Why Secret Chalet chose Flaine - Grand Massif

Fell in love with the area the first time I visited. It is a beautiful alpine village which just happens to be located on some of Europe's best skiing. I built the chalet in 2012 from the ground up. I could have chosen anywhere within the French Alps and choose this spot after the search for what seemed like decades of research!

What makes this chalet unique

When you are at the Secret Chalet, you are in one of the most magnificent places in the world. You will have some of the most stunning views directly from the front door not to mention the terraces or hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was magical, roast chestnuts by a log fire with the most beautiful views, just like something of a Christmas card. The chalet it's self was spotless, large and roomy yet very cozy with everything you could possible need, entertainment wise there is something for all ages or in the lovely fully equipped kitchen. The owner has put a lot of thought into providing the perfect relaxing holiday. Yes I would recommend it!

Very spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time staying in the Secret Chalet. It is very spacious and beautifully finished with a lot of really nice additional features. All the bedrooms are large and comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the separate tv room and table football. The dining table is huge so there wasn't the usual cramped eating conditions. The hot tub is on a raised platform, so those going later in the season when the days are longer would have amazing views over the valley from it. The ski area is great for all ability levels and we were glad of the north facing slopes of the Samoens as the snow conditions throughout the alpes were very poor during the week we were there. An all round excellent chalet to which i'm sure we'll be returning.

Best accomodation by far

  • 5 of 5

Our experience of staying at the Secret Chalet was fantastic from start to finish. When we arrived the chalet was spotlessly clean and it had everything we would need for both kids and adults. The skiing in the region was brilliant and despite going out for 6 full days there were still some slopes that we had only encountered once or twice. We had such a good time, were heading back there next year!

Secret Chalet is only one hour away from Geneva airport which is serviced by numerous airlines (including budget) all year round.

Our stunning property is in a conservation area, and as such it hasn’t been ruined by excess tourism. Furthermore, Samoens has been awarded a ‘Coq d’Or’ for being one of the prettiest villages in France and is the only ski resort classified by the Caisse des Monuments Historiques.

As well being a stones throw away from 2 prominent ski lifts, Morrillion and Samoens on the Grand Massif, Secret Chalet is also only 2 km away from a stunning natural lake with a life-guarded beach, with it's own restaurant and bar. Other activities include volley-ball, tennis, horse riding, river rafting, walks. Go Ape style tree climbing adventure park. Throughout the summer there are countless daily activities provided for everybody to enjoy mostly free of charge. You'll find shows, concerts, cultural events all part of the summer fun.

For those that like the adventure holiday, there's mountain walks and bike trails as well as mountain climbing at Via Ferrata in St Jean D'Aulps, as well as the stunning Cirque du Fer a Cheval, end of the valley.
