Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for allowing us to stay in your chalet last week through Rwanda Aid.



We had such a lovely time and the chalet was amazing - so beautifully done up and so comfortable.



We did so much in our week - Treetop Go Ape, Rafting, cascading, via ferrata, hiking, tennis, canyoning… we all came back so much fitter than when we went! I think our highlight was the canyoning which we did on our last day as it was such a beautifully sunny day and the canyon was stunning - it was certainly quite challenging for all of us at times but gave us a real sense of achievement having done it.

Notes:
The interior design is contemporary but cosy with wooden floors and large south facing windows in the living area complimenting the high ceiling and creating both space and light. The design feels alive and trendy and at the same time warm and comforting as a result of a clever combination of red leather and black slate. Built on 3 levels it offers an ideal family rental with the two bedrooms on the top floors having the benefit of added privacy.There is plenty of room for everybody to relax , but at the same time allows for a cosy family meal etc. The terracing allows for you to make the most of the sun with a breakfast terrace with wonderful mountain views, and the main area allowing for lovely evening meals or barbecues with panoramic views of the mountains from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc ! A truly lovely and well planned chalet for a wonderful holiday !

Simply stunning in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most superb week at this 5 star chalet. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well furnished, with luxury linens and fluffy towels. Lidia gave us a lovely welcome to the chalet which is immaculate, and we all felt at home within minutes! We were 7 adults; me, my daughter and 3 of her uni friends, and a couple who are family friends. There was copious space for all of us, plenty of cutlery and crockery and cooking utensils, even fondue and raclette machines! The view from the balcony is stunning, and if you're into astronomy, the sky is incredible at night. The garden is well tended and relatively private due to the clever shrub planting.

As a resort, there is plenty to do. The walking is limitless, there are 2 swimming lakes, a swimming pool, beach club, high ropes, crazy golf, mountain biking, 2 golf courses, etc. There are 3 excellent, well stocked supermarkets, and you can't go without visiting Taillens for your daily bread! And my secret tip? Go to David, l'Instant Chocolate. I challenge anyone to find chocolate which is better than the nougat thins!

Everyone in our group had an incredible time, we all felt that we'd had a proper holiday and they have all asked if we can go again next year! Patrick? Can we?!

Superb accomodation in lovely setting - Five Star

  • 5 of 5

Patrick was superbly helpful with perfect directions. Met at chalet by local French hosts who could not do enough to help us get settled in to the Chalet.

Chalet accomodation was perfect for our large group (we were four adults and five children). Kitchen in modern and fully equiped. Bedrooms were all large with great wardrobe space and all with first class en-suite bathrooms.

I would thoroughly encourage a visit. We went and had a superb time taking in all of what the area offers in the summer - we enjoyed great hiking as adults and lots to do for children.

Great holiday - thank you for the kind loan of your chalet.

Very comfortable chalet at a nice place

  • 5 of 5

Patrick, the owner, is very kind and always helpful with any queries you have. The warm welcome by the hosts Lidia and Philippe was extraordinarily personal. Both introduce us to the chalet and all the facilities. The property was extremely clean and the equipment of the chalet is great and matches full with the description. Further we loved the individual style and design of furniture and art. Summarizing all it was a fantastic week in this chalet and in Crans Montana.

First class,quality chalet with a view to savour.

  • 5 of 5

Modern,clean,well equipped chalet fitted to very high standard. So homely its a shame to leave it with a roaring wood-burner and comfortable lounging area to relax after a days skiing. Patricks touch is throughout with clean lines from the kitchen to the fittings. Gaze out of any window to endless views of the alps.You wont wake to better.

With well appointed kitchen and great showers,baths and utilities room its a home from home. We were met with a friendly local welcome and given a guided tour of the property and were sad to say goodbye.

The chalet is on the approach to the ski area which is just up the hill with a comfortable mix of skiing and eating. Crans has a few shops in particular Taillens coffee shop with its 'chocolat maison' will make you join the gym when you get home.

All said,a fantastic spot to spend some time,we were a group of 9 and had an absolute blast. Thank you Patrick!!

Charming chalet in beautiful Crans Montana

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend a week in this lovely chalet in September of 2013. Our priorities when renting a home are a quiet location, king size bed, functional kitchen and cleanliness. It exceeded our expectations in every way – clean, organized, fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. The interior decorating flows throughout the house, the colors are sophisticated and cheerful. It feels like somebody’s home, not a rental. We’ve owned rental houses and been renters all over the world, this one is at the top of our list. I just wish it wasn’t so far from San Francisco.
