About Vicky MCFADYEN

This is our family home and feels like a home from the moment you step in. We would like our guests to enjoy our books, games and library of English movies. We expect our guests will treat our home with the respect they have for their own homes.

Why Vicky MCFADYEN chose Le Tour

This is a wonderful family holiday home. We actually lived there for 2 full years with our 5 children aged 2 to 12. This will account for the comfortable feel of the chalet and the myriad of children's toys and family games.

The chalet enjoys a unique position of privacy and safety for children to play in the garden and sledge in the adjoining field in the winter.

What makes this chalet unique

The position of the chalet means it gets the very last sun in the valley every day and there are few things better than watching the sun go down in the mountain silence on a snowy terrace with a kir royale .................

The chalet has a wonderful terrace with sunny southerly aspect. In the summer, there is a large table and chairs for outdoor dining and a good barbecue.

It is a wonderful entertainment space and unique in the valley for its position and privacy.

Perfect chalet for family skiing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this super comfortable, stylish chalet. It has been beautifully designed and the space works brilliantly for families, with the open plan ground floor and basement playroom/cinema - and the terrace for that well-earned evening drink. Great views from all the rooms and very handily located for the La Balme lift. 5 stars!

Great property of style and warmth

  • 5 of 5

Chalet des Celts is well located for a good range of skiing right on the doorstep. There's a nursery slope practically in the back yard, lifts to decent piste skiing 100 metres away and a good range of ski touring and off piste options available. The chalet itself is charming, well equipped and with fabulous views down the valley. We had a great stay and would readily repeat the experience.

Fab location, great chalet

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful chalet in a gorgeous location. Just minutes from the Le Tour cable car. We (two families) stayed for a second time during the midterm and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's clean and cosy with a beautiful open fire in the main living area and a separate living area with tv and games for the children. Lots of outdoor spaces for snow playing or just to take in the breath taking view. Fab!

Just loved our 5 day stay in this utterly lovely chalet. The location was perfect with stunning uninterrupted views and a 2 minute trot to the ski-lifts. It was so cosy and comfortable that nights in were more enjoyed than our lovely dinners out!! We will definitely book it again. Highly recommended.

Perfect location to slopes and lifts....

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of adults and kids (beginners to advanced). The chalet was very convenient for slopes and lifts. The homely, comfortable and beautiful chalet was perfect for the separate daily schedules our large group needed over the week. The outdoor space allowed the kids to enjoy slides, snowmen etc post skiing. The separate living rooms allowed kids and adults to enjoy evenings separately if needed. If you are looking for a well located, convenient and comfortable ski chalet then I can definitely recommend this one. Really enjoyable ...

Fantastic welcome

  • 5 of 5

Just what the doctor ordered. A relaxing fun filled few days in a perfect setting on the edge of the mountain surrounded by snow. A wonderful get away yet close to local village and easy transport to restaurants, spa and night life. The house itself is excellently kitted out for a large group of 8 of us. Would really recommend it .
