Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an excellent week. Finding somewhere for 3 generations of two families with diverse skiing abilities and appetites is not easy but the week in Megeve was hailed by all as an enormous success.



Your chalet is awesome, it worked perfectly. Much credit must go to Josh and Kirsty, they were endlessly attentive, helpful and professional. The food was excellent, I could not fault a single course of any meal. Josh's patience as chauffeur amongst frequently chaining requests was universally applauded and always with a smile. All this topped by epic snow falls!



It is now top of the list for next years skiing venue.

A stunning chalet

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful chalet, comfortably accommodating 13 people. Spacious and in a lovely setting with a tranquil outdoor eating space to enjoy an evening BBQ. The up-market town of Megeve is a close drive with great facilities and the ski lift at Bettex gives access to walks and views of Mont Blanc.

Beautiful mountain chalet with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful chalet. It is spacious, well equipped, super clean and tastefully decorated. Loads and loads of charm and the view out of the front windows is more than amazing! There was also a beautiful outdoor seating area with a charcoal BBQ for those hot summer nights. We loved that the house was out in the countryside with amazing hiking trails right out the front door and that there are so many things to do in the area for all different ages! Check-in was so easy and the owner (through e-mail communication) was so friendly and helpful! We highly recommend this beautiful place!

Fantastic Home For The Week

  • 5 of 5

What a get away! I came out with friends and family in April after deciding to travel as a large group which the Chalet admirably catered for.

The first thing you will notice on arrival is the stunning views from the sitting room and the open communal living area, which really formed a centre piece for our evenings. The Chalet is vast and when you wanted your own space it was easy to get lost in its labyrinth of bedrooms downstairs or spend some time in the outdoor spa.

I've been on so many ski holidays where amazing skiing was offset by moderate accommodation, but being able to enjoy the evenings as much as the days and being able to rely on the staff was pretty revolutionary. The food was excellent and the staff were warm and accommodating.

I'd honestly be hard pushed to go back to the old way of 4 bed apartment ski holidays, just doesn't compare.

10/10.

Beautiful Chalet

  • 2 of 5

This is a beautiful chalet but service is appalling for what is meant to be luxury accommodation. Any problems then you are on your own - no one there to let you in, cleaners not turning up and the place is poorly maintained with the on site staff moaning about owner!

It could be fantastic but owner clearly not interested.

Owner's Response: Dear Robert, Many thanks for your feedback and apologies that not everything was at the level you expected. As the owner, I can assure you that the chalet is a great passion of mine and I spend a lot of time making sure that the level of service and maintenance is as high as possible. We usually have 3 full time members of staff, but as you know, two members of staff had to leave for personal reasons during your stay, so we had to bring in replacements at very short notice. Again, I can only apologise for these unforseen circumstances.

Fabulous chalet & ski resort

  • 5 of 5

Two families (14 of us) stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the spacious luxurious accommodation with cozy log fire, fantastic views and outdoor spa. It has a well equipped kitchen to facilitate communal cooking as well as the added bonus of resident chef, chauffeurs and home keeper on hand to make the stay even more relaxing. The skiing met everyone's expectations and we left wanting to explore more on our next trip! Can't wait. Thank you for letting us stay.

What A Week!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic chalet, the photos really don't do it justice! Spacious and luxurious, it was clean and beautifully presented when we arrived and we settled in immediately. Our bed was unbelievably comfy and the baths are incredible after a day on the slopes (yes I tried them all).

The food and staff were brilliant, cooking up a storm every night. Kirsty made sure we were well looked after in the evenings and the gondolas are so easy to get to, the mornings were a breeze.

The skiing was great too, such a beautiful resort!

Couldn't recommend it more highly. 10/10.
