We are Therese and Pieter Janse Gasser and we have been the proprietors of Solneige since 2010. Together with our Golden Retriever Yara and the cats Minou, Genepi and Snoes we will give you a warm welcome. You can be assured that we will do our utmost to make your holiday in this wonderful spot a time to remember.
Therese has the Swiss nationality and has worked in the Netherlands for a long time as a civil servant and a managing director. Pieter is Dutch and has many years of experience as a consultant in the field of environment, infrastructure and transport.
When we turned forty five we decided that, however much we enjoyed our work at the time, we also wanted to do other things in life. After some years of searching intensively we found our home in Vaujany: a place where we can put into practice what we want to do, which is to have people enjoy themselves in our own chambres d’hotes.
Our aughters, Yvonne (23), Marion (21) and Karin (19) live and study in the Netherlands. They will join us on a regular basis during their holidays.

Thank you both for a really wonderful week! Your delicious dinners each evening where superb and presented with perfection. We are so glad we've booked to come again! Fiona and Peter.
Your warm hospitality has been so appreciated! You have made us feel welcome-and have fed us so well. This place is beautiful, but even more has been your happy table and friendly guests. We'll remember this for all our lives! Paula and Steve Brusig.
Thank you for a fantastic stay! It is one which will be memorable for years to come. The wonderful atmosphere, the food....oh the food! Again thank you for your hospitality and attention to detail! Amy Fitzer
Beautiful, comfortable, clean chalet near Vaujany. Therese and Pieter went out of their way to look after us all and provided delicious breakfasts, evening meals and afternoon cakes. They were happy to adapt the menus for the particular needs of our large group of 15 between the ages of 13 and 50 (ish), ie non fish eaters, non cheese eaters, non egg eaters - and that was just Richard! If I had to choose, my favourite meal was the pork fillet mignon, and my favourite dessert was the crème brûlée. All meals were beautifully presented too. The children loved the hot tub, and went in most evenings. I would recommend this chalet.
Jan and Mirjam, we had a fantastic stay with you!
If we were able to give Michelin Stars we would give you 3***
The food was fantastic and even more the welcome and hospitality.
Many thanks and we hope to come again!!
Hedwig and Olivia.

Dat gecombineerd met écht gastheerschap op een zeer fraaie locatie. Het chalet heeft mooie kamers met elk een fantastisch uitzicht. De skibus stopt voor de deur en brengt je snel naar de gondel van het mooie skigebied van Vaujany en Alpe d'Huez.
