Perfect home from home chalet in a village setting that's close to slopes

  • 5 of 5

We're a mixed ability family group, so needed a large chalet where we could feel at home but also allow us to go to La Poya in Le Buet (for beginners) as well as Tete de Balme 'the mountain' in Vallorcine for the more experienced. We've stayed a few years now at La Rocaille and love it. It's perfect because we can walk along the river to both Le Buet and Vallorcine, catch the ski bus or drive. There's also the free train Vallorcine-Le Buet which goes to Chamonix but I don't know why you'd want to go there when the Vallorcine region is so beautiful and unspoilt! The chalet itself has the traditional wooden savoyard feel with a path up through the snow, nestled in the mountains with blue sky mountain views out of the window. It's warm and cosy, with a log fire which is essential for an evening in, an upstairs kiddy/TV room, also essential as we had 4 teenagers with us, working wifi and a nice large table to eat around. There are enough rooms to escape each other, and a good sized utility room for washing and drying out clothes after skiing. Try out the Ferme a Trois Ours for milk eggs cheese etc, just a 5 minute walk down the road, and we liked Moon Tine for an apres ski vin chaud/hot chocolate with their new luges - massive tyres that slide along the snow... possibly just for children, but I had to try them :0). La Poya has had a small update with snackfood now served out of a silver airstream, and a new covered see-through dome eating area. We love La Poya as you can keep tabs on everyone, younger teenagers can have lessons and snacks by themselves without getting lost, a great area for a family of mixed ability to relax into the local ski vibe. There's also a black mogul area at the top of lift 2, and a few areas of trees to fall over in, which kept us occupied until day 3 when we all went 'up the mountain'. Every Thursday evening the ESF instructors do a 'lumiere' torchlit ski down La Poya with vin chaud/hot chocolate and music - a lovely treat. Thoroughly recommende if you want an authentic skiing holiday for the family with friendly locals and a lovely chalet to feel part of village life !!

Un séjour superbe

  • 5 of 5

Concernant la situation du chalet, il est à une dizaine de minutes du village de Vallorcine à pied où vous trouverez commerces, remontées mécaniques sur le domaines de Balmes et liaisons avec l’ensemble de la vallée de Chamonix. Le chalet est très calme et offre une vue imprenable sur la vallée.

Concernant le logement, il est très confortable. Les chambres sont spacieuses. J'ai apprécié particulièrement la salle de vie avec cheminée.

En ce qui concerne l'équipement, rien à dire, tout est parfait.

Chalet à recommander à tout amateur de ski ou de la montagne en général qui cherche à fuir le côté trop touristique des stations classiques.

The chalet is spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is situated in a relatively quiet and secluded area of Vallorcine but is still fairly well located for getting to the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

"Le chalet est très bien équipé et décoré avec soin et originalité. Sa situation à l'écart de la route lui donne un charme supplémentaire (surtout avec l'abondance de neige de cette année. Une suggestion si des travaux étaient envisagés : mettre une cloison mobile entre le WC et la salle de bain de l'étage. Vallorcine est un petit village montagnard calme et sympathique."
