We really enjoyed our stay in this mountain apartment. We stayed in the upper apartment, very clean and has everything we needed. Wonderful view! We found the beds a bit hard but that's of course personal. Murielle keeps the apartment very clean and has high standards/ this is very positive. We really appreciated the folder she had of walks in the mountains in this region which helped us choose some wonderful day hikes! We found the apartment Edelweiss on the small side for 5; it's doable but there is only a couch and large chair in the living room, so not all of us could fit on the comfortable chairs @ the same time), but we had a great stay.
Stayed at the beautiful chalet maison de heidi for a week in February.This was our first skiing holiday and we really enjoyed our stay. The chalet was really nice and comfortable with stunning views from the balcony of the moutain resorts montchavin and couche opposite.The chalet was very modern and well equipped with the log burner a real bonus after a long day on the slopes.The chalet is well placed to reach all of the ski resorts by car (10 to 15 minutes montchavin )and the town of Bourg St Maurice although this is at times is not for the feint hearted when there is snow on the the mountain roads!! Murielle the charming owner was on hand on our arrival and during our stay for anything we needed and gave us good advice on where to ski (we chose couche which was excellent and more than adequate for us beginners) We decided to drive from england three quarters of the way and stay at a hotel overnight before completing the last 200 miles the next day. A word of warning if you are considering driving. The final leg of the journey (200 miles) took 9 hours !!!!The traffic was horrendous.Will certainly be returning next year but will catch the eurostar ski train from St Pancreas and hire a car from Bourg st maurice. Thanks again Murielle
En couple, nous avons passé une semaine dans ce petit chalet, logement pouvant accueillir 4 personnes. L'endroit était mignon, propret, convivial et nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous. Il n'y avait pas de neige, aussi nous avons pu profiter de la montagne pour faire des randonnées, des soirées cocooning à la maison et ça nous a fait du bien! Il y a une zone commerciale à 15 minutes du chalet (en voiture) et une bonne boulangerie dans le centre de Bourg-St-Maurice (10 min de voiture), ce qui était parfait pour nos fondues, raclettes etc. Le village est calme, silencieux la nuit, le logement est équipé d'un poêle à bois très sympa. En résumé, de très bonnes vacances reposantes!
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour en famille dans le sympathique chalet de Muriel. L'endroit est cosy, très bien équipé et fonctionnel. Et Muriel a à coeur de faire plaisir à ses hôtes. Villarivon est un joli village perché, point de départ d'un grand nombre de ballades et marches. A recommander !
A short drive from Bourg St. Maurice, the village is easy to find and charming--just like the apartment and host. The upstairs apartment was warm and comfortable and we found the kitchen to be particularly well appointed (we enjoy cooking). I would definitely recommend this property.
Thanks Murielle for taking so good care of us. Small details that made our stay pleasant such as advice for taxis, recommendation of mountain guides, helping us getting the fire place going, wine tasting of Savoyard wines and much more.
Murielle's place is excellent when you ski hors piste/randonee and you never know more than a day in advance which mountain is to be climbed and from which resort. From the Chalet, you have total flexibility for Les Arcs, La Plagne, Tinges and Val 'Isere. That is what we were mainly looking for - and got it.
I also had the feeling that we got a lot of space for a very reasonable price compared to staying in one of the resorts. I am sure I will be back!
