Chalet Fisher - October 2010

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic & excellent. Sheena is a lovely lady and nothing was too much trouble for her. The chalet was warm and welcoming, and spotless. Beds were comfortable/warm and kitchen had everything you would need and all as described in the listing. Veiws are equally as stunning and sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine looking out at the mountains was just heaven. Village and surrounding area lovely. Botanical gardens are lovely and well worth the time to walk up and around. Pleanty of local shops/resteraunts and boulongeries & there is also a local Carrfore. Would definately recommend trip round to Chamonix if you have time and trip on the telepherique up the Aiguille du Midi & Annecey if you are not too busy with skiing/rafting/walking etc. There is even an ice skating rink! We had pleanty to do and see all week. Wish we could have stayed longer. I would recommend Le Chalet Fisher to any of my family/friends & colleagues without any hesitation at all.

Great place for a skiing holiday with a family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the chalet was a very pleasant surprise. The online photos did not do it full justice -- it is a quaint and cozy chalet with wonderful views of the mountains and flooded with sun throughout the day. Rooms and bathrooms are impeccably clean and all equipment is very well maintained. The kitchen and dining room are perfect for family meals and the wood stove in the living room provides wonderful heat in the evening.

Most of all, Sheena is a great hostess. She was efficient, pleasant and helped with everything we needed, from fondue sets to arranging skiing passes. Thanks to her we really felt at home there.

Excellent accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Le Chalet Fischer in the middle of Sept 2008.

Having toured exstensivley throughout France in the past, we know how varied accommodation can be and went FULLY prepared with all that is needed when self catering.

We need not have bothered. Sheena (the owner) was there to welcome us with tea and biscuits and explain everything about Le Chalet ( A nice touch after having driven from Scotland!).

The chalet has everything you require for a pleasant and trouble free holiday. The accommodation is among the best we have used and we recommend it to anyone considering going.

Five stars all round Sheena. Well done.

Robert and Lynn.

Das Chalet Fischer ist ein sehr liebevoll eingerichtetes und individuelles Ferienhaus, mit sehr gemütlichem Ambiente und einer wundervollen Gastgeberin Sheena.

Die Umgebung bietet sehr vielfältige Möglichkeiten an, aktiv zu sein: Bergwandern, Georges erkunden, gemütliche Städtchen besuchen...

Es war ein fantastischer Urlaub und wir kommen mit unseren 4 Kids auf jeden Fall wieder😉

Familienurlaub in toller Landschaft

  • 5 of 5

Urlaubszeit: Sommer 2010

Sehr sauberes, gemütliches und helles Chalet mit sehr schöner Aussicht auf Bergpanorama.

Umfassende Ausstattung sowohl in der Küche als auch in den Bädern:

z. B. Toaster, Wasserkocher, Spülmittel, Geschirrspültaps, Salz, Zucker, Shampoo, Duschgel... .

Karten/Prospektmaterial und Reiseführer der näheren und weiteren Umgebung stehen zur Verfügung; tolle Ausflugsziele sind reichlich vorhanden.

Sofern gewünscht steht die Vermieterin mit guten Insider-Tipps hinsichtlich Ausflugszielen etc. gern zur Verfügung. Außerdem ist Sprachunterricht in Englisch und Französisch möglich.

Wir fühlten uns im Chalet wie zu Hause und konnten jederzeit auf einen

guten Rat der Vermieterin zurückgreifen.

Perfekte aber unaufdringliche Betreuung, die schon mit einem leckeren

Willkommenspaket ( Toast, Butter, Marmelade, Käse, Wein....) begann.

Insgesamt ein erholsamer Sommerurlaub, in dem wir viele neue Eindrücke

sammeln konnten.
