Lovely accommodation, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marcel's apartment for 3 weeks(19 Dec 2014 -17 Jan 2015), with a week in between spent at another apartment as Marcel's property was not available for the full 1 month duration we required.

Other members of our family had stayed in Marcel's apartment the previous year, 2013.

The apartment is typical for the building within which it is situated & is well presented and appointed/equipped. We liked that Marcel provided towels, which other apartments do not. Travelling from Australia - we did not want to have to hire towels. It would be nice if linen was also included for the price of the rental, although I know and understand in France it is typical for the renter to hire the linen. This year Marcel installed a washing machine which was wonderful & much appreciated as being there for a month with children, it would have been difficult and costly to visit the laundrette regularly. It is to Marcel's credit that he took this recommendation from his client's & installed this. The apartment is on the 2nd floor, which would perhaps be tiring for older people and also the 2nd bedroom is up some steep wooden stairs to a mezzanine. Not a problem for our family, but perhaps for older people or young children.

The outlook to the mountains, village, main ski slope and kid's ski school slopes is beautiful. The apartment is easily situated for the village and amenities and generally we walked everywhere - ski slope, casino etc. The apartment has a garage space which we used and also a ski locker - which we did not use as we used the ski hire locker nearer the slope.

Marcel is an excellent host. He answered many questions for us that did not relate to our stay in the property, but to do with our holiday plans e.g. info on ski hire/discount, ski passes. He also went the extra mile in assisting the 1 week's accommodation that he could not provide himself in his apartment & also arrangements to store our luggage when we had to make an emergency trip to the UK during our stay. He called regularly to ensure that we were happy with everything during our stay. He also corresponded many times with us before & after our stay. These are the sorts of actions that will bring guests back. We felt looked after.

If I had any recommendations, they would be:

include bed linen in your rental rate & have the linen on the beds for arrival

a larger tv :)

more comfortable couch for watching the larger tv ha ha!

Thanks Marcel & we truly hope to see you next year.

Owner's Response: Dear Michelle and Andrew, (from Australia) We Thank you very much for these compliments which really affect us, it swamps us with gratitude and recognition! a lot of foreigners are coming to our flat "The Dôme des Sonnailles". Our slogan: OUR CUSTOMERS MUST BE SATISFIED AND WE WORK IN THIS DIRECTION TO SATISFY THEM AT BEST FOR A PLEASANT STAY. We are enchanted that the DOME OF SONNAILLES pleased you ! All the decoration was rethought last Autumn, to obtain THE LABEL "3 KEYS HOLIDAYS" by CLEFVACANCES, (a french tourism organisation recognised by the French Government) and , in a purely Savoyard style, furniture and paintings being made by local craftsmen. These 3 labels were obtained 1 year ago! The flat, in front of the mountain, very well designed with its huge parental mezzanine, where a big stay-lounge gives onto a pleasant terrace in Summer to have breakfast there and its meals in this majestic frame without screw - in - in screw. This year, we bought a washing machine for the linen, in that case you do not need to visit the laundrette regularly, that is a cost ! All the more, as the baker is approximately to buy it his bread and his fresh croissants every morning. THE WINTER, at the foot of the garden of snows and sledging strip, in 50 m alpine ski runs and cross-country skiing, rackets (snowshoes), return ski in the insured feet. Furthermore, you are 2 steps of the Olympic Center for the snow boot: swimming pool, ice rink, tenpin bowling, music, hockey matches.. In the village, many playful animations for youngs and big, beautiful Savoyard shops for your presents... THE SUMMER, Pralognan La Vanoise, Pearl of the Alps, and the Park of Vanoise are to be discovered and to be rediscovered by traveling hiking trails to approach the fauna : ibexes, chamois and marmots, in mountain sites and admire the very varied flora. Many of our customers return there every year in various periods to participate in numerous holidays summer and winter alike in the good mood in which our old people participate: the holiday of the taste, the gastronomy of our mountains, the holiday of the high mountain pasture, the holiday of guides, the Festivals of music, etc.. THE DOME DES SONNAILLES is very appreciated by our customers-tenants, who return, for his Savoyard charm as well as its comfort there, in this unique and majestic frame. As expected we are waiting for you again for the winter next Christmas 2015 and Winter 2016.Looking forward to hear from you soon, Marcel

Owner's Response: Madame, Nous vous remercions beaucoup pour votre appréciation qui reflète la réalité de votre séjour ! Vous n’avez pas hésité à louer en Avril LE DOME DES SONNAILLES dont vous avez pu bénéficier de sa nouvelle décoration, de ses nouveaux investissements, dont un lave-linge afin de ne pas surcharger vos valises. La décoration, « du pur savoyard », a été réalisée par nous-mêmes en relation avec les artisans de Pralognan La Vanoise : les meubles, les peintures sur toile, l’emmontagnée…. Vous avez aimé également le nouveau parquet en mezzanine, digne d’une « chaleur montagnarde » ainsi que sa décoration des artisans locaux travaillant le bois à merveille : les bouquetins, et d’autres motifs, les raquettes du Grand Nord, ainsi que les peintures divinement peintes sur toile, par une artiste peintre de Pralognan. Aussi bien à l’extérieur, qu’à l’intérieur, vous êtes en montagne, en Vanoise ! A 2 pas des pistes de ski alpin et de fond, au pied du jardin des neiges devant le chalet, proche du centre aqualudique pour l’après-ski, et c’est garage offert, donc, vacances sans voitures ! Chez Nous, tout se fait à pied, en skis ou en raquettes ! LE DOME DES SONNAILLES plaît énormément à nos vacanciers ! C’est la raison pour laquelle, il faut réserver longtemps à l’avance ! Tout est fonctionnel, pratique, rien ne manque, vous y êtes comme chez vous, dans un environnement exceptionnel ! Notre priorité, c’est le bien-être de nos clients afin de passer des vacances merveilleuses, notre réussite provient également d’un accueil chaleureux, d’une confiance dans nos échanges téléphoniques dès le premier instant, sur votre location, ainsi qu’au fil de l’eau, le suivi de nos vacanciers, jusqu’à leur arrivée ainsi que pendant leur séjour. . Pralognan La Vanoise est une station-village restée authentique dont les habitants et les commerçants sont très accueillants. Pralo propose beaucoup d’activités aussi bien en hiver qu’en été. Pralo est dynamique ! A bientôt de vous recevoir, à nouveau au Dôme des Sonnailles.

Appartement très agréable!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans cet appartement, décoré de façon chaleureuse.

Le propriétaire, Mr. Laurin, fait preuve d'une rapidité de réponse dans les échanges qui ont précédé cette location et nous a été de très bon conseil pour préparer notre séjour.

J'en profite également pour remercier Mlle Mienne pour son acceuil charmant!

La station familiale de Pralognan nous a permis de passer un excellent séjour avec nos 3 jeunes enfants, qui ont adoré les cours de ski de l'ESF ainsi que le domaine parfaitement accessible pour leur niveau de ski.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Depuis 10 ans, nous venons à Pralognan La Vanoise aussi bien en Eté qu'en Hiver.Cette année nous avons réservé au Dômes des Sonnailles, à La Ferme de Pralognan. Auparavant, nous avions réservé chez d'autres habitants, mais je dois dire, que le Dôme des Sonnailles est très bien aménagé et très bien équipé. RIEN NE MANQUE ! Ce qui n'est pas le cas d'autres locations dans lesquelles nous étions descendus auparavant. Quel bonheur de se ressourcer dans ce petit village resté authentique mais très diversifié en actIvités ! Des randonnées à gogo à la portée de tous, et le cadre montagnard est merveilleux.. Cette année, nous avons pu louer le Dôme des Sonnailles!! Une très belle location, à Pralognan, située dans un petit chalet, au pied des premiers chemins de randonnée, des pistes de ski, l'Hiver, de la piscine et de la patinoire. Le Dôme des Sonnailles est doté d'un garage et d'un parking collectif privé, à 2 pas du centre, et possède une très grande terrasse aménagée sans vis-à-vis, bien ensoleillée.

On s'y sent comme chez nous ! L'accueil, la propreté, le confort, coquet, le calme ...tout a été vraiment parfait ! Nous remercions le propriétaire qui fait tout pour que ses locataires soient charmés. C'est réussi !!!. Tellement satisfait que nous avons reloué le Dôme des Sonnailles pour l'an prochain.
