About Christine Alfsen

Recently retired from a career as a civil servant, I decided to renovate an old family home. My house is next to the chalet.

Christine Alfsen purchased this chalet in 1980

What makes this chalet unique

The stunning views, the sunny location, and the variety of possible activities make this the ideal holiday spot. Mountain lovers, nature lovers, beach lovers, or just those looking for a quiet spot to reflect are all catered to here. Whilst the chalet has a pleasantly removed feel, you are no more than a short drive away to all sorts of exciting locations (Monaco, Nice, Italy, etc). The picturesque village of Sospel, with its famous Baroque church and fading frescoes, has also more than enough to charm holiday-makers with a vibrant village life and traditional restaurants. The property that the chalet is on has been landscaped with great care and attention to detail: the endless olive groves, the variety of trees, and the vegetable garden should please those who notice this sort of thing. The chalet has been built to be as energy-efficient as possible and to respect its natural surroundings, using ecologically-friendly materials such as bamboo, cork, and tamarack. The terrace however is its most priceless asset, ideal for eating a sunny and lingering breakfast or a romantic supper.

Sweetest little cabin, priceless views

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely the best find. If you truely want to get away from it all and relax in nature, this is the spot. Nestled on the mountain side with great outdoor space to relax and enjoy the view that goes on for miles. Christine was a gracious hostess and made me feel right at home. The cabin was very clean and had all the comforts of home plus more. The walk to/from town was very enjoyable and convenient. There are also hiking trails right from the cabin, which is very convenient. I stayed for a week and still feel like there was much more to explore. I would definitely recommend this place, and I would suggest no car. It was easy to walk everywhere, or grab the bus from town to Menton to have a beach day. I hope to make it back someday to enjoy this great cabin and area again. Thank you Christine for opening up your cabin and property to us travelers.

Charming chalet with panoramic views

  • 5 of 5

Christine’s little chalet lies nestled in the hills above Sospel, surrounded by olive trees and hiking paths. On Christine’s recommendation we decided to travel there without a car, which can be easily accomplished as there is a direct train from Nice central station (takes about 45 minutes) to Sospel. The journeys from and to the train station with our luggage were made possible by Christine’s friendly housekeeper, who gave us a lift in her car. The rest of the times when we were exploring the area we did so on foot: the village with shops, the station, bars and restaurants is a nice 40 minute stroll away and some of the area’s excellent hiking and mountain biking paths can be accessed right behind the house. The nicely decorated chalet itself is small but functional, with a large decked patio ideal for morning breakfasts in the sun and beautiful views over the valley. Très jolie!

Chaleureux chalet perdu dans la montagne des Alpes Maritimes !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré ce petit chalet avec son jacuzzi au milieu des pins et des oliviers ! C'est un endroit idéal pour se reposer loin de tout et profiter de la chaleur du sud . Le soir, le jacuzzi et le sauna sont fort appréciables. Nous remercions Christine pour son accueil, sa gentillesse et sa discrétion.

A bientôt!

Außerordentlich schön, Bett, Blick, Terrasse, Sauna und Hunde!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns bei Mme. Alfsen sehr wohlgefühlt, das Bett war gut, die Heizung funktionierte, die Terrasse mit den Sitzgelegenheiten, Liegestühlen und dem Ausblick war großartig, abends Sauna und Whirlpool zum Entspannen UND 2 wohlerzogene und treue Border Collies als Begleiter, Spielgefährten und Aufpasser - wir kommen wieder, Danke!
