COSY CHALET 8-12 pers. Vallouise (renovated from 2012 to 2015)
average rating of 4.5 based on 18 reviews

A disappointing experience, with a lot of road noise.

  • 3 of 5

Les Aupillous chalet is located in Les Casse, a modern estate about 2km south of the beautiful village of Vallouse, but is set above a main road that is noisy , and quite intrusive (Not quite where it is shown on the map).

It has obviously been renovated recently, but I suspect it has been done by the owner as a DIY project, and is amateurish and in many cases badly thought out.

Examples include:

A mezzanine master bedroom that is hot, has little privacy (open to the lounge), is accessed via a steep staircase that you have to bend double to get in or out of.

A kitchen that is tiny and has almost no workspace.

Stairs down to the lower bedrooms that have a dangerous stair gate at the top.

Outside lights that light up the master bedroom at night, and can’t be switched off.

The owner is obviously a fan of technology because there are electronic gadgets everywhere, but to our mind, he would have better off paying for a more professional renovation job. Perhaps because we did not make use of tech.

The description states it is for 12 people, but in reality it is probably comfortable for perhaps 4-6 people. The bedrooms are as follows:

1) Downstairs cinema that has double sofa bed.

2) Small downstairs bedroom with 4 bunkbeds.

3) Mezzanine (studio) bedroom above the lounge with a double, a single and a cot..

4) A double sofa bed in the lounge

When we arrived the owner forgot to tell us about the fact that the small blow up spa / hot tub had a puncture and could not been used. When we asked, he said it would be fixed in the first few days. We were there for a fortnight, but it never got fixed despite many promises. As compensation, the owner did the cleaning for free (we were going to do it ourselves anyway), and did not charge for 3 broken wine glasses and a bed sheet we damaged. It is a shame about the spa/hot tub as this was the main reason for booking this apartment.

At the end of the stay it took many follow up emails to get the deposit cheque back, even though the owner had no issue that would require us to pay for anything.

On the plus side, the village and local area are beautiful, with nice bars and restaurants , and a great market. If you are into climbing, the Ailefroide area is very close and has a vast array of bolted climbs.

Overall, a disappointing experience for the price.

NOTE: The same chalet is listed several times on the site.

Superbly equipped chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 lovely weeks here enjoying a luxurious time relaxing between some great activities available nearby. Well placed for canyoning, rafting, mountain and road cycling, a high-ropes course and summer luge at Puy St Vincent and of course lots of beautiful walks in the stunning valleys nearby. The chalet has every gadget you could imagine: the kids loved the cinema room & wifi, while the terrace provided ample space for eating, relaxing and playing. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for a luxurious summer retreat!

Chalet chaleureux, très bien équipé, dans un bel environnement. Le Confort était au rdv, tout a été pensé pour se sentir comme chez soi.

Les propriétaires sont accueillants et disponibles. Tout les ingrédients étaient réunis pour passer de très bonnes vacances.

ATTENTION, Monsieur A.P. n'a pas eut l’obligeance et le sérieux pour nous restituer le chèque de caution lors de notre départ...

Après notre départ, tous nos messages et appels sont resté sans réponse, nous avons due faire opposition au chèque...

Est-ce une façon de traiter ses clients !!!!


Pour ma part, je n'y reviendrai plus jamais.

Un client très déçus...
