Beautifully positioned and well equipped chalet with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Situated on a quiet mountain road, we found this chalet an idylic spot to stay. The views of the valley below and the snow capped mountains in the distance are quite breath taking. The chalet itself is very well equpped with a large fridge-freezer, plently of crockery and general cooking utensils. There is a constant supply of hot water and the wifi reception is excellent. All in all we very much enjoyed our stay at this chalet.

Lovely gite, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday here visiting Annecy, Mont Blanc and lac Leman/Geneva.

The gite is full of character on 3 floors. We visited with 4 adults and 2 teenagers, with plenty of space and everything provided. The views are amazing from the gite, looking out towards mountains. We went in April, so there was still snow right at the tops of the mountains to look out to.

The sat nav didn't recognise the mountain roads very well and tried taking us up a steep gravel track. Luckily a local man helped direct us in by a better road. We ended up using google maps instead of the sat nav, which was better to find the property. As we arrived late at night and left early in the morning, we had the check ins and check outs the day after arriving and the day before leaving. There was a bit of confusion and miss - communication between the lady who was meeting us to do the check in and check outs, but it didn't effect our lovely holiday.

I would definitely recommend this property for a holiday in the Alpes. Brilliant for a ski-ing holiday or summer.

Thank you for a great holiday!

Peace and tranquility in the alps

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a little hamlet just down the hill from mont saxxonex , which has a bar couple of restaurants, bakery, butchers and tabac and also a ski area , (cannot comment on ski as all the time we been here no snow ) clueses the bigger town about 15 minutes down the hill for your bigger supermarkets petrol etc

The house is very nice and cosy set on 3 levels , 1 level - entrance and drying room, large hallway with staircase , double bedroom , laundry room and bathroom

2 level - sitting room , dining room , shower room toilet, kitchen , patio doors to view over valley and balcony and steps leading down to ground level

3 level - double bedroom and bunk bed room

All furnishings very nice , tv ( French channels ) radio , all white goods in good working order , electric heating and hot water very efficient , great water pressure for shower , tiled floors throughout

Big enclosed fenced in garden , great for dogs and children

The view from the balcony is wonderful changed by the minute always something different to look at , view down the valley and the church up the mountain

Very quite and peaceful properly would not have woken up if our dog did not want to go out

Marc the owner always prompt on replys with email

House was lovely and clean and warm on arrival we were greeted at the house by a local lady who showed us around and handed us the keys etc

Would recommend the house as we have felt very comfortable here and the area is wonderful did lots on travelling around to different places the scenery is outstanding

Lots of French ski resorts within 40 minutes which will be great fun in the snow !!!

Chamonix is close for bigger ski resort

If considering coming here a conversation with Marc would be beneficial as it is a wooden winding staircase to all floors and young children would need a stair gate

All in all a great stay don't want to leave and would definatly consider returning in the winter and summer for a holiday
