Fantastic, relaxing holiday in this beautiful chalet that has a unique character and atmosphere.

5 of 5
Another great holiday for us in this magical 'tree house' chalet! The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and the living room had lots of comfy sofas for reading, relaxing and playing games - we had many fun evenings in there! We had plenty of hot water and we love the new shower room Steve. Thank you to Valentin, nothing was too much trouble for him. The kids loved playing in the garden and hot tub and made a cool den in the woods! The scenery is magnificent and there is so much to do in the Chamonix Valley and surrounding area. We will definitely see you again next year!

Fantastic time in Saint-Gervais

5 of 5
This is a lovely apartment, spacious, clean & tidy & it was a wonderful surprise to see a very nice bottle of wine & box of cookies waiting for us on the dinning table. The apartment has fantastic views from both balconies & it was wonderful waking up every morning with views out over the village & mountains & then enjoying evening drinks on the main balcony watching the magnificent sunset over Mount Blanc. The apartment is in an ideal location for both the village & the main gondola station, both of which are only a 10 min walk away. We stayed in & cooked meals several times during our stay as everything we needed, pots & pans wise, cutlery etc was all provided in the lovely open plan kitchen. The double bed was extremely comfortable, in fact I had some of my best nights sleep on this bed. There is wifi available which was great so we could keep up with what was going on in the world if we wanted too. Louis was a great communicator & responded very quickly to any inquiries both before & during our stay & his agent made sure that he was there to greet us & show us around the apartment when we arrived. We love Saint Gervais & have stayed in several apartmenst & chalets over the years & have never stayed in the same place twice, however we will certainly be looking to re-book with Louis if possible next time we are looking to return to the Alps. Thank you Louis & look forward to staying with you again Nina
