Toujours avec enthousiasme aux Gentianes

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec tristesse que nous avons dit au revoir aux Gentianes et surtout aussi aux chaleureux et sympathique propriétaire, Mr et Mme Polaud. Car c'est toujours avec impatience et joie que nous attendons notre séjour dans cet appartement qui est magnifique. En réel, c'est encore mieux que les photos. C'est déjà notre troisième visite et chaque fois nous découvrons, un plus dans l'appartement car les propriétaires vont toujours trouver quelque chose pour améliorer le confort des vacanciers. Nous avons déjà pris rendez vous pour l'année prochaine et surtout pour une journée de ski qui sera très agréable. Nous pensons aussi que nous allons prendre un abonnement tellement on s'y sent bien. A bientôt

Une location à recommander!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce chalet "Les Gentianes".

L'appartement est moderne, décoré avec beaucoup de goût, parfaitement équipé et d'une propreté irréprochable.

Il est également très bien situé: proche de toutes commodités et à deux pas des pistes de ski.

Les propriétaires ont été très accueillant.

Nous recommandons sans hésiter cette location et espérons, un jour, y revenir!

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour votre "sympathique" commentaire. Votre appréciation nous touche infiniment et pourra éclairer le choix des futurs clients du chalet "les Gentianes". Accueillir des familles "belges" comme la vôtre ou comme nos anciens clients est toujours un moment agréable qui rime avec simplicité et convivialité. Nous avons été ravis de faire votre connaissance. Nous ne vous oublierons pas car votre fils a "marqué" nos mémoires : il est rare de voir un jeune homme arrivé en short à Valloire au mois de janvier !!! Un vrai montagnard qui ose braver le froid !!! plus résistant qu'un savoyard !!! C'est avec plaisir que nous vous accueillerons pour un prochain séjour à Valloire. Un grand merci Cordialement

Un coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

C'est la deuxième fois que nous séjournons aux Gentianes, pour sa situation pas loin des pistes, pour son confort, pour son charme typiquement montagnard, pour l'accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires, et pour d'autres raisons qui font de cet appartement un bijoux. Nous avons un réel coup de cœur. Jamais 2 sans 3

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup à cette famille venue de Belgique pour un séjour dans les alpes Françaises. Nous avons pu constater que toute cette belle famille était des plus sympathiques (comme tous les Belges que nous accueillons d'ailleurs...), mais en plus était de parfaits skieurs. Encore BRAVO à la petite dernière pour sa médaille. Au plaisir (vraiment) de vous ré accueillir au chalet...

"Les Gentianes" sont un appartement très confortable, à proximité de toutes les commodités, des pistes et des télécabines.

Tout y est prévu pour un séjour très agréable. L'alliance du bois et du moderne dans tout le logement (chaleur de la déco bois et modernité des équipements)est très beau.

Les propriétaires nous ont accueillis personnellement ce qui est très appréciable ! Encore merci pour le cadeau de bienvenue !! Et pour tout le reste !!

De plus, Valloire est une station très sympa pour les jeunes et les moins jeunes.

Nombreux commerces et activités à faire en dehors du ski.

Accueil des commerçants très sympathiques.

Pour ce qui est du domaine skiable, très chouette pour les skieurs de tous niveaux.

A refaire :-)
