In a commanding position towards the top of a steep hillside leading to the tiny hamlet of Passy, Chalet Penoutlay in Sixt fer a Cheval is less than a mile from the village centre.

Please note for 2018/19: Two chairlifts in Sixt will not be operational for season 2018/19 so the red and black runs will sadly be closed. Sixt remains part of The Grand Massif and is linked to Samoens by a Skibus service with return to Sixt via the blue run 'La Piste des Cascades'.

Built of timber, Le Penoutlay is a typical Alpine chalet offering a homely atmosphere. South facing, it enjoys some breathtaking views. To enjoy a drink or two in the fresh air whilst admiring the views, there’s nowhere better than the sunny terrace which runs along the length of the sitting/dining room.

The Chalet Le Penoutlay is part of our Essentiels range. Located on the first floor, Le Penoutlay’s open-plan living/dining area is an inviting place in which to relax. Pine-panelled throughout, it offers a traditional chalet décor with wood burning stove to create that warm feeling and has a TV with French, German and English TV channels. The kitchen area is well equipped. 

On the ground floor is a store room with washing machine, tumble dryer and a second fridge. There is space for three cars at the front of the chalet. Please note that the access road to the chalet is steep and snow chains may be required. The ski bus to Samoens and Morillon stops at bottom of access road.

Wood burner heating (wood supplied) with added electric convectors.

Sleeping arrangements (3 bedrooms):

Bedroom 1: king size with en-suite shower room, washbasin and wc
