Excellent, beautiful, convenient chalet!
This chalet was really perfect for our holiday. It was clean, well-maintained and had a very homely feel. It was very convenient and easy for getting to and from the ski fields at Samoens and Morillon each day. Very handy dry room for all our ski gear, excellent heating system and fireplace, good kitchen supplied with the utensils we needed. Beautiful view over Verchaix at night and of the surrounding mountains in the morning. It comfortably slept the 6 of us that stayed here. Highly recommend this chalet!
Great accomodation in a great location.
The Chalet is a good size, good size bedrooms and great layout. It was clean, and well presented. Instructions for getting to accomodation and using household equipment are good. I enjoyed my stay immensely and found the Chalet a great base for getting around the region. Paul.
Fabulous view! Beautifully appointed.
We really enjoyed our week long stay at Chalet La Chenaz during September 2016. On arrival we found the chalet very clean & it is obviously well maintained. Very peaceful location.
The weather was still quite warm so we were able to explore Verchaix & the surrounding villages by foot. Although we did have a car it was lovely to be able to walk many of the tracks enjoying the colours of Autumn.
Enjoying breakfast on the balcony or having an evening drink watching the sun set was always a treat.
The view from the balcony was beautiful both during the day & in the evening as the lights of the village below came on.
The chalet was very well located for exploring further regions by car. An easy drive to Geneva, Annecy, Cluses, Chamonix, Taninges, Samoens.
The beds were very comfotable and the kitchen well equipped. A very relaxed atmosphere our days could just as easily be spent curled up on the comfy couch with a book & the view. You could choose to do as little or as much as you liked. There were many outdoor activities available.
We would also love to experience the chalet during winter but would happily return during the summer months too.
We would certainly recommend Chalet La Chenaz.
A Beautiful, welcoming chalet with fantastic views
A very comfortable chalet with a wonderfully warming wood burner.
The chalet felt good as soon as we stepped inside, with plenty of space for the seven of us; four adults and three children. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean.
We were skiing and found the garage and utility room very easy to access and convenient at the end of a hard day on the mountain. The heater dried the boots and ski clothing perfectly and the garage with ski rack easily catered for six pairs of skis and a snowboard.
This was our ninth year in the valley and this chalet was one of the best we've stayed in.
Our only criticism, a minor thing really is that if you have a car with little ground clearance the drive way up to the chalet can be a little difficult. The best way to approach it is by driving up very slowly front first as reversing grounds the front of the car out. We have a new VW Passat sport and it scraped every time. Our friends have a Four wheel drive pick up and had no problem.
All in all 5/5 and thank you to our host Amanda.
Great location, excellent views
Clean, well appointed property;well maintained. Easy to book and helpful advice from the owner. We enjoyed fantastic walking in magnificent scenery.
Idyllic mountain holiday in super chalet
Excitement was high by the time we had negotiated our way up the mountain to the chalet at Verchaix, catching glimpses of snow-covered mountains all the way up. And the excitement continued as we opened the door to the chalet and found a log fire ready to light, fairytale nooks and crannies to explore, a beautifully equipped kitchen (inspired the cooks among us), and multiple balconies from which to watch the stars at night and the mountains in the morning. With charming bedrooms with comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and a wonderfully effective drying room downstairs for drying even the wettest of ski clothes after a day on the slopes this chalet made for a lovely home-away-from-home holiday.
We had mainly rented the chalet for a ski holiday, so we spent our days on the slopes at nearby Samoens. We drove to the slopes each day, an easy 10-minute drive, but there was also a regular bus service from right outside the front door of the chalet to the foot of the slopes, ideal for teenagers who wanted to sleep in and anyone who did not want to ski full days.
With such a well-equipped kitchen and the lure of the log fire we typically ate our meals at home, shopping at the supermarket that was a convenient stop on the way home from the ski slopes in the evening or at specialty stores in Samoens. However, this was not necessary as there were restaurants within walking distance of the chalet offering a true taste of France and catering well for families.
I would recommend that you stay at least a week, especially if skiing, as it takes a day or two to familiarise with the routine and with the slopes.
We had a wonderful stay and definitely hope to return.
