Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Verbier - Chalet Gelinotte

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.

Additional Facilities:

• iPod dock & DVD/CD player

• Wi-Fi

• Washing machine & dryer

• External barbecue

• Ski locker

Saturday is usually changeover day for weekly rentals, but please ask about other days if the chalet is available. For New Year's 2016, we can offer a weekly rental or 10 days with a price to be adjusted depending on the amount of time. Just email to discuss.

Check-in time: 17.00 Check-out time: 10.00

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 4 Valleys

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.

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!

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.

Ideal for large family

This is a perfect chalet for a family with young children. Unpretentious, practical, full of charm, a loved home where one feels at home!

We very much enjoyed our holiday at Gelinotte and would definitely come back for more.

Gelinotte, Very nice, charmful and very well located chalet

  • 4 of 5

Very nice chalet extremely well located under Les Esserts, very close to the bus stop and to the ski slopes.

Extremely quiet location with great view on the mountains.

Very clean and well conceived chalet in terms of balance between rooms, bathrooms and living room. Plenty of space! Very convenient and easy to use. Will come back next year!

Great location, cosy chalet, 3 bathrooms, all working very well

  • 4 of 5

We can certainly recommend this cosy chalet for a family gathering with small children, there are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, very good matrasses, cosy bedrooms, washing machine and dryer. Great location next to the beginners lift which is ideal with small children. Another advantage was the bus that runs the whole day with few minutes intervals, dont need to start your car to do the shopping. The owner was great help and provided us with all the necessary help and assistance not only before our Arrival but also during our stay. Perfect!

Everything ensured a lovely holidays, we will certainly consider booking another time.
