Stylish, newly renovated former Forge in Le Biot - Sunny location and mountain views 12 km from Morzine and only 55 km from Geneva
In the sought after village of Le Biot, which is around half way between the ski resorts of Morzine/Avoriaz and Les Gets and the beaches that meet Lake Leman, this is an ideal mountain home with the best of both worlds.

The top floor is the living space with access onto a sunny large balcony with mountain views.
The entrance, via one of the original doors, leads into a room with space for coats and shoes with a laundry area.
A door opens into the snug/study with a double height ceiling and a feature wooden staircase with toughened glass paneling and leads to a stylish landing on the middle floor.
Large shower room with sink and toilet
2 double bedrooms
Master bedroom with en suite bathroom, sink and toilet
Wooden stairs lead up to:
Light and bright open plan living space with original beams and interesting windows.
Fitted kitchen leading out onto the sunny balcony with beautiful mountain views.
The owners of this property are also selling a 5-bed farmhouse ski chalet next door, and the two properties could be purchased together to form an ideal business opportunity with private residence, see:
Le Biot is a 15 minute drive (12 kms) from Morzine that gives you access to Avoriaz and the other ski stations in the Portes as du Soliel ski domain that has almost 600km of slopes and numerous snow parks.
It has a very good local bakery, a hotel with bar/restaurant/pizzeria, a highly reputed primary school and, arguably, the best Fromagerie (cheese shop) in the northern Alps.
Sport and Leisure…
Many people only think of the French Alps as a winter holiday destination, but the summer months are our best-kept secret. As the spring arrives it injects a burst of colour and life and the rivers run fast and wild from melting snow down into Lac Leman.
With local golf courses, rock climbing, swimming, mountain biking, white water rafting or simply sunbathing by the side of a lake, or on a boat, this part of the Alps offers all year round enjoyment to all.
Le Biot also benefits from the unique position of being within a 25 minute drive (20km) of the spa towns of Evian and Thonon-les-Bains. These bustling towns lay border to the stunning and warm summer waters of Lac Leman and are equipped with many beaches, restaurants on the waters edge, swimming pools, related summer activities and festivals.
How to get here:
Fly to Geneva International airport, taxi/bus/hire a car.
Train to Thonon-Les Bains taxi/bus/hire a car
Driving from Calais takes about 9 hours.
