Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned from a great week with friends and family we booked after staying at the sister chalet in Vaujany last year which was also great. Excellent hosts and really looked after us all, ferrying us back to and from Oz station village where the Poutran & Alpette lifts are although the drive is approx 5 mins away. The cooking was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

Oz is a small village with only a few restaurants and bars so if you want a quiet and family oriented trip then this is the place for you. This was perfect for us for a couple of drinks at the end of a long days ski in a relaxed atmosphere before being picked-up each evening, although the 40 somethings and kids had a great boogie at the Folie Douce at the top of the Marmotte 1 lift in Alpe Duez one sunny afternoon !

Great winter holidays !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience thanks to an exceptional team on site but also through the overall Small Wonders staff from booking to the way back home. We enjoyed every bit of it ! How great to wake up with a hearty and delicious breakfast waiting for you... When we were ready to go up the mountain, we would be brought by private shuttle and have a nice time on the slopes before to go back "home" (as it always felt like home...) for tea and cake. The evening dinner was amazing and relaxing in the hot tub or sauna whenever you want is certainly a good taste of luxury. We will definitely come back.

Absolutely fabulous :)

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and 2 children (ages 4 and 6) stayed at Chalet Lingayoni in July of this year. From the moment we stepped onto the property we were amazed by the beauty of the surroundings and the Chalet itself. Our apartment in the chalet consisted of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room and kitchen. Everything was new and super-clean!

The downstairs area where breakfast and dinner is served is so beautiful and the food at the chalet is to die for. The couple running the chalet were wonderful. They were so helpful for and gave us lots of information about the area. Our kids also had a wonderful time. There is so much to do for the little ones and the Wii downstairs is great.

You will not regret staying at The Lingayoni - we can't wait to come back to it soon :)
