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.

A beautiful location with access to a wide variety of activities.
The chalet was fantastic! A great location for peace and surrounded by nature. The chalet was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bed is super comfortable. The deck looks out over the most awesome view of the mountains across to Italy.
Christine was a wonderful host and gave us some great tips of places to visit. Her two dogs also kept us company!
Sospel is a 40 minute walk away and has good restaurants, a supermarket, bank and pharmacy.
Having a car meant we were able to travel around the area which was fabulous and gave us more options, although trains and buses run from Sospel to neighbouring towns.
We were able to wild swim just a 30 minute walk away in the most beautiful pools. Hiking trails run from the chalet and there is paragliding from the top of the chalet's mountain.
The wildlife around the chalet was fantastic with pygmy owls, bats, butterflies, lizards and even two donkeys!
We hope to visit again.

Amazing view and location
This is a beautiful property with an amazing view. Christine was a great host and had good suggestions for places to eat. You won't be disappointed!
I truly enjoyed Emily's visit at the chalet. She is the perfect guest interested in her surroundings, tidy and discrete.
I hope to see her again.
Sweetest little cabin, priceless views
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.
Dear Helena ,
Thanks a lot for your nice comments . I truly hope you visit again one day.
All the best
Notre séjour à Sospel

merci de votre aimable appreciation . je serai ravie de vous recevoir a nouveau.
Charming chalet with panoramic views
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!
Leuk huisje, prima bed, sanitair was beperkt.
Prachtig uitzicht over de bergen en lekker rustig. Mooi terras en hottub was aangenaam. Keuken was eenvoudig, slaapkamer was top. Minpunt was de vliegenoverlast.
