                    We stayed in Anzere in March 2016. Four adults and 5 children. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious. It had eveything we needed. It is perfectly located for absolutely everything. Helene was very helpful and even sent a text wishing us a happy holiday! The views from the balcony are just amazing. Would definitely recommend and will certainly be back! Thanks Helene...

                    TOTALLY WONDERFUL CUTE 1970's TIME CAPSULE

                    5 of 5
                    The little 1970's time capsule that is tiny Chalet les Fetiches somehow took the name Chateaux les Festiches ! Although it is small and simple it is the ultimate luxury, peace and quite, well organised, clean, warm and nothing corporate or anonymous. Breakfast on the sunny south-facing balcony a real favourite ....we didn't want to leave. The family and organisation behind this little set up make everything smooth. We could not recommend this place enough.
