About Frances Nichol

We are two families, the Nichols and the Wolfes and we live in Northumberland in the UK. We have 3 lively girls between us and have been really good friends for a long time.

We have always enjoyed an outdoor life and now the girls are all old enough to enjoy skiing we are hoping to have lots of fun holidays together in the chalet in the years to come. We also hope to enjoy summer breaks and take advanatge of the wonderful area around the chalet.

Frances Nichol purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Frances Nichol chose Portes du Soleil

We have been here on holiday a number of times and always loved the area. Such a lovely country feel but with great places to eat so close by and lots to do. The skiing is great with such a variation of slopes for all abilities, plus the ski schools are great and the children have loved going.

The distance from Geneva to the chalet is a comfortable drive which is a big advantage.

We have loved our holidays in the area so much we decided to buy so we can come more often.

What makes this chalet unique

The property has everything we need to enjoy our stay, its so comfortable, roomy and cosy. Its ideal to come home to in the winter with the wood burner and in the summer with the outdoor area to eat outside.

The children are entertained with the wii and dvds. So while they are off having fun we can relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the wonderful views.

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent two weeks at this chalet. It is very well equipped, with more than enough cutlery, crockery and kitchen equipment. The location was stunning, and the local village, small but with most things available.We managed trips to Switzerland and Italy, as well as Chamonix, Annecy and Moraine. There are also lovely places not far from the chalet, make sure you have a wild flower book! The roadsides are stunning. The owners Jenni and Frances, dealt with any questions etc. very quickly, which is not always the case. We would definitely book the chalet again, if we went back to the French Alps.
