A fabulous stay, with wonderful snow conditions
Chalet Dow is warm and cosy, we never felt crowded even with a full house of 8. The living area was spacious with beautiful views across the valley and the mountains beyond. We had a fantastic family trip and the chalet provided all we needed. Everyone has vowed to return. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home in the Alps.
Beautiful chalet, nice area, well situated
Lovely house, well equipped. Lots of space. Really enjoyed our stay with friends
Fantastic chalet. Really well equipped and plenty of room
Fantastic choice of access into the Potes du Soleil ski area with 6 stations to leave from.
The layout of Chalet Dow ideal for convivial evenings but enough space to disappear to read if preferred. Equally, if kids are getting in the way, boot them upstairs to the bunk bedroom to play on the Xbox!
Beautifull house, perfect location for MTB
Clean. Everything was there.
Fab time had by all. Will be booking again soon.
Chalet Dow was great. As Rebecca said a car is a must. Very easy to find. Great location. Nice and clean, comfortable chalet.
Warm accommodating chalet in La Chapelle dAabondance
Jan 7to20th 2017.
Lovely warm (log fire) chalet with excellent views of the valley and mountains. Chalet was adequately equipped for self catering with plenty of crockery and cutlery, although a few more pots/pans would be useful. Chalet furnishing was pleasant and comfortable especially when sitting in front of the log fire with a drink and relaxing. Bathrooms were good and hot water always available.
Really good time there as snow was fresh and plentiful.
We would definitely book here again.
Very enjoyable holiday, thanks
With the centre of Chatel only 3kms & the furthest of the 2 lifts that connect to the Portes du Soleil only a 15 minute drive from Chalet Dow, you will be well placed to enjoy any of over 650kms of pistes. Along with this is a well organised ski school for all abilities; lots of choice for ski hire & a roaring après ski scene that will finish off those with too much energy at the end of the day on the slopes! In the SUMMER months there is plenty to keep you occupied from white water rafting and other river activities, climbing, mountain biking, walking, and paragliding to visting the brand new aquatic centre - Forme d'O in Chatel and swimming from one of the many 'beaches' on the shores of Lake Geneva at Thonon-Les-Bains or Evian. Other Activities: White water rafting
