quality equipment. Punctuality and professionalism.

— Delautre A. Mar 2021

“Superb standards, great landscapes”

This is the second time that we have rented Chalet Nova with our children and we are always delighted. The cleanliness, the comfort of the bedding, the equipment ... everything is great. The welcome is very warm and Anita is very attentive to her tenants. We recommend and will be back again!

— Mylène R. Jan 2021

“Just fab!”

Congratulations and big thanks to the owners, Anita and Patrice:-)

— Nicolas M. Jun 2020

“Absolute tranquility and beautiful deco”

We loved our stay in this well maintained chalet, with a great hammam and jacuzzi. In these COVID19 times, everything made us feel safe, with sanitizing gel available at the property. The owners were there on arrival and departure. Only request for our next stay: a few vases for the flowers, and a pressure cooker ;)

— Sylvie N. May 2020

“A superb peaceful chalet”

An excellent stay in a very comfortable chalet. The view over the mountains is impressive. We loved the location of the chalet and the tranquility, the view, the comfort and the owners' helpfulness. Being so close to La Clusaz is a real bonus. A big thank you to Anita and Patrice for their warm welcome.

— Sandrine R. Aug 2019

“Thank you!”

We have spent several holidays at L'Alpage du Pralor, and we've enjoyed every one. Anita and Patrice are very helpful, even with the slightest problem. That is why we always look forward to our family holidays at the chalet.

— David B. Jul 2019

“Wonderful holiday”

The valley setting is fantastic, the en-suite bedrooms are perfect and the table tennis/football an extra treat.The immediate surroundings are very peaceful. This was our 4th visit to the area because we love the walking, lake Annecy and the cycling.

— Amanda C. Jul 2019

“A holiday which lived up to its promises”

A very good level of equipment in this top-of-the-range chalet (comfortable bed linen, steam room, hot tub). The location is excellent (quiet, unbelievable view), the property is beautiful and well maintained, the interior is well laid out. And to top it all, the pistes are nearby.

— Annick T. Mar 2019

“An excellent week-end at Chalet Le Nova”

Everything was perfect. This is a wonderful chalet with great facilities and quality equipment. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy mountain activities. Thank you to the owners for their kindness. We'll be back for sure!

— Corinne B. May 2018

“A magnificent week”

We had a magnificent week at the Alpage du Pralor. We felt really at home at Le Nova. The surroundings and the quality of the accommodation are exceptional. We really loved Manigod and the skiing at La Clusaz. Our one request is to come back again next year!

— Alain & Caroline C. Feb 2018


We loved everything about this rental. The beauty of the landscapes is breathtaking.

— Françoise N. Dec 2017

“Very satisfied!”

Organization uncomplicated and reliable. Chalet perfectly equipped. Indoor and outdoor installations very clean. Photos correspond to reality. View fantastic. Overall very satisfied. Perfect furnishings, quiet location.And we appreciated good hiking, and to be close to Lake Annecy. If you want a little funny hint: The Germans like to drink the coffee from large cups.

— Stefan A. Sep 2017

“We will be back next year”

We had a great week at Pralor Le Nova. The chalet is magnificent, comfortable and very well located. The view is extraordinary, all the equipment is top quality, the welcome is warm and the advice from Anita and Patrice was very helpful.

— Isabelle Y. Apr 2017

“Beautiful chalet”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such amazing views, a very comfortable & well presented chalet. The Croix Fry pistes were excellent for our family & very close by. Veyrat ski shop (the owners' shop) was excellent & it was a pleasure to meet Anita - she & her staff were very friendly & helpful.

— Anna L. Mar 2017

— Anne Sophie H. Mar 2017

“Superb, and perfectly equippped”

We had a marvellous holiday in this very beautiful and comfortable chalet. The view is wonderful and you get the sun from the morning, which puts you in a good mood for the whole day. The chalet is superb and perfectly equipped. As for the jacuzzi, which looks on to the snow-topped mountains, it's fabulous!

— Nathalie A. Feb 2017

“Peace and quiet”

A second stay which was just as good as last year. The owners are charming and helpful. Close to walks, village and resorts.

— David D. Oct 2016

“Really excellent”

The Alpage du Pralor is nestled in a secluded but not isolated part of Manigod, on the edge of the forest, which makes it even more special. Once again we had a wonderful week in the magnificent and well preserved village of Manigod, and we hope we will continue to enjoy it for a long time yet.
