Fantastic comfortable chalet
By Don F on 11-Oct-2017
This property is situated in the small hamlet a few minutes from the charming village of St Jean d'Aulp and about 10 minutes’ drive from Morzine.
The property is beautifully laid out in a very traditional chalet style with a wonderful log fire in the lounge area and large well equipped and modern kitchen. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable and all have wonderful balcony views of the mountains across the valley.
Skiing is available very nearby in the charming area accessible from the St Jean d'Aulp or a short drive will take you to the well know resorts of Morzine and the other resorts of the Haute Savoy and the Portes de Soleil.
All in all a wonderful relaxing and excellent place to stay in luxurious chalet in a tranquil setting but within easy reach of major skiing resorts.

This chalet combines modern conveniences and comfort with traditional charm and cosiness. The bedrooms are all of good size and we found the beds very comfortable. In addition, the kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed for a two week stay. Crucially, there was enough hot water for 5 of us to have hot showers/baths at the end of a days' skiing.
A car is recommended, but the chalet is close to the main road and there's a good-sized supermarket a short drive away.
The hamlet is quiet and the ideal place to get a good night's sleep after a long day on the slopes.
We didn't encounter any problems when making our booking or during our stay.
Wonderful chalet perfectly located.

We had a fabulous ski holiday (with our extended family of all sizes and ages coming and going) in this lovely place. We especially liked; the amazingly comfortable beds, the classic wooden ski chalet feel, the real log fire, the short drive from Geneva airport, being able to easily access (by car & free bus) different parts of the massive Portes du Soleil ski area depending on weather and whim, the wonderful cuisine in the many mountain restaurants, the short walk to St Jean d'Aulps- a friendly village with bars and a Carrefour Express. We would definitely recommend it.

Spacious and Cosy
By George And Sally K on 09-Feb-2017
This was a fabulous chalet, very attractively presented, fresh and clean, well equipped and maintained. The bedrooms were all a very good size and the beds were comfortable. The open plan kitchen dining and seating area meant that all members of the party could join in whether preparing the meal or sipping drinks by the fire.
The short drive to the slopes meant that we explored different options for skiing areas and had no trouble parking or returning to the car at the end of the day. The local supermarket was very well stocked and nearby.
We would recommend this chalet, particularly for a group of adults who are looking for comfort at the end of the day's skiing or want alternatives for non skiing such as mountain hiking of biking.
Real home from home and very comfy

Everything from the initial booking with Vicky to the arrival went smoothly . the house is really comfortable and very well equipped. it was clean and tidy with everything to make your stay a real home from home feel.
Bas Thex is a little way out of the main action , which is what we wanted yet worth mentioning if renting this chalet you may need to hire a car.
Thanks Vicky for all the advise and help along the way ,
Charming mountain chalet in great location.

Several ski areas are easily accessible by car including delightful Morzine.
The chalet is a proper wooden chalet with a real log fire in a spacious living area, it is exceptionally stylish & comfortable inside. There are lovely views across the valley. We would go again!
