"The best place, in the best place in the Alps" - Summer guests
- English, French
We are a family of three from Surrey who discovered the Giffre Valley 12 years ago when we bought an off plan apartment.
Owner purchased this Chalet in 2014
Why Owner chose Verchaix
We rapidly grew to love the area and decided we wanted some outdoor space in the summer. We looked at a large number of chalets all over the valley and knew Chalet Cristal was the one for us as soon as we saw it.
What makes this Chalet unique
The chalet's location is just perfect in all seasons. We're close to the télécabines with a ski bus stop less than 100 m away and in summer we can walk to Lac Bleu or along the river to Samoens. The chalet enjoys huge amounts of sunshine and has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

It was the second time that we stayed with our family in this beautiful chalet. And like last year, we had a great week! The chalet is well-equipped, spacious, clean and the hot tub is a real treat after a day of skiing. The chalet is close to the Morillon ski lift and there are also great hiking possibilities nearby for people that don't ski. The property managers were super kind and were very helpful during our stay. We would definitely come back again!
Fantastic chalet in a peaceful location
Had an excellent holiday in this chalet- perfectly equipped for all our needs . Clair was so helpful in advance answering all our questions and the chalet is exactly as described. We made good use of the hot tub and gardens and the views from the chalet were great . So handy for trips to Morillon chair lifts, Samoens Telecabin, Sixt fer a Cheval and Morzine. There is plenty to do in this area over the summer even though only a few lifts are working and the weather was hot with impressive thunderstorms! Thank you for a wonderful time in your chalet Clair.
Very comfortable family chalet
Extremely conveniently located and well equipped chalet. Added bonus of large, private garden area with a hot tub and great views. Highly recommended. The owner Clair was very responsive and local property managers were there to answer any questions we had.
Lovely, comfortable house - close to skislopes and
Chalet Cristal is a lovely place to stay and a good location. It is a short drive to ski lifts in Morillon which has plenty of parking. It is a lovely 45 min walk along the river Giffre to reach the village Somoens (or a 10 min drive) - a town with still an authentic feel to it. The drive from Geneva airport was easy.
We staid with 4 adults and 3 children and the chalet felt spacious with plenty of seating on comfy sofas and large dining table. The 3 bathrooms meant no long queues in the morning. The kitchen was very well-equipped - enough cups and plates to keep us going from breakfast to dinner and night cuppa. The beds were good with nice, cotton sheets. But best of all was the wood stove which each evening warmed the house adding to the cosy atmosphere.
PS Do ask the owners for tips: they helped us with ski hire & recommended local restaurants and some nice walks.
Fantastic location; great facilities
We had a great stay at Chalet Cristal. The owner was very accommodating before and during our stay. The chalet is very comfortable with all the facitlities we required. It was a three minute trip to the telecabine station and short walks to a good boulangerie, pizzeria and delicatessen.
Amazing week at Chalet Cristal
We stayed with 8 adults at Chalet Cristal and we all loved it!
The living room is super spacious and has a fireplace, the kitchen has everything you need for people who like to cook, and the bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Additionaly, we loved the hot tub outside.
There is a bus stop nearby but we used the car since this was a bit faster and it was easy to park the car near the ski lift in Morillon.
We really recommend this chalet!
