Between Annecy and Geneva, at the heart of the Aravis, Manigod valley offers you one of the most beautiful view of the region. Isabelle et Eric Guelpa-Veyrat welcome you in their authentic Alpine chalet.
Alpine chalet with refined decoration : cosy benches covered with sheep skins in the living room, objects and furnishings in the style of the popular Savoyard style, with some contemporary touches, favouring a laid back and relaxing atmosphere. After a day on the slopes, a snack is offered around the hearth, Savoy cake, and home made jams. In the summer, after a day picking mushrooms, one can enjoy a cup of tea on the panoramic terrace looking out at the sunset. In the well being centre, sauna, turkish bath, and outside Jacuzzi, Sylvie offers a massage using plants that she’s picked in the mountains. Soft and sweet, our bedrooms and en-suites are all equipped with a panoramic terrace or a balcony looking out over the mountains. Individual chalets can accomodate from 2 to 10 people forming a little hamlet, each one benefiting from an exceptional panoramic view. Ideal for families on holiday!
At Marie-Ange’s table, Eric Guelpa works wonders with regional produce : fish from our alpine lakes, mushrooms and mountain plants... without forgetting the wines, a selection of the best that the region has to offer.

A Place where Authenticity and Tradition are the Trade Marks
Snuggled away in the heart of a well preserved valley in the Aravis mountains between Annecy and Geneva, the Chalets-Hotel de la Croix-Fry marries the charm of days gone by with the comfort of today. Natural wood, sheep skins, wide chimneys, and collections of local popular art... Everything has been carefully thought out to create a refined and warm atmosphere. The history of the chalets-Hotel de la Croix-Fry is a family one. Isabelle Loubet-Guelpa is the 4th generation of ladies who head this chalet hotel. Isabelle shared the management with her mother Marie-Ange Guelpa Veyrat up until the latter’s demise in 2009. Eric Guelpa the elder brother, a talented chef joins his sister and received 3 degrees from the Guide Gault & Millau. In each of his recipes, based on local produce, he is inspired by the tastes of Savoy from days gone by and from his childhood.
