Amazing views, welcoming and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families sharing the chalet for a week in the summer. We were instantly smitten by the views of the mountains around us and spent a lot of time leaning on the balcony saying "wow". The chalet had everything we needed and both adults and children settled happily on the 3 floors. Plenty of parking and a huge garage to store bikes was helpful. The surrounding area had plenty to offer and we enjoyed trips up the cable cars to walk in the mountains and also drives to the lakes to swim. The kitchen had everything we needed and 3 toilets meant no queues. Great to have a DVD player in a separate room allowing peaceful evenings for the adults when the children needed to relax. We had many barbecues on the balcony, with plenty of seating and a big table. A 10 minute drive to the supermarket, shops and cafes, so no time wasted in the car, although it was of course a steep and winding road. Philipe and Stephanie were very helpful but didn't intrude. We all want to visit again next year and will definitely stay here if possible. Thank you for an amazing week and hope to see you soon.

Family holiday in the French Alps

  • 4 of 5

A large house with many bedrooms, great for large families. We enjoyed many dinners on the large balcony overlooking Mt Blanc, as we had 2 weeks of very hot weather. The downstairs bedrooms were lovely and cool. Overall very clean. If the weather is not great (or in winter) the living room would be too small for a large group, and the kitchen is big enough for only 1-2 people at a time. The town of St Gervais Les Bains (the closest shop) is accessible only by car down a very windy and steep road. The town has a good selection of restaurants and the surrounding area has many hiking and swimming opportunities.

Atemberaubender Ausblick, schönes Haus, sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

wir haben uns als große Familie sehr wohl gefühlt in diesem schönen, gepflegten, gemütlichen Haus, für alle war es passend von den Räumlichkeiten, von der Ausstattung her fehlt nichts, es hat einen persönlichen Charme, was ich sehr schätze, der Ausblick von der Terasse auf den Monat Blanc ist atemberaubend, die Anbindung an das Skigebiet auf dem Mont d´Arbois ist gut, trotz des wenigen Schnees standen 19 verschiedene Pisten zur Verfügung, Philippe und seine nette Nachbarin Stephanie waren sehr hilfsbereit, ein sehr angenehmer Kontakt, vielen Dank Philippe wir werden Sie als Vermieter von Herzen gern weiterempfehlen!

Great location - magnificent views

  • 4 of 5

I rented Philippe's chalet to celebrate my parents's 50th anniversary. We invited some of their friends over. I wanted comfortable accommodation, easy access to walking paths and good views from the terrasse, for not everybody was able to walk.

All of these criteria were met. The chalet, albeit smaller in reality than on the pictures, offers everything promised in the description. All the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable. The kitchen is small but sufficiently equipped for holiday cooking.

The terrasse was great at any time of the day and perfect for pre-diner drinks. The views from it are absolutely superb and we enjoy them every day, be it on bright and sunny afternoons or on eery misty mornings!

On one occasion we went out for diner to the nearby Ferme de Cupelin - literally 5 minutes walk down the road -, which was a pleasant surprise: the food is nice, creative and well presented and the staff is very friendly. We particularly enjoyed the bottle of Sartene Blanc from Corsica !

There are several walks available directly from the chalet, some climbing up to the Bettex cable car and the Mont d'Arbois, some strolling to nearby Combloux - with beautiful views on Saint Gervais and Sallanche valleys, and on the Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi on the way back -, some winding down to Saint Gervais, the Crepin waterfalls and the Jardin Thermal in Le Fayet.

My parents and their friends were delightetd with their stay . All of us want to thank Philippe for accommodating such a special occasion!

Very comfortable chalet close to a great resort

  • 5 of 5

We hired this chalet for most of the season (Jan until April) and had a great time.

Location was very good, a short drive into the town and the main lift.

Even though the snow was not as good as previous seasons we still managed to ski from the chalet during the main holiday weeks.

Very easy to access other close by resorts also for extra variety.

Access was fine, but a car with winter tyres is needed because the roads are quite steep in this area.

Loads of room in the chalet, five rooms all with comfortable beds, very charismatic layout.

Plenty of storage room including a garage that was very handy for ski, food and drink storage.

Only slight issue was a lack of comfortable seating in the lounge area when we had a good number of guests around for the evening.

Local bus stop very handy if you don't wish to use the car to access the ski area, but be aware this only operates at peak weeks.

Philippe the owner is very nice and a pleasure to deal with.

Very happy to totally recommend this chalet as excellent value.


see for a blog of our holiday in St Gervais :)
