Home from home - perfect

5 of 5
The cottage is as perfect as the pictures show. We arrived at night with no problem to access the cottage. The following morning we woke to a lovely warm sun on the balcony and enjoyed a breakfast created from the provisions left by Katie's the night before. We received a very warm welcome from Katie and some great advice regarding the local restaurant which proved to be extraordinarily friendly and the food was excellent. We went to the region to ski and we weren't disappointed. Cote d'Abroz is close to l'Encrenaz on the other side of the Mont Cherie from Les Gets, where you can start a days skiing in the pretty alpine region. The log burner was perfect accompaniment to a cosy evening in. Location is very tranquil and relaxing, yet a short drive to Morzine.

Fantastic chalet

5 of 5
I took my family of four to chalet Isobel for Easter 1/2 term. The chalet itself is amazing, great rooms and on-suite's on the top floor and a great open plan kitchen and living room with a real fire. On the ground floor there is a proper heated boot room for drying everything and my kids (9 &11) spent every afternoon in the garden playing by the river and jumping in and out of the hot tub. Port du soleil is a great family ski area, lots of runs and you can either walk to the lifts from the Chalet or do a quick 2 minute drive as we did. There are several options on lifts so you don't have to start in the same place every day. All in all a great holiday. I have been disappointed in the past with other rentals in the alps but this one was fantastic.
