“Superb Hosting and Home-from-Home!!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A group of five of us recently stayed at the Chalet Savoy and used it as our base for a Chamonix Valley Snowboard trip. Before arrival, Elaine was contactable by email and extremely helpful. The chalet was easy to find from the main road and is clearly sign posted; parking is plentiful and access to the Les Houches ski area is relatively easy with a short walk up the hill to the Pistes. We had access to a drying room and Ski storage room with facilities including ski clamps and irons to assist re-waxing.

The chalet hosts, Oliver, Elaine and Dylan the dog make the chalet, their knowledge of the area is superb and they really cannot do enough to help. Our car unfortunately broke down during our stay and not only did the hosts pick up the mantle to run us around to garages and act as interpreters with mechanics but they also took us to the various ski locations including a run to Verbier in Switzerland. The couple clearly love what they do and the area in which they do it and the facts and figures along with the constant joking really did help to make the holiday superb.

Elaine provided excellent meals with a continental breakfast each morning, afternoon tea with fantastic homemade cakes and a great, cooked, three course meal in the evening - despite all the exercise, we have all returned home having put on weight!!

This is by no means an ultra modern, chocolate box chalet but it is functional and homely and the upstairs lounge with its wood panelling and comfortable leather seating is a real home from home. The sauna and hot tub are great additions and sitting out late at night, under the stars, in the mountains, with a beer or wine in hand is as near perfection as possible.

Nothing was too much trouble for Oliver or Elaine and we were made to feel really welcome in their home and we look forward to returning in the future.

My only tip would be to make sure Dylan doesn't get hold of your gloves as you'll have a chase to get them back!!
