The town is a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cozey, and convenient location. However the communication between the hostes and I were poor. As I was only told as that we need to bring our own towels and linen for bedding after we had arrive and I asked where it was!!! Very inconvenient trying to find these items in a small town, let alone after 7pm also!! Other then that, it's a lovely place to stay!!

Great location. Easy access to lots of sights and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet provided all that our family of four needed - and lots of room to spare. I would recommend it to anyone. The only confusion we had is that the owner does not provide towels and sheets, so we had to pay extra for a local Chalet service to provide them as we obviously weren't going to pack towels and sheets from the U.S.

Great Property, well recommended

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location with great views.

This was probably the warmest place that we have stayed at that had character to the property.

The 500 meter walk to the ski lifts did feel a lot longer when you have young children, and you are carrying the skis's and poles and walking in your skiing boots, we opted for someone driving us to the Gondolla which was about a 30 second drive or a 8 minute walk.

Eating out and drinking out is very expensive here, even buying the ingredients from the local shops was quite expensive, so if you are self catering i would say take your own food with you, 2 chicken breasts were 10 Francs (about £8.00)

Eating on the mountain, 21 francs for a burger and chips and 4.70 Francs for a small bottle of Fanta, so if you can eat at home all the better.

The apartment was lovely, and 1 of our party said the best he had ever stayed in, and would definitely go back again, which is very unusual for him!

Overall good experience and can definitely recommend the apartment, the sking is not as good as in France as most of the lifts are either T-Bar's or Button lifts which becomes very tiring for the younger members of the skiing party, but as a bonus to that, the lifts had no queues at them at all, not sure if we were just lucky, but we never waited any more that 4 people in front, so working that out against the lack of runs, i would give the skiing the thumbs up also, if we had french queues to contend with i would probably not been very happy!

A great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

The home is well decorated and very clean and modern. The 3 rooms are very quiet. The location not far from the center is efficient. The balcony is really great for breakfast with a fantastic view. I recommend warmly this property.

The global place is, in summer, fantastic for walking in the mountain, and the annivier free pass facilitate all the activities. Great

Charmant vieux chalet de Grimentz

  • 5 of 5

Le Vieux Mélèze est vraiment charmant, très confortable est idéalement situé à 10 minutes à pied des télécabines et également à 10 minutes de la Coop pour faire toutes les courses.

Les 3 chambres, la mezzanine et les deux salles de bain permettent d'être très confortable à 8 personnes, pour faire la cuisine, il y a aussi tout ce qu'il faut.

La seule chose qu'il faut savoir est que ni les draps, ni les linges de bain ne sont compris, par contre la gérance qui s'occupe du chalet en fournit sans problème.

Bref, nous reviendrons, merci :)

Une belle semaine à Grimentz !

  • 5 of 5

Un beau chalet très confortable, surtout la pièce à vivre avec salon, salle à manger, une cuisine bien équipée et ouverte, le tout bien ensoleillée avec une terrasse face aux montagnes.

Mobilier mélange de moderne et de rustique, très cosy !

Au calme, à 500m environ des commerces et du centre (supermarchés, boulangerie, restaurants,...), de la télécabine et des car postaux, bien pratique.

3 chambres avec placards, 2 salles de bains petites mais bien équipées (dont des étagères).

L'échelle pour les lits en mezzanine est adaptée aux personnes souples et musclées !

Le chemin et les marches pour descendre au chalet avec la neige et le verglas sont assez délicates.

Une adresse à recommander pour skieurs (possible d'accéder au domaine de Chandolin/Saint-Luc que nous avons beaucoup apprécié, à 1h de car), randonneurs (chemins pour tous les villages autour) et ceux qui veulent juste se reposer dans un beau cadre en pleine montagne !

Owner's Response: Karin Arnette hat unser Chalet in einem außergewöhnlich guten Zustand hinterlassen. Ich konnte mich persönlich davon überzeugen, da ich direkt anschließend für 4 Tage in unserem Chalet war. Ich konnte ihre Wertschätzung spüren und bedanke mich für die Bewertung. G.H.Dietrich
