As advertised, the chalet is located at the base of Mont Blanc and the views from the bedroom balcony and garden are spectacular! The accommodation is well equipped and very comfortable and the local neighbours were very friendly too. We were well informed at all stages of the booking and communications were excellent throughout. We would happily return to the Chalet in the future and would highly recommend! Thank you Dawn.

Kids loved the pool and the ski slope to play on. 'Guardians' Clint and Gillian were fantastically welcoming and a font of knowledge. Already planning our next visit, Tour De Mont Blanc beckons
