Breathtaking views, exceptional nature.

  • 5 of 5

My overall impression of the property was awe! The cabin is absolutely beautiful from the outside and once you are there the view is phenomenal. Surrounded by mountains with snow covered caps and infinite amounts of snow all around; thus the skiing area is near by. Gorgeous little village just below with bars and attractions for those who opt out of skiing. Plenty of activities for every age as long as you make the time for it.

As soon as you walk in the cabin you see the wood furniture and rock walls reflecting the nature of the area. Spacious kitchen full of appliances to cook comfortably. On the same floor is a big dinning/living room with a big wooden table and benches including a fireplace and a closed wood burner. The second floor has the bedrooms and two bathrooms. Everything was impeccably clean and in accordance with our high standards. The photos on the website were accurate as well as the amenities listed.

We loved it so much we even went a second time during the fall, and the area that was previously covered in snow was then naked and full of trails for those that like hiking. The views from those walks are indescribable, the colors and running streams of water were perfect for picnics and little brakes from walking. It was a really amazing experience in every way. The welcoming and attentiveness of the owner made us feel at home as we stayed for more then just a couple of days. I can't wait for us to go back again and definitely recommend it to family and friends!

Great location, poor chalet

  • 2 of 5

The location is indeed brilliant, great views and directly by the hiking path. The chalet is not great and overall I felt overpriced. It is very dark, dirty and lacks investment and refurbishments. It is not well maintained and it is not very well suited for children under three. For instance the wooden patio needs urgent care as splinters are abundant. We found rubbish in various places in the house and it was rather dusty. We constantly reminded our children not to touch anything for fear they would terminally break already half broken equipment. With just one toilet it would also add substantial discomfort of its own kind were you to visit with a group of 15. I would say no more than six adults or 8 in total.

Dépaysement total

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour entre amis!!!

Nous étions 12 dont 5 enfants de 4 à 10 ans.

Agréables moments au coin du feu le soir.

Le logement est super pour partir à plusieurs.

Sa localisation est magique au milieu de la montagne. Le couché du soleil y est merveilleux.

La station est très sympa et très convivial.

A bientôt j'espère.

Confort et authenticité.... superbe séjour !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Idéal pour un dépaysement total. Nous étions 10 dont 2 enfants de 5 et 6 ans.

Le chalet est situé au milieu des pistes de ski, offrant un dépaysement hors des autres locations beaucoup moins charmantes dans le centre de la station qui est tout de même facilement accessible.

L'accueil et la montée au chalet en dameuse aménagée à notre arrivée était magique ! Les enfants ont adorés et nous en gardons tous un super souvenir.

A l'intérieur il y a tout le confort nécessaire, le chalet est très bien équipé avec tout le nécessaire et même plus (wifi, écran plat...), les enfants ont adorés les lits en mezzanine et la décoration est très accueillante.

Nous avons passé de très belles soirées autour d'une raclette et au coin du feu de cheminée avec largement assez de place pour nous tous autour de la table et près du feu.

Le must : le retour des pistes jusqu'à la porte de la cuisine en ski sans parlé de la vue imprenable au-dessus des nuages !

Je recommande fortement ce chalet et y retournerai pour sure lors d'un prochain séjour à Orcière.

Cadre exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Cette authentique batisse montagnarde bénéficie d'une situation assez exceptionnelle avec une vue imprenable sur la vallée.

Elle se trouve au calme, des itinéraires de randonnée passent juste devant la porte.

Les enfants partent volontiers marcher à la découverte des marmottes!!!

Côté logement, on apprécie la convivialité de la grande pièce à vivre ainsi que la vue offerte par la terrasse baignée de soleil.

Situation idéale !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine estivale dans ce chalet en famille et le point fort est indéniablement la localisation. Le chalet surplombe la vallée et offre un panorama incontournable. Le réveil avec petit déjeuner sur la terrasse face à la vallée est un de nos plus beaux souvenirs.

Serge, qui s'occupe du chalet sur place, a été très disponible et agréable. Il s'est adapté à notre horaire d'arrivée et nous a donné plusieurs itinéraires de balade à faire.

Côté confort, le chalet est en très bon état, avec une cuisine très grande et moderne. Nous avons eu la possibilité de cuisiner des plats raffinés tout en étant nombreux. La pièce à vivre et les chambres sont agréables et lumineuses.

Je recommande vivement si vous aimez vous retrouver au calme et profiter de la nature et des belles randonnées du coin.

Owner's Response: Cela fait très plaisir de recevoir une famille qui sait apprècier la montagne. La communication avant et pendant le séjour a été parfaite. De plus le chalet est resté dans un état de propreté parfait. Je recommande vivement cette famille pour toute location.
