Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property. Spacious, superbly finished and well equipped throughout. First class check in service and speedy refund of deposit.

Huge, tastefully decorated bedrooms with oodles of space and brand new en-suites throughout. We were two families of 12 people in total and staying at Chalet Fleur made our week. Would love to return and would not consider anywhere else if this chalet was available to us.

Spacious and homely in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly want in property of this standard in a forest location but on the doorstep of ski slopes and village life.

Slept 12 of us easily without feeling like we filled the place. Proper en suites for all rooms, no closet toilets like some places.

Remote but not cut off, very quiet at the end of a dirt track, floodlight on forest through big picture windows was a nice touch.

Centre piece fire with glass surround and plenty of wood kept us cosy.

Would go back tomorrow!

Best ski vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

This is a incredibly beautiful chalet and property. We loved the decor and the ambiance of the chalet and surrounding ski area. It was great to come home to a cozy, relaxing home (and it felt like home) after a perfect, fun day of skiing. The beds and sheets were of the best quality, as where all the amenities at the chalet. We hired a chef (Susan) while we stayed there and she was the BEST thing we did other then rent this chalet. Lizzie and her husband could not help us enough and where there to answer all our questions but not intrude on our stay. They enhance the whole experience and make it easy and very user friendly, arranging restaurants, ski guides and anything else you might need. The skiing was FANTASTIC, lots of hills and terrain. We look forward to returning in the coming years and would HIGHLY recommend this chalet. It's home away from home.

Great for cycling as well!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 12 people that rented this chalet in summer for a road cycling holiday in the French and Swiss Alps. The chalet is ideally located, and very well equipped! Close to some very well known Tour de France climbs (col de Joux-Plane, Ramaz, Colombière, Aravis, Joux-Verte, Corbier). Everyone enjoyed to have their own showers/bathrooms, access to the spa, and the river below the chalet to recover from a hard day of riding. Of interest was the fact we were close enough to Morzine and Les Gets for restaurants in the evenings. Next time we come, we will also bring our mountain bikes as Les Gets is one of the best place for MTB in the world!

A luxurious, traditional ski chalet - great skiing

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults, 4 children) have stayed a number of times at Chalet Fleur. It is a tastefully refurbished traditional farmhouse combining the best of modern convenience with Haute Savoie charm.

Our first stay was the period of January 3 - mid-February 2014, and most recently for 2 weeks over Christmas 2014. We intend to return again this winter season (2015/16).

The sleeping accommodations are large and each have their own ensuite; the bedding is of high quality; the common areas are comfortable and inviting, and are well furnished. The kitchen is well supplied with everything that you need - including a beautiful, new AGA cooker.

The managers of the property are very helpful and responsive to any issue that might arise (the WiFi is great!), and the lady who cleans the chalet is extremely thorough.

The location of the chalet is beautiful - at the end of a quiet farm road in the St. Jean d'Aulps valley. We have passed plenty of beautiful, starry nights sat in the hot tub on the large wood deck enjoying the quietness of the valley.

The amenities (food stores, wine, pharmacy, etc.) are all close by - either in the village of St. Jean d'Aulps, or just 10 minutes up the road enroute to Morzine.

The Portes de Soleil ski area is truly expansive, with terrain for all levels of skiers.

We highly recommend Chalet Fleur.

Beautiful location and lovely chalet

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful chalet, fully equipped esp. the kitchen. Every bedroom was lovely, so no arguments! Great service from the lady who looked after the meet and greet etc

Parasols or the like would have been useful on the deck as it was very exposed to the heat of the day.
