Well equipped chalet, ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Irene's chalet with two small kids. The chalet is beautiful. Much larger than seen in the photos. It has an ideal lay-out, with one large bedroom on the ground floor and three others on the second floor. We had everything we needed and more for a holiday with two babies: two high chairs, one baby cot, a baby changing area with its own sink, and a fully equipped kitchen.

The chalet is pretty close to the center of La Chapelle d'Abondance (five minute walking distance, a bit longer on the way back as it is uphill) which has a few good restaurants and a bakery. The closest supermarket is about 5-10 minute drive away and it is best to drive to one of the more central lifts to have immediate access to the heart of Portes du Soleil. We drove to Pre la Joux lift, which took us about 15-20 minutes.

Communication with Irene was very good. She has gotten in touch with us long before our holiday and has given us a lot of information upfront. She also has checked in on us during our stay. As everything worked very well, we didn't need any on site assistance, but if needed there is also a local manager who can help.

All in all, it has been a great holiday in a beautiful chalet and we would certainly be back when we are in Portes du Soleil area again.

Great chalet in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped chalet, clean and tidy home from home. Beautiful views from every window. A 5 min walk to the town, a bit longer back up the hill! Two ski resorts in walking distance although not in ski boots so car recommended! Lots of local bars and restaurants and a small supermarket all within 10 min walk. Very warm and cosy property definitely recommend it to anyone. Also great correspondence with owners always replied quickly to any query we had.

Zeer mooi chalet gunstig gelegen in skigebied

  • 5 of 5

Mooi en luxe chalet. Hele fijne skivakantie gehad met 2 kleine kinderen. Grote kamers, mooi balkon op de zon en van alles voorzien.

Vriendelijke eigenaars, heel betrokken die veel informatie kunnen geven over de omgeving.

Klein skigebied (Cret-Beni) op loopafstand, perfect om te leren skieen, maar ook leuk om zelf te skieen. Rest van Porte du Soleil te bereiken met gondel, of gemakkelijk met de auto binnen 10 min. te bereiken.

Ik raad dit chalet van harte aan.

Séjour au Sans soucis

  • 5 of 5

Mme Hobbel-van der Feijst est une personne très soucieuse de bon déroulement du séjour. Elle est très organisée, et claire dans l'organisation et les préparatifs du séjour. Ce fut un plaisir d'arriver dans ce magnifique Chalet, avec toutes les directives pour pouvoir se mettre à l'aise dès les premiers instants. Logement parfait pour les familles avec enfants en bas âge. Equipé au delà de nos espérances, nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison. Merci Irene.

Formidable séjour.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce joli chalet bien situé. Les propriétaires sont très à l'écoute ce qui est agréable.

Le séjour spacieux, permet également de profiter de la magnifique vue sur toute la vallée d'abondance.

L'équipement pour bébé nous a bien dépanné.

Petite précision par contre, qui n'a pas été gênant pour nous,mais bien qu'il s'agisse de sommiers et matelas 1 place dans les chambres du haut, ils ne peuvent pas être éloignés, cas dans le même cadre de lit.
