A place to chill in the Alpine Summer

5 of 5
This is forth or fifth time we stayed at Chalet Les Alouettes in the early Summer...but who is counting. It is up on an mountain side, an idyllic setting with commanding views! Even from the hot tub you are surrounded but mountain peaks and dark dark skies for evening 'tubbing' The Chalet has everything you need to make the perfect hideaway or energetic break. The owners make this the easiest of rentals and have thought of everything to help you. We love mountain walking and this place puts us in the heart of fantastic rambling trails...we'll be back again and again. Johnny & Meredith.

Fantastic location

4 of 5
The chalet is roomy and well equipped with a view to die for! Our few small problems were dealt with efficiently by the property manager. We enjoyed the quiet location at the top of the village and just round the corner from la maison de la fôret and hiking routes. I would expect this to be 5* for a winter holiday but we were disappointed by the lack of outdoor space; the area at the back of the chalet with table and chairs is smaller than shown on the site photo and too uneven for the table and (4) chairs. Outdoors eating was not possible, which was a shame. Also, the description of the entertainment system is incorrect: the TVs are Toshiba not Apple (no airplay therefore!)and there are no DVD players or DVDs. The "hi-tech stereo system" was not connected. All this did not worry us unduly (we used our Netflix abo )but maybe more relevant to a winter visit.
