“Highly attentive, very welcoming and extrmeley co

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2014

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left Jolanda and Olaf ensured we had a memorable stay. The chalet is very well appointed and has amazing views. Basile the chef was great catering for the diverse needs of a group that included 5 kids. Jolanda laid on a great breakfast each morning and Olaf was always there when we needed to get somewhere. You can feel that they really take pride in what they are doing.

“Fantastic independently run Chalet”

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We just returned from our visit to Chalet Bibendum. We went for a long weekend with friends. Jolanda cooked us the most delicious breakfasts every day. The Chalet is really well equipped, lovely complimentary toiletries and very clean. The outdoor hot tub is brilliant fun, wood fired, authentic and very hot. They even have an honesty wine cupboard for those evenings when you fancy a night cap. Olaf was always available day and night to take us to restaurants, the slopes or collect us from the slopes. It was our first time in Chamonix and we were very taken with both the Chalet, Jolanda and Olaf's wonderful hospitality and the resort itself. A great weekend break choice. If you are thinking of booking. You don't need to think its a no brainer, just do it. Enjoy.

“Chalet Bibendum--The Perfect Place & The Perfect

“Chalet Bibendum--The Perfect Place & The Perfect
  • Submitted: Mar 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We decided to take a 3 day trip to Chamonix while staying in Geneva with family. Turns out Chalet Bibendum was the highlight of our trip! The Chalet was beautiful and Jolanda and Olaf were unbelievable! They arranged a 4-course dinner for us upon arrival. Helped shuttle our 4 kids ranging in ages from 4 - 14 to and from ski-school which was a HUGE time saver and allowed my husband and I to ski longer and the kids met us for lunch. Jolanda had all our ski's and passes ready at the ski shop on arrival, made us an amazing breakfast every morning, an après ski snack daily and had my French Press coffee and cappuccino awaiting me in the mornings. My husband and son are Gluten Free and Jolanda didn't just accommodate this but my 11 year old asked if we could take her home with us she made an unbelievable apple pie and carrot cake!! We LOVE LOVE LOVED Chalet Bibendum, Jolanda & Olaf.

“Luxury and the great outdoors all rolled into one

  • Submitted: Mar 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed here in the summer having been to Chamonix many times in all seasons. I have to say that the combination of a beautifully appointed two story wooden chalet with proximity to the forest and upper parts of Chamonix valley was magical.

We travelled with two teenage sons and my brother-in-law and we had a bedroom each. Sitting on the decking in the evening looking at snow covered Mont Blanc was so relaxing and inspiring. There's plenty to do here in the Summer too. We hired mountain bikes and a guide and had some great fun biking down the valley from the top - precipitous drops, fording streams, racing alongside the river and boulder-strewn slopes, it had everything!

We could walk, bus, train or drive into Chamonix or just pop down to the local pizzeria for dinner. One night we also booked Basile the chef to cook an amazing meal for us. The owners of the company, Jolanda & Olaf, were just so helpful and friendly - they even fired up the log-burning hot tub for us on a sunny day!

We would stay here again in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend a summer break here in the refreshing and surprisingly warm alpine summer.

“Fell in Love”

  • Submitted: Mar 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
This place is beautiful and the couple who run it are fantastic!!! The house was more than we could have ever expected and the experiences offered were priceless. We tried everything recommended from skiing, dog sledding, personal chef (best you will ever meet) and skidooing. Jolanda & Olaf who run the chalet company are two of the nicest and most helpful people you will ever have the privilege of meeting and make everything about your stay smooth sailing. It was a great end to our holiday and we will definitely be going back in the future.
