General: As would expect from a small village, they pride themselves on community spirit. To promote and enhance this they have many organized events throughout the year, information is available from the tourist office. These can range from open air concerts to beach volley tournaments. If you are worried about keeping your children occupied, there is a variety of supervised activities they can enrol for both indoors and outdoors. Local village hall offers entertainment and activities for those rainy days. In the evening the library offers entertainment such as puppet shows, circus and cinema. However if it's a totally 'children- free' time you want, then there are baby-sitters on hand to free you for a couple of hours or all day!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Le chalet est situé au bout d'un chemin et donc très tranquille. Si le temps le permet on peut déjeuner dehors. Il y a un grand champ et une belle vue sur les Aravis, avec de beaux couchers de soleil. Nous avons vu presque tous les jours des animaux sauvages autour de la maison (bouquetins, chevreuils...). La cuisine est très agréable, claire et grande. Un peu pauvre cependant en matériel, couverts et plats. Nous avons apprécié l'écran plat et internet. Le village est sympathique et il y a beaucoup de randonnées de tous niveaux tout autour.

Je conseille cette location à: Seniors, Vacanciers avec animaux de compagnie, Escapades entre filles, Familles avec adolescents, Familles avec enfants en bas âges

My child hood was in Uganda. I came to England in 1970 which has been my home with my family ever since. As a child many times I had visited the rift valley in Kenya. It is since then that I had wished for a place in mountains, & Notre Dame de Bellecombe is the perfect place. With the help of my wife who is from India, we have made chalet varni our second home.

Mr. Surendra Patel purchased this chalet in 2005

Unspoilt views from the property, friendliness and warmth of the local people has touched us.

The Ambiance, tranquility and the surrounding views will overwhelm anyone who visits Chalet Varni.

SUMMER VACATION

  • 3 out of 5
The house is totally secluded and gives a lot of privacy. The architecture is somewhat unusual. The structure is made of concrete and the finishings are sloppy. The sofa's are sleepingbeds which makes them not enitirely comfi. All the necessary amenities are in place. Unfortunately there is almost no view from the house and a practical terras is lacking. The house is very well equipped for winter lodgeings but less suitable for summer. It lacks doors to the garden and it lacks a terrace. Also, we weren't able to find a parasol.

IDYLLIC HOLIDAY VENUE

  • 4 out of 5
Its position was the best thing about it, very quiet and private. all equipment was very good and seating comfortable. As the weather was very hot we would have appreciated an umbrella. We very rarely return to a property but the area around would justify going back there.
Only one quibble; the linen we ordered did not fit the king size bed and there were no duvet covers provided.we wouldn't pay extra for that service again. otherwise excellent

CHALET VARNI - MARCH 2008

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent position of chalet, close enough to ski lifts, hire shop, ESF ski school & agent office at Mond Rond but far enough away to feel peacefully isolated. Very easy to relax after a day's skiing.
Facilities in chalet - superb kitchen, large bedrooms, great log fire.
Excellent restuarants at Mond Rond and in NdB Village if dining out.
Supermarket in village difficult to locate at first (behind Post Office) but everything you will need available here.
Fantastically unspoilt area and plenty of skiing for all abilities in linked area.
Highly recommend, will return again.

15 JOURS AU CHALET VARNI

  • 4 out of 5
Le chalet est situé à l'écart du village, au calme absolu, au milieu des champs, c'est vraiment parfait pour se ressourcer. Nous avons vu beaucoup d'animaux, chevreuils, famille de renards avec renardeaux presque tous les soirs et même un chamois au fond du champs devant le chalet. Le chalet est très spacieux avec sa buanderie au sous-sol. La machine à laver lave très bien.
2 chambres n'ont pas de volets. En hiver cela ne doit pas avoir d'importance mais en cas de sommeil léger, prévoir un masque. La literie est excellente. Les taies sont carrées. Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances, merci.
