About the property

5 Bedrooms • 3 Bathrooms • Sleeps up to 9

Chalet Gelinotte is a charming, old style chalet that has been partially refurbished. Perfect for a family or group who want a relaxing holiday and prefer the tranquillity of a stand alone chalet. The open plan living/dining area is traditionally furnished with double doors opening onto the south facing garden with fine views of the Grand Combin. It is located in a quiet residential area within easy walking distance to the uncrowded Savoleyres lift & Les Esserts beginner slopes. Alternatively you can take advantage of the free bus service since the Camargue bus stop is 30 seconds walk away and will take you either down to Medran in town or up to Carrefour which provides a completely stress-free start to your day, linking into the system part-way up the mountain. Place Centrale is about 10 - 15 minutes (downhill) walk however there are a few popular bars and restaurants close by. Chalet Gelinotte has covered parking for 1 car and external parking for 1 other.

The chalet sleeps 8/9. Upstairs there is master double bedroom (beds can be made either as twin beds or combined to be king-sized) with private south facing balcony over looking Petit Combin. There are a further 2 twin bedrooms, 1 single room, a family bathroom, and a large shower room. Downstairs there is a small bunk room (sleeps 2), a shower/WC, the open plan sitting/dining area, a well-equipped kitchen and doors opening onto the garden.

About Nancy Oliver

I am a Californian married to an Englishman and we live in London with our 2 university-aged children. We use Chalet Gelinotte as much as we can, and love it both in the winter and the summer.

Nancy Oliver purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Nancy Oliver chose Verbier

We bought this chalet with the intention of living in Verbier at some point in our future. So we made the chalet cosy and welcoming with good beds.

What makes this chalet unique

We love the sunny location, the easy access to the slopes, the ability to walk into the centre of Verbier easily and yet still be in a quiet place for sleeping and socialising. We love sitting in the garden after skiing with a beer or a glass of wine in the longer and warmer days of March and April.

Fantastic Chalet in Verbier

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Nancy's home. It was perfect for our large group of friends and family, especially being just a quick walk to the kids lift and magic carpet made it very relaxed. Everything we needed was there and we felt immediately at home. Nancy was very friendly, accommodating, and flexible. We would love to com back some time!

Owner's Response: Hi James, and thank you for your lovely comments. Glad that your entire family found the chalet comfortable and to their liking. The quick and easy access to transportation and to the ski slopes was one of our reasons for buying the chalet. We really hope to see you again sometime.

Homely chalet in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

In a tranquil yet convenient location, authentic Chalet Gelinotte is a few minutes walk from the nearest lifts at Savoleyres, a couple of minutes from buses into town or up the hill and a short walk from a mini market and an Italian restaurant serving exquisite thin based pizza. The chalet is comfortable and well equipped for cooking, dining and relaxing, with beautiful alpine views. The skiing in Verbier is renowned for its variety and challenge for all levels and Nancy and Nick have thought of everything to provide a warm welcome in their home from home. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. We want the chalet to feel like a comfortable home so I am glad we achieved that for you. We also like the fact that our chalet is so close to the beginner slopes of Les Esserts, and yet allows easy access to so many different types of slopes. And so glad that you liked the pizza recommendation at Al Capone - our local restaurant. It is so nice to have lovely guests like you, and a pleasure to make sure that your holiday was enjoyable.

Our two week experience surpassed expectations. Chalet Gelinotte is a cosy, authentic, very well looked after chalet. From this tranquil yet very convenient location there are views across the valley in every direction. The bus is a 2 min walk and the walk back after dinner in the village is 15 mins max enjoying beautiful chalets along the way. The owner, Nancy is very responsive, professional and considerate. A lovely lady. We hope to return one day soon. Kind regards Claire Gray

Summer Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this charming and comfortable chalet with children aged 3 and 1 and loved every minute! The chalet has all the facilities required for any age group, is cosy, well kept and very family friendly. Within only a few hours we were totally 'at home'. We absolutely loved Verbier in the summer and found plenty of activities suitable for all of us both in the town and in the mountains. We are hoping that Chalet Gelinotte will be available for us to rent next August!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. I know everyone sees Verbier as a ski destination, but we absolutely love it at other times. So glad that you did too!

Great Location, Comfy Beds

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the chalet in January and again in February. Both of our visits were with loads of boys. The guys were extremely comfortable in the chalet. The beds were very cozy and warm. There are 3 full bathrooms (one of which is small) which easily accommodated the large crowd.

Being located so close to the bus stop and by Savoleyres was perfect for us. We were able to avoid the Medran crowd and walk to the Savoleyres lift or take a bus up to Carrefour. During the evening the location is ideal for access to all of the delicious mountainside restaurants.

The chalet is a stand alone building which provided nice privacy and quiet.

The best part about the rental experience is the owner. Nancy is very responsive, helpful and patient. By offering to speak to me over the phone she went out of her way to provide a smooth and stress free experience. She was immediately available when we had questions during our visit.
