Well placed base for the region, clean and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property and another up the hill to accommodate our party of 26. This property worked really well for us, the cyclists stayed there, good bike storage! Cathy was really flexible as we couldn't be sure who exactly would stay there until arrival day. It is nestled down a quiet track next to an ongoing build (but no noise disturbance due to the strict French laws). It is walking distance to Morillon and Samoens, the Lac aux Dames leisure lakes and river. There is so much to do in the region, serious mountain biking, walking nearby and from the top of the gondola, go-ape at the Lac Bleu (possibly walkable - we drove) and another at Lac aux Dames but Lac Bleu was better - zip wire over the lake, reduced price for big groups and super friendly staff. we did rafting from Sixt, walked/climbed the Sixt nature reserve, gorge walked/scrambled in Samoens and saw the impressive Rouget falls, all close by (10 min drive max). We had a pool in our other property and congregated there most of the time but if the weather is with you (in Summer) and you have a car or can cycle 20km easily, then it is perfect.

Très beau chalet !

  • 4 of 5

Le chalet est très agréable avec beaucoup de place, très belle pièce à vivre, ensoleillée l'après midi. 4 jolies chambres et 3 salles de bain. Draps, serviettes de toilette fournis. Ménage inclu.

A noter, le chalet est à 550m du départ des télécabines (pas 400m) avec Google maps. Compter environ 10 mn de marche avec les chaussures de ski. A notre arrivee, le chalet était globalement propre mais pas impeccable.

Heerlijk ruim chalet

  • 5 of 5

Heerlijke vakantie gehad in een supermooi chalet. We hadden helaas weinig sneeuw maar Flaine was met de auto in 45 minuten goed te doen. Chalet is van alle gemakken voorzien en is zeer ruim voor 8 personen. Je hoeft eigenlijk niks mee te nemen want eigenaar zorgt voor bedlinnen en handdoeken etc. Super servicegericht. Keuken met alles erop en eraan en meer dan voldoende potten en pannen en bestek. Bedankt voor deze fijne vakantie en we komen zeker terug naar chalet Cimbria! Oh ja, de kids vonden de goede wifi een compliment waard. Fam. Bakker
