Guestbook comments from the owner

'It was FAB!! We even managed to 'snowboard' (when not sliding down the slope on my backside!!)

The Chalet was beautiful, the hot tub was great. We are already discussing coming back!!

Thanks for checking up, i am having my first day back at work, and not enjoying it at all!!

Kind regards


'Sorry i haven't been in touch I have been meaning to since we returned but somehow have got sucked back into manic family life!! We had a great time, the chalet was wonderful, everything was beautifully clean and suited the two families perfectly. We had great weather with snow and sunshine, I can't fault anything!!

We will be back.....



'Hi Peter, thanks for the email. We have had a wonderful week and can highly recommend the chalet to everyone. The location is fantastic with easy access to the whole of porte du soleil ski area and we were also very impressed with local ski area as well bearing in mind our group ranged from novice to advanced skiers!

Fantastic chalet with brilliant and generous hosts

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Chalet Etoile. The food, accommodation and location were all great for a relaxing ski holiday. Janet and Larry really do go above and beyond both during and after your stay. I was unfortunate enough to lose my phone on the piste during our stay. After it was handed in to the police, Janet and Larry were generous enough to arrange for this to be collected and delivered to me the next week in Geneva, something I am hugely grateful for! It completely topped off what had already been a great trip!

Brilliant holiday, great price!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely chalet, in a lovely location.

We are a family of 5, who travelled with my sister-in-law who is a family of 4. Perfect layout for the two families. They were upstairs, we were on the ground floor, with the living accommodation between us.

Kids loved the jacuzzi, and watching kids channels on the British Sky, when the weather kept us indoors. The kitchen was fantastically equipped, with washer/dryer, dishwasher and right down to herb and spices, tea, coffee and some condiments if required.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful, with lakes, swimming pools, ski areas, pretty walks, supermarket all in less than a 15 minute drive.

Would highly recommend this chalet.

So good we`ve booked again for next year

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Chalet Etoile in January 2011 with ten other like minded skiers and enjoyed it so much that we booked the chalet again upon our return to Blighty. Finishing a days skiing/boarding with a Hot tub before going up the Hill to dine at "Pere Bill`s" was something else.

We found the chalet spacious and equipped to a high standard, the caretaker even arranged our lift passes and delivered them to us on arrival prior to hitting the Piste the following day. We thought this was a fantastic touch.

The communal table was a brilliant size for our early morning coffee as we planned our Mountain routes and dining preferences for the evening. The local "Carrefour" en route to morzine has a lovely selection of Wines, cidres, Port and Cheese.
