Wow- a great base for a truly amazing holiday:-) The home was even better than the pictures, very clean and totally as described. The Marshall Santamaria family were super hosts from start until the end of the stay. The communication was great with lots of handy tips and hints to help maximise the opportunity of the home and area. It is very easy to hop over into France for the markets or if the weather is bad on the Swiss side of the mountains. The pass offers very good value and enables you to use the train that stops at the front door very easily. It would be possible to stay here without a car probably as this local train connects with the main network. In short, we had an amazing time, the home was first class and we would not hesitate recommending it and would definitely like to stay again:-)

We had a wonderful 3 day stay in this beautiful chalet. The scenery is spectacular, the location is perfect for both easy access to transportation and some food & recreation, but remote enough to be very peaceful. The furniture is comfortable, the place is spotless, has all functional and modern appliances, and the internet is very fast. The villages of Champery and Troistorrents are well worth the short ride or hike!

The chalet is really great, exactly what showed in the photos. Gavin and Anna are very nice and flexible. The location is a perfect place be it during the ski season (15 min by train) or during summer, as it is only 10 min walk away from thermal baths. I strongly recommend Gavin and Anna's chalet!

The chalet was just about perfect for us, we had a fantastic time. Location was excellent with a 10 minute drive on an easy road to Champery for some excellent walks, yet being down a minor road there was little traffic to disturb the peace and quiet ( during our time there the train was not running either), so we could sit in the garden and watch the sunset turning the dent di midi peaks red without anything to disturb the tranquility. The chalet had everything we needed, our grown up daughters appreciated a bedroom each and we had plenty of space and facilities in the kitchen and lounge. Gavin was very helpful and had we wanted anything or had any problems I am confident he would have helped - but everything went smoothly so we had no need of assistance. I have no hesitation in recommending the chalet :-)

Hi, we are Gavin and Anna. We are a UK / Spanish / soon to become Swiss family with 2 young kids. We love spending family time in our chalet, eating outdoors on the terrace, cosy winter evenings, exploring the local area and skiing, snowboarding, road cycling, mountain biking and hiking.
