Brilliant chalet in a lovely peaceful Alpine village

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay in Chalet Pic Rouge. The kitchen was so very well equipped it allowed us to prepare and cook all our meals rather than eating out. The joining instructions were perfect and everything was as advertised in the initial description. As we are avid walkers we found the array of guide books and maps to be really useful and we used the "Carte d'hôte" virtually every day to take us to a new destination. The weather was excellent during our stay so we ate outside every day on the beautiful terrace. Thank you Cathy for opening up your home so generously. We will be back sure one day to tackle those walks we didn't get a chance to do this time!
