Stunning chalet, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

After a very busy time we wanted a holiday where we could relax and unwind and in Chalet Chante Clarinnes we found the perfect place. We arrived late and woke to a fresh fall of several inches of snow which was 'the icing on the cake'. The views from the chalet were wide ranging and beautiful, looking over the valley to the mountains beyond. The chalet itself was a home from home, very comfortably and thoughtfully kitted out with underfloor heating which kept us toasty throughout our stay. We walked from the chalet into the mountains, stopping for lunch at some of the lovely restaurants along the way and relaxed in the evening with a good meal and bottle of wine. A very positive experience all round. Just what we needed!

2 family holiday in February

  • 4 of 5

We (2 families of 2 adults and 2 teenagers each) stayed in this beautiful chalet for a week in February 2013. The chalet is positioned up a winding road off the main road between Gryon and Villars, and the views, especially as the sun hits the mountains on the far side of the Rhone valley, are absolutely stunning. At the time we visited, there was thick snow but the road was always passable although 4 wheel drive or snow chains are a must.

The chalet is well appointed with a double height living area on the "ground" floor and bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs. The kitchen is well equipped and we were easily able to feed 8 hungry people each night, sitting at the refectory table to eat then moving to the lounge area to watch satellite tv or DVDs or to play the board games that were provided, or to read one of the books that have been left.

The skiing area is extensive, and we were able to reach a blue run within 5 minutes of putting our boots on in the garage. At the bottom of this run, there was another 5 minutes walk to the gondola that brings you up to the top, and from there, it was possible to link to the whole area of Villars and then Les Diablerets, although this was quite a ski safari, using 10 different lifts.

For non-skiiers, apart from relaxing in the chalet, it was possible to sledge or to walk along paths in the snow.

The only criticisms are that it seems to be virtually impossible to reach anywhere without a car (although there are taxis - but they charge Swiss prices) from the chalet unless you fancy a 20 minute walk. it's not great for apres-ski unless you walk up or leave your car in the car park at the bottom and you need to be up early to get a parking space at the car-parks in Villars!

For the property itself, the mezzanine area that provides additional sleeping space (more than the beds for 8 downstairs) is great but anybody berthed there must wait for the lounge to clear before going to sleep and must be prepared to brave the stairs to get to a bathroom!

Overall, this holiday worked well for us as a group of 8, with 6 keen skiers and 2 not-so-keen or non skiers. There was plenty of hot water, underfloor heating, a separate log stove, nice towels and lots of peace and quiet.

Excellent, cosy but spacious chalet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend, 4 adults and 4 children, aged between 7 months and 2 and a half years. The chalet was exactly as described and was very warm and cosy, yet spacious and had everything we could need with demanding little ones in tow. We felt very at home and were very comfortable and with nearly a metre of snow outside it felt quite magical.

The contact with the owners and onsite contact person was always very friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend the chalet for others with children. We'll hopefully be back in Spring/summer some time soon.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased to welcome back returning renters. Its a great place to come for walking and relaxation out of the ski season.

Half Term 2012

What a fantastic Chalet. It is really hard to overstate the 5* quality of the Chalet and facilities. It was lovely and warm, and the log burner sat idle, & experience has shown that usually it's the only warm thing about some chalets!

As for the skiing, we had fantastic snow (2 foot on Tuesday night / Wednesday), and fantastic spring conditions on the Friday.

It is certainly a drive to the skiing Chalet, with two main Gondolas to chose from, La Barbeleruse and Villars offering plenty of parking and good access to the Blue runs and rest of the ski region.

We used the 4 downstairs bedrooms to sleep 9 + Cot, the mezzanine was just used by the kids.

All in all a lovely Chalet, with regular and helpful communication from the owner, who answered all our e-mails promptly and helpfully.

Great chalet for a skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was wonderful to return to at the end of a day's skiing in the region, and was exactly as described on the website; very comfortable and spacious.

With the late-afternoon sun falling on the balcony, this was a perfect place to have apres-ski cocktails, while admiring the view of the French peaks across the valley.

In the early evening, the younger members of our party could enjoy watching a DVD on the home-cinema system, while several of the grown-ups checked their emails via the wi-fi broadband connection, and others enjoyed using the luxuriously equipped kitchen. Fresh bread and cakes from the breadmaking machine became firm favourites.

Beautifully warm underfloor heating kept everything cosy, although it was convenient to use the attached garage as a cool beer store.

Chalet Chante-Clarine certainly made an excellent skiing base, and we can imagine how nice it must be during the summer months. In fact, we have an idea to get three of our classic-car owning friends to join us in a convoy there, and use it as a base for exploring some of the mountain passes and the short trip to Mont Blanc.
