In summertime, we are looking forward to welcome you at Résidence La Joly. In the middle of Portes du Soleil, you are in a paradise for mountainbikers, hikers, fisherman, swimmers and mountainlovers in general. You can stay in a luxurious and fully equipped apartment or our cozy B&B.

The residence has been built in 2000 by Cor and Judy Overeem. They bought a piece of land in the village La Chapelle d’Abondance in France, right in front of the slopes, and created 5 chalets in Austrian style. In this chalets you find several luxurious apartments, B&B rooms, a private skishop, a loungeroom with chimneys and a Grand Café.

La Joly is known for its high standards and excellent customer reviews. In this place, a happy winter or summer holiday is guaranteed.

It was such a relieve to be in the mountains, and we really enjoyed the surroundings, the good food and lovely accomodation Cor and Judy have in the middle of the Swiss-French Alps!
