Great Chalet overlooking Grand Massiff

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a fully equiped inexpensive chalet for a ski trip with some friends. This property was perfect. Close to the chair lifts and surrounding villages with all the ammenities needed for a group of friends to have an enjoyable experience.

If you are looking to visit this part of France I would highly recommend this chalet.

Having a car to get around is an advantage

Beautiful Chalet overlooking Grand Massiff

  • 4 of 5

We want to pass on our thanks and best wishes as your chalet was fantastic for our Christmas ski holiday. The pictures do not do it justice on the inside so a very nice surprise when we arrived. Beautiful views and only a 100m meters to the bus for skiing or just going into town. Centrally located in the area and so easy to drive to the local towns and villages. The hotel just below the chalet in the village was a great spot for a pint or two and the owners were fantastic people to talk with and the food in the restaurant was fantastic. The perfect peaceful retreat away from the hustle of things but still close enough to make it convenient to do things.

Gezellige en praktische Chalet, mooie locatie

  • 5 of 5

Het was reeds onze vierde skivakantie in deze mooie en erg praktische chalet. Dat zegt waarschijnlijk al genoeg. We waren er deze keer zelfs voor 2 weken. Dan was de aanwezigheid van een wasmachine en droogkast erg praktisch. Het is er zeker voldoende ruim voor 6 volwassenen. In de keuken is al het nodige aanwezig. Het skigebied is ook een aanrader, zeker de combinatie met Flaine. De traditionele Savoy keuken hebben we al wat gehad maar in Samoëns deden we een prachtige ontdekking: Aux Becs a Fleu.

Prettige vakantiewoning in prachtige omgeving!

  • 5 of 5

Wij verbleven wegens onze fijne herinneringen aan deze vakantieplek dit jaar voor de tweede keer in La Sitelle. Ook dit jaar hebben wij en onze kinderen van inmiddels 9,11 en 13 weer genoten! Het huis is prettig ingericht en voorzien van alles wat je nodig hebt. Het zwembad is heerlijk, ruim genoeg en wordt goed onderhouden. Voor ons vormden stevige bergwandelingen met prachtige vergezichten, gevolgd door een heerlijke duik in het zwembad nog steeds de perfecte combi voor een geslaagde vakantiedag. Wij zijn nog meer van de omgeving gaan houden. Naast wandelen in de bergen vormen bezoekjes aan het mondaine Genève, Annecy en Chammonix aan de voet van de Mont Blanc een prettige afwisseling. Een aanrader voor actieve gezinnen.

Owner's Response: Wat fijn dat jullie zo genoten hebben van het huis en de omgeving. Als verhuurder probeer je het huis zo in te richten dat huurders comfortabel kunnen verblijven en het naar hun zin hebben. Heel leuk om terug te horen dat we daarin geslaagd zijn. Jullie zijn van harte welkom om in de toekomst weer van huis en de Alpen te genieten! Dank jullie wel voor de goede recensie.

Fijn Zomerverblijf

  • 5 of 5

Begin juni een aantal dagen doorgebracht in het chalet. Huis is uitstekend ingericht en alle beloofde voorzieningen zijn aanwezig. Het overdekte deel van het terras is robuust, zodat je bij veel zon ook prettig in de schaduw kan zitten (en bij regen droog). Het zwembad heeft forse afmetingen en is een extra meerwaarde. Vanaf het huis heb je mooi uitzicht op de (in juni nog besneeuwde) toppen van het Grand Massif.

De directe omgeving biedt goede mogelijkheden om te wandelen. Wandelroutes zijn goed aangegeven. Wel rekening houden met wat stijg- en daalwerk; voor wandelingen in het vlakke moet je wat verder weg (paar kilometer).

Al met al prima omgeving om de zomervakantie door te brengen.

Mooie woning net buiten de drukte op zonnig zuiden

  • 5 of 5

Uitstekende woning met alle gemakken en voorzieningen van thuis.

Door de verdeling van woonkeuken beneden en huiskamer boven, was er snel een plek voor iedereen. Wij hebben samen met onze 4 kinderen in de leeftijd van 14 tot 19 jaar hier een heerlijke wintersport vakantie gehad. De capaciteit van het skigebied in combinatie met Flaine is ruim voldoende om op alle niveaus te kunnen genieten. Met de auto of de skibus ben je in een paar minuten thuis en kan je nog heerlijk nagenieten in de zon. Ook al waren wij in het hoogseizoen viel de drukte bij de liften mee. Enkel de laaggelegen liften zorgde soms voor wat vertraging.

De twee restaurants in het dorp zijn aan te raden, maar in de keuken van deze vakantie woning zijn alle zaken beschikbaar om ook thuis heerlijk te kunnen koken/eten.

Overige zaken, prima WiFi verbinding, Nederlandse TV zenders, eigen wasmachine en droger. Wij komen hier zeker nog eens terug.

Charming, detached cottage (living space approx 110 sqm) with swimming pool, up to 6 people at the center of the picturesque village Verchaix (altitude 800 m) in the Vallée du Haut-Giffre. The chalet is on the sunny southern slope, has a beautiful view and features an outdoor swimming pool. In winter the slopes of the 'Grand Massif du Mont Blanc' , 260 km, are waiting for you. The ski bus stops around the corner and makes it easy to go out. In summer the Vallée du Haut-Giffre a beautiful and popular holiday destination for active and less active holidaymakers. Look at

Other Activities: adventure park, rafting, climbing steep wall

Golf: The ski area is called 'Le Grand-Massif du Mont Blanc' and offers excellent skiing and snowboarding. In total there are around 260 km of slopes with different difficulty categories, for both the beginner and experienced skier. Children under 5 are free to use the elevators. In Morrillon there is a 'Village des enfants' (child care). The ski area is formed by the villages of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon, Les Carroz and Sixt. Because the height reaches to 2480 meters, the snow is great. In case of lots of snow, one can ski down into the valley untill a height about 600 meters. The more than 80 elevators in the area makes daytrips possible and ensures that you will not get bored quickly. The majority of the lifts consists of chairlifts. In addition, several fast gondolas and a smaller number of tow lifts. The area has several 'jam-parks' designed to practice jumps. Very special is the slope 'les Cascades'. From the top of Flaine, you descend 14 km long continuous down to the village of Sixt. Afterwards you return with the free ski bus to the ski lifts. There are plenty of restaurants where you can enjoy fine weather on the terrace. There are also several good picnic facilities (tables, benches, toilet) in the area where you can make free use of your packed lunch to eat.

Ski: From the chalet you can take the ski bus (step around the corner) to the cabin lift in Morillon (2 km). By car you can be there in a few minutes. You can park for free on a large parking lot about 100 meters from the lift. In the village of Morillon the closest ski school is located and there are several shops where you can rent ski equipment. Your ski passes you can buy at the ticket office from the gondola, or can be pre-ordered through internet. For the 'ski de fond' enthusiasts, there are plenty of opportunities. There are 66 km 'ski de fond' piste in the valley of the Giffre. From Morillon to Sixt Fer à Cheval is a slope with several side trips from moderate to severe levels. There is the possibility to ski de fond (cross country) on the slopes of Croix d'Agy and the Col de Joux-Plane. This pass is 1700 meters high and there are 30 km marked pistes.
