The chalet is near the village of Flumet in the "Pays du Mont Blanc".  It is 15 miles West from the summit of Mont Blanc (the Chamonix Valley and Switzerland lie North of Mont Blanc, and Courmayeur and Italy are to the South and East). Flumet is in the Arly Valley which joins Sallanches and the Mont Blanc motorway (from Geneva, Paris or Calais) at the North end, and Ugine, Albertville and Moutiers at the South end.  As you drive from the motorway at Sallanches, you first pass Megeve, then Praz sur Arly (a quiet suburb of Megeve), then the houses thin out and the road enters the Arly gorge before arriving at the small,  pretty village of Flumet.  The Aravis pass road branches off the West here, leading to la Clusaz, and to the East there is the pass road to les Saisies, leading to the town and valley of Beaufort.

Flumet is one of the easiest ski resorts to reach.  It's 1 hour and 20 minutes from Geneva airport.  The road isn't too step,  there are no scary precipices, and the roads are cleared efficiently when it snows.   It's also close to the railway stations at Chambery and Moutiers.  It's one of the easiest resorts to drive to from Calais (10 hours including stops).  The access road from the motorway doesn't have nearly as much traffic as many resorts, especially the Tarentaise valley (Tignes, val d'Isere, Meribel, Chourchevel, etc) which can have severe traffic jams.

In relation to other resorts, Morzine, Samoens and Flaine are on the opposite (North) side north of the Mont Blanc motorway, Chamonix is at the end of the motorway, while the big resorts of Courchevel and the 3 valleys, Tigne, Val d'Isere, les Arcs and la Plagne lie further south along the Tarentaise valley that runs from Albertville to Moutiers and Bourg Saint Maurice.

The Chalet is on a low hillside overlooking the village of Flumet and the Aravis pass, next to an ancient fortified famhouse.  Further up the hill is the hamlet of Saint Nicolas la Chapelle, and beyond that the hills rise towards the main ridge of the Aravis.  The Aravis is a long ridge running all along the Arly valley, starting with Pointe Percee in the North and leading to Mont Charvin in the South, with a dip to the Aravis pass about halfway along.  Near the Aravis pass is a notch in the ridge known as the "Porte des Aravis" where according to legend the mythical figure of Gargantua kicked a piece off that landed above the village of Beaufort to form the distinctive Pierra-Menta mountain.
